Play OverviewPlay Overview

Golden Lap (2024) is a racing strategy game where you are Team Principal in a motor racing team working to win championships. You make key decisions, react to unpredictable events, and manage your budget across drivers, staff, cars and sponsors. It's unique because it combines big-picture strategic oversight with a stripped-back interface to make an approachable motorsport management game.

You play as the head of a Formula One team in charge of everything from big-headed drivers to sponsors with high expectations. You hire staff and drivers with personality traits that affect your team, like engineers with bad attitudes or partying drivers who show up tired on race day. The challenge is to manage your budget carefully and make tough decisions so you win when it counts.

As you progress you train your drivers and develop advanced car technology to give you an edge over the competition. You face high-pressure situations during each race like accidents on the track, or rebellious drivers diverging from the plans you set before the race. Some of your decisions don't affect your team until later in the season, so planning for things to go wrong is important.

The result is a game that clears away the clutter to leave an approachable and rich racing management game. It's welcoming to budding motorsport enthusiasts while still offering something for genre veterans through difficult decision-making.
