Recommended Car[edit]

You could try and scour the Used Car Dealerships for a car that meets the entry criteria, but chances are you'll have little luck in doing so. The best opponent you'll race is a Dome-Zero Concept '78 - you'll get this as a prize car for winning Supercar Nostalgia A-Spec in the Amateur Series. You're best off coming back to this once you've done that, so don't waste the $499,860 credits by purchasing the Dome-Zero Concept '78 from the online dealership. If you can properly utilize the techniques laid out in the A and B license tests, the Dome-Zero will take this class without any tuning or modification.

Winning without the Dome-Zero is possible, but only by modifying the power on an already quick car (like the Nissan SKYLINE 2000GT-B (S54A) '67) and by blocking the Dome-Zero from passing, particularly on the straight-aways.


The event consist of three individual races:
