Stock Car is a car racing game for one or two players with a choice of 6 different circuits to race around, variable skid (0-99%), selectable number of laps (1-40) and oil patches. The computer controls the two yellow cars (three in the one player game). Each car has 4 gears and the race starts with the cars in neutral. Your gear and the number of completed laps are displayed at the top of the screen as well as your speed in the form of a horizontal bar. In each gear you have a different acceleration and top speed. Remember to go down to first or second gear if you crash.

If you have problems:
When the program is loading into the computer (after you have entered *RUN, *LOAD, or CHAIN"") the message 'Searching' should appear on the screen followed by 'Loading' and the program name when the program is found. If the program name appears without the 'Loading' message or messages like 'Data?', 'Block' or 'Header?' appear, rewind the tape a short way and alter the volume level on the cassette recorder. If, after repeating this several times, the 'Loading' message still does not appear, try the second copy of the program on the cassette.
If, after trying the above, you are still unsuccessful or the program does not load very reliably, then return the cassette to us stating when and where you brought it, details about your computer (memory size, Operating System, any Interfaces fitted, etc) and which cassette recorder you have been using. These latter questions are important due to the frequent updating of the computer's specification.
