Game Play

You must first qualify for position by opening it up and speeding down a 400-meter straight-away in the time trials of the preliminary Drag Race. Then it is on to the Grand Prix.

You will have 70 seconds to navigate hair-pin curves, down-shift, brake, ease into bends and accelerate out. Avoid collisions, spinning rear tires, and engine backfire that will all use up time as you are judged according to the quality of both your driving and speed.
