I’m a bit of a motor racing fan (though I admit it’s not the greenest of sports, though it is getting better). If you don’t fancy racing for real, why not try it online, where you can race a skateboard to a spaceship! By Suzanne Elvidge

Two thoughts – it seems to rain a lot, and I thought dolphins were nice…
In this game, the goal is initially to make two complete laps of the circuit within the time limit with your remote controlled car.
Further on, you get points for aerobatic stunts. Use left and right arrows to steer, up to accelerate and down to brake or reverse, and the space bar to brake hard. There are more games on the Lego website.
Use the arrow keys to steer, and hold down the shift key for the turbo (but when it runs out, you have to wait for it to refill).
Once I got the hang of the steering, it was quite fun, but I did spend a lot of time stuck at the side of the track!
The Paper Cup
Pick a racer and move your mouse to move him or her up and down – moving it left and right will slow you or speed you up. Avoid bumping into things, because they slow you down. Sweet and whimsical.

R resets you back on course. And then it all gets complicated with weapons, boosts, videos and photos. Oh, and you can pick your character and your course. It’s a demo, so I’m not sure how far on you can go, but it’s pretty cool.
Barnyard Jersey Joyride
Follow the orange arrow on the screen and use your arrow keys – up to go forward, left and right to steer, down to stop or reverse. Jump ramps to get extra time.
Bizarrely enough the cow that talks about milking and the chicken that talks about egg-laying both have male voices…
