From Excite Bike to F1 2021, and almost everything in between, we’ve played a lot of racing games in our time, and quite frankly we don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Whether you’re on a wheel, controller, or keyboard, it doesn’t matter, we’re going to have a blast while racing against the clock, the AI, or other human beings. Two doors or four, open wheels, ovals and road courses, we love it all, and we love talking about it even more. As a group of fellow racing game nerds, we each have our own unique opinions, so we won’t always agree. Join us on our journey through the wide spectrum of the genre. Who knows, sometimes we may be mildly entertaining. So, with all of that in mind, keep listening for more coming very soon.
