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.

Destruction and racing are not my favorite combinations for a race game, but this is still pretty fun. I would rather play a war game to do some killing.

My Rating: 5.8

You want to be the fastest predator, but therefore you need energy. To get the energy, you eat prey. Eating a butterfly brings you a little bit of energy (1), a mouse more (2), rabbits more than mice (3), pigs are even more nutritious (4) and eating a deer brings you the most energy (5). Other predators simultaneously target prey. So try to predict where they go to. Try to be the first at the end of the trek.
