Speed Racer is my personal favorite clone of the arcade hit Pole Position. Although not as sophisticated in play as Pitstop II, it also didn't need a disk drive, and just looked better with the full screen graphics. There are 4 different tracks, each which has it's own scenery (some are in the country, some in the city), and it keeps track of the top 10 scores for EACH track separately. Even the intro is cool; it shows a Coco 1 and a TV set; it turns the TV on, tunes to the right channel, and then puts on the opening credits using some flashing and scrolling animation.
