NASCAR Racing 2003 Season is a follow-up of the previous edition NASCAR Racing 2002 Season. The new version sports even more realistic physics, improved graphics, and better computer AI (artificial intelligence) to provide a more realistic racing simulation all the way round. The game includes all the tracks, teams and sponsors represented on the 2003 NASCAR racing circuit. The NASCAR Racing 2003 Season Track Pack is an add-on that requires the full version of the game to work. It takes the game a step further by adding three "fantasy" tracks to the game that don't exist in real life. (Macworld)

The 2nd download is the updater to version 1.2.7

The 3rd download updates version 1.2.7 to 1.2.8 when you replace the game file "Nascar 2003" with the copy in this download.

The 4th download is the Track Pack add-on. This is automatically installed by the updater to version 1.2.7. So the Track pack download is not actually needed, but is here for completeness only.

Here is a collection of various NR2003 resources (tutorials, mods, tracks, car paint schemes, software). Unfortunately, it seems to be PC-centric: I know of at least one set of mods that only have PC updaters on that site, when the corresponding Mac updaters also exist.

How do you configure the controls on this using a keyboard? Had no luck assigning keys

Works well on a G5 iMac running Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard.

All right, my apologies, mrdav. The UnStuff was finally successful. Althought it's strange that the other sitx archive file can be decompressed with The Unarchiver anyway... I will try in Leopard another day, but I'm not doubt that it will works too.

--->Use another decompression file program?<---

Yes. This is a sitx archive so why not try using an OS X version of UnStuffit? Or just double click the archive in OS X like I did (I am in Snow Leopard)

May be I don't use the archive correctly ? When I attempt to decompress it with The Unarchiver, it fails with the message "the archive is incomplete" (error in reading the file). What should I do, so ? Use another decompression file program ?

I have just downloaded it to check and it unpacks OK to the game file "Nascar 2003" as announced in the description. Also I have previously tested that it works when the version 1.2.7 game file is replaced by this one.

It seems that the 3rd archive is incomplete. May it be replaced asap ? Thxs.
