Copy protection

The game has some pretty annoying copy protection. A password book consisting of four pages was included with the game. In the book, pictures of race tracks were displayed with some random numbers next to them. When launching the game, a number would appear on the screen. You then had to look the number up in the password book and select the corresponding track from the screen.

There were only 15 tracks, but guessing was still not very rewarding. Big deal you say, just look up the track in the password book. Well, that was a bit of a problem. All information was printed in black ink on a dark red paper. This made it impossible to photocopy, but worse, it gave you a headache for the rest of the day because it was some damn illegible. You actually had to put your nose on the paper and painfully focus your eyes at such a close distance to make out the text.
