Try this:

1.Open terminal
2.cd to Carmageddon II dir
3.Now type in the terminal "wine carmageddon.exe" or wethever the name of
the exe is

If you were trying to run this game like this:

wine /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Programs/Carmageddon/carmageddon.exe

then it is normal that it couldn't locate files - because the exe assumed
that your current dir (that one you run wine from) is game dir.
