WHAT "hardware accelerated sprites" does lotus use? I think the only thing that sprites would be usefull in this game is the Status display, but otherwise it is all bitmaps all the time (not sure the main car is made of sprites, but I guess it is not). It is the Amiga Hardware that makes displaying of the road so fast since you don't really need to copy stuff around with the processor you can just change the pointers and achieve the effect. If that is not using the Amiga Hardware then I don't know what is
