Speed into the Sprint Master Hall of Fame! Choose your track, from practice-caliber squares to the curvaceous championship courses. Rev up at the starting line, and take off!

Keep a good grip on the controls. You'll need a delicate touch and a cool head to avoid sliding into the wall on those arcing curves.

Watch your time. Take advantage of the bonus speed and traction boxes at the necessary moments. Grab the lead on the first lap, or let your challenger outpace you and then make him eat dust in the final laps.

Outrace an opponent, or go at it again to beat your own time. Sprint to the finish and win!


Model CX26155


On a 1 player game with the bounce option on, select either a dirt or ice track. Get the speed-up icon (upper-right, same color as your car) and go to the upper-left tar slick. If your car touches it after bouncing off the top barrier, and the seconds are between 00:0 and 04:9, your car will turn into the initials BP (for Bob Polaro).

Pick up momentum in the straightaways. Keep to the inside track on curves.

On blacktop, make for the red boxes to gain as much speed as you can.

On ice, head for the blue boxes for extra traction.

Stay on the track. You can take shortcuts across the grass, but you may bump into invisible barriers and lose valuable time.

Watch the track. Some tracks have barriers that appear and disappear and could cost you time. You can also use these gates for shortcuts, but you need to make sure you get through before the gate closes.
