This is the racing sim that >I< think we need.
The physics are as realistic as those in X-Plane, with engine power, tire cohesion, and aerodynamic drag and downforce all accurately modeled.
The tracks are the most fantastic things I could dream up... tracks that... COULD exist.
Now, with 500+ horsepower supercars and realistic physics, you can tackle those tracks that only exist in our imagination, but COULD be built in reality if we ever dared...
And, with in iPhone 6+ and a cheap Google Cardboard headset, you can do the whole thing in 3-D VR... which is really quite amazing. The world looks HUGE in there!
Now with support for Google Cardboard! (Recommended for iPhone6+, which fills the headset perfectly)
Despite the silly name, Google Cardboard lets you get a little peek at what the Oculus Rift is going to be like when it launches... but at a very low cost that you can experiment with now, right on your iPhone!
Get a Google Cardboard headset here: https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/get-cardboard/
...and then just drop your iPhone into the headset and you have a 3-D VR racing sim!
Tilt your head forwards for gas, back for brake, and left and right to steer.
And, if you get Stradale-IO from Stradale.net, and run it on a desktop Mac, then you can use your joystick or racing wheel to drive, and tilt your head to look around the virtual 3-D world as you drive in it!
Since the Google Cardboard headset has a pair of 45-mm bi-convex lenses (one per eye), and Stradale renders the view for each one of your eyes into the appropriate lens, your eyes are getting the exact same information that they would if the world you were racing in was real… and 3-D. The virtual world you are driving in actually looks BIG. You simply cannot believe that a world that BIG could fit on a phone that SMALL! This is a little peak at the next generation of VR, without having to wait for the Oculus Rift.
Also, the App is now $1.99 and include all the cars and tracks... no need to mess around with In-App purchase any more, starting with this version.

Ratings and Reviews
The best game
The graphics aren't the best but this game is awesome. I got all 12 cars available. It has a mode where you can make your own track. It also has a BNSF train. I think there is about 7 different types of trains. I highly recommend getting this game. It also has down force physics. When it says that thing about fantasy violence it is just some red that comes up on the screen when you crash. The cars can be hard to control so I recommend this game for people 12 and up. If you have an iPhone 6+ you can put in the Google cardboard thing if you know what that is. Please support this company and get this game so they can make more.
I'm really enjoying Stradale on my iPad Air 2. It reminds me of the Atari classics Hard Drivin' and Race Drivin', both of which took care to simulate core driving mechanics as accurately as the technology allowed, but with crazy tracks. The controls are accurate - I'm finding virtual buttons for gas and brake with tilt steering emulates the driving experience well. And it's hard! Which is refreshing - a lot of us grew up with games that made no effort to hold your hand and this carries on that tradition. Trying something again and again until you nail it is immensely more satisfying than being assisted by a malleable A.I. that wants to give you a participation award.
I like this game. But I like Real racing better
The graphs are good but not the top quality compared to the best games today. I would like a realistic cockpit and dash in car. To feel like you are actually drive the car. I don't think the red splatter paint is necessary.
