There is no TrackMania on Mac.
I don't think somebody manages to make one.

Unfortunately it's like impossible to just make one, if you're not the creator of the game.

It works with CrossOver Games, regular CrossOver and Wine (which is in fact all the same), you might give those programs a try, but don't expect too much.
You can find CrossOver here http://www.codeweavers.com/products/ and Wine here http://www.winehq.org/.

And of course bootcamp :). I can confirm Trackmania works great under XP.

TrackMania Nations Forever runs pretty damn well on Ubuntu via Wine. The graphics aren't fantastic but they are acceptable. I don't know how one would get a gamepad or wheel working with Wine though. If I can figure out how to get my 360 controller working with Wine, I won't need Windows.

btt: as steam moves its services to the mac now, many of the current pc-game developpers will follow, and this will surely put mac into the gaming business, finally^^
this might be a great opportunity to port tm2 for the mac as well, wouldn't it? :P
