I used to play a bunch of racing games before I quit racing. The TOCA series was really good and i'd imagine they're still good. The last one i played was the 2006 release. That game and GTR2 was another one of the more realistic racing games i've played. You probably already have a steering wheel with force feedback, but if not, to make these games actually realistic, you should get one. They're pretty expensive though.

I can't speak on any newer racing games like Assetto Corsa, PCARS, or iRacing, for example, that i heard were good

Assetto Corsa is probably the best out of the box racing sim you can buy right now. Tons of content, with a good variety of cars and tracks to race. The DLC content is nicely priced and gives you some cool cars to drive. The AI is good, force feedback is decent, and it has a growing selection of online mods of good quality and is basically the spiritual successor to rFactor 1.

rFactor 2 is in my opinion the best sim in terms of raw physics and car handling right now. They simulate some stuff that other sims come nowhere close to emulating, like day/night cycles and rain, chassis flex, tire flat spotting, tire temperature, and a dynamic racing line that changes as cars rubber in the track. However as an overall package it's pretty incomplete right now, with a random mish mash of different cars and tracks. Offline racing is the main way you'll play the game however, as online racing usually requires joining a league and the AI is the best simracing has to offer.

iRacing is the "go-to" sim for online racing. The monthly subscription and license system means the racing is clean for the most part and you don't find many people who will crash into you going into the first corner. Dirt oval racing is a newly added addition, with rallycross coming later sometime this year. However iRacing is also the most expensive, with the monthly subscription and the fact you have to buy individual cars and tracks. It's very expensive up front, but no other sim allows you to hop into a race and race against other drivers who aren't trying to smash into you at every opportunity.

I can second iRacing. If you want it for the racing rather than just doing laps it's definitely the way to go, the skill/safety rating system works really and if anyone tries to grief they get banned real quick. The realism is pretty good as well based on my experience comparing it to real life. The community is pretty good/helpful as well. The only real downside is that it is expensive, but you can earn some $ by just participating in the official series they run. Disclaimer I haven't had it for a few years but as long as the quality is at least equal to when I did it's still top tier.

Asetto Corsa is probably the most realistic simulator you'll find. But its a nightmare to play unless you have a wheel and pedals or are extremely experienced with a controller.
rFactor 1 & 2 hit the sweet spot between realism simulator and arcade, but they're pretty outdated and take modding and effort to really enjoy.

Your best bet is probably Project Cars. Modern, very large selection of real world tracks, good variety of cars and classes to race(karts, classic racing legends, touring, formula etc.). Doesn't feel to arcadey or too heavy a simulator - been playing it a ton recently and would recommend.

assetto corsa for track racing, dirt rally for rally/rallycross.

If you're a REALLY BIG nerd/racing fan you can pay a subscription to iracing.

If you like nascar but are too poor for iracing, consider nascar racing 2003. Ultra old but there is still active leagues (especially in a USA timezone)
