Pitstop II

1984, Commodore 64

Much like Pole Position, Pitstop II is an early Formula One sim, featuring six real-life tracks and the need to keep an eye on fuel and tyres – which are replenished by taking, well, a pitstop. It was also the first 3D racing game to offer a split-screen multiplayer mode, letting you leave your mates in the dust.
