Introduction
Mastertronic's single best-selling title ever: according to Retro Gamer, the C16 version of Formula 1 Simulator had sales of 173,498. A popular classic for the C16 with at that time unbelievable graphics. The game was very likely inspired by the arcade classic Night Driver released initially for the Atari and later for the C64.
