A playable demo of F1 Race Stars will be released prior to the game's launch next month, an advert for the game has revealed.

Details on the demo are still to be announced, however.

A Codemasters representative said that it could not confirm a release date for the demo, nor details on the demo's content, when contacted by VideoGamer.com.

F1 Race Stars is a kart racing spin-off to the core F1 franchise, featuring stylised visuals and 'cutesy' interpretations of real-life professional F1 racers.

It's essentially F1 meets Mario Kart.

The game launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 16.
