Unfortunately I'm unable to take any screen captures of the game. Every time I try using the two applications I have, the game drops to the task bar and I end up with a screen capture of my desktop. The three images below were taken from the game play video that I've linked to .
Lotus Racing:
In Brief:
Lotus Racing is a very basic racing game with only three race tracks, all basically the same track, two of the tracks are locked at the start of the game, but you can purchase them with the money you have at the start of the game. You can customise your vehicle by buying new paint jobs. The game gives you 99 thousand credits to start with that is also enough to buy the two locked lotus vehicles that are available in game. Each of the three vehicles differs in colour and has slightly different attributes such as their top speed, ability to acceleration, their handling and breaking efficiencies.

You can also select what type of race you want. These include the basic circuit race. You can set the number of laps as high as you want. I went up to 120 before stopping. There's also a lap knockout, time trials, speed trap, elimination and drift categories. You can also select up to five AI opponents to race against. and set the AI's difficulty to easy, medium hard or custom.

You can see a video of game play HERE
I found the vehicles felt like they were initially travelling through a thin syrup when starting a race; however, it still saw me well in front of the other vehicles I was racing against by the time I'd done half a lap. Handling is okay, but nothing like a AAA racing game where you can get realistic drifting etc.
For an arcade racing game its okay, but if you already have plenty of racing games I doubt you'd play this very often. Personally I doubt I'll ever boot it up again as I have so many decent racing games. (my favourites include the Flatout series, including the developers latest release Wreckfest, Crashdays (Steam recently released a revamped version of the original game, which is well worth checking out) as well as the WRC Rally games; many of which, you can pick up quite cheap during the regular sales.

If you're looking for a decent free racing game, you can find twelve of ''The Need for Speed'' games HERE ranging from The Need For Speed (1995) up to 2004's Need For Speed: Underground 2 and 2005's Need for Speed: Most Wanted (two of my favourites of that franchise). At the bottom of the page you can find a couple more interesting games on the same lines for example Need for Russia 4: Moscow Nights and if you follow the racing Genre button HERE, you'll find loads more racing games; for example, MTX Mototrax (2004), Hot Wheels: Stunt Track (2000), Road Wars (2000), 4x4 Evo (2000), F1 2000 (2000), Colin McRae Rally 4 (2004), Sega Rally Championship (1999), Road Rash (1996), Midtown Madness 2 (2000) and Sonic R (1997) to name just a few.. If you're looking for something upmarket, and have some spare cash (unlikely after the festive season :(), you can find lots of decent racing & rally games on Steam, uPlay and Origin.
Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 61 antimalware engines. You can see the scan HERE.

I was bored waiting for something in Win11 Beta Insider to finish, so I spent a few minutes Googling, since I was surprised WR didn't mention what I thought were the racing game titans, Gran Turismo and Forza. I'm not a gamer, so please forgive my naivete. Turns out those two seem to be the [overpriced?] entries into the racing sim world, with the real action coming from the following -- even real pro drivers use them for practice. So in case anyone wants to check them out: iRacing, rFactor, Assetto Corsa, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Project Cars, & Automobilista.

Hi Mike, I have so many racing games including all of the ones you mentioned. The main reason I didn't bother to mention them (including the GTA series as you can play that almost like a racing game) was I'm more into rally games at this time, which both the WRC and Flatout games incorporate. I always find after a short play through, that racing around a tarmac track like you do in the Assetto and Automobilista games becomes a little tedious, for me, so have always preferred more open world games like Project Cars (I have all three versions) and iRacing is a subscription based game that costs £12.99 per month to play. rFactor is expensive considering it's now 17 years old The newer version released in 2013 is okay, but also focuses mainly on track racing, though it does have some road racing included.

Whiterabbit-uk, OK, that makes sense. Thanks!

With parts of my brain shut down, I struggle a little bit figuring out the motivations behind gaming, especially as I watch my wife & sons, who wholeheartedly love it. I'd like to be able to point out games they might enjoy when they're on sale or available for free, but so far I have a zero success rate. :(

Whiterabbit-uk, I enjoy the original GRID before it was discontinued and a remake was made. Even though I don't have a gaming laptop I can still run it on Medium on the computer I bought July 2022 at 720p with an acceptable framerate.

Hi Mike, what sort of games do they like playing. I know the types of games my son likes, usually hard games like the Dark Souls Elden Ring and Doom or building games like Minecraft and Terraria. He also likes a hard platformer like Super Meat Boy, Celeste or Hollow Knight; from those I can find similar games by going to Google and asking for similar games to those listed or the top games in those categories (usually on Steam).

sailorbear510 aka Jason,

Hi Jason, Ah yes Grid. I remember when I first played the first in the series Race Driver: Grid back in 2009; it had an interesting mechanic where your first race would determine the difficulty later races would be set to. I found it a breath of fresh air at the time as my track skills, despite having played most racing games over the previous twenty years have never been great, much preferring a good rally game to track based games.

Today's game Lotus Racing is a fairly basic but simple racing game that has some difficulty to it. It attempts to add features like drifting and more realistic expectations of how a car should drive versus an arcade racer.

I found my car difficult to drive and had to replay the first track over and over again in order to get the handling of it. And yes I was drifting in my car, it was a neat little feature actually just found the car a little loose for my preference that's all :)

The games graphics are very basic but still manage to pass for a budget racing game. I actually enjoyed it for what it was despite some clunky physics and collision issues.

It may give you a challenge for a couple of hours but that's about it.

About racing games: When the Playstation 1 in the USA was nearing the end of it's lifecycle, Agetec released a lot of games localized from Japan from the Simple Series. One of those games was called "Racing" (Yes that's the actual name of it as "Simple" as it sounds)

You can find a video of gameplay here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UmE8X6ojtc

Although it too does suffer from clunky collision it deserves an honorable mention for being a decent $10 bargain bin racing game.
