Sega Super Circuit Was The Most Ridiculous Racing Game Ever

Imagine a racing video game where you actually controlled a real car in real time on a real track against other real competitors. Sounds pretty cool right. Now, if you scale everything down to fit inside of a small warehouse and swap the real cars with RC cars, then you have the premise of Sega’s failed racing video game Sega Super Circuit. The crazy concept pitted drivers into big arcade racing simulators with a live camera feed from the camera mounted on their corresponding RC cars, and put them on a wild neon track with spectators looking on. It’s not really surprising this costly endeavor never took off, but it’s interesting to see how early Sega was willing to try and push the boundaries of what games were capable of.
