Star Rider
Magazine review- Electronic Games (1984)

Trivia:
1) A laser disc motorcycle race game that takes place on different planets in outer space.
2) The tracks themselves and the background graphics are video played from a laserdisc. The foreground graphics and racers are superimposed on the video. This technique enabled better visuals than other games of the period.
3) First few lines of NTSC video signal contained data about the roadway, so that animated riders could appear to follow the track.
