Yes! I was wondering if skiing was similar. Because I can carve a mean line in Skiing!

If you havent played it,Skiing is a must have Intellivision game.

It's very exciting when you can shave a little time off your high score on it.👍

That's what I mean! Skiing is a blast and if Auto Racing is at all similar... I'm just saying I might be a contender here. 😊

You're getting damned good at track 3 there!  I just can't be consistent enough. If I ran clean every lap, I'd be under 7 minutes, but as is, I can't get under 8. Lol

Thanks 👍

 I messed up the 4th lap on that run, otherwise I'd have been under 7 minutes, but I'm still happy with that.

You may be the guy to consider the faster cars and see what you can do on course 3.

Great score!👍

Thanks. I've tried the faster cars a couple of times but couldn't quite get the braking right. With the red car, you can do the courses without needing to brake at all.

 

I'll give them a go though as I think I'll struggle to improve much more with the red car. A better driver might be able to, but I'm almost at my limit with them.

Not sure the blue car is a good fit to course 3 regardless of skill due to the lack of acceleration.  I've had a few times I felt I nailed a lap, but am still slower than red.

Second attempt, shaved off a whole minute with the white car. This game is great. I'm impressed by the graphics for such an early game.

 

Now I'm down to within 60 seconds of a respectable time 😂

One really interesting thing is how the courses in 'the world' are all laid out next to each other, so you can find places to sneak between courses.  Not going to help your times and if you crash, you're reset back to your last checkpoint on your teack, but it's kinda fun to spend some time in 'explore' mode as well.  🙂

Alright. Drinking beer with this game is not helpful 

I’ve sometimes thought my car in this game looks like it’s being driven by an impaired driver as it is - weaving all over the track!
