1. Introduction
---------------
I had a hard time playing this game at first and since no guides was made, I
decided that I should create one for new players that needs some help.  Even
though I said I had a hard time playing it, there's only two things you really
need to become good in this game : Patience and Practice.  You'll need to do
at least 1000 laps for this.  For reference, it took me about a month to
finish it completely, that is, to get all the cards in the Trading Card Album.

The game is a simulation of the IndyCar Series, it's a racing game with
open-wheel car, better known as Formula 1.  It's also a very dangerous game,
going over 220 mph on a small track with at least 20 cars can quickly lead to
disaster!

The menu in the game has :
Quick race       : Choose one of 15 tracks to race.
Indycar Series   : Series of 15 tracks to race, one after the other.
Indianapolis 500 : Only one track to race.
Multiplayer      : Play with a network connection.
Masterclass      : Tutorial
Player Profile   : Load or Edit your saved game.
Options          : Change your preferences.



2. General Tips
---------------
For any new players, here's what I suggest : Start with the Indycar Series
with 20 laps at Normal, then try all the Masterclass, doesn't matter if you
pass them or not, do the Indycar series again with 20 laps but at Pro and do
the Masterclass again to fully comprehend and master every one of them since
they're very important in order to be a virtual professional driver! :-)

I also suggest, in Options / Advanced Game Options, to use these settings :
Transmission        : Manual
Automatic AI Adjust : On - This will make the computer go slower if you're not
                      in first position, but if you are in first position, the
                      computer will go at 100% efficiency.
Caution Autodrive   : Off - So that you can be in control of your car during a
                      yellow flag.
Traction Control    : Off
Speed Assist        : Off

When a race is beginning, you can set the fuel setting with the right and left
arrow on your D-Pad, it goes from 0 to 7. And the Up and Down arrow is for the
Weight Jacker, goes from -8 to 8.

Whatever or wherever you're racing, I found that putting the fuel setting to
7 will always be the best option for the starts, restarts, taking the lead
and at the end of the race when doing a full distance race. When you're in the
lead, dial back the fuel setting to 3. This way you can squeeze out a couple
of extra laps in your stent.

Most tracks needs a weight jacker of +8, just a few needs it at -8, see the
section Indycar Series (Garage) for the full details.

Just before entering the pit, don't go over 60 mph, in some races, you can see
a pole with a 76 on it, which I think means that the maximum speed for
entering the pit is 76, but even entering the pit at 70 will get me a black
flag after I left it.

Remember that if you had a bad qualification time, just leave the series and
go back in to continue the series, you'll have another chance for the
qualification.

Here's some statistics on how much time it takes to do a Full Distance of 200
laps for each track:
             | Seconds | Minutes
Phoenix      | 3868    | 65
Richmond     | 4000    | 67
Pikes Peak   | 4347    | 73
Nazareth     | 4376    | 73
Gateway      | 4540    | 76
Nashville    | 4588    | 77
Texas        | 4696    | 78
Kentucky     | 4708    | 79
Chicagoland  | 4860    | 81
Kansas       | 4928    | 82
Miami        | 5232    | 87
Michigan     | 6332    | 106
California   | 6356    | 106
Indianapolis | 7580    | 126



3. Indycar Series (Garage)
--------------------------
To be able to modify the settings of your car, you need to select Test Drive,
then select the Go to garage option when you are in your pit box. You will
then be able to modify the settings of your car for Racing and for Qualifying,
they can be both different. If the settings for Qualifying and Racing are the
exact same, go to the unchanged setting and then select "Copy from other
setup".

Entering these settings takes time, but you only need to do it once, they will
be saved on your memory card after.

Some settings for the Front Wing below have decimals, in the garage, you
cannot set decimals, however when you are in the pit, just before you start
the race, you can.

Note that race 15 is not listed because it's the same as race 6 which is
Texas.

These settings comes from the official website of Codemasters, they company
behind the game. They have the same settings for both Qualifying and Racing.
They were optimized by Starfleet001 who got very good lap time (see the Lap
Record section). His modifications of Codemasters' settings are where the
arrows are pointing. He also made some modifications for the Racing setups,
only the difference from Qualifying will be shown.

4. Masterclass
--------------
This is the tutorial with 8 different lessons with former Indycar driver Eddie
Cheever Jr., it is a must to do them, listen carefully to the instructions,
you have to remember everything.  In fact, it's so important, it's a good
thing to do the tutorial two times.

1. Basic Car Control (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

Do one lap as fast as you can.  The trick is to speed up right at the
beginning for a maximum top speed as soon as possible, don't worry about the
pace car, it will peel off when you pass it.  Raise your weight jacker to the
max. Down the straights shift to 6th and when you're about to enter in the
turns, downshift to 5th.

2. Advanced Car Control (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

Do 3 laps as fast as you can.  Raise you weight jacker to the top, set your
engine to 7 and fly!  Same strategy as lesson 1.

3. Maximizing Performance (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

Right when you start, brake, turn back and enter the pit by the wrong side,
doesn't matter, you'll get in the pit faster that way.  Tune your car by
selecting the 'Go to garage' and use the Qualifying settings for the
Indianapolis track in the section 'Indycar Series Garage Setups.'

4. Qualifications (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

When you start, head for the pit, then set your fuel to 4, raise your front
wing to the maximum.  On the race, set your engine to 7 and max your weight
jacker.  Go to gear 5 at 230 mph and to gear 6 at 237 mph when racing.  With
a little practice, you'll get the gold that way.

5. Racing Techniques (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

Race and overtake at least one car.  When you start, you'll be doing about
240 mph, just keep this speed and pass between the two first cars, so just
at the start you can overtake 2 cars.

6. The Pits (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

Head to the pit and get back in the race while keeping your position.  You can
pass the cars while making the entry to pit road. Just be sure not to crash
into any cars or be over the speed limit when entering. Set your pit options
to change tires and add fuel for about 5 laps.  Doing this will keep you in
the lead going back onto the track

7. The Caution Period (Indianapolis Motor Speedway)

Right when you start you'll be the witness of a car over-steering and
crashing, just follow the next car with the 2 green arrows on top of it and
don't overtake it.  After about 2 laps, the green arrows will go away and
it's now time to race again, overtake at least one car for the last 4 laps.

8. The Indycar Series (Texas Motor Speedway)

You must finish at least in third position, it will take a lot of tries to
get it right.  To finish first, hit the acceleration as soon as you can and
never take it off, then duplicate exactly the path each car is taking.  You
will be driving Sam Hornish Jr.'s car.



5. Lap Record

Speed is in mph and best times in Racing is based on full fuel runs.
