Zero Games have announced that Hot Lap Racing, the self-labelled sim-cade racing game, will be released on July 16, 2024. The trailer, embedded below, also features a number of licensed vehicles such as the Brabham BT24, Minardi M191, Renault Laguna BTCC and Peugeot 9X8. While I haven’t seen an awful lot of gameplay I am really happy to see that a group who obviously have passion for racing are making a new racing game for us to enjoy. Remember: Every sim-cade title is a gateway to the hardcore sim racing we hope to see everyone eventually enjoy.

You can wishlist and follow the title on Steam.
