- TRIVIA -

Tail to Nose was released in December 1989.

This game is known in Japan as "Super Formula - Chijou Saisoku no Battle" (translates from Japanese as 'Battle of the Fastest Above the Ground').

Based on the 1988 F1 Season, the game is not licensed, but the name changes are only slight : Lotos (Lotus), Mclarun (McLaren), Ferreri (Ferrari), Merci (March (Technically Leyton House)), Willruns (Williams) and Benetten (Benetton). During the demo you get to see pictures of the car, drivers and their names. The drivers look exactly like who they should be.

Sound composer : Naoki Itamura (Gekko Itamura)
