Some good online car racing games for kids include “Mario Racing” and “Electric Racing.” Both of these Flash-based games are available to play on arcade websites such as Car-racing-games.org and Gamesfreak.net.
“Mario Racing” is a fan-made game that takes its inspiration from Nintendo's popular “Super Mario Kart” series. Players use the keyboard to control their characters; the D key moves the racer forward, the A key makes him move in reverse and the W key makes him jump. Gamers run under question mark boxes to pick up items and press the space bar to use the items. The goal of the game is to beat the other racers to the finish line.
“Electric Racing” is a simple sprint to the finish with a twist. In this game, players can run into other cars to fill up their charge meters. As the charge meters fill up, their cars drive faster, making this one of the few racing games that actually rewards players for running into other racers and oncoming traffic. Players also use the computer keyboard to control their cars in “Electric Racing.” They can use the arrow keys or the W, A, S and D keys to drive their cars.
