A new Simcade racer is on the block! Hot Lap Racing invites you to explore different eras of motorsport when it launches on July 16th later this year.

Featuring the likes of the 90s Minardi M191 F1 car, the late 90s Renault Laguna British Touring Car, and the brand-new Peugeot 9x8 Le Mans car, Hot Lap Racing has got you covered for a variety of eras and racing disciplines from the 1960s all the way to the 2020s, with over 50 cars being present.

Here's Hot Lap Racing's release date trailer:

In addition to the 50+ cars present in the game, Hot Lap Racing will also feature 17 different tracks, with the different layouts on the tracks bringing the total to over 70! Much like the cars, some are licensed, real-life cars, whereas others are not, but are inspired by real-world equivalents.

Hot Lap Racing will feature a Campaign Mode, which will feature lessons to help racers perfect their performance as they set course records and establish themselves as formidable legends in the world of racing. Those new to racing will find everything they need to hone their skills while becoming a renowned force in any ride and on any track.

You can aim for the podium in individual categories, such as GT, Endurance, or single-seater rides, or you can burn rubber in the Free category where all car classes share the same track for the ultimate generation-spanning contest. There's also local racing for up to 4 players, and online racing for up to 12 players.

Hot Lap Racing is aiming for a July 16th, 2024 launch on Steam, and is planned to have full controller support. There's no word on Steam Deck compatibility yet, so it's hard to tell how the game might run on the Deck.
