INTRODUCTION:                  [SE1]


Hello, and welcome to my FAQ/Walkthrough of the racing game, Grid. This game
has received many positive reviews, and with good reason. It is a very
excellent game, from the graphics to the gameplay. In this guide, I will walk
you through the career mode of the game, along with tips and strategies to beat
them. There are many sections in this guide, so feel free to browse through
them for a better understanding of a certain aspect of the game. In this guide,
I will display some notes as we go along, to enforce what is being described. I
hope this guide helps you out with all your Grid needs, so  sit back, relax,
and smell that asphalt!








ABOUT THE GAME:                     [SE2]

The game features a very unique feature, the ability to rewind, or replay time
by up to 10 seconds. This feature can different methods of use, and is a great
way of making a turn you missed a few seconds ago. However, on certain
difficulties, there are limits to the times/ how you can use this feature. The
game is a mix between an arcade racing game, and a racing simulator. So you'll
feel quite at home if you've played games like Gran Turismo, Motorstorm, or
Forza Motorsport. The game is also pretty easy on the eyes, so getting immersed
in the game and its features is common. Well, the career mode is where you'll
be doing most of you unlocking, and rudimentary playing, so I will guide you
through the entire thing. It will take a while to complete it, and even longer
to master each vehicle class. But that is what I wrote this guide for. So,
let's get on with it, shall we?









CAREER MODE WALKTHROUGH:                 [SE3]


STARTING OUT
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now before you can get into the nitty gritty, the game will make you  pass a
brief tutorial. The tutorial section is in the career mode. You won't be able
to compete in any of the main events without first finishing this; but don't
worry, it isn't hard. In fact you can't lose. You will start a race
automatically, and are tasked with getting through the finishing line without
messing up your car. Take this time to familiarize yourself with the vehicle
you are driving, and the track that you are driving in. This tutorial is to
basically give you a feel for the game, so that you do not become overwhelmed
later on. The course you will be driving in is the San Francisco Grand Prix
circuit. Don't drive like a maniac, slow down when you get to parts that will
have you jump, and try to steer your car gently. Spinning a couple of times
isn't all that big of a deal, but after you get used to the track, you will be
done with the tutorial. After you have finished with that little driving school
session, you'll get three racing licenses. You have a license for each class.
To unlock better licenses for a class, you're gonna have to earn 80000 respect
points. Yup, that may take a while. In the game, you can purchase cars, but
since you don't have any, you won't be able to join any racing events. The
game's career mode will take a while to accomplish, so you have a lot of
unlocking, and race management to go. So for now, place your attention on
completing Driver Offers challenges. Now for these races, you have to get a
minimum of at least 60000 euros. You'll be done with this goal after about 4-5
events. Then the game will award you with your first car. It is a
FORD MUSTANG BOSS 302. Some other stuff'll get unlocked as well.

Now in career mode, you have to compete full racing seasons. You can decide
where and where you want to race( a racing season is about 8-10 races long).
Now here's how respect points, and money making works: In tournaments, you'll
get a lot of respect points when you win, but now, when you don't have many
vehicles, it will be very difficult. So to raise money, your best bet is doing
the driver offers challenges. However, your respect points won't be earned at
bulk over here. When you get enough money for new vehicles, you shouldn't spend
your time earning respect points here. When you finish a season, you can then
participate in Le Mans 24 Hours race. A good rule of thumb with the career mode
is that you should try and choose racing events the same class as you. This
will prevent being overwhelmed by very difficult races. BUT, you won't be able
to earn that much money. So try sticking to one class, and complete it all the
way through. You get better sponsorship offers this way, and can earn a steady
amount of cash as well.
Now as you continue through career mode, and this walk through, I will give you
tips on what cars to use, and how to tackle certain events. When selecting
cars, always buy new models, not used ones. Yeah they're cheaper, but they may
have problems with them, so stay away.


Now I'm gonna explain sponsorship offers. After a couple of events, you can
choose between sponsorship offers for your team. You can either get a major
sponsor, and they must pay you twice the amount of money they offered you in
the first place. Or you can have numerous minor sponsors that pay you what they
say they'll pay you. Now you must focus on completing their sponsor
requirements. Try to get sponsors that will pay you for than 100,000 euros or
those that are interested in you finishing in the top three. Ignore the other
sponsors that ask for 'no damage' or 'first place' requirements. The money
they'll offer you is based on the class you're racing in. So it would be best
to advance to the highest level of the race tree as soon as possible, that way,
you'll have no money woes. As for the 24 Hours Le Mans race, it would be best
to try winning all the race classes there, starting from the GT2 to the LMP1
(lowest class to highest class).

Now you may want to gain a fourth license, because that will allow you to start
managing your team. You will be able to hire a second driver, and thus, will be
able to participate in the constructor championships, to obtain twice that cash
from sponsors. But the AI drivers aren't all that good. You'll spend a ton of
cash for better skilled drivers, including starting bonuses and split winnings.
If you want to delve deep into team winnings, you may want to focus on you're
team's aggressiveness as well as their consistency.
Don't hire any teammates without first analyzing every aspect of them.
Doing so will bring about better outcomes.


CAREER MODE RACES
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now that you've been well equipped with the knowledge to succeed, let's get
onto the meat of this guide. The career mode. I will list each race, talk about
it and tell you what you have to do to succeed. Note that you can still do your
own management if you'd like, however, I will be giving you recommendations for
parts if you are stuck.

ARL ROOKIE BADGE TRNMT 1-USA
============================

CLASSIC MUSCLE-Lucas Oil Bay Bridge Trophy
TWO RACES
COURSES:San Francisco-Sprint Circuit and SF. Short circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR: Use the car you started off with, the Ford Mustang Boss
302.It's not too difficult, and most of the drivers are using the same vehicle.
So it's not like they'll have an advantage over you. The races aren't
difficult, so you can get a feel for the tracks. Attain a good start. Try your
best not to crash into any of the corners, or you will be left to eat the other
racers' dust. There is an extremely tight turn in the middle of the first race.
Start to slow down early on, because the car you have doesn't have the best
brakes. And don't burn any rubber.

For the second race, your start needs to be perfect as well. It is also pretty
easy, if not easier than the first, but you must get a good start at the
beginning. Cut through corners with no remorse, but try your best not to crash.
Refer to your screen to see when tight corners are on the horizon, and slow
down when you approach them. There are smooth edges in this course, so if you
breezed through the first race, you shouldn't have a problem here.
You can be able to catch the lead when you come close to the end of the first
lap, so you victory isn't too unreachable.



STOCK CAR-Michigan Demolition Derby
TWO RACES
COURSES:Detroit-Demolition Stadium Short;Detroit Demolition Stadium Long
RECOMMENDED CAR:You can't choose a car in this race. Everyone starts with a
JUPITER EAGLERAY MK5. By a new car here, if you have problems with the older
models. You are going to have to drive quite differently for this race. Your
main goal is to keep sliding while taking longer turns. By doing this, you can
maintain higher speeds, and won't crash into any of the surrounding walls.
There are two jumps to watch out for, because you can go out of control if you
don't pay attention. You must be very precise in making these jumps, but it is
also very easy to collide with the other vehicles. Stay close to the
surrounding perimeter of the track if you plan on overtaking them. This track
can be tricky given that you don't have a choice in which car you are using.

For the second race, there will be a lot of crashes happening all around you.
Just make sure those crashes don't include you. When you get to the first
corner, be careful not to get caught up in crashes, and you will take the lead.
Playing it smart throughout the whole race will allow you to keep that lead,
and eventually beat the race. There are some tires waiting for you in the last
corner, so don't cut it.
1
1
PRO TUNED-Cobra Pro Tuned Tour
TWO RACES
COURSE:Long Beach-Street Circuit; San Francisco-Sprint Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:FORD MUSTANG GT-R CONCEPT. It is a very good car to use for
this race. In fact, it is probably the best. You may buy a DODGE VIPER at this
time, but it is costly. If you are low on dough, purchase the CHEVROLET CAMARO
CONCEPT or NISSAN 350Z. To get a better outcome of this race, you could think
about practicing some of the races in Race Day mode. Familiarize yourself with
the Long Beach Circuit outside of career mode. The cars in this cup are pretty
easy to handle, and so you won't have abnormal speeding and breaking times to
memorize. I wouldn't worry too much about the finish in the first race, because
it is hard. If you lose your place when you start of, you have an opportunity
to regain it when you reach the first corner. Keep to the left and hit the
other cars hard. You could crash and burn this way, but if not, you'll make it
up about 3-4 places. Hitting and damaging your can a little bit won't be all
that devastating, because only heavy crashes can actually cause problems with
your car's handling. Cut through most of the simple corners ahead of you, and
you should be closing in on any who happen to be in front of you. There will be
a long turn that you must be weary of, glance at the map to see where it lies.
There are some tires on the left wall, so try to keep a steady distance from
the wall, but not too far off. You will then have to go through some fast
sections, and some sharp turns, but nothing too horrifying.

The second race should be familiar, considering it is the place that you were
at when you were trying to win the Classic Muscle Cup. Because of that, winning
here should be a fairly simple task.

ARL ROOKIE BADGE TRNMT II-USA
=============================

TOURING CARS-Quikshift DC Challenge
TWO RACES
COURSE:Washington-Park Circuit, Washington-Sprint Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:You won't be able to choose your own car here, instead, you
must use a CHEVROLET LACETTI. The two races in this cup are cakewalks. So as
soon as this tournament becomes available, you may want to consider selecting
it as soon as possible. In this challenge, all of the cars will be moving
particularly slow, so use this opportunity to make all of your corners
correctly. There aren't too many things in the two tracks to memorize, so
again, you should have no problem with either race. You will be able to take
the lead in the first race, probably even in your first lap. There are two
corner that are displayed in your map, which are the best points to do so. The
other vehicles tend to stay on the correct line, but just to be safe, you
should still cut through corners. Just make sure you watch out for fast turns,
and you generally won't lose control of your car in this race.

The second race, through still fairly easy, is a little more difficult. The
first long turn is the most tricky one, so take note of that. Try not to make
your car move to the left, because you'll end up in a massive crash. Use the
close by right turn to start overtaking your opponents, and brake at the last
seconds. Do not go onto the grass and gravel traps. Doing so will result in you
losing control of your car.

PRO MUSCLE-Dodge Motor City Cup
TWO RACES
COURSES:Dodge Motor City Cup
RECOMMENDED CAR: You can now buy two vehicles from Dodge. However, you should
instead, purchase a VIPER; it is very fast, and can be used in some races later
on in the game. Now, if you really want to succeed, you should take time out of
your career mode schedule to practice how to use a viper. The car is very hard
to control, and so it is strongly recommended that you do so. You have to be
excruciatingly careful when turning slower corners. Watch the gas, because the
car can easily clash into the barriers. Now there are two totally new tracks
waiting you in this tournament, and so you don't know what you're up against.
You must start the first race perfectly, or it can come back to bite you later
on. Yo have to be very careful not to bump into the other cars around you, or
you'll lose control of your car. Try your best to get close to the race
leaders. There are some tight corners next to the tunnel that you will come
across. The other cars are probably going to slow down when they get there. So
see this as an opportunity to overtake who ever is around you.

The last track is also one that you have not experienced before. You're gonna
have to go through several tight turns here. DO NOT slide the car, or you will
lose a lot of time when you hit something. You will have a final right turn to
do. It is not difficult, but you do have to maintain a proper speed. Get your
lead to stay in place, and you should be done with this track.

CLUB GT-Direzza Club Trophy
TWO RACES
COURSES:San Francisco-Sprint Circuit;San Francisco-Sprint Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR: Nope, can't choose your own car again. Everyone in the race
will be using TVR TUSCAN CHALLENGE cars in this event. Now, you'll be racing on
the same track, but this time you are going to go in two different directions.
Now in the first race, there is a wide margin of space in which you can perform
overtaking maneuvers. So it should be pretty easy. Now, the car you're in has a
low suspension, so you can easily lose control. This will happen when you try
to cut corners, so don't do so too much.

For the second race, again, a perfect start is crucial. This will allow you to
avoid being overtaken by the other racers, and possible take a few positions
ahead. Again, watch out for the very sharp turn. From the angle you are doing
the race in, the corners are, thankfully, much easier than the last time,
except for the last chicanes. Don't cut corners too aggressively, and you will
win this track in no time.


CLASSIC MUSCLE-HEAD 2 HEAD
Now before you even think participating in this battle, you should first win
all six tournaments from this group. This is a special kind of race. You
probably could have told from the race title. Here you must will  a duel. This
means that you are racing against one driver. But don't worry, this race is
going to be a cake walk, or even....a pie walk. You earn a lot of money here,
so selecting this duel as it comes available is a good choice. Here you will
play at Long Beach. This means that taking the first corner is very important.
If you overtake your opponent here, he probably won't be able to gain it back
throughout the whole race. Make sure to watch out for the fast turns, because
the vehicle that you are diving is a slider. But still, all things considered,
you should still be able to complete this race without difficulty.

ARL PRO BAGDE TRNMTS 1-USA
==========================

PRO MUSCLE-Ebay Motors Muscle Cup
THREE RACES
COURSE:San Francisco-Short Circuit B;Washington-Sprint Circuit;Long Beach-
Sprint Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR: Now from the group, you should probably have the VIPER. Don't
use it.  Use the FORD MUSTANG GT-R CONCEPT. It handles very well, and can do
pretty well in the races to come. The first track of the trio of races to come,
is one that you've gone trough quite a few times before already. Therefore, you
should already know all the hard corners. Be very careful when cutting through
some of the turns, because the window for mistake is a very small one. Good
thing that the MUSTANG can do some aggressive driving; losing control shouldn't
be something to worry about.

The second track is also familiar. After you've started, try to get an early
lead. This may take some practice, but can help you avoid some crashes. Now
place all your efforts on closing the gap between you, and those who are in the
top positions. Now the fast corners are dangerous, solely because making a
mistake is not an option. Doing so can cause you to be on the outside of the
track. Cut through corners wherever possible, and make your way to the finish
line.

This track is pretty easy. You have to complete eight lap, but the laps are
fairly short. There are two tight turns in this track, but that's about the
only thin in this track that can pose as an obstacle. The first is near the
start, and the second is in about 13 seconds. However, taking a quick glance at
your map will let you know that you can cut the corner there. Stay away from
the barriers and tire walls, and you're home free.

GT1-Ferodo S7 Speed Series
THREE RACES
COURSES: Long Beach-Street Circuit;Detroit-Grand Prix Circuit;Washington-Grand
Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR: There's only one available car to use here, the SALEEN. It
isn't too heavy on the wallet, but you can use it many times in the game from
here on out. So when you have enough cash, get one. The first track is nothing
new, so you'll know what to do when the time comes. Cut through the first
corner to get a few places, and then wait for your chance to overtake the other
drivers. The car you have is pretty standard to drive, but still: watch out for
unexpected corners.

Now this track is pretty hard. You can't make any mistakes, and on top of that,
you haven't been here before. At the start, the path is very narrow, so you
must be careful. Dodge tire walls like the plague. The middle section has a few
tight turns, but the final section will give you a moment's reprieve. There are
some slow corners here, but are also overtaking opportunities. Keep a look out
for two chicane that you'll come across. The second one will permit you go dash
off at full speed, but the barriers should still be avoided.

This track is pretty hard too, but nothing you can't handle with some smart
moves. It is a track that was meant for slower cars than the one you're using.
So here, you'll have less time to perform rudimentary actions. Now for the
first few corners, you're gonna have to go at full speed, so watch out. Don't
rely on cutting them all the time, because there's a barrier waiting for you
here. The longer turns must also be approached with caution, so use tight turns
to get ahead of the competition.  You're going to have to tackle the final
corners at high speeds if you intend on winning.

PEN WHEEL- Simpson F3 Shield
THREE RACES
COURSES: Long Beach-Street Circuit;Long Beach-Classic Circuit;Long Beach-
Classic Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR: You won't be allowed to choose a vehicle here, since this is a
Formula 3 Tournament. You, and everyone else, is using a DALLARA FORMULA 3
vehicle. Now since all three of these races is on Long Beach, the tracks are
going to be similar, right? WRONG! You're gonna have to tackle each race with
varying angles. I suggest that before attempting this tournament, you get out
of career mode, and spend some time mastering Formula 3 vehicles. They have
high grips, meaning taking tight corners at high speeds. But where the turns
are slow, the car will become unstable. So take a while to get used to this
car's learning curve. When you start the race, use the turns to gt ahead of the
cars around you. Don't try cutting the corners, because you can lose control.

This track isn't too hard to commit to memory, just use the tight corners (like
before) to get ahead of the competition. You're gonna have to go through some
tunnel sections, so it's best to brake when you get to those areas. You are
going to have to be more exacting in the final section of the lap, but it's
doable, and so the race will soon be over.

The third race is harder still. You are going to have to go through corners in
the opposite direction, which is pretty hard on its own. The first corner needs
to be approached with caution, because it may leave you prone to bumping into
somebody. The tunnels are very narrow ahead, and you may even have to turn
while you are still in the tunnel. The middle has some fast corners, and a
tight turn follows these. Get through really carefully, and avoid the tires
that are just aching to mess you up. Don't get too cocky near the finish, and
you should be all set.

get more detailed from here
on in, I will refer to

you to check your screen
=========================


Drift Battle Ė Ecko Unltd US Drift BattleNumber of races: 3
COURSES: Long Beach Ė Classic Circuit B; Washington Ė Sprint Circuit B; Long
Beach Ė Classic Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR: I guess you may be surprised a little bit by the fact that
youíll be allowed to choose between many different vehicles. If you think
youíre an experienced driver, consider purchasing one of more expensive cars.
Mazda RX-7 FD3S should do the trick, however itís difficult to drive. I think
that you should consider buying Toyota Corolla GT-S which is the cheapest car
in the lot. Itís not the fastest, but it handles great and youíll be able to
pull off some cool maneuvers with it.
All three races are going to be quite challenging, mostly because youíll be
racing on closed circuits which werenít built to host these types of events.
Itíll make your drifting more difficult, because each contact with the barriers
will purge your current account. The event youíre about to participate in is a
combination of drift and a standard race. This means youíll have to stay
somewhere in the lead, because otherwise youíll earn less points for successful
drifting. I would recommend that you aim for a third or a fourth spot. Donít
try overtaking the race leader at all costs. Instead, focus on performing good
drifts. You should also take your time once the race has started, because it
always gets crowded near the first corner and you wonít be able to slide the
car properly if other vehicles are blocking your path.
The first race will allow you to perform a good slide once youíve reached the
first corner (screen). You should be able to earn a lot of points here, as long
as you stay away from the right wall. Remember to get as close to metal poles
as possible, because then youíll be rewarded with large bonuses. Maintaining a
high multiplier is equally important, so you canít take too long between the
drifts. Watch out inside the tunnels, because itís very easy to hit something
there. Later on youíll come across more open areas, however you should try
maintaining a perfect line, especially if you want to get closer to the poles.
Additionally, you could lose control over your vehicle as a result of straying
off the main track.

The second race in the series seems to be even harder. Donít focus on the first
corner, because itís very tricky and youíd have to restart the race many times
to achieve something here. Instead, approach the left turn properly (screen).
Try scoring points mostly for long drifts. There are a lot of mild corners
here, so it shouldnít be a problem. You should also pay attention to other
drivers. Prevent too many of them from overtaking you, because you wonít be
able to score many points from the back of the grid. Avoid hitting tire walls.
Thankfully, you wonít have to worry about the grass, because leaving the track
for a second or two doesnít necessarily mean that the race is over. You will
have to finish three laps, so donít use up all the flashbacks right away.

The third race takes place in the same location youíve visited earlier, however
the biggest difference is that youíre moving the other way. As youíve probably
noticed, you will have to learn all the corners from the beginning. Focus
mostly on longer bends and tight turns. Just as before, youíll also have to be
extremely careful inside both tunnels (screen). You can earn a lot of points
here, but you also may lose them if you push too much. The final corner is
easier to get past from this side, so you wonít have to worry about it.

PRESTIGE-US Supercar Challenge
THREE RACES
COURSES:San Francisco Ė Sprint Circuit; Long Beach Ė Street Circuit; Detroit
Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:Zonda R seems like a much better choice. Not only does this car
accelerate faster than the Koenigsegg but itís also easier to drive. Koenigsegg
is only better at achieving large speeds, however itís very easy to spin the
car by mistake. Theoretically it might seem that these races should be fairly
easy, however both cars in this class are very fast and itíll make your run a
lot harder. You wonít be allowed to cut through the corners and youíll have to
maintain high speeds while going through some mild curves. The first race will
require you to be very precise, especially in the middle of the track. Maintain
a perfect racing line in order to avoid any crashes. Watch out for the right
turn. Also, slow down near the last chicane (screen), because both cars are
wide and you would have some problems fitting in. Slowing down a little is
always better than crashing and damaging your car.

The second race seems to be the easiest one of all three. As you probably
remember, itís important to find yourself on the inside while taking the first
turn. This should allow you to advance a few places. Next up, focus on going
through the slowest section without any crashes. Once this is done, speed up
and start chasing after the current leader. You should be able to win this
race, as long as youíre fast enough in the second section of the track.
The third race is quite simple, however you must take under consideration that
youíre driving a fast car which is also unstable at lower speeds. Watch out for
the first section of the track. Thankfully, other players will also slow down
here, so youíll have plenty of opportunities to overtake them. Watch out for
the chicanes, especially the one thatís been displayed on the screen. Use tight
turns to your advantage, however slow down once youíve arrived at the final two
chicanes.
ARL PRO BADGE TNMT III-USA
==========================

GT1-Goodyear Continental GT
THREE RACES
COURSES:Washington Ė Park Circuit B; Detroit Ė Grand Prix Circuit; San
Francisco Ė Short Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:There are many different vehicles for you to choose from and
some of them even cost two million euros. I suspect that you still own a Saleen
S7R and thatís the car you should consider using in this event. Itís fast
enough to stay close to other vehicles and you wonít have any major problems
controlling it. Cutting through the corners will also be possible in this car.
The first race of the tournament can be won without any major problems. Use the
fact that there are two slow corners on the track. Cutting through them will
allow you to get closer to the current leaders. The same goes with other tight
turns, like the ones on the screen (screen). Other drivers will be slowing down
here and thatís your chance to overtake them. The final section of the lap will
require you to go through a mild curve at a very high speed. You must prevent
the vehicle from getting too close to the left wall, especially since there are
also some tires over there. Other than that, you will probably secure your lead
long before this race has ended.
The second race is going to be very similar to one of the challenges from the
previous tournament. Thankfully, Saleen is much easier to drive than Zonda or
Koenigsegg. Use this to your advantage and maintain higher speeds while going
through some difficult corners. You will have to turn right at some point of
the race. This new section of the lap will lead you to a tight turn. Go through
this corner at a very low speed. Secure your lead by finishing second part of
the lap without any major crashes.
The third race is going to be the easiest one of all three. Like Iíve already
said, cutting through corners in a Saleen is not a problem. You wonít have to
go through any tight turns. Instead, youíll be dealing with a fast chicane
(screen). Itís very easy to crash into barriers here, so Iíd strongly recommend
slowing down the vehicle a little. Otherwise you would probably have to use up
one of available flashbacks, especially if this is your first run on this
track.
PRO MUSCLE Ė Head 2 Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all six tournaments
from this group!
Sadly, winning this race is going to be more difficult than it was in the first
race. The main problem is that youíll have to use a Dodge Viper and this car is
very difficult to drive. Additionally, youíll be dealing with a narrow track,
so you wonít be allowed to make any mistakes. Winning here is possible only if
youíve practiced driving a Viper a lot and if youíre familiar with the entire
track.
Obviously the first part of the race is going to be crucial to your success.
The start must be perfect, so you canít afford any wheel spin. Your opponent
will probably take an early lead and your job will be to stay behind him as
close as possible (screen). You will have to go through several fast corners.
Prevent the car from sliding and avoid hitting the tires. Donít push too hard
or you may end up restarting this event.
You will start encountering difficult corners very soon and theyíre your only
chance of taking the lead. I would recommend that you wait for one of few tight
turns to make a move (screen). Make sure that youíre cutting through the
corners, so youíll be very close to your opponent before overtaking him. Once
this is done, calm down and focus only on securing the lead. This means you
canít make any mistakes and you will have to maintain higher speeds while going
through mild curves. Thankfully, you should know the track by now, so youíll
have less problems defending your first place.

ARL NATIONAL BADGE TNMTS 1-USA
==============================





COURSES: Long Beach Ė Street Circuit B; San Francisco Ė Grand Prix Circuit;
Detroit Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Washington Ė Grand Prix Circuit.      RECOMMENDED
CAR:As youíve probably noticed, you will have to purchase a Koenigsegg CCGT in
order to be able to participate in this event. You donít have this car in your
garage, so youíll have to spend some of your earned money on it. The vehicle
costs more than 2 million.This new Koenigsegg is very similiar to the other
model which youíve probably driven before. Sadly, this means youíll have some
major problems staying on the track. CCGT is very difficult to drive and itís
also wide, so itís not going to be easy to get through some of the sharper
turns. It would be a good idea to practice these races before deciding to enter
the event.
The first race of this tournament is going to be quite challenging, mostly
because youíll be visiting a narrow track. This becomes an issue especially
when you try to overtake someone. As a result, you will have to make sure that
your start is perfect, so you wonít any places here. Itís going to get easier
once youíve reached a long straight section of the track, however you canít
make any sudden moves or youíll lose control over your vehicle. Be careful Ė
youíll be dealing with sharp turns later on during the course of the lap. The
final section of the track seems to be the most difficult one, because youíll
be dealing with some very narrow corners here. You will also have to slow down
once youíve reached one of final chicanes (screen). Otherwise you would have
ended up crashing into a tire wall. Avoid this at all costs. There are four
laps here, so youíll have a lot of opportunities to take the lead or at least
to get closer to the podium.
The action of the second race takes places on the streets of San Francisco. You
probably know this track from the demo version of the game and youíve also been
here at the start of your career. Donít forget that youíre driving a very fast
car, so you canít make any major mistakes. Be careful near the hill area
(screen), especially when trying to land the car after each successful jump.
Avoid using the side movement keys or you may end up sliding towards the
barrier. It would be good idea to slow down here, especially if youíve taken an
early lead or if youíre close enough to the leader. The final section of the
track consists of long straight roads, however you must slow down near a fast
chicane.

The third race of this championship seems to be the easiest one. Make sure that
youíve started properly and youíll gain a few places right away. Try overtaking
your opponents near tight corners, because thatís where theyíll slow down,
allowing you to make a move. Watch out for some of the mild curves and when
going through fast chicanes.
The action of the fourth race takes place on the track youíve visited before
(during the head to head challenge). Watch out near the start, because there
are a lot of difficult corners out here. Avoid crashing into other vehicles,
because nothing good will come out of it. Use some of the sharper turns to get
closer to other cars (screen) and prevent the vehicle from sliding too much
while going through faster curves. Once youíve taken the lead, focus only on
defending your first place, instead of pulling off good lap times.
DRIFT GP-ROTORA Capitol Drift
THREE RACES
COURSES:Washington Ė Sprint Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You wonít have to race against other drivers directly, so
ignore some of the fastest cars of this group. I would recommend that you test
all available vehicles in the Race Day mode, so youíll know which one is
easiest for you to handle. Toyota models are excellent, however you can also
consider using a Dodge or a Nissan.
Thankfully, this is an easier drifting event than the previous US drift race.
The biggest difference is that youíll be the only car on the track, so you
wonít have to pay attention to other players. You can focus only on pulling off
good drifts in order to acquire as many points as possible. Also, you wonít
have to be in a lot of hurry, however youíll earn the largest number of points
for drifting at higher speeds. There are three races for you to win Ė a
quarterfinal, a semi-final and the final race. Each time youíll have to earn
more points than your current opponent. Sadly, you wonít find out exactly how
many itís going to be right away. If youíre playing on Serious difficulty,
youíll probably have to earn at least a few hundred thousand points. Obviously
the third race is going to be the most difficult one, because youíll be going
against the champion. Nevertheless, winning all three trials should be fairly
easy.
As youíve probably noticed, this is an easy track, mostly because itís very
wide and you wonít have to worry about hitting the barriers all the time. You
will be allowed to slide on the grass, however itís going to be more difficult
to steer the car in such conditions. Watch out only for sharper turns, mostly
because you will come across tire walls out there. You should have any major
problems increasing your multiplier and thatíll be the key to your success.
Also, donít forget to find yourself near metal poles in order to receive other
bonuses.
ARL NATIONAL BADGE 2
====================



PROTOTYPE:Tag Prototype Series
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Long Beach Ė Street Circuit; Detroit Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Washington
Grand Prix Circuit; Long Beach Ė Classic Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You arenít given a choice here, because all the drivers are
using prototype vehicles. Youíll be sitting behind the wheel of a Ford Doran
JE4. This is a very expensive car (it costs more than 4 million), however you
should have enough money to buy it. Thankfully, the car youíre about to use in
all four races of this tournament is very easy to drive. You should also notice
that the tires offer a lot of grip, so you wonít have to worry about sliding or
slowing down before sharper corners. You will only have to be careful while
driving slower, because itís easy to create a dangerous wheelspin situation.
Once youíve familiarized yourself with the vehicle, you should know how to
avoid these problems. Winning all four races should be easy, even if youíre
playing on a higher difficulty level.
The action of the first race takes place in Long Beach. Just as before, you
should focus primarily on having a good start which should be followed by an
overtaking maneuver near the first corner. Doing this will allow you to advance
a few places. Be careful while going through some of the nearby corners
(screen). I wouldnít recommend cutting through them too aggressively, because
thereís a chance of losing control over your vehicle. The second part of the
lap is much easier. Use the fact that your vehicle is easy to handle. Maintain
higher speeds and avoid making major mistakes.
The second race is in Detroit and you shouldnít have ANY problems winning it.
This is the most common version of this track, so Iím sure that you know the
corners by now. Just as before, you should consider acting aggressively after
the start, especially since your car wonít slide too much. Be careful when
youíre going through the slowest section of the track. The second part of the
lap is much faster and it should allow you to increase your lead over the guy
in the second place.
The action of the third race takes place in Washington, so you shouldnít be
surprised by the fact that winning here isnít going to be a simple thing. Itís
very important to fight your way from the back of the grid, so you might want
to consider restarting the event a couple of times to get a better spot. Focus
mostly on maintaining a good pace throughout the entire race. You canít allow
other drivers to extend their lead. Be on a look out for sharper turns to
overtake them. Also, avoid making major mistakes, because you would have to use
a flashback or restart the race.
The fourth race of the series is quite relaxing, however obviously you wonít be
allowed to make any major mistakes. The first part of the lap requires you to
go through several tight corners. This should allow you to get closer to the
leader of the race. Donít forget to turn left in order to cut through one of
the slower corners (screen). Slow down once youíre close to the tunnels,
because itís easy to hit a barrier there.

GT1-Head 2 Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all three
tournaments from this group!
Before you decide to participate in this head to head challenge, you should
consider making some preparations. Take your time to familiarize yourself with
an Aston Martin DBR9, because this is the vehicle you will have to use during
this race. DBR9 is an unusual car, because it is very responsive. Itís a good
thing when youíre traveling at higher speeds, but it can become a problem while
going through sharp turns and there are many of those in Detroit.
You should be able to take the lead early during the course of this event.
Consider attacking your opponent near the second chicane (screen). Donít worry
if you lose the lead later on, because youíll always have a chance to win it
back. Go through the tunnel carefully, as well as through other slow corners.
Use the mini map to locate the second car and block your opponent whenever itís
possible.
The middle sector is by far the easiest one. You will only have to go through
several tight corners. Other than that, you will be dealing with mild curves
and long straight sections. You should stay in the lead here, as long as you
donít make any mistakes. Be careful near the end of the lap. Youíll encounter a
well-known slow section here (screen). Prevent the vehicle from sliding or
crashing into the barriers. I would recommend staying on an ideal racing line,
because your opponent will have a hard time taking the lead away from you. The
last corner is quite simple, so it should secure your win in this race.

EURO LICENSE 1-EUROPE
=====================

CLASSIC MUSCLE:Blistein Festival Milano
TWO RACES
COURSES:Castello Circuit; Milan Ė Castello Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:You can choose between two muscle-cars. Ford Mustang Boss 302
will allow you to reach higher speeds, however Cuda seems like a better choice.
This car is better at taking corners which will allow you to catch up to other
vehicles much faster.
Both races take place on the exact same track, however youíll be going in two
different directions. The first race seems to be a little easier. Maintain high
speed once youíve started and while youíre going through a long curve. You
canít get too close to the barriers here, because itís very easy to crash by
mistake. Choose the roundabout section for a place to make a move. The second
part of the lap will also present you with a lot of opportunities to take the
lead in the race. Youíve probably noticed that you can cut through some of
these corners. Speed up once youíre close to the finish, especially since other
drivers will do the same thing.
The second race will also require you to through a large curve which is located
near the finish line. As long as you maintain higher speeds, you should be safe
here and you wonít have to worry about other drivers extending their lead. Try
overtaking them near some of the sharper turns, especially since youíll be
allowed to cut through most of these corners (screen). Watch out near the
finish and go through the roundabout without smashing into any barriers.

TOURING CARS-BMW Challenge
TWO RACES
COURSES:Nurburgring Ė Sprint Circuit; Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:You wonít be allowed to choose a vehicle for this race, but
itís not a problem, because BMW 320SI is the best car in this class.
Both races are quite easy to win, however you should spend some extra time in
the Race Day mode to familiarize yourself with both versions of the Nurburgring
track. Prevent other cars from taking an early lead by having a perfect start.
Approach the first turn from the inside and cut through the grass in order to
overtake a couple of vehicles. Now you will have to deal with a few fast
corners (screen). The key to success here is to approach them at a correct
speed, so this is why itís very important to know the track.
The second part of the lap starts with a long straight section of the road. You
will have to maintain a very high speed here for obvious reasons. Be careful,
though. You will come across a tight chicane very soon (screen). You must use
the brakes early or youíll crash into the tire wall. Also, I wouldnít recommend
cutting through this corner, because thereís a possibility of losing control
over your car. You should be able to take the lead on the second lap. Once this
is done, defend yourselves against attacks from other drivers until youíve
reached the finish line.

The second track is very similar to the first one, especially in the beginning.
My opinion is that this race is easier to win. There are a lot of sharp corners
on the track, so youíll have some opportunities to overtake other vehicles
(screen). Be careful once youíre close enough to the chicane. If you donít make
any major mistakes, you should be able to take the lead even faster than in the
previous race.

EURO R LICENSE TNMTS II-EUROPE
===============================

OPEN WHEEL:BMC Formula 1000
2 RACES
COURSE:Donington Park Ė National Circuit; Nurburgring Ė Sprint Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:All the competitors are using Formula 1000 vehicles - JRC
FJ1000. Thankfully, theyíre much cheaper than Formula 3 cars, because one
vehicle costs about 37000 euro. As a result, you should consider winning this
cup as soon as possible.

Formula 1000 races are easier than Formula 3 events which youíve probably came
across in the past (one of these events is in the USA). The main difference is
that youíll be dealing with slower vehicles and it wonít be such a problem to
maintain a good racing line while taking some difficult corners.

The first track of the championship has appeared in the career mode before, as
well as in many other racing games. As a result, you should know this track
very well, however this doesnít mean you can take it easy. Thereís a very
difficult corner near the start line. Use the brakes wisely and avoid leaving
the asphalt road. Now you will have to deal with a large number of fast
corners. Itís an excellent opportunity to overtake other vehicles. Watch out
for two tight corners which are located in the middle section of the track
(screen). You canít make a mistake here, because there are gravel traps all
over the place.

You should end up heading towards the finish line. Maintain maximum speed in
this area (which is about 225km/h). The final chicane is a very difficult one
(screen). You will have to go throught it without making even a smallest
mistake. Cross the finish line and maintain your lead on the following laps. It
shouldnít be a problem, especially since computer drives arenít too aggressive
here.

The second circuit of the championship has appeared in your schedule many times
before, however you will have to take under consideration that your car is
capable of going through corners at a higher speed. Donít try cutting through
the corners, because thereís a high probability of losing control over your
vehicle.

PRO TUNED-DUNLOP Spa Challenge
1 RACE
COURSE:Spa Francorchamps Ė Sportscar Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You wonít be allowed to choose a vehicle for this race. All the
contestants are using Nissan Skyline GT-R Z-Tune vehicles, so youíll have to
purchase one before proceeding with the race.

This is a very unusual tournament, because you will have to complete only one
race and itís not even long. I guess you might suspect that youíll have to
familiarize yourself with this track in order to secure your win. You will also
have to remember that your vehicle can be tricky to drive. Skyline tends to
slide a lot and it has some poor brakes. As a result, you will have to be extra
careful while going through some of the slower sections of Spa.

The first part of the lap is very easy and you shouldnít encounter any problems
here. Your objective will be to climb a small hill at a maximum speed (screen).
You wonít have to use the brakes and you may even move a little to the left,
because thereís some asphalt there as well. Keep pushing until youíve reached a
new set of corners. The key to success here is to maintain an ideal racing
line. Use sharper turns to get ahead of the competition.

The middle section of the track will require you to deal with some faster
corners. You must know exactly how fast you can go here, so itís very important
to practice finishing this race before proceeding with this career event.
Prevent other cars from increasing the lead. Make sure to maintain higher
speeds when such an opportunity presents itself. Skyline isnít too fast, so
itís crucial that you start accelerating whenever itís possible. Slow down once
youíve reached the final chicane (screen). You canít be going too fast here or
youíll end up crashing into a tire wall. The last corner is a tight turn which
leads directly to the finish line. Youíve got two options here Ė you can slow
down to a minimum speed or you can go wider, because you wonít end up on the
grass.

CLUB GT-Firestone TVR Showdown
2 RACES
COURSES:Donington Park Ė National Circuit; Donington Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will have to use a TVR during this event. Itís a TVR Tuscan
Challenge. Iím sure that you own one of these vehicles by now. If not, purchase
it right away, because youíre going to need it to win several other events.
Both races take place in Donington Park. The first race should be familiar to
you, because youíve already been here during a Formula 1000 event. Sadly, TVR
is much harder to drive, especially at taking corners. You will have to be very
careful in order to prevent the car from sliding. I think that youíll get a
hang of it after a few races. Knowing the track is equally important. I would
recommend accelerating in the middle section, because thatís where you can
overtake other cars. Watch out for sharper turns, especially for the one
pointed out on the screen. The final section of the lap is a difficult chicane.
You canít afford to make any mistakes here, so consider slowing down if you
canít go through this section faster.

The second race will start the same way as the first one did. As a result, you
should consider overtaking as many vehicles as possible. Youíll see the
differences once youíre near the finish line. You will have to cross a new
chicane by going left. Itís going to be followed by two very sharp turns. The
first turn is easy to spot, however the second one is very tricky. You will
have to start turning the car before youíve even seen it (screen). Use the mini
map if this one of your first runs. You canít wait for the last second, because
you would end up outside the track.

EURO R LICENSE TNMTS III-EUROPE
===============================

TOURING CARS-Goodrich Trophy
TWO RACES
COURSES:Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Istanbul Park Ė Intermediate
Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:Once again, you wonít be allowed to choose a vehicle on your
own. All the competitors are using a Chevrolet Lacetti from the Touring Cars
category. You should consider purchasing this car, because you might need it in
other tournaments. Also, itís very cheap. Both races of the tournament take
place in Istanbul Park, however youíll be dealing with different variations of
this track. I guess you wonít have any problems achieving two wins here,
however understanding the track is an important matter, mostly because youíll
have to go through some of the corners at an exact speed. If youíll drive
slowly, you wonít have the chance to catch up to other cars and if youíll drive
too fast, youíll end up in a gravel trap.

I would strongly recommend having a perfect start, so you wonít end up being
overtaken by other vehicles. You should be able to reach the first corner very
soon. Despite what you might think, itís not too sharp, so you donít have to
slow down your car too much. Prevent other vehicles from moving away from you.
Focus on some of the upcoming turns by going through them at a maximum possible
speed. This should allow you to close the gap to the leader of the race. The
second part of the lap consists of a large number of sharper corners (screen).
You should consider performing a few overtaking maneuvers here. Cutting through
some of the corners will also become a possibility.

You will come across four mild curves. DONíT use the brakes, because itís
possible to get through them at a maximum speed. All you have to do is to stick
to the inside and you wonít end up somewhere outside the track. The final
section of the lap will require you to deal with several sharp turns. The first
one will force you to turn left. Also, there are three hairpins near the finish
line (screen). This is your final opportunity to take the leadership away from
your competitors. Be careful not too cut through these corners too much,
because youíll hit a tire wall or youíll lose control over your vehicle.

The second track has a very similar start to the first one, so you should use
this as an opportunity to overtake other vehicles. Maintain a close distance to
them and wait for the right moment to perform an overtaking maneuver. You will
have to turn left somewhere in the middle of the track (screen). Thankfully,
itís a simple maneuver, so you wonít have to slow down. Focus on maintaining an
ideal racing line and you should take the lead even faster than in the previous
race.

CLUB GT-HEAD 2 HEAD
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all six tournaments
from this group. Sadly, itís going to be a difficult head to head challenge,
mostly because youíll be forced to use a TVR Tuscan Challenge. As you probably
remember, this vehicle is very difficult to drive, especially here where itís
very narrow. Also, you will have to be racing in Milan and this is probably
your first visit to this variation of the track. You will have to restart this
event at least a few times to familiarize yourself with the layout of the track
and the capabilities of your vehicle.

I would strongly recommend that you begin racing by having a perfect start.
Prevent the wheels from spinning too much and focus on maintaining a small
distance to your opponent, because heíll probably take the lead right away. You
should be able to reach a small roundabout very soon. Slow down slightly, so
you wonít hit your opponent, but you canít let him extend his lead. I would
recommend overtaking him near the cathedral (screen), especially since thereís
a sharp turn here. You should be successful, as long as you play this out
aggressively.

I guess you wonít be surprised if I tell you that you should focus primarily on
defending your first place against the attacks of your competitor. Enter a
small tunnel. Use the brakes, because the next left turn is very tricky. Youíll
hit a tire wall here if you drive too fast. Some of the upcoming chicanes are
corners are equally difficult. Watch out for a tight right turn (screen). You
canít cut through it (tire wall) and you canít go too wide (barrier). You
should be able to reach a new corner very soon. Cut through the corner
aggressively, because there arenít any penalties for such an action. The next
left turn is very tricky. You MUST maintain a perfect racing line here. Donít
cut through it or youíll lose control over your vehicle (thereís a large bump
here). The final part of the lap will require you to achieve maximum speed and
hold it. Block your competitor if he gets too close. Avoiding the barriers at
all costs is also very important here.

EURO B LICENSE TNMTS 1-EUROPE
ENDURANCE-La Mans Series (GT2)
3 RACES
COURSES:Spa Francorchamps Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix
Circuit; Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will be allowed to choose between two GT2 class vehicles.
Spyker C8 Spyder is a little faster, however itís very difficult to drive and
it has poor brakes. As a result, you should consider purchasing an Esperante
which is a much better choice. Youíll notice the difference between these cars
very soon, because the first track will require you to brake a lot.

Iím sure that youíre familiar with all three tracks of this tournament, however
you will have to take under account the fact that both cars from this group are
very difficult to drive. Panoz and Spyker tend to slide a lot and theyíre very
unstable at higher speeds. I would recommend that you practice driving a Panoz
in the Race Day mode, so you wonít be surprised by how bad it really is once
youíve entered this event. You should also know that vehicles from all four
classes will participate in this tournament. Obviously you will have to win in
the GT2 class. This means you will have to finish at least eleventh (if none of
the faster vehicles suffers from a crash). You could try overtaking cars from
the GT1 class, however itís not necessary. Focus only on winning your group.

The first race should allow you to take an early lead, however only if you went
through the first chicane at a maximum speed. Watch out while going through
tight corners and chicanes, because itís very easy to spin a car. Donít try
cutting through these corners. Thereís a possibility of losing control over
your vehicle, so you shouldnít risk losing your lead. Instead, drive a little
slower and block your opponents. The middle section of the track is by far the
most difficult one. You will come across two fast corners here (screen).
Maintain a perfect racing line and prevent other vehicles from taking the lead
away from you. Once this is done, focus on moving as fast as possible. Brake
hard once youíve reached the chicane. Thankfully, the finish line is located
ahead of the hairpin, so you wonít have to worry about it as well.

The Istanbul Park track seems to be the easiest one of all three, however this
doesnít mean you shouldnít be careful. Some of the faster corners of the track
will require you to slide a little. Doing this will prevent other drivers from
extending their lead. Thankfully, youíll have a lot of opportunities to
overtake them. Watch out near the end, especially while going through three
hairpins. Itís very easy to spin a car out there and you canít allow that to
happen.

The third race seems to be a little harder than the second one, however you
should also be able to pull off a win here as well. Just as before, the key to
success is to go through some of the corners at a higher speed (screen). You
will have to prevent the car from sliding too much at the same time. The final
part of the lap will require you to go through a well-known chicane. Maintain a
perfect racing line here, so you wonít have to worry about losing control over
your car.

OPEN WHEEL-Mintex European F3
THREE RACES
COURSE:Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Donington Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit;
Spa Francorchamps Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:All the competitors are using Formula 3 cars (Dallara Formula
3), so you wonít be allowed to choose a vehicle on your own. Sadly, acquiring a
Formula 3 car means spending more than 300000 in cash.

Youíve probably dealt with a Formula 3 race event before (while trying to
complete the US branch of the career tree). If not, you should picture them as
a much faster version of Formula 1000 races. Youíll still be dealing with a
massively increased grip, however you will have to be extremely careful at
lower speeds, especially while going through tight corners and hairpins.
Spinning a Formula 3 in such conditions is a very easy thing to do. Like Iíve
already said, these cars are much faster, so youíll also have less time to
react to whatís happening on the track. Consider spending some time in the Race
Day mode before proceeding with this tournament.

Iím sure that youíre familiar with all three tracks of the tournament, however
you will have to change your driving style a lot in order to prevail. The first
race should begin with a perfect start. This will allow you to overtake a few
vehicles near the first corner. Now you will have to focus on going through
some of the faster corners of the track. Donít make any mistakes. Try
overtaking other vehicles near sharper corners, however avoid hitting them at
all costs. Not only you would have damaged your car, but you would also end up
outside the track. You may have some problems with four mild curves (screen).
Itís possible to go through them at a maximum speed, however you would have to
be extremely precise and you wouldnít be allowed to hesitate. The final part of
the lap consists of a large number of sharp corners, so this is your final
chance to overtake other drivers.

The second race is by far the easiest one, mostly because other drivers tend to
slow down a lot. This occurs for the first time after the start, once youíve
reached the first set of corners. Use this opportunity to get ahead of the
competition. Be careful while going through slower corners and stay on the
track.

The third race is going to be more difficult, however winning here is possible
as well. Slow down before the first turn, because you canít afford damaging
your vehicle. Head over to the hill and go through the chicane at a full speed.
You can also consider moving to the left here in order to overtake other
vehicles. The middle section of the track has to be done faster than usual. You
canít use the brakes too often. Watch out for the first fast corner (screen).
You can approach it at a nearly full speed. Also, donít forget about a tight
chicane which can be found near the finish line. Maintain a perfect racing line
there in order to avoid unnecessary spins.

GT1-Aston vs Corvette Challenge
THREE RACES
COURSES:Donington Park Ė National Circuit B; Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit
B; Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:The title of this event says it all. You will be forced to
choose between two brands. Aston Martin has only one model in the game Ė DBR9.
As for Chevrolet, you will be allowed to choose between two GT1 class vehicles
Ė C5-R and C6-R. I would recommend choosing an Aston Martin, however only if
youíre comfortable with this car. If you canít drive it properly, you should
buy a Chevy Corvette C5-R instead. Ignore the C6-R model, because itís not as
good as its predecessor, especially when it comes to performance.

The most important thing about this tournament is that youíll have to be moving
in a different direction on all three tracks. Sadly, this means youíll have to
spend some time learning how to take the corners, especially since AI drivers
are going to be very fast here. Also, you wonít be allowed to make any
mistakes.

The first race is going to begin a with a very difficult chicane. You will have
to avoid straying off the main track, because your car will immediately lose
grip on the grass. You should be aggressive here on the first lap, however
focus on precision on the following three laps. Once youíve dealt with the
first section of the track, youíll come across a new difficult corner (screen).
Slow down here slightly, so youíll avoid any problems. Focus on overtaking
other cars, because the next section is simple. Watch out near the finish line,
because the last corner is tricky.

Action of the second race is going to take place on Nurburgring circuit. Like
Iíve already said, youíll be going in an opposite direction. Try overtaking at
least a few cars near the start line. After that, wait for other opportunities
to present themselves. Youíll have plenty of chances to advance, as long as you
donít make any mistakes. Be careful near the finish line, because there are
some difficult corners out there (screen). You shouldnít be in a lot of hurry.
Instead, focus on maintaining a good racing line. Thankfully, other drivers
will also slow down here, so you donít have to worry about them getting too
close.

The final third race in the tournament is Istanbul Park. I would recommend that
you focus on having a very good start, so you wonít have any problems
overtaking a few cars near the hairpins (screen). You should be able to advance
a lot of places here. Be careful once youíre on a straight road. There are some
very fast corners here and you must prevent the car from sliding, because
losing control here is equal to losing an entire race. You will have to deal
with four mild curves. Slow down only a bit, so you wonít end up outside the
track. The final part of the lap will require you to deal with a large number
of tight corners, but this is good news Ė youíll have more opportunities to
take the lead away from AI controlled players. Watch out only for the final
turn and you should be able to secure your win.

TOURING CARS-Euro Touring Car Series
THREE RACES
COURSES:Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Jarama Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Istanbul
Park Ė Intermediate Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will finally be allowed to choose between two vehicles of
the Touring Cars category. Chevrolet Lacetti is a better choice for less
experienced players. I would strongly recommend choosing a BMW 320SI which is
much faster than the Chevy. Youíll also be able to drive it aggressively, as
long as you donít mind sliding here and there. :-)

The first track is the main version of the Nurburgring circuit. Youíve been
here a few times, so you should know it by now. Try overtaking as many vehicles
in the first sector as possible. It shouldnít be a problem, since there are a
lot of tight corners out here. Now you must focus on driving flawlessly. Donít
forget to control the back of your vehicle, so you wonít spin and lose your
advantage over the rest of the grid. The final part of the lap is a well-known
chicane. Brake early and maintain a perfect racing line while going through the
chicane.

As for the second track in the series, you probably know it from the demo
version of the game and youíve been using the exact same car, so it should be
extremely easy to win. First of all, you will be allowed to cut through most of
the corners and hairpins, because there are special sections for these types of
actions. Watch out near the second hairpin (screen). The final section of the
track consists of two difficult corners. Stay on the inside, so you wonít end
up dangerously close to a gravel trap.

Istanbul track should also be familiar to you, so Iíll only focus on some of
the more important things. Just as in previous races, you should have a great
start followed by an aggressive first corner (screen). Try winning a few places
here. As for the rest of the track, donít forget to turn left at some point of
the race. Also, you wonít be allowed to slow down too much. The final section
are the three hairpins. Use them to get closer to the leader of the race.

EURO B LICENSE TNMTS III-EUROPE
===============================

ENDURANCE:La Mans Series (GT1)
THREE RACES
COURSES:Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Spa Franchorchamps Ė Grand Prix
Circuit; Donington Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will be allowed to choose between several vehicles of the
GT1 category. I would recommend choosing a Saleen S7R. Youíve probably used
this car before, so you should know how fast it is and how easy to handle. You
wonít have to worry about taking corners in this car and youíll be allowed to
focus more on overtaking other vehicles.

All three races of this tournament are fairly simple. Just as before, you will
be dealing with vehicles from all four classes, so donít worry that you wonít
be allowed to get to the first place. Your objective will be to finish at least
eighth. You will be allowed to chase faster vehicles, but only in Spa youíll be
capable of overtaking them. I wouldnít recommend doing that, because that could
affect your style of driving. Itís better to stick with the GT1 class, because
you wonít receive any rewards for finishing the race ahead of vehicles from a
higher class.

The first race is Istanbul Park and itís definitely the easiest one. You should
focus on having a good start, so youíll take the lead in your class right away.
The only difficult section are the four mild curves in the middle of the track
(screen). Sadly, you will have to slow down here, because otherwise youíll end
up outside the track. You would find some asphalt there, but youíd still lose a
few seconds and probably a few places in your class.

The Spa circuit wonít surprise you with anything new. Just as before, focus on
having a great start. You must also take the first hairpin properly, so youíll
end up ahead of your main rivals. Once this is done, focus only on not making
any major mistakes. You should also remember to drive faster in the middle
section, so you wonít give other drivers a chance of closing the gap.

The third race will also allow you to take an early lead. Avoid hitting other
vehicles at all costs, because thereís a lot of grass around you and you
wouldnít be able to return to the track as fast as you would have imagined. I
would also recommend slowing down before the first tight corner in the middle
section (screen). I can tell from my own experience that itís very easy to make
a mistake there by going too fast.

PRESTIGE-OMEX SUPERCAR Series
THREE RACES
COURSES:Istanbul Park Ė Intermediate Circuit; Nurburgring Ė Sprint Circuit;
Donington Park Ė National Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:This time youíll be allowed to choose between two cars. As you
probably remember, Zonda R is much easier to drive, however Koenigsegg can go a
lot faster. If youíre skilled enough, consider choosing Koenigsegg. Otherwise
take Zonda for a spin. Youíve been to the first track many times in the past,
so I guess I should only focus on the differences from having a new car. Try
attacking other drivers from the inside once youíve reached the first corner.
Donít risk too much, because you wonít be able to win the race in a damaged
vehicle. Choose sharper corners and hairpins for places to overtake your
rivals. Donít forget that you will have to turn left in order to explore a new
section of the track (screen). It would be wise to slow down here, because
thereís a possbiility of ending up on the grass. Watch out for the three
hairpins near the finish, however Iím sure that you know how to approach these
corners safely by now.

The second track is one of the shorter versions of Nurburgring. Start off by
cutting through the first corner, however prevent the car from sliding. You
should consider going through some of the faster corners in a controllable
slide (screen), so you wonít allow your competitors to increase their lead. A
second hairpin is also a great place to perform overtaking maneuvers, however
prevent the car from leaving the track. Watch out for the chicane at the end!

The third track seems to be the easiest all three, even despite the fact that
youíll be moving in a different direction. Cut through the first corner
aggressively, but only on the first lap. You will have to be careful here later
on during the course of the race, when you have a lot to lose. Watch out for
some difficult corners in the middle of the track. Thankfully, youíll be able
to drive faster later on. Slam on the brakes only near the final left corner.

TOURING CARS-Head 2Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all six tournaments
from this group. Thankfully, this duel is going to be very easy, so you
shouldnít have any problems finishing it ahead of the second car. You will be
using a BMW 320SI which is easy to handle on this track. The most important
thing youíll have to worry about is to maintain higher speeds throughout the
entire track. Also, you wonít be allowed to make any mistakes, because youíll
lose your lead instantly.

I guess you wonít be surprised to see your opponent take the lead. Brake at the
last second and attack him from the inside near the first hairpin (screen). If
youíre unsuccessful, try repeating this maneuver with two other hairpins. Once
youíve taken the lead, switch your attention to what the other player is doing
and block him whenever he tries to attack you. You must be driving flawlessly
at the same time, so itís important that youíre familiar with the surroundings.
You should be extremely careful near two tight corners. Maintain a perfect
racing line here, so you wonít end up spinning the car. The same goes with four
mild curves in the middle of the track. You must prevent your vehicle from
sliding too much. The final section of the track consists of a few sharp turns
(screen). Cut through most of them without losing too much speed. Observe your
rival and prevent him from taking the lead. Itís not a major issue, because
even if he does, youíll still be able to win it back. Watch out near the finish
line Ė you canít make any mistakes there.

EURO A LICENSE TNMNTS 1-EUROPE
==============================

PROTOTYPE-Virgin Mobile Endurance Classic
1 Race
COURSE:La Mans-Circuit de la Sarthe 1968
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will be allowed to choose between two prototypes. Nissan
R390 goes a lot faster, but it has poor acceleration and grip values, so itís
not a good choice. Iíd strongly recommend purchasing a Mazda (787B model),
because itís going to be much easier to win the event with this car. This is
going to be a very unusual event, mostly because of the track. Youíll be given
an opportunity to race on one of many variations of the famous Le Mans circuit.
Iím sure that you know this track from the 24 Hours Le Mans race, however this
time youíll be presented with a much shorter route. Nevertheless, reaching the
finish line is going to take you A LOT of time, so you shouldnít use all the
available flashbacks right away.

Despite the fact that itís going to be a long race, you should focus on having
a good start. Youíll have to reach a top of a small hill (screen). After that,
youíll go through a very difficult chicane. I wouldnít recommend straying off
the perfect line, because there are gravel traps all over the place. Carefully
go through several other corners. You could consider overtaking a few cars
here, however itís important not to end up outside the track.

Now you will have to deal with a very long straight section of the road which
is even longer than in the 24-hour race. Itís very important to maintain
maximum speed throughout this entire sector, because a smallest mistake would
mean trouble. You will also have to avoid other vehicles, if there are any
around you (screen). Mazdaís maximum speed is about 415 km/h and thatís how
fact you must be going. Thereís a mild curve near the end. Stay on the asphalt
road and avoid using the orange sections, because you would start losing speed.

You should be able to reach an EXTREMELY difficult corner very soon (screen).
You will have to use the brakes early, so you wonít end up outside the track.
Also, you wonít be allowed to cut through this corner, because thereís a tire
wall here. Donít worry if you go through the corner slowly, because itís always
better than using a flashback or trying to get back on the track. The final
part of the race will require you to go through some fast chicanes. Avoid tire
walls there as well.

ENDURANCE-La Mans Series (LMP2)
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Donington Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit;
Spa Francorchamps Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Jarama Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will have to choose between two LMP2 class vehicle. Lola
B05/40 is a much better car. Despite itís similar in price to Courage C65, it
accelerates faster, so itíll be easier to catch up to other vehicles. All four
races of this tournament are quite challenging, mostly because both LMP2 class
vehicles arenít too easy to handle. Lola becomes unstable while going through
some slower corners and it gets even worse with tight hairpins. You will have
to be extremely careful in order to prevent any unwanted slides from happening.
Youíre starting in the LMP2 class, so youíll have to end this race in fourth.
Ignore the top three, especially since you wonít even able to pursue these
vehicles. Focus only on winning in your class.

The first race of the series is Donington Park. Itís one of the most difficult
circuits, mostly because you will have to adjust your driving style to what the
car is capable of doing. This becomes frustrating in the early stages of the
race, because you will have to go through the first corner (screen) without any
spins. Controlling the car in fast corners of this track is also challenging.
The final part of the lap is the most difficult one. You will have to go
through a chicane, as well as two hairpins (screen). Watch out for the second
hairpin, because you wonít see it until itís too late. Use the mini map, so
youíll know when to start turning. Control the situation on two other laps. If
you donít make any mistakes, you should be able to hold off to your fourth
place (first in the class).

The second track of the series is Nurburgring. Thankfully, itís going to get a
lot easier here. Use the fact that thereís a very tight turn at the start of
the race. Overtake as many vehicles here as possible, however watch out not to
hit your teammate. Be careful while approaching faster corners. The car tends
to stray off from the ideal racing line. One of the most difficult corners
(screen) will require you to turn right without you actually seeing where
youíre heading. Practice going through this corner, so it wonít jeopardize your
race near the end. The final part of the lap consists of a chicane and the
final turn, but you should know about it by now.

The third race in the tournament is on the Spa circuit. You will have to show
everyone here that youíve got nerves made of steel. Many of the corners will
require you to go at a nearly maximum speed, without slowing down. You should
be able to take the lead after the first hairpin. Head on towards the hill
(screen). If you donít want to risk too much, consider moving to the left,
however you must watch out for the barrier. The middle section of the track
requires you to keep pushing. Prevent the car from sliding and block your
opponents whenever they try to overtake you.

The final fourth race is on the Jarama circuit. Ignore the fact that you may
know this track very well. You will have to make a lot of adjustments,
including the grip and the performance of your vehicle. Brake earlier before
the first hairpin. You canít be moving too fast or youíll end up near a gravel
trap. You will be able to go through other corners faster, however you must
watch out whenever you come across a sharper turn. The same goes with the
second hairpin. Be careful there as well. As for the final two corners
(screen), cut through them at a slightly lower speed.


EURO A LICENSE TNMTS II-EUROPE
==============================

ENDURANCE-La Mans Series (LMP1)
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Donington Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit;
Spa Francorchamps Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Jarama Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:I guess you might be a little surprised by the fact that there
are four vehicles in the LMP1 class. Thatís a lot, especially compared to only
two cars in the LMP2 group. Sadly, only one of them is good and that is an Audi
R10 TDI. I know itís a very expensive car, however youíll also be able to use
it to win the 24 Hours Le Mans race at the end of the season.

The good news is that youíll once again revisit some of the most famous
European circuits. The bad news is that youíll have to take control over an
extremely powerful vehicle. Thankfully, Audi is quite easy to drive and itíll
spin only when youíve made a serious mistake. Youíll be able to use this car to
win all four events with a fair advantage over other drivers.

Donington Park is your first race. You must pull off a good start, so youíll
overtake at least one of your opponents. Cut through the first corner and focus
your attention on faster corners ahead (screen). You should be able to take the
lead somewhere in this area. Watch out for the final sector of the track.
Thereís a chicane there, as well as two hairpins.

The second race (Nurburgring) seems to be the easiest one to win. Just as
before, you will have to start without any problems. Use the first hairpin to
your advantage. This is the area where you should take the lead. Now you must
only focus on not making any mistakes and the first place should be yours.

The third race is in Spa and it shouldnít pose as a great challenge. Start off
by cutting through the first hairpin. If youíre lucky, you should be able to
take the lead here. Otherwise wait for a right moment to make a move. Watch out
near the first hill. Slide the car slightly here or move to the left (screen),
but you have to watch out not to hit the tire wall.

The fourth and final race is going to take place on the Jarama circuit. Itíll
be easy. Watch out only for two hairpins, because your vehicle may slide there
a little bit. Prevent it from leaving the track. Other than that, itíll be of
no challenge to you.

OPEN WHEEL-Head 2 Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all three
tournaments from this group. Sadly, this is going to be an EXTREMELY difficult
head to head challenge, mostly because youíll have to use a Formula 3 car. Your
opponent will do his best to hold the lead and you wonít be allowed to make any
mistakes. Otherwise you wonít have the time to catch up to your opponent.

The duel is going to take on a Nurburgring circuit. I guess I should tell you
that youíll be moving in an opposite direction, so make sure that youíve
familiarized yourself with this track. Start off as fast as possible, without
the unnecessary wheel spin. Try getting closer to your rival and follow him
through the first turn. You wonít be allowed to slow down too much, so you must
remember to choose a perfect racing line. If youíre lucky, youíll take the lead
here. Otherwise try overtaking your opponent near the first chicane (screen).
Blocking him may not seem as a fair move, but it can provide you with an early
lead. Also, make sure to avoid hitting your rival, because nothing good will
come out of it.

Donít make any mistakes once youíve gone past the chicane or your rival will
retake the lead. You will come across two new corners. DONíT slow down here,
because your car is good enough to maintain maximum speed. Observe your
opponent and block him when he tries to attack you. You should be able to reach
a new chicane. Slow down once youíre about to turn right (screen), because you
may end up outside the track.

The final part of the lap will begin with two challenging corners (screen). You
canít cut through them and you have to block your opponent at the same time.
Maintain higher speeds whenever itís possible, because your rival will do the
same thing. You should be able to reach the main straight without any other
problems. Focus on defending your achievement on the remaining two laps.
Remember to use the mini map to monitor what your opponent is doing. You canít
allow him to take the lead, because itís going to be very difficult to win back
the first place.

J-SPEED ROOKIE TNMTS I-JAPAN
============================

PRO TOUGE-Champion Touge Shield
THREE RACES
COURSE:Mount Haruna Ė Foothills
RECOMMENDED CAR:If youíre playing on Savage or Extreme difficulty level, you
should consider choosing a car with a good acceleration. You will have to deal
with some limited grip, but youíve got no other choice. Nissan Skyline or Dodge
Viper should do the trick. If youíre playing on the Serious difficulty (or even
a lower setting), consider choosing something which is easier to drive. I would
recommend using a Ford Mustang GT-R Concept.

Iím sure that this is a new type of a event for you, so you should really
consider waiting for the game to display a short tutorial movie. The structure
of this mode is very similar to some of the drift events, because youíll have
to win three trials Ė a quarterfinal, a semi-final and the final. Each time
youíll be going twice. The first run starts at the top of the hill and your
task is to reach the bottom. The second race takes place in a different
direction, so you must reach the top of the hill. The most important thing here
is that you MUST avoid hitting your opponent, because youíre receive some major
penalties for that. This becomes an issue during the second run of each trial,
because youíre starting as a second person on the grid.

Thankfully, the route is very short, so you wonít have any problems memorizing
where to brake and where to move at full speed. Reaching the finish line in
both events is going to take you less than one minute. The first run will
require you to have a great start, so you wonít allow your opponent to take the
lead. You can also block him if you want to, however it shouldnít be necessary.
Watch out for some very tricky corners. I wouldnít recommend cutting through
any of them, because you may end up hitting the barrier instead. Look at the
screen Ė itís the most difficult corner of the track. You will have to slow
down here, so youíll stay on the track. The final section of the run is also
quite challenging. Observe your opponent here and block him whenever he tries
to take the lead away from you.

The second race of each run is going to be much harder to win, because youíll
start it from the second place. As a result, you will have to focus all of your
efforts on overtaking your rival. Itís not necessary, however you would have to
finish this run within a smaller time margin than he did in the first race. You
shouldnít count on that, so try thinking like overtaking him is the only way to
win. I would recommend choosing one of the sharper corners (screen) for an
overtaking maneuver. Attack your rival from the inside and avoid hitting his
car.

DRIFT GP-Avo Turboworld Drift GP
THREE RACES
COURSE:Okutama Ė Drift Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will be allowed to choose only between those vehicles which
were manufactured in Japan. I would recommend choosing one of two available
Toyota models. Soarer is slightly faster than Corolla and thatís an important
thing, because speed is one of many factors taken under account while
performing in front of the audience.

I guess you wonít be surprised by the fact that youíll have to win three trials
and all of them will take place on the exact same track. Your only objective
will be to gather as many drift points as possible. At the end of each round
you must have more points than your rival. It shouldnít be difficult to win
here, even if youíre playing on a higher difficulty level. You will only have
to remember about two things Ė increasing the multiplier by drifting without
any interruptions and getting as close to the metal poles as possible in order
to receive additional bonuses. Thankfully, the track is very wide and it wonít
you a lot of time to reach the finish line. This event is a good practice,
especially since youíll be dealing with much harder drift events in the near
future.

FREESTYLE DRIFT:HKS Freestyle Drift
COURSE:Yokohama Ė Freestyle Arena D; Yokohama Ė Freestyle Arena C; Yokohama Ė
Freestyle Arena A
RECOMMENDED CAR:You wonít have to race anyone and you will have a whole area at
your disposal, so it doesnít really matter which vehicle youíll decide to
choose. This is going to be a very unusual tournament and it appears only once
in the career mode, so you wonít have to worry about repeating it. Your job
stays the same Ė you must perform huge drifts in order to gather more points
than your opponents. The main difference is that youíll be given a large arena
and itíll be up to you to explore it. You wonít have to stick to a designated
track. Obviously this means youíll have to spend a lot of time to familiarize
yourself with all three arenas. Itís not necessary, but itís often wise to know
what to expect. I wouldnít recommend straying off the central zone of each map,
because thereís a possibility of encountering narrow segments and you could
easily crash there. Donít forget to link your drifts, so youíll have better
chances at scoring more points than your main rival in each round. The final
arena (Freestyle Arena A) is by far the trickiest one, because you wonít
encounter too many open roads here, so youíll have to be more precise. Scoring
a few hundred thousand points in each event should secure your win in the
overall standings.

PRO TUNED-Jun Street Series
TWO RACES
COURSE:Yokohama Ė Docks Route B1; Yokohama Ė Docks Route C2
RECOMMENDED CAR:Nissan has the best models in the Pro Tuned category. As a
result, you should consider buying one of these vehicles. Skyline GT-R seems to
be a better car on paper, however 350Z is much easier to drive and this is the
car you should use during this event, especially since itíll be more about
precision, rather than raw performance.

This tournament is an excellent example of what you can except of Japan. You
will have to be ready to race on very narrow tracks, filled with a large number
of obstacles. Some of these objects can be destroyed, but most of them will
stop your car. The only solution to this problem is to stick to the middle of
the road, even when youíre approaching corners. You will also have to stray off
the asphalt road a few times. Some of these shortcuts are very unusual, so
observe your map in order to find out where to go. Obviously getting to know
the tracks in the Race Day mode is a good idea, however you should be able to
win this event without any major preparations.

The first race is going to begin with a series of mild curves. Sadly, this
means you wonít be allowed to overtake your rivals right away. Instead, youíll
have to chase them. Donít even think about cutting through the corners, because
thereís a possibility of hitting the metal barriers. You should be able to
reach a hairpin very soon. Try sliding through these corners, instead of
slowing down. Be careful, because youíll have to leave the asphalt road and
turn right (screen). Donít hit the trailers and avoid other large objects as
well.

You should be able to reach a slower section of the track very soon. This is
where youíll have to be very precise. Donít hit the metal gate, because that
would be equal to destroying your car. The final sector consists of a very
difficult left hairpin (screen). You will have to start turning early, so you
donít end up on the outside. There are two laps to go. You should focus on
securing your lead. If youíre not first, try getting closer to the leaders, but
donít risk too much, because youíll still be able to win the second race of the
tournament.

The second track of the championship seems to be a more challenging one,
however you should be familiar with the car by now, so itís going to get easier
to chase other vehicles. Once youíve started, youíll have to deal with a large
number of sharp corners. Iíd strongly recommend that you drive aggressively
here in order to overtake as many cars as possible. Watch out for a very
difficult hairpin. The second part of the lap is going to surprise you with a
left turn (screen) to the garage. Itís very tricky there and you have to turn
right in order to maintain a perfect racing line. Donít hit any obstacles near
the finish line and youíll finish a clean lap.

J-SPEED ROOKIE TNMTS II-JAPAN
=============================

PRO TOUGE-Viper Vs Skyline Challenge
THREE RACES
COURSE:Mount Haruna Ė Foothills
RECOMMENDED CAR:The title of this tournament suggests that youíll be allowed to
choose between two vehicles. Nissan Skyline GT-R Z-Tune is a much better
choice, because itís easier to handle than Dodge Viper SRT-10.

Iím certain that itís going to be very easy for you to win in all of these
events, mostly because computer players wonít be as fast as you would expect
them to be. Additionally, Skyline is perfect in these conditions. Controlling
the vehicle through tight bends is going to be very easy. Your only concern is
going to be the second run in each race, because youíll be starting there from
second place. Donít forget that you arenít allowed to hit your competitor,
because you would be punished with a few seconds added to your overall time.
Try overtaking your opponent as soon as youíve started the second run (screen).
It shouldnít be a problem, especially if youíve started without the wheels
spinning. Doing this will allow you to catch up to him quickly. Once youíve
taken the lead, focus on defending your first place, but donít crash into any
barriers at the same time.

PRO TUNED-Nissan Cup
TWO RACES
COURSE:Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:Once again, you will be dealing with cars made by Nissan. You
will have to choose between Skyline GT-R and 350Z. I would recommend taking the
350Z for a quick spin, however you can also choose a Skyline, as long as youíre
comfortable with how this vehicle handles on the road.

Youíve been to this track before, but probably only once (during a drift
event). As youíve noticed, both tracks in this tournament are very wide,
however you wonít be allowed to perform any risky maneuvers, because itís easy
to end up outside the track.

The first race of the tournament is slightly easier than the second one,
because you wonít encounter too many difficult corners. You will have to go
through a very long curve once youíve started. Donít even think about slowing
down here. Instead, try sliding a little bit. Overtake at least a few cars, but
avoid hitting them. Watch out for the first tight bend (screen). Stay on the
inside, because otherwise you would have ended up being caught in the gravel
trap.

You should be able to reach a new set of corners very soon. You will have to
maintain a correct racing line here, so you wonít slow down too much and you
wonít end up outside the main track. The final sector of the lap will require
you to turn left (screen). Stay on the asphalt road and you should be fine.
Youíve got three more laps to go. Try closing the gap to the leaders and watch
out while going through some of the trickier corners.

The second race takes place on a slightly more difficult track. Youíll revisit
the same place, but this time youíll be going in an opposite direction. As a
result, itís going to be harder to go through some of the corners. You will
also have to slow down more often. The most difficult corner of the race is the
second one (screen). Start moving right even before your see it, because
otherwise youíll end up going straight and youíll be overtaken by all other
drivers.

MIDNIGHT TOUGE-Head 2 Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all six tournaments
from this group. This duel is going to familiarize you with new types of
events, called Midnight Touge. The whole idea for a race is very similar to Pro
Touge, so youíll have a canyon road and your task will be to get ahead of the
second car. The only difference is that the race is going to take place at
night. You will only have to win one run, however reaching the finish line in
this head to head challenge is going to take you more than three minutes.

As youíve probably suspected, even if you manage to pull off a perfect start,
your opponent will take an early lead. Itís up to you to take that lead away
from him. As a result, you will have to go through the first set of corners
flawlessly and eventually youíll end up going side by side (screen). Block him,
however avoid crashing into his car. Thankfully, you wonít have to worry about
him fighting back, because itís a very narrow track.

I guess it wonít come as a surprise to you that the track is going to be quite
challenging. There are a lot of hairpins, as well as tricky fast corners. I
suspect that you may have some problems using the brakes in few areas (screen).
Push the brake button early, so you wonít end up hitting the wall. Leaving the
asphalt road will also give your rival an opportunity to take the lead, so you
canít allow that to happen.

The final sector of the track will force you to deal with a large number of
very sharp turns. Youíve got three choices here Ė you can try drifting, you can
try maintaining an ideal racing line by going from one side of the road to
another or you can try slowing down immensely each time you approach a new
hairpin. Either way, you should stay in the lead. Watch out for a few fast
corners (screen). Block your opponent here if you see him on your mini map. The
final section is identical to the one from Pro Touge, so you should be able to
pull off a safe win.

J-SPEED SUPER TWO TNMTS 1-JAPAN
===============================

DOWNHILL DRIFT-Downhill Drift Festival
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Mount Haruna Ė Drift Run
RECOMMENDED CAR:All available vehicles may come in handy during this drift
even. I would recommend choosing a car which is easier to drive, because the
track is going to be difficult and there wonít be any room for error. Toyota
Soarer seems like a good choice, however you can also consider taking a smaller
Corolla.

This drift event is very similar to other races from the group. The only
difference is that youíll be starting the race at top of the hill. Sadly, this
means youíll have to deal with a very tricky route. You will also have to
change your driving style, because you wonít be allowed to pull off more
dangerous stunts. The key to success will be to stay in the middle of the
track. The only time youíll want to head on to the inside is when you want to
get closer to the metal poles. You will have to complete four trials and each
time you will have to gather more points in order to succeed. Practicing the
track in the Race Day mode is a good idea, however itís optional. You should be
able to learn it during the course of the tournament.

The track youíre about to conquer is a very tricky one, especially near the
finish. Donít forget that you must keep increasing your multiplier by linking
drifts. Only then youíll be able to score a lot of points and youíll defeat
your current rival. Like Iíve already said, you shouldnít forget about the
metal poles, because youíll be rewarded for driving close to them. Watch out
near the finish line. There are a lot of hairpins out there, so you will have
to adjust your driving style. Approach each hairpin from the outside and cut
through it aggressively, so youíll find yourself next to the metal pole. You
canít slow down too much, because you wonít receive any points for a successful
drift. Donít forget about the possibility of using flashbacks. They may come in
handy whenever youíve lost a lot of points as a result of a mistake.

PRO TUNED-Falken Super Street
THREE RACES
COURSE:Shibuya Ė Street Circuit B; Shibuya Ė Street Circuit; Shibuya Ė Short
Street Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:Nissan Skyline GT-R Z-Tune and Nissan 350Z are one of the best
vehicles to choose from. The other two (Honda NSX and Toyota Supra) are much
worse when it comes to handling, so you might as well ignore them.

All three races of this tournament take place in Shibuya, however you will have
to deal with three variations of the circuit. Itís very easy to pull off a win
in each race. The only thing youíll have to remember about is to avoid hitting
walls. Having an agile car is important here, because you will be dealing with
a lot of chicanes and tight corners.

The first race is going to begin with a long right hairpin. You wonít have to
slow down too much, however avoid hitting the outer barrier for obvious
reasons. The most difficult section of the track is the roundabout area
(screen). I would recommend slowing down only slightly, so you wonít have to
slide the car and youíll stay on the proper racing line. The final part of the
lap consists of a sharp left turn. You should also know that the track is very
narrow there, but it shouldnít be a major problem.

The second race is even easier than the first one. As a result, you should be
able to take the lead on the first or second lap. There are many slow sections
on the track and thatís where other drivers can be overtaken. Try getting
through the middle section of the track by moving the car only slightly and
staying close to the inside of each corner. You should be able to master this
maneuver after a few laps. Doing this will also allow you to extend your lead
over your rivals. Watch out for a tight left hairpin (screen). Donít try
cutting through this corner, because itís very easy to crash into the barrier.

The final third race consists of eight laps, however itís not a major problem,
because itís very short. Finishing a single lap of this race should take you
about 30 seconds, so itís going to be easy to memorize all difficult corners.
Once again, you will be dealing with a chicane at the roundabout (screen).
Donít forget that itís better to slow down, so you wonít have to struggle here.

PRO TUNED-Toda Racing Challenge
THREE RACES
COURSE:Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit B; Okutama Ė Grand
Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:Youíve dealt with some of these races in the past, so you
should know what to expect. Sadly, you will have to take control over a Honda
which is very unstable at high speeds. As a result, achieving two wins isnít
going to be a simple thing. This becomes an issue during the second race. USE
THE BRAKES before approaching the second corner (screen). Try going through
some of other corners at full speed. Focus only on chasing the leaders of the
race, because the track isnít too long and youíve only got six laps to succeed.

The third track is going to be completely new to you. As youíve probably
suspected, youíll be dealing with a longest version of this track, so youíll
only have to complete two laps. Finishing each lap takes about two minutes. You
should be able to reach a junction very soon. Try maintaining a higher speed
while going through this section and watch out near some of the faster corners.
Prevent the car from sliding too much towards the rock wall. You should be able
to reach a long bridge very soon. Be careful Ė thereís a chicane at the end of
it (screen). Slow down here in order to avoid potential problems.

You will have to be extremely careful, because itís very narrow here and there
are a lot of sharp turns ahead. Also, youíll be surround by walls from both
sides, so you wonít be allowed to stray off the main track. Nevertheless, try
moving as fast as possible, because AI drivers may catch up to you and theyíll
even try performing overtaking maneuvers. You should be getting closer to a
very sharp turn (screen). Brake early and accelerate the second once youíve
gone past it. You wonít be allowed to slow down here, because youíll lose your
lead. The final sector of the lap is very similar to the first race, so you
should be able to gain a few places here.

MIDNIGHT TOUGE-NOS Midnight Touge
THREE RACES
COURSE:Mount Haruna Ė Akina Run
RECOMMENDED CAR:Itís extremely important that you choose a car with an
excellent acceleration for this event. I would recommend choosing a Nissan
Skyline GT-R Z-Tune. You could also consider choosing a Dodge Viper, however as
you probably remember, this car is very difficult to drive. You canít rely only
on good performance.

You will have to deal with one extra problem during the course of this event.
Youíve probably noticed it in the tutorial movie. Civilian vehicles will appear
on the track from time to time and itíll be up to you to avoid them at all
costs. Thankfully, you wonít have to worry about encountering some heavy
traffic, because this isnít ďBurnoutĒ nor ďTest Drive UnlimitedĒ. You will come
across only a few cars and some of the races wonít suffer from it at all.
Either way, you will have to focus on staying on the left lane, because the
traffic in Japan is inverted.

You should notice that both you and your opponent start the race close to each
other, so you canít count on being able to take a comfortable lead. Itís very
important to have a perfect start. If your rival takes the lead, focus all of
your efforts on overtaking him somewhere nearby. Thankfully, you will be
allowed to cut through some of the upcoming corners by going through the grass.
Be careful, though. At least one civilian vehicle may appear on the track
(screen). Thankfully, youíll have plenty of time to avoid crashing into this
car.

The track is very difficult, because it consists of a large number of sharp
turns. Youíll also be dealing with tricky chicanes, like the one one the
screen. Each time you must use the brakes early, so you wonít end up hitting
the barrier or leaving the track. Avoid hitting the walls, because you would
crash or lose some speed. The final section of the track will force you to deal
with a challenging hairpin. During next events of the tournament youíll be
dealing with stronger opponents, so it becomes clear that you wonít be able to
win unless you know the track.


J-SPEED SUPER TWO TNMTS II-JAPAN
================================

GT2-Valvoline Trophy
THREE RACES
COURSE:Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit B; Shibuya Ė Street Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint
Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:Sadly, you wonít be given a chance to choose your own car. All
the contestants are using a Spyker C8 Spyder. I used the term Ďsadlyí, because
itís one of the most difficult vehicles to handle and you wouldnít even think
about choosing it in normal racing conditions.

Winning this tournament is going to be very difficult. Youíll have some major
problems with two races Ė the first one and the final third one. Winning them
is next to impossible if you havenít practiced driving a Spyker. Obviously
knowing the track is equally important, however youíve raced here many times
before.

Letís start by saying a things about the first race in this tournament. The
whole idea of winning it is to go through the entire track without slowing
down. Also, youíll only use the brakes once or twice. It may seem unreal at
first, however youíll come to the same conclusion once youíve started the race
a few times (and lost). You will be allowed to slow down only twice. The first
area is near the start. You canít take the first corner at full speed (screen),
because youíll lose control over your car or youíll end up on the grass. This
becomes frustrating on the opening lap, because there are other vehicles ahead
of you. I would recommend restarting the event a few times in order to receive
a better spot on the grid (somewhere in the middle of the pack). Either way,
you will have to be very careful here. Touching other cars isnít officially
forbidden, but nothing good would come out of it. You would probably spin the
car around and thatís more than enough to jeopardize your chances of scoring a
good place at the finish.

Donít forget about the second right corner, because you wonít notice it at
first glance and you also have to pass through it at maximum speed. The second
area where you can slow down has been displayed on the screen. Itís one of the
tougher chicanes. Donít use the brakes, though. Releasing the gas pedal for a
second or two is more than enough. Doing this will allow you to stay on the
track. Watch out near the finish line. Thereís a mild curve there and it needs
to be passed through at full speed. As for other contestants, try overtaking
them somewhere in the middle section of the track, once youíve gone past the
second corner. Sadly, this means youíll be able to advance only 1-2 places per
lap, so itís important not to start the race from the back of the grid, because
you wouldnít have enough time to finish on the podium.

I guess you may be surprised a little by the fact that the second race is
extremely simple to win. Other contestants will suffer from the lack of grip
here. Thanks to that, you wonít have any problems overtaking them. You should
be able to take the lead on the first lap. The only thing you have to worry
about are some of the hairpins. Your car may have some problems slowing down,
so youíll have to brake early. The third race is going to be only a little
easier than the first one, mostly because you wonít have so many problems
staying on the track. The bad news is that youíll have even more problems
overtaking other vehicles, because you can pass through almost an entire lap
without slowing down. Your only chance is the first sharp corner (screen), but
youíll only gain a few places there. Obviously you will have to be driving
flawlessly, so you wonít give other players the opportunity to win back their
places.

DRIFT BATTLE-Remus Drift Battle
THREE RACE
COURSE:Yokohama Ė Docks Route A1; Okutama Ė Drift Circuit; Yokohama Ė Docks
Route A2
RECOMMENDED CAR:This is also going to be a challenging tournament, so you
should consider choosing a vehicle which will allow you to pull off some insane
stunts. If you donít mind experimenting a little bit, consider purchasing a
Mazda RX-7 FD3S. Otherwise you should choose a Toyota Soarer or a Nissan
Silvia.

This is also going to be a challenging tournament, so you should consider
choosing a vehicle which will allow you to pull off some insane stunts. If you
donít mind experimenting a little bit, consider purchasing a Mazda RX-7 FD3S.
Otherwise you should choose a Toyota Soarer or a Nissan Silvia.

This is going to be the worst possible version of drift, because not only
youíll have to gather points but youíll also have to watch out for other cars.
Each track will force you to change your tactics a little bit, even though they
may all look the same.

The first race takes place in Yokohama. Sadly, the circuit consists of a large
number of sharp turns. Additionally, youíre going to be surrounded by walls and
large obstacles. You will have to make a decision whether you plan on staying
near the leader at all costs or maybe you like to remain somewhere in the
middle of the pack, pulling off excellent drifts. You can win this event the
same way youíve been winning before Ė by increasing your multiplier and moving
close to metal poles. Itís often wise to slow down on this track, even if it
means gathering less points. Itís always better than crashing and losing all of
them. Thankfully, there are some faster corners as well, so youíll be able to
increase your speed there and you wonít have to worry about your surroundings
so much.

The second run (screen) is by far the easiest one of all three. If you werenít
capable of taking the lead before, nowís your chance. The most important thing
about this circuit is that itís very wide. As a result, you wonít have problems
gathering a lot of points, even if youíre less experienced in winning these
types of events. You should also be able to stay somewhere in front, maybe even
as a leader of the race.

The third run in the tournament is very similar to the first one. Sadly, this
means youíll have to deal with a large number of sharp corners. This becomes
frustrating near the start and at the end of each lap. You should be able to
gather a lot of points in the middle of the track, because itís much easier out
there to avoid hitting cars and obstacles. Donít try taking the lead at all
costs, however you shouldnít be the last one in the pack as well. Try staying
somewhere in the middle and you will gather enough points to win the race.

DRIFT BATTLE-Head 2 Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all six tournaments
from this group. I guess you wonít be surprised to hear that this duel is going
to be more difficult than some of the ďstandardĒ drift events. Your opponent is
very skilled, so youíll have to gather A LOT of points to beat him. Ignore the
fact that his account wonít show any points for a longer period of time,
because thatís when heíll be increasing his multiplier. Nevertheless, he
shouldnít be able to pull off more than one clean lap, so itís not a disastrous
situation.  The key to success here is to achieve a highest possible
multiplier, because only then youíre be capable of keeping up with your
opponent. Donít try getting closer to the metal poles, because it can be
dangerous here. Remember that only one crash can delete all your achievements.
You wonít have to lead this race, however you should be presented with a few
opportunities to overtake your rival, mostly when he makes some kind of a
mistake. React quickly to such actions, because youíll be allowed to gather
more points when youíre in the lead. If you didnít make any mistakes and pulled
off nice multipliers, you should be able to win this head to head challenge on
your first run.

J-SPEED SUPER ONE TNMTS-JAPAN
=============================

DRIFT GP-Driftbox Championship
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Yokohama Ė Docks Route A1
RECOMMENDED CAR:You wonít have to spend a lot of time trying to decide which
vehicle is going to be the best one to win this race. I wouldnít recommend
choosing cars which are difficult to drive, because you would have to struggle
to win all four races. Something with more grip is exactly what you should be
looking for.

Youíve had many opportunities to familiarize yourself with this track. You
should remember where to look out for obstacles and where to pull off insane
drifts. Youíll be starting alone, so itís going to get a lot easier to gather
points and to increase your multiplier. You should be able to win all events by
collecting at least 500000 points. You donít have to be extremely precise,
however you wonít be allowed to make too many mistakes, because each error will
delete your points or nullify your multiplier. Just as before, watch out for
some of the sharper turns, as well as large obstacles. Each time (there are
four rounds of the tournament) you will have to complete two laps, so make sure
you havenít used up all available flashbacks right away.

GT1-Volk GT Series
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Shibuya Ė Street Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit; Shibuya Ė Street
Circuit B; Shibuya Ė Short Street Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:This is a GT1 class event, so youíll have a lot of cars at your
disposal. I would recommend choosing a Saleen S7R which seems to be the easiest
to drive. If you donít like it, consider choosing a Koenigsegg CCGT.

Saleen will knock out the rest of the competition in Shibuya, mostly because
itís very easy to handle considering how powerful it is. You shouldnít have any
problems overtaking other drivers, especially since there are a lot of sharp
corners. AI drivers have problems there. You donít have to avoid crashing into
other vehicles, however prevent your car from being heavily damaged. The most
difficult sections of all three Shibuya tracks are the hairpins (screen). You
will have to use the brakes early or youíll end up hitting the wall. Iím sure
that you know this issue from the Spyker event. Winning on all these tracks
(first, third and fourth in the championship) is going to be easy, so you donít
have to worry about not being first in Okutama.

The second race of the tournament is going to be the toughest one of all four,
mostly because you will have to focus your attention on staying on the track
and traveling at high speeds. Thankfully, itís going to be easier than before,
when you were driving a Spyker. This time you will have to use the brakes a few
times. The first mild curve (screen) should allow you to overtake a few
vehicles on each lap. Watch out for shaper corners in the middle of the track.
Accelerate once youíve gone past them, however be careful near the finish line.

PROTOTYPE-Vertex Protoype Championship
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Okutama Ė Grand Circuit; Okutama Ė Grand Circuit B; Okutama Ė Sprint
Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will have to choose between two vehicles of the Prototype
category. Mazda 787B is a much better choice than Nissan R390 GT-1.

As youíve probably suspected, winning this tournament isnít going to be a
simple thing to do. Both vehicles from the Prototype class are difficult to
handle, especially at high speeds. Also, you will have to avoid crashing into
other cars, because not only youíll damage your vehicle but youíll also end up
outside the track. Try winning at least two out of four races. As for the
remaining two, you will have to end them being somewhere near the podium. This
should allow you to win the championship and to collect a golden trophy.

Youíve already been to the Grand Circuit in Okutama before, so you wonít be
surprised by how difficult it is to win here. Watch out for some of the fast
corners in the first sector of the lap. You will also have to be careful on the
bridge and after youíve left it. I would recommend slowing down a lot in order
to prevent the car from hitting some of the nearby walls. Watch out for a very
tight left turn (screen). Use the brakes early and accelerate once youíve gone
past this segment safely. You will have to careful here, however you wonít be
allowed to drive too slow, because other drivers will catch up to you. The
final section of the lap consists mostly of mild curves. Maintain higher speeds
but avoid straying off the main track. You should focus your attention here on
catching up to the leaders of the race.

The second race of the championship will require you to explore the exact same
track, however you will be moving in an opposite direction. From my experience
I can tell you that it should be a little easier to win here, however knowing
the track is going to be crucial to your success. Watch out once youíve
started, because itís easy to crash the car here. Donít worry Ė youíll have
plenty of opportunities to overtake other players. Be careful once youíve left
the tunnel (screen). This seems to be the most difficult section of the track.
You will have to maintain an ideal racing line, as well as go through a very
tight corner. The second part of the lap is easier. Avoid hitting the barriers
and watch out for some faster corners and chicanes.

As for two of the remaining tracks, youíve been here many times before. Sadly,
this doesnít mean that winning here is going to be an easy achievement. Youíll
probably encounter more problems while going in an opposite direction. You must
be very careful in order to avoid crashing into other cars, because nothing
good would come out of it. Use the first corner to overtake a few vehicles, as
well as the middle section. Watch out for some sharp turns, though (screen).
The final corner will require you to achieve maximum speed. You canít slow down
or youíre going to get overtaken by other vehicles.

PROTOTYPE-Head 2 Head
Participating in this duel is possible only when youíve won all three
tournaments from this group. You shouldnít have any major problems winning this
head to head challenge. Once again, youíre going to have to participate in a
Touge event, so this means youíll be racing in the canyons. The biggest
difficulty is that you have to use a prototype vehicle during this event.
Thankfully, your opponent will slow down in many areas. As a result, you
shouldnít complain about not being able to overtake him. You should act
similiar to some of the previous Touge races of the career mode. This means you
must have a perfect start, because your opponent will take the lead anyway. You
wonít have to worry about encountering any civilian vehicles, so focus only on
taking the lead away from your rival. This can occur while going through some
of the first corners of the race (screen). If youíre unsuccessful, try waiting
for both of you to get to sharper hairpins.

Sadly, your Mazda wasnít made to participate in these types of events, so
youíll be struggling to get through some of the sharper corners. If you feel
like youíre slowing down too much, consider drifting with a little help of the
handbrake (screen). Otherwise you would lose a lot of time and you would also
give your rival a chance to close the gap to your car. You will also have to
watch out for fast chicanes and mild curves, because itís easy to make mistakes
in these areas. Reaching the finish line should take you about two minutes.

GLOBAL RACING LEAGUE TNMTS 1
============================

These tournaments will be unlocked once youíve gathered one million respect
points. You will also be given a global license which grants full access to
other events.


OPENWHEEL-Philips World Championship
FIVE RACES
COURSE:Detroit Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit; Milan Ė Circuito
di Milano; Washington Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:All the contestants are using Formula 3 vehicles, so you wonít
be allowed to choose a car on your own.
This is one of the most difficult tournaments in this group, at least in my
personal opinion. If youíve participated in F3 challenges before, you should
how difficult it is to handle these cars on the track. Additionally, other
drivers will push to their limits, so it wonít be easy to outrun them, let
alone reach the podium. Itís doubtful that youíll win all five events. I would
recommend finishing first on three tracks and reaching the podium or the fourth
spot in the remaining two events.

Detroit is one of the easier tracks of the tournament, mostly because you wonít
have to worry about finding yourself outside the track. If youíll make a
mistake, youíll probably bounce off a wall, however watch out for tire walls Ė
they can stop you permanently. The first corner is very tricky. I would
recommend slowing down, because there is a possibility of going too wide
(screen). There are some tires there, as well as a small gravel trap. You will
have avoid those at all costs if you plan on achieving good results. Go through
the slowest section of the track carefully. The middle sector should allow you
to overtake a few cars. Watch out for a tight hairpin, as well as other tight
corners. The final section of the lap consists of two chicanes. Avoid hitting
the barriers here, especially if this is your final lap.

The second stage of this tournament is by far the most difficult one, so you
should be more than satisfied if youíve finished in third or fourth here. The
most important thing for you to know about is that youíll have to go through an
entire lap at full speed, including the first section. Thatís where youíve
tried to overtake other cars before, so know youíll have to find yourself a new
spot. I would recommend choosing one of the middle chicanes (screen). Be
careful not to hit other cars, because youíll end up restarting the race or
using a flashback. Also, I wouldnít recommend cutting through the corners,
because thereís a possibility of losing control over your vehicle.

The third track of this championship event is a street circuit. This is also
one of the toughest races in the series, so you shouldnít try winning it at all
costs. Finishing the race in the top three is a good achievement. Approach the
first roundabout carefully (screen). You canít be going too fast and you canít
cut through this corner, because youíre going to crash or youíll lose control
over your vehicle. Be careful when going through slower corners. Donít forget
to chase the leaders of the race. There are only three laps, so you wonít have
a lot of time to catch up to them.

Action of the fourth race takes place in Washington. This is one of the easier
circuits, however you should know that other drivers are very fast on this
track and they will force you to travel at ridiculously high speeds. Donít
crash your car at the start of the race. Choose sharper turns and hairpins for
places to overtake other drivers. Watch out for some of the fastest corners,
like the one on the screen (screen). Youíll have to maintain an ideal racing
line in these areas, so you wonít crash and you wonít allow other drivers to
extend their lead.

The final race is in Istanbul Park. Thankfully, itís definately the easiest
one, as long as you know where youíre going. Other drivers are kind of slow
throughout the entire first section of the lap, so youíll have a lot of
opportunities to overtake them. Watch out once youíre close enough to four mild
curves (screen). You canít slow down here and you have to cut through these
corners in order to prevail. Thankfully, youíll regain some of the lost time
near the finish line, however watch out for the hairpins.

TOURING CARS-Bridgestone Challenge
FIVE RACES
COURSE:Detroit Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Washington Ė Grand Prix Circuit;
Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Istanbul Park Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Milan Ė
Circuito di Milano
RECOMMENDED CAR:BMW 320SI is a perfect car for these conditions. You wonít have
any problems driving it and itís probably already in your garage.
This is by far the easiest tournament of the global race group. Winning all
five races is extremely simple, even if youíre a less experienced player. The
most important thing is that all vehicles of the Touring Cars category are slow
and easy to drive. You should also be familiar with all five tracks, so youíll
know where to achieve maximum speed and when to brake.

The first race is in Detroit, so donít forget to avoid cutting through some of
the corners, because you may hit a tire wall. Be careful while going through
the hairpin which can be found in the middle section of the track. Both
vehicles from this class brake poorly, so youíll have to take that under
account. Other than that, you should be able to reach the finish line with a
comfortable lead over the second car.

Next up, youíll have to move to Washington. This race is slightly more
challenging, mostly because youíll have to precise while going through some of
the corners. You wonít be allowed to approach them a very high speed, because
youíll only spin the car around. Also, avoid leaving the asphalt road, because
youíll lose a few seconds at best. Focus on having a good start here (screen)
and then start overtaking other vehicles. I wouldnít recommend playing too
aggressively, because you may lose a lot more than you could ever gain.

The third track of the championship is Nurburgring and itís one of the easier
ones. You shouldnít have any major problems taking an early lead. Watch out
only while going through some of the faster corners. Also, donít forget to use
the brakes and maintain a perfect racing line once youíve reached the final
chicane. Istanbul is going to get even easier. You will only have to be careful
near the finish line, because itíll be easy to spin the car there.

Milan is going to get more difficult, mostly because you wonít be allowed to
make any mistakes on this track. Additionally, it wonít be easy to catch up to
the leaders of the race, so youíll have to be driving flawlessly. Try cutting
through some of the corners (screen), however prevent the car from sliding too
much.

GLOBAL RACING LEAGUE TNMTS II
=============================

DRIFT GP-Advan Drift International
FOUR RACES
COURSE:Shibuya Ė Hachiko Drift Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:Just as before, it doesnít really matter which vehicle of the
Drift category youíll decide to choose for this event. I would recommend having
a car with a lower Grip value, so you wonít have any problems performing
massive drifts. If youíre a less experienced driver, choose a Toyota or a
Nissan.

You will have to win four runs in order to achieve victory in this tournament.
Thankfully, youíll be the only car on the track, so youíll be capable of
performing cool drifts without having to worry about other drivers. As youíve
probably noticed, this is a narrow track, so you wonít be allowed to move too
much to the outside once youíve started drifting. You will also have to be
careful near some of the sharper corners, especially when you plan on getting
closer to the cones. Each run will require you to gather at least half a
million points. It shouldnít be too difficult, especially if youíve increased
your multiplier a few times.

GT1-Brembo World GT
FIVE RACES
COURSE:Washington Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Shibuya Ė Street Circuit B; Istanbul
Park Ė Intermediate Circuit B; Jarama Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Long Beach Ė Street
Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:This is a GT1 class event, so you should be familiar with the
fact that youíll be presented with a lot of interesting vehicles. Saleen S7R
and Aston Martin DBR9 are some of the best cars in the pack. Saleen is easier
to drive and Aston is faster. The choice is yours. :-)

The first track of this tournament is located in Washington. It wonít be easy
to win here, since youíll be struggling in the first section of the lap.
Nevertheless, you should focus on having a perfect start. Choose sharper
corners for places to perform overtaking maneuvers. Donít forget that youíll be
allowed to cut through some of the corners (screen) without having to worry
about losing control over your car. Avoid ramming into other vehicles, because
these crashes may send you somewhere outside the track.

The second race is in Shibuya and you shouldnít be surprised to hear that itís
going to be the easiest one. Use the fact that your rivals are slow here and
attack them from the inside whenever youíre close enough to them. Watch out
near the roundabout, because itís easy to crash there.

Istanbul Park is an easy track, however youíll be going in an opposite
direction, so itíll make your life more difficult. Watch out for the hairpins
which can be found near the start. The most difficult section is the sharp
right turn (screen) which is located in the middle of the track. Youíll be
traveling at a high speed there and you wonít notice it if you donít know that
itís there. Look on the mini map and brake once youíre close enough to it. Some
of the other corners are also quite challenging, however you should be able to
reach the finish line without any major problems.

Jarama circuit is one of the easiest events of the tournament. Thereís nothing
you should be worried about while racing here. Try cutting through most of the
corners and maintain optimal speed while going through both hairpins. Youíre
probably familiar with the layout of the track, so youíll know where to brake
and where to accelerate.

Itís been some time since youíve last raced in Long Beach, so you should take
it easy, especially since there are a lot of difficult corners here. Choose
these bends for places to overtake other players (screen). I wouldnít recommend
cutting through smaller chicanes. You should also stay away from the barriers,
because you may hit a tire wall instead.

PROTOTYPE-Castrol Prototype Series
FIVE RACES
COURSE:Long Beach Ė Classic Circuit; Washington Ė Grand Prix Circuit;
Nurburgring Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Milan Ė Circuito di Milano; Spa Francorchamps
Ė Grand Prix Circuit
RECOMMENDED CAR:Since youíre capable of choosing LMP1 class vehicles as well,
thereís only one vehicle you should be interested in. Obviously Iím talking
about an Audi R10 TDI. Youíve probably used this car many times before, mostly
during Le Mans 24 Hours events. If by any chance you donít like the car,
consider choosing a Ford Doran JE4 instead. Itís slower than the Audi, however
itís easier to control.

This is going to be a quite challenging tournament. The biggest difficulty is
that youíll have to take control over an extremely powerful car. Some of the
tracks are going to be narrow, so youíll have some problems navigating through
the corners. Also, donít forget that all the vehicles from the LMP1 class tend
to become unstable at lower speeds. Prevent them from sliding or youíre going
to crash. Winning in all five events is possible, however you wonít have to
fight so hard to be the first one in each event. Try winning at least three
times. As for the remaining two races, podium finish is going to be more than
enough to succeed in the overall standings.

The first race of the tournament is going to be one of the most difficult ones,
especially since you will have to deal with a large number of tight bends.
Also, you wonít be allowed to crash into other vehicles, because you canít win
a race in a damaged car. Thankfully, you will have a few opportunities to
overtake other vehicles (screen). Watch out for a few narrow sections,
including the tunnels.

Washington also has a challenging circuit. Itís important that you donít make
any mistakes here, especially after the race has started. Watch out while going
through some of the faster corners, because you may lose control over your
vehicle for a split second. There are some hairpins and tight corners on the
track and thatís when youíll have to perform overtaking maneuvers.

The third race in the calendar is on the Nurburgring circuit. It shouldnít be a
problem to win here, especially since AI drivers are moving slowly. Use the
first hairpin to overtake as many vehicles as possible, however donít try
cutting through this corner too aggressively or youíll lose control over your
car. The second area where you have to be careful is the final chicane.

Action of the fourth race of the tournament takes place in Milan. This seems to
be the most difficult event of these series, mostly because youíll be dealing
with a very narrow track. You wonít be allowed to make any mistakes. Watch out
near the finish line, because youíll be traveling at very high speeds. You
wonít be allowed to slow down, so youíll have to adjust your driving line
constantly (screen), especially since exceeding a top speed of 340-360km/h
isnít something out of the ordinary here. As for slower section, watch out for
the area near the roundabout and prevent your car from hitting the barriers or
the tire walls.

Spa circuit is the final event of this championship. Itís not going to be too
difficult, however knowing the track and the capabilities of your vehicles are
key points to success. Cut through the first corner and start accelerating. Be
careful in the middle of the track Ė you wonít be allowed to slow down there.
The final section will require you to travel at a full speed. Thankfully, even
if youíll end up outside the track, youíll still remain on the asphalt, so you
wonít have to worry about anything else.

GLOBAL RACING LEAGUE TNMTS III
==============================

PRO TUNED-Kendwood Global Series
FIVE RACES
COURSE:San Francisco Ė Grand Prix Circuit; Washington Ė Park Circuit; Jarama Ė
Grand Prix Circuit; Shibuya Ė Street Circuit; Okutama Ė Sprint Circuit B
RECOMMENDED CAR:You will have to make an important decision when it comes to
choosing a car for this event. You can choose a car which is easier to drive or
you can choose a vehicle which will allow you to overtake your rivals much
faster. The easiest vehicle to handle is a Ford Mustang GT-R Concept. If youíre
all about the performance, consider using a Nissan Skyline GT-R Z-Tune instead,
however take under consideration that itís going to be harder to cut through
some of the corners in this vehicle and youíll have to prevent it from sliding
too much. This is one of the easier tournaments of the global group, mostly
because all the vehicles are easy to drive, so you wonít have to focus all your
attention on trying to maintain a good racing line. Only a few vehicles (for
instance Ė a Viper) are trickier to handle, however you should have learned to
avoid them by now. As for the tracks, you will in fact be racing around the
world and you should know that only a few events are going to be more
difficult. In most cases, youíll be able to win as long as you donít make any
major mistakes.

The first track of the tournament is the San Francisco GP circuit. Youíve raced
here many times before, so you wonít be surprised by any new elements.
Nevertheless, you should stay focused throughout the entire race, especially
while performing small jumps (screen). Other drivers will push hard here, so
you wonít be allowed to slow down.

The Washington circuit will require you to plan each move very carefully,
especially in the open section. Thankfully, youíll be dealing with a shorter
version of the circuit. Donít forget to turn left at some point of the race,
instead of moving forward as usual.

Youíve probably never been to the Jarama circuit in a muscle-bar before,
however itís not a problem, because you wonít have to change your driving
style. This means youíll only have to watch out for two hairpins, because itís
easy to make a mistake there. As for other corners, try cutting through some of
them to gain time over your opponents.

The fourth track of the tournament is also going to be an easy one. Use the
fact that AI controlled players tend to slow down a lot. Watch out while going
through some of the faster corners, however itís nothing you should be worried
about, as long as you keep drifting a little.

The final track of the tournament is one of the shorter variations of Okutama
circuit. As youíve probably suspected, you will have to be very careful here.
Thankfully, due to lower performance of these vehicles itís going to be much
easier to stay on the track. As for your rivals, try overtaking them somewhere
in the middle of the track (screen). Avoid hitting them at the same time.
Thereís a high probability of losing control over your vehicle and you would
lose too much time trying to get back on the road.

PRESTIGE-Head 2 Head
This is going to be the final duel in the career mode. As a result, you
shouldnít be surprised to see that the game will make your run as hard as
impossible. First of all, you will have to play on the highest Extreme
difficulty level. You wonít be allowed to lower the difficulty level on your
own. This means your opponent is going to be more skilled at what heís doing
and you wonít be allowed to use flashbacks. You will be given only one
flashback for this race, so youíll have to preserve it, instead of using it to
correct smaller mistakes.

The final duel is going to take place in Le Mans, however youíll be dealing
with a shorter version of this circuit. Nevertheless, your objective will be to
complete three full laps which is going to take you about eight minutes. Also,
youíll be forced to sit behind the well of a Koenigsegg. As you probably
remember, itís a very unstable car, so you will have to be extra careful,
especially while going through slower turns. Prevent the vehicle from sliding,
because itís only a step away from spinning it and you losing the entire event.
You wonít be allowed to leave the asphalt road or even cut through the corners.
Your only chance of winning this event is to drive flawlessly and to defend
yourself against attacks of your rival.

Letís sit down and see exactly what this track has to offer, shall we? Once
youíve started, youíll probably notice that your rival has taken the lead. Itís
crucial to your success that you take the first place away from him once youíve
reached the first chicane (screen). You could try cutting through the gravel
trap, however you would probably lose control over your vehicle. The same goes
with two other laps when youíll have to be even more careful here.

You will have to deal with a few simple corners. Once this is done, youíll end
up on the main straight section of the track (screen). Itís very important that
you maintain a maximum speed of your vehicle (364 km/h) throughout this entire
part of the lap. You wonít be allowed to make any sudden turns and you canít
find yourself on the red section of the track, because your rival would
immediately catch up to you and took the lead. Youíll finally reach a very
tight corner. Use the brakes early, so you wonít end up dangerously close to
the gravel trap.

Start accelerating once again, however this time youíll reach a new set of
corners earlier than before. Cut through the first mild curve at full speed,
however use the brakes before approaching the second one (screen). Try staying
on the main track, so you wonít have to worry about your car making any sudden
moves. The final third corner is quite easy to pass through, as long as you
maintain an ideal racing line.

The final part of the circuit will require you to deal with five mild corners
(screen). I would recommend using the brakes only twice Ė before the first and
fourth corner. As for the remaining three, you should be able to pass through
them without any problems. There are also two chicanes in front of the finish
line. Be careful here, because you canít hit any of the tire walls.

As for the remaining two laps, itís crucial that you donít make any mistakes.
If you maintain good pace throughout the entire race, you wonít have to worry
about your opponent attacking you constantly. I would recommend that you spare
your flashback for the last lap, because thatís where youíll probably make some
kind of a mistake. Good luck! :)


LE MANS 24 HOURS
================

24-hour race in Le Mans appears on your list at the end of each season and
youíll probably finish 16-17 of those, depending on how many times youíll
repeat some of the tournaments and how many Driver Offer challenges youíve
decided to participate in. I wouldnít recommend skipping this event, even when
you donít have enough money to buy a vehicle. If youíre short on cash, consider
choosing one of the challenges by joining other teams only for this one event.
Itís important that youíre always using the fastest car in your class during
the event, so you wonít have to worry about other players attacking you
throughout the course of an entire race. This becomes very frustrating and may
result in you making a lot of mistakes. Remember that itís a long race, because
youíll have to be focused for 12 whole minutes.

Here are some of the most difficult sections of this track:
1) Obviously you should focus on having a good start. It doesnít really matter
   which class youíre riding in. Approach the hill and go through the first
   chicane safely (screen). Depending on your car, youíll have to stick to the
   ideal racing line or you can try cutting through the corner. Youíll have to
   figure out on your own whether youíll be allowed to play more aggressively
   or not.

2) Some of the upcoming corners may be tricky, especially the left one
   (screen). You wonít be allowed to leave the track, because thereís a high
   probability of spinning the car or being caught by a gravel trap. A mild
   curve leads to the first straight section of the road. You can try cutting
   through the grass or you can maintain a perfect racing line. You should be
   able to familiarize yourself with these corners after a few laps. Only the
   first one can be painful.

3) Reaching a new set of corners is going to take you a lot of time. Depending
   on the performance of your vehicle, it can take up to you 15-20 seconds. Use
   the brakes the second youíve noticed a tire wall in the background. I
   wouldnít recommend cutting through this chicane too aggressively (screen),
   especially if this one of your first runs. Nevertheless, try exiting the
   chicane as fast as possible, so you wonít have to wait too long for your car
   to achieve maximum speed.

4) This time itís going to take you less time to reach a new set of corners.
   Youíll have to deal with a very tricky chicane (screen). Use the brakes
   early. You could try moving a little to your left, however you would have to
   avoid ending up on the grass or near a gravel trap. If this is your first
   run, maintain a perfect racing line through these bends.

5) Once again, you will have to accelerate. Use the brakes near a mild corner
   which is going to be followed by a very difficult corner (screen). Itís
   EXTREMELY important that you donít brake too late, because you would have
   ended up in a gravel trap. Also, you wonít be allowed to cut through this
   corner, because thereís a tire wall here.

6) I guess you wonít be surprised to hear that once again youíll have to start
   accelerating. You should be able to reach a mild corner very soon. Go
   through it at maximum speed, however use the brakes once youíre close enough
   to a much tighter turn (screen). I wouldnít recommend cutting through it,
   because you could lose control over your vehicle. The third corner will
   require you to turn right. Consider cutting through the grass, however it
   can be dangerous. It all depends on what type of a vehicle youíre using for
   this race.

7) Itís going to take you about 10-15 seconds to get to a new difficult area of
   the lap. Your objective will be to go through five mild curves. I suspect
   that itís going to be some time until youíve mastered them. Itís very
   important to slow down the car before approaching the first corner.
   Accelerate near the second one (screen) and remain at a similar speed near
   the third corner. Brake before approaching the fourth corner and then
   accelerate once more to go past the last one.

8) The final part of the lap will require you to go through two tight chicanes,
   built out of tire walls (screen). You wonít be allowed to hit these
   obstacles for obvious reasons. I would recommend slowing down here,
   especially if your car has difficulties going through tight corners.

Now that took a while! You're done with the career mode, so now you can use the
skills you've learned to decimate your opponents in the multiplayer options.
