DescriptionThe World Superbike Championship is an annual championship that races modified versions of production-model motorcycles. In 1997 the Championship was won by John Kocinski on a Honda RC45. That season is recreated here, with all 12 circuits around the world including Monza, Laguna Seca and Brands Hatch. Bikes from Ducati, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki also feature, ridden by aces such as Kocinski, Carl Fogarty, Scott Russell, Aaron Slight and Pierfrancesco Chili. The manual includes background information on the series and its competitors. A VCR-style Action Replay mode is included
There are two game modes. Simulation features bike setup options, realistic slidy handling, and the risk of engine failures. Action mode automates setup, simplifies the handling, and offers the option of the rider automatically sitting up on entry to a corner, to improve handling.
