Championship Sprint

Back in the 80’s I loved arcade machines – in fact I still do. I used to own a couple of pinball machines but the latest machine I bought was Championship Sprint.

Atari Chapionship Sprint

It is a 2 player standup car racing game by Atari. Simple in design but very addictive – especially when you don’t have to pay for each game!

Bascially, race around the track and win. During the race you will see wrenches. Run over them, and after you have three you can buy performance or handling upgrades for your car. As I said very addictive.

The specs, by todays standards, are very lame ….

As it does take up a lot of room, I recently decided to sell it on Ebay. I wasn’t sure how much to sell it for but I did want to get rid of it ASAP. So I threw it on to ‘buy it now’ for $200. It actually sold in 4 minutes! Couldn’t ask for anything better than that.
