Pit & Run (complete title: Pit & Run - F-1 Race), is a racing arcade game, that was released by Taito Corporation in 1984; it utilizes two Zilog Z80s (running up at 4 and 2.5 MHz), with a Motorola M68705 (running up at 2 MHz), and two General Instrument AY-3-8910s running at 1.536 MHz for sound. The player must use a 4-way joystick, to take control of a red car in a Formula 1 race (which is competing against nine other CPU-controlled cars, some yellow and some blue) - and as it travels the tracks, its fuel meter will decrease so you shall occasionally have to pull in to the "GVS" stations to refuel. As in Taito's own Speed Race series, there are "slip zones" on the tracks, which require careful steering in; each track also has three trials (the first has five laps, the second eight laps and the third ten). On the second and third trials of each track, you shall receive a "Turbo" tune-up when you pull in to a "GVS" station, for a refuel - and this may speed up your car, but it will cause its fuel meter to decrease twice as fast. Once you have mastered all four of the tracks regardless of how many trials it has taken you, the driver of the car you had been controlling will be proclaimed "CHAMPION" and the game will end.
