I played this earlier tonight and got a time of 32.60 seconds. When I hopped onto High Score to submit it, I realised just how good that time actually is, so decided to have another crack at it. I just managed 32.54 seconds, and decided to upload the whole video as it shows the settings at the start and a number of sub-32.70 runs.

This is one of those Atari games that does have a difference between PAL and NTSC.

NTSC the best that can be done is 32:72, but for some reason PAL can achieve a faster time.

What's even more interesting is when you do the downhill run on PAL the times are much slower 

I watched your run and it was technically very good, getting very close to each flag.

Voting yes! As everyone can play this rom

Aha! I have to admit that I was wondering how I could possibly get world record on one of my first attempts at the game. Now it all makes sense! blush

Thanks for voting yes, although I would have been happy if we agreed to have a separate PAL entry for the game. Seems a little unfair. Then again, you went and beat it straight away anyway. yes

@TheTrickster:

I figured anyone who wanted to play on EMU can easily download the PAL ROM.

I think 32.48 is a slim possibility if your looking for a challenge

Nah, I'm done with this game. As much as I hate to concede defeat to a Queenslander, you well and truly deserve to sit on this throne. cheeky
