After launching the game (either booting from floppy or by other means), you have a choice of a single-player race or multiplayer game.
The single player option places you in a league where you need to eventually win in Division I. You also have the option to practice on individual tracks among the four divisions.
- Damage meter. A crack will form from the left indicating the amount of damage received. Holes from the right indicate permanent damage that increases the rate at which the crack forms.
- Lap count and Nitro.
- Distance from rival. Positive indicates opponent is leading, and negative indicates he is lagging behind. The adjecent flag is lit if you are leading.
- Timers; current lap time shown on top, and best lap time on the bottom. The stopwatch icon is lit if you have the best lap.
