At this point there's probably no way the Wii U version would be well received, least of all considering it will be months late and (presumably) full price. There's also the bugs and glitches (which have already turned people off even if SMS resolves almost all of them), the way SMS has communicated with fans about it (not just the sarcasm but the cold shoulder treatment after the delay), and the misinformation of it being "Kickstarted by Nintendo fans" but arriving on the Wii U last of all. That's all before getting into the game's rough edges and somewhat sloppy execution (based on impressions), or subjectively limited selection of cars, and other complaints the game faced on PC/PS4/XBone. And then there's the possibility of downgraded features like fewer cars on track or simplified weather -- however, I don't think reviewers or most people would notice the Brush Tire Model unless SMS explicitly admitted it had to be done. It would be great to have the game on Wii U, but I think it's already screwed and could have done much better if things had gone as SMS originally planned, with a polished and well-functioning game launching simultaneously on all platforms last November. I would kinda rather wait for the NX if it meant SMS could make a better first impression with the game and be willing to continue supporting Nintendo in the future.
