B 52 seconds
C 51 seconds
D 49 seconds
E 48 seconds
F 46 seconds
G 45 seconds
H 44 seconds

Once the screen has faded into a shot of the starting line, the numbers "3", "2" and "1" will appear in the centre of the screen; the text "START" will then appear in the centre of the screen, and you shall have to step on the gas pedal to accelerate your car as you pass under a black helicopter, then pass a red sign which has an arrow that is pointing to the curved left on it on the right side of the track, and pass under a bridge with an electronic sign which is displaying the text "CHECK POINT" on it. You will now have to turn to the right, as you pass under another bridge, with another electronic sign (which is not displaying anything) on it, along with another red sign which has another arrow that is pointing to the curved left on it, and three green/black flashing signs with exclamation marks on them on the right side of the track - and you'll then have to turn to the left as you pass under a second black helicopter and drive into a tunnel then turn to the right as you pass ten golden "chevron" signs which are sticking out of the tunnel's left wall. Once you have come out of the tunnel, you will have to turn to the right. as you pass ten buildings on both sides of the track (one of which is a gas station named "Solvalou"), then turn to the left as you pass a red/yellow flashing sign (which has a fourth exclamation mark on it) on the right side of the track; you will now have to turn to the right, then turn to the left as you pass under a third black helicopter, and then pass a third red sign (which has a third arrow that is pointing to the curved left on it) on the right side of the track. You then have to turn to the right as you pass a hotel on the right side of the track, and a fourth (blue) sign which has an arrow that is pointing to the curved right on it upon the left side of the track - and you shall then pass under a third bridge, with a third electronic sign, which is displaying the text "CHECK POINT" on it, then pass a fifth blue sign which has another arrow that is pointing to the curved right on it on the left side of the track, and pass under a fourth bridge with a fourth electronic sign, which is displaying that text "TIME EXTENDED" on it. You then have to turn to the right, then to the left, then to the right again, as you pass over a suspension bridge, then turn to the left again, as you pass over another suspension bridge; you will then have to turn to the left for a third time as you pass a sixth blue sign which has a fourth arrow that is pointing to the curved left on it on the right side of the track, then pass under a fourth black helicopter and drive into another tunnel (which has lights on its left and right walls). Once you have come out of it you will have to turn to the right as you drive into a third tunnel (which, again, has lights upon its left and right walls); once you have come out of it, you will have to turn to the left, as you pass a seventh (back to red) sign which has a third arrow that is pointing to the curved right on it on the right side of the track. You'll then have to turn to the left again, as you pass a twelfth building, and an eighth red sign which has a fifth arrow that's pointing to the curved right on it on the left side of the track - and you will then pass under a fifth black helicopter, along with that aforementioned first bridge, to complete a full lap of the track (the electronic sign on that aforementioned second bridge will then display the text "TIME EXTENDED" once you have done so). Once you have completed three laps of the track by default (yet again, the arcade operator can set the required number of laps to be as high as six in this game, and for the last one, the aforementioned electronic sign on the aforementioned first bridge will display the text of "FINISH", instead of "CHECK POINT"), the screen shall fade out, then fade back in to a cutscene of your car driving around the track, for an additional time; the camera shall then cut to a shot of the giant television from the original "Ridge Racer" track displaying the text "RESULT" on the left side of its screen, with your race position (from 1st to 12th) under it, along with your lap times on its right side, and your total time at its bottom. Once it fades out, the screen shall fade back in to a shot of all eleven cars lined up in a field, in position order - and the text "GAME OVER" will then appear on the screen. If your total time is less than 2'45"765, the game will go into "track record" mode so you should enter your initials for this track's listing upon the "track record" table with pride; once you do so, the game shall go back into attract mode. This was to be the last arcade Ridge Racer for five years.
