Trivia

ST and Amiga conversions were planned, and advertised as 'coming soon' at one point, but never released, apparently due to 'technical difficulties' (WEC Le Mans never reached those systems for the same reason, yet it was somehow possible to convert both to numerous 8-bit systems?!?).

Indeed, Ocean was working on the conversion and in 2014 a working disk with a demo of Rastan for the Atari ST was found. The demo is running, but far from finished.
