Game Play

Race your car around the tracks and earn extra time by reaching checkpoints. There are two modes: Practice and Championship. In Practice mode, you race against one car (the computer) by selecting one of three tracks and racing a number of laps. In Championship mode you race an equal number of laps per course and each successive track becomes more difficult.

You compete against 14 other cars that are either computer or player controlled. There is also a View Change button that lets the player choose between two different driving perspectives: behind the car and inside the car. If you place first on the last track, you get to race an extra course. The tracks are as follows: Desert (easy), Forest (medium), Mountain (expert), and Lakeside (extra).

New informational view: Hold down START and VIEW when selecting a car to get an alternate view. There is no rear view mirror, a seconds clock appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and a split time will be displayed based on the best time the machine has in memory. The digits are red if you are currently faster the best time.

No waiting to get into the game: To skip waiting for the ten second timer, thus avoiding another player joining the game, simply insert your coins and hold down both the Start and View buttons. Instantly the select screen will appear. No waiting!

Different car characteristics: To get different car capabilities (e.g. slides more easily), while selecting your car, shift 1st/2nd/3rd/4th and you will hear a WHOOOSH! sound, which means this code is enabled. The car will now handle differently, as you will soon see.

Lakeside course in practice mode: Completing the Championship course is not the only way to reach Lakeside. When choosing a course, select Mountain and enter the gearshifts 1>2>3>N>3 and then wait until the timer runs out. You will hear a WHOOOSH! sound which means the code was performed correctly.
