    Congratulations Everybody!
     
    Congratulations everybody on your high scores! How was Pole Position II on the Fuji track? Pole Position II gets some hate on the Atari 7800 but I think it's a fun (and sometimes tricky!) adaptation of an incredible arcade game. I'd like to offer Gianna a very special welcome to the forums for participating in this Squad Challenge. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging track. You can bet we'll be back here this time next year to take on another PPII track. I hope everybody enjoyed our Summer Events this year, including the Pole Position II Grand Prix, Howard Scott Warshaw Day, and Pizza Party Weekend! We'll have some fun stuff coming up for the Fall and Winter too. Congrats to everyone who played! I'll post my new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! 
    Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Sega Genesis!

    MESSAGE: Welcome to our 67th Squad Challenge, the 2019 Pole Position II Grand Prix! This will be our second Pole Position II Grand Prix Event! This year the Grand Prix will be a little different: This year's challenge will only be for half a month and we will only be racing the FUJI Track in an attempt to achieve your best high score! Last year the Grand Prix lasted for the entire month and we raced all four tracks for the best lap time. This year we are keeping things simple: We are racing for the best possible score on the FUJI Track. 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. ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing!
     
    NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for Sega Genesis. Be there!

    Nice!  I've got a front loader NES with similar interference patterns...  one day I'll do something with it.  Until then, I'm okay with the top loader with jailbars.  lol...

    You motivated me to download an Atari 7800 emulator onto my laptop so I could join the fun! Truth be told, on the second-to-last lap, I had just run out of time when I coasted over the start/finish line, qualifying me for the final lap.  Luck of the draw!
    Oh yeah, my score is 65,000

    I'm playing on the MESS emulator.  This was my 5th try and I only crashed once on this run.  Never hit the brakes and only let off the gas to get past that sharp left turn.

    Speaking of livestreams...  I do a "Thurbo Thursday" on Twitch every Thursday.  Maybe I'll play this one tonight.  I usually play three games for about an hour a piece.  =)

    Hey guys, glad to see so much participation in a TurboGrafx challenge! This is a really great game and I was hoping you guys would like it.
    I spent hours playing and this is the best I could do. I've been meaning to do a livestream but it didn't work out. I may go back and play this game live on Instagram and YouTube later in the week.
