Trivia:
1) VR introduced the "V.R. View System" by allowing the player to choose one of four views to play the game. This feature was then used in most other Sega arcade racing games (and is mentioned as a feature in the attract mode of games such as Daytona USA).
2) Michael Jackson used to own this game (Wide Vision model, serial number: 00461579). It was sold at the official Michael Jackson Auction on Apr. 24th, 2009.
3) SVP chip- This game caused a quite interesting problem for owners of phones. The SVP chip had a frequency that was so high it was picked up by the phones and they rang like crazy. It was enough to sure cause headaches!
4) Multiplayer game available with linked arcade machines.
