Interesting. How do you brake and accelerate? Auto accelerate? Touch the middle for brake?

Exactly this, though I don't mind an onscreen wheel with brake/accelerate buttons.

If its touch, then give us two brake buttons on each side of the screen to touch or just touch the middle quadrant.

Brake on each side of the screen and auto accelerate. That way you can easily brake no matter in which direction you steer.

I love tilt even with a heavy new ipad, but I prefer tilt by far, I just imagine my ipad is a steering wheel, and I play on my tv hdmi. But some games have poor tilt implementation, and those buttons are better especially for high scores.

But in most cases like Asphalt, nfs, repulze, etc, like tilt.

This. I feel that tilt is the only control scheme fit for a racing game.

Partly depending on the type of racing game. From the behind the car perspective, I prefer tilt. For top down/isometric view, an analog dpad/steering wheel (a la Death Rally or Mini Motor Racing).

But since everyone's different, put in as many options as possible.

On-screen wheel/slider for steering. With buttons for accelerating and braking.

Left/Right side of screen buttons. D-pad. Wheel. Anything but tilt for me.
As already suggested, the best option is to put in as many options as possible and let people choose.
Take a look at the NFS: MW thread in upcoming games to see how passionate people get about their preferred method being included.
Those that like tilt won't buy a game if it's not an option.
People that prefer some kind of on screen steering won't buy a game if it's not an option. Even with a major title like NFS.
