Gameplay screenshot

There are three game modes to choose from:

  • Timed Practice: You complete laps on the selected circuit without competition.
  • One Race: You complete laps on the selected circuit with other races.
  • Complete Season: All tracks are selected for play.

When the race starts, accelerate as quickly as possible to the maximum speed; the best time to switch to a higher gear is when the RPM is between 8000-9999. You can attack almost all turns at full speed, as long as you only steer during the turn without continuing acceleration.
