Games Workshop has had Dark Future as a free download for several years now. Looks to be a good match for the Battlecars you folks have had available for a while. I find the idea of corporate sponsored raiders amusing, I wonder if Taco Bell is looking for Drivers.... ) The only real problem might be creating the road sections, but that does not seem insurmountable by any means.

It appears that on the straight the spaces on the grid are one vehicle in length, and half a vehicle wide. The curves are a bit more problematic. While I could not find colored board sections I did find some templates on Future Highways a Dark Future fan site.
It has been a goodly long time since last I played this game, but I remember it being a great deal of fun, and the first time I encountered the idea of 'rolling terrain', with the action staying near the middle of the table and road sections placed an removed before and behind the cars.
Anybody have a link for that download of Dark Future?
EDIT: nevermind, found it on GW's website under Specialist Games/Out of Print.
I'd also recommend Speed Rally (http://speedrally.net), but it's more Hot Wheels scale.
Actually, there is a link to the Dark Future PDF in the first post that I made for this topic. Links don't show up as clearly here as they do in some forums. GW has also bundled some of the supplements for the game into the download, including White Line Fever.

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
