    This guide is intended to help players complete the various Checkpoint Races
    and Time Trials throughout Grand Theft Auto Vice City. These races or time
    trials can be done by getting into a certain vehicle within the City.
    These missions are considered as a "side mission", and are not included
    within the main storylines of the game, they must be completed in order to
    attain 100% game completion.
    
    The guide is split into 4 sections:
    - vehicle Checkpoint Race
    - RC vehicle Race
    - Street Race
    - Heli Checkpoint Race
    
    Within these missions, the following rare vehicles can be obtained:
    - Black Sanchez Motobike
    - Black Rancher 4x4
    - Flame proof Banshee
    - Flame proof Cheetah
    - Flame proof Infernus
    - Sparrow Helicopter
    
    This guide was done and tested before the re-release of GTA3 and Vice City
    on the XBOX.

    This guide was done with the PC version of Grand Theft Auto Vice City.
    Therefore there is minor differences with this guide and that if it were
    written with the PS2 version of the game. The first difference is the
    controls, in my opinion the PS2 game pad is better for driving vehicles and
    riding motorbikes through these missions, but the PC Keyboard is more
    suitable for the Helicopter and RC Plane missions.
    
    The other difference is the mission "Trial by Dirt". If you read the
    mission overview, you will see that each time you complete the race and
    beat a previous time, there is a difference with the race. (Red barrels
    apear, it rains and Haitians chase you on Sanchez bikes) However on the PS2
    version of the game, this does not happen as all three obsticles, happen
    from the very first time you try the mission.
    
    "Trial by Dirt" and "Test Track" are a combination, for example you can do
    "Trail by Dirt" 3 times and on the 3rd time of completion get $300, but
    when you do "Test Track" for the first time you'll get $400, instead of
    $100 as you've already done "Trial by Dirt" 3 times already. Both of these
    races must be done to gain 100%, as both of them together give you 1% on
    the overall status. In the status menu the times of these 2 races will be
    the same (the best time) i don't know why this is, but it happens on the PC
    aswell as the PS2.

    There are 4 vehicles in Vice City that activate checkpoint missions that you
    generally do in that vehicle. 2 in West Vice City and 2 in East Vice City.
    ______________
    PCJ Playground
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    Vice Point
    Available:   From the begining of the game
    Time Limit:  120 Seconds
    vehicle:     PCJ 600
    Reward:      $1000
    Checkpoints: 24
    Type:        Pass all checkpoints within the timelimit
    Difficulty:  Hard
    How To Find: From the Ocean View Hotel head North, when the road bends West,
    continue North onto the grass just after the first lamp post, below the
    Standing Vice Point hotel tucked away in the corner is the PCJ 600 used in
    this mission.
    
    Mission Overview:
    Once you've found the PCJ in question a mission name will show and an
    explaination of the mission will come up. This mission is relativly straight
    forward, you can afford to fall off the bike however it makes the final few
    checkpoints more critical as you will have less time to do them in. The
    mission will take a few atempts but the final two checkpoints make this
    harder than it looks to start out. Once you get good enough not to fall off
    the bike time shouldn't really be much of a problem. As the timer doesn't
    start until you pass through the first checkpoint have a look where they all
    are if you need to as they all show up from the start as there is no
    particular order to do them in, however i advise you to follow the
    walkthrough as it is the best solution. If you do fall off or destroy the
    PCJ you are given you can simply jump on another one within the timelimit.
    
    Walkthrough:
    From where you start head North to get a decent run up for the first
    checkpoint, head South down the edge of the grass towards the ramp up onto
    the building and get the first checkpoint you need to go fairly quick but
    not hugely fast. Checkpoint 2 is on the roof of the building, be careful
    not to fall off the building too soon. Drop back in the alleyway heading
    South and drive straight up the steps in front of you to grab checkpoint 3.
    You shouldn't need too much speed to get Checkpoint 3 as your not trying to
    get onto the roof of the building opposite, instead continue South down the
    alleyway and collect Checkpoint 4 and Checkpoint 5 directly infront of you,
    it's crucial you dont fall off as you need to build up enough speed to make
    it up the next set of steps to get Checkpoint 6 and land on the roof of the
    building.
    
    Once you've landed brake hard but try not to loose the bike, collect
    Checkpoint 7 on the roof of the building and drop back into the alleyway
    without falling off. Collect Checkpoint 8 which is close by and continue on
    to get Checkpoint 9 and 10. Checkpoint 11 is above the road heading
    West/East so you need to launch off the wooden boards to get sufficient
    height over the truck that will cross your path. Land back in the alleyway
    and head to Checkpoint 12. Slow down before collecting it as another Truck
    will cross and get in the way, wait until it's past you and head South to
    Checkpoint 13. Drive to the end of the alleyway and collect Checkpoint 14,
    you need to make sure your not going too quick otherwise you'll fall.
    Checkpoint 15 is across the road and in the opening of a small alleyway
    heading South.
    
    Continue down that alleyway and collect Checkpoint 16 but be careful of
    the posts that are in the way. Once you collect Checkpoint 16 turn West in
    between 2 buildings to collect Checkpoint 17. Head Slightly North once you
    cross the road and collect Checkpoint 18 which will need a slight increase
    in speed, then drop down into the underpass and slow down to grab Checkpoint
    19 which is close to a large post. You then need to use the steps heading
    West in front of you to launch up to collect Checkpoint 20, then continue
    North up the road. Checkpoint 21 is just before the corner of the next
    junction to the Left/West on the sidewalk/pavement.
    
    The next 3 can be done in two ways, (firstly the way it was designed to be
    done) continue down the road you just turned left into and immedietly turn
    left into the entrance of the carpark, to get Checkpoint 22. Tricky as it
    sounds maintain reasonably high speed and ramp up the steps to the South
    but turn slightly to the right. You should collect Checkpoint 23 and land
    on the Pay N Spray, you can then control the bike and either back up for a
    run up or continue on if you think you can make it to the white building
    with the pink roof to the south, where the Final Checkpoint, Checkpoint 24
    is. The other method is perhaps easier for the beginner, after collecting
    Checkpoint 21 turn left and then turn right, going North up an alleyway.
    Once at the end get a decent ammount of speed and head South to get
    Checkpoint 22, the object here is to collect Checkpoint 22, use the steps
    to the South to get Checkpoint 23, but using the high speed clear the
    Pay N Spray and land on the pink roof to get Checkpoint 24.

    Cone Crazy
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    Ocean Beach Multistory Car Park
    Available:   From the begining of the game
    Time Limit:  11 seconds for each Checkpoint
    vehicle:     Stallion
    Reward:      $200
    Checkpoints: 5
    Type:        Pass all checkpoints within the timelimit without smashing
                 any cones
    Difficulty:  Medium
    How To Find: From the Ocean View Hotel Head South and turn Right/West and
    then Right/North, so you are behind the hotel. You will see Collar & Cuffs
    clothes shop on the Left along with the entrance to the multistory car park.
    The car is at the top level and is parked facing South at the North end.
    
    Mission Overview:
    Firstly the car which sometimes doesn't always appear has a different
    coloured roof to the body (if it has a roof). It's not the best of handling
    cars in the game but it's not like you use it for long. You simply have to
    pass through each Checkpoint in no particular order within the timelimit
    without smashing the cones, if you smash any cones or get out of the car
    or destroy it you will fail. The timelimit starts when you get the first
    Checkpoint and you get 11 seconds for each Checkpoint you pass through.
    The walkthrough is the best way I found for doing this mission.
    
    Walkthrough:
    First of all this mission is extremly hard to explain without the use of
    pictures, so i've used my ASCII skills to put the layout of the cones and
    Checkpoints into perspective. Once in the vehicle the mission information
    should run through, as the timer doesn't start until you collect the first
    Checkpoint, use the time to study the layout if you need to. The first 2
    Checkpoints are critical, since you only get 11 seconds from each
    Checkpoint, so position yourself between the four cones next to Checkpoint
    1, the idea is you want to reverse into Checkpoint 1 and then drive
    straight forward into Checkpoint 2. Then reverse back and position
    yourself with Checkpoint 3, dont go too fast or you'll smash the cone on
    the raised area. There is enough room to drive up the ramp and round to
    Checkpoint 4 without falling off the raised area. Grab Checkpoint 4 and
    drive between the parked cars, drive slowly round the cones and collect
    Checkpoint 5 to complete the mission.

    Test Track
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    Downtown Dirt Track
    Available:   Once Mission 'Phnom Penh '86' is Completed
    Time Limit:  None, Timed Mission
    vehicle:     Landstalker
    Reward:      $100 x number of times you beat your previous time
    Checkpoints: 38
    Type:        Complete 2 laps of the track, collecting all the Checkpoints
    Difficulty:  Medium
    How To Find: Coming into Downtown from Prawn Island over the bridge, go past
    Ammu-Nation and at the end of the road turn right. Go past the Hyman Condo
    and take next right, then turn right again heading south. Follow the road
    round the bend to the left and head East until you get to the Degenertron
    sign that overhangs the road turn left down a path, the dirt track is on the
    left behind the building.
    
    Mission Overview:
    This mission may well sound simple, and if your any good at driving it is.
    This is timed rather than a race against the clock. This is only difficult
    because the Landstalker rolls really really easily. Simply complete 2 laps
    of the track without bailing to pass, Checkpoint locations are in the
    walkthrough. If you feel you are going to roll then turn into the roll and
    you should be able to correct it. After you complete this once, at a time
    for example of 3 minuites, you will gain a reward of $100, if you do the
    race again you will notice there are 4 red barrels placed between
    Checkpoints 2/21 and 3/22. As long as you don't run directly over them
    they should cause no problems. If you complete it a second time with a
    time of, for example 2 mins 50, your reward will be $200. If you continue
    to race a third and fourth time and you beat your previous time your
    reward will continually increase with every time you beat your previous
    best. When you come round to attempt this mission a fourth time, you will
    see a security guard armed with a Nightstick driving a Black Rancher, he
    will chase you and kill you if he gets the chance.
    
    Walkthrough:
    Drive Forward and approach checkpoint 1.
    1/20 Collect this just before the bend, and carry on forward to number
    2/21. Continue on round the bend and collect
    3/22, this next one has high rolling potential, so take it easy.
    4/23. The next is at the base of a set of doubles, slowly ease up them.
    5/24. Try not to go on the grass here as you can roll too easily.
    6/25 this one is close to an incline again, go round the corner easily.
    7/26 Head down the slope to get the next one
    8/27 then continue on, this one is on the hairpin.
    
    9/28 Again on the hairpin, but with another incline on the outside.
    10/29 is on a hairpin but it shouldn't be to hard to roll here.
    11/30 Sometimes there is a rain warning when you collect this one.
    12/31 Continue round the series of hairpins, slowing for the inclines.
    13/32 has a steep inner corner banking so be careful not to clip it.
    14/33 also has a smaller but hazardous banking on the inside.
    15/34 now head slightly up hill and collect this, the next one is on the
    16/35 final hairpin. Head up to get it but be careful of the bank in front
    17/36 of you when you collect this one.
    18/37 this is in a slight ditch so don't climb any of the bankings on either
    19/38 side, drive up the hill and collect the final one of the lap.
    
    ============================================================================

    Trial By Dirt
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    Downtown Dirt Track
    Available:   Once Mission 'Phnom Penh '86' is Completed
    Time Limit:  None, Timed Mission
    vehicle:     Sanchez
    Reward:      $100 x number of times you beat your previous time
    Checkpoints: 38
    Type:        Complete 2 laps of the track, collecting all the Checkpoints
    Difficulty:  Easy
    How To Find: Coming into Downtown from Prawn Island over the bridge, go past
    Ammu-Nation and at the end of the road turn right. Go past the Hyman Condo
    and take next right, then turn right again heading south. Follow the road
    round the bend to the left and head East until you get to the Degenertron
    sign that overhangs the road turn left down a path, the dirt track is on the
    left behind the building.
    
    Mission Overview:
    Again this is a timed mission, i would advise you to read the Mission
    Overview for the Test Track. You have to complete 2 laps of the track and
    collect all the checkpoints, but as oposed to the Test Track you will go
    round the track clockwise. As similar to the Test Track your reward will
    increase each time you do the race and beat your previous time. Each time
    you do the race there will be some kind of obsticle to bare in mind. The
    first time you race this you will simply set a time and get the reward. If
    you fall off the bike you have 15 seconds to get back on, and it doesnt
    even have to be the same bike. The second time you race it, you must beat
    your previous time to complete, but there will be some barrels between
    Checkpoints 17/36 and 18/37. If you complete it a second time and atempt
    it a third time chances are when you get to Checkpoint 9/28 it will start
    to rain. Again if you complete it and atempt the mission a fourth time
    there will be 3 Haitians on Black Sanchez bikes, armed with Machetes,
    chasing you round the course.
    
    Mission Walkthrough:
    1/20 Head forward and up the slope to get this Checkpoint,
    2/21 turn slightly and get this Checkpoint, and continue round the bend.
    3/22 Collect this Checkpoint at the start of the hairpin and head down
    4/23 the hill to collect this one.
    5/24 Turn left and then right to collect this Checkpoint, and head on
    6/25 to the next haipin where this Checkpoint is.
    7/26 Use the brake and ease round the bend where this Checkpoint is.
    
    8/27 Don't use the inside corner too much when you get this one,
    9/28 continue round and get this Checkpoint, sometimes it might rain
    10/29 here. Collect this one and contiune on into the S bend to
    11/30 get this Checkpoint. It opens up a little, but turn left into
    12/31 the next hairpin, to get this Checkpoint, and turn right a little
    13/32 to get this one.
    14/33 Head up the small hill and grab the Checkpoint on the hairpin at the
    15/34 top before coming down again. Be careful of the jumps here.
    16/35 Turn into the hairpin and get this Checkpoint, continue on to the

    18/37 are there. Get this Checkpoint and drive forward to the next one,
    19/38 this is back at the start.

    ________
    RC Baron
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    North Point Mall Mutlistorey Car Park in Vice Point
    Available:   From the begining of the game
    Time Limit:  None, Timed race
    vehicle:     Top Fun Van/RC Baron, plane
    Reward:      $100
    Checkpoints: 28
    Type:        Race through East Vice City collecting Checkpoints, vs 3 others
    Difficulty:  Hard
    How To Find: From Ocean View Hotel head North until you get to the Malibu.
    Go past that and continue North until the road bears Left/West, follow it
    round until your heading South, you will see the Mall and a Car park on your
    left, enter the car park and go to the very top level. The Top Fun Van is
    on the North end of the Car Park facing South.
    
    Mission Overview:
    You have to fly arround East Vice City collecting the 28 Checkpoints faster
    than the 3 opponents your racing against. Once you've learnt the controls
    this really isn't too hard, the only problem is hitting things. As you take
    a few atempts to try this, as you wont do it first time, you will realise
    that the other planes you race are a slower than you. Therefore if you do
    get far enough ahead you can afford maybe to make one mistake. Bare in
    mind that you don't have to fly through the dead centre of each Checkpoint
    for it to count. It is also vital to use the map to work out wheather or
    not the next Checkpoint is higher or lower than your height. Use these
    points and after 3 or 4 trys it shouldn't be too hard. You must win the
    race to complete this mission.
    
    Walkthrough:
    After you get in the Van and the information has come up, a count down from
    3 will start. Head straight forward and into Checkpoint 1, then climb over
    the wall and head forward to Checkpoint 2, drop a little and stay above the
    bridge to the South and collect Checkpoint 3. Follow the road and bare to
    the right a little and collect Checkpoint 4. Checkpoint 5 is on the sharp
    corner, collect it and then imedietly turn left and head over the water a
    little, be careful not to hit any of the trees. You'll want to get
    Checkpoint 6 at an angle where it's easy to head south. Stay high so you
    don't hit any buildings.
    
    Checkpoint 7 is next to the Pay N Spray. Ideally stay above all the Street
    lights and dive into the next 2 Checkpoints. Head past Leaf Links View and
    dive slightly to get Checkpoint 8. Checkpoint 9 is at the T junction at the
    end of the street simply fly through it and head South over the buildings.
    Checkpoint 10 is slightly before and above Well Stacked Pizza Co. get it
    turn right over the bridge and towards Checkpoint 11, then turn left.
    Again stay clear of the trees and above the street lights. Head down the
    street and collect Checkpoint 12 just before the junction, continue going
    South down the road and get Checkpoint 13 just after the Contruction Yard.
    
    Continue past that and get Checkpoint 14 which is just before the junction.
    Checkpoint 15 is just past "Bunch Of Tools" grab it and the slowly dive to
    collect Checkpoint 16 which is literally on the bridge, try not to hit the
    road when you get it. Carry on South along the same road and get Checkpoint
    17 which is just past the junction and Checkpoint 18 which is outside Ken
    Rosenburg's office. Checkpoint 19 is just before the Washington Mall and
    Checkpoint 20 is on the junction that leads over the water to Vice Port
    Docks. Bare left over the Hospital Car park where you will see Checkpoint
    21 carry on behind the Hospital and over the hill between the Advertisment
    and the white building where Checkpoint 22 is.
    
    This next section is reasonably difficult as most of the Checkpoints are
    about the same height as the road lights, and there is trees either side
    of the road and in the middle. Go under an Advertisment board and dive a
    little to get Checkpoint 23 which is next to the Marina. Continue on and
    get Checkpoint 24 which is just after a junction. Bare slowly to the left
    trying not to hit anything and get Checkpoint which is just after the
    green building on the left, next is Checkpoint 26 which is on a junction,
    dont turn but follow the road as it continues to bend to the left.
    Checkpoint 27 is outside a building called Maison Wenifall, head round
    the corner and collect Checkpoint 28 which is the final one as it's
    purple.
    
    ============================================================================

    RC Bandit
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    The beach in Vice Point
    Available:   From the begining of the game
    Time Limit:  None, Timed race
    vehicle:     Top Fun Van/RC Bandit, car
    Reward:      $100
    Checkpoints: 50
    Type:        Do 2 laps of a track collecting Checkpoints, vs 3 others
    Difficulty:  Medium
    How To Find: From the Ocean View Hotel head North until you get to the
    Malibu club. Continue heading North along the beach front road and stop at
    the 6th junction past the Malibu club. You should see on the right hand side
    of the road a large white unamed hotel. The Track is behind this hotel.
    
    Mission Overview:
    The Top Fun Van is on the South side of the Track, facing North.
    The Track you will do the mission on isn't really that big, the reason there
    is so many Checkpoints is that they are so close together. There are 2 laps,
    25 Checkpoints on each lap and each Checkpoint is in the same place. The
    Track itself isnt too hard and you rarely need to use the brakes, just stay
    clear of the bankings and the boulders that get in the way and you shouldn't
    have any problem. The opponents you race are however reasonably quick and
    will always be close behind, so in my opinion more than one mistake and it
    may cost you the race. You must win the race to complete this Mission.
    
    Walkthrough:
    1/26 Head forward to collect this Checkpoint and then slightly up a hill, to
    2/27 collect this Checkpoint. Turn slightly to the right and down a little,
    2/28 avoid the banking to the left and continue right, grab this and head to
    4/29 the hairpin to get this Checkpoint, go left round the hairpin and up a
    5/30 little and collect this one in the open area. Build up speed here
    6/31 while collecting this one and head up the hill in front of you.
    
    7/32 Grab this Checkpoint at the top of the hill and turn slightly right,
    8/33 avoiding the banking to get this one. Build up speed and head for the
    9/34 next one, this area is nice and wide so you need to floor it. Try not
    10/35 to turn too much here as there is slight bumps in the sand. Collect
    11/36 this one on the left hand turn and head forward to collect the next
    12/37 Checkpoint here in the next left 90 degree turn. Grab this next one on
    13/38 the small straight which is number 13/38 and head into the right turn.
    
    14/39 Collect this one on the right turn, but be careful because the banking
    15/40 is very tight. Collect this one on the small straight and head to the
    16/41 next slight right turn where this one is. Head out of this turn and
    17/42 into the slight S bend where this Checkpoint is. Carry on round the
    18/43 left bend and collect this Checkpoint but be careful as there is bumps
    19/44 here, head slightly up and to the right to get this one. Drop down and
    20/45 right to get this one but the sand is slightly angled here so use
    21/46 caution. Get this one but don't touch the boulder it's next to, into
    22/47 the long left hand bend round the big pointed rock and collect this,
    23/48 and this Checkpoint. It opens out a little here and becomes slightly
    24/49 straight simply head forward, avoiding the banking at either side and
    25/50 collect this Checkpoint on the Start/Finish line.
    
    ============================================================================

    RC Raider
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Location:    Freight And Cargo Terminal in Escobar International Airport
    Available:   Once Mission 'Phnom Penh '86' is Completed
    Time Limit:  None, Timed Mission
    vehicle:     Top Fun Van/RC Raider, Helicopter
    Reward:      $100
    Checkpoints: 20
    Type:        Collect 20 Checkpoints in the fastest time
    Difficulty:  Medium
    How To Find: From the Ocean Beach to Vice Port Bridge, coming into Vice Port
    turn left and then first right. Then take the 3rd left into the Freight and
    Cargo Terminal, at the end of the road stop and enter the car park to the
    right. Imedietly on your left you will see the Top Fun Van, parked facing
    North.
    
    Mission Overview:
    This mission is only slightly difficult because of the over sensitive
    controls of the Raider. It is quite tricky to turn and very easy to flip.
    So learn the controls and get a feel for it. As this is not against the
    clock (it's timed instead) it means it's a lot easier than it could be.
    Once you've gotten used to the Helicopter you should start. Only thing to
    worry about is not to destroy the Raider, it's quite tough but there's
    nothing worse than getting like 18 or 19 Checkpoints and then destroying it.
    
    Mission Walkthrough:
    Fly up and to the South, over the awning Checkpoint 1 is above some large
    cargo crates. Now head slightly West and drop to the level of the helipad,
    dont drop too low, collect Checkpoint 2. Fly South-West between the 2
    Learjets and drop down to the level of the runway where Checkpoint 3 is.
    Continue in that same general direction towards the radar tower. Collect
    Checkpoint 4 above the roof of the radar building, be careful not to hit
    the building. Head slightly a little more South, over the 2 runways and
    head for the 3 "Hazard Ramps?", Checkpoint 5 is between the first one and
    the second one you come across be careful not to hit the sides of them.
    
    Now gain some altitude and fly over the first hangar to the North and
    collect Checkpoint 6 which is above the second hangar. Head North-East and
    over to the set of 3 "Hazard Ramps?", Checkpoint 7 is between the first one
    and the second one you come to. This next one is very tricky, head slightly
    West over the runway towards the hangar with the large passenger jet in.
    Checkpoint 8 is under this plane, level with the wings. Exit the hangar and
    head North, Checkpoint 9 is between the last hangar to the North and the
    Southern facing wall of the fire station, again it's a little tricky as
    it's so close to the ground and it's tight between the two buildings. Now
    gain some altitude and climb right over the fire station, Checkpoint 10 is
    above the radio tower on top of the fire station.
    
    Head East again over the first runway and towards the second. Drop down as
    Checkpoint 11 is at the base of the huge runway buffer. Go slightly North
    towards the fence next to the road and collect Checkpoint 12 which is at
    the base of some mobile plane steps. Now go South and towards the terminal
    gate walkway, Checkpoint 13 is under the walkway. Head North again and
    follow the walkway back towards the terminal. This one is a little tricky,
    Checkpoint 14 is situated above the walkway but under the terminal awning
    and up against the wall. Fly East and towards the other terminal gate
    walkway, Checkpoint 15 is under the walkway just South of the first support
    pillar.
    
    For this final section Head North round the terminal and out towards the
    grassy area in the middle of the roadways. Head over towards the huge surf
    sign. Checkpoint 16 is a little tricky aswell it's behind the surfer, at
    the top of the ramp. Now again head South into the airport grounds and over
    to the most North-Eastly hangar. Checkpoint 17 is above this hangar.
    Continue going South back towards the start until you get to the end of the
    runway, Checkpoint 18 is behind the base of the runway buffer. Carry on
    going South over the runway and towards Checkpoint 19, which is above the
    hangar just past the runway. Checkpoint 20, the final Checkpoint, is over
    towards the awning at the start near Checkpoint 1. Fly over the awning and
    drop down when you get to the Sourthern facing edge of the awning.
    Checkpoint 20 is between a red and blue cargo crate at ground level.

    The 6 Street races are available via "Sunshine Autos" which you must
    purchase, you can only purchase "Sunshine Autos" once you've completed the
    mission "Shakedown". "Sunshine Autos" costs $50,000 and is located on the
    border between Little Havana and Vice Port.
    
    To find it, coming into West Vice City from the Ocean Beach/Washington Beach
    bridge, come into Vice port and turn left coming off the bridge, take first
    right and first right again, heading North. "Sunshine Autos" is on the
    right hand side of the road just past a huge bill board.
    
    There are 6 street races of various size, as they vary in size the prize
    money you can win varys too. The races are timed but the object is to pass
    through all the Checkpoints before the 3 other races your racing against do.
    Once you've bought "Sunshine Autos" you need to go down the ramp and to the
    garage area where there is a map of the City, the pink marker allows you to
    choose the race you want to do. I strongly advise you to complete the
    vehicles wanted lists next to the Western Garage. This will allow you to
    get 4 secret cars 3 of which can be used to win the street races. (Hotring
    Racer, Deluxo and the Sabre Turbo) I recommend using the Hotring Racer for
    all the races, as it combines, high speed, durability and good handling.
    
    The races themselves arent too hard, the do vary slightly in difficulty,
    but the general rule is as long as you get a decent start, dont destroy the
    vehicle your in (as you could loose serious time) and try not to crash too
    much they really shouldn't be any problem to complete. Theorectically you
    could use any old vehicle to do the races, as the opponents can crash so
    much that it leaves you to walk it with ease, however the same race can be
    different each time you try. I would advise you to not use a bike as the
    risk off falling off is too high, that it may cost you the race.
    
    Here is a list of ideal cars to use: (In order of Top Speed, fastest first)
    Infernus
    Cheetah
    Hotring Racer
    Banshee
    Blista Compact
    Police
    Pheonix
    Stinger
    Comet
    De Luxo
    FBI Car
    Sabre Turbo

    There are 4 Sparrow Helicopters parked in Vice City, 1 in Ocean Beach, 1 in
    Vice Point, 1 in Downtown and 1 in Little Haiti. These missions are easy,
    as they are timed as opposed to against the clock. If you destroy or get
    out of the Sparrow Helicopter you will fail the mission. All you need to do
    is use the Sparrow to collect all the Checkpoints in the fastest time. You
    should use the radar more than most Checkpoint races to determine where the
    Checkpoint is, and if its above or below your position. These missions are
    not available until you complete the mission "Rub Out".

    This is my second FAQ, and its on another Grand Theft Auto, my other was a
    GTA London 1961 guide, so check it out. I wanted to do something for Vice
    as i couldn't bring myself away from the game having 100% it. So i decided
    to write a Guide/FAQ, but most things had been covered on GamesFAQ.com, so
    i came up with the various Checkpoint races, since it wasn't really
    covered in any detail by anyone.
    
    Personally i think Rockstar did the right thing with this, they changed the
    format of the Checkpoint race, as opposed to the stuff in GTA3, and they
    varied the vehicles you used. I would like to see more races like the old
    ones though as they were much more challenging, whereas these were a little
    too easy. I would also love to see (in the next GTA) submarines, jet skis
    and RC boats, especially as Checkpoint races like these.
