GT Racing 2 is a free download in the Play Store for devices running Android 2.3 or higher. You'll need just under a gigabyte of free storage to download it (not to mention a decent connection).

GT Racing is Gameloft's take on a racing simulator, a la Gran Turismo or Forza, as opposed to the more cartoony style of Asphalt.
