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

* "Johnny Kart Racing" in ''JohnnyTest'' centers around this. Notably, the episode starts off as a normal soapbox car race between Johnny and Dukey, snowballs into this trope as more and more racers enter, and the soapboxes are swapped for real cars. Also noteworthy is that a lampshade is hung DickDastardlyStopsToCheat.
