Riding with Lackhart's LancersThe cracking of super-heated air makes my head snap round. A flash of searing light lances across the landscape, followed by a second. In the distance, I see a body crumple.
“Down and out!” The excitable voice of Rich Lackhart bursts from the radio speaker. “Let’s keep it moving, Lancers.”
Another morning’s commute for a mid 21st Century haulage gang.
Motorway Patrol interviewIt is 4am on a cold September morning. Patrol Sergeant Dave Chapman takes a deep draught of hot tea, standing at the service station in the shadow of the Severn Bridge. For the past two hours, he has driven from London at a sedate 55 mph, showing the flag and protecting his patch. Now he takes a well-earned break.
“Everyone seems to think that we have high-adrenaline lives; that the excitement never stops. We have our moments, but actually, most of what we do is just remind people that we are here; that there is a law; and that someone cares if they break it. That is often enough.”
23/9/55: Babylon is a true inspiration in these times of darkness. Under the dynamic leadership of Sir Hector McDonaugh, the company has thrived while so many others failed. Read more

Welcome to the Royal Automobile and Autoduelling Club
It is the year 2055. The Great Scourge, a virulent disease that induces violent psychosis in those who survive its fever, has swept through the world. Entire communities were destroyed and those that survived withdrew into themselves, distrustful of strangers and fearful of anyone who may be carrying the infection.
Great Britain is no more, as the country broke into eight independent territories. London maintains a strict quarantine, protected by the Great Wall built inside the M25 and completed at ruinous cost in 2047. Across the country, the Motorway Patrol struggle to keep the main roads open. Away from major roads, only the most heavily-armed dare to go.
Welcome to the Royal Automobile and Autoduelling Club, the organisation dedicated to keeping the roads open and communication alive.
This site is dedicated to Car Wars, the autoduelling game of the future created by Steve Jackson Games.
