A good game for children and adults. Card management is important but everybody can enjoy the crashes and spin-outs. Doesn't take up much room either to play or store.

A fun,quick, game to play. It may have been a bigger hit if they had or can come up with a NASCAR twist on it.

My gaming group is enjoying this game very much at the moment. It's an excellent time 'filler' especially when something 'light' and relatively simple is called for. It really is playable in 20 mins and very easy to teach. There's a simple option to string several games together in a series of events - race championship - if you will, that adds a little more meaning and game tactics as players try to promote their own cars whilst hindering those of their nearest championship rivals. Good, clean , simple fun.

Unless I'm missing something, not much strategy involved in this game. Dumb luck on the last couple of card-plays seems to decide the outcome.

Gentlemen (and ladies), start your engines! Overtake the polesitter. Take advantage of cars on the wrong line. Push your equipment to the limit with a hard charge, risking engine or gear failure. Outduel the other crews in the pits. Avoid race-ending crashes and costly spins. Stay in the slipstream as you stalk the leaders. Score points for finishing positions. Shuffle the cards and do it again. Can you accumulate the most points over the course of the racing season?

FORMULA MOTOR RACING is a fast-paced card game in which each player maneuvers a two-car team in search of the Constructor's Championship. You control the fate of your cars and those of your opponents through the timely play of cards. The player whose team scores the most points over a series of races wins the championship. Each race takes 20 minutes or less to complete. Play just a few races for a quick game, or simulate an entire season, including the Driver's Championship and variable race lengths. You decide how many races will constitute the season at the start of play to fit the playing time you have available. FORMULA MOTOR RACING is the quickest-playing auto racing game in existence. It has very few rules to master and is easy to teach.
