* "[=EcksEcksEcksEcksian=] Cart Wars" in ''[[TabletopGame/DiscworldRoleplayingGame GURPS Discworld Also]]''. A low-tech parody of ''GURPS'' combined with the ''Film/MadMax'' sequence in ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'', and an experiment in seeing how far the ''GURPS Vehicles'' rules could be pushed before they broke. [[DevelopersForesight Pretty far, it turns out]].

* ''Film/TheGreatRace'' was inspired by and very loosely based on the real-life 1908 New York-to-Paris automobile race, and some of the more nonsensical aspects of the movie (crossing the Bering Strait on an ice floes, for instance) were actually considered for the actual race before common sense prevailed.

%%* ''Film/TheGumballRally'' (1976), a slapstick comedy.
