Figure 8 Strategies

John B. Marine | 4:49 PM |
Some racing games have Figure 8 tracks. Either they are Figure 8 (or some call them "Figure-of-8") tracks where it is not possible to crash at the intersection, or the intersection can lead to crashes if not careful. Games that encourage crashing can make you suspect to getting wrecked if you unfortunately get tagged at the crossover. This is true in games like "Destruction Derby" or "Wreckfest."

Some other figure 8 tracks are simply impossible to have any crash happen at the intersection. This is especially true in the case of maybe the world's most famous figure 8 style track- Suzuka Circuit. Do not worry about the fear of crashing at the intersection on tracks with a bridge or overpass as a crossover.

When faced with a Figure 8 track where crashing happens at the intersection, be mindful of your own speed along with the fact other drivers may be going full speed into the crossover. You may adjust your speed in the crossover if you feel a vehicle may be approaching at a decent rate of speed as you enter the crossover. Be mindful every time you reach the crossover and adjust your driving skills when you can. You will not always avoid getting hit at the crossover, but you can do just enough to prevent from taking serious damage or terminal damage. The one thing to keep in mind is that these tracks are more about survival than actual racing skill. Though, racing skill does help just in case.
