So, you 'swim' through various still images, and they zoom in as you get closer, then fade away when you pass them? I'm no game developer, but this seems like the amateur way of making a 'racing' game.

Sorry but it looks pretty bad. Next time, try something a bit simpler. Maybe a 2D game that isn't trying to look 3D would be nice.
