As a playtester for this game, I just want to say it’s a refreshing take on the racing genre with some very original mechanics that really make you feel like you’re in the driver’s seat. The use of moving templates instead of a grid, the hand-braking into corners, and the acquisition and use of “cool points” all make for a tense and fun racing experience.

Good on ya, Jimmy mate!

Had something similar with Speedway which never was a hit.
And isn't drifting only with two cars?

Haven’t played Speedway so I can’t say. And I’m not sure what you mean with the remark about drifting. Are you saying a game with a drift mechanic can only have two cars in it?

In real life drifter car racing is a 2 car race. But don't let this get in the way of what looks to be a fresh look at car racing game mechanics. This is a game with zero random elements, something i know gaming race fans will enjoy.

In my brief look at this, track position and racing line is key.

Thanks for the kind words, Chad!

I mentioned it elsewhere but, yes, I've taken some liberties with the concept of "drift racing" so that all players can be engaged at once.

Literally JUST got into drifting in the past two weeks and was coming up with board game ideas to convey drifting. Sucks that I couldnt think of something sooner but this is way better than my idea and I'm glad it's getting out there. Looks great and can't wait to play it!
