David Racing's gameplay is like any kart racing game with karts and tracks. The way David Racing works is that there are thunder coins and ? boxes in the track and when you go through the box you will get a power-up and can use it against other racers and thunder coins are coins that are all over the track and when you are hit by a power-up you will lose 3 or sometimes 4 coins. When 10 thunder coins are collected, special content can be unlocked like new parts for customizing you kart or motorcycle or cheats codes and secrets. Customizing karts and motorcycles are included in the game like customizing the wheels, color, or the entire kart/motorcycle. There are also missions in the game and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection which lets you play the game with many people around the world and each race that go up to 14 racers.
