    Thanks to you guys too for such nice comments - it was really just written out of Chenghou Project frustration at 3am when my eyes had gone too blurry from looking at the screen - didn't expect such kind feedback.

    I keep popping back and making corrections here and there, so hopefully will get rid of any errors soon. Think the biggest problem was that I kept switching tense - the narrator would never be in a position to tell this story, so it's really just a recording of his internal thought processes. It is very light hearted though, I don't think that anybody worthy of being a Wipeout pilot would be contemplating the 'Robots Build Robots' sign in reality

    Was very thrilled to hear it described as 2nd best story though (not worthy, not worthy)... but this makes me very eager to know which is the best? I want to read it!

    Wordsmiths both it would seem.

    Can't help myself if there is a unfilled crossword puzzle to do.

    It's mine.

    In regards to being the 2nd best story,that's only a opinion, based on a opening introduction done by somebody [Lance might remember]about 6 months ago.

    Then you have the "Official back story" written for the game by forum members here.
    The people who have designed the various versions of Wipeout are forum members [Studio Liverpool]

    You would be able to read if you have the original booklets/game instructions that come with all the previous wipeout games

    Sorry.I can't be bothered editing this,but after reading it ,well it seems a bit adroit.

    No harm intended,ignore me as would be your want,your entitled to it.

    It would be awesome if Studio Liverpool will release CG movie related to WipEout! ...or some studio will receive rights to make the full length REALLY NICE movie about these great competitions

    They do have ejector seats, but as far as I'm concerned, you're always hanging on til the last second trying to make it round a corner, and your chances of actually managing to eject within the microseconds available would be slim to zero

    It have to be automatical to save pilot's life! It is the future but I think it is not brutal

    I didn't consider an automated eject - but not sure how that would work within the split seconds available.

    In any case it's just a silly story based upon my own perceptions of playing Wipeout HD - with all those canons, plasma bolts, mines, missiles and rockets and missiles flying around, I can't help feeling that there would be a considerable loss of life - but that's just my own impression and I'm sure that's not the way that the makers of Wipeout would have us see it.

    It's lucky I forgot to include the paragraph about the thirty seven spectator fatalities in the previous year's race
