POLE POSITION consists of two races: the Qualifying Lap and the Grand Prix. In both races you're racing against time and other cars. The longer you race and the more cars you pass, the more points you score. You earn 10,000 points for completing a lap and 50 bonus points for each car you pass. A lap is one complete circuit of the race course.

I saw the ad for this on a website and considered reviewing it. Turns out it's a pretty cool game for the early eighties before the NES. All you do in it, is see how far you can get in 90 seconds.
Drive as far as you can for 90 seconds. The farther you go, the more points you get.
