Atari puts you in the driver's seat! Pass cass like they're standing still, but watch those curves! One mistake and you could go up in flames!
Here's your chance to prove you've got the skill to be a professional race car driver, as you pit yourself against the clock and the world's top Formula 1 race cars.
You have 90 driving seconds in the qualifying run but must achieve a lap time of 73" (seconds) or better to qualify for a race. After you qualify, the real race begins!
If you hit another car, your car will explode costing you precious time. No matter how many times you crash, you will receive another car until your time runs out.
Remember, you earn 50 points for every car you pass.
