Any recommendations? Personal favourites? Interesting videos/streams you can link? Maybe that will interest me, and I can look into the game, the strats etc. Thanks.

If you aren't looking for kart racing games I would recommend either a rally game (such as the Colin McRae Rally series or WRC games) or Need for Speed. In the nfs series I would recommend Carbon or The Run. Both are quite simple to learn games.

Super Hang-On is very challenging!

Fast RMX, in case you already like F-Zero. It played very similarly to F-Zero GX for me casually, so it probably makes for a good speedgame as well.

Sonic R. Even if you don’t have access to a GC, the leaderboards are very diverse and allow everything from Emulation to PC. It has a fairly steep learning curve though.
