Powered by the Retro World Series
Control a Formula One racecar and complete a time trial lap with the fastest time over the course – get it? – of the weekend. Avoid going off the road and try not to crash into the billboards in this tournament featuring this classic Atari hit!
Pole Position was the first racing video game to feature a track based on a real racing circuit. It was also the first game to feature a qualifying lap, requiring the player to complete a time trial before they can compete in Grand Prix races. The game’s graphics featured full-color landscapes with scaling sprites, including racecars and signs, with a third-person, rear perspective view of the track. Thanks, Wikipedia!
