    Not having access to Super Sprint arcade machine with pedals and steering wheels, I'm emulating this on MAME and using an Xbox 360 controller.

    This game is H.A.R.D. I have trouble winning the second level.

    I got a sudden urge to play Super Sprint. I used a few continues and won some races, but I guess you give up the chance to continue once you enter your hiscore initials.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the A.I. has dynamic difficulty.

    completed the game using 3 continues (MAME). All tracks. It seems easier if you ensure that every race is a photo finish, assumedly causing the AI to not crank up the difficulty.
