Welcome to TORCS
This is the official site of TORCS, The Open Racing Car Simulator. TORCS is a highly portable multi

platform. It runs on Linux (all architectures, 32 and 64 bit, little and big endian), FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, MacOSX and Windows (32 and 64 bit). The source code of TORCS

If you need help have a look at the FAQ first, I added a new Researchers section. You can contact us on the torcs-users
mailing list (you need to subscribe to use it because of spam).
There are various sites on the Internet dedicated to TORCS with additional content (cars, tracks, documentation, patches, etc.),
you can find them in the "Related Sites" section in the menu on the left. If you are interested in racing visit the sites listed in the
If you need new tracks use the online track generator.
Have fun, Bernhard.

Championship 2014 Results and Videos
I wish you all and your families all the best for 2015, happy new year.
The TORCS Endurance World Championship 2014 is done, the winner is the DanDroid Team owned by Daniel Schellhammer. He took the crown for the third time in a row, congratulations.
There are videos covering all the races, if you spot funny/interesting/exciting moments just post the time index with a comment in the videos comment section, then I can later produce a "best of" video.

TORCS version 1.3.6 is available for download. First I would like to thank the contributors which helped with patches, bug reports and feedback, these are Wolf-Dieter Beelitz, David Savinkoff and Rick. Thank you all very much.
The most important changes in version 1.3.6 are new racing rules, new race manager configuration options (e.g. a fuel consumption factor from 0 to 5),
better handling of penalties, more input device adjustments in the player options GUI, historic car setup adjustments based on real world data, and as usual
bug fixes and code cleanups. To learn more about the new configuration options hit read more to review the full set of changes.
