For some reason, I can't drive my car in the demo. When the game launches, the car automatically accelerates and brakes. I'm able to steer and operate other controls just fine. However, the acceleration/deceleration doesn't seem to be working properly. I haven't messed with the controls or program at all. I'm currently trying to drive with my keyboard. I already tried reinstalling the game, but the issue still appears. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

Do you have any kind of controller ( pad, joystick, wheel ) plug into USB port? If so unplug them, then see if KB works OK.

Or might be your KB, got a second KB to try?

That worked! I forgot I had my wheel plugged in to the back of my computer. It works fine now. Thanks so much!

I am having  this issue right now. I can turn the wheels but the car revs and spins the tires for a second then stops, then it just repeats. Unplugging all of my USB's didn't fix it.
I need halp!

UPDATE
I started the game in windowed mode, now I can control the car completely, even if I switch back to fullscreen. Weird, but I'll take it!
Enjoying it now :)
