This is the "making of" video for the font.

<object width="400" height="225"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=5233789&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=00adef&fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=5233789&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=00adef&fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="400" height="225"></embed></object></p>

The font itself can be downloaded from here.

Very cool idea, and I like the font too. I wish I could drive backwards as well as the pro driver does :p

I think it sounds like a fun project! I find that highly conceptual fonts like these are sometimes difficult to implement in a design. Although I imagine all the difficulty came while creating the font, so maybe I'll have a fun time using it -- like driving a car around in a warehouse.

It's a great font and I really like the concept behind it. When you see the car driving and forming the characters it tells more about the lines and windings in this font. It shows how well-constructed this font is. Well done!
