PRESS RELEASE
RACE International Media Attention Continues...

Amman, August 31, 2005

Following our press release of June 29, The Roman Army And Chariot Experience (RACE) has been the subject of continued international media attention in Europe and the United States.

Associated Press (AP) wrote a feature article, published on July 3 in forty U.S. newspapers including Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.

That same article was published on more than eighteen U.S. websites including CNN and ABC News.

The National Public Radio (NPR) programme was aired in the U.S. on August 15, reaching approximately twelve million listeners.

BBC World filmed the RACE performance in Jerash on August 22 and will air the programme mid September.

A British team from The Daily Telegraph interviewed and photographed the performance August 21-23. The article will be published as a several page spread in early September.

The published articles and the NPR radio broadcast are available on our company website www.jerashchariots.com under “RACE in the Media”.

Stellan Lind, RACE Chairman: “The international interest in our performances in Jerash is really snowballing. We are, of course, very happy with this development as it creates awareness about RACE and will also assist in spreading knowledge about Jordan as a premium tourist destination.”
