Seems similar to another game, Data Wing, which was super cool. 

Data Wing is great, and originally this game was going to have a wall riding mechanic inspired by it. Instead I went for a more retro racing game :)

Just finished the shareware Grand Prix and it's great so far. As a linux user I really appreciate there being a DOS release as I could easily run it on DosBox.

It's good

Soundtrack slaps, shiny polish throughout

Controls are tight and responsive and drifting around the levels works really well

Grand prix is just short enough that I don't get bored but long enough that the between-race decisions still feel like they matter

Great "WipEout meets Micro Machines 2" game for DOS. Works fine in DOSBox on my old Windows XP retro computer, best performance on a more modern machine - also using DOSBox. The OPL-based music fits the game very well.

The hidden shortcuts in the tracks are fun to discover and helpful in higher difficulty levels.

Wishlist items for SlipSpeed 2:

 - Local multiplayer (Micro Machines 2-style "shared screen" multiplayer where one gains points by getting more than a screenful ahead of the competition)

 - Campaign mode / progression (saving of progress, maybe earning gold medals in all tracks in all difficulty levels and or unlocking tracks by winning at the grand prix?)

 - Track editor and user-created content?

This game's fun.  Very fun.  Highly recommended.  The game controls.  They seem familiar.  Like Combat Cars.  For Sega Genesis.  The difference?  This game's better.  Way better.
