I have a real soft spot for Test Drive Unlimited 2 and the original Forza Horizon. Both have lots of music I generally wouldn't normally listen to outside of games but I love them.

I don't tend to listen to traditional licensed soundtracks anymore, i think i'm just getting old so i find the newer selections annoying, with that being said...

Need For Speed Underground 2 has a great soundtrack, Celebration Song is always a good time, also Mudvayne is a pretty bold choice by the devs and i appreciate it.
MX vs ATV Unleashed is one of my favourite games of all time and fulfills my need for nu metal, funnily enough Celebration Song is also in this game.
Gran Turismo 1, of course.
Gran Turismo 4, of course.
I don't remember the rest of the soundtrack, but this menu theme from Forza 3 reminds me of an amazing moment in gaming and makes me cry.
Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is a mouthful, but might have one of the best soundtracks of any game ever.
Those are the first ones i think of, but i have to give shoutouts to...
GRIP for wearing its inspirations on its face.
The Monster Truck Madness theme for existing, and making me sit up every time i hear that guitar riff appearing literally everywhere in the 90's early 00's.

Kinda stopped playing racing games about 20 years ago but I certainly do remember some great racing game soundtracks from back then.

Gran Turismo Ps1, Destruction Derby 1 and 2 PS1, Outrun Arcade, Crazy Taxi Arcade, Top Gear Snes, FZero Snes, Rock n Roll Racing Snes, Road Rash 2 Genesis

Spot on with the first Forza Horizon soundtrack. Subsequent games have had some bangers here and there, but they haven't really matched the quality of the series debut.

I'd also offer Burnout 3: Takedown as an all-time great racing soundtrack. A perfect mix of early 2000s pop rock, including the Ash song Orpheus which I love to this day.

Burnout 3: Takedown's soundtracks is okay IMO.
