Recommended Car[edit]

Amongst the best of the opposition cars is the Daihatsu OFC-1 Concept '07. You can either buy this car from the Daihatsu dealership for a rather pricey 30,000 credits, or as it's the prize car for obtaining Silver or better in each of the B-licence tests, get it that way. You'll have a fairly good shot in these races, even with a stock car - just ensure you try and carry as much speed as you can, as the cars are slow to accelerate. The usual B-spec caveat of extra tuning for a less able driver applies.

Alternatively, if you don't fancy going down the licence route, there are a bunch of similarly performing Suzuki and Daihatsu cars from the late 90s that are eligible for this race, which may appear in the Used Car Dealership for less money than the OFC-1, leaving you with some change to spend on tuning.


The event consists of two individual races:

Track Autumn Ring Mini

Suzuka Circuit East Course

A-Spec laps 3 3
B-Spec laps 6 6

if you do buy the 30,000 credit car have an extra 20,000 ready to spend on tuneing the car up, because at first its soo slow

Prize Money[edit]

In this event, prize money is awarded for placing in the following positions in a race:

1st 4,860cr 2nd 3,510cr 3rd 3,110cr
4th 2,920cr 5th 2,840cr 6th 2,780cr

(Original prize money rates)

Prize Cars[edit]

Cars obtained for getting Gold Trophies (i.e. finishing first) in both the races are as follows. Note that each car will only be awarded once, so be mindful of this if you choose to sell.
