It's funny that you should ask that. I discovered torcs earlier this week. For open source work, it's AMAZING. I've seen better graphics (though the graphics are still great) but for the price tag, you can't beat it.

Just went to gran turismo site to check out the screenshots. Amazing . Can't think of any race sim native to linux to match those graphics. And, yes, in fact I do live in a cave.

The best I've found;
VDrift
http://www.vdrift.net/
This one will be great. Already very playable.

racer
http://www.racer.nl/
The one I recommend.

The last I tried torcs (1 or 2 years ago?) it couldn't match either of the above in the physics department. Maybe no longer true?

Not sure if I grasp the sarcasm. Was my advice bad? I admit to being not much of a gamer.

Still a fan of Grand Prix Legends with the updates and play it with wine now and then. Never owned a playstation/xbox.

Torcs and racer look awesome. I suppose it'll come down to playability now.
Thanks for the replies,

The only racing game I play now is Flatout. I got it from a Gamestar Magazine CD. Not free, but a lot of fun. More destruction Derbie than GT though. Runs with Cedega.

And I still enjoy Stunts http://www.abandonia.com/genre.php?search=stunts - runs in dosbox.

Warsow also has a racing mode.
