This popped up on the AtariAge FB group - appears this game from the screenshot was gonna adapt Pole Position code into this game somehow.

The Knight Rider TV series began in late September 1982. And wouldn't have been called a "hit" tv series until at least a few months later, if not longer, after audience feedback & ratings returns.

Pole Position was a 1982 arcade game, ported to the Atari 2600 in 1983.

So this is most likely and merely a fake mock up fantasy thrown together by an over zealous fan.

I'm certain that's a mockup from somewhere in the infamous "Knight Rider 2600" thread.  The screenshot is a modified Fatal Run screenshotsee the third screenshot from the top in this listwith the car colored black to more closely resemble the Knight 2000 (that's the car from the show, which everyone mistakenly called K.I.T.T. even though K.I.T.T. was actually the AI inside the car).
