A. Introduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's up people. It's me Aj again and I just got Tourist Trophy for PS2 and I
noticed that nobody wrote a FAQ for this game so I decided to dive right in 
and write this FAQ. In this guide I will go over the rewards that you will get
from the various races in the game, broken up into displacement class. For 
the Special Machine Festival I have included mystrategy for winning the 
races. To make the the game alot easier get your Super License before you do 
any races. With the super license you will be able to get all of the bikes in
the game including some of the best bikes in each class(both street and 
racing). I am very biased towards the faster races so I will go backwards in 
the game(doing the fastest races first). Read on and I hope you enjoy and 
find this useful!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before doing this series of races I recommend that you get the Yamaha TZ250
'03(This is the best bike in the class but it's really hard to get, I haven't
got it). If You can't get this then get the Yamaha TZR250SPR RacingModified 
'95(Racing) and the Yamaha TZR250 '85.

750 '05(Street), and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R RM '05. As usual these are the
strongest and best bikes in the class.

Before doing this series of races I recommend that you get the Suzuki GSX-R
1000 '05(Street) or the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R '05(Street) if you don't like 
the way the  GSX-R looks. The Ninja handles better but is a little slower. For

There are a couple of bikes that you should get before you do this series and
these are the suzuki GSX 1300R Hayabusa '05(Street) which has the most torque
in it's class, or the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R '00(Street) which has more Horse-
power and handles better than the GSX. For your racing bike you should get 
the BMW Motorrad K1200S RacingModified '05 because not only does this bike 
have the most horsepower(Higher top speed) it also has the highest Torque
(Best acceleration) and is relatively easy to handle.

3-Race Championship- Honda RC 162 '61

SPECIAL MACHINE FESTIVAL: Must win TT World Series to unlock. Recommended bike
7 Honda CBR1000 RRW Suzuka8H '05. I should warn you that no matter which bike 
you choose the competition will be evenly difficult. Since these races won't 
be determined by the strength of your bike I have put together a strategy for
eaceh race. Recommended bike- Spixon GSX-R 1000 Suzuka8H '05( I used this bike
because it had the fastest acceleration and good handling when setup right).

Twin Ring Motegi- Just like the Suzuka Circuit this course has a really 
efficient shortcut(you still have to race decently without falling to win).As
you can see from the outset this course has alot of big straightaways which 
are followed by sharp turns. Make sure that you go in slow and come out fast
for just about every turn in this course. The most important part of this 
course is right before you reach the finish line and you have that sharp 
series of turns. When you approach the turn go across the grass(make sure to
keep a straight line) slow down to about 65 or 70mph then turn right. Your
bike will be kind of unbalanced after this so make sure you keep control of 
the bike and don't fall. This is hard but if you do it properly you will cut
the lead by about 2 seconds. If you do if every lap you will have no problem
catching the leader and maintaing that lead.

Reward- Kawasaki ZX-12R Racing Modified '00

New York- Damn this couse is annoying!!! Seriously, since there are no short-
cuts on this course you will have to rely on your skill and also a very impo-
rtant point which is Slow in Fast Out. Since the staightaways are so long on
this course you will have to learn how to brake in advance because the corners
that come aftet the starightaways are sharp. Make sure that before you accel-
erate out of a turn you have a good line to achieve a high speed on the 
straightaway. The most important part of this course is the entire course. You
will have to race clean and fast to take the leader because he fights to hold
onto that lead. The way you handle the corners and the speed at which you come
out of them will determine whether you win this race or not. NOTE: You should
tweak your gears so your bike moves throught the first four gears fast. This
helps because it increases your acceleration out of those sharp turns.

Reward- Yamaha VMAX Racing Modified '05

Ricardo Tomo Circuit of Valencia- Being that there are no shortcuts on this
course I can only tell you to take most of the corners Slow in and Fast out.
This will allow you to catch up to the leader in about 6 or 7 laps. I did this
race about 30 times and the only time I won was when I had to race against the
following bikes: 1) Trick*Star...2)Moriwaki Motul...,3)7Honda CBR.... With
these bikes I won the race in my Srixon GSR with a 7 second lead. 

Reward- Suzuki GSX-R 1300R Hayabusa Special Color '05

Grand Valley Speedway- Since this race has no shortcuts you will have to rely
on your cornering skill to catch the leader. Since there are alot of corners
on this course it shouldn't be that hard. The best advice I cn give is SLOW IN
FAST OUT. Since the computer will be doing the opposite(Trying to keep a good
speed throughout) you will chip away at the lead. The Most important part of
this course is towards the end(getting repetitive isn't it) when you have 
those two turns before you approach the straighaway. Don't worry about going
in slow because when you get a good line out of the turn gun it. You will see
the lead cut by a second if done right(You can also look at the demo of the
course in the S license test). 

Reward- Suzuki GSX1100S Katana RM '05

Suzuka Circuit- This course is pretty simple. There aren't that many turns and
it has one of the best shortcuts in the game. Take most of turns in this 
course at a speed you fel comfortable with(this will vary depending on how
good you are). The most important part of this course is the corkscrew turn
right before the goal line. When you are approaching the turn make a right and
go across the grass then when you get a good line gun it. If this shortcut is
done right you will shave at least 2 seconds off the leaders time(in 3 laps I
had the lead).

Reward- Kawasaki Z1000 Racing Modified '05
