That's a lot of home versions!  The only Atari system to get this game was the ST, wow!  The closest thing to this game is Super Burnout on the Jaguar.

Argonaut's Bikers for the Konix multisystem/Slipstream would have been interesting to see.

Other than Super Cycle (Eypx) and Super Burnout, what were the best clones doing the rounds of Super Hang On?.

Some of those versions are really bad, the Commodore 64 version is particularly horrible compared to the excellent Spectrum version. The NEC PC 88 version was atrocious too with those sprites that flickered constantly but then I don't know much about that machine.

I am really surprised he didn't include the Hang On update for the Saturn:
