    When you first start Championship Mode you are given offers by 
    Kohr Racing and Speedcraft.  The Rage from Kohr is a Porshe 
    knock-off and the Stallion looks like a Ford Mustang.  The Rage 
    is easier to drive but the Stallion is a little bit faster.  Both 
    of these teams treat their drivers nicely and just want to win.
    Once you move up to rank 29 you will be given an offer by 
    Viewpoint.  Be reluctant to accept this offer as you will soon 
    get one from Reeds.  The Reeds Manta is a sharp looking car that 
    is faster and easier to handle than the other cars before it.  
    However, the owner of Reeds is big on commitment, so if you leave 
    you can never get to their better cars.  
    
    After this point you need to be ranked pretty high to get an 
    offer from Eurosport.  Eurosport boasts a Viper look-a-like 
    called the Ram Venom.  This car is very difficult to handle, but 
    is the fastest and lightest car yet.  If you do decide to race 
    for Eurosprt you will not be given an offer by his rival Lassiter 
    in the GT1 circuit.  Eurosport's owner criticizes you if you lose 
    races and doesn't say much if you win.  I recomend waiting until 
    you move up one more rank to get an offer from TotalSport.  
    TotalSport's Furio is fast and easy to handle and looks good.  
    The A-class is my personal favorite car.  The owner treats his 
    drivers great and allows his drivers to move up to his A-class 
    car quicker if you stay loyal to him.  The last team in GT2 is 
    Elite.  Their car is fast and light but is hard to control.
    
    
    GT2 Cars
    
    The Stallion -- This car is the hardest to handle of the first 
    two.  It is also the heaviest car in G2.  The 
    A-class is however an extremely easy A-class 
    car to drive.
    The Rage -- This car looks sharp and hugs the road, especially 
    the A-class.  The B-class got me through a lot of 
    races in the middle events.
    The Elan Swift -- This car is considered the easier of the two 
    middle class cars to drive, however, I found 
    the Manta quite a bit nicer.  If you do ever 
    leave Reeds, you'll probably have to depend 
    on the Swift.
    The Manta -- I really like the way this car handled on the road, 
    and I loved the way it looked compared to the 
    Swift.  The only thing I didn't like was the fact 
    that I had to stay with Reeds to move up, so I 
    left early.
    The Ram Venom -- One of the best looking cars in the game is also 
    one of the hardest to drive.  Another 
    downfall is the fact that Lassiter won't 
    offer you his cars for racing with him.  If 
    you can master the car you are in great 
    shape, because the A-class is maybe the 2nd 
    best car in GT2.
    The Furio -- This car is my personal favorite.  I really like the 
    6 gears, and the wideness of the car.  It has the 
    same type of engine as the Reeds Manta, and 
    handles in the same fasion too.  And I believe the 
    A-class is the best looking car in GT2.
    The Challener -- This car is fast and light and hard to control, 
    but it is the best.  I don't think that this 
    car looks too sweet, so I think that I'll 
    stick with my Furio.

    Early Tracks
    	
    In my opinion the easiest of the tracks is Rome.  Both the A and 
    B versions are quite simple, yet still give you a little bit of 
    everything.  From sharp hairpin turns surrounded by sand to long 
    straight-a ways this track has it all.
    Hawaii is set just before sunrise so the lighting can be a 
    problem.  This track is primarily scenic, but narrow roads can 
    cause problems.
    Kyoto is a track that can give problems at first, mainly because 
    it is so dark.  But once you get the hang of it it becomes a race 
    that is easy to win because of the many sharp corners to cut.
    New Zealand is a bright track with a lot of sand and many turns.  
    The begging can be tight with all eight cars, so lay off until 
    you are past the first 4 or 5 turns.
    Las Vegas can give you trouble for the same reasons as Kyoto did, 
    but once you learn where the turns are this track becomes fun 
    because of all the places that you can take out your opponents 
    vehicles.  
    Lisbon is a great track set in a village or city.  The biggest 
    problem is that occasionally the sun gets in your eyes.  Practice 
    this one hard, because you need to complete 15 laps of it in 
    reverse to get into G1.
