App description: "If you'd like a racing game with some bite and verve, you'll want to try Speedway GP. There's enough grit and grind to intrigue even the most jaded enthusiast of racing games. This one is a Keeper!" ~ MobileTechReview.

The official Speedway GP 2011 game delivers all the action, excitement and death-defying thrills of speedway motorcycle racing! Experience the breakneck adrenaline rush of hitting the dirt track at 80-MPH - with no brakes! - in the App Stores premier motorbike racing title.

Speedway takes place on oval dirt tracks, with riders reaching up to 80-miles per hour on the straights, and then power-sliding into the corners at full speed; and all with no brakes. The single-gear motorbikes are fuelled by methanol, providing a significantly more explosive compression ratio than standard fuels, and resulting in dangerously high speeds with very little in the way of safety measures.

Speedway GP 2011 brings all this adrenaline-fuelled excitement to your iOS device with beautifully detailed 3D visuals and exhilarating realism. Race around 11 different real-life stadiums as you step into the intrepid boots of 15 actual speedway superstars in the most daring, dangerous and dynamic motorcycle racing game on the App Store.

Video looks fun. Will keep an eye out for impressions. If controls are good and difficulty is fine this could be a blast.

Just got this as I am a suka for racing games. What a mistake. You simply tap the screen to start and then tilt to steer, but ultimately as you can't brake or ease off the gas, you slam into the barrier on corners. Doesn't really feel that good. I might try and give it another go, but it's possible it may get deleted before it gets a chance

I've just got this too - but not having that problem. Mainly because I'm following what the tutorial says, which is to slide your thumb left to bring the back end out.

Try the Touch controls.

Hmm. I must admit I know next to nothing about the actual sport, but surely the real bikes are equipped with the ability to brake/accelerate?.. Aren't they?

In any case, sounds like a gameplay video is needed at the very least; better a lite. Hard to imagine how this actually plays otherwise.

Top post has a video and says there is a lite version.

As I understand the sport from seeing it years ago, these bikes are raced flat out with the throttle wide open. The bikes are steered by sliding the back end out. The video looked great so I'm hopeful.

Since you've bought it, maybe search for YouTube videos of this kind of racing. May help you get excited about it :-)

I've never seen the sport, except small round ups on local TV when I was a kid, but I know the bikes don't have brakes. Think they only have one gear too.

I like racing games - and I like this, from the little I've played. It's a different mindset to normal racing games though - it's all about timing the turn and making the sweep through the apex as efficient as possible. From what I remember, again - as a child - actual races are the same.
