After enjoying K2, we are looking for another racing game for two players. Are there recommendations?

Thunder Alley worked surprisingly well with two.

It's a bit unconventional, but Odin's Ravens (second edition) is a 2 player racing game.

Just as K2 works well with 2 because each player has 2 climbers, many racing games work well when players control more than 1 racer.
Some like Thunder Alley has rules for tallying your final score from multiple finishes (although I'm not really a fan of TA).
Others like Leader 1 and Tour: Cycle Free focus on you using teammates to support your primary racer (although these are both still better with more than 2 teams).
And others like Formula D can be easily modified with house-rules/fan variants for tallying your final score from multiple finishes.
Rallyman is probably my favorite racing game with just 2 racers, since each player is basically playing solitaire trying to get their best time, with the only interaction being you being able to learn a bit from the other player's previous turns and choosing to play safer or riskier in later stages if you are ahead or behind on time.

Lewis & Clark is a good suggestion

Snow Tails is a fun one

If you don't mind something lighter with a bit of take that Jamaica is a good one.

As long as you don't mind having to operate a dummy player than Jamaica is a fun two player game.

Automobiles is one we've really enjoyed at all player counts, a cool cube bag builder that feels like you are involved in a race.

I came in to suggest Odin's Ravens as well.
Racing games tend to be better with more players so this is a bit of a challenge. What about something like Streetcar though?
