What is wrong? The class RaceCar is created!

I've defined the class "RaceCar"! Whay does it say that it can't find the class defined?

racecar.py
class RaceCar:

    def __init__(self, colour, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.colour = colour
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining

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

Hey, I see two things that need fixing. You have to spell color the way it is asking you to. Also, you have to make sure that the for loop is nested inside of the function. Like so,

class RaceCar:
    def __init__(self, color , fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color  = color 
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        for key, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self,key,value)

Let me know if you have questions.
