Virtual robotic car racing with Python and TORCS

A highly visual (racing videos) presentation showing the TORCS racing simulator, a Python implementation of a virtual robot car, and a covering of the basic AI algorithms required to make the wheels go round. AI, math, Python and eye candy. What could possibly go wrong... what indeed :)
