I thought Paris Dakar was developed by Athena (from title screen)? Also, I recall the sticker on the cart had a programmer credit on it? Miyazawa something...?

Toru Miyazawa. I see a title screen with a 1994 Athena copyright, but that's not the original title screen. It appears to be some Dezaemon thing. (The game came out in 1988.) CRV (talk) 04:48, 17 December 2014 (CET)
That's right, Toru. Given simplicity of the game, it could be a one man show RE the developer. I know someone who was at Jaleco around then, so will ask about Monty: maybe it's the same person.

Could this be Zap?

The font shared by Elysion, Paris-Dakar Rally Special, Monty no Doki Doki Daisassou and Transformers: The Head Masters is also used in Ankoku Shinwa: Yamato Takeru Densetsu and Super Rugby (all FC/FDS titles). Zap was involved in the development of the latter two according to the interview with Hitoshi Akashi.
