SEGA World Drivers Championship Thoughts

John B. Marine | 7:51 PM | | Be the first to comment!
"SEGA World Drivers Championship" (or SWDC) delivers the thrills of the series known today as Super GT. As in, the Super GT long known as the JGTC . So don't confuse the two Super GTs. Regardless, you are looking at a racing game that can surely provide some epic racing action. I have never played this "SEGA World Drivers Championship," so I will only offer thoughts on it in this blog post. I hope you enjoy this look at "SEGA World Drivers Championship!"






SEGA World Drivers Championship


If you are educated in any way about SEGA, you may know of SEGA's illustrious history of racing games. At first, seeing that Super GT is the represented series of "SEGA World Drivers Championship," many will have recollections of "SEGA Super GT," better known as "SEGA SCUD Race." It was first released in 2018. There are differences of the Super GT in question. You see, "SEGA World Drivers Championship" is based on the Super GT known for a long time as the JGTC (All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship). The game looks beautiful since it is powered by Unreal Engine 4. Cabinets of SWDC can be linked together for multiplayer action. In fact, about eight players could be linked together for arcade madness. Some tournaments with this game are contested with linked cabinets.

Please note that "SEGA World Drivers Championship" is a simulation racer. Though SEGA is better known for their arcade style racing games, various tactics in more arcade style games will not work in SEGA. So forget about trying to intentionally overshoot corners or trying to drift cars into turns. Think of this as a proper sim-style game, such as the likes of "SEGA Touring Car Championship" or the "SEGA GT" series.

To my knowledge, this game is NOT available in the United States.


The Basics.

In "SEGA World Drivers Championship," you can compete with any team and race on any number of tracks. You can only compete with a lot of GT300 level teams early on before being able to drive for the better teams as well as the GT500 teams. To my knowledge, most of the courses in this game are fictional while there are some real-world courses, such as Fuji International Speedway. This game does not follow the proper Super GT championship and all of the different tracks raced in the series.

You then compete in any number of races on any sort of track. Races go from a rolling start. Your task is to try to get to the front as quickly as possible. To progress quickly, try to finish as high as you can while also racing as clean as possible. Accomplishing these feats will allow you to level up faster. You will not be penalized for any seriously bad driving, but you just won't get through the game faster driving poorly. Not only do you level up, but your team also levels up.


My Final Thoughts.

"SEGA World Drivers Championship" is a very exciting simulation-style racing game. While it is not any hardcore simulation racer, it is still an enjoyable and fun sim racer for arcades. Being to progress wonderfully through GT300 and up to GT500 teams makes this an arcade experience that you can enjoy for quite some time. Remember that this is a simulation racer. If arcade thrills are your thing, you won't get them here. Instead, you are getting intense GT racing from the always intense Super GT series in SEGA World Drivers Championship.

If there was an arcade room that had this game, I would love to play it!


Video Preview.

For video insight into "SEGA World Drivers Championship," here is a video showcasing game play as it happens. It's a long one, so don't view this one if you don't have a lot of time on your hands:

blur

John B. Marine | 10:21 PM | | Be the first to comment!
From the makers of the Project Gotham Racing series, "blur" was a 2010 racing game from 2010 all about "powered-up racing." It is almost like Need for Speed meets Mario Kart. This blog post is about the unique, and somewhat forgotten racing game "blur." I hope to share with you my thoughts on this game.






blur


Let's talk about blur.

blur PlayStation 3 PS3
^ from: (Amazon) - Are you ready for powered-up racing in anything-goes action?

BIZARRE Creations developed "blur" and was published by Activision. This is the same developer responsible for the highly successful Project Gotham Racing series. This game was available for the PlayStation 3, XBOX 360, and Windows. This game takes you on a world tour of "powered-up racing" with a handful of different licensed automobiles. The main single player campaign has to taking on a number of different top racing talent to try to prove you're the best racer in the world. There is also a multiplayer campaign for which you can challenge others from around the world in fierce racing competition. Powerups can be used to try to gain an advantage against your opposition. These powerups include things like Nitro, Shunts, Mines, Bolts, Barges, and more. Every race takes place in real-world locations in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Environments are varied as well. You can go from burning up the streets of Los Angeles to driving through the dirt roads of Amboy. You could be swerving around Barcelona to drifting on the streets of Tokyo. You're going to be kept busy, guaranteed.


Race Types.

There are multiple ways to prove yourself in blur. Here are some of the event types:

• Race - This is the most basic of events. For an event to be successful, you must place 3rd or better. Do whatever it takes to win.

• Destruction - In this event, your job is to defeat a host of drone cars using the Bolt powerup. Time bonuses are added for wrecking cars with these Bolt attacks. Be warned that wrecked drones will try to counterattack with their own moves after being defeated. Score as many points as you can before time runs out to win these events. You must place 3rd or better for an event to be a successful one.

• Checkpoint - In this event, your opponent is the clock. Your job is to try to complete a time trial around a track in the quickest time possible. Use Nitro and pick up Stopwatches to try to clear the course quicker. You must finish the race before time runs out and place 3rd or better. How high you rank in these events depends on how much time to spare is there. So what you want to do is finish the event with more than 20 seconds left (even if 20.01 seconds remaining).

• One-on-One - You can earn new cars and new Mods by challenging racers to a One-on-One. It is you against the main rival of a certain series in a one-on-one racing duel. You can only unlock One-on-One events by meeting the demands of that individual. You will know which demands must be met from the menu screen. Once the objectives have been reached, you will be challenged to a One-on-One race against that individual. When you compete in a One-on-One, the race is restricted to a specific car. There are two ways you can win a One-on-One event: you must either cross the finish line before your opponent does, or you wreck your opponent. Victory in a One-on-One event will give you a new car and a Mod you can use. You will also earn the car of that One-on-One opponent upon victory.

I have only done Single Player, so you're on your own in knowing about Multiplayer racing events.


Racing Tips.

Here are a few things to know about blur if you want to succeed:

• Take advantage of the Difficulty settings. Racing in harder difficulties will make the game tougher, but there is no shame in keeping things on Easy. You are not required to complete every race under Hard difficulty.

• Try to earn those Lights. You can earn a total of seven Lights for each regular event and eight Lights for One-on-One victories. The seven Lights for basic race events comes from placing 3rd or better, followed by earning a certain number of Fans and completing Fan Runs. Try to complete as many of these challenges with Gold results to clear all of the racing objectives.

• Earn Fans to unlock new cars. Ways to earn Fans include exciting performances in races, completing Fan Demands, and completing Fan Runs. Some races have a set number of Fans you must try to gain to earn a Light. Do whatever you can to meet these Fan demands. A Fan Run has you trying to clear 12 gates. To gain passing credit, you must clear all 12 gates within a set amount of time. When you come across a Fan Demand, you must complete a dynamic task within a certain amount of time. For example, you may be asked to reach a certain speed, or you may be asked to do something like a Reverse Shunt or a long-distance Bolt. You earn more fans if these objectives are completed. If you fail to clear these objectives, those Fan icons will return until you eventually complete them within the course of the race.

• Some powerups have forward and backward usages. Tilt back the analog stick to fire certain powerups backwards, such as Shunts. Tilt the analog stick forward to fire items forward, such as Mines. You can even use certain powerups while using Nitro, drifting, or over jumps. You earn certain extra skill points for executing certain manuevers while also using certain powerups. Try things like a Drift Barge, for instance.

• Unless you are in a One-on-One, getting Wrecked does not signal the end of the race. You will, however, lose a lot of time and ground should you get Wrecked by someone else or of your own doing. Find Shield powerups to prevent from taking damage, or (more importantly) find Repair powerups to fully restore your car's health.

• Take into account what track you will be racing on. If the course you are racing has more off-road sections than on-road sections, it is best you use an Off-Road vehicle. Off-Road vehicles do not lose as much speed in off-road sections of track.

• Re-run as many different events as you like. Try to improve your score and even complete more of the Sticker objectives as much as you can.


With that out of the way, let me to go some Final Thoughts.




blur: Final Thoughts


blur is a very competitive and very fun game. Even if a bit overlooked or forgotten, blur is the kind of arcade game that I think Mario Kart fans can appreciate. While not entirely lighthearted fun, it is also not a game that takes itself too seriously. It is also a great game that doesn't occur in some end-of-the-world setting. The game even looks amazing while also running with little or no hitches. Make the game as easy or as difficult as you like. This is a solid title to me. If you want something more refreshing than a modern Need for Speed title, try "blur" if you haven't already.

Want to try "blur" for yourself? Try these items (participation is voluntary, but would be appreciated):




That's all. Happy shopping! :)





I hope you have yourself a happy and safe day/night. Hopefully you enjoyed your time here. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Gran Turismo 6 One-Make Races

John B. Marine | 10:35 PM | | Be the first to comment!
Gran Turismo 6 has One-Make Races you can unlock and take part in. These races will test your racing ability, granted you have the correct car. Having the same car means it comes down to the driver as to who will win. You wish your lucky stars it's you who wins the race. I'm here in this blog post to feature the One-Make Races of Gran Turismo 6. Welcome to "John's Race Space!"

About the Label: "One-Make Races"

Posts under this Label are all about the One-Make Races of Gran Turismo titles. Rather than a collection of cars all racing at once, these events are more about a collective gathering of a certain vehicle racing against itself or different variations of the same vehicle.






Gran Turismmo 6: One-Make Races at a Glance


Gran Turismo 6 One-Make Races
^ When the cars are of the same and from the same make, who claims victory in a race comes down to the driver!

One-Make Races are nothing new in the Gran Turismo realm. In fact, it was Gran Turismo 2 in which this style of racing made its debut. One-Make Races are races specifically for a certain car. Some One-Make Races can allow for the player to choose between any model of the car that fits regulations. For example, a One-Make Race involving the Mazda Miata/MX-5 may allow for the player to choose between any model of the Miata/MX-5 to compete in the event. So you may choose the ND-model Miata to compete against older or younger versions of the car. In some cases, a One-Make Race may even allow for either normal variants of a specific car or racing variants of that car.

The one thing you want to be mindful of is to pick a certain car and then worry about if any level of tuning is allowed. If there are no restrictions, you can almost basically max out your car and get an easy win. Gran Turismo 6, however, doesn't allow for too much liberties. You have to keep your car within the Performance Points (PP) limit. The safe thing you can do is upgrade certain specifications that do not affect PP, such as suspension and transmission options. Most of what will affect PP is with modifications to horsepower or weight. You will need to dial in ballast or tone down the horsepower if you are over the PP limit.

Since these are a set of races involving a specific car, what you may want to do is purchase some of these vehicles early so you can race them in the respective One-Make Races. If you need to enhance the performance of each required car, do so within the PP regulations. Every One-Make Race requires Sports tires except for the International A One-Make Races, where you can use Racing tires.

This will be a single post featuring all of the One-Make Races in Gran Turismo 6. You will need to unlock these events through earning Stars in each level of racing that has One-Make Races. There are no One-Make Races in Novice, Super levels, or the Red Bull X Challenge. You can not earn any Stars for success in these One-Make Races. Therefore, these are mostly side races you can take part in to earn more Credits.




Gran Turismo 6: One-Make Races


This is the main section regarding One-Make Races. The material in parentheses () represents the level in which the One-Make Race is raced under.


Prius Cup (B).

PP: 400 or less
Tires: Sports Hard or Less
Car(s): 2009 Prius G, 2003 Toyota PRIUS G Touring Selection (J), 2002 Toyota PRIUS G (J), ???? Toyota PRIUS Touring Car

A Toyota Prius is not going to make you the coolest person in car discussions. The Toyota Prius is the world's most well-known hybrid car. The Prius debuted in Gran Turismo 2. The ones you'll be using are of the modern Prius. So prepare yourself to take on this One-Make Race challenge around England's Silverstone Circuit. Only here, you will be racing the National circuit. Victory shouldn't be too hard to come by. If you really want to make a statement, invest in the Prius Touring Car.

BRONZE: 3,700 Cr.

Track: Fuji Speedway F

Car(s): 2012 Toyota 86 GT, 2012 86 GT 15 Anniv., 2012 Subaru BRZ S, 2012 Scion FR-S, 2013 Toyota 86 "Racing"

In the late 2000s and early 2010s, a joint effort between Toyota and Subaru led to the creation of an affordable sports car with a boxer (or horizontally-opposed) engine. That creation came in three forms- the Toyota 86, the Scion FR-S, and the Subaru BR-Z. Whichever one tickles your fancy, you will be racing this modern boxer sports car around the modern Fuji Speedway. You can choose any model of this car that is within regulations. Though, if you want to be the safest, you may want to bring the 2013 Toyota 86 "Racing" to this One-Make event.

Prize:
GOLD: 7,340 Cr.
SILVER: 4,770 Cr.
BRONZE: 3,670 Cr.


BMW 1 Series Race Meeting (A).

The BMW 1 Series is the entry level series of automobiles from BMW. The 1 Series debuted in 2004. These days, unfortunately, the new entry level BMW series is the 2 Series. What you will be racing here are 1 Series BMWs around the Grand Prix configuration of the Nürburgring. These cars handle well and are not too powerful. So you should be able to win this One-Make Race without fearing the cars snapping on you at any given moment.

Prize:
GOLD: 22,700 Cr.
SILVER: 14,800 Cr.
BRONZE: 11,300 Cr.


Civic Sprint (A).

The Honda Civic has long been an amazing economy car with some sporty performance. A lot of people were awed of it being a tuner favorite, especially among "The Fast and the Furious." Honda Civic tuners are usually a dime a dozen. In this One-Make Race, you wlll be racing the Honda Civic around the Suzuka Circuit.

Prize:
GOLD: 18,700 Cr.
SILVER: 12,200 Cr.
BRONZE: 9,400 Cr.


Roadster Cup (A).

Track: Tsukuba Circuit
Laps: 8

PP: 400 or less

Car(s): 2007 Mazda Roadster RS (NC), 2004 Mazda Roadster 1600 NR-A (NB), 2004 Mazda Roadster 1800 RS (NB), 2000 Mazda Roadster 1800 RS (NB), 1998 Mazda Roadster 1.8 RS (NB), 1997 Mazda Eunos Roadster SR-Limited (NA), 1995 Mazda Eunos Roadster S-Special Type I (NA), 1995 Eunos Roadster VR-Limited (NA), 1993 Mazda Eunos Roadster J-Limited II (NA), 1993 Mazda Eunos Roadster V-Special Type II (NA), 1991 Mazda Eunos Roadster J-Limited, 1989 Mazda Eunos Roadster (NA Special Package), 2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata 1600 NR-A (NB, J), 2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata 1800 RS (NB, J), 2000 Mazda MX-5 Miata 1800 RS (NB, J), 1998 Mazda MX-5 Miata 1.8 RS (NB, J), 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata SR-Limited (NA, J), 1995 Mazda MX-5 Miata S-Special Type I (NA, J), 1995 Mazda Miata MX-5 Miata VR-Limited, (NA, J), 1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata J-Limited II (NA, J), 1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata V-Special Type II (NA, J), 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata J-Limited (NA, J), 1989 Mazda MX-5 Miata (NA), ???? Roadster Touring Car

You either love or loathe the Mazda Miata/MX-5. A lot of people do because it's slow and "girly." I say it is still one of the most affordable sports cars you can buy. It won't cost you an arm and a leg to own and enjoy one of these cars. What you WILL need to do, though, is take one of these machines around the tight and short confines of Tsukuba Circuit. This is nothing new if you are a Gran Turismo veteran to race Miatas/MX-5s around Tsukuba, because you've been doing it since Gran Turismo 4 around this track. Complete eight laps around this course in your Mazda Miata/MX-5. Try to go for the win!

Prize:
GOLD: 21,110 Cr.
SILVER: 13,700 Cr.
BRONZE: 10,500 Cr.


Elise Trophy (IB).

Track: Brands Hatch Grand Prix
Laps: 3

PP: 550 or less
Tires: Sports Hard or less
Car(s): 2004 Lotus Elise 111R, 2011 Lotus Elise, 2003 Lotus Elise 111S, 2001 Lotus Elise Type 72, 2000 Lotus Elise, 1998 Lotus Elise Sport 190, Lotus Elise 1996, 2004 Lotus Elise 111R Race Car, 1996 Lotus Elise Race Car

"Light makes might." The modern embodiment of what Colin Chapman propsed to the automotive world is done so today with the Lotus Elise. You will have the honor of racing these lightweight sports cars around the historic Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. Bear in mind that the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit packs a lot of race track in such minimal space. The corners can be quite tricky. While the Elise is no ferocious beast of a sports car, you still need to keep your lightweight Elise between the white lines as much as you can. Now do Lotus proud by winning this one.

Prize:
GOLD: 41,000 Cr.
SILVER: 26,600 Cr.
BRONZE: 20,500 Cr.


Corvette Festival (IB).

Track: Willow Springs International Raceway - Big Willow
Laps: 5

PP: 664 or less
Tires: Sports Soft or Less
Car(s): 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7), 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) 15 Anniv., ???? Chevrolet Corvette C7 Test Prototype, 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (C6), 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (C6), 2006 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 (C6), 2004 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 (C5), 2000 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 (C5), 1996 Chevrolet Corvette GRAND SPORT (C4), 1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 (C4), 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3), 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L46 350 (C3), 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (C2), 1963 Chevrolet Corvette (C32) 15th Anniv., 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, 2009 Corvette ZR-1 (C6) LM Race Car, 2006 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 (C6) LM Race Car, 2000 Chevrolet Corvette C5-R (C5), 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C2) Race Car, 1959 Chevrolet Corvette StingRay Racer Concept

America's sports car is the Chevrolet Corvette. You will be racing a Corvette against Corvettes around Southern California's Willow Springs International Raceway. You are actually about an hour's drive north of Los Angeles with a track that seems like it is in the middle of nowhere. This track will surprise you if you take its challenge lightly. Put forth a solid drive in whatever Corvette you choose to race in this race meeting.

Prize:
GOLD: 45,300 Cr.
SILVER: 29,400 Cr.
BRONZE: 22,700 Cr.


Dance With the Aventadors (IA).

Track: Circuito de Madrid
Laps: 5

PP: 610 or less
Tires: Racing Hard or less
Car(s): 2011 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4

How fitting- Running of the Bulls in Spain... only these bulls are fierce Lamborghini Aventadors roaming the streets of Madrid, Spain! This is the only One-Make Race that happens on a temporary street circuit. Madrid is a tough and grinding course. It can be tough to try to race a solid line here considering the barriers and the tight corners and hairpins. While the Aventador is fast and powerful, it is not exactly a handling gem. You may need to do some tuning to get this Italian beast to handle as good as its horsepower and speed. You can slap on some Racing Hard tires to help in the handling department, though.

Prize:
GOLD: 68,900 Cr.
SILVER: 44,800 Cr.
BRONZE: 34,400 Cr.


Ferrari 458 Challenge (IA).

Track: Autodromo Nazionale Monza
Laps: 4

PP: 590 or less
Tires: Racing Hard or Less
Car(s): 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia

Autodromo Nazionale Monza is one of the world's oldest race tracks, first raced in the 1920s. Forza Ferrari! You will be racing the 458 Italia around today's Monza. Something to keep in mind is how fast this track is despite some very decisive corners. The one thing you need to be careful of is to make sure you avoid cutting the chicanes and some of the other corners.

Prize:
GOLD: 64,700 Cr.
SILVER: 42,000 Cr.
BRONZE: 32,300 Cr.


GT-R Maestros (IA).

Track: Nürburgring Nordschleife
Laps: 1

PP: 650
Tires: Racing Hard or Less
Car(s): ???? Nissan GT-R R35 Touring Car, 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition, 2009 Nissan GT-R SpecV, 2007 Nissan GT-R, 2013 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 N24 Schulze Motorsport, 2013 GT-R NISMO GT3, 2013 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 Base Model, 2013 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 15th Anniv., 2012 Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy, 2011 Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motorsport, ???? Nissan GT-R Concept LM Race Car, 2007 GT-R Black Mask, 2005 Nissan GT-R Proto, 2001 Nissan GT-R Concept (Tokyo Motor Show 2001)

The last of the One-Make Races takes you on a romp around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. You can use any of the Nissan GT-R/Skyline models that are eligible for entry here, but it is recommended you get the Nissan GT-R R35 Touring Car, since that is what the opposition will mostly use. The GT-R Touring Car handles the Nürburgring Nordschleife very well. You may be rather surprised how well it is able to tackle the many corners and tricky sections of this famed German automotive battleground. Do your best to try to pass all of the other cars and leave the Nordschleife with a One-Make Race win.

Prize:
GOLD: 61,300 Cr.
SILVER: 39,800 Cr.
BRONZE: 30,600 Cr.


That's all! Good luck to you in all of these races!

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - Super

John B. Marine | 11:59 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
Mission Races now are at the toughest and with the fastest cars. You went through four of them, and now the fifth and final set awaits you. Become a racing genius or fall. That is your choice. So let's make you a Champion, eh? New post ready to go!






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races


The Mission Races test your ability to pass cars while also clearing the course within a given par time. These events will make you try to drive properly while making sure to avoid making crucial mistakes. Passing a car or cars is only part of clearing the Mission Races. You need to try to pass your opponent(s) while also making sure to clear the course in a given time. So treat these Mission Races like License Tests. You can not earn any Stars for completion of Mission Races, but you can earn money for clearing each Mission Race. Try to earn Gold in each Mission Race if you can.

Each Mission Race consists of five events. The first four events are all section-based events using a certain section of the given facility. The final Mission Race is a lap-based event around a certain track. Success in the Mission Races involve overtaking vehicles while also clearing the course in a fast time. It is not, however, required you pass all the vehicles in the given run. You just need to clear the event as quickly as you can. If you commit any of these fouls during the course of a Mission Race:

• you completely leave the course
• you collide hard into a barrier
• you hit an obstacle (such as a cone)
• you collide hard into a rival car

...your run will be disqualified, and you must try that Mission Race again. If you fail to complete the Mission Race within the par time, you will not receive any award. So make sure to complete the race in time and try to complete it with a quick time.


GT6 Mission Races: The Series.

This section will be edited once all blog posts on each Mission Race set are all completed. Here is the series as slated:

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National B
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National A
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International B
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International A
• Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - Super (YOU ARE HERE)

There are no Mission Races for the National License. Each of the above links will be edited as posts for each one is complete. You need to have a certain number of Stars in each level of racing in Gran Turismo 6 to unlock the Mission Races.






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races: Super


Gran Turismo 6 Super Mission Races
^ This final set of Mission Races may be challenging, but you can do it! Hang in there!

This is the last set of Mission Races. Let's complete them all!


S-1: Prototype Racing Car Battle.

Car: 1991 Mazda 787B
Course: Circuit de la Sarthe 2013
Mission Type: Section

Some question whether prototype sportscars or Formula 1 style cars are the best racing cars ever conceived. You will be racing the Mazda 787B, which won the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans, and at its time, the first Japanese manufacturer to win Le Mans outright. You will be racing the modern Circuit de la Sarthe ranging from the entrance of the Porsche Curves to the Start/Finish line in this Mission Race. Your four-rotor beast will be singing soprano style as you drive fiercely through this section. Just make sure to pass the other two cars you share the track with in addition to trying to clear this Mission Race. The Porsche Curves are tricky to navigate. Pick your spot carefully if you are trying to pass one of the two cars in this challenge. In fact, you may want to pass the first car during (or even after) the Porsche Curves rather than before entering the Porsche Curves. The rest of the way has a bunch of extra tricky kinks to unwind your car if you are not careful. Most importantly, try not to leave the course even with your monstrous Mazda.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 43.500
• SILVER: 45.000
• BRONZE: 49.000


S-2: Dream Car Battle.

Car: ???? Citroen GT by Citroen Race Car
Course: Special Stage Route 5
Mission Type: Section

Two-thirds of Special Stage Route 5 will be used in this Mission Race. You will be using the futuristic Citroen GT by Citroen on these city highways at night. Something to remember as you are weaving through the downtown buildings is that you are racing around a street course with fairly sufficient lighting and not too challenging corners. It will take a lot of patience on your behalf to try to properly navigate this city street course while also making sure not to whack the barriers on either side of the course or any of the two cars that share the track with you.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 50.500
• SILVER: 53.000
• BRONZE: 58.000


S-3: White Hot - Chamonix Showdown.

Car: ???? Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Rally Car
Course: Chamonix - Main
Mission Type: Section

Let's get one thing straight- this is NOT the Chamonix you are used to from Gran Turismo 4. The location may have returned, but the track is the same one you recall from Gran Turismo 5. Your mount this time is the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X in rally racing trim. Instead of dirt or gravel for off-roading, you are racing on snow and ice. Snow and ice have much less traction than dirt or gravel. You thankfully have a car that can take on these surfaces properly. So make good use of this Mitsubishi as you navigate your way around this treacherous, snowy French course. Three other cars are on the track for this challenge. Be careful when closing in on the other drivers as they kick up snow. You can draw in too close to where you can initiate car contact and end up being disqualified. Try to stay within the snow banks as much as you can. Finally, be extra careful taking on the tough set of corners before reaching the Finish of this section.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 1:09.500
• SILVER: 1:11.000
• BRONZE: 1:15.000


S-4: Close Combat - Battle at Brands Hatch.

Car: 2004 Lotus Elise 111R
Course: Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit
Mission Type: Section

You are back at Branda Hatch for another Mission Race. This time, though, you are using the Grand Prix course. You will be racing almost all of the Indy course before transitioning to the Grand Prix course. That is the makeup of this section. Your car is the Lotus Elise 111R. While it is not the best offering from Lotus, it is a plenty capable automobile for you to race around this section of Brands Hatch. It can be easy to make a mistake around this track, so make sure you keep mistakes to a minimum handling around this course while trying to pass the three other cars.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 40.800
• SILVER: 42.000
• BRONZE: 45.000


S-5: Old Meets New - Ford GT Showdown!

Car: 1966 Ford GT40 Mark 1
Course: Nürburgring Nordschleife
Mission Type: 1 Lap

This is the final Mission Race challenge. You must race one lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a Ford GT. People often call the Nordschleife as "Green Hell." To most others, it is driving Heaven. I already reminded you how much I love the Nordschleife in my International A Mission Race blog post, so let me just say you will enjoy this challenge if you love this track. This is a very long track with many corners and narrow roads. Matters won't be helped much considering you are racing a vintage sports car. It doesn't have the modern technologies and driving dynamics that your opponent Ford GT has, but you still have a capable racing machine that can lap this course fairly well. My biggest piece of advice to you- learn the track and learn the car. Don't focus on Gold until you have mastered both. To get Gold, you are going to have to be near perfect around a course that is almost 13 miles long with many corners getting in your way. Take your time. In addition to racing a brutally difficult race course, time is passing rapidly as evening becomes night. The race actually start at 15:00 (3:00 PM 12-hour time). You have SOME leeway in this race because you can actually go off-course and not be disqualified. Other than that, colliding with any barrier or the other car will disqualify you. Take advantage of this liberty especially if you are terrible at the Nordschlife like I am. Long story short... don't try to be a hero/heroine here. Just get to the finish line by any means necessary without getting disqualified. GOOD LUCK clearing this one- you're going to need it (and then some).

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 7:50.000
• SILVER: 8:00.000
• BRONZE: 9:00.000


If you cleared all of the Mission Races, congratulations! Your quest (at least among the Mission Races) is over. You can always go back to any of the Mission Races to improve your times.





This post concludes the set of Mission Races in Gran Turismo 6. I wish you well in completing all of these challenges. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International A

John B. Marine | 11:49 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
Gran Turismo 6 is not going to get any easier now that you are in the International A Mission Race events. Polyphony Digital and Kazunori Yamauchi won't do you any favors in this one. Time again to demonstrate your racing skill in some tough Mission Races. I'll describe what to expect, your job is to clear each challenge to the best of your ability. Sounds good? Then let's go!






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races


The Mission Races test your ability to pass cars while also clearing the course within a given par time. These events will make you try to drive properly while making sure to avoid making crucial mistakes. Passing a car or cars is only part of clearing the Mission Races. You need to try to pass your opponent(s) while also making sure to clear the course in a given time. So treat these Mission Races like License Tests. You can not earn any Stars for completion of Mission Races, but you can earn money for clearing each Mission Race. Try to earn Gold in each Mission Race if you can.

Each Mission Race consists of five events. The first four events are all section-based events using a certain section of the given facility. The final Mission Race is a lap-based event around a certain track. Success in the Mission Races involve overtaking vehicles while also clearing the course in a fast time. It is not, however, required you pass all the vehicles in the given run. You just need to clear the event as quickly as you can. If you commit any of these fouls during the course of a Mission Race:

• you completely leave the course
• you collide hard into a barrier
• you hit an obstacle (such as a cone)
• you collide hard into a rival car

...your run will be disqualified, and you must try that Mission Race again. If you fail to complete the Mission Race within the par time, you will not receive any award. So make sure to complete the race in time and try to complete it with a quick time.


GT6 Mission Races: The Series.

This section will be edited once all blog posts on each Mission Race set are all completed. Here is the series as slated:

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National B
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National A
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International B
• Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International A (YOU ARE HERE)
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - Super

There are no Mission Races for the National License. Each of the above links will be edited as posts for each one is complete. You need to have a certain number of Stars in each level of racing in Gran Turismo 6 to unlock the Mission Races.






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races: International A


Gran Turismo 6 International A Mission Races
^ You're in some trouble now! Try to prove yourself in this set of Mission Races.

Let's see how great you really are with this set of Mission Races.


IA-1: Super GT500 Class Battle.

Car: 1997 Toyota Castol Tom's Supra
Course: Suzuka Circuit
Mission Type: Section

The Super GT series used to be known as the JGTC- the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship. You will be racing a car from the JGTC time around mostly Suzuka East. The course ends under the overpass of this Figure-8 (or "Figure of 8" as some call it) course. This class of car you are competing with is the GT500 class, in which cars are usually no more powerful than 500 brake horsepower. You are racing against two other GT500 class racing cars. Nothing comes easy at Suzuka. Got to earn everything. It may take a lot of work to try to pass both cars in this Mission Race. You can handle it, though, right?

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 47.200
• SILVER: 49.000
• BRONZE: 54.000


IA-2: Group GT3 Battle.

Car: 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3
Course: Nürburgring GP/F
Mission Type: Section

The next two Mission Races have you racing around the Nürburgring. I can tell you personally that I am NOT good at the Nürburgring. So I am not going to lie to you about how easy it is to race this course. Starting with this Mission Race, you will be racing the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 around a portion of the Nürburgring Grand Prix course. You will mostly be using the second half of this course ending after the chicane that leads onto the Pit Road entrance (or leading to the entry to the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring when any of the Nordschleife configurations are used). Regardless, the SLS AMG GT3 is a mostly a solid GT3 racing car, but it has a good deal of understeer dialed into its handling characteristics. Try to drive carefully and quickly to pass the other two cars.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 42.800
• SILVER: 44.000
• BRONZE: 47.000


IA-3: The Future's Dark - Nürburgring Battle.

Car: 2013 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 N24 Schulze Motorsport
Course: Nürburgring 24h
Mission Type: Section

NOW is the time to start quaking in your shoes (if you're wearing any) racing the Nürburgring Nordschleife. You can sort of think of this Mission Race as using the opening of the Nordschleife from the Grand Prix circuit as the starting point and then using the first segment of the Nordschleife like from the AMG Driving Academy in Gran Turismo 5. I am not good at the Nürburgring, and I am even worse around any configuration using the Nordschleife. So my advice is this- be thankful you have a car that can properly handle the Nordschleife instead of trying to use something like a Le Mans prototype or some high-end formula race car. The road narrows up and has some challenging corners when you race on the Nordschleife. Its narrow and twisty roads make this one of the most challenging courses in the world. It is recommended you try to learn how to race the Nordschleife proper before trying to take on this challenge. I loathe racing the Nordschleife, but I hope you will be able to clear this challenge as best as you can despite my whining.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 1:12.800
• SILVER: 1:15.000
• BRONZE: 1:19.000


IA-4: Ruling the Rain - Skirmish at Spa.

Car: ???? Skyline GT-R R34 Touring Car
Course: Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
Mission Type: Section

For the first time, you not only have to deal with passing your opponents, but also dealing with Mother Nature. The legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium is the track you will be racing and under wet conditions. Racing in the rain means you must deal with having limited visibility and a loss of traction. Even having the most grippy racing tires will not guarantee you success in properly racing around this Grand Prix motor racing track. This Mission Race utilizes the Start/Finish line after the super-tight first corner. You are mostly racing the first half of Spa-Francorchamps in this challenge. Try to get Eau Rouge right followed by the two turns after the long romp after Eau Rouge. The most important thing to remember is that the track is wet with rain falling. Traction and racing discipline are musts to clearing this challenge and passing the other three cars on the track. You also must deal with rain water being kicked up while the other cars are on track. This will NOT be easy, so take your time and drive carefully.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 1:04.500
• SILVER: 1:07.000
• BRONZE: 1:11.000


IB-5: Old Meets New - Ferrari Showdown!

Car: 1971 Ferrari Dino 246 GT
Course: Apricot Hill Raceway
Mission Type: 1 Lap

You will not be able to complete the IA Mission Races unless you clear the previous four events along with this one. You will be racing the Ferrari Dino 246 GT, named for Enzo Ferrari's son, Dino. It is an absolutely beautiful classic car. You're racing a car from the 1970s, but your opponent is one of the latest (at the time of this game) Ferraris- the Ferrari 458 Italia. Remember Apricot Hill? You will be racing this track using your classic '70s sports car. Unlike the Mission Race under night conditions with the KTM, you will be racing this course in broad daylight, and you will also be racing a full lap around Apricot Hill. Try to keep the Dino 246 GT under control in the corners. You can easily spin this car out if you are not careful. I know full well because... this beautiful car that I love so much... happened to be the first car I rolled over and put on its roof in Gran Turismo 6. So take caution racing this thing!

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 1:45.500
• SILVER: 1:48.000
• BRONZE: 1:53.000


Another one down. Great job! But guess what? There's one more Mission Race set ready to test your skills to the extreme!





This post is just one in a series of posts lined up regarding the Mission Races of GT6. There is still a ways to go in discussing this series of races, so stay tuned to JRS for more in the series! Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International B

John B. Marine | 11:24 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
By now, you probably realize the higher levels of Gran Turismo equate to tougher challenges. Well, International B Mission Races will be tougher than anything you've faced so far in the National level Mission Races. You still can take these events! Allow me to welcome you to the International level of Mission Races in Gran Turismo 6. I'll be here to introduce you to these challenging events.






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races


The Mission Races test your ability to pass cars while also clearing the course within a given par time.

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races: International B


Gran Turismo 6 International A Mission Races
^ Prepare to be tested on multiple levels here with multiple challenges here in the International B Mission Race set..

If you want to test your abilities further, be sure you're prepared for what is ahead of you in the International B Mission Races!


IB-1: Supercar Battle.

Car: 1994 Cizeta V16T
Course: Autumn Ring
Mission Type: Section

You were probably one of the ones who complained about a lack of real supercars in Gran Turismo 4 when you saw the Cizeta V16T. Or maybe you thought this was some fantasy car. Well, you're wrong on both counts if you felt this way before. This supercar actually exists and is a proper supercar. Put this supercar to good use by passing the opposing cars around Autumn Ring. You will be racing from past the Start/Finish line of the Autumn Ring Mini course to approaching pit entrance of the Autumn Ring main course. Autumn Ring is not an easy course. Screwing up is almost entirely too easy. So make sure to stay on the road as much as you can and try to find a decent line that will take you around the course properly. Also, make sure you properly handle this supercar around the corners of this twisty course.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 36.500
• SILVER: 37.500
• BRONZE: 41.000


IB-2: Historic Race Car Battle.

Car: 1966 Jaguar XJ13
Course: Circuit de la Sarthe 2013
Mission Type: Section

The course is modern, but the cars are not. Care is needed when racing an older car. This is your first Mission Race using a proper race car. The course uses the section between past Turn 1 of Circuit de la Sarthe to the tricky Tertre Rouge. You are battling two other classic beauties in this Mission Race. It will be tough passing both cars while trying to wrestle this Jaguar around this section.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 34.500
• SILVER: 36.000
• BRONZE: 40.000


IB-3: Kicking Up Dust - Battle for Toscana.

Car: 1986 Audi quattro S1 Rally Car
Course: Toscana
Mission Type: Section

From your first race car Mission Race, you now enter your first off-road Mission Race. You will be doing so racing a Group B rally beast- the Audi quattro S1. This course utilizes the end of the very long sweeping right to the long backstretch of Toscana. If you want to make it through this lovely Italian countryside course, you'd better utilize this Audi for all its worth. Remember that it takes a different set of skills to properly navigate a rally course. One thing to be careful of is trying not to get caught up in the dust being kicked up by the other three rally cars. Drive this course carefully and try to make timely and efficient passes.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 51.000
• SILVER: 53.000
• BRONZE: 56.000


IB-4: Motorsports Heaven - Battle for Ascari.

Car: 1992 Ferrari F40
Course: Ascari Full Track
Mission Type: Section

Ascari is a permanent race course in a Spanish resort. There also used to be a British car manufacturer named Ascari. You will be racing on the Ascari full course with a very popular and very powerful '90s supercar. Let the Ferrari F40 sing around this twisty and challenging race course. This Ferrari, however, is not very easy to handle. You can push its limits so much to where the back end can snap on you powering out of corners. So don't do anything too foolish to where you are unable to recover and pass the other three cars. Take your time on this one.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 43.300
• SILVER: 45.000
• BRONZE: 49.000


IB-5: Old Meets New - Lamborghini Showdown!

Car: 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 Bertone Prototype CN.0706
Course: Brands Hatch Indy Circuit
Mission Type: 2 Laps

This course has you racing one of my personal favorite Lamborghinis of all time- the Miura. The track you will be racing is Brands Hatch Indy. Since this is a fairly short course, you will be required to race two laps around this course instead of just one. This time, you are racing an OLDER car against a newer car. The Miura would stand no chance against the Aventador on long or fast tracks. Considering this track is fairly short, you might be able to pull a pass on the Aventador halfway around Brands Hatch on lap 1. Remember that getting Gold requires completing TWO solid laps around this course. So once you make the pass on the Aventador, continue to concentrate on utilizing the Miura's capabilities to successfully complete the Mission Race. Don't let that modern Lambo scare you! Oh, and remember- respect your elders.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 1:48.000
• SILVER: 1:50.000
• BRONZE: 1:56.000


Congratulations if you managed to clear these Mission Races!

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National A

John B. Marine | 11:04 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
So did you manage to clear the National B Mission Races? Good! Well, guess what- you're not done yet! More of these Mission Races await you. You will be facing harder Mission Races now that you made it to the National A Mission Races. You must demonstrate your ability to pass opposing cars while also navigating the various courses you are doing these Mission Races on. So let's continue this series on Gran Turismo 6's Mission Races here on "John's Race Space!"

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National B
• Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National A (YOU ARE HERE)
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International B
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - International A
Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - Super

There are no Mission Races for the National License. Each of the above links will be edited as posts for each one is complete. You need to have a certain number of Stars in each level of racing in Gran Turismo 6 to unlock the Mission Races.






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races: National A


Gran Turismo 6 National A Mission Races
^ Some faster cars and tougher challenges await you once you reach the National A-level Mission Races. Are you ready?

Let's try to clear these Mission Races and prove you are a worthy Gran Turismo racing driver.


A-1: European Hot Hatch Battle.

Car: 2011 Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy
Course: Brands Hatch Indy Circuit
Mission Type: Section

Using the first half of the Indy configuration of Brands Hatch, you will be racing a peppy French hatchback around this British circuit. Each corner and kink are tricky on this course, so you will need to drive carefully to avoid overshooting any of the corners on this track.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 29.500
• SILVER: 31.000
• BRONZE: 34.000


A-2: Classic Sports Car Battle.

Car: 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
Course: Circuito de Madrid
Mission Type: Section

If muscle cars are more your thing, then you'll love this challenge. Circuito de Madrid is a tricky, twisty street course. You will mostly use the second sector of this course. You will need to drive quickly if you want to pass the opponent car in this Mission Races. Try not be too intimidated by the barriers around this track.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 34.000
• SILVER: 35.000
• BRONZE: 39.000


A-3: Battle at 3,000 Meters - Matterhorn Challenge.

Car: 2001 BMW Z8
Course: Matterhorn Dristelen
Mission Type: Section

Time to take to the mountains of Switzerland for this challenge. This Swiss track is beautiful, and so is your car for this Mission Race- the BMW Z8. Do not underestimate the level of difficulty in this challenge. For you to succeed here, you need to deal with rather severe elevation changes. And unless you want your car to be part of the scenery, keep your eyes on the road and don't lose focus of trying to pass the other three cars.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 37.300
• SILVER: 38.500
• BRONZE: 42.000


A-4: Night Fight - Apricot Hill Under the Stars.

Car: 2012 KTM X-Bow Street
Course: Apricot Hil Raceway
Mission Type: Section

For the first time in the Mission Races in GT6, you will be racing at night. Nighttime can be entertaining seeing lights shine through the darkness and providing exceptional views. However, the added darkness will impair your judgment as you try to overtake opponents or properly clear corners. Keep these things in mind as you race this lightweight Austrian sports car. You will be using the backstretch of the original GT track Apricot Hill Raceway, which made its debut in Gran Turismo 2 and can be raced on in time/weather variable conditions in GT6. Pass carefully after the first corner, because it can be too easy to either go too deep into the first corner or whack one of the three cars you have to pass. Most important is to try not to cut the chicane leading to the Finish of this section. Hopefully you can handle this section properly.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 38.000
• SILVER: 39.000
• BRONZE: 44.000


A-5: Old Meets New - Stingray Showdown!

Car: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7)
Course: Willow Springs International Raceway - Big Willow
Mission Type: 1 Lap

At first glance, Willow Springs seems like a fairly easy course. Once you race it, you realize just how tricky and challenging this race course in Southern California really is despite its seemingly simple flow. If you fall into thinking this is a simple course, you are going to pay dearly. So stay alert at all times as you complete one lap around the Big Willow configuration of Willow Springs Raceway while also passing your opposition. You will be racing America's sports car- the C7 model Chevrolet Corvette. Your specific one is the C7 Stingray. As your opponent gets a head start, you must try to overtake the other Corvette while also properly winding your way around Willos Springs. Try to overtake as quickly and efficiently as you can while also trying to navigate this tricky course properly.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 1:31.300
• SILVER: 1:33.500
• BRONZE: 1:38.000


This one's over. See if you can clear these challenges as best as you can.

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races - National B

John B. Marine | 6:52 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
If you want to prove yourself as a racer in Gran Turismo 6, try the Mission Races. These events challenge you to take on pressure situations as you try to place as high as possible in them. Your ability to clear these challenges will help gauge you as a racer in Gran Turismo 6. To make the most of your skills, you must try to take on each course to test trying to clear each event. This is a series of blog posts devoted to the Mission Races of Gran Turismo 6.


About the Label: "Mission Races"

Gran Turismo races feature Mission Races, set to challenge your racing ability by passing opponents as well as completing courses as quickly as you can. Blog posts under this label feature these events for you to clear.






Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races


The Mission Races test your ability to pass cars while also clearing the course within a given par time. These events will make you try to drive properly while making sure to avoid making crucial mistakes. Passing a car or cars is only part of clearing the Mission Races. You need to try to pass your opponent(s) while also making sure to clear the course in a given time. So treat these Mission Races like License Tests. You can not earn any Stars for completion of Mission Races, but you can earn money for clearing each Mission Race. Try to earn Gold in each Mission Race if you can.

Each Mission Race consists of five events. The first four events are all section-based events using a certain section of the given facility. The final Mission Race is a lap-based event around a certain track. Success in the Mission Races involve overtaking vehicles while also clearing the course in a fast time. It is not, however, required you pass all the vehicles in the given run. You just need to clear the event as quickly as you can. If you commit any of these fouls during the course of a Mission Race:

• you completely leave the course
• you collide hard into a barrier
• you hit an obstacle (such as a cone)
• you collide hard into a rival car

...your run will be disqualified, and you must try that Mission Race again. If you fail to complete the Mission Race within the par time, you will not receive any award. So make sure to complete the race in time and try to complete it with a quick time.

Gran Turismo 6 Mission Races: National B


Gran Turismo 6 National B Mission Races
^ This is the first set of trials meant to test your racing ability while also passing cars.

This is a simple set of races designed to test your racing ability. Are you ready?


B-1: Compact Car Battle.

Car: 2007 Nissan March 12SR
Course: Tsukuba
Mission Type: Section

Your first Mission Race involves a trip around Tsukuba Circuit. You start on the latter portion of this short Japanese race track and must try to pass your opposition. The race ends after you clear the second hairpin.

TARGET TIMES:

B-2: FF Sports Car Battle.

Car: 2004 Honda Integra Type R (DC5)
Course: Trial Mountain
Mission Type: Section

The next challenge of the National B Mission Races is to try to pass your opponent in a battle of front-engine, front-wheel drive sports cars. You will be racing Trial Mountain, famous for its undulating corners and rock walls on either side. Take advantage of your Honda's front-wheel drive characteristics when taking on this Mission Race. Remember that FF cars have the front wheel acclerating and turning. Also, they are prone to understeer when their limits are pushed too far. So learn to apply proper driving technique to clear this Mission Race. The section ends after you clear the first corner after exiting the first tunnel. Pass the rival car to clear the challenge.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 31.300
• SILVER: 32.000
• BRONZE: 35.000


B-3: Predicting What's Ahead - London City Skirmish.

Car: 1972 Lotus Europa Special
Course: London
Mission Type: Section

Take to the streets of London, England, UK racing a British sports car. London is a short city course. There is little room for error racing on city streets. Such courses have concrete walls on either side almost all the way around the course. A lot of city courses even have some very sharp corners. So you need to make your moves quickly to avoid having to go into an extended battle against rival cars. You must overtake three cars in this Mission Race.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 35.000
• SILVER: 36.000
• BRONZE: 40.000


B-4: Where Should You Make Your Move? Bathurst Battle.

Car: 2010 Jaguar XKR Coupe
Course: Mount Panorama Circuit
Mission Type: Section

Mount Panorama Circuit is one of the most grueling race courses in the world. This semi-permanent Australian race course features very tight and grueling corners along with some severe elevation changes. This track is ANYTHING but easy. You will be racing after the first corner of Mount Panorama Circuit into the winding madness of these mountain roads. Take advantage of your Jaguar sports coupe to pass the other three cars you share the road with. This Mission Race will teach you overtaking discipline.

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 37.500
• SILVER: 39.000
• BRONZE: 43.000


B-5: Nissan GT-R Showdown!

Car: 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition
Course: Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit
Mission Type: 1 Lap

You will be taking one lap around the modern configuration of Silverstone Circuit in a Nissan GT-R. That means you will be taking on the "Arena" configuration of this legendary and historic racing facility. As the the name of this Mission Race implies, you are racing against another Nissan GT-R. Your ability to clear this Mission Race depends on beating your opponent to the line while also posting as quick of a lap as you can. Can you score Gold?

TARGET TIMES:
• GOLD: 2:20.800
• SILVER: 2:22.500
• BRONZE: 2:27.000


That will do it. Hopefully you cleared all of these Mission Races to the best of your ability.
