Chequered Flag

Chequered Flag

Chequered flag is a fast moving motor racing simulation in which you have to negotiate some of the worlds famous racing circuits.

From behind the wheel of your thoroughbred formula 1 racing car, you have a dinamic view of the outside world flashing past and of continuously changing instuments on your dashboard display. Watch the various landmarsk appear over the horizon and snake towards you - trees, milestones, rocks and warning arrows, a lake etc.. There are even hills to climb and descend. Keep and eye on your instruments to achieve maximum performance and avoid skidding or overheating.

Your car has been carefully programmed to model accurately the dinamics of a real racing car and you even have a choice of cars. Peak power will be delivered at the appropriate revs, and drag and road traction are all evaluated. In order to achieve maximum performance you will need to change up and down the gears to keep the revs at the optimum level, and if you take the corners too fast you will start to slip sideways. But don't worry, to make things easier you can opt for a car with an automatic gearbox - at the cost of a little power of course. Your dashboard display features full analogue speedometer, rev counter, fuel and temperature gauges along with a gear selection indicator - plus lap timer and lap counter. The steering wheel is also visible and turns in response to your commands.

Driving a racing car is a very skilled business, and apart from keeping on the road and trying to establish new lap or race records, you will have to avoid various hazards and look after your car.
