World Grand Prix, known as The Circuit (ザ・サーキット) in Japan, is a racing game developed and published by Sega for the Sega Master System. It is effectively an updated version of the SG-1000/MSX game GP World, sharing many of the same ideas and features (including a track editor).

Gameplay

World Grand Prix is a simple formula one racing game reminiscent of Namco's 1982 arcade game Pole Position, in which you race across 12 tracks attempting to win the most points. In order to keep going, the player has to finish sixth or better in each race.

While the game is not paired with any official racing licenses, all of the pre-made tracks resemble circuits seen in the 1976 Formula One season. Names or locations for the circuits are never, though often the backgrounds can give further clues (for example, the British circuit, Brands Hatch features Big Ben and the UK Houses of Parliament in the background).

The Japanese cover art, however seemingly depicts the 1985 season, with Nelson Piquet's Brabham BT54 (7) in front of Alain Prost's McLaren MP4/2B (1).
