Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

This electronic game console uses two film strips which advance at different speeds to simulate driving on a racetrack. This allows you to race your car along the 'real' moving plastic track. This early electronic game features a lap counter, 4 speed settings and steering wheel.

The film strips have holes punched which are used to detect the player's car 'crashing'. This triggers sound and lights and stops the movement of the film strips.

Manufacturer: Tomy
Date: 1978

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH34161. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
