Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
By far the best formula one game of the 16-bit generation. Exclusive to the console. Great career mode, sense of realism, sense of speed and sound effects!     
People who added this item 6 Average listal rating (3 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 0
Lotus II - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Port of Lotus III from the Amiga PC, Lotus is the series that came before Top Gear. Unfortunately, this game doesn't allow both music and sound effects at the same time. A difference between this and Top Gear is that this alternates point-to-point, with circuit racing. TG also has no obstacles in the courses, like this does. Like Top Gear, this has a lot of variety in the races and the fuel consumption factors in. It has two modes, one racing against other cars and one racing against time (like OutRun). This even has a course generator, where you set some parameters and the game generates a track for you to run.

Micro Machines : Turbo Tournament 96 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
The best Micro Machines game, and launched exclusively in Europe exclusively for the Genesis. All Micro Machines games have multiplayer and this one is a j-cart, allowing for up to 8 players.
People who added this item 3 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0
Top Gear 2 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
A port of Top Gear 2 from SNES and although it's not as good as the original, it's still quite good. The need for fuel was taken out from the game and it can't play music and sound effects at the same time; but the good gameplay and visual variety is top-notch.
People who added this item 2 Average listal rating (2 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 0
Power Drive - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
A quite advanced top-down rally game for the MD.
People who added this item 0 Average listal rating (0 ratings) 0 IMDB Rating 0
Super Skidmarks - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
One-screen (crazy) circuit racing. It's a j-cart with support to 6 players.
People who added this item 17 Average listal rating (12 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Virtua Racing - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
This is the only game to use the SVP chip from Sega to allow a very good port from this tridimensional racing game from the Sega arcades. Although it severely lacks content, it's still impressive, it even has different camera angles.
People who added this item 3 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 0
F1: World Championship Edition - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Sequel to the F1 from Domark, using a smooth scaler with tridimensional objects. It even has split-screen! Unfortunately, it's visually repetitive. Although it features some quick weather effects rarely.
People who added this item 2 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 0
Nigel Mansell's World Championship Racing - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Although not as good as its SNES counterpart, this is still a really good game. It's just unfortunate this has no split-screen. It's pretty varied visually for a formula 1 racing game, it even has some quick weather effects.
People who added this item 4 Average listal rating (2 ratings) 4.5 IMDB Rating 0
Super Off Road - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Circuit one-screen racing.
People who added this item 3 Average listal rating (0 ratings) 0 IMDB Rating 0
Formula One - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
F1 from Domark, using a smooth scaler with tridimensional objects. It even has split-screen! Unfortunately, it's visually repetitive.

People who added this item 16 Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0

Micro Machines 2 : Turbo Tournament - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
J-cart allowing for up to 8 players.
People who added this item 3 Average listal rating (1 ratings) 4 IMDB Rating 0
Newman Haas Indy Car featuring Nigel Mansell - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Using polygonal objects in the sides of the tracks, this is smooth, although repetitive visually. This has split-screen and allows you and one friend (or you and the CPU) to play the entire campaign as two racers on the same team.
People who added this item 1 Average listal rating (0 ratings) 0 IMDB Rating 0
Mario Andretti Racing - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
This one has three different types of cars: stock, sprint and indy. It also has different camera angles and good graphics. Too bad the gameplay is not that good, except for the indy modality, which is actually decent. Oh, it also has split-screen multiplayer.
People who added this item 4 Average listal rating (3 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 0
Kawasaki Super Bike Challenge - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
This motorcycle game uses the polygonal engine from Domark. The engine is great, although visuals are repetitive in it. Motorcycle sounds are very good.

People who added this item 19 Average listal rating (15 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0
Rock 'N' Roll Racing - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Unfortunately, this doesn't allow for music and SFX at the same time, so the announcer cuts the music when he talks.

Driving

Be a driver.
People who added this item 10 Average listal rating (8 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 0
Outrun 2019 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Futuristic Outrun. In my opinion it's the best Outrun on the Genny. Its engine is awesome, the sense of speed is great and so are the visuals.
People who added this item 9 Average listal rating (5 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 0
Lotus Turbo Challenge - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Port from Lotus II of the Amiga, made by Gremlin, the ones that would latter make Top Gear. This is checkpoint racing, similar to Outrun.
