Super Speed Race is a racing arcade game that was released by Taito in 1977; it utilizes a Zilog Z80 microprocessor (running at 2.496 MHz), and is the third title in the Speed Race series. It was created by Taito Corporation.[1] The player must again use a steering wheel and gear shifter to take up control of a car, with a single pedal to make it accelerate - and if the car crashes into a CPU-controlled car or goes off the track it will be sent back to the start. You will now also have to watch out for patches of ice and oil slicks on the track; playing time and extended play are also now adjustable, by the arcade's operator. Even though this game is emulated in MAME, the score and time were shown on LED displays to the left of the monitor, which creates the illusion it did not have a score or time system - and without those, it is a lot less playable.
