Speed Race CL-5 © 1980 Taito.

The sixth entry in the 'Speed Race' series. This one adds some new elements in gameplay. The player has to watch out for water slicks on the track - and the car now has headlights, which will turn on when it is about to enter a tunnel. The track will also split into two paths, when the player's car is passing over a bridge; the player will have to choose which path to take quickly, otherwise he/she shall crash and be sent back to the start. This title also introduces 'emergency' cars, which have flashing lights on their roofs - however, they must be avoided like any other CPU-controlled car.
