It may be called Final Lap 2 but it isn't related to Pole Position II and is more-so its own sequel.

Who would have guessed?

Unused Graphics

The unused car graphics from the first game are still present. The palettes were edited, with the McLaren and Lotus recolored in later international revisions of the game following a controversy over explicit cigarette advertisements in the first game. Although the March car were not recolored for the player, the palette shown here are used for CPU controlled cars in both games.

The Final Lap logo from the first game. Final Lap 2 uses a smaller version of this logo on its title screen.

Unused Music

A short jingle possibly meant for the attract mode.

Uncompiled Music Sources

Located at 0x13D40 in the sound CPU ROMs is this drum pattern fragment from "Ending B" (which can be heard about 35 seconds in).
