I dont see how that code would be easily ported to run nicely on a 68000 CPU only.
On the 68080 you could probably use AMMX to "replace" the DSP code, but otherwise its probably more of a rewrite than a port to get it running on a classic Amiga.
I never thought a direct port was possible; however a reimplementation (a better name for a rewrite in this case) can be definitely done using most of Indy 500 and F1 tricks; actually, since Winning Run is an arcade, the physics and car implementation does not need to be that accurate
