Now this might not count as an AKA but they are quite similar (made by the same guys).
Looks like the same game engine and even several parts of the graphics has been reused :)

Formula 1 Grand Prix (Microvalue/Tynesoft) - released in 1987:

Touring Car Racer (Byte Back) - released in 1992:

Ah Touring Car Racer, one of the best racing games ever. :lol:
Not sure its engine then actually dating back to 1987 could even be an excuse.
