Additional Comments

I remember playing this game on linux, there must be a way to get it to run. Trying with wine works fine for the installation, running the game works too, but as soon as you are entering an actual race, the game is permanently paused and you can only quit, but not un-pause the game. Keyboard input seems to not work when in the main menu (at least most of the time, sometimes it actually does work). But when you are in a race, at least the 'Q' key to quit works. Every other key could not be tested though.
