Game Al Unser, Jr. ArcadeTM Racing by MindScape
This is where the talking stops and the action begins. The course that you drive depends on the mode you chose (Championship, Timed, or Practice). Regardless of the mode, you hit the ground running. Your car is under computer control while the countdown begins. Once the count passes 1 -- you are on your own.
Controlling your car
You can set your own controls depend with the Options menu: either keyboard or joystick (which has to be calibrated first).
Steer your car left or right to negotiate bends and avoid the other cars on the course.
Brake when you come up to a particularly tight turn; accelerate along those straights and past your opponents.
If you are using manual gears, remember to down shift when you slow or brake, and shift up when you accelerate again.

1. World Lap Record for current course
2. Your Best Lap time for current course
3. Time Remaining before next checkpoint (in Timed Mode) or Time Elapsed for current lap
