LAI (Leisure Allied Industries) Sitdown OutRun Arcade Machine (Updated 11/09)

This is an interesting OutRun machine and very unlike any other released.

It was manufactured at L.A.I. Perth from a kit supplied by Sega Japan.

This version was only released in Australia.

Above- the rear has working light and quad exhausts like the deluxe.

So there you have it, another style of OutRun machine exclusive to Australia.

Thanks to Bruce Colbourne, M.D of Amusement Machine Distributors (Previously Sales Manager at LAI N.S.W) and also Steve Bryant International Sales Manager at Leisure & Allied Industries for their time and support trying to pull some history on this now rare arcade machine.

OutRun Machine Gallery(Updated 20/7)

Added a new page ‘1.2 OutRun Machine Gallery’
Over the past few months I’ve collected a lot of photos of OutRun machines from various sources. I have created a page that will be continually updated with photo’s of OutRun machines that can be enjoyed as a nostalgic trip to the 80’s or used as a reference for restoration. You may spot some other familiar machines too.
