    It's not similar, but let me be the first of many to recommend Mario Kart DS.

    Yeah, Mario Kart DS! It's such a fun game and super addictive!

    You could also try Race Driver: Create & Race if you like touring cars.

    All the recent Need For Speed games are available on the DS too.

    I was enjoying Need For Speed Pro Street until I had to do the drag racing, which is far too hard and has fiddly controls.

    I think you might be able to get a Burnout game on it too.

    Some others are :

    Ferrari Challenge
    Juiced 2
    Asphalt Urban GT
    Ridge Racer DS

    OK. thanks guys. I'm new to the DS, but my son has had one for a year or so, and has Mario Karts. Also got a PSP, and have the Burnout games on there. Will checkout the others mentioned, esp Ridge Racer, which i didn't know was available on the DS.

    Aside Mario Kart and Create & Race not a lot kicking about really, certainly not as much as on the PSP.

    As others have mentioned, Race Driver: C&R is certainly the closest thing you're going to find to a race sim(such as GT or PGR) on the DS. I have it but haven't played it much yet as it's pretty tough for me at least, will probably get into it a bit more when we take a nice long flight back to England in April though.

    MarioKart DS is great fun but of course a totally different game to the ones you mentioned in your original post, highly recommended though.

    You can play both Race Driver: C&R and MarioKart DS online by the way which certainly adds alot to the longevity of the games.
