Championship Sprint was released in September 1986 in the memory of George Opperman (1935-1985). Mr. Opperman was the first artist hired by Atari and the creator of the Atari logo.
How to Play
Championship Sprint is an updated version of the old Atari Sprint series with the ability to upgrade your vehicle as the game progresses. Upgrades are won by collecting wrenches that appear once per track. After you have managed to collect four wrenches, you will be presented with an upgrade screen which gives you a chance to choose better traction, top speed, acceleration, or a faster helicopter. You can upgrade every time you collect four wrenches. If you crash head-on into a barricade, it's likely that your vehicle will be destroyed. If this happens, a helicopter will automatically airlift a replacement to the track.
