I've finally got the basics for this car game up and running. I had a few problems with some of the maths i.e. when the car hits the centre block of the track. This is only an alpha release, I'm going to improve the tracks and add artificial cars to race.
This applet uses the 2D graphics classes, which are not part of most JVM ( Java Virtual Machines) so I've gotten some html from sun that let's you run this app, however it can require a download.
