Needs game centre or some sort of thing to play against random people.

It doesn't save friend requests, every time I start a new game I have to resend them.

Which will be great when it does, but is a horrible way to release a game. There's absolutely no reason for anyone to release a turn-based multiplayer game on the app store these days WITHOUT random matchmaking built in. Pocket Heroes had the same problem, and probably lost a buncha players because of it, as not everyone comes to sites like this where they can get people to play with. I can deal with not having game center - although I far prefer GC to having to create a new account for every game - but if you're gonna roll your own MP implementation, it really NEEDS random matchmaking.

How exactly do the stops work, I'm not really understanding that?

If you don't stop the required number of times within the boundaries of the corner, you take damage to your tires (I believe 1 damage per space you would move past the end of the corner if it's the same as Formula D). If you take too much tire damage, you crash and lose.

My user name is Toasty Cat, yet to play a game because there seems to be an issue with a second friend request confirmation popping up after the first which won't go away, yet I can use the controls underneath... ><

Edit: I reinstalled to sort the issue, and now, I love it! It reminds me of a formula one board game I have

Exactly. So you have to gauge if you are going to fast to take the upcoming turn and also decide whether or not to slow in the turn. It's usually wiser to slow down right before the turn, just like in real racing, and then accelerate out of the turn.
