    |Introduction [INTR]|
    +-------------------+
    
    This is just a short guide to all the multiplayer objectives in each playlist
    and the rewards for completing 5,10,15 and all of the relevant playlist.  I
    will also add in the group objectives however since the game doesn't have a
    list that you can freely view and they appear to be picked at random I can't be
    sure I have them all or if they change dependent on the number of players in
    your group.
    
    Now, all objectives are not available for you to complete at the start, infact
    only 3 of the 20 total you can actually try and complete.  Once you have
    completed that objective the game moves it to the bottom of the list and the
    next one down replaces it and this continues until you complete them all.

    |Group Objectives [GOBJ]|
    +-----------------------+
    
    The reason these don't show values is because I suspect (from what little I've
    seen anyway) that the value changes dependent on the number of players in the
    playgroup, with more players meaning higher values (so more near misses needed
    for more players for example).  In the descriptions all values which I suspect
    change I will replace with an X.

    Accumulate X dirty passes

    if anyone can shed light on this then it will be appreciated).

    |Hints and Tips [HNTP]|
    +---------------------+
    
    Hopefully some tips to help you to complete some of these challenges, although
    I won't go over the obvious ones like, come 1st in a session, as if you can't
    get it, you just need to get better although a tip for some would be, brakes
    exist USE THEM.
    
    -Accumulating Draft/Slipstream Passing
    Normally at the beginning of the race when everyone is lumped together would be
    a good place to accumulate this.  With everyone bunched together it should be
    easy to obtain.  Another alternative that isn't too difficult is a straight
    road, as long as the one in front isn't weaving around the road it should be
    fairly easy to get the slipstream boost.
    
    -Keeping top speed
    Well, first you need a nice long straight road, highways are your best bet,
    then it's getting up to speed.  If possible use slipstream boosts and alot of
    nitrous to get you up to speed and keep you there and if you can, stay in
    oncoming to keep the nitrous flowing.
    
    -Clean sections
    For these you should hope to start at the back of the pack and stay there to
    concentrate on getting those clean sections otherwise you will have alot of
    trouble with other racers around.  For the ones where you have to place in a
    certain position, just hope you only have a room where the number of players
    equals the position you need.  Alternatively, if you start at the front, stay
    at the front, far in front.  These objectives will probably be very hard and
    most likely involve a bit of luck to complete (although complete highway stages
    will be a life saver).
    
    -Not letting anyone pass
    Two easy ways I can see.  Either start in front and stay in front or start at
    the back and stay at the back.  If you start in the middle of the pack, with
    the mess it sticks you in, chances are you will be swapping places left and
    right.
    
    -Get first within 30 seconds before the end?
    Luck.  That's all I have to say.  If you get lucky enough to find someone else
    with a similar skill level you could have a good battle for first place and get
    it then.  However, if you can storm ahead, you might have to slow down your
    racing to give you that chance.
    
    +-----------------------+
    |How you can help [HYCH]|
    +-----------------------+
    
    If you see any mistakes contact me and I will fix it giving you credit where it
    is due.  Any information on group objectives will help, specifically if there
    are any I don't have and if the requirements increase if the number in your
    group increases as well (which I suspect is the case).

    Either PM me through GameFAQs or you can send me an email at

    email's subject so I don't ignore it.  I would also prefer it to be in proper
    English and easily readable however I do know that English is not everyone's
    first language so I will allow some tollerance.
    
    I also regularly visit another racing board where we do discuss the games and
    hold some competitions (nothing fancy though) so if you do want some
