Pole Position

Hey all you online gaming losers*, I'm looking to find a reasonable facsimile of the only video game I played "back in the day"; Pole Position. I'm setting my MB up to autocross, but want to alternatively hone my aging reflexes to practice for the sport of the gods. Are there any games similar to PP which are free, mostly free, almost free, illegally free, or just plain ripe for the taking out there?

btw: there's got to be some killer pron out there under this moniker, so don't be stingy

*Of course, by gaming losers, I meant gaming achievers

Z, look up "MAME" on Google. They've converted the ROM's from just about every old upright game console into files, and made software that emulates the original hardware, loads them, and runs them. Pretty neat stuff. I have a DVD full of them somewhere, and I'm fairly certain that there were several versions of Pole Position on them.
