Racing (Sim-Style)

Racing games are games which involve a competition of speed, where the task is typically to travel a certain distance in the shortest amount of time. Racing games usually involve motor vehicles such as automobiles and motorcycles. Racing games that attempt to realistically portray a real-world racing event are a common type of simulation, though not all racing games attempt to do this. Racing games are generally divided into two categories. These are Simulation, where the goal is to re-create real-world environements, tracks and physics; and Arcade, where the focus is generally on "fast action and fun" and often include things such as weapons, power-ups, and tracks such as stunt courses.
