    INTRODUCTION
    100% completion of Le Mans 24 Hours entails A LOT of work,
    and an even greater investment of time.  Simply working
    through all four time intervals of Le Mans 2000 and Petit Le
    Mans requires more than 40 hours of time, but that does not
    include the time required to work through all the Quick Race
    events to unlock new circuits, the various Championships, and
    the Time Trials.
    
    This guide is designed to help players to beat the posted
    Goal Time for each venue in Time Trials.  For many circuits,
    this is a rather easy feat when the 'right' car is used; for
    other circuits, only flawless driving combined with a car
    with fast speed AND excellent handling will allow the player
    to beat the posted Goal Time.  For detailed instructions for
    cleanly driving each of the circuits, as well as information
    on tire selection and tuning, please see my full Le Mans 24
    Hours Driving Guide.
    
    ====================================
    
    OVERALL GAME COMPLETION STRATEGY
    Except Quick Race mode, winning an event or championship
    results in unlocking one or more bonus cars.  This is key to
    good performance in Time Trials, as the initially-available
    cars are generally somewhat slow and have poor handling
    compared to many of the unlockable bonus cars.  Thus, a
    strategy for overall game completion is key to successfully
    completing the Time Trials:
    
    1.) Work through Quick Race, winning at each venue to unlock
    more circuits.  Time Trials can only take place at venues
    which are initially available or unlocked in Quick Race.
    
    2.) Work through several (or all) of the Championships to
    unlock more bonus cars.
    
    3.) Compete in at least the first three time intervals for Le
    Mans 2000 and Petit Le Mans.  Winning at these time intervals
    unlocks really quick cars which generally have great
    handling, especially at the medium time intervals (100
    minutes for Petit Le Mans, 240 minutes for Le Mans 2000).
    
    4.) Go to Time Trials and try to beat the Goal Time for each
    venue to unlock even more cars.  By now, you should have
    raced at each of the venues often enough to be rather
    familiar with the circuit layout.
    
    ====================================
    ====================================
    ====================================
    
    TIME TRIAL TIPS
    In Time Trial mode, you will always begin from a standing
    start.  This means that it will not be possible to best the
    Goal Time on the initial lap.  However, take this opportunity
    to practice a standing start with no other vehicles on the
    starting grid to distract you.  Also, on this initial lap,
    brake VERY early and take corners VERY slowly to save the
    tires (see the next tip below); come up to full racing speed
    only in the final corner(s) of the circuit.
    
    While there are no tire wear indicators on the screen when in
    Time Trial mode, tire wear does indeed occur; this is
    especially noticeable if using soft tires (you should be
    using soft tires anyhow, as they provide the best traction,
    which you will definitely need to better the Goal Times).
    Once you have completed about six to eight laps, the tires
    will no longer be of benefit to you, and will likely be a
    detriment to you; since any trip to Pit Lane is drive-through
    only with no servicing permitted, you will be forced to quit
    Time Trial mode and return to gain fresh tires (and more
    fuel).
    
    The Goal Time for most circuits is set so low that ANY off-
    course excursion will almost automatically put you out of
    contention for besting the Goal Time in that lap.  In this
    case, get back on the pavement as quickly as possible, and
    drive slowly (like on the first lap) to save the tires,
    coming up to full racing speed only at the final corner(s) of
    the circuit in anticipation of your next 'hot lap.'
    
    For all attempts at besting the Goal Time for a course, make
    sure to use as little fuel as the CPU will allow
    (approximately 30% to start a Time Trial run); this will
    reduce the weight of the fuel, thereby reducing the weight of
    the car and improving handling, accelerating, and braking.
    If you think fuel weight is not an issue, consider this:  One
    gallon of water equals approximately eight poundsŠ and one
    gallon of fuel will NOT get you very far, especially not at
    Le Mans!!!!!
    
    You will likely need to experiment with the car settings to
    see which gives you the best chance at besting the Goal Time
    for each circuit.  I find that setting the Gear Box to
    Acceleration, the Engine to Sprint, and Downforce to Low is a
    good starting set-up from which to work; be sure to adjust
    for personal preference and driving style.
    
    Dry conditions and Soft Tires are the best combination to
    provide excellent grip of the pavement, resulting in faster
    lap times.  Also, set the Number of Laps to Continuous, as
    this will allow you to keep going as long as your fuel holds
    out - this is really just a means to keep from reloading a
    venue if the Goal Time cannot be bested within a set number
    of laps.
    
    ====================================
    
    TIME TRIAL GOAL TIMES
    In Time Trial mode, besting the posted Goal Times earns you a
    new car, except at the three reverse courses.  Here are the
    posted Goal Times (including listed Goal Times for the
    reverse courses), listed alphabetically for player
    convenience:

    CIRCUIT-SPECIFIC TIPS
    This section presents specific tips for besting the posted
    Goal Time for each venue.  The circuits are listed here
    alphabetically.  Note that unless specified, I was able to
    beat the posted Goal Time for each circuit using Nissan
    Motorsports' Nissan R390 (Closed Prototype class, car #32; an
    identical car with the same team is identified as car #30,
    and both are won from the Open Prototype Championship) using
    absolute minimum starting fuel, lowest possible downforce,
    sprint engine, automatic transmission, top-speed gearbox, and
    soft tires.
    
    Brno
    - Hold 120MPH in Turn 1.  This will definitely require a car
      with excellent handling.
    - Many turns are essentially over-glorified chicanes.  Brake
      well entering the first corner, then power out of the first
      corner and completely through the second turn.
    
    Bugatti
    - Stay off the rumble strips at Dunlop Chicane, as the car
      will almost certainly bounce, likely sending one or more
      wheels into the sand and definitely causing the car to
      slow.
    - Keep off the grass and sand at hairpins.
    - Treat the final two corners as a single wide right-hand
      hairpin, but beware the sand and rumble strips.
    
    Catalunya Grand Prix
    - Keep tight to the apexes, especially through Turns 1 and 2.
    - Judicious use of rumble strips in final two corners key to
      gaining excellent top-end speed on Pit Straight.
    
    Catalunya National
    - Intimate familiarity with the circuit is required due to
      the dusk setting, creating long shadows to obscure much
      of the circuit.
    - Distance markers for Turn 1 are in 50-meter increments, NOT
      the 100-meter increments used at most venues.  This can be
      a potential cause for overshooting the corner for those who
      do not remember this point.
    - Judicious use of rumble strips in final two corners key to
      gaining excellent top-end speed on Pit Straight.
    
    Donnington Grand Prix
    * Medium downforce used to best the Goal Time for Donnington
      Grand Prix.
    - Stay off the rumble strips, as they are generally too
      short in length to adequately keep cars out of the grass
      and sand.
    - Treat Turn 8 (the sweeping J-turn) as a wide hairpin.  This
      will inherently create a single braking zone, allowing more
      time for use of the accelerator, and thus achieving faster
      speed along the ensuing straightaway toward the giant
      Dunlop Tire.
    - Remember that the Grand Prix course has a left-right
      chicane following the giant Dunlop Tire.
    - Keep a TIGHT apex on hairpins; swinging wide will both
      sacrifice time and increase change of sliding out into the
      grass and sand.  However, extreme care must be taken to NOT
      shortcut the hairpins, especially the final hairpin.
    - Excellent handling is required to power out of the final
      hairpin and still keep the car on the pavement.
    
    Donnington National
    * Medium downforce used to obliterate the Goal Time AND the
      Lap Record for Donnington National.
    - Stay off the rumble strips, as they are generally too
      short in length to adequately keep cars out of the grass
      and sand.
    - Treat Turn 8 (the sweeping J-turn) as a wide hairpin.  This
      will inherently create a single braking zone, allowing more
      time for use of the accelerator, and thus achieving faster
      speed along the ensuing straightaway toward the giant
      Dunlop Tire.
    - Remember that the Grand Prix course has a TIGHT right-left
      chicane following the giant Dunlop Tire.
    - Excellent handling is required to power out of the final
      chicane and still keep the car on the pavement.
    
    Le Mans
    - This is by far the most difficult Time Trial in the game.
      Plenty of patience is required here.
    - Stay off the rumble strips at Dunlop Chicane, as the car
      will almost certainly bounce, likely sending one or more
      wheels into the sand and definitely causing the car to
      slow.
    - Keep off the grass and sand at chicanes.
    - Try to keep above 90MPH at Motorola Chicane, and above
      70MPH at Michelin Chicane.
    - Treat Mulsanne Hump and Mulsanne Curve as one hairpin.  It
      helps to slightly shortcut Mulsanne Curve in this maneuver.
    - Try to keep off the rumble strips at Indianapolis and
      Arnage, as the car is likely to bounce, thus costing time.
    - Once you leave the public roads, it may help to VERY
      QUICKLY tap the brakes in each of the corners, just long
      enough so that the taillights barely illuminate.  This
      should slow the car just enough to make handling easier to
      help keep the car on the narrow pavement.
    - Judicious shortcutting of the curves in White House is key
      to good lap times.  Try to find the right angle to cut
      across each of the two chicanes while keeping at least
      three of the wheels on the rumble strips and pavement in
      the process.  Power out of the final chicane and HOPE that
      you can beat the posted Goal Time.
    
    Reverse Brno
    - See Brno
    
    Reverse Donnington Grand Prix
    - See Donnington Grand Prix
    
    Reverse Donnington National
    - See Donnington National
    
    Road Atlanta
    - Brake slightly before Turn 1, then stagger the throttle
      throughout the corner to keep from losing too much speed.
      This should help to keep the car from sliding off the
      pavement when cornering.
    - Turn 8: Keep about 105MPH with a tight line at the apex.
    - Turns 9 and 10 (the top of the circuit): Brake early and
      hard, but DO NOT shortcut or drift off-course into the sand
      and the grass.  Due to the barrier on the right side of the
      pavement, these are semi-blind corners, so flawless
      knowledge of the circuit here is required.
    - Chicane: Brake HARD early, shortcutting the first corner of
      the chicane and powering the accelerator to Turn 1.
    
    Road Atlanta National
    - Brake slightly before Turn 1, then stagger the throttle
      throughout the corner to keep from losing too much speed.
      This should help to keep the car from sliding off the
      pavement when cornering.
    - Turn 8: Approach from the left, braking only slightly while
      hitting the apex.  Hold a tight line to the right side of
      the pavement until the straightaway.
    - Chicane: Brake HARD early, shortcutting the first corner of
      the chicane and powering the accelerator to Turn 1.
    
    Suzuka East
    * Medium downforce and Gearbox set to Acceleration used to
      best the Goal Time for Suzuka East.
    - Keep tight to the apexes in the S-curves.
    - Approach the final hairpin from hard left; drift to hard
      right for exit.
    
    Suzuka Grand Prix
    * Medium downforce used to best the Goal Time for Suzuka
      Grand Prix.
    - Keep tight to the apexes, especially through S-curves and
      Chicane.  The medium downforce set-up will certainly help
      with the S-curves and Chicane, although overall top-end
      speed will be sacrificed on the straightaways.
    
    Suzuka West
    * Medium downforce used to best the Goal Time for Suzuka
      West.
    - Strong familiarity with the circuit is required, as the
      dusk setting and the bright lights make some corners
      somewhat difficult to see.

    UNLOCKING CARS (SPOILERS!!!!!)
    Here is how to unlock all the cars in Le Mans 24 Hours, as
    the best cars to use in Time Trial mode are those unlocked
    elsewhere in the game.  Note that often, the same make and
    model of car is used by different teams (with different paint
    schemes and racing numbers).  A multiplier (such as 'x3')
    means that the stated team has more than one 'version' of the
    specified car, with each 'version' differentiated by racing
    number.
    
    Also, there are a few instances where identical cars (with
    different racing numbers) by the same team are not acquired
    together, but by completing separate sections of the game.
    In this case, these cars are listed on separate lines in the
    table below, with the notation 'different car' for all such
    lines after the first.

    WISH LIST
    Here are some of the things I would personally like to see in
    future incarnation of the game as they relate to the time
    trials:
    
    1.) Faster loading times overall.  Many screens take an
    ENORMOUSLY long time to load, which can be rather
    frustrating.  Learn some tips from the programmers of Tokyo
    Extreme Racer Zero and F1 2001 and Kinetica!!!
    
    2.) More options for car set-up.  There is certainly no need
    for exact gear ratios, etc., but more modification
    possibilities would add another level of challenge to the
    game.
    
    3.) Add a/an (oval) test course.  This would allow players to
    experiment with different cars and set-ups to try to find the
    fastest possible speeds, which can be very important in
    certain modes of the game.
    
    4.) Damage modeling.  I realize this can be a sticky issue in
    receiving licenses from car manufacturers, but damage
    modeling adds a lot of realism to the game, and forces the
    player to be extremely careful with the cars - this is
    especially true in the full versions of the Le Mans and Petit
    Le Mans races.  Otherwise, bored players (like me!!!) are
    likely to purposely bang around the other cars on the
    circuit.
    
    5.) After an off-course excursion, a longer trail of
    grass/sand debris should be left behind on the pavement.
    
    6.) For those (like myself) with small television screens,
    much of the text-based information is FAR too small; numbers
    and letters run together, and the green and red colors also
    do not help much when trying to read specific information or
    numbers (with the lack of separation, 5 and 6 look too much
    alike, etc.).  A larger font needs to be used, and an
    additional one-point or two-point spacing between the
    characters would also help greatly.
    
    7.) Detail to corner workers.  With such exquisite detail
    given to weather and lighting effects, the cardboard cutouts
    representing corner workers is completely, totally,
    absolutely, inadequately sub-par.  (Note that this is most
    noticeable at Le Mans.)  Even if they never do anything but
    stand behind the guardrails and watch the race unfold, the
    corner workers should at least be afforded 3-D rendering.
    Fortunately, the trees do not look like cardboard cut-outs,
    but they could certainly use some fleshing out as well.
    
    8.) The Le Mans circuit needs MANY more timing points.
    
    9.) Le Mans 24 Hours is GREAT overall!!!  I strongly suggest
    that Infogrames do more endurance-racing games, perhaps one
    based on the American Le Mans Series (ALMS).  At the very
    least, a game not necessarily specific to a series but
    featuring endurance races at many circuits around the world
    (such as the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 24 Hours of Spa)
    would be very interesting.  Should this happen, advertise
    heavily on Speed Channel (in the States) during their
    coverage of such endurance races as the Petit Le Mans!!!
