    2.4  Notes
    ----------
    
    Here is a list of cars worth mentioning in no particular order:
    
    1.  Viper GTS - the best car for the normal car race.
    2.  Cerbera LM Edition - lightweight with good power and good handling. 
                             good for UK vs. anybody and even for the
                             megaspeed race.
    3.  FTO LM Edition - like the Cerbera LM Edition but with better
                         handling and 4WD.  good for Japan vs. anybody.
