Developed by Namco and manufactured by Atari in North America, Pole Position brought arcade driving realism to new heights when it appeared in arcades in 1982. Simulating a Formula 1 race on Japan's Fuji Speedway, the game featured numerous innovations, including lifelike sprite-scaling graphics and a realistic, shifting perspective, in addition to being the first game to focus its race on a well-known real-life track. Appearing in both upright and seated formats, Pole Position's flashy visuals and iconic (if somewhat muffled) "Prepare to Qualify" speech synthesis were an unmistakable part of the sights and sounds of early 80s arcades, and remain popular to emulate today.
