However, not everyone has a machine to run Forza Horizon at maximum, right?

That's why we've selected the best racing games for weak pc available on the internet for you to have fun with your friends or alone, without having to suffer from crashes.



We know that it takes work – and costs a lot of money – to keep your PC up to date to be able to run all the latest Racing games in decent quality. That's why we've rounded up 14 Racing games for the low-end PC that should run on almost anything. Also check out our Weak PC games: 48 games that run on any PC.

Best Racing Games for Weak PC

Lists aren't always perfect and getting unanimity on them is an almost impossible task. That's why we've organized our list of Racing games by alphabetical order. That is, the low PC Racing games that come first are not necessarily better than the ones at the bottom of the list.

Let’s race!

1. 1NSANE

With racing games like 4×4 Evolution or Midtown Madness having the party, only a little Codemasters gem called 1NSANE could escape the genre's darkest crevices. This is a game that serious off-road fans shouldn't ignore, even if you lean more towards the arcade.

Gameplay is classic arcade style: pilots fight for control of the flags, pass through checkpoints or clash mercilessly. The game's physics also follows this line of thinking, with fun over realism. While all vehicles have unique handling attributes, they slip and slide in a similar way. Still, it's an excellent racing game for the weak PC.

2. Carmageddon 2

Best XP game. There were never so many hidden objects and good graphics (for the time) in any game at that time. Carmageddon makes nascar games look downright boring and mind-numbing. Carmageddon has things I'm still discovering, even after many years of playing. Excellent racing game for weak PC.

3. Colin McRae Rally

On the one hand, beautiful graphics, excellent tracks, excellent handling and all the power of Rally Group B – especially touching for those who are passionate about the sport. Plus, driving Colin Mcrae's iconic Subaru is sensational.

On the other hand, some inconsistent obstacles, inauthentic modern cars, but that still put it in the rank of one of the best PC racing games weak as a Rally Game.

4. Driver: San Francisco

Despite the unusual script, Driver: San Francisco offers a lot of fun. It surprises the player until the last mission, in addition to the "shift" system working very well. In this version, the Driver will no longer be perceived as a GTA clone.

Excellent racing game for weak PC for those who want to get out of the ordinary with the GTAs of life.

5.Euro Truck Simulator 2

Who would have thought that a truck simulator would be so successful among gamers? This simulator is one of the most relaxing games ever, but it can also be very intense when transporting fragile loads.

The landscape is beautiful. When it rains in the game, I feel the same feeling of inner warmth as when it rains in real life. I just can't find anything “wrong” with this excellent racing game for a weak PC (but it's not really a racing hehe).

6. F1 2002

Overall this is the best F1 racing game to date, every detail has been covered. The game is great, the graphics are as expected for the time, the sounds are realistic and the ability to tweak and refine everything in the game is fantastic!

It has a well-deserved place among the best Racing games for the weak PC.

7. Flatout

Don't be fooled: the handling is remarkable and the fact that the tracks are full of obstacles that jump and crash in a realistic way makes everything more fun. Play in the excellent damage mode and it's easy to see that this game has perfectly nailed the core mechanics of a weak PC racing game with addictive handling.

8. Grand Prix Legends

Awesome game! He has a lot of character, which most games these days are lacking. Amazing mods too. The handling is great and very realistic. So, if you're bad at racing games, you won't even make the first turn hehe.

New tracks and paintwork look great with updates available on the web. Excellent racing game for weak PC, especially for those who enjoy classic cars.

9. Lego Racers 2

The adventure mode is pretty exciting, the ability to build cars from scratch and watch them fall apart on crashes is fun, and the split-screen competition is pretty cool. Excellent racing game for weak PC for those who are not looking for realism, but a lot of fun.

10. Midnight Club II

Midnight Club II is one of the best open world racing games I've ever played. It would at least be compatible with the Forzas of the time, and maybe even surpass them.

This game is over 10 years old being released in 2008 but to this day the game still looks amazing. I'd even say it looks better than the Xbox 360 version of GTA 5. If you consider yourself a fan of Rockstar or racing games, do yourself a favor and play this game. It's pretty light, which makes it an excellent racing game for the weak PC.

11. Midtown Madness

Totally classic arcade game from Microsoft. I played it when I was a kid, this game will stay in my mind until the end of my life.

The open world for cars was well done, there are no real explosions or killed anyone, so I can recommend this game to everyone who doesn't choose games for their graphics (especially since it's a weak PC racing game).

12. Motorcycle Racer

We already talked about this game here in the post 48 games for weak PC. Moto Racer Collection features the original Moto Racer, Moto Racer 2, Moto Racer 3 Gold Edition and Moto Racer 15h Anniversary. All very fun and refreshing for those who are used to racing cars. It should run me modest PCs without too many problems too.

13. Nascar 2003

This Battle Royale is an unusual bet by the Chinese giant Xiaomi. In addition to making smpartphones, smartwatches and in fact almost everything, it now tries its luck in the gaming world. And can't she have worked out? Survival Game Battle Royale is nothing revolutionary for the genre, but it's fun enough without having to leave the list of Battle Royales for weak PCs.

14. Need For Speed Underground 2

Another one that we have already talked about here on the site. I played this game when I was a kid on PS2 and guess what? I still play to this day. Nobody can resist the chance of having several tuned cars, lowered cars, and going around pulling cracks, especially for those who remember the release of the first Fast and Furious. Very badass and this racing game runs on any weak PC.
