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.

Click on overlay next to the different types of racetracks and get it in full color.

Nifty little AI game and since your here you might as well play a game. This is a basic version of Bolide that is quick and fun.

Nice game, but I had a hard time with the board because it's in German. auctioned off. Needs an English Re-Print. Don't get me wrong as this has an excellent mechanic and probably should be rated much higher in this list.

I owned this at one time and even made homemade horses with detachable chariots. I never had any luck getting this one on the table and traded it away. This needs a new design and much needed updates. Photo showing my custom made horses w/detachable chariots.
