The subtitle of this game translates from Japanese as 'Battle of the Fastest Above the Ground'.

This game is known outside Japan as "Tail to Nose - Great Championship".

Based on the 1988 F1 Season, the game is not licensed, but the name changes are only slight : Lotos (Lotus), Mclarun (McLaren), Ferreri (Ferrari), Merci (March (Technically Leyton House)), Willruns (Williams) and Benetten (Benetton). During the demo you get to see pictures of the car, drivers and their names. The drivers look exactly like who they should be.
