The 1.2.0 version of TORCS is available for download.

I'd really like to thank all the people who have contributed to the project.
Special thanks to Christophe "Guions" Guionneau, Bernhard "Berniw" Wymann, Bernhard Kaindl, Henrik Enqvist, Gernot Galli and Jean-Christophe "skinner" Durieu for their help.

Please consult the download & installation instructions.

A very good robot tutorial and installation instructions are available on Bernhard Wymann's site in the torcs section.

And as usual, if you have problems or questions, send a mail to the [torcs-users] mailing list.
Note: the win32 archive have been fixed on the download servers.
