NFS: Porsche Unleashed

There was this hoverbike one, Zero-something....or something Zero. I believe this was on Super Nintendo

To be honest the bug never really bit me with racing games. Most of my time with vehicle games was spent in airplanes.

@warmblur: Yeah, it bugs me to no end that we will never see Uniracers on any newer platform due to Pixar apparently having a copyright on cartoonish unicycles.

OG/PS2 era and beyond, I've largely stopped caring.

N64 in general was full of great racing games.

However, my favorite retro racing game is Mario Kart: Double Dash for GameCube.
