Description official description
Auto Racing is a one or two player racing game that puts the player behind the wheel of one of five cars, each with different specialties. The player may race on five different fairly large courses. In the one player game, the player is racing the clock to finish five laps as quickly as possible. In the two player game, the player can race a friend and gain points for either the opponent crashing or if one is leading far enough to reach the edge of the screen.

The game is designed on a globe, so if steering off the current track, players can end up on another track. Also, there's a hidden drag strip somewhere on that globe
References to the game
Auto Racing footage was used as a "radar screen" on Knight Rider, the '80s TV series with David Hasselhoff.
There were two versions of Auto Racing. The first version had realistic steering, turn the disk right and the car would turn right like a real car. People complained that steering was difficult, so it was changed to intuitive steering, by pressing left the car would move to the left of the screen; regardless if it was traveling north or south. There's no way to tell by looking at the box or cartridge which version it is; only by playing the game or reading the manual.
