Need for Speed Shift for iPad would suit what you are looking for. I don't have it but it has gotten rave reviews. If you later prefer realism, Real Racing would be the best racing sim currently for the iPad.

I've tried an awful lot of racing games, and the one I keep coming back to is, surprisingly, Cro-Mag Rally. Especially now that it is tied into Game Center, and you can race other people in real time. Yeah, it's totally not realistic, but each cart handles distinctly differently, and all of the typical driving techniques apply - ie. the line matters - that is, if you hit your apex, you will be faster.

Reckless Racing...

It's a top down view racer but with great visuals and surprisingly fun gameplay as well. Has plenty of tracks and online as well.

No sim nonsense, just good arcade racing fun that is perfect with touch screen controls and not having to learn to steer by turning your iPad.

Check it out, I loved it so much, I even got it for my MBP to kill some downtime or even at home connected to my 27" ACD.



If you like the first person perspective but still arcade with cars, Asphalt 6HD from Gameloft should fit the bill. It's a bit frustrating at first but easy to get the hang of and I imagine it should run great on an iPad 2. I have it for my original and it still runs very smooth.

In the end, I still go back to Reckless Racing.

The only racing game I have is Asphalt 6 and I love it! I got it when it was full price but I think it's discounted now

Forgot about that one. Was just updated recently and I love taking down Duke Nukem.

Real Racing yes, is not very good. But Real Racing 2 HD is very Gran Turismo like. I enjoy it a lot.
