Top classic car racing games

 What are the best racing games on PC? Whether mastering muddy tracks in Dirt Rally or embracing Forza Horizon 4’s brilliant Britain, here are the best racers around.

Picking the very best racing games on PC is no easy task. So many elements contribute: the genre’s not only about graphical fidelity and hair-raising sound design – though both certainly help – it’s also about pulling you into the action as if you’re there in the driver’s seat, eyes strained as the asphalt whips past at 240kph. From honing your timing for a perfect gear shift to kicking out the back-end for a sublime drift, a quality racing game just feels right.

Don’t go asking, “How could you forget about Grand Prix Legends! Where’s Geoff Crammond?!” When versions of those games surface on Steam or GOG, we’ll be the first in line to play them again… and inevitably find they haven’t aged as well as we hoped. So for those of you who are just looking to hop in and fire up the engine of a superb racer, whether that’s an intricate sim or an arcade thriller, we’ve got some breakneck PC racers for you.


FORZA HORIZON 4

Playground Games’s latest racing title has left the Aussie Outback for the British Isles in Forza Horizon 4. Forza’s ten-hour campaign has you race through the Scottish Highlands, coast around the Lake District, and drive through quaint British villages.

As the seasons change between spring, summer, autumn, and winter, so do the landscapes. You’ll have to adapt your driving to suit each season, you can feel your car react to subtle changes like wet leaves and icy roads making you more aware of the terrain and forcing you to skillfully master it if you want to record the best track times. If you need any help getting started, just read our Forza Horizon 4 beginner’s guide.

You can take part in traditional races, seasonal championships, co-op campaigns, stunt jumps, and endurance tests in a variety of speedy and stylish vehicles ranging from modified transit vans to one-off hypercars. Coast around the British countryside and get your hands on classic cars, and yes, there’s a James Bond Car pack that gives you a choice of iconic Aston Martins. As you’ll find in our Forza Horizon 4 PC review is quite the road trip.
