My cosmic beauty, my ironclad blast, I am Rocky Racer and I am gunna take you to the moon – and even further! When I first saw you, my heart fired off falling stars and my jet engine lubricated with oil... you are the biggest heat in the universe and my humming machine will strike you a blow, leaving subconsciously the Galaxy behind. I know how to mellow sharp edges and to sidestep dangers in order to achieve impact at high speed. The rocket man is not burning out his fuse up here alone. So fasten your seat belt! My two-seat rocket is ready for takeoff... let`s break the sound barrier and I’ll show you my Milky Way…[Melani Murkovic]
