Wer US Muscle Cars und der schwedischen Tourenwagenmeisterschaft (STCC) etwas abgewinnen kann, liegt mit Race On genau richtig, das man auch gleich als Bundle mit Race 07 erwerben kann. Wenn ich die Wahl hätte, würde ich allerdings zu GTR Evolution greifen, weil dort mit der Nordschleife sowie dem Arcade-Modus mehr geboten wird und mich die enthaltenen GT-Modelle vom Schlag eines Audi R8 doch mehr ansprechen als die motorisierten Muskelpakete aus Übersee. Fahrgefühl und Einstellungsmöglichkeiten an den Boliden sind auch bei Race On immer noch vorbildlich, aber die Grafikengine wird mittlerweile vor allem von der Konsolenkonkurrenz mehrfach überrundet. Wenn man zuvor Forza 3 oder NfS: Shift gesehen hat und anschließend in Race On einsteigt, glaubt man, eine kleine Zeitreise zu machen. Liebe Entwickler von SimBin: Eine moderne Engine muss her!

RACE On does not include the 2009 season, though, which is one less track to enjoy. The AI continues to be strong if too consistent, and competitive setups for most cars are provided for all tracks. This is very enjoyable simulation racing, from the way the cars handle to the variety of content to enjoy. RACE On is $10 cheaper than buying both RACE 07 and STCC together on Steam, plus you get all of the new content. It’s the same price as getting RACE 07 with GTR Evolution, and this represents a better value in my opinion. I think this would be a definite buy if RACE On had all of the GTR Evolution content, too. Still, getting the RACE On bundle and GTR Evolution together ($30 plus $20) equals a full price game, which I would consider all of the content as a whole to be. In the end, one of the best racing simulation series continues with another strong entry.

As it is, this rock-solid Race 07 variant is a difficult game to wholeheartedly recommend, despite being superb in both single and multiplayer. If you're new to SimBin's stark yet strikingly real racing recreations, I'd say pick up a cheap copy of GTR: Evolution or GT Legends instead. They offer much the same level of variety, vim and verisimilitude. If you're an old hand looking for something arrestingly fresh, you may want to think twice too.
