Warning: There's a very similarly titled Famicom Disk System game called Grand Prix: F1 Race that I thought we were playing at first. Thank god it's not that. What we're playing is just called F1 Race for anyone looking for the ROM.

You might want to pause the game as soon as time runs out. Otherwise you have like a second to get a picture at the game over screen.

It should also be okay to get a picture at the title screen if you get over 10k since it has separate top scores for each skill level.

Even beating the first race is a decent challenge.

Skill Level 3 is no joke. I played some yesterday and figured it would be our combined scores for each skill level. But that may have required a lot more time than people have, so I get the choice. 

For anyone who hasnt played this at all, I would recommend playing some on skill levels 1 and 2 first. Really helps to get a feel for mechanics before diving into the skill 3 fire

It wasnt a good idea to have racing games in the contest.  It was a fucking tremendous idea. This takes some practice, but its fun when you get it down. Also, I will officially accept your apology when we play rc pro am 2. Best game on this years schedule

It truly makes me sad the biggest 64 enthusiast I know would say such a thing. So many of the racers were phenomenal. But, even ignoring the long list, wave race and 1080 were 2 of the best and most iconic releases for that system. Kills me Jeeves!!

Your screenshot shows a different copyright year and company (and the hi score isn't green for skill 3 - I don't know if that makes a difference).  You might want to see if you can find a different ROM just to be 100% sure you're playing the same game as everyone else.

And as for the game... holy crap skill 3 ain't messin' around!  I just played for about fifteen minutes and I can't even crack the default hi-score.  Me thinks me needs some practice...

I've also noticed differing colors for same levels depending who's play-through I'm watching.  I certainly haven't gone over the matter with a fine toothed comb or anything, but from what I've seen there haven't seemed to be any differences in level structure or gameplay.  Not knowing what game to play is a bit of a monkey in the cogs.

every once in awhile when i would restart track 1, it would be red background instead of blue.........not sure what is up, but ya, maybe its just the rom itself, who really knows, not like i am gonna try super hard on this damned racing game anyways 😛

The background changes colors for me too. Sometimes its the standard colors, but sometimes its pink or blue. I watched video of a complete playthrough of all 3 skill levels on youtube. I am getting the exact same scores completing each level as the player in the video and almost exact same scores completing skill levels 1 and 2 playing the extra lap(s) on race 5. Havent been able to beat skill level 3.

This was the only rom I could find if memory serves. If someone has a better one, pms welcome

We probably need a ruling on this. Sorry to keep bugging you, @BeaIankbut I dont want to play all week and find out my score is no good. @Dr. Morbishas an easy enough road to a regular season victory without me sidelined.

      Hello and welcome, players!
      Be prepared, for this week you will have to rely on your fists, feet, knifes and machine guns to make through P.O.W.!
      This week will decide who will claim the crown to the Beat 'em up genre, proving they are the best bare hand fighter at VGS!
      @mbd39 currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend with 22 points, Krunch is creeping really close to both of them with 21 points.
      The three of them are the only ones with a chance to claim the title!
      So, without further ado, here's the rules
      Play until Game Over No point racking If you score less than 20,000 points, be ready to take your picture at the Game Over screen (it doesn’t stay up long) If you score more than 20,000 points, start a new game to get your score Each extra life remaining after beating the game adds 5000 points to your score. Highest score wins GENRE: Beat ‘Em Up

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
