    Default Need help IDing an older arcade racing game

    OK, all I have is a description of what I can remember, so bear with me. Searches of the KLOV and the web in general have turned up nil. This game was fairly basic in terms of gameplay-I place it somewhere around 1983-84.

    The machine was of the sit-down variety, enclosing the player inside with a window behind them so specators could watch. There was a three-spoke steering wheel and a gear shift, with 2 gears, lo and hi. Either the steering wheel or the gear shift was covered in leather, I don't remember which.

    The game itself was a top-down racer, racing through tunnels and just regualr old "road". When the cars would go through the tunnels, their headlights would turn on in the shape of a small yellow(I think) cone. I'm sure there was more to the gameplay, but that's what I can remember.

    If the player's car would hit another car, there was a loud "klash" sound, and the car would flip up into the air. It would then land, and the player could continue on racing.

    Last I recall playing it was at a local Malibu Gran Prix, which has long since went bye-bye.

    Please help me out here if you can. I've been trying to figure this out for quite some time now. Pics, links, anything would be great.

    That's gotta be it, Monaco GP. I didn't know there was a sit in cab though! My arcade had the little stand up. Funky game, especially the night driving.

    I think it's time to dump another ROM into the old XBOX....
