London, 1 June 2006 - Player One Limited, leading global publisher of games and content for mobile phones, is revving up for the release of its latest game - Jenson Button Grand Prix Racer. The objective of Jenson Button Grand Prix Racer is to crown Formula 1 superstar Jenson Button winner of the Class One Championship. Starting as a Class Three driver, Jenson must work his way up the classes by winning all of the championships. Starting in Class Three as a beginner, you will then move on to intermediate Class Two and then Class One, expert level, by gaining the highest number of points at the end of each class season. Upon completion of each race of each class you will be awarded a certain number of points depending on your finishing position. The driver with the most points at the end of the championship season wins and is promoted through the classes.
