These are some links to general driving simulation information and communities:

Open Source Driving Simulators and Racing Games

Some more driving simulators:

  • The Open Race Car Simulator (TORCS) - A car racing simulation focusing on AI racing and research. It can also be used as a ordinary car racing game too.
  • Trigger Rally - A fast-paced open source rally racing game.
  • Vamos Automotive Simulator - A automotive simulation framework with an emphasis on thorough physical modeling and good C++ design. It includes a real-time, first-person, 3D driving application.
  • Speed Dreams - A fork of the TORCS, aiming to implement exciting new features, cars, tracks and AI opponents to make a more enjoyable game for the player, as well as constantly improving visual and physics realism.
  • Super TuxCart - A free 3D kart racing game
  • Stunt Rally - A racing game that focuses on closed rally tracks with possible stunt elements (jumps, loops, pipes). It uses VDrift for car simulation.
