This has been installed on my system comprising,

Athlon 2500XP, 1Gb Ram and Geforce 6200 256Mb Graphics card.

No problems so far. It installed without any fuss and runs without any errors or crashing.

I am a happy bunny!!

Update on my previous post.

I have now extensively tested Torcs and I have not encountered any problems.

I use the keyboard exclusively not a joystick and with this the response is excellent without any lag.

The screen updates also without any lag.

Allowing the app to run without a players car involved runs without any problems, sound is good, no interruptions to gameplay.

All-in-all, great stuff!
