I love this one. Looks good, feels great. Took me a little bit to get used to the way the ship controls, but it's smooth and fun to play. Very much like Zone mode in Wipeout.
My best time so far was 3:42 (edit: 3:48 (edit2: 4:49)) with the Dagger.

also, as far as I can tell, the game says "new best time" sometimes when I very definitely didn't get a best time

Holy crap, this one feels really well-done, and idk, if that was your inspiration, but i've kind of gotten some WipeOut (and maybe SkyRoads) vibes too. I like how weird the ship control physics are, even though it required some mental adjusting from me to be able to play it properly, lol. There are things that i could complain about a bit (~~liike the music being kind of unfitting, pls don't take it personally Azur aaaaaaaaaa~~), but it's really, really polished overall, and i have the feeling that it's going to place high in the compo.

BTW, is this real, polygonal 3D (for the track geometry) or some fancy faking technique?

After getting used to the controls, I found it very fun to play! Quite challenging, which makes it more addicting to race.
I didn't expect the music to be as cute as it was, but I think it does fit! My expectation was something more rock ala F-Zero, or electronic like Wipeout, but this goes hand in hand with the aesthetics.

@azureglade
dunno if it's hard
but it's definitely a bit wonky and awkward

i played this after seeing you post it on tweetor. Enjoyed learning to master the controls - i thought the skill curve was nice. Was spooked everytime the screen went white
