Great
Thanks for your quick answer
So now I guess I can play Downforce with my Top Race game (pegasus edition with 4 tracks).

This is the same reason I came here. I guess I can use the Downforce bidding rules with Top Race? The only real difference is that there will be no power cards, right?

Well, and we think the new art, the cars, and the tracks are pretty neat too

Hope you won't mind my pitching in late here.

If the cards for Downforce are the same as those for Top Race, can I also play Downforce simply as a straightforward racing game, first across the line wins, without the betting mechanic mid-play? The bidding for cars mechanic at the start would stay the same.

Sure. There's a decent chance someone just won't get good enough cards to have a chance of winning -- especially at higher player counts -- but as long as everyone goes in with eyes open, it should be fine.

It's much more viable at 2 players using the special two-player rules.
