You could try again with the M200 or Elan to get a feel for it. Especially with the Elan the game is much easier.

Useful to know: when you release acceleration in curves you'll move to the inside of the curve.

Yes, much easier as, even if short with some check points, I finished it on first try with the Elan-SE : 9'979'270
Will give a try with next car another day

Just see this post.
If I have manually created the tracks as stated in post #1, do I have the correct values for the round ?

Malko, yes. In post #3 you can see we changed the original values to the new ones, and post #4 you quoted is just saying what post #3 said already. All posts are correct. If you had the old set of difficulties, they would mostly be set 10 points higher on most tracks.

Thanks lifeschool. So it seems I have created the tracks after all these changes.

13'135'560 (6'567'780 x 2).
Less straightforward, but got it with M200.
The 1st track (last check point) is the one that is the most "difficult" for me. It took me five play to finish it .
Rest of the game is fine (even if I finished some tracks with time at 0 (thanks to the momentum of the car))

John : With the 'Esprit' I am practising the last track but I don't know how you can finish it !?
For me the second last check point is buggy ??

- When I go through it with 9 seconds left (the max I was able to achieve so far), I am given 6 seconds for a total of 15 seconds.
With them, if I drive well when I pass the last check point I am given some seconds for a total of 27 seconds to finish the race... BUT 27 seconds is not enough !!! I can never reach the finish... (was never able to have more than 27 seconds for this last part of the game).

- When I go through it with 0 second, I am given 10 seconds.. Why 10 when 0 and only 6 when 9 ??

As this round it not counting on the global board, do you have any tip ?

It's not bugged but just really tough. 27 seconds for the last stage aren't enough. You can only make it with 31+ seconds I think. So you just have to perform better in the first stages of this track...

arrrrgh 31 seconds... It's the 4 seconds I don't receive on this check point...
Well with all these cars driven by drunks and zigzagging in all directions, it's not easy
I already feel like I'm at the maximum
Thanks for your feedback John

It's not important to beat the final track though. Even if you do you'll probably have 0 seconds left meaning no bonus points. I got my 7.7M (x4) without getting to the end.
So please just have a go at the whole set with the Esprit.

I will john, I will
In the meantime I keep practising until either the 30th of June or I manage to beat that track (an to hell if I do not beat it during the race after the practice - I would have tried with fun)

Got it in practice !
Managed to have 32 seconds by passing the last check point.
Finished the race at 0 but as you said with 31 seconds (maybe 30) it's possible to finish the race with the car's momentum.
Now have to win the race also... but tomorrow, need a now.

Question to the experts of this game: on this last course, there are long tractors passing by. Is there an interest in passing under the trailer ? Does that add time ?
I didn't see anything in the doc about it and too focused on my run I wasn't able to keep an eye on the time while passing underneath...

@Harry : Wow ! Nice score with the M200

M200: 8,594,620 x 2 = 17,189,240






What proof do we have to provide of the car we choose? Does an inplay screenshot suffice (I'm guessing all three cars look visually different)?

We just trust each other, a screenshot at the end (or shortly before) doesn't hurt though.

Btw., regarding your aspect ratio again:
