SCi™ Entertainment Group plc (SEG) today announces the signing of a license agreement whereby SCi has acquired the exclusive world-wide rights to develop and publish computer and video games based on the world famous 'MILLE MIGLIA' car race.

'MILLE MIGLIA' has been described as "the most beautiful race in the world". The race began in 1927 over 1000 miles of spectacular Italian scenery - from Brescia in the north to Rome in the south. It has been graced by some of the greatest cars ever built - including the Aston Martin DB2 Berlinetta; Ferrari 860 Monza Spider Scaglietti and the Mercedes 300 SLR. Similarly, all the racing 'greats' have competed in it - Moss, Fangio, & Collins. In 1955 Stirling Moss set a record in his Mercedes 300 SLR, completing the course in 10 hours, 47 minutes and 48 seconds - a record that still stands to this very day.

Bill Ennis, Sales and Marketing Director of SCi commented, "The history of the race and the quality the cars makes this a magical license".

SCi's previous driving game 'Carmageddon' has sold over 1.6 million units and has generated revenues of over £10 million.

'MILLE MIGLIA' will be released during the 2nd quarter of 2000 to coincide with the race in May. It is intended that initially the game will be released on the Playstation format followed by 'Next Generation' console systems and Internet on-line gaming.
