Welcome to round seven of this 5200 HSC season!  Pole Position won the poll by two votes. We will be playing on the Atari Grand Prix level - 4 laps. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.
 
The current HSC record for Pole Position (AGP - 4 laps) was set by Kida0723 - 58,350 points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point!
 
I will also be awarding 3, 2, and 1 bonus points to the top 3 qualifying laps on the Atari Grand Prix.

A link to the ROM and manual can be found here:

For this game, I dont see how that would be any different than using a digital controller via adapter, which is allowed. So, sure, go ahead.

As long as it's NTSC, there's no difference. :) Timer runs different in PAL and gives a few extra seconds per lap.

Thank you for the input, zylon!  So for this title, NTSC Atari computers are fine, but not their PAL versions.

I've never played this for HSC before. I didn't take a picture of the qualifer because you can't pause this game during the time you would need to take a picture of that. Some games are weird like that, where they don't allow pause during transitions.

 

Atari Grand Prix is HARD. I didn't even crash and ran out of time, is it even possible to finish a 4 lap race?

30950 - 65"54

 

Strangely, using my multicart, I can't move with the ROM, control doesn't work, but I have this cart so I'm good.  Haven't had that happen with any other ROMs.

Tough track, but I'm hoping to improve. Maybe if I get myself some racing gloves and a crash helmet...

Ok, I didn't realize that Analog control is how you play this game. You can do digital, but it squeals the tires all the time and slows you down. Also figured out when to pause for the qualifier picture.

55300 - 59"00.  Crashed on the last lap not far from finish, irritating...
