Make sure to start up the disk in low res is using the imagerunner from PP on a hard drive (or SD card like hard drive device).
It looks and plays incredible. Needs a 10 rating.

Instructions - Pole Position

You should be able to see the following new things in this version:

Sampled sound effects ripped from the arcade game;
Sound effect for overtaking/being overtaken by opponent cars;
Completed graphics for the start/finish line;
Blimp/airship flying across screen at the beginning and end of qualifying;
Caption on start/finish line moving between START/NAMCO/GOAL as per the arcade machine;
Horizon flickering effect fixed for the most part;
General bugfixes and some other stuff I've probably forgotten.

I know there are still some annoying bugs but I'm now confident 
that this is getting close to being ready for a final release. 
Please let me know if you think otherwise!
