When originally released, Gremlin ran a promotion whereby anyone who completed all 3 difficulty levels by winning their respective championships was given a code by the game, and could send this to Gremlin's office to receive a spoof 'Lotus License'.
The opposition drivers' names are all puns on Formula One figures past and present. It's slightly unfortunate that the first two figures whose names were punned to die were James Hunt and Ayrton Senna - known in the game as 'James Haunt' and 'Ayrton Sendup' respectively.
The game's introductory sequence includes charts and graphs demonstrating the performance of the real life Lotus Esprit - some of these are said to be 'based on Goverment fuel economy figures'
