Nintendo has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Greatest Driving Game Ever

I'm already expecting the winner to be GT4, but do you have any others from an age to throw into the mix 9note i said greatest, not best) or, in other words, the one that did the most to change the genre or move the bar

Given that criteria - GPL, easily

My personal fave atm though is NR2003 - near unbeatable netcode (42 drivers anyone?), effectively the next evolution of the GPL physics engine, nice graphics and great racing. The zenith so far IMO.

Er, see my avatar

Also...
- F355 Challenge in the arcades and on Dreamcast - unparalled realism for an 'arcade' game,

- The original Sega Rally for its awesome handling,

- Microprose Grand Prix 1 and 2 - very realistic for their day,

- Indycar Racing 2 - I still play it now! (mainly cos my computers too rubbish to run any other Indy games, but still...)

It's the first true Rally Sim. Bloody Brilliant IMO!

GPL

I was late to it, 2002ish I think but still play it pretty regularly now. Classic.

Also of note is Geoff Crammomds Microprose Formula One Grand Prix, back on the Amiga 500. In its day amazing.

Indeed GPL is a groundbreaker and really has not been beaten, Although GTR and GT Legends is definately hot on its heels.

Also another couple of earthmovers have to be GP3 (weather!) and NR2003.

I am thoroughly enjoying GTL at the moment.

As goes the general consensus, it has to be GPL for the physics. However I am really liking GTR which isn't far off.

An honourable mention has to be Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix 1. I remember playing it for the first time at the motorsport show at Earl's Court in 1992 and being absolutely amazed!
