13 x 30 minute episodes
Tess, Dan and Daisy Darret learn after their parents died in a mysterious accident that the family’s stunt driving show was a cover for a secret crime-fighting organisation called Pole Position and that Wheels (a clever Mustang) and Roadie (a sleek racer) are actually high-tech vehicles of justice.
The crew spent their time busting crooks following the directives of a secret force led by the Darrets’ Uncle Zach (Jack Angel). Joining them in all their adventures was the Darrets’ monkeylike feline Kuma (Marilyn Schreffler).
The animated action series was based on an Atari (licensed from Namco) arcade game of the same name.
