I kept failing it but what i did to end up winning was i rammed and pushed her at the start of the race. I don't know what happened to her but she fell behind and never caught up and i won the race easily. --- 3DS FC 1719-3711-0721 Gamertag - Brokeslimjim v2 / PSN - Brokeslimjim

I can confirm this. Both races against Hill became super easy if you just cut her off right at the start. Unless you over do a turn and run into a wall, she won't catch up to you.
I've never had a problem with any of these races. Sure they jump out at the start but after that they slow to a crawl and are never even a threat to catch up. I don't use any special vehicles either...pretty much always a taxi or whatever is provided.
Are there difficulty settings and I'm on easy? That's the only thing I can think of really.
Yeah, most races, the opponent does get a huge burst of speed, but then slows down considerably. Kind of a psyche out, I guess.
I think the hardest part of the racing is just getting used to the sensitive steering controls. It's very easy to over do your turns, veering off to the side and slamming into a wall when you only intended to change lanes. And then it eats up precious seconds when you have to correct and go forward, or loop around to try and hit a ring you missed by a hair, which usually means you've all but lost right then. The races are simple, but one mistake at any point can easily cost you the race.
Some ring races also seem to make a point to have traffic coming at you through the ring right when you get to it. That might just be coincidence, because sometimes the streets are virtually empty for a stretch, before suddenly there's traffic. However, traffic can easily work for you as well in races against characters. I know I won the race against Blade easily, because he kept getting rammed by on coming cars.
