Famicom Grand Prix: F1 Race is a Japanese Famicom Disk System video game released in 1987. The game is a racing title that was planned to be released in America, though was later canceled. The game features Mario on the cover though he doesn't play a role in the actual game. In the game players would race Formula 1 cars in hopes of coming in first place. The more the player progressed, the more challenging the game would become. This game was possibly an ancestor to the Mario Kart series, most likely due to the fact it features Mario and possesses similar 2D racing mechanics, which was later carried on to Super Mario Kart. A sequel was released, known as Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally, and it was very different from F-1 Race.
