In Pole Position, you take control of a Formula-1 race car and try to accumulate the highest score by completing a race as quickly as possible. You begin by racing a qualifying lap in order to race in the Grand Prix. To qualify, you will need to complete the lap in under 73 seconds. The Grand Prix consists of four laps around the track. For every car you pass, bonus points are awarded. The game ends when you complete the four laps or your time expires. There is only one track to race on.
