Super Hang On offered four tracks to race on, each were based on four different continents. The computer game had you racing against opponents at a simulated top speed of 280kmh () but the GP bikes in the bikes would get to 324kmh () if you hit the ‘turbo’ button.

It was epic for the time. And we spent lots of cash on Super Hang On. You probably did, too.

The game allows fans to line up against up to eight of their friends, locally or online, or race the best of the grid as they lean into the corners of some of the world’s most beautiful racetracks – enjoying every second of the race in HD. A fan in the arcade cabinet hits you with blasts of air as you race around the tracks.

Looks cool to us, we just need to make sure we’ve a stack of pound coins and can swing a few weekend’s off to go and waster away setting lap records at Suzuka.
