Arcade - Curves and Billboards

Be careful when taking curves. Too much speed will send your car skidding off the track and possibly into a billboard! Actually, going off-road may help avoid a crash now and then, but remember, off-road driving slows you down, and there are billboards along the straightaways too.

The original Japanese Pole Position had actual brand names on the billboards, like Marlboro and Pepsi. The American release replaced those with billboards featuring Atari and Namco logos and games.
