Best Arcade-Style Racer

I'm looking for a great arcade-style racer. Nothing like GT Racing or the Gran Turismo series where actual physics come in to play. I'm looking for something more along the lines of a good version of Ridge Racer where I can just go race without worrying about too much realism. Anyone have any recommendations?

Asphalt 5 is the best arcade racer available for my money. Others include either of the Need For Speeds, Ferrari GT, Fastlane and Burning Tires...

Fast & Furious…

But I’d say Asphalt 5 and NFS:U.

Ridge Racer is my favorite arcade racer. Controls take a bit to get used to but I have fun with it.
