Looking back, I’m surprised to discover we’ve barely mentioned free-to-play race ’em up RaceRoom [official site]. Our simulated man Tim Stone dug it way back in 2012 but since then… well then, let’s rectify that, as I’ve heard pretty good things about it.
This weekend, you can drive everything for free. Just like test drives at car showrooms, they hope you’ll be wowed and want to buy it. Just like test drives at car showrooms, I want to feel cool driving cars I can’t afford.
As the news here is already dealt with – hey, every car and track is free to play with this weekend – let’s ramble a bit.
I don’t drive. I can’t drive. I won’t drive. I live in places with most things I need within walking distance, and good public transport for the rest. I often think poorly of people who own cars in central-ish London, especially ridiculous big ones. That said, I would learn to drive if I could roar through remote and wild lands in a ridiculous muscle car, distrubing the peace and mowing down jackalopes.
I notice RaceRoom has a few Camaros and Mustangs and Corvettes. This alpine track doesn’t look half-bad either. Well… they are all free to try this weekend, and there’s no danger I’ll scratch them on a test drive.
RaceRoom is on Steam.
