Virtua Racing Virtua Racing or V.R. for short, is a Formula 1 racing arcade game, developed by Sega-AM2 and released in October 1992. It is one of the first driving games to use fully polygonal characters and environments (the first was Hard Drivin'), on the new 3DCG board "Model 1". Virtua Racing was initially developed as a test program for exercising the new Model 1 hardware as it was developed, and was eventually developed into a commercial game. Virtua Racing also introduced the "V.R. View System" by allowing the player to choose one of four views to play the game. This feature was then used in most other SEGA arcade racing games (and is mentioned as a feature in the attract mode of games such as Daytona USA). It was later ported to home consoles, starting with the Mega Drive/Genesis in 1994. [source:wikipedia]
