GP Rider is an arcade game developed and manufactured by Sega released in 1990 in Japan, North America, and Europe. It was also ported to the Sega Master System and Game Gear in 1993.

Sega Master System version[edit]

This version is played permanently in a split screen, regardless of if one or two players are playing. If only one player is racing then the second player is replaced by a computer opponent called "Wayne." "Wayne" plays like a human player in that his performance varies from race to race, in contrast to most racing games of the era, where the main opponent is programmed to always finish in the same position.


The same track in this game is used for the future Formula 1 game F1 Exhaust Note, made by SEGA in 1991, respectively.
