* ''VideoGame/WanganMidnight'' and its UpdatedRerelease ''WanganMidnight R'' have this for each major route, and disables the random traffic except on Wangan Line (as the course would be bore-inducingly easy otherwise). ''Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune'' does the same and includes Wangan in the "no traffic" rule, though in earlier games, the player can hold the View Change button while confirming a course to turn on traffic if they really want to.

This is a mode where most dangers and anything that may unfairly interact with your run are gone, giving you all the space to just wing it at your own accord, be it heading for the world record Lap, or Time of a full course.

Also for your convenience, there will be ghosts, see-through recordings of racers who have set quick times, further giving you the enthusiasm to beat them, or just to see how they did it, if you can keep up. Most racing games also have staff ghosts/records set by the developers themselves and are usually very tough to conquer, but watching how they race a track may give the player some new insight on how to tackle the tracks.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' series' various Arena modes combine this and BossRush, challenging you to defeat all the game's bosses, back-to-back, with limited recovery items, in the best time possible. Later handheld games include [=StreetPass=] functionality to share your best times with others, challenging them to beat your time.

When you've dug deep down into a RacingGame or something similar, you feel so almighty and professional that you just want a way to prove it, and what's a better way than to do a race as quickly as possible; though there is the problem at all those extra cars might prove to hinder that time a bit, and those power-ups won't help at all, so for your convenience, there is Time Trial, or alternatively, Time Attack.

* ''VideoGame/{{Need For Speed}}'' series has these. ''Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2'' features "Deliverys" which you avoid the police and get to the finish line. Time trials in the championship string are the same, just without the police chases.

** ''Videogame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'' has a mode which allows you to replay any level you have completed with a timer, with some of the [[CrateExpectations crates]] turned into Time Crates that stop the timer for a few seconds when broken. You are handed different coloured Time Relics depending on how quickly you finish. Thankfully, you get the ability to dash after beating the FinalBoss.

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' in all incarnations. Yes, you can play without having to worry about that [[ScrappyMechanic bloody blue shell]]. However, you are not entirely item less in this mode; you're given three speed mushrooms (which can be used at any point, but can't be replenished) so that you can practice with the best places to use them.

* Every stage in ''MischiefMakers'' is a Time Trial, complete with the [[RankInflation S grade]] for completing it in minimum time. One of the stages is an AutoScrollingLevel, and the highest rank is only by grabbing the star before it enters the screen.

* ''VideoGame/FZero'' naturally has a time trial mode, but ''F-Zero GX'' actually has this as the final story mission; race against a staff ghost on a track with no rails and beat it.

''F-Zero GX'' actually has this as the final story mission; race against a staff ghost on a track with no rails and beat it.it.
** In ''F-Zero AX'', each course has a target time. Beating the target time will add a stamp to your License Card. Each course also has a staff ghost to beat, which in practice is an even harder target time.
