    Very nice game, played it in the early 90s. Controls are the only downside, while until today I thought it is not possible to steer and accelerate or brake at the same time. Today I played this game here via "play in browser" option. Thank you for that. I recommend playing using numeric keys, because you can use 7 for accelerate+steer left, 9 for accelerate+steer right. Still not very comfortable, but thanks to this I run immediately in the top of high scores! Which is the game probably not keeping, but if you want challenge: 911: 46 432 and Testarossa: 58 092 :)
