1Win the race on Switch

Fast RMX 1

It has taken a long while for it to happen, but the Nintendo Switch is now home to some very good racing games.

It doesn’t have its own equivalent of the Gran Turismo series yet, and there’s nothing on it that comes close to offering the sheer bliss that the Forza Horizon series provides, but if you just want a great racing game on Switch there are more than a handful of games that can offer it.

Some of the games offer a more realistic experience, like WRC 9. Others are more arcadey, offering fast-paced action and lots of adrenaline, like GRIP. And some are just all about having ridiculous amounts of fun, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. But which ones are the best?

Wonder no more, as we’ve rounded up 12 of the best racing games on Switch right here. Click through to see our picks, and read more about them.
