Welcome to our 42nd Squad Challenge, and our first Pole Position II Grand Prix Event! Pole Position is one of the most iconic arcade games released by Atari and was genre-defining for its time, setting a new standard of what racing gameplay could be like. Pole Position II of course was the pack-in title for the Atari 7800, and is often remembered as the first game 7800 owners played on their new game system. I have so many wonderful memories of playing Pole Position at Chuck E. Cheese's with my family, shifting gears and whipping around corners with a cheese stick in my hand and a cup of root beer on the floor under my feet. Pole Position II was also one of my favorite games to play at home and a wonderful memory on the Atari 7800.
About the Pole Position II Grand Prix: This is our first annual Pole Position II Grand Prix! We're treating this like a real race, in that you're not posting a score, but rather you're posting your best lap time for each completed track. This may cause you to change up your strategy a bit and think differently about how you approach the game.
Posting Your Lap Times: For this Squad Challenge we are posting our best lap times for each track: TEST, FUJI, SEASIDE, & SUZUKA. A scoreboard will be kept and a winner will be announced for each individual track! In order to have an eligible lap time that can be posted, you must make it to the finish line and complete the track without timing out. If you run out of time and don't make it to the end, you haven't completed the track and your time won't count. Your lap time is displayed on the top right of your TV screen. The player with the fastest time to the finish line is the 2018 Pole Position II Grand Prix Champion for that track! Prepare to qualify!
