TRIVIA

Suzuka 8 Hours was released in May 1992.

Suzuka 8 Hours is one of the world's major endurance motorcycle championship. The event is eight hours long and is held every year in Suzuka (Japan), on a 5.8 Km circuit owned by Honda. Because of the length of such race, several pilots ride the same bike and the winning team must complete the largest amount of laps. Suzuka 8 Hours was first inaugurated in 1978 and joined the world championship series in 1980.

This is the first video game officially sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company. Note : Coca-Cola was invented in May 1886 by a pharmacist, Dr. John S. Pemberton in Atlanta, Georgia. A bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, suggested the name 'Coca-Cola' to Dr. Pemberton. Robinson suggested this name because both the words Coca and Cola named 2 of the ingredients. Also the 2 'C's' would look good in advertising. The name 'Coca-Cola' first became a registered trademark in 1893.
