Your Spectrum (Apr, 1985)
With the possible exception of Full Throttle, this has got to be the best racing game yet ... but it's far too expensive!
Crash! (Jan, 1985)
Overall, quite a good race track game, but spoiled by the exceptionally high price tag - still, at least isn't the £15 we originally feared it would be.
ZX Computing (Oct, 1985)
It Is hard to say why, but I wasn't too excited by this program. All the arcade features are there, but going round and round the track didn't seem too challenging - OK, I had my share of crashes, but I couldn't maintain a lasting interest. If you are a fan of the arcade version then this will be a must for you, I suspect most Spectrum gamers will find there is not enough variation in the gameplay to keep them engrossed for long.

Oh no! Not another racing car game! Despite Pole Position being a direct descendant of the famous arcade game it is still hard not to be cynical. The game begins with a qualifying lap to determine which one of the eight grid positions you take for the race. Score, time left, speed, gears and laps completed, are displayed throughout the trial and race.
