F1 Race Stars, a new arcade kart racer from Codemasters, will be released this November for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Designed to blend the world of F1 with fun arcade racing for all ages, F1 Race Stars is currently in production at Codemasters Racing Studios in Birmingham.

F1 Race Stars will take players on a world tour of Formula One locations, including Monaco, Silverstone and the new Circuit of Americas in Austin, Texas, recreated as fantastical racing circuits scattered with power-ups.

Players can compete in four-player split-screen races, or head online to take part in races of up to 12 people.

"We're really excited to bring the whole cast of Formula One into a fun new world of racing," said Chris Gray, senior producer. "We've really let our Art and Design teams off the leash to bring F1 stars' personalities alive in a new way and create a game where racing fans of all ages can jump into all-action solo, split-screen and online multiplayer races.

"It's the game we've wanted to create for a long time and, building on our strong relationship with Formula One Management Limited, we're now able to bring Codemasters' long-standing expertise in track design and AI to create a Formula One racing experience quite unlike any other."
