I must note that Saturn apparently aimed for high score, rather than shortest time. The distinction here is that, when going for high score, you want to reach the finish line with as much speed as possible for extended distance scoring, but fastest time wants you to cross it with as little leftover distance as possible. Saturn also didn't know the full extent of what pausing can really do at the time, which can stop the in-game timer from ticking, which would also add to score. One can imagine how that sounds.

I've been learning more about this game, though. There are a few mistakes I can now see that I likely missed in earlier courses. I may go back to deal with them.

I've been keeping track of rerecord counts for individual courses. C1:1319 C2:2018 C3:1979 C4:1635
