About The Game

California Speed is a driving game that takes place in various courses throughout the state of California, USA and includes a stage where you race on a rollercoaster!

Additional Technical Information

Players : 2

Control : steering wheel with force feedback, four position shift lever, two pedals

Trivia

There are 2 types of California Speed, one of which does not utilise the 4 position shift lever. This was the factory kit that converted "Hyperdrive" to California Speed.

On the Laguna Seca raceway, adverts for some other Atari games can be seen in the background : "Mace - The Dark Age", "Maximum Force", "Primal Rage" and "Area 51".
