Releasing late September, 2007, Race Driver: Create & Race makes use of both the Nintendo DS stylus and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Players can use the Nintendo DS stylus to create tracks on the innovative and intuitive Track Designer, then personalize their cars and take on the world using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Race Driver: Create & Race features 4-player, Single-Card Play sharing, where even the most extreme petrol heads will have never-ending hours of intense racing ahead of them. With the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players can trade paint with up to three friends simultaneously on any of the 30 official world class race circuits using more than 20 vehicles. Furthermore, once players have created their own unique tracks they can host a game and laugh with maniacal glee as their challengers’ careen off track while trying to avoid deviously placed chicanes and other obstacles.
