you are not enclosing the color field inside the class. Plus, you are forgetting the semi-colon at the end of the field declaration.

just do

String color = "red";

thanks :)

Make sure to put all your code within the class:

class GoKart {
  //Code in here
}

You created the class GoKart . The class is like a blueprint and you have to store the information in it. Put String color = "red" in the class , because in your example you are outside of the class. And also you missed ; after declaring your variable. This is how it should look :

class GoKart { String color = "red"; }
