All music can be overridden in game by holding one of the VR buttons during the "Gentlemen start your engines" screen. VR1 plays "The King of Speed", VR2 plays "Lets Go Away", VR3 plays "Sky High" and VR4 plays the secret bonus track, "Pounding Pavement". The latter can be accessed in the Saturn game by holding on this screen.
While the game will initially yell at you for doing so, it is fully possible to drive around tracks in reverse. A reverse lap is treated legitimately, and you'll still get time extensions. You can even finish the race while driving in reverse, though you will always be placed in last position.
By holding VR2, VR3 and VR4 at once, a secret fifth birds eye view is enabled.
Three-Seven Speedway contains strange slot machine banners, which can be manipulated by pressing the button. Getting three 7s will give you seven seconds of extra time, with three BARs giving you an extra five. Three cherries will give you a random amount of extra time. The game only allows you to do this once during a race, though with multiplayer games every user can trigger it.
In Dinosaur Canyon, take the first left from the starting position and persue the road backwards. The road bends to the right and leads to a dead end, where the player will be greeted with a sign that reads "CONGRATULATIONS You Just Lost Your Sponsors!".
Jeffry Mcwild from Virtua Fighter appears as a statue in Sea-Side Street Galaxy. Travel in the wrong direction for more than two laps, and he'll appear upside-down.
High score jingles
Like some of Sega's other games, giving specific initials in the results screen will trigger jingle tracks from previous Sega titles:
|O.R||OutRun||A.B||After Burner||P.D||Power Drift||V.R||Virtua Racing|
|V.F||Virtua Fighter||SHO||Super Hang-On||SMG||Super Monaco GP||G.F||Galaxy Force|
|R.M||Rad Mobile||S.C||Stadium Cross||EXN||F1 Exhaust Note||S.F||Strike Fighter|
|GLC||G-Loc: Air Battle||TOR||Turbo OutRun||ORS||OutRunners||GPR||GP Rider|
|F.Z||Fantasy Zone||E.R||Enduro Racer||SDI||SDI||QTT||Quartet|
While the horse is unlocked by landing in first place on every track, holding and on the title screen, then pressing will save you the bother. The "automatic" horse is brown, while the "manual" horse is grey and both can travel as fast on grass as they can on tarmac. They also cannot take damage and so can use the pit lanes like normal roads.
