Nice work, but personally I think it'll be closer to the stuff in Wipeout.
I don't think they'll be tobacco advertising by 2010 but I couldn't think of anything original to put up.
But then, they advertise other crazy stuff in Futurama so Tobacco seems a soft issue. - they might have even cured all problems associated with Tobacco so there wouldn't be such a problem.
Anyway, whether they have or not all cars that have tobacco advertising carry health warnings at least.
They would look completley different by 3000 but I wanted them to deliberately resemble modern F1 cars - I guess.
Why they were helmets? Well, they would drive at huge speeds and crash massivly but I would make it that the main cockpit would be virtually indestructable - similar to the idea about the cockpits today. Plus it could be like, why do Fighter Pilots wear helmets - crash into a hill or get hit by a missile then they're as good as dead anyway, but they still wear helmets.
Know what I mean?
