Eric Vigouroux participates in the release of a new video game.

As part of the worldwide release of its new game "Baja edge of control", the American company THQ Inc., which is among the leaders in video game publishing, has contacted Eric Vigouroux via its French subsidiary to participate in the release of its new product. THQ´s target was to involve a French pilot in order to show the realism of its new game featuring Trophy-Trucks identical to that of Eric.

"Eric Vigouroux is the only European pilot who successfully operates, since several years, this type of vehicles made in the USA, he becomes, hence, the natural choice as the ideal candidate to accomplish this mission," said Christophe Ribero press relations officer of THQ France. An appointment was made on the beautiful Castle-Lastours with several journalists sent by Eurosport, M6 Turbo, Motors TV, etc.

After having introduced the game "Baja edge of control" once, which had been specially made available by THQ, all participants were able to experience the incredible performance of the play whose realism is breathtaking.

According to Eric Vigouroux "All the technical details of vehicles are carbon copies as well as the landscapes inspired by the Baja Californian desert (Mexico). This game is of remarkable accuracy." A few hours later, the time had come to move to reality. Finished the intemperate runway with a new car for each new game!

Alternately, the journalists invited could take place successively alongside Eric for a test of natural size at a steady pace, a very steady pace, to be always close to the spirit of the game "at the edge of control!" At the end of the day the verdict was unanimous: Baja is a complete success!

After this dual meeting of virtual and real steering, Eric joined Paris to attend the opening of Mondial de l'Auto before flying off for San Diego where he is actively preparing his 2009 season.
