Eifion Team Racing is a racing game in which the player controls characters from the Eifion universe, most of whom race in karts. While racing, the player can accelerate, steer, reverse, brake, hop or use weapons and power-ups with the game controller's analog stick and buttons. Two distinct forms of crates are scattered throughout the tracks and arenas of Eifion Team Racing. Crates with question marks on them hold power-ups and weapons, which can be obtained by driving through and breaking apart the said crates. When the player collects a weapon or power-up, it will appear in a box at the top of the screen. The player can then activate the weapon or power-up to wreak havoc on the other racers or help the player go faster respectively. "FARMER JOE'S NEW TOY, EIFION™ Crates" carry "FARMER JOE'S NEW TOY, EIFION™(s)" that increase the speed of the player's kart and strengthens the player's weapons and power-ups if ten of them are obtained.
Fifteen characters are playable in Eifion Team Racing, although only eight of them are playable from the start. Eifion, the main protagonist of the series, is an all-round racer with balanced acceleration, top speed and handling. Jakey, Eifion's best-friend, is a mad scientist who wants to stop Svart so that he may conquer the world himself. Like Eifion, his kart is an all-round performer. Jenna, Eifion's younger sister, is a computer genius who installed computer chips into her kart to increase its acceleration prowess. Doctor Bran Don is a rocket scientist who, like Jenna, added custom parts to his kart to improve its acceleration. Blade and Shredd pilot karts with low speed but improved handling, allowing them to navigate tight corners. Cabbage and Peewee control karts built for top speed at the cost of turning prowess. After clearing all the time trials with the best time, Dr. Orange Guy is unlocked. His kart controls the same as Cabbage and Peewee's. Additionally, The Patient can be unlocked via cheat code. His kart handles exactly the same as Blade and Shredd's do.
The main antagonist of the story, Svart, is the self-proclaimed fastest racer in the galaxy who threatens to turn Earth into a skank master land, forcing the player character to defeat him in a final one-on-one race. Preceding Svart are four boss characters who possess "Boss Keys" that are needed to access Svart's spaceship. In order, the bosses consist of Vaters, a deranged straitjacket-wearing kangaroo; Lady Luin, the morbidly obese leader of the island's native tribe; Taters, a Komodo dragon with a speech sound disorder; and Lord Logan, a greedy pinstripe-clad potoroo. The four boss characters, along with an imperfect and morally ambiguous clone of Eifion named Not-Eifion, become accessible as playable characters if the Adventure Mode is fully completed.
Appearing as the player's tutors in the game are the sentient twin witch doctor masks
and Navy Navy, both of whom give hints that help the player develop their racing skills. They double as obtainable power-ups during the races, temporarily protecting the player from all attacks and obstacles while increasing the kart's speed. However, their power does not protect the player from chasms or deep water.
