Race Drivin' is a sequel to the driving simulator Hard Drivin'. Game play is similar to the first game. The player must complete laps around the race track before a timer expires. There are several checkpoints around the track which increase player's time as he passes.
Race Drivin' has three courses, one of which is the track from Hard Drivin'. There is a new super-stunt track, and an autocross course. The player also may choose from three types of cars.
An attempt at converting the game to the C64 was made by Zach Townsend, viewed from a perspective similar to those used in the replays of the original (which themselves were not in the C64 version). Although nearly completed, Domark did not consider this to be good enough to release.
