Just tried it out and after one race got an out of memory crash, server communication is extremely slow as well. It did feel like a Ridge Racer game though.

Looks like the same game engine as Unbounded. Not a fan of F2P though.

How does this work? Do they send you the beta key through email?

Edit: Yes, they do.

It is more pay to have fun... There is no real competitiveness other than the leaderboards.

This game is crap. They want you to pay every time you crash. LOL

F2P model totally ruined it. If you don't pay, they take your car.
