Not sure why this won't run. Any advice?

class RaceCar:

    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, laps, **kwargs):
        self.laps = 0
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining

        for attribute, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, attribute, value)

    def run_lap(self, length):
        self.fuel_remaining -= (length * 0.125)
        self.laps += 1

The instructions did not ask for "laps" to be an additional required argument for class creation. It would get ignored anyway.
