                                   Introduction
    
    ==============================================================================
    
     Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is really a great game. And I used to think the
     PSX version was cool <_< Anyway, this game is nothing like it's original. The
     original had only 8 cars and 1 bonus car. This game has over 45 cars! They're
     not easy to get however. This has it all: Porsche (My favorite), Ferrari, 
     Lamborghini, Aston Martin and then you have your average Ford, Mercedes, etc.
     The Hot Pursuit mode has been creatively been modeled. You have your average
     cop cars chasing you, road blocks and spike strips, and a helicopter?!?!. The
     helicopter is the hardest to shake off of you. First of all, it can acceler-
     ate faster than you can believe and drops barrels packed with explosives at
     you! Trying to dodge these can be a nightmare. Then you have a championship
     and Ultimate Racer mode. Here you can beat each level to move on until the
     finals. Beating each level earns you something. It could be unlocking another
     tournament bracket, unlocking cars, or unlocking tracks. As you progress, you
     will unlock more valuable cars (Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc.). That is
     what's in this game. Onto the guide.

      1.00  - Updated
              Finished Hot Pursuit section. This is the first complete version of
              the FAQ. In the next update I will hopefully finish the track
              descriptions.
    
      1.03  - Updated
              Got a few more shortcuts for the tracks and did a major formatting
              correction mainly because my 'overscores' weren't showing up nice on
              IGN.
    
      1.10  - Updated
              I made a new FAQ section and you will see the other obvious changes
              in different sections.
    
      1.12  - Updated
              It's been awhile but I'm still working on this FAQ. I added several
              contributions and made a format change because the other was too
              hard to read, atleast to me. I will be finishing up the Hot Pursuit,
              World Racing, and Tracks sections within the next updates.

                                   There are no AI opponents in this, just you and
                                   your friend, except player 1 is the cop and
                                   player 2 is the speeder. Basicly you just have
                                   catch player 2 three times and arrest him in
                                   the time limit, while player 2 has to complete
                                   the set number of laps in the time limit while
                                   avoiding being arrested. (Sent in by: Lazer

                                       ----
      
      o  Use your boosts, why wouldn't you?
    
      o  Tips for pulling over cars:
           Call for Spikes, Roadblocks, or Helicopters.
           When you do call for them, conserve them, you only get three helicop-
             ters and three of either spikes or roadblocks.
           To pull them over, crash them off the road and get in front of them. In
             some cases they will back up about 100 yards. If that happens, turn
             around quickly and hit them head on. That should get them.
    
      o  Avoid going off of jumps. That how you waste your time. . .
    
      o  Right from the beginning I target the last car, and then call for a road
         block, if it is positioned right on a small road, the spike strip will
         hit all the cars, leaving an easy job to pick them up with maximum
         points. (Sent in by: Dan Jacobson)

      Since this is the first level in Ultimate Racer, it should not be that hard.
      After making you first two turns, you will go up a long straightaway. On the
      straightaway there will be a cop on either the right or left of you. When
      you go past him, you should be going well over a hundred. He will give
      chase. When you enter the tunnel, stay to the right as much as you can. Sim-
      ply because if he gets on the left of you, you can ram him into the other
      wall while still going pretty fast. If you're on the other side, you will
      have a harder time trying to get past him. Most likely, he will give the
      chase up once you get out of the tunnel if you're lucky.
    
      The second cop should give chase soon after you get out of the tunnel. You
      should still be going very fast so you won't have to worry about him. You
      should have four stars by now. Once you go up the very big hill, look to
      your right to see a dirt path. Take it and look to your left for when you
      see the path turn. Go across the road and onto the other path. Follow this
      until a little bridge. After going through the tunnel, you will bechased by
      another cop, which makes two cops in total chasing you. You will continue
      down this road until you see a shortcut to the right. Take it because you
      will save time.
    
      After going down the free way, you will make a little turn to the right.
      Look to the right for a path. This is an excellent opportunity to lose the
      cops. If they are far behind you, they will follow you by using their
      boosts. Most likely they will lose control on this path. Just stay all the
      way to the right and go until the main road. After awhile, you will go over
      a bridge and will see a fork up ahead. I would say turn right and continue
      down the road. Reason is because if you have cops on your tail, the traffic
      can help you to get rid of them. When there's forks, take the right so you
      can stay with the traffic. Soon, you'll be done with time to spare
      (hopefully).

                          Event 2 - Opel Speedster Delivery

      After making a turn and two slight ones, you will go up a hill. A cop will
      be around here, but you'll be going going fast. After going through the S-
      Curves, as the police call it, you will make a slight 180 degree turn. Then
      to the right is a path. Take it to avoid wasting valuable time. Eventually
      you will go down a curvy road with a straight road to the left (on your
      radar). This is a favorite place for cops to set up roadblocks and spike
      strips. To the left as your going down the curvy road is a path. Take it.
    
      After coming out of the tunnel, you will see columns. To the right is a very
      narrow path. Take it and most likely, cops will go beserk trying to get you
      while aat the same time crashing into the columns. At about 58%, you will
      make a right turn. Then a left. Look to your left to see a boardwalk. It
      will be hard to control on this but you will manage (hopefully). At about
      67.7%, look to your right to see a path in the trees. This will eliminate
      trying to avoid any roadblocks that might be to the left of the path. 
    
      At about 74% complete, you will see a little town. You will see the main
      road veer off to the left. Look straight and a bit to the right. You will
      barely see a path made of cobblestone. The traction on this is similiar com-
      pared to the boardwalk surface. Watch out for the barrels to the left as
      your going through here as the will slow your speed down dramatically. At
      91% complete, you will be going around a turn to the right. Look to your
      right to see a little path that will ave police going beserk again.

                        Event 3 - Merecedes CL55 AMG Delivery

           Objective: Deliver a Mercedes CL55 AMG in under 7:00:00

      0 to 15% into the race is pretty straight forward. Make the turns good,
      avoid traffic, speed past cops, etc., etc. Now at 15% you will be going on
      a straightaway. In the distanc is a fork that you will make a choice of
      going one way or the other. I suggest going to the left and staying to the
      left because you will be going faster on it. At about 25% complete, you will
      see a sign telling you to make a _SHARP_ turn right. Don't be a fool, go
      straight through it and into a secret path. When you have a split in the
      path, take the right one. Go on this until it rejoins to the main road.
    
      At about 43.5% complete, look to the right for a path. Take it and avoid the
      structures. This is a good place to lose the cops. When coming back onto the
      main road, immediately turn to the left onto another road. From my under-
      standing, you can save about 10 seconds by using this path instead of the
      others. At about 63% there will be a roadblock most of the time. If there
      is, don't be fooled by the hill. Go either on the the right or on the left
      of the hill to avoid the roadblock, if there is any.
    
      At 78% complete, there will be a dirt path to the left. There is usually a
      roadblock on the main road at about this place, so you can avoid it. At
      89.8% complete, there will be another dirt path to the left. Take it to save
      a few seconds. At 95.5% complete look to your left to see yet _another_ dirt
      path. This will leave the police crying for backup to arrive. Shortly after
      you will see yet _ANOTHER_ dirt path to the left a little ways down. Soon
      your finished.

      Take the Ford TS50 and you'll be up against the Ford, Mercedes, and the 
      Opel. In the first race, go past the columns acting like medians, and look
      to your right for a path. After going through there, enter back onto the
      main road. After going over a bridge you will turn to the left. Then you 
      will see a path to your right. Take it to the end and exit back onto the
      main road. After turning very slightly to the right, you will see telephone
      poles in the distance. To the left of them is another path. Take it until
      the end and slow down. Then take a right turn into yet another path. Slow
      down at the end of this and make a sharp right hand turn onto the main road.
      After awhile you will see signs telling you to turn right. Go through them
      instead and you'll be on a secret dirt path. This is an _excellent_ place to
      lose cops. Follow the path all the way down and go off the jump at the end.
      You will get huge air and be back onto the main road. Don't bother going
      towards the right after you jump because you'll just waste time. At the end
      where all you have to do is make a 180 degree turn, cut as close as you can
      to the wall to avoid wasting time. Repeat for the second lap.

      If you don't know the controls after the screen shows them, refer to my
      Controls section. Anyway it's real simple. If you get too far behind, press
      R3. When you get up to one, you can try to push them off the road and slow
      them down until they're caught. If they're too fast for you, you may call a
      roadblock or spike strips. If they avoid those, call in the helicopter. He
      will drop barrels to slow the car down. Once you get them all, you'll get
      your prize.

      This is a tuogh race. Because most of the streets are narrow, it's hard to
      shake the cops off your tail. You usually spin out because they try to block
      you. Then the helicopter with it's barrels. . .they're hard to avoid. I got
      busted once and a guy got arrested. The other two got busted twice. I guess
      that's why I won.

      This is actually easier than it seems. Because there's barely any side to
      the road, this is where spikes come in handy. Press R2 (or Triangle + R2 if
      manual) and wait for the strip. I got lucky and got all three at a time!
      Once their tires are out, just ram them until they stop.

      These five poit-to-point races are hard. If you come in first on the first
      three, you don't need to worry about winning on the last two which are
      extremely hard.

      This isn't that tough. I saw no helicopter during my whole race, so I assume
      you won't either. The police won't chase you right before the finish on the
      fourth lap.

      This is a point-to-point race. . .with cops :-( Anyway, it took me two tries
      and on the second one, I had over a minute left (That includes a bust). It's
      really easy, so try your best.

      This is EXTREMELY easy. All you have to do is put your sirens on, call for
      spike strip, and get the cars once they go over it. Seriously, this was the
      easiest so far in Ultimate Racer!

      This is a bit difficult at first, but you'll eventually get it. There is
      something you MUST do to pass this test. There is a massive shortcut that
      will save you about 10 seconds. Right from the start, turn left and follow
      that road. You will save valuable time that way.

      This is one hard race. It took me awhile to do it and after I did I saved
      the game :P Anyway, the cops are being total ******* in this event. The
      corvettes like to get ahead of you and slam you into the wall while your
      competition speeds away. I had it happen that I was in the lead just before
      the last lap, then I somehow ended up being 30 seconds behind the leader
      when I finished. Anyway, good luck on this event.

      Real simple: don't come in last place on each lap. It's as simple as that.
      Despite there being Lamborghinis, they don't pose a threat.

      Very easy event. I had over 30 seconds remaining. One shortcut to keep in
      mind is where all the rocks are dividing the four lane highway, go to the
      left after that, then go in the opening and into the other opening. This
      will save you a bunch of time.

      This is a bit difficult. Just ask for spikes whenever you get near a car and
      you'll be fine. When you run out of spikes, call for a helicopter.

      This will be easy. Despite there being McLarens, they are extremely easy. If
      you read my descriptions from above, you should know that I beat them
      easily. There is one shortcut that you should go through during the race. It
      is hard to tell you where, but there's a place where one road goes it's
      normal route and the other diverts off to the left. If you're on the right
      road, you should be on wood and have little turning capabilities. Don't
      worry, this will knock a second off your final lap time.

      Very difficult. Mainly because the Mustang Pursuit car is fast and the
      Ferrari is slow. They do everything to slow you down and then it's too late
      to win. I won on luck when the guy in first place was like 10 seconds ahead
      of me on my last lap, he went over the spikes set up for me and got busted.
      I won. Good luck!

      This race should be easy. You'll be racing against 4 opponents. Here's a tip
      to start off good: When the start is ticking down, don't hold the gas. In-
      stead, wait for 1, then put the pedal to the metal. You will get points for
      every person you pass (Just the first time). For the first lap, just follow
      behind the lead guy. Look at where he brakes and turns. Then on the second
      and third lap, just fly through the course. In no time you'll be finished.

                         -------------------------------------------                     
    
           Objective: Complete a lap in under 3:05:00.

      Cars available: Mercedes Benz CL55 AMG
    
      This might be a bit difficult because of the traffic. When you're going over
      a hundred, be careful because a car could hit you in a second, ruining your
      time. Actually this is easy. If you don't succeed your first time, see if
      you remember where any shortcuts were. They could help by cutting a second
      or two off your final time. Race conservatively and you do just fine.

                           Event 3 - Ford TS50 Lap Knockout

                      finish line each lap.

                      Tracks - (none)
    
      Cars available: Ford TS50
    
      All you have to do is be in front of someone at the end of each lap. As soon
      as the guy in last place crosses the finish line he will be eliminated. Race
      to the finish. When you win, you'll get your rewards.

      Cars available: Lotus Elise
    
      This race should be easy. You'll be racing against 4 opponents. For the
      first lap, just follow behind the lead guy. Look at where he brakes and
      turns. Then on the second and third lap, just fly through the course. In no
      time you'll be finished.

      Cars available: Jaguar XKR Coupe
    
      This race can be difficult for beginners. The handling on the Jaguar is hard
      to cope with. You tend to slide when going at high speeds. Just learn to
      handle it and you'll do fine in the race.
    
      The points are:
    
      1st place: 10 points
      2nd place:  6 points
      3rd place:  4 points

      This race will be difficult for begginers. Mainly because the BMW is fast.
      Just race like normal and you'll win the event.

                         Event 8 - General Motors Time Trial

           Objective: Complete a lap in under 3:30:00. You only have three laps to
                      accomplish this.
    
              Reward: Events - (none)
                      Cars   - (none)
                      Tracks - Island Outskirts II
    
      Cars available: Opel Speedster, Vauxhall VX 220
    
      Just race like you always do in other knockouts. But, you may take more than
      three tries because the traffic is frustrating...
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
                        Event 9 - U.K. vs. Germany Tournament
                        -------------------------------------                    
    
           Objective: Finish first in points at the end of the fifth race.

      Cars available: BMW M5, Jaguar XKR Coupe
    
      I would recommend using the BMW. It's easier to handle and brakes faster in
      my opinion. Just make sure to come in first to ace the event.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
                          Event 10 - Point-to-Point Series
                          --------------------------------

      Cars available: BMW M5, HSV GTS Coupe, Jaguar XKR Coupe
    
      These races are all straight through. So that means that it's one lap, not
      two or three. Just drive your best and you'll do fine.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
                           Event 11 - Outback Time Trial
                           -----------------------------

      Cars available: HSV GTS Coupe
    
      This can be hard because of all the traffic. Just remember some shortcuts
      from when you previously raced this course before, especially the one by the
      tunnel.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
                          Event 12 - U.S. vs. U.K. Knockout

      Cars available: Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Mustang SVT Cobra R
    
      This race is hard. I would suggest picking the Aston Martin. Even though I
      did it with the Ford, it was extremely difficult. Just make sure you don't
      place last in each race and you'll win the event and unlock Events 18 and
      19.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Cars available: Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, BMW Z8, Ferrari 360 Spider
    
      I found this race easy to beat with the BMW. Once you take the road, there's
      no stopping you!

                          Event 14 - Mediterranean Knockout

      Cars available: BMW M5, HSV GTS Coupe, Jaguar XKR Coupe
    
      Just don't come in last for all three races. At least there are no laps on
      the last course. . .

      Hmmm. . . I wonder what car you should use. I shouldn't even tell you. . .
      When you pick your car, just make sure you come in first for points.

      Come in first in this race by completing three laps at Outback II. I would
      suggest picking the Ferrari.

      This race will be fun! Now you get to drive a Lamborghini! But concentrate
      on winning rather than on the car. Once three laps are completed and you
      come in first place, you win the Lamborghini Murcielago!

      You should know by now that I LOVE Porsches. So that's what I'm picking.
      Anyway once you pick your car, just make sure your not in last place after
      each lap. Once you unlock Event 28, you could beat that then beat Event 30!
      But for now we're going in order. . .

      This will be an interesting race :-) I would pick the Murcielago. This will
      be a tough race. Remember the race earlier with all the Lamborghinis? Well
      that was hard, now think of this. Three times the pressure on you this time.
      Not to mention this is one of my worst courses I race on :-( Just try your
      best and have faith in yourself :-)

      Complete a lap in under 3:30:00 at Fall Wind II. You only have 5 laps to ac-
      complish this. Once you do, you will unlock track 28 which can then be raced
      to unlock the final race. Just concentrate on finishing this in under the
      time limit without hitting any cars roaming around :-)

      Finally, an event I can enjoy with competition! This event is going to be
      amazing. I would pick the Porsche 911 Turbo, because Porsche are my favorite
      cars :). Note that these races are Point-To-Point which means no laps.

                       Event 27 - Lamborghini Past vs Present
                       --------------------------------------                   
    
           Objective: Come first in points
    
              Reward: Events - 29
                      Cars   - (none)
                      Tracks - Rocky Canyons
    
      Cars available: Lamborghini Murcielago
    
      Be sure to come in first in points after the four races are done. Since
      there are all Lamborghinis, this race is going to be a _bit_ fast ;-)

                   Event 28 - McLaren F1 Invitational Tournament

      Cars available: McLaren Cars Limited: McLaren F1
    
      These races actually easier than the previous event. You will be racing
      against supercars which go 0-60 in 3.2 secs! Even though you would expect
      this to be hard, it's reall actually average. Come first in points and you
      win (duh!).

                   Event 29 - Mercedes CLK GTR Invitational Race
                   ---------------------------------------------               
    
           Objective: Come in first

      Cars available: Mercedes Benz CLK GTR
    
      This has to be one of the HARDEST events of all. Seriously, it took me about
      an hour and a half to complete it. Anyway, use all the shortcuts you know
      and hang on for the ride of your life!

                      Event 30 - McLaren F1 LM Endurance Race
                      ---------------------------------------                  
    
           Objective: Complete ten laps and come in first
    
              Reward: Events - 31
                      Cars   - (none)
                      Tracks - (none)
    
      Cars available: McLaren Cars Limited: McLaren F1 LM
    
      I found this easy. Just use all the shortcuts you know. A really good short-
      cut is to the left of the start. You could save about 5 seconds going this
      way. Once you win, you unlock a secret event!

                     Event 31 - Ferrari F50 Endurance Challenge
                     ------------------------------------------                 
    
           Objective: Complete three laps and come in first
    
              Reward: Events - 32 (After completing ALL of Ultimate Racer)

                      Tracks - (none)
    
      Cars available: Ferrari F50
    
      This is a nice race. I got it on my fourth try. The biggest challenge is the
      cars. Watch out for them otherwise you'll lose the race.

      o  Tips for clean race/lap, lead all laps, or win a challenge race:
    
           1) Use the following setup options: Opponent Type: Same, Catch Up: Off,
                                               Traffic: Off.
    
           2) Select other options/race type as needed to unlock car.
    
           3) Select a slower car. (I use the Lotus Elise.)
    
           4) Select an easy  track that you are very familiar with. (I use the
              National Forest with every shortcut except through the water next to
              the bridge.)
    
           If you use the information above, for example, you should only have to
           slow down next to the lumber mill and just before the bridge after the
           last turn. (Sent in by: Michael Blank)

      You know when you get NFS points? Well, when you get enough, you unlock
      secret cars. This is the list that tells you how many points you need for
      the cars. If you know any additional ones or if I make a mistake, please E-
      Mail me (address found at top of document). Also, don't cheat :P I heard
      about that cheat that you press L2 or R2 at the finish line and if you time
      it right, you will get 175,00 NFS points or 300,000 some. But play it the
      right way : )

      Length    : 4.950 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 50 to 278 ft
    
      Difficulty: Beginner
    
      Shortcuts : o  At the second turn you will be given the option of going one
                     of two ways. Go to the left, simply because you will be going
                     faster.
    
                  o  After turning left go to the right, unless you are going so
                     fast that you can't stop in time to make the turn. In that
                     case, go to the left.
    
                  o  Right before the tunnel you can go two ways. For intermed-
                     iates and beginners, go right. For experts that want to cut
                     off a few seconds, go left. After going on the dirt road, you
                     will see a fork in the road. I would take the left to cut
                     even more seconds off. After going left, you will barely see
                     a right hand turn, but go through it. After you go under a
                     bridge, you will see another fork. Take the left in your in
                     for a challenge. You will go across a river, creek, brook, or
                     whatever and see a pipe. Bear to the left slightly so you
                     don't hit it.

      National Forest

      Unlocked  : Event 1 (Championship)
    
      Length    : 4.620 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 190 to 347 ft
    
      Difficulty: Beginner
    
      Shortcuts : o  From the start, bear right and head for the tree with a path
                     cut into it. Follow this path straight and you will reach the
                     main road. Instead of going on the road, jump right across it
                     and back onto the dirt road. You will eventually reach the
                     main road.
    
                  o  After reaching the "freeway", you will have a choice of going
                     left or right. Go to the left to cut off approximately three
                     seconds.
    
                  o  After going under the bridge after the freeway, go left onto
                     the dirt road.
    
                  o  At the final turn, stay to the right and go past the bridge
                     and go inbetween the tree and wall. Then go through the sign
                     for national park if you want some fun.

      Scenic Drive
      ------------ 
    
      Unlocked  : (default)
    
      Length    : 7.750 mi (point-to-point)
    
      Elevation : 50 to 347 ft
    
      Difficulty: Advanced
    
      Shortcuts : o  After going through the tunnel, you will see a big hill going
                     up. For fast cars, as soon as you land, veer right to just
                     make the turn to the dirt road. Then make a right on the dirt
                     road to cross the main road and back onto the dirt road. Make
                     sure you are stable enough to make it through the tree. If
                     you want fun, go through the sign :)
    
                  o  After going off the dirt path, you will go downhill. Look for
                     a dirt road to the right.
    
                  o  After the dirt road, go through the tunnel and at the end of
                     the road, go to the right.
    
                  o  Right before the yellow, flashing signs you will see a dirt
                     path to the right. Take it. Follow it down and go through the
                     pipe. You will go across a stream. Follow the path up and
                     under a bridge. Right after that, you'll see a path to the
                     left. After that, the dirt road goes to the main road.
    
                  o  After coming out of the dirt road and after going across the
                     bridge, you will see a choice between two roads. Take the
                     left on because you will be going faster.
    
                  o  Before the lighthouse you will see a fork. Take the left one
                     unless you are going so fast that you can't make the turn. In
                     that case, take the right.

      Desert Heat

      Unlocked  : (default)
    
      Length    : 5.190 mi (circuit
    
      Elevation : 82 to 484 ft
    
      Difficulty: Beginner
    
      Shortcuts : o  After going past the rocks posing as a median, you should see
                     a fork. Take the right to shave off a few seconds.
    
                  o  After going over a bridge with steel structures, you will
                     make a sharp turn to the left. After that you will see a dirt
                     path to your right. Take it. Right before it connects to the
                     main road, you will see another dirt road to the right. Take
                     it too. Take this exit slow and veer to the right when
                     exiting the dirt road. You will be on yet another dirt road.
                     You go off of a little jump at the end. You should see tele-
                     phone poles to your right. The ones on the ground is where
                     the next path is. Take it to cut a a few seconds. At the end
                     there will be a jump. Take it slow and veer to the right onto
                     the main road. Don't worry about the dirt road, it's useless.
    
                  o  This is hard to explain but... Eventually you will see yellow
                     signs to the left telling you to turn right. Go right through
                     them and you'll be on a dirt road. Follow this road to the
                     end for a big, big jump.
    
                  o  After the jump, go down the road. You will see an entrance to
                     the right. Don't go into it though becaue it'll just slow you
                     down.
    
                  o  At the final "U"-Turn, you will be able to take a path on the
                     other side of the waterfall. Don't, just cut the U-Turn as
                     close as possible without hitting catuses(sp?).

      Outback
      -------  
    
      Unlocked  : Event 11 (Championship)
    
      Length    : 5.460 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 163 to 597 ft
    
      Difficulty: Beginner
    
      Shortcuts : o  You will see a building at the start. To the left of it is a
                     path. Go into it. You will go through a toll booth and into a
                     building. After coming out of the building you will see an
                     airplane up ahead. Go through it and off of the jump.
    
                  o  After going off the jump you will curve to the right. You
                     will eventually see a path to the left. Take it. You will go
                     across a stream and back onto the main road.
    
                  o  Inside the tunnel there will be a sign telling you not to en-
                     ter. Bust through it to reveal a mine shaft. Go through it
                     and be cautious if you have a fast car because there's a jump
                     that will send you flying into the mountain. Eventuall you
                     will see the main road, but go straight into the tunnel. You
                     will come out onto the main road.
    
                  o  After the rocks posing as medians, there will be a very sharp
                     left turn (you will see it on your radar). Cut that as much
                     as you can without hitting the wall to your left. You can 
                     easily shave about 5 seconds off here.
    
                  o  When you enter the duststorm, look to your left. Right after
                     it passes, there will be a path to your left. Right before
                     you exit it, turn sharply to the left to go on another path.
                     Don't turn left when you exit because you will lose time.

      -------------  
    
      Unlocked  : Event 27 (Championship)
    
      Length    : 5.300 mi (point-to-point)
    
      Elevation : 82 to 597 ft
    
      Difficulty: Advanced
    
      Shortcuts : o  Right behind the yellow signs telling you to turn left, there
                     is a dirt path to the right. You will go back onto the main
                     road.
    
                  o  You will see the yellow signs again telling you to turn left.
                     Go to the right and onto a dirt path to avoid the sharp right
                     turn down the road.
    
                  o  After you exit the last shortcut that I mentioned, turn right
                     and go inbetween the signs. Follow this dirt road all the way
                     down and make a sharp right to avoid the sharp turn around
                     down the road.
    
                  o  Right after the rocks posing as medians, look to your left.
                     You will just barely see an opening. Go through it, across 
                     the main road, and into the next mine shaft. You will eventu-
                     ally end up in a tunnel (the main road).
    
                  o  After you exit the tunnel, you might be going too fast to no-
                     tice but, there will be a sign telling you to go 35 MPH 
                     around the turn. Right past this is a path. Take it to avoid
                     going uphill and losing speed.
    
                  o  Right after coming out of the last shortcut, you will see a
                     turn. Right after that, there will be a path to the left.

      Ancient Ruins

      Unlocked  : (default)
    
      Length    : 6.420 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 10 to 731 ft
    
      Difficulty: Beginner
    
      Shortcuts : o  After going around the first turn, you will see a path to the
                     left.
    
                  o  When you come out of the first tunnel, you will go down
                     several jumps goind downhill. There will be a U-Turn and to
                     the left is a path where you can shave off a few seconds.
    
                  o  After the last shortcut, you will go up a few hills. Eventu-
                     ally you will see red maple trees (I guess) and to the left
                     is a path.
    
                  o  Farther along the track you will see houses in the distance.
                     Keep an eye for a red sign that says "50". Directly to the
                     right of it is a major shortcut. You have to be careful on
                     this surface because it's easy to wipe out.

      Length    : 5.100 (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 10 to 292 ft
    
      Difficulty: Advanced
    
      Shortcuts : o  To the right of the third blue and white arrows telling you
                     to turn right. You will have to be cautious to not hit any-
                     thing.
    
                  o  After the fifth blue arrows telling you where to go, you will
                     make a turn. Afte you make it you will see an opening to the
                     left. Be careful not to slide or wipe out.
    
                  o  After the sixth blue arrows telling you where to go, you will
                     go down a road. You will then stumble upon trees in an area.
                     There is a shortcut in here.
    
                  o  You will reach a "town" eventually. When you do, look ahead
                     to see a fork when approaching. Take the right and hang on
                     for a slippery ride! Eventually you will be out. Don't bother
                     taking the right when coming out, it's not worth it. Just go
                     on the road to the finish.

      Mediterranean Paradise
      ----------------------
    
      Unlocked  : (default)
    
      Length    : 9.470 (point-to-point)
    
      Elevation : 9 to 824 ft
    
      Difficulty: Advanced
    
      Shortcuts : o  A bit far down the track you will see red maple trees. To the
                     right is just barely a shortcut.
    
                  o  After going through a "mini-tunnel" after the last shortcut,
                     to the right a bit down you will see an opening in small
                     mountain. Go in it to avoid the turn.
    
                  o  After going through the first "real tunnel", you will see
                     columns. To the right is a _small_ little dirt path. Take it
                     to avoid the annoying turn.
    
                  o  You will go under a msin bridge and see blue arrows telling
                     you to turn right. You will make a right hand turn, then a
                     left hand turn. Right after that left hand turn, you will see
                     a path to the left. You will slide alot when on it, so be
                     careful!
    
                  o  After coming out of the last shortcut, you will see large,
                     yellow, blinking lights. After a few windy turns, you will
                     see trees. In the middle of them is a path.
    
                  o  Eventually you will see a town in the distance. You will see
                     the main road curve to the left. Your path is straight ahead
                     of you. Since it's cobblestone, you will have to be extra
                     careful when on it. Mainly because there are places you can
                     hit that can stop you _completely_.
    
                  o  After you get some air going off of a bridge, you will turn
                     left. Then you will see arrows telling you to turn right. The
                     next shortcut is all the way to the right around this turn.
                     It will be hard to make going fast, so look out for it.

      Fall Winds
      ----------
    
      Unlocked  : (default)
    
      Length    : 6.990 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 1206 to 1810 ft
    
      Difficulty: Expert
    
      Shortcuts : o  After going through the first tunnel, there will be a slight
                     turn to the right. Right after that, there will be a path to
                     the right. Take it. At first it may seem like it's taking you
                     away from the track and a waste of time. But it's really cut-
                     ting alot of time off if driven properly without hitting any-
                     thing.
    
                  o  After coming out of that, you will turn to the right alot.
                     Then you will make your way downhill a bit. Look to your left
                     for a big boulder. You will have to make your way around
                     this. Once you do, you will be inside a mountain. The surface
                     you are on is planks of wood, so you're not going to have a-
                     lot of traction. When you make it out of the mountain, you e-
                     ventually end up back on the main road.
    
                  o  After copming out, you will eventually see a sign saying
                     "HALE'S GULLEY NATIONAL MONUMENT". Behind this to the right
                     is a little shortcut. A fun thing is going off of the stair-
                     way going up. You could get about 400 NFS points for going
                     off of it.

      Alpine Trail
      ------------
    
      Unlocked  : Event 15 (Ultimate Racer)
    
      Length    : 5.670 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 1250 to 1620 ft
    
      Difficulty: Expert
    
      Shortcuts : o  This is the best shortcut in the _WHOLE_ game. When you start
                     off, go on the main road until you see a dirt path. Follow it
                     past a house. You will then see the main road again. Instead
                     of going on the main road, go straight. You will be on anoth-
                     er dirt road. When you reach the end, go again on the dirt
                     road ahead! This is the end of this MAJOR shortcut. You could
                     cut of 15 seconds with this!
    
                  o  This is hard to explain. You will eventually see alot of
                     trees to your left. Then the barrier disappears and you could
                     turn left tocut the main road. When you do, you will be on a
                     dirt road. On average, you could cut off about 3 seconds.
    
                  o  After the S-Curves, you will see yellow signs. To the right a
                     bit down, is a shortcut which cuts the main road that turns.
    
                  o  After the 270 degree turn, you will turn three more times be-
                     fore going straight into the next shortcut. This saves about
                     3 seconds also.

      Autumn Crossing

      Unlocked  : Event 17 (Ultimate Racer)
    
      Length    : 10.980 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 1206 to 1810 ft
    
      Difficulty: Expert
    
      Shortcuts : o  This is also hard to explain. There will be a certain U-Turn
                     where you can take the inside to the left. I can't really say
                     where it is because there aren't that many landmarks around.
    
                  o  After the last shortcut, a short way down the road to the
                     left is a dirt path in which you can enter. It's hard to see
                     so take the turn cautiously.
    
                  o  After coming out of the last shortcut, make your first "real"
                     turn. After that, look to your left for a shortcut.
    
                  o  You will eventually go through a tunnel. After that, you will
                     go on a dirt road and rejoin to the main road. When you do,
                     you will make a U-Turn. After that, look to your left and you
                     will see that the barrier will disappear. When it does, take
                     the dirt road and follow it.
    
                  o  After the S-Curves, you will make a squigly turn :) Then look
                     to your right to yur right and you'll see a dirt road. It'll
                     eliminate the curved road to the left.
    
                  o  After that, you will make a 270 degree turn. Then follow that
                     road a few more turns then go straight to find yet another
                     shortcut. This will eliminate a long turn.

      Island Outskirts

      Unlocked  : (default)
    
      Length    : 5.500 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 3 to 359 ft
    
      Difficulty: Advanced
    
      Shortcuts : o  After going through the miniture S-Curves in the beginning,
                     you will turn left. Go a little up the road and you'll see a
                     fork. Turn right because there's more room for speed and less
                     turns than the other one.
    
                  o  After passing the village, you will make a wide 180 degree
                     turn. Look to your right and you'll see a road blocked off.
                     Go through the barriers for a shortcut.
    
                  o  Eventually you will be on a mini highway. You will see a left
                     and right ahead. Take the right for a shortcut that's down
                     the road a bit.
    
                  o  On the fourth turn you will see a path to the right, take it.
                     You will desend quickly down to a beach. The only thing
                     you'll have to look out for is the trees in the middle of
                     your path. Just go around them.

      Length    : 7.500 mi (circuit)
    
      Elevation : 21 to 945 ft
    
      Difficulty: Expert
    
      Shortcuts : o  Go down and you'll see a road to the left. TAKE IT. This is
                     probably the second best shortcut in the game. You can cut so
                     much time off by taking this.
    
                  o  When you come out of the last shortcut, don't turn right onto
                     the highway. Instead go around it to the left and you'll see
                     a...I don't know. Anyway, you have to make sure not to hit
                     the structure, and since you're on the inside, you will cut
                     time off.
    
                  o  Once you see the first set of "huts", look right in front of
                     them for a shortcut.
    
                  o  Once you see the third pair, look right before them for a
                     shortcut.
    
                  o  Once entering the S-Curves, look to the right for a little
                     shortcut.
    
                  o  After the striaghtaway in the middle of the S-Curves, make a
                     few turns and look to your right to see a shortcut.

                                       FAQ
    
    ==============================================================================
    
      This section will hopefully clear up most of the E-Mails I get for various
      questions.
    
      Q.) What is a Clean Race?
      A.) A Clean Race is when you complete a race without hitting any big objects
          in your way. These include cars, walls, and big bushes. These do not in-
          clude small bushes and small signs.
    
      Q.) I completed all of Ultimate Racer and I can't get Event 32 to open! How
          do you?
      A.) You have to complete every event in World Racing and Ultimate Racer to
          unlock it.
    
                                 More Coming Soon!
