I have played and own many race games and decided to rank and rate games I own, previously owned, and a few others I played. This is my favorite category of gaming and I'm a fan of racing in general and enjoy speed in real life. I haven't played every race game in existence, so a few good ones may be missing at this point. Comments are appreciated as they give viewers different opinions and give newcomers a better idea of these games. Another nice thing about the list is it has hard to find games which don't have enough votes to have a ranking. The games I haven't played yet and I'm very curious about are:
*Speed Circuit
*6-Tage Rennen
*Win, Place, Show
I will keep this list updated through the passage of time. All game ratings subject to change as plays accumulate.

The Comprehensive Book of Racing:http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/41821



This is a little closer how the racing category should look for a race fan. This list will inlcude all types of racing games including a lot that BGG doesn't list in this category: Start Your Engines! Everybody will have there own favorites and as you will see I'm not a huge fan of Robo Rally or Pitchcar. Hopefully you will find it entertaining and/or helpful.

This has a double sided track: Bonus!

British Comic Strip Characters. Don't know anything about the comic strip, but it is a fun game.

Not so British I guess. That shows what I know about comic books.

Great racing system with a mediocre theme. I really don't care to kill pedestrians in my race games and wish the system was applied to normal rally racing. I'm also not a huge fan of shoot them up race games. I like to leave my killing to war games.
