Here are our picks for the best Steam Autumn Sale racing game discounts. All offers are valid until 29 November so don't miss out!
If you’ve never tried iRacing before, now is a perfect time.
Regarded as one of the most authentic sim racing games ever made, iRacing features a wide variety of racing disciplines from NASCAR to IndyCar.
With regular online events with realistic regulations, authentic driving physics, and updates adding new cars and tracks, iRacing is a must-have for sim racing fans.
Unlike most racing games, iRacing requires an online subscription. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you can get a one-month subscription for just £3.05 in the Steam Autumn Sale or six months for £13.59 and 12 months for £22.49.
When you think of pc sim racers, iRacing, rFactor 2, and Assetto Corsa probably come to mind. But the Automobilista series deserves more recognition.
Developed by Reiza Studios, Automobilista 2 primarily focuses on Brazil racing including Stock Car Brazil and Copa Truck.
However, it also lets you race a variety of licensed and generic Grand Prix racing cars from different eras. One standout feature even lets you select the time, date and season, which changes the track accordingly.
The sequel is built on the Madness engine – the same engine that powers the Project CARS games. After EA killed Project CARS, Automobilista 2 will hopefully continue the series' legacy and serve as the Project CARS sequel we never got.
With 60 per cent off, Automobilista 2 is reduced to £13.99 in the Steam Autumn Sale.
DIRT Rally 2.0
With Codemasters taking over the WRC license from KT Racing, the future of the DIRT series is uncertain.
Released back in 2019, DIRT Rally 2.0 is still regarded as one of the best rally simulation games ever made, up there with Richard Burns Rally thanks to its demanding driving physics, challenging stages, and variety of cars from multiple eras.
Being a simulation game, DIRT Rally 2.0 is less forgiving than the mainline DIRT games, but that’s what makes it so rewarding. It also offers one of the best VR driving experiences.
The original DIRT Rally game was recently removed from Steam, so grab the sequel while you still can. With 75 per cent off, DIRT Rally 2.0 is only £4.49 in the Steam Autumn Sale. You can also get the Dirt Rally 2.0 Game of the Year Edition for £8.74.
The Crew 2
If you’re looking for a Forza Horizon alternative, look no further than The Crew 2. Ubisoft’s open-world racer takes place in a massive recreation of the entire United States of America that dwarfs Forza Horizon 5’s Mexico map.
Not only can you get behind the wheel in a huge variety of sports cars and supercars, but you can also take to the skies and seas with the ability to spawn in planes and boats on the fly.
Ubisoft’s post-release support has also been outstanding, with regular Series updates adding new cars, story missions, and gameplay improvements.
The Crew 2 Standard Edition is on sale for £8.39 with 80 per cent off while the Gold Edition that includes a Season Pass is down to £14.99.
