TORCS (The Open Racing Car Simulator) is a highly portable multi platform car racing simulator. It allows you to drive in races against opponents simulated by the computer.
You can also develop your own computer-controlled driver (also called a robot) in C or C++.
TORCS is designed to enable pre-programmed AI drivers to race against one another, while allowing the user to control a vehicle using either a keyboard, mouse, or wheel input. The concept is derived from RARS (the Robot Auto Racing Simulator).
The game offers a wide variety of real-life high-performance vehicles as well as Formula 1 racers and off-road rally racers.
