What do I do?

I don't know what I did wrong help

racecar.py
class RaceCar():
    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, laps, **kwargs):
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        self.laps = 0
        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)
    def run_lap(self, length):
        self.fuel_remaining = length * 0.125
        self.laps = laps + 1

The challenge wants you to set the laps argument in the __init__ as a keyword argument.

There is an error in your run_lap method, 2 actually.

def run_lap(self, length):
        self.fuel_remaining = length * 0.125 👈 # You should subtract (length*0.125) from fuel_remaining not compare the 
                                         # value
        self.laps = laps + 1  👈 # "laps" is not defined, "laps" has no reality here
