Spirit of Speed 1937

aka: The Spirit of Speed

Description official descriptions

A slight change from the normal excessive number of F1 games out there, Spirit of Speed 1937 was an attempt to put you into the driving seat of some of the oldest, and well known, racing cars of the early-century. Take control of one of the 1930s cars and race it out around tracks, many of which are no longer available for professional competitive racing. The game is a single player race around historic tracks in a single race or a full circuit.

While the LJN Entertainment brand was mainly used by Acclaim Entertainment to get around Nintendo's limitation on the total number of titles a single publisher could release on the NES, it was brought back specifically for the release of this game. Why they did that, however, is still unknown.
