F1 Race Stars is a kart racing game based on the Formula 1 franchise. The game features all teams and drivers from the 2012 season, as well as two fictional teams. The available circuits are loosely inspired by their real world counterparts, but most of the track are fictional, with elements such as loops, jumps, traffic, and other obstacles.
As with other games of the same genre, the game features power-ups for individual advantage, and sabotage of opponents. The game connects with Codemasters’s RaceNet for online multiplayer, but also supports local split-screen racing.
