Tail to Nose: Great Championship, known in Japan as Super Formula: Chijō Saisoku no Battle (スーパーフォーミュラ・地上最速のバトル "Super Formula: The Battle of the Fastest on the Ground"?), is a 1989 Formula One-based arcade racing video game developed and published by Video System.


Super Formula was one of the earliest arcade games related to Formula 1, in this case the 1988 season. Although being an unlicensed game, the teams, drivers, sponsors and the only four circuits available were inspired by real-life ones. The drivers are recognizable in the graphic representations of their faces.

It can be considered as the predecessor to the F-1 Grand Prix (video game series).
