  1. I installed it on my Windows 11. The game opens fine. But when the race starts, it goes into hung state and opens a small window with nothing running on it.
    Can you help me.

  2. I have Windows 10 — and the overwhelming majority of ‘older’ games that I attempt to play absolutely will not function on my system — even when I attempt to ‘doctor-the-bejabbers’ out of them (graphics wrappers, patches, googling widescreen fixes, compatibility settings, etc. etc.).

    I’m way beyond ‘shocked’ that Oldgames has apparently done something to this game (added a graphics wrapper?) so that when I downloaded this game from their website — it immediately and flawlessly started up and has perfect functionality and widescreen resolutions on my Windows 10 system.

    Thanks Oldgamesdownload.
