After the expert course has been cleared 50 times, the leftmost racer, Ben Quadinators, can be selected.PBeat Anakin in the Boonta Classic At the start of the race, use boost speed to get a good head start and at the first left turn, follow the pod in front of you. After the turn, straighten out and use the boost button again. Keep to the right to avoid traffic and hug the wall on the right turn. At the first big drop, you should be in second place. The pod with the big wings will bump you, giving you a boost in speed that will allow you to pass Anakin at the entrance of the canyon.
