Great game, fast action, lots of tense moments because making a mistake can be critical in winning or losing...there is a decent reward system during leveling in management mode that makes me want to keep on going and going. Starting from a terribly slow car and making it to A9 is a great feeling as the car is much faster.

The official formula 1 races are great too. They have the cars split into 4 tiers according to their speed in last years championship, so you have RBR/Mclaren/Ferrari, Lotus-Renault/Mercedes/Force India, Williams/Sauber/Toro Rosso, Loutus/HRT/Virgin.
The official cars are much faster than the player built cars. The level is capped at 30 right now but once the final game is finished/released, rumor is that the level cap will be 100!

The game reminds me of Super Off-Road from back in the 90s arcade era but with a modern twist and much more depth to it. The mouse controls are very intutive, imo. They feel great.

I have take some screenshots in Eyefinity(6048x1080) and posted them on my webspace, if you want to take a look, check them out here:

Let me know what you all think! Recommended browser is Chrome, btw.

This game has come a long way in the past couple months, I urge people who haven't checked it out, to please do so. It's a fun and very challenging game depending on the level of competition you want...there has been a lot of new content added and the Community Grand Prix Championship is a blast.

They are having a small promotion right now with paypal, it's some great items for someone just starting out in the game.

Here is a video I took of the game during regular gameplay:
