Pole Position is a racing game for one player which uses a steering wheel, a shifter to switch between low and high gears, and gas and brake pedals. Once you've completed the qualifying lap, you're placed in the group of eight cars depending on how quickly you finished; you'll have to finish in less than 58.5 seconds (the game's clock ticks off slightly faster than normal) to earn the coveted pole position. Anything more than 73 seconds won't be good enough to join race at all. As you race you earn 50 points for every car you pass. Even though you may be at the front of the pack after the initial straightaway, you'll still encounter CPU-controlled cars. If you can finish the first lap in less than 75 seconds, you'll get another 45 to keep racing. If you can complete yet another lap, you'll be given more time to keep going. Depending on how the Arcade operator set the machine, the maximum number of laps you can complete is usually three or four. ~ Brad Cook, All Game Guide
