The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    POWER RALLY RACING



    You're head-to-head with a Lamborghini and the speedometer of your red-hot speed-bred racer tops 225 kilometers an hour. You feel an adrenalin rush from the sudden increase in speed as your turbo charger flips your rig into rapid acceleration. Watch out! The weather's changing fast, and so are the road conditions. It's getting slick, and you've got to power down or you won't make the hairpin turn!

    GAME PLAY: Choose your power machine--a Ferrari type 328 Twin Turbo or the Indy 500 style Formula One. There are eight courses ahead packed with plenty of road hazards and hot competitors with lots of tricks. Your goal is to make it across the checkered flag within time. First you're up against a VW bug. Work your way through power-packed competition--Corvette, Citroen, Mercedes, Lamborghini, Lotus, and more. Use the other Mercedes, Lamborghini, Lotus, and more. Use the other drivers to your advantage. Learn to slipstream for a block. Flip and land on all four tires. Check your timing, watch your speed, and roll!
