Yes, prowler is correct. Practice mode with no opponents (though other bikers will still be on the track). Come join in the fun capehorn At the moment it seems like a 3-horse race

Do you need us to add up our totals ourselves? During Pinball Fantasies I think one of the mods said it wasn't necessary.

No problem... 497.9

When I added that up I missed out one of the minutes (came up with a total of 437.9), I realised I need to shave off an entire minute before my score becomes competitive

Keep practicing capehorn, with michelle you'll be surprised how many corners you can take at full speed! (most of them).

I am using Michelle ATM. Do you have any tips for the two corners I've highlighted below? I alway break for them both, I was wondering whether it's possible to do them any other way, and also what kind of upside there is for using manual gears (in terms of seconds per lap).

For the first one (top-right) you have to break a little, I usually get around it with a speed somewhere between 270-290 km/h.
For the second one (bottom-left), start as far right on the track as possible and flat out. Start breaking a fraction after the sign appears (indicating the left turn), turn as sharp as possible (you'll have to learn the timing) and around the apex of the corner (halfway through the hairpin) floor it. If done right you should come out of the corner (by the time you straighten up) with a speed around 290km/h or better.

Not used manual gears yet, so i can't answer that one. I was focusing on getting the best out of Michelle, before trying other drivers and manual gears. We do have another 2 weeks left

The main advantage of manual gears is better acceleration because you can rev each gear to maximum before shifting. So on tracks with corners that require shifting down gears you can maintain a higher speed and reach top speed faster on exit.

I don't think I'll be able to do any better than this without manual gears, and I'm not using those yet.
