Even if it's not extra time, having a bonus score is cool

Driven with the Esprit, but failed to complete the last stage.

Fun round but one unfortunate fact - a luck-of-the-draw 'yee-haw' on the final track with the Esprit is worth 2m points. I didn't get one.

EAB has many expert Lotus drivers, and hats off to them for finishing the game. This bonus round is definitely a Lotus Challenge.

That's true, we definitely have an advantage in experience there.

I'll correct myself. I've just practiced the track using the code. It took me about 15 attempts to get one, and when I did it was only worth 100,000, so it makes a difference, but not an enormous one.


The funniest thing about this track though is that I completed it the first two times I tried it. 20 attempts later, I haven't come close top doing it again.

Yeah not easy to be consistent on this track. Doesn't seem like Soulassassin is going to participate but at least we got this tricky track from his name.

Thanks for the investigation. 100k*4 is still significant but not that bad.

Good to see players doing their own investigation. I'd guess more than 3 crashes on the final track and its going to be game over. If you lose a second, that second is not carried forward to the next track, and so you'll always fall short of the line by 1 second. If you lose 3 seconds or more, I'd say the line isnt possible. Just a guess.
