Abandonware DOS title

The best abandonware racing games

Racing and driving games simulate driving races by putting the player in a variety of driving seats, like Formula 1 cars, motorbikes, all-terrain racing cars, or futuristic vehicles. The goal is usually winning a race against other vehicles in environments of varying degrees of realism. Some games push it to the limits by adding weapons or dispensing with the racing aspect altogether, allowing the player to drive freely.
