    2.2 - Kudos
    ********************************************
    
    Kudos are what set Project Gotham (And it's predecessor, Metropolis Street 
    Racer for Dreamcast) apart from other racing games. Instead of coming in first
    place or getting a fastest time, you have to concentrate on style in addition 
    to doing well in the race. Hopefully this section will teach you how to get 
    those kudos, but the best way to rack up kudos is to practice getting them.
    
    ---------------
    What Are Kudos?
    ---------------
    
    Kudos are a system of points which are used for getting cars and getting
    medals. Medals gained can go towards unlocking cars, Free Roam, and equal
    progress in Kudos Challenge.
    
    -------------------
    How Do I Get Kudos?
    -------------------
    
    There are two times when you can get kudos, in a race and as a bonus after a
    race in Kudos Challenge. There are six ways to get kudos in a race:
    
    1. Slides - When going around a corner you can tap the handbrake (A) and slide
    around the corner or tap the brake (L) then accelerate (R) through the rest of
    the turn. Use the handbrake method at first, it's easier to do.
    
    2. Jumps - If you go over a hill with enough speed and get some air you will
    get kudos based on how long the jump lasted.
    
    3. 360s - If you manage to do a 360-degree spin, you will get kudos for it. It
    isn't really worth it to try for this.
    
    4. Overtakes - When you overtake (Pass) another car in a one on one, street
    race or overtake challenge you will get 10 kudos when you overtake a car.
    
    5. Clean Section bonuses - Every time you pass a checkpoint you have a chance
    to get this. If you make it between consecutive checkpoints in a race without
    hitting any walls or other cars more than once you will get this. The amount
    you get varies depending on the race.
    
    6. Time bonuses - If you're playing a hot lap race, timed run, or style
    challenge and still have time on the clock when you finish, you get kudos based
    on how much time you have left on the clock. The amount of kudos you get after
    a race is based on what you set the difficulty of the race to before the race.
    
    Before the race, you can adjust a variable that will make the race
    easier/harder. If you make it easier you will get less kudos after the race,
    making it harder will give you more kudos. You can double the total amount
    amount of kudos you get in race by using a joker, but be careful when you use
    one as you only get one per level.
    
    You can also get large amounts of kudos by comboing. After you do one of the
    first five things in the above list to get kudos, the amount of kudos which
    will be added to your score is displayed below the score. That stays there for
    about three seconds until it is added to your score. In that three seconds you
    can do something else in that list to continue adding to that amount. If you
    pull of a combo you will get additional kudos based on how many different
    things you did. In order to combo more and get bigger combos, you'll have to
    use a technique which I call forcing slides. It's just that, forcing yourself
    to slide. Tap your handbrake or continually swerve left and right until you
    start to slide. It's that simple. Be sure to practice it a bit so you don't end
    up slamming into a wall when you've got a big combo going!

    2.3 - Getting Started/Game Modes/Options
    ********************************************
    
    ------------------------------------
    Starting the game for the first time
    ------------------------------------
    
    When you start the game for the first time you will be asked to create a
    driver. A driver is just a save file. Put in your name, choose your favorite
    license plate style, change the text on it, choose a helmet for your driver
    (Which can be seen during the game) and continue. Don't worry, if you want to
    change your license plate or change your helmet style you can at any time by
    going to the options menu and going to the driver manager. After you choose
    that, you can decide where you want to save your game. Once you finish that
    you'll be taken to the main menu.
    
    ---------
    Main Menu
    ---------
    
    On the main menu you will be able to choose from these game modes and options:
    
    Quick Race - A street race against five opponents. There are four difficulty
    levels, come in at least 3rd place in every level to unlock the next.
    
    Arcade Race - A race for kudos. There are four difficulty levels. Earn the
    minimum number of kudos for a bronze medal in each race on a level to unlock
    the next level.
    
    Kudos Challenge - A series of races spanning 13 levels (One is hidden) with
    many types of races. Earning a bronze medal in each race on a level will unlock
    the next level.
    
    Time Attack - Race alone to get the fastest lap time you can. Ghosts can be
    saved and raced against.
    
    Medal Pursuit (NOTE: This does not become unlocked until you have 5 hours of
    play time on your save) - Choose a car and beat the lap times on that car's
    course to unlock new paint jobs for that car.
    
    Multiplayer - Race together with up to three friends on any of the tracks you
    have unlocked.  Multiplayer options can be changed in the options menu.
    
    Options - Adjust various gameplay options (Detailed in next section).

    Multiplayer options include a time of day setting, laps setting (1, 2, 3, 5,
    10, 20 or 30 laps), choose whether the person who wins is determined by who
    comes in first place or who gets more kudos, toggle the split-screen view
    between horizontal and vertical and change the extra finish time (5, 6, 7, 8,
    9, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds) which is how long everyone else has to finish
    the race after the first person has
    
    Controller Settings - Lets you choose from four different control schemes, turn
    vibration on/off and turn auto-reverse on/off.

    ********************************************
    2.4 - Medals
    ********************************************
    
    Medals are awarded to you after every race. Depending on your performance, you
    will get either a gold, silver or bronze medal. Each mode has different
    criteria for all three types of medals. In Quick Race you get a gold medal for
    1st place, a silver for 2nd place and a bronze for 3rd place. Arcade Race
    and Kudos Challenge both award them based on the amount of kudos you earn in a
    race. Medal Pursuit awards them based on your time. All medal Persuit does with
    medals is gives you different paint jobs for the car you used based on what you
    get, in the other modes they determine progress. Getting at least a bronze
    medal in a level in Quick Race, Arcade Race or Kudos Challenge will unlock the
    next level. Getting all gold medals for a level in Quick Race or Arcade Race
    will unlock a car. Getting only gold and silver metals in certain levels in
    Kudos Challenge will unlock other things.
    
    ********************************************
    2.5 - The Game Screen
    ********************************************
    
    When you're in the game there will be information regarding the race on the
    left hand side of the screen and your speedometer and tachometer on the right.
    Your tachometer is displayed above your speedometer in the lower-right corner
    along with an odometer (Which isn't important unless your interested in how far
    you've driven) and a display showing what gear your car is in. On the left hand
    side of the screen information regarding your current race is displayed. This
    will change depending on the race, it shows things such as your place/time
    left, lap time, etc. Below it is the track map. Your car is displayed as an
    arrow, all others are displayed as blue dots. The green line is the starting
    line and the yellow lines are checkpoints.
    
    --------------
    The Pause Menu
    --------------
    
    Pressing start at any time during a race will bring up the pause menu and pause
    the game. Here you can continue the race, restart the race, turn the ghost car
    off for your current lap (Only in hot laps and time attack mode), change camera
    options, change audio options and quit the race. Choosing 'Camera' will bring
    up another menu. Mode lets change the camera angle, lens does what it says and
    changes the lens to give you more view options and the bars below let you
    fine-tune the camera to fit your preferences. Going to 'Radio/CD' brings up the
    audio menu. You can adjust the sound effects music and ambiance volume and
    choose an audio mode. Off means no music, radio plays all the songs from the
    game's soundtrack with a DJ from one of the radio stations in the game
    announcing the songs, user radio is the same except plays the playlist you have
    in the game which can be edited in the music manager in options and CD plays
    all the songs in order without the DJs. You can change the track yourself.
    
    ===============================================================================
    3. The Cities & Neighborhoods
    ===============================================================================
    
    Note: This is not a listing of the tracks in the game, but the cities and
    neighborhoods where the tracks are located. A complete listing of the tracks
    and their lengths can be found near the end of this FAQ.
    
    ********************************************
    3.1 - San Francisco
    ********************************************
    
    ------------------
    Financial District
    ------------------
    
    Not much in terms of difficulty here, all the streets are very wide and most
    turns are 90 degree angles (Or less). There are no hills at all in this
    neighborhood.
    What to watch out for: Nothing, really.
    
    ----------------
    Fishermans Wharf
    ----------------
    
    A bit harder than the Financial District. There are quite a few wide roads but
    some narrow ones are thrown in, there are some hills and a switchback.
    What to watch out for: There is a narrow road that runs close
    to the water that tends to have a sharp turn at one end and near it there is a
    dead-end of sorts that will require you to make a sharp turn and then two 90
    degree turns close to it. Further in there is a very large hill with Cable Car
    tracks running with a road that leads to the top of the switchback (Be VERY
    careful on that turn) and one more road further up after that where you also
    have to be careful when turning onto. The switchback has a narrow road leading
    to it on the bottom and most courses make you make the 180 degree turn onto it
    and onto the road above it.
    
    ---------------
    Pacific Heights
    ---------------
    
    Like the Financial District, the streets here are all very vide and here every
    turn will be a 90 degree angle. The catch? The hills. Be vary careful here as
    the hills can easily get the better of you if you're not careful.
    What to watch out for: The brick street that has two planters with trees in
    them. It's located at the top of the biggest hill in the neighborhood.
    
    ********************************************
    3.2 - London
    ********************************************
    
    ---------
    Trafalgar
    ---------
    
    Not all that bad, the roads are pretty wide and not too many difficult turns.
    There are some statues in the streets that you do need to be careful of,
    though.
    What to watch out for: The statues in the streets. There is one road that has
    most of them but there is one atop some stairs that are used in a few tracks
    and a traffic light in the middle of the road near a small park. Also be
    careful when going down the stairs as you have to turn right after landing.
    There is also a building near the stairs that spans across the road with arches
    dividing up the road.
    
    ---------------
    St. James' Park
    ---------------
    
    Similar to Trafalgar in that there are some statues in the middle of one road
    (The one farthest away from the park) and instead of one set of stairs there
    are two. There are straight roads along side the park and at one end some
    monuments that you'll have to navigate around. There are many paths inside the
    park, but the are mostly straight and not too much to worry about.
    What to watch out for: The statues and the stairs (Like in Trafalgar). There
    are also usually some sharp turns going into and out of the park.
    
    -----------
    Westminster
    -----------
    
    This area is mostly made up of very long, narrow roads that are relatively
    straight. Just don't let the twists in them take you by surprise. Often the
    turns take you around an object in the intersection or around something bigger.
    What to watch out for: The objects in the middle of the turns, make sure to go
    a bit slower than usual to deal with them.
    
    ********************************************
    3.3 - Tokyo
    ********************************************
    
    -------
    Asakusa
    -------
    
    This one is a mixed bag with some big streets and narrow alleys. On one side of
    the river there is a winding road that makes sharp turns by a small tunnel. On
    the other side there are the bigger roads and the alleys mixed together. Most
    tracks mostly stay on the bigger roads and veer into the alleys only for a
    little bit. In one corner there is a temple (Or something) with a vary narrow
    round leading directly towards it and a sharp turn onto an equally narrow
    street.
    What to watch out for: The narrow alleys scattered across the area, especially
    the one leading up to the temple which has a sharp turn at the end.
    
    -------
    Shibuya
    -------
    
    Also mixed with big roads and narrow streets, but with much fewer narrow
    streets than Asakusa. Near the bus terminal there are a few places where the
    road is divided down the center and there is an underpass where the road is
    split into three. Not much other than that except sometimes there tend to be
    some nasty turns here and there.
    What to watch out for: The areas near the bus terminal where the road is
    divided and the underpass. The underpass has pillars in it that divide the road
    into two parts, I tend to use the outside section the most unless there is a
    turn right after it. In that case, I would take the inside section.
    
    --------
    Shinjuku
    --------
    
    Probably the easiest of all the areas in Tokyo, mostly wide open roads and easy
    turns.
    What to watch out for: There is a road that is divided in the middle, in some
    races one side is blocked off but in others you come onto it after a turn and
    can easily hit the divider.
    
    ********************************************
    3.4 - New York
    ********************************************
    
    ------------
    Central Park
    ------------
    
    In my opinion, this is the hardest area. The park itself consists of many very
    narrow dirt paths and roads which make sharp turns. By happy when you get to
    drive on the roads on the edges of the park, they are very wide and have no
    turns (Except when you get the pleasure of going back into the park). Just be
    careful on some of the turns between the park and the outside roads and there
    is one intersection with a large object in the middle that you have to navigate
    around.
    What to watch out for: EVERYTHING. Especially the dirt paths. Just try and take
    the dirt paths slowly and don't go too fast through the winds on the roads in
    the park.
    
    ------------
    Times Square
    ------------
    
    MUCH easier than Central Park. There are lots of wide roads mixed with average
    sized ones. However, there are some narrow roads thrown in here and there
    (Especially near Grand Central Station) that you need to be careful of.
    What to watch out for: Some of the roads around Grand Central Station. They are
    very narrow and make very sharp turns. If you don't know what Grand Central
    Station looks like, it has narrow roads on both sides that connect in the front
    with another narrow road leading up to it. In the back the two roads bend in
    an enclosed area.
    
    -----------
    Wall Street
    -----------
    
    Narrow. That sums up a large portion of this place. There are a few wider roads
    near the waterfront but everything more inland is very narrow. There are also
    a lot of difficult turns on many of the turns thanks to the narrow roads. There
    is also a long, curved tunnel that runs along the edge of the water.
    What to watch out for: Other than the narrow roads and the difficult turns, the
    tunnel. The tunnel is divided in the middle so make sure you don't slam into
    the divider when hitting it. Just like the rest of the area, the tunnel is very
    narrow so be careful since it does curve.

    ===============================================================================
    5. The Race Types
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is a listing all of the different types of races that are in Kudos
    Challenge.
    
    -----------
    Street Race
    -----------
    
    The most common race type in Kudos Challenge, you are up against 5 other cars
    in a normal race. You have to place in the top three in order to finish the
    race, unless you adjust the difficulty while in Kudos Challenge.
    
    ----------
    One On One
    ----------
    
    You are against up one car and if you win, you get that car. You can adjust
    the difficulty to give either you or your opponent a head start.
    
    ----------------
    Hot Lap - Single
    ----------------
    
    A time trial where on at lest one lap, you have to get a lap time better than
    the one set before the race. The amount of time you get for the lap can be
    adjusted before the race. In this mode you always start a distance behind the
    starting line so you can get up some speed before the race starts. The timer
    won't start and you can't get any kudos until you cross the starting line.
    
    -----------------
    Hot Lap - Average
    -----------------
    
    Similar to Hot Lap - Single. Instead of having to beat the lap time on only
    one lap, the average time of every lap has to be under the lap time. The lap
    time can be adjusted before the race. Just like in Hot Lap - Single, you start
    behind the starting line and the race does not start until you cross it.
    
    ------------------
    Overtake Challenge
    ------------------
    
    Your goal is to pass (Or overtake) a set number of the cars driving around the
    track you're on. The number of cars you have to overtake can be adjusted before
    the race.
    
    ---------------
    Style Challenge
    ---------------
    
    Here your goal is to get a certain amount of kudos before finishing the race.
    There are cones and cone gates to help you get kudos and to become obstacles to
    get in your way. Hitting any cones will be the same as hitting a wall, you'll
    lose any kudos that you're about to get. Passing between two green cones will
    give you some kudos and going through two blue cones will give you kudos based
    on your speed as you pass through them. The amount of kudos you need to get can
    be adjusted before the race.
    
    ---------
    Timed Run
    ---------
    
    In this mode you have a set time limit to complete an entire race. You have no
    opponents but there are other cars on the track to get in your way. The amount
    of time you get can be adjusted before the race.
    
    --------------------
    Total Laps Challenge
    --------------------
    
    Just like the name says, your challenge here is to complete a total number of
    laps within the allotted time. The amount of laps you have to complete can be
    adjusted before the race.
    
    -------------------
    Top Speed Challenge
    -------------------
    
    Obviously, your goal here is to reach a certain speed. All you have to do
    is meet that speed and then wait for the time to run out. There are speed gates
    (Blue cones) to help you get kudos in these. The speed you have to reach can be
    adjusted before the race.
    
    -----------------------
    Average Speed Challenge
    -----------------------
    
    Instead of just reaching a certain speed like in the Top Speed Challenge, here
    your speed is recorded whenever you cross a checkpoint and is averaged out. The
    average which you must reach can be adjusted before the race.
    
    ===============================================================================
    6. Quick Race
    ===============================================================================
    
    All of the races in Quick Race are street races. You get a bronze medal for
    coming in 3rd place, a silver medal for coming in 2nd place and a gold medal
    for coming in 1st place. If you get at least a bronze medal on every race in a
    level you unlock the next level, getting all golds will get you a new car. Any
    kudos you get in this mode go towards your total kudos. Something very
    important about this mode which you must know is that the cars you race against
    are determined by the car you use, so your best car isn't always a good choice.
    There were only three cars I used in this mode, the Audi TT (Either version),
    the Skyline GTR for some races I couldn't beat with the Audi and the MINI
    Cooper for races I had trouble with using either of those cars. Yes, the Cooper
    can be much better than you'd think. You might not want to use to Skyline
    because by the you have it unlocked, the car you get from the fourth level
    won't be very useful. The sooner you get through this mode, the more advantage
    you can have in Kudos Challenge.
    
    ********************************************
    6.1 - Level 1: Easy
    ********************************************
    
    I recommend using the Audi TT for all of these races. You shouldn't have too
    much trouble winning as long as you don't screw up. And if you do, don't worry,
    you can always restart the race (And you may need to a few times).
    
    -------------
    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Federal Reserve
    Laps: 2
    Advice: This race takes place on a VERY easy track. Nothing to worry about
    (Just don't screw up the two left turns together right after the start) and
    your opponents aren't a threat. Take it easy and you'll do fine.
    
    ------
    London
    ------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Big Ben
    Laps: 2
    Advice: This track is very easy as well. Make sure you don't take the first
    turn too fast because it's not as wide as it may look at first. The other three
    big turns can be taken a bit faster as they are actually wider. Don't worry
    about your opponents being much of a problem, they aren't very challenging at
    all in the very easy level (As you could have probably guessed).
    
    -----
    Tokyo
    -----
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Asakusa Challenge
    Laps: 2
    Advice: This track is a bit tricky compared to the last two. Once you pass the
    first checkpoint and get off the bridge, you have to make a right into a narrow
    street. This leads to the temple area where you have to make a sharp left onto
    another narrow road. Before the turn there is a little area you can cut through
    but it doesn't save you much time. Once you're on this new road you're going to
    have to make a left onto ANOTHER narrow road, so be careful. After that you're
    back on the bigger roads. Still, the other cars should be easy to beat so as
    long as you don't screw up in that area by the temple you should be fine.
    
    --------
    New York
    --------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Water & Nassau
    Laps: 2
    Advice: After the first turn you will have to navigate a series of turns in
    some tight corridors. They aren't as narrow as the ones on the last track, but
    you still don't have all that much room to breathe. After about six of these
    turns in the alleys you'll make a turn onto a big road. Make sure to slow down
    at the end, because you have to make a sharp turn. As with the last three
    races, you won't have to worry about your opponents if you don't make any bad
    mistakes.
    
    ********************************************
    6.2 - Level 2: Medium
    ********************************************
    
    These get to be a little bit harder, but you still shouldn't have problems. I
    would also recommend the Audio TT for every race in this level.
    
    -------------
    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Russian Hill Challenge
    Laps: 3
    Advice: After the first two turns you'll briefly go onto a street that runs
    diagonal and then you have to make a sharp turn to the left followed by a
    right; so make sure to be prepared for them. After those, you go up a hill and
    have to make a turn on top of the hill, take this a little bit slower you
    would than a normal turn because it's easy to spin out on turns like this. The
    next turn should also be taken somewhat slowly (Slowly for a turn, obviously)
    but the next turn at the very top of the hill is even worse. If you take it too
    fast, you're screwed, so take it slowly. On your way down the hill there are
    three intersections, the turn is on the third one. You'll get some air off of
    the first two so make sure you aren't going too fast before the second
    intersection so you can land and safely make the turn. The other cars will be a
    bit more competitive for this whole level but you still should be able to pull
    ahead of them and stay ahead of them without much trouble. If you screw up on
    one of the turns on a hill you'll probably fall far enough behind them to
    warrant restarting.
    
    ------
    London
    ------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Admiralty Arch
    Laps: 3
    Advice: When you go by the park at the start of the race make sure you don't
    hit the thing to the right, and after the left turn when you leave the area
    with the small park make you don't hit the traffic lights in the middle of the
    road. After you make the next left and onto the road with the first checkpoint,
    stay out of the middle because there are many statues that you can easily hit
    placed right in the middle of the street. At the end of this road there are
    some stairs you have to jump down with a turn right after them. Make sure to
    slow down before jumping off them to make the turn, even though it is wide.
    Hitting the stairs too fast will cause you to hit the barrier on the other side
    of the turn. On this street, make sure you watch out for the building that
    spans the road and has arches that divide the road up into three parts. Again,
    the cars you are facing aren't that much of a problem and you should easily
    pull ahead of them all before you reach the stairs.
    
    -----
    Tokyo
    -----
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Shibuya Challenge II
    Laps: 3
    Advice: The first turn you have to take can be a real problem. I usually
    either hit the inside of it or go too fast and hit the outside. Make sure to
    get the timing of when to turn down so you don't screw up like I do. The next
    couple of turns aren't enough to make you use your brake, but let off on the
    accelerator for them. One you're on the other end of the track, you have to
    make a left into the underpass area. Make sure to avoid the supports dividing
    the road. Take the side on the right because it's easier to get into from the
    last turn and easier to make the next turn when you use it. The other part is
    also a bit narrow. After the checkpoint be sure to avoid the metal divider in
    the middle of the road. The opponents seemed to be closer to me in this race
    than in the last two, but it still isn't all that difficult to beat them.
    
    --------
    New York
    --------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Park Loop Reverse
    Laps: 3
    Advice: The only thing you have to really worry about here is the semi-circle
    you have to go in here for the first turn. You can easily slide through it or
    slow down going into it and accelerate out of it. Your opponents slow down
    significantly so you can easily get a big lead on them here. After the end of
    the next road you have to make a left, then a right, then another left. After
    the first left you should be going slow enough to easily make it through the
    next two turns. Opponents won't bother you much if you can make it through that
    first turn quickly. If you don't, you can still easily pass them on the
    straightaways.
    
    ********************************************
    6.3 - Level 3: Hard
    ********************************************
    
    This is where things start to become difficult. You could still use the Audi TT
    for San Francisco, London, and New York but no matter how hard I tried I wasn't
    able to get better than second in Tokyo with it.
    
    -------------
    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Historic District Challenge
    Laps: 4
    Advice: The track itself isn't much of a challenge, but getting into first
    place can be. It can take about the whole first lap for you to get into first
    place, so don't worry if you're halfway through the lap and still in second.
    Make sure to be careful on the street with the planters with trees in them
    before the seconds checkpoint.
    
    ------
    London
    ------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: St. James's Park
    Laps: 4
    Advice: The first and second turns here are a bit tight, so watch out. After
    the long straightaway make sure you slow down enough to make the turn, it isn't
    a difficult turn but it's easy to brake to late on long straightaways and not
    make the turn after them. After that turn you make a turn onto a road that gets
    narrow near the end and makes a sharp turn onto a street with monuments in the
    middle. It's easy to get in first place in the beginning of the race, but the
    computer won't hesitate to pass you in the later parts of the lap. Make sure
    that once you get into first that you don't let your opponents take it.
    
    -----
    Tokyo
    -----
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Eki-Mae Hairpin
    Laps: 4
    Advice: This one is a real pain. No matter what I did, I wasn't able to come in
    first in anything less than the Skyline, although you may have some success with
    the MINI Cooper. The track itself isn't much of a problem, it's your opponents.
    You do end up in the temple area a few blocks after you get off the second
    bridge and after you leave the temple area and make a right there is a big
    street with a very sharp turn after it.
    
    --------
    New York
    --------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Whitehall to Wall
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Don't worry, this track isn't nearly as bad as it looks. A lot of it
    takes place on bigger roads instead of the alleys that are all too common here.
    Once you get near the park (Between the checkpoints) the turns start to get a
    little bit tighter. After the area with the park you get to face the tunnel for
    the first time. Take the left side of it. Most of the cars will go to the right
    and being on this side makes it much easier to pass them. It also seems to be
    easier to avoid hitting the walls on this side. Upon exiting the tunnel veer to
    the right because you have to go onto a very narrow road to the right of the
    freeway entrance. At the end of this road you have to make a left in these
    narrow corridors, but make sure you don't turn to sharply because the way this
    turn is set up that can send you straight into a wall. The opponents here are
    nothing compared to what you have to deal with in Tokyo of this level. It still
    probably will take you awhile to plant yourself in first place, I didn't get
    into first place until I got in the tunnel.
    
    ********************************************
    6.4 - Level 4: Very Hard
    ********************************************
    
    This level is a real pain. You are going to probably have to restart many time
    until you get the track down and can get through it without making any mistakes
    and without letting the other cars pass you. You can still use the Audi TT for
    some races here (San Francisco and New York) but in London and Tokyo I would
    recommend using the MINI Cooper.
    
    -------------
    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: The Tour
    Laps: 5
    Advice: Getting into first place shouldn't be that hard at the beginning of the
    race, you should be able to do it on the first or second turn. After the first
    checkpoint you have to make a left then a very sharp turn to the right at the
    top of a very small hill. Take this too fast and you could spin out. At the top
    of the big hill you get to take the switchback. Going too fast when you turn
    off of the big hill will cause you to spin out and can easily cost you the
    race. Right after this checkpoint you have to make a turn onto a narrow road
    and then into the 180-degree turn that makes up the switchback. My advice for
    taking that turn is to use your handbrake until you're facing the right way.
    After that and the right turn there are a series of small hills. Make sure you
    slow down before the last one so that you can make the turn.
    
    ------
    London
    ------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Bridge St.
    Laps: 5
    Advice: I had more trouble on this than on any other race in Quick Race mode.
    The MINI Cooper is the car of choice here. On the first big turn you might not
    want to slide, you need every bit of speed that you can get coming out of it.
    Once you've made it through the turn you should be in second or third place.
    Go as fast as you possibly can from here, you probably won't have to slow down
    where the road bends, until you get to the next big turn. Take it slowly, but
    not too slowly, and steer around the thing in the middle. Around now you should
    be able to pass the car in first place. Continue on and slow down if you need
    to on the bends. It might not look like you need to slow down on this next turn
    but you do and if you don't and hit the wall, it'll probably cost you the
    entire race. The next series of turns are very easy to take and shouldn't give
    you any trouble.
    
    -----
    Tokyo
    -----
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Koshu Kaido Nishi
    Laps: 6
    Advice: Also use the MINI Cooper here. There isn't much to worry about on the
    track itself, this one isn't that bad. Just make sure to navigate the series of
    turns before the first checkpoint slow enough to not slam into anything. At the
    end, make sure you don't hit the thing in the middle of the street dividing the
    street.
    
    --------
    New York
    --------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: East to West 40th
    Laps: 4
    Advice: You should probably go back to using the Audi TT for this one. On the
    first turn try to avoid the other cars as much as you can. The next two turns
    are very easy and once you're through them you should be able to get into first
    place. After the first checkpoint you have to make a left then a right placed
    right next to each other. Past those you have to make a couple more turns,
    although they are more spaced out. At the end of the long street you have to
    make a left onto a narrow road, slow down a lot to take it. You also turn off
    of this onto a narrow street but you're back on the bigger streets after this.
    
    ===============================================================================
    7. Arcade Race
    ===============================================================================
    
    All of the races in Arcade race mode are style challenges. The medal you get
    for each race is based on how many kudos you get in the race. The amount of
    kudos you need for each medal varies depending on the race. Getting at least a
    bronze medal in every race on a level will unlock the next level. Getting a
    gold medal in every race on a level will unlock a new car. Before you attempt
    these, you might want to unlock the Exige because it is very useful for getting
    Kudos. I used the Exige for almost all of these races, so keep that in mind.
    Although if you use the Exige, the cars you unlock in this mode won't be all
    that useful.
    If you want to win gold here you will have to do lots of combos. To help you
    continue combos when there are long stretches of road and no cones or turns,
    you will have to force yourself to slide. To do it, either tap the handbrake
    until you slide or weave left and right until you start to slide. Be careful
    when doing this, because you can loose control and hit a wall easily.
    Note: The strategies here start with you starting the race and end at the end
    of the first lap, but since nothing on the track changes you can obviously
    apply this to every lap.
    Note number 2: You don't always have to force slides when I say to in the
    earlier levels. If you do follow my advice to the word you should be able to
    get a very high number of kudos, but you don't need nearly that much to get a
    medal for the race.
    
    ********************************************
    7.1 - Level 1: Easy
    ********************************************
    
    This is just an introduction to what's to come in the later levels. It's not
    very difficult to get golds here if you just combo a little.

    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Pier Run
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1200 Kudos; Silver - 800 Kudos; Bronze - 400 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: I'd have to say this is the easiest track for getting kudos there is.
    You can combo through the whole thing without much effort. Drive through the
    first sets of cones at the beginning, slide around this first corner and then
    head down this street. Slide through this corner, pass the speed gate and
    checkpoint and then slide through the next corner. Reach the corner and slide
    again. Steer through the cone gates here and slide around the next corner. If
    you want to continue your combo all the way down this street you're going to
    have to force yourself to slide. When you get to them, slide around the next
    two corners. Pass through the cone gates on this street and you get back to the
    starting line. Do all of that again and you can get the whole thing done in
    one massive combo.

    London
    ------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Trafalgar Challenge
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 800 Kudos; Silver - 550 Kudos; Bronze - 300 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: There aren't as many cone gates here as there were in the last race, so
    you have to force yourself to slide more to get a big combo. At the start there
    are gates on either side of the thing on the street and a big gap between those
    and the next ones at the turn. There's another big gap past here. The next gate
    is a bit past the turn and then there is yet another gap between this and the
    next one. There are a few sets of gates close to each other but then there is 
    another gap until you go through the building with the arches in the road. 
    You can slide through that turn to help you combo. After that there is another
    area with no gates then a turn onto the stairs. At the top of the stairs there
    is a speed gate to the left of the statue and a normal gate to the right. Go
    through the speed gate on the left. There are two more normal gates on either
    side of the next statue then ANOTHER stretch of nothing. Now there will be a
    few cone gates set up in between a path of normal cones that will force
    you to go left and right. Slow down a little bit so you don't hit the cones.
    After this, there is a big turn for you to slide around and a speed gate right
    before the starting line.

    Tokyo
    -----
    Location: Shibuya
    Track: Meiji Dori Loop II
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 900 Kudos; Silver - 600 Kudos; Bronze - 300 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Right at the start go to the right of the barrier and not to the left.
    Go through the gates and then the speed gate that is at the end. Force a slide
    after that to get you to the checkpoint. Slide across the corner past that and
    then come up to the underpass. You will have to choose which side to go under.
    The right has a speed gate at the end but the one in the middle has a couple of
    normal gates making it easier to combo through. Either way, slide around the
    next corner when you get there and then force a slide to get to the next speed
    gate. Force slide again after that until you get to the series of gates and the
    checkpoint. You can make it between the gates fast enough so don't slide,
    you'll probably hit the cones if you do, anyway. Slide through the two turns
    and then pass three cones gates in front of the starting line.
    
    --------
    New York
    --------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: 6th Ave South
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 800 Kudos; Silver - 550 Kudos; Bronze - 300 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: The space between the cone gate right after the start and the next one
    is too big to connect the kudos from both with a combo, so if you want to do a
    combo you will have to force yourself to slide. This is also the space between
    the second cone gate and the one near the turn. Force a slide if you want to
    continue your combo. After the turn there is also a very large gap, but at the
    end there are a couple of cone gates and a speed gate. This is followed by
    another gap, then a few more cone gates and a checkpoint. You can make it to
    the corner and pull off a slide without forcing a slide. After that there is a
    speed gate on this next street and another gap between that and the corner.
    Here there is a series of cone gates close enough so you won't have to force
    a slide.
    
    ********************************************
    7.2 - Level 2: Normal
    ********************************************
    
    Things will be starting to get harder in this level and you'll have to pull of
    a lot more combos in order to get gold medals.
    
    -------------
    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Victorian Mansion Loop
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1200 Kudos; Silver - 950 Kudos; Bronze - 700 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Start by going through the cone gates on this first street, forcing a
    slide after you pass by the last gate and then sliding through the turn. Go
    through these next gates and then slide around the corner. There are no cones
    at all on this street, so if you want to continue your combo you are going to
    have to force a few slides. Slide around the corner at the end and then slide
    around the next one. Quickly get to the right side of the road and pass
    through the speed gate and pass the checkpoint. You're going to have to force
    some more slides after that. Force a slide to get through the rest of the
    street and after the turn, force another one or two to get around this next
    turn. Pass the cone gates around this turn and when you get out of it, you'll
    probably have to force a slide, but make sure you stay in the middle of the
    street because there is a speed gate and some normal cones atop the hill.
    Force yet another slide here and go to the LEFT of the planters. There is one
    gate here, one in between them and one to the right of them. Pass through these
    gates if you wish. After clearing them go through the cones, take the jump and
    then pass the checkpoint. Slide around the corner and force a slide to make it
    to the speed gate. Force another one to get to the next corner. Force a slide
    down this hill and pass the gate on the next one. Around the corner there is a
    street with three gates across it. Go through them and force another slide on
    the street after the turn. Make the turn and get to the starting line.

    London
    ------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: St. James's Bridge
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 700 Kudos; Silver - 575 Kudos; Bronze - 450 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Start out by going through all the gates in the circle. You can slide
    through them all for even more kudos. Go through the right turn and pass
    through all of the cone gates. Force a slide through the gap and pass through
    the cones and the checkpoint. Before the turn, you'll have to force another
    slide. Slide through the turn and force another slide to get to the next cone
    gate. You should have enough speed to make it across the bridge, through the
    gates and the checkpoint without needing to slide. After you get off of the
    bridge, force a slide to get to the next cones and slide through this turn. Go
    through all of these gates to make it back to the starting line.
    
    -----
    Tokyo
    -----
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Niten Mon-Mae
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 700 Kudos; Silver - 525 Kudos; Bronze - 350 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: You start facing the alley that leads to/from the temple. There are no
    cones in here, so if you want kudos you're going to have to force some slides
    in here. Since this alley is so narrow, I wouldn't say that it's the best thing
    you could do. Once you get out of it, slide through the turn, go through the
    gate and then slide through the next turn as well. Pass the two gates on this
    street and then slide into this alley which has the first checkpoint. Pass the
    speed gate after the checkpoint and then slide around the next two corners. Go
    through the gates here (It doesn't matter if you go left or right for the first
    ones) and then slide around the next turn. You may have to force a slide in
    this tight space to get to the next cone gate and the checkpoint. Speed through
    the next two cone gates and force a slide to get to the next gate. Once in the
    temple area take the first left where some cone gates are located and finish
    the lap.

    New York
    --------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: The Pond Tour
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 700 Kudos; Silver - 600 Kudos; Bronze - 500 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: At the start of this race by go through all of the cone gates in front
    of you. Slide around the first corner and pass the speed gate. Force a slide to
    get to the next cone gates and the first checkpoint. Force another slide to get
    to the speed gate up ahead and force another one after it. You can squeeze
    through the area on the left to pass another speed gate or you can just slide
    by it on the road. Go through the turns up ahead and a few cone gates. Force a
    slide again to make it to the checkpoint and the next cone gates. Force a slide
    yet again before the turn and then slide on through the turn after that. Stick
    to the right side of the road to pass the next gate and then hit the gate
    before the starting line. You may need to force a slide to make it to the
    starting line if you want to continue your combo.
    
    ********************************************
    7.3 - Level 3: Hard
    ********************************************
    
    This level is where you might start having problems. Getting a gold medal in
    San Francisco can be very difficult.
    
    -------------
    San Francisco
    -------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Hotel Circle
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 2400 Kudos; Silver - 2000 Kudos; Bronze - 1600 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Start out by going through the cone gates in front of you. Slide around
    the corner and pass through this cone gate. To make it to the next cone gate,
    you're going to probably have to force a slide. Start sliding for the turn
    before you reach the speed gate, otherwise you might not make it in time to
    continue your combo. Before the soft turn to the right, go up on the curb so
    you can make a small jump to get you some kudos. Slide around the corner and
    then through the cone gate. Pass the checkpoint, slide through this corner and
    force a slide to get up to the next gate. Slide through this turn at the top of
    the hill (Just be careful not to spin out) and then slide through the next cone
    gate. If you want to continue your combo here, you're going to have to risk
    trying to force a slide here without hitting the side. I stopped here, but you
    can still go for it. Slide around the corner at the top and pass through the
    gates. For this next turn, you should slow down and slide by tapping your brake
    and then accelerating and NOT by using the handbrake. It's far too easy to spin
    out if you use your handbrake on this turn. Pass through the speed gate on the
    left, make the jump between the cones and then pass the checkpoint and speed
    gate. Slow down before the last jump so you don't hit the wall and then slide
    through the corner, passing another gate. Force a slide to make it to the sharp
    turn atop the small hill. Slide through it and then slide through the gate on
    the next turn to get back to the starting line.

    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Cabinet War Rooms
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1200 Kudos; Silver - 1050 Kudos; Bronze - 900 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Slide through the first turn and force a slide to get to the first cone
    gates. Go through either one, it doesn't matter which. Slow down before jumping
    the stairs to make the turn and then slide to the right when you land. Pass the
    speed gate and force slide your way to the turn. You can slide through the turn
    and make it to the first checkpoint without have to force an additional slide.
    After the checkpoint, force a short slide to make it to the next two gates.
    After you pass them, force another slide to get to the next gate and then force
    yet another one after that to get to the last gate before the turn. After the
    turn you're going to have to force slide your way all the way to a speed gate
    past the bridge if you want to continue your combo. Force another slide after
    that gate and then slide through the turn. Go through all of the gates and
    force a slide after the speed gate to make it to the next gates. Slide through
    the turns, but stick to the left on the last one, there is a speed gate at the
    end.

    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Minami-Guchi Mae
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1600 Kudos; Silver - 1350 Kudos; Bronze - 1100 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Go through the five cone gates at the start and then force a slide to
    make it to the turn. Go through the cone gates on this next street and slide
    around the corner. Pass the checkpoint and cones gates and then slide around
    this corner. Stick to the right side of the cones to pass a speed gate. In
    order to get to the next gate you'll have to force some more slides. After
    these gates, you're going to probably have to force a slide again to make it to
    the turn. Slide through the S-bend and continue on through the cone gates, past
    the checkpoint. Once you make the next turn you'll have to quickly decide i
    you want to go on the left or right side of the street. The left has a very
    narrow cone gate near the middle but the right has a speed gate at the end.
    Either way, you'll have to force slide your way through if you want your combo
    to continue. Slide through the turn and force a slide to make it back to the
    starting line.

    Track: State & Battery
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1600 Kudos; Silver - 1350 Kudos; Bronze - 1100 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Go through the gates at the beginning and then slide through the turn.
    You'll have to force a few slides to make it to the next cone gate at the turn.
    Past the turn, go through the checkpoint and through the cone gates. After
    going through the cone gate around the corner, force a small slide and turn.
    Force another slide again to get to the next set of cone gates. It doesn't
    matter which side you choose here, they're all normal cone gates. Go around the
    corner and through the speed gate. When you get to the next corner, slide
    through it and then go through the gates. Slide again and pass the checkpoint.
    Go to the left of the cones to reach the speed gate here and then slide through
    the turn. On this street you'll have to force a slide to make it to the next
    turn. Pass the two gates, force a slide and then pass the gates to the right of
    the cones. Slide through the turn and pass the last gate to make it back to the
    starting line.
    
    ********************************************
    7.4 - Level 4: Very Hard
    ********************************************
    
    Obviously, this will be the hardest level in this mode. You are going to have
    to get even bigger combos here to get gold medals here.

    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Fish Alley
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1800 Kudos; Silver - 1600  Kudos; Bronze - 
    1400 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Slide around the corner in front of you as you start and pass through
    all of the gates on this street. Slide through the speed gate in the middle of
    the next corner and slide around the corner at the top of the small hill. Slide
    again, around the next two corners, and pass through the speed gate. Slide
    around the next corner and go to the left of the first set of cones, right of
    the second, left of the third and right of the fourth to get all of the gates.
    When you reach the next corner, slide around it and then pass the speed gate.
    You're probably starting to run low on time now, if you are, don't worry. There
    are no gates at all on the street with the checkpoint, so to continue your
    combo you'll have to force a slide. After the turn, pass a speed gate and then
    there is another gap where you'll have to force a slide to continue your combo.
    Make sure to turn a bit early for the big turn because there are cones on the
    outside of it that are very easy to hit. Force a slide to make it to the next
    two turns. Force a slide again to get to the checkpoint and force another one
    to get from the checkpoint to the next series of cone gates. After the cone
    gates, slide around the corner and pass the two gates before the starting line.

    Track: Old Palace Yard
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1550 Kudos; Silver - 1275 Kudos; Bronze - 1000 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: After the first five gates in front of you when you start there is a
    very long gap that will require many forced slides to get through if you want
    to continue your combo. When you get through it, pass the speed gate, force a
    slide and then slide around the turn and through the cone gate. Pass the
    checkpoint and head through the gates. Force another slide to get to the turn.
    Past the turn, head to the right of the cones and pass through the gates and
    then the checkpoint. Slide around this turn and pass the gates on this street.
    Slide around the next couple of corners and then pass the next set of cone
    gates. Go through the speed gate and then go to the left of the cones to get to
    the cone gate. Force a slide to make it to the next speed gate and the starting
    line, if you want to continue your combo.

    Track: Shibuya 1-chome Mae
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1500 Kudos; Silver - 1250 Kudos; Bronze - 1000 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Start by going through the two gates to the left and then forcing a
    couple of slides to get to the next cone gates. Pass the gates and then slide
    around the corner. Pass these gates and the checkpoint. Slide around the corner
    and force slide your way down the street. Go to the right of the cones on this
    next street and pass the speed gate. Force a slide to get to the turn and force
    another slide to make it to the checkpoint if you have to. Force yet another
    slide after the checkpoint to make it to the turn. After the turn, pass the
    gate and go to the RIGHT of the barrier. There are a few gates here and the
    left has only a speed gate at the end. If you take the left, force a few slides
    to get to that gate. Right after the barrier ends, go to the left of the cones
    to get to the next few gates. Pass through some more gates, slide around the
    corner and force a slide to make it back to the starting line.

    Track: Central Park West
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 2000 Kudos; Silver - 1800 Kudos; Bronze - 1600 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: For the length of the whole street you start on you will have to force
    slide to get through the few cone gates. Slide around the corner at the end,
    pass the speed gate and then start another forced slide. Slide around this
    corner, pass the gate and slide around the corner. Slide again around this
    corner at the end of this short street and pass the gate here. Force a slide
    and then slide around the corner. Pass all of the gates plus the checkpoint
    and then force a slide to make it to the speed gate, if you want to continue
    your combo. Force slide again here, all the way to the turn. Start sliding
    through the turn and then head to the right of the barrier near the edge of
    the circle you have to drive around. Pass all of the gates here and start
    sliding around the rest of the turn. Slide to the right and pass all of the
    cone gates and the checkpoint. Slide around the corner and make the slide last
    long enough to get you to the next cone gates. Force a slide to get to the next
    speed gate and force another slide to get to the next gates and the starting
    line.

    8. Kudos Challenge
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Kudos Challenge is the real heart and soul of this game, you'll be spending
    much more time here than the other modes. When you play a race for the first
    time, you usually shouldn't change the difficulty of it. Leave that until you
    know what you're capable of in that race and adjust it to that to get the
    maximum amount of kudos you can. An exception is street race, you should always
    adjust it so you have to come in first place. Getting in first place isn't very
    hard and you get a lot of kudos (1000) for doing so. As for what cars to use,
    use the cars that you like the best. You don't always have to go for a car you
    just unlocked.
    In levels that have a one on one race, that should be the first race you do of
    that level, so you have that car at your disposal for the entire level.
    
    ********************************************
    8.01 Level 1: Introduction
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 4 (Hot lap - single, style challenge, street race, one on one)
    Medal requirements: Gold - 100 Kudos, Silver - 600 Kudos, Bronze - 200 Kudos
    
    All of these races are very easy, but don't worry if you don't beat them on
    your first try if you still are getting used to playing the game.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Warehouse Row
    Initial target: 33 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: A very simple track to start off Kudos Challenge. The first turn right
    after the starting line is the only one you have to worry about. It's a sharp
    turn and even though the road you're turning onto is very wide, it doesn't make
    it much harder to hit the barrier on the side. The rest of the turns are easy
    to take and easy to slide around to get kudos. Don't worry about the target of
    33 seconds, it's easy to get a time below that.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 2: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: West 45th
    Initial target: 200 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Unless you played through some of Arcade Race, this is going to be your
    first race for kudos. A valuable thing to know for these races is that you will
    probably need to get big combos to get the gold medals. To help you continue
    combos in areas where there are no turns to slide around or cone gates to pass
    through, you'll have to do something which I refer to as forcing a slide. There
    are two ways to do this. Either tap the handbrake until you slide a bit or
    swerve left and right until you start to slide. Be careful when doing these, as
    you can loose control and hit a wall if you screw up. You don't have to listen
    to my advice for style challenges to the word, if you do you should be able to
    get a combo through the whole track. You do not need to do that EVER to get a
    gold. You can stop and let the kudos get added to your score and then start
    another combo later a few times each race and still get a gold.
    Start out the race by going through the gates in front of you. After the third
    one, you can force a slide to get to the turn. Slide around the turn and go
    through all of the gates here and then pass the checkpoint. Slide around the
    turn to find another gate. Pass it and slide around the next turn to find a
    street where you'll have to force a slide or two to get through if you want
    your combo to continue. Slide around the corner at the end and pass through all
    of the gates here. Force slide at the end and slide around the corner. Pass the
    checkpoint here and all the gates on this street to make it to the last corner
    before the starting line.
    
    -------------------
    Race 3: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Tochou Dori Loop
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 2
    Advice: As I said before, adjust the difficulty to make your target first
    place. Start out the race by heading down the first street. Brake a bit early
    for the turn so you can get to the right side of the thing dividing the street.
    The next turn is a right immediately followed by a left. After that there is a
    right followed by a very long street. Make sure you don't forget to brake for
    the right turn after it! There's another big right right before the starting
    line. Getting first place on this race isn't that difficult, this is only the
    first level of Kudos Challenge.
    
    ------------------
    Race 4: One On One
    ------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Duke of York
    Initial target: -2 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Just leave the target at -2 seconds. If you have trouble, you can
    always try again and adjust it. At the start of the race, make sure not to hit
    those arches on the building in the road. After them there is a left turn
    followed up by a right. There's another left at the top of this hill onto a
    long street with another left turn at the end. After that street, be careful as
    there are some monuments/statues in the middle of the street. There are some 
    stairs by the second one that you'll have to jump down. Make sure you aren't
    going very fast when you hit them so you have time to make the turn after you

    8.02 - Level 2: Amateur Season
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 5 (Hot lap - single, overtake challenge, street race x2, one on one)
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1000 Kudos, Silver - 650 Kudos, Bronze - 250 Kudos
    
    Still easy, perhaps even easier since you should be somewhat used to how the
    game plays by now.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Jinnan Loop
    Initial target: 35 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: The first turn after the starting line is right after a hill, so make
    sure you brake a little bit earlier than you normally would for a turn like
    this to compensate for the little bit of extra speed you might have from coming
    down it. After the first checkpoint there is a sharp turn that can be a real
    pain. You should be able to slide around it, though. Right before the starting
    line there is a turn that always caused trouble for me. Just be sure to brake
    enough for it and don't turn too early (I usually do when I don't go too fast
    and end up hitting the barrier on the inside).
    
    --------------------------
    Race 2: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Queen Victoria Memorial
    Initial target: 3 cars
    Time: 1:15.000
    Advice: This track doesn't have any sharp turns and since it's raining, you
    should be able to slide around all of the turns without having to use your
    handbrake. Since this is the first overtake challenge, it should be very easy
    for you to pass all of the cars here.
    
    -------------------
    Race 3: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fisherman's Wharf
    Track: Beach St.
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 2
    Advice: This race takes place on a track that luckily for you, only has
    90-degree turns. After the first turn, go up the hills but slow down enough for
    the turn so that you don't jump and end up hitting the wall. You can spin out
    a little bit on this turn and the next one if you aren't careful. After the
    next one you'll be at the top of the hill. Take this turn very slowly so you
    don't hit the barriers and so you don't spin out. When going down this hill
    make sure to brake before you jump for the last time so that you aren't going
    too fast to make the turn at the bottom.
    
    -------------------
    Race 4: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Central Park
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 3
    Advice: This track is almost too easy for one in Central Park. After the second
    checkpoint you have to turn onto a narrow road, so make sure you aren't going
    very fast. After that you have to make another turn on these narrow roads.
    Then the road turns, slow down just a little to make sure you don't hit
    the outside barrier.
    
    ------------------
    Race 5: One On One
    ------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Wall Street Tour
    Initial target: 0 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: The first turn is onto a street that is kind of narrow and then after
    that the next turn is onto another road that is just as narrow. The next turn
    will take you onto a road that is wider at first but gets narrower at the end.

    8.03 - Level 3: San Francisco
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 6 (Hot lap - single, total laps challenge, overtake challenge, street
    race x2, one on one)
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1200 Kudos, Silver - 750 Kudos, Bronze - 300 Kudos
    
    Things are still pretty easy here, but getting gold and silver medals gets a
    bit harder. Getting all gold and silver medals on this level will unlock Free
    Roam mode for San Francisco.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: The Switchback
    Initial target: 52 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: You're going to end up having to make it through the switchback in this
    track. Go very slow before the third turn, if you don't you could spin out. For
    the switchback, tap your handbrake to spin your car around it.
    
    ----------------------------
    Race 2: Total Laps Challenge
    ----------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Half Block
    Initial target: 7 laps
    Time: 1:30.000
    Advice: All this track is is four short straight roads and four turns. It's
    easy enough to get a bronze medal here, all you have to do is complete the 7
    laps which isn't very hard. Getting a gold or silver here will be much harder.
    Your best bet will be to either use your joker or get a very large kudos combo.
    
    --------------------------
    Race 3: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Octavia North
    Initial target: 4 cars
    Time: 2:00.000
    Advice: It is very easy to get kudos on this track because of the jumps you'll
    make on the hills and the turns. You should have no problem at all passing the
    four cars, just don't take the turns at the top of the hill too fast and spin
    out.
    
    -------------------
    Race 4: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Buchanan St.
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Don't worry about the fog, it shouldn't hamper your driving very much
    since it's still very easy to see where the turns are. After the first turn is
    the street with the planters in the middle, don't let it take you by surprise.
    Remember not to take the turns at the top of hills/going onto hills too quickly
    because you know you can spin out.
    
    -------------------
    Race 5: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Ferry Dock
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 2
    Advice: This track is really easy. The only thing on it that can be a problem
    is the first turn. On that turn you can cut across the sidewalk to the right of
    the first part of the turn and slide through the rest of it.
    
    ------------------
    Race 6: One On One
    ------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Hyde St.
    Initial target: -5 seconds
    Laps: 2
    Advice: By now you should be familiar with what to do on tracks in Fishermans
    Wharf. Don't go too fast on the turns around the second checkpoint on this
    track and slow down before the last jump when going down the hill. You can
    easily make the turn right before the starting line by using your handbrake.

    street race x3)
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1300 Kudos, Silver - 850 Kudos, Bronze - 400 Kudos
    
    Just as easy as the last level, if not easier because of the lack of hills.
    Getting a gold or silver medal in every race on this level will unlock Free
    Roam mode for London.
    
    -----------------
    Race 1: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Downing Street
    Initial target: 2 minutes 35 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: You should get more than enough time to complete this first timed run.
    It will be raining, but you can use that to help you slide around corners.
    Right after the start, make sure you don't hit the statue in the middle of the
    street. Just past the first turn the road gets very narrow. When you turn back
    onto the street with the starting line, make sure to stay out of the middle to
    avoid hitting anything. There will be some other cars driving around the track
    as well, try not to hit them.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 2: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Waterloo Station
    Initial target: 25 seconds
    Laps: 5
    Advice: You should be able to slide around all of the turns on this track very
    easily to get you some kudos. Right after the checkpoint there is a very narrow
    turn that you must take. The next two aren't as narrow, but the one right after
    the turn is also quite narrow. You should be able to slide through all of
    these. The big turn after that is quite easy to make, it's very wide and you
    can also slide right through it.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 3: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Regent St.
    Initial target: 200 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: There's a long gap from the start to the first gate. You'll have to
    force a slide to make it from the starting line to that gate. After the gate,
    slide through the turn and force a slide to make it to the next gates. Go
    through them and force another few slides to get to the next gates. It doesn't
    matter if you go to the left or the right of the monuments, the gates are the
    same. Jump down the stairs (Make sure you can turn afterwards) and go through
    the gates here.
    
    ---------------------------
    Race 4: Top Speed Challenge
    ---------------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Westminster Bridge
    Initial target: 105mph
    Time: 1:30.000
    Advice: Before you play this for real, you should take a lap or two around this
    track with whatever car you're going to use to see how fast it can go. Once you
    do, adjust the target speed to as high as the car can go.
    On the stretch of road right after the starting line you should probably slow
    down before you get to the speed gate so you can make the turn. This turn is
    very wide and very easy to slide around. On the stretch of road after that turn
    you should probably slow down around the checkpoint so that you can make the
    turn. You can go through any of the arches here as there are only two gates
    which both span all three arches on either side. Slide through the next two
    turns and pass the speed gate. Slide around the corner, pass the checkpoint and
    slide around the next corner. Go through the gates and at the end, force a
    slide to make it to the next turn. Slide around these turns and go to the left
    of the cones right after the turn to pass a few gates. You'll have to force a
    slide to make it back to the checkpoint and force another one if you want to
    make it to the first gate.
    
    -------------------
    Race 5: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Charing Cross
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Slide around the first turn and then watch out for the traffic lights
    or whatever in the middle of the road before the next turn. There are a lot of
    gentle turns between the two checkpoints that you probably won't have to brake
    for; but make sure that you do brake for the turn that leads to the second
    checkpoint. On the last turn, make sure that you aren't too close to the inside
    of the turn because if you are you will slam head on into a wall.
    
    -------------------
    Race 6: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Horse Guards
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 4
    Advice: The track itself in this race is easy but the cars you're racing
    against can cause some problems for you on turns. Don't let the other cars get
    in your way when you turn, if they do they can make it much more difficult to
    turn and you'll loose some speed. If you have to, you can be aggressive and
    force them out of your way.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Thames Challenge
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Very long stretches of road and wide turns. Make sure that the car that
    you're using for this race can go faster than all of the other cars. All of the
    turns except for the last ones are easy to slide around. The turns right before
    the starting line might be too far apart for you to slide around with one big
    slide.

    If you haven't been doing what I said about doing the one on ones first in
    chapters that have them, make sure you do the one on one in this one first
    anyway. You get the Skyline from it, a car you will probably be using for quite
    some time. Getting all gold and silver medals on this level will unlock Free
    Roam for Tokyo.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Nishi-Guchi Mae
    Initial target: 44 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: This race takes place in Shinjuku, so you won't have much to worry
    about since most of the roads are wide and there are mostly 90-degree turns.
    There is a 180-degree turn right before the second checkpoint, but you can
    easily slide through it.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 2: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Meiji Dori Loop
    Initial target: 38 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Easy just like the last race. However, it is raining, so remember to
    take things a bit slower (Especially the turn after the second checkpoint).
    Also, watch out for the divider in the road after the starting line.
    
    --------------------------
    Race 3: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Shibuya Eki Loop
    Initial target: 8 cars
    Time: 2:00.00
    Advice: This is the only track in the game with anything that resembles a
    shortcut (Or two shortcuts, actually) in it. Right at the start you can either
    go to the right, which is the shorter way, or go straight and then turn right.
    Always take the first right since it is faster. When you get to the underpass
    area, you should take the inside path or the one to the right side. Right when
    you come out of the underpass area there is another place where you can turn
    right or go straight and then turn right. Go right and not straight for the
    faster route again. You shouldn't have trouble beating this race if you take
    those shorter routes. If you don't, it'll be much harder to pass the eight cars
    and even harder if you raise the target to get a gold.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 4: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Houzou Mon'Mae
    Initial target: 400 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Go through the gates right after the starting line and force a slide to
    get to the corner. Slide around the corner but be warned, there are cones in
    the middle of the next street so don't hit them while you are turning. Go
    through the gates here and then slide around the turn at the end. Go through
    the gates here plus the checkpoint and then slide around the turn. Pass all of
    the gates here and start your slide for the next turn a bit early so you can
    continue your combo and so you can get on the right side of the cones on the
    next street. If you made it to the right side, pass through the gates and
    if not, force a slide if you want. Now you're in the alley leading up to the
    temple. I wouldn't risk forcing slides in here but you can. Halfway through,
    there is a speed gate and a checkpoint. One you get out of the alley, go to the
    right and pass through the five gates here. If you don't go right, there are
    only two gates. Slide around the turn, pass the speed gate and force a slide to
    make it back to the starting line.
    
    -------------------
    Race 5: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Higashi Dori Loop
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Another not-so-difficult race in Shinjuku, although this particular
    track has a few more nasty turns than most here. First of all, after the first
    turn you go onto the street which is divided up by the plants. Choose a side to
    take before you turn (Left is best) and slow down at the right time to get to
    that side. After that turn you have to go through a small S-bend. It isn't the
    worst of S-Bends, but slow down a little bit. Before the end you have to make a
    very sharp turn. As you should know by know, turns like these are easier t
     make when you use your handbrake to get around them.
    
    -------------------
    Race 6: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Sumida-Gawa Loop
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 3
    Advice: After the first checkpoint you will have to go into an alley and then
    from there you turn into another alley. That's about the only thing the lest
    bit difficult with this race. Also, be careful of the turn when you come out of
    the tunnel with the second checkpoint.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Koen-Dori Mae
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 3 laps
    Advice: This track also isn't that bad. There are just a few turns that are
    shortly followed up by another turn. After the first checkpoint is the turn
    which I've told you to watch out for since it likes to trick you into turning
    too early or too late almost every time you take it. When you turn onto the
    street with the starting line stay near one of the sides, because this is the
    street with the divider in the middle of it.
    
    ------------------
    Race 8: One On One
    ------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Taito-Ku Challenge
    Initial target: -2 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Hopefully you're doing this race first like I said to do all one on
    ones first. You'll especially want to do this first since the Skyline is a car
    that you will be using for quite some time. After you pass the first checkpoint
    and make the turn, you'll be on a street with a turn into an alley at the end.
    From that alley you'll have to make a left into another alley. After the second
    checkpoint, you'll turn and then turn again into the alley leading up to the
    temple. You have to make a turn before you reach the temple onto the alley
    where you started the race.

    Medal requirements: Gold - 1300 Kudos, Silver - 950 Kudos, Bronze - 600 Kudos
    
    This is where things start to get a little bit tougher. Getting all gold and
    silver medals on this level will unlock Free Roam mode for New York.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Transverse Track
    Initial target: 1 minute 25 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Right after the starting line you have to go through the loop. Just
    slide on through it like with other turns like it (The ones in Westminster).
    Once you get off of it you're on a road in the park. This road ends with a
    sharp right onto a somewhat-narrow road. After the first checkpoint you have to
    make a left, followed by a right and then another left. Make sure you slow down
    enough on the road with the second checkpoint since you will be going very fast
    on it.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 2: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Grand Central
    Initial target: 53 seconds
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1300 Kudos, Silver - 950 Kudos, Bronze - 600 Kudos
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This track takes you around Grand Central Station, which isn't good.
    Most of the roads on this track are very narrow and it's raining. After the
    second turn you have to make a turn into a very confined area and make some
    turns in it. After the next checkpoint you have to go back into another part
    of that confined area and make more turns in it.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 3: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Nassau Street
    Initial target: 1 minute 15 seconds
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1300 Kudos, Silver - 950 Kudos, Bronze - 600 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Nothing like a race through the alleys of Wall Street. Except maybe
    something worse, a race through the trails of Central Park. If you couldn't
    tell from that, the race isn't going to be fun and takes place in a bunch of
    alleys. The first turn right after the starting line is onto an alley. After
    that, you do go onto a road that is considerably wider and after that you get
    to go on a medium-sized road. It does get very narrow towards the end, however.
    After that road you make a right and then a left onto a very wide street. Once
    you turn off of it and onto this other medium-sized road alley, you have to go
    onto an alley again. The turn from this alley to the alley with the checkpoint
    has to be one of the worst turns in the entire game. It's so narrow that it is
    almost impossible to make it without hitting the wall. After this you go onto
    a lot of roads that are more medium-sized and one very wide one. The medium
    ones get narrower in parts so watch out. The road that leads up to the starting
    line is very narrow, as well.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 4: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Times Square
    Initial target: 500 Kudos
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1300 Kudos, Silver - 950 Kudos, Bronze - 600 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: To get from each of the cone gates in front of the starting line
    without causing a combo to end you're going to have to force some slide unless
    you have a _very_ fast car. At the end of this street, slide around the two
    corners. Pass the gates and the checkpoint, after they end you'll have to force
    a slide to get to the turn. Slide through the turn and pass the gates on the
    left. Slide again, around the next corner and pass the speed gate. Slide around
    this corner at the end and pass the checkpoint. Now slide around this next
    corner and slide yet again around the corner after that. There is another
    corner for you to slide around here, slide around it and then pass through the
    gates. You may have to force a slide to make it to the starting line if you
    want to continue your combo.
    
    -----------------
    Race 5: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Water Street
    Initial target: 4 minutes
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Another timed run, and like the last one in London it is also raining
    here. It actually rains in all of the timed runs. After the first turn you
    have to turn onto one of those medium-sized roads from the third race and then
    into a narrow alley. At the end of this alley you have to turn onto another
    alley and then onto a bigger street with the first checkpoint. The next couple
    of streets are smaller but not that small. The street with the second checkpoint
    is very narrow and then at the end you have to make a very sharp turn. You
    don't have much room to make the turn, so go into it very slowly and slide
    through it.
    
    --------------------------
    Race 6: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Columbus Circle
    Initial target: 8 cars
    Time: 2:30.000
    Advice: If you couldn't tell already, overtake challenge don't take place on
    the most complex tracks. Unfortunately for you, there is fog in this race.
    Shortly after the starting line you'll have to go around the loop (You can
    slide, as usual) and make a left into a path that is a bit narrow. The other
    turns aren't as bad, if you can call those bad. Make sure you get the layout of
    the track down because the fog can really hamper your driving ability on this
    one and cause you to slam into a wall.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Avenue of the Americas
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 3
    Advice: This track may look very difficult, but it really isn't. Every turn is
    a 90-degree turn and the only narrow road is the short one after the third
    turn. The rest of the roads are nice and wide. You should have a very easy time
    coming in first.
    
    -------------------
    Race 8: Street Race

    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Broadway
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 3
    Advice: More fun in Wall Street. After the first turn you get to go on a narrow
    street but quickly make a right onto a medium-sized one. After that you go
    onto another medium-sized one (Unless you have problems with driving on the
    sidewalk, then it's narrow) and then onto a bigger street. Turn and then go
    along another medium-sized street and back into another alley after that. There
    are a few more medium-sized streets here and then you get to go back on the
    bigger roads all the way to the starting line.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Playground Loop
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Right after the start you have to go around the loop (Which you
    hopefully know how to deal with by now) and then onto a very long and wide
    street. After the checkpoint you have to make a turn onto a much smaller street
    and then make a very sharp turn onto another street that is about the same
    size. Once you get off of that, you have to make a few turns and then you are
    on the trails for the first time. The trail you are on winds quite a bit and is
    very narrow. It's also very easy to spin out on it right before you get back
    onto the road. At the end of this road you have to make a sharp turn to get
    back onto the road with the starting line.

    8.07 - Level 7: Professional Season
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 10 (Hot lap - single, hot lap - average, timed run, overtake challenge,
    average speed challenge, total laps challenge, street race x3, one on one)
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1400 Kudos, Silver - 1100 Kudos, Bronze - 800 Kudos
    
    Now that you've completed each city's level, you should be somewhat familiar
    with the basic layout of each neighborhood and what to expect in each one. You
    should still be able to beat these races without much trouble; the real trouble
    starts on the next level.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Central Park Paths
    Initial target: 1 minute 25 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: A bit past the starting line you will have to make two left turns and
    then a right turn, all located right next to each other. A little ways before
    you get to the first checkpoint, you will have to go onto the dirt paths. After
    the checkpoint you cross a street and go up a hill. Be careful when going up
    that hill, you can easily spin out. After the hill, you have to follow this
    very narrow path that winds quite a bit. You will then have to cross another
    street and follow another path. This one doesn't wind quite as much at first,
    but there are a couple of turns by the checkpoint. Take them slowly so you
    don't lose control. After that, the path starts to wind quite a bit until you
    get off of it and are back onto the paved roads. Right after you get back onto
    the paved roads you will be at the loop, slide around it and continue on. Past
    the loop there is a right turn, you will now be on a road with a sharp right a
     the end of it. After that there is a left then the road to the starting line.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 2: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Hanover Square
    Initial target: 1 minute 20 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: After the first two turns you will find yourself on a very big road.
    Once it ends, you'll find yourself going along a bunch of different alleys,
    three to be exact. After those, you will go onto a medium-sized road that gets
    narrower at the end and then a wider road with a checkpoint. After this, all of
    the roads up until the next checkpoint will be narrow alleys, except for one
    that does get wider. After that, you will be mostly on bigger roads up until
    you get back to the starting line.
    
    -----------------
    Race 3: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Azuma-Bashi
    Initial target: 3 minutes 30 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Just like the other timed ruins it's raining here. The first turn you
    have to make will be into the alley leading to the temple. Instead of going all
    the way up to the temple you make a right into another alley before reaching
    it. All of the roads after that are much wider. After the second checkpoint
    slow down so that you can make that turns that takes you into the tunnel.
    
    --------------------------
    Race 4: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Museum Row
    Initial target: 8 cars
    Time: 3:00.000
    Advice: This is another simple track to do an overtake challenge on. The only
    advice for me to give is restart if you screw up. When you finish, you probably
    won't be that far in front of the 8th car, so if you make a major mistake you
    won't be able to catch up to it.
    
    -------------------------------
    Race 5: Average Speed Challenge
    -------------------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Houses of Parliament
    Initial target: 40mph
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Your speed is only recorded when you pass a checkpoint in this type of
    race, unlike top speed challenges where it's the speed you get anywhere on the
    track. On this track all of the checkpoints are placed right after turns. For
    the first checkpoint and the starting line, you will have to slide around the
    turns with as much speed as you can and accelerate into the checkpoints. The
    second checkpoint isn't as bad, since it isn't after a sharp turn. It still is
    right after a turn, take the turn at an angle so you don't have to lose too
    much speed.
    
    ----------------------------
    Race 6: Total Laps Challenge
    ----------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Embarcadero East III
    Initial target: 8 laps
    Time: 3:00.000
    Advice: Not very hard. Just get conformable with sliding around the third and
    fourth turns and beating this race should be a breeze.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Old Admirality
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Fog. This is bad when you start the race on the street with the
    monuments in the middle of it. Avoid the one that isn't very far in front of
    you when you start. Once the dirt path that you take through the park ends, you
    have to make a very sharp turn onto the road. Once you get off of this very
    long road, you will have to make a left turn into the dirt area that gets
    narrow enough to only fit one car through at a time. Once you turn back onto
    the street with the starting line, avoid the statue in the middle of the
    street.
    
    -------------------
    Race 8: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Kuyakusho Mae
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Oddly similar to a track you raced on during the Tokyo level, isn't it?
    Try to avoid the other cars at the first turn as much as you can. They like to
    cause you to spin out. If that happens, just restart, recovering from a spin 
    out can be nearly impossible if they hit you right. Other than that, all you
    need to watch out for is the barrier in the road between the two checkpoints
    and that one turn atop the hill after the second checkpoint.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Fifth Avenue
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Another race in Central Park. There's nothing you need to worry about
    before the first checkpoint. In the next two places where the road you're on
    turns, don't think you can get through the turns without having to brake, you
    won't make it through them unless you do. When it turns for the third time,
    you're going to have to brake as well. For the turn after the checkpoint, a
    slide should get you through it just fine. On this road, you might have to slow
    down a bit where it makes a slight right turn. Slide through the two turns at
    the end of it and finish up this race.
    
    -------------------
    Race 10: One On One
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Lafayette Park
    Initial target: -5 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Winning here can be quite the challenge. What I recommend here is to do
    one lap of practice and see how many kudos you are able to get. Multiply that
    by four for a simple estimate of how many kudos you can get in the race itself.
    Then, adjust the difficulty so that the kudos you get from the target plus the
    kudos you will get in the races equals at least 800 (What you need to get a
    bronze medal). The track this race takes place isn't that difficult. Take it
    like you would any track in the Pacific Heights, just watch out on the street
    with the planets.
    
    ********************************************
    8.08 - Level 8: World Tour
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 12 (Timed run x4, style challenge x4, street race x4)
    Medal requirements: Gold - 1700 Kudos, Silver - 1300 Kudos, Bronze - 900 Kudos
    
    This is one of the hardest levels in Kudos Challenge. Forget about setting your
    target in street races to first place every time, in some races you will want
    to set it to second. In streets races, the car in first place will be very
    fast, but it is still easy to get in second. You should also begin to add about
    5 seconds to your time for timed runs, to make it a bit more reasonable. You
    won't always need it, but often you will be cutting it a little bit too close
    if you don't add it.
    You might want to start practicing using manual transmission if you haven't
    already, for the extra speed. Starting in this level you should avoid the other
    cars in street race at all costs. If you're in front of one and it wants to
    pass, it won't hesitate to bump you and send you spinning. That can very well
    cost you the whole race, so get good at not letting that happen.
    
    -----------------
    Race 1: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Financial District
    Initial target: 3 minutes 10 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: A timed run, this means rain. Since this race takes place in the
    Financial District, the track shouldn't be very difficult for you. There is a
    sharp turn before the second turn which you will not have seen before, though.
    Remember what I said about adding time to the target time? This is a good race 
    to start doing that. When I beat this race I had 1 second left on the clock.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 2: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: The Straightaway
    Initial target: 740 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Go through the first gate past the starting line and force a slide to
    get to the next gate. Go through the rest of the gates on this street and then
    slide around the corner. Go through the gates here and slide around the corner
    onto another street with gates for you to pass through. Go through them, slide
    around the corner at the end of the street, but make sure you end up to the
    left of the cones here to pass this gate. Force a slide to the right side of
    the street to pass this next gate. Go in between the two planters to pass a
    speed gate and then slide around the corner. Navigate this path between the
    cones slowly, so you don't hit the cones. You'll have to force very small
    slides if you want to keep your combo going between the gates. Slide around the
    corner and force slide for this first block, but pass the gates to the right of
    the cones in the intersection. Slide around the corner and pass through these
    two gates. Slide again, around the next corner, pass the single gate and slide
    around this turn. Go through all of the gates to get back to the starting line.
    
    -------------------
    Race 3: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Taylor St.
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This is probably the easiest race in this level. You should be able to
    come in first, but it won't be all that easy. By now you should know to take
    the turn at the top of the big hill slowly to avoid spinning out and know how
    to slide around the switchback. Try to stay away from the other cars as much as
    you can, like I said, they have the ability to make you spin if they hit you
    hard enough.
    
    -----------------
    Race 4: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Leicester Square
    Initial target: 2 minutes 40 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: This timed run I found to be a bit easier than the last one. You 
    probably won't have to add a few seconds to the clock. That's because this
    track isn't all that hard. No big turns to worry about or very narrow roads you
    have to go along. There is that damned traffic light of whatever in the middle
    of the road after the first checkpoint, though. The last turn is the only turn 
    hat could be considered difficult, it's a but sharper than usual, but nothing
    much since you have a lot of room to turn.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 5: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Thames Challenge II
    Initial target: 750 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Go through the cone gates a bit of a ways past the starting line. After
    the fourth one, force a slide to get to the next ones. Past the two speed
    gates, force a slide to get to the turn and the gates around the turn. You
    might not want to slide around this turn, because of the gates. Go through the
    gates on the bridge and then slide around the next corner. Force a slide to
    make it to the next few gates. After the third speed gate, force a slide to get
    to the next cone gate. Force a slide from there through the next gate to the
    corner. Slide through the turns here and then pass the speed gate and
    checkpoint. Force another slide after the fourth turn to get to the speed gate.
    From there, slide all the way around this big turn. After you make the right
    turn, you will have to force slide all the way along this bridge and
    straigtaway if you want to keep your combo going. Yes, all the way along it.
    There are no gates at all on it. Slide around the turns at the end and then
    force a slide after the fourth. Slide around the corner at the end of this
    street to get to the starting line. To make it to the first cone gates you'll
    have to force another slide.
    
    -------------------
    Race 6: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Duck Island
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This is probably going to be the first race where you should set the
    target to second place the first time you take a go at it. In these races, the
    first place car and the second place car (Not counting you, wherever you may
    be) are very far apart. You should be able to at the very least, come in second
    without much trouble. You can come back later with a faster car to win to get
    some revenge. Or a gold medal, whichever one you prefer. Remember, a simple
    bump from one of the other cars can send your car spinning out of control,
    costing you the race. The very first turn on this track is one of the easiest
    places to get into first or second place. Your opponents will slow down more
    than they need to, allowing you to pass them. Since this is the first turn on
    the track, that gives them the rest of it to catch up to you. Right after the
    turn onto the street with the first checkpoint there is a narrow passage you 
    have to squeeze through. Going through this when you're too close to another
    car can be very dangerous, as the other car could send you spinning. At the end
    of this street there is a statue in the middle at the top of some stairs you
    have to jump down. Your opponents will usually try and pass you on the
    straightaways. You can try and block them but if you do that and they bump
    you...
    
    -----------------
    Race 7: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: 1-Chome
    Initial target: 3 minutes 20 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Add five seconds to the target for the first time you play this race.
    You'll need it unless you run perfect laps. Luckily for you, this race is in
    Shinjuku. By now, you hopefully know that that means wide open roads and mostly
    turns which are easy to make. The area around the starting line is a bit more
    narrow, but you don't go through any of the bad turns on this particular track.
    Near the end, you go on the street that's divided up in the middle, but one
    side of it is closed off.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 8: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Beer-Biru Mae
    Initial target: 750 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Go through the first two gates after the starting line and then slide
    around the corner. Force a slide through the first half of the tunnel to make
    it to the next cone gates. After the turn, go through the gate and force a
    slide to get to the speed gate. Force slide your way to the end of this street
    and then slide around the corner. Go through the gates, plus the checkpoint on
    this bridge and then slide around the corner at the end. Force slide your way
    all the way down this street. Slide around the turn, pass the speed gate and
    then force slide all the way down this street. Slide around the corner and
    force slide your way to the gates on this street. It doesn't matter which gates
    you go through, they're all the same. Slide around the corner and force slide
    your way down this alley, if you dare. You really don't have to, but you can.
    Pass the gate at the end and then slide around the corner at the end of the
    alley. Pass the gate here and force slide your way from gate to gate until you
    get to the turn. Slide around it and pass the gates to get back to the starting
    line.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Jinnan Hairpin
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 6
    Advice: Again, you should probably set the target to second place for this
    race. Right off the bat you're going to have to make a left turn to the
    underpass area. Take the left path or the inside one, because taking one of
    them make sit easier to make the left turn right after you get out of it.
    Before the first checkpoint you will have to go along the block that has the
    divider in the middle of the street, watch out for that.
    
    ------------------
    Race 10: Timed Run
    ------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Maiden Lane
    Initial target: 3 minutes 40 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Again, add five seconds to the target before your first attempt at the
    race. The track itself isn't very bad, there is only one alley that you have to
    go through, which is located right after the first checkpoint. The rest of the
    roads are mainly your averaged sized road and a couple of those medium-sized
    ones. If this track isn't very difficult, why should you give yourself five
    more seconds? Because even though it isn't very hard, you still will probably
    have trouble getting through it in that amount of time.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 11: Style Challenge
    ------------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Lexington Ave South
    Initial target: 750 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Go to the left of the first set of cones after the starting line and
    then the right of the second set of cones to pass the first two gates. Pass the
    gate on the left, slide around the corner and go to the right of the cones on
    this street. Pass the speed gate at the end and then force a slide to get to
    the gates up ahead. Avoid the cones scattered about the street and pass the
    gates all the way up until the turn. Slide around this turn and pass the
    checkpoint and speed gate. Slide around the corner here and pass all of the
    gates on this street. Slide around this corner, pass the gate and force a slide
    to get to the next corner. Slide around it, pass the two gates and force a
    slide to get to the next corner, which you should slide around. Pass the two
    gates and force a slide to the next turn. Slide through it, pass the gate to
    the right of the cones and slide around the next corner. Pass all of these
    gates and the ckeckpoint. Force a slide to get to the next two turns. After
    the turns, you're going to have to force slide all the way until the next turn
    if you wish to continue your combo. Slide around the corner at the end, pass
    the gate and force slide your way to the end. Go through the gate at this
    corner and go through all of these gates as fast as you can to get back to the
    starting line.
    
    --------------------
    Race 12: Street Race
    --------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Park Loop II
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 4
    Advice: I'd be lying if I didn't say this was one of the hardest races in
    Central Park. Again, set the target to second place, since coming in first will
    be hard enough just because of the track itself, and then you have to worry
    about how aggressive the other cars like to be in this level. After the third
    turn, you get to go on the paths. As you should know from before, they wind
    quite a bit and are very narrow. This path is no exception. You have to follow
    it all the way to the first checkpoint and then back onto the roads after the
    checkpoint. At the end of this road, you have to make a couple of sharp turns
    and go onto another path. But don't worry about this path, it only goes to the
    next road right behind it. Slow down where this road bends to the right. Near
    the end of the lap is the loop, by now you should be able to take it easily.

    8.09 - Level 9: Challenge Tour
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 10 (Hot lap - single, hot lap - average, total laps challenge, average
    speed challenge, top speed challenge, timed run, style challenge, overtake
    challenge, street race, one on one)
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 1500 Kudos; Silver - 1200 Kudos; Bronze - 900 Kudos
    
    This level is easier than the last one, and half of the races in this levels
    are on some very simple tracks. (Simple as in that they are made up of a few
    turns and some straightaways only)
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: State & Broadway
    Initial target: 1 minute 10 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: There aren't that many alleys that you have to go through on this track
    compared to many others in Wall Street. You have to go through a couple of them
    between the two checkpoints and then the rest of the roads there are
    medium-sized. From the second checkpoint to the starting line back to the first
    checkpoint all of the roads are wider. The only turn that's the least bit sharp
    is the one right before the second checkpoint, but it isn't much sharper than
    any other turn.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 2: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: St. Martin's
    Initial target: 50 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: You may want to up your target time a little bit to give yourself some
    room to breathe. But if you don't, you may be cutting it a bit close. It's
    raining here, but other than that there isn't all that much that you need to
    look out for. Just the things in the middle of the street which you should be
    used to by now. That traffic light thing is in the middle of the road right
    before the second turn and you have to go through the building with the arches
    right after the turn past the second checkpoint. The turn after the arches
    takes you up the stairs onto the road with the statues in the middle of it.
    
    ----------------------------
    Race 3: Total Laps Challenge
    ----------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Hachi-Kou Mae
    Initial target: 10 laps
    Time: 3:00.000
    Advice: Another total laps challenge on a very short and simple track. All this
    track consists of, other than the straightaways, is a bend after the starting
    line and two sets of two left turns right next to each other. Slow down just a
    little for the bend and slide around the turns at either end of the track and
    you'll have no problem.
    
    -------------------------------
    Race 4: Average Speed Challenge
    -------------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: The Box
    Initial target: 65mph
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This track is a big square. There are lots of big jumps for you to get
    plenty of kudos here. The checkpoints and the starting line are in places where
    you should have a decent amount of speed. Even the second checkpoint, which is 
    right after a turn. The turns on this track are so wide that you can go through
    them without slowing down all that much. At the end of the street with the
    second checkpoint you will have to turn onto the street with the planters in
    it.
    
    ---------------------------
    Race 5: Top Speed Challenge
    ---------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: The Embarcadero
    Initial target: 105mph
    Time: 1:30.000
    Advice: Another simple track, just like the last two. Just like in the last two
    speed challenges all the way back in level 5, you should see how fast your car
    can go on this track, and then quit the race and adjust the target speed to
    match what your car can do. There are speed gates right before both turns to
    get you some extra kudos. Since this track is only two starightaways and two
    big turns, the fog here won't be a problem.
    
    -----------------
    Race 6: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: West 40s
    Initial target: 4 minutes 10 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Don't adjust the target time for this race, you should have plenty of
    extra time. By plenty I mean a whole 10 or so seconds. As you could have
    guessed, it's raining. This track is made up of of many straightaways on wide 
    roads with only 90-degree turns. There is one narrow road right after the
    second checkpoint, but that's it.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 7: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Buckingham Gate
    Initial target: 750 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: There aren't very many gates on this track, so expect to force lots of
    slides. After the first four gates force a slide to get to the next one. You
    should be able to barely make it from that one to the next two. Force a slide
    to make it to the speed gate up ahead. Slide around all of the turns here and
    pass the checkpoint. The turns are close enough together for you to not have to
    force a slide. Go through the gate and slide around the turns. Force slide your
    way down this street, through the few gates here. At the end, slide your way
    into the park and through the speed gate. There is one more gate between here
    and the next checkpoint, so if you want to continue your combo you'll be doing
    lots of forced sliding. Once you pass the checkpoint, pass the two gates and
    slide around the corner. Now you get to force slide even more. The next gate is
    at the end of the two lines of cones on either side of one of the monuments.
    Force slide your way to the next turn and then go to the right of the cones to
    pass the next three gates. Force slide your way to the turn, slide around it
    and then pass the last gate before the starting line. You're going to have to
    force slide again to get from the starting line to the first gates.
    
    --------------------------
    Race 8: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Sensoji
    Initial target: 14 cars
    Time: 3:30.000
    Advice: Don't let the 14 car target scare you. You have enough time to pass
    them all. It's raining during this race and three of the four streets on this
    track are the narrow streets around the temple. As you go along in the race the
    cars will start to bunch up and will be close together on the track instead of
    staying spread out like how they were when you started.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Tochou Dori Loop II
    Initial target: 3rd
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This street race isn't as hard as the past few. You could set the
    target for first place if you want to, or play it safe by staying with second.
    This is another easy race through Shinjuku. Wide roads and easy turns. You
    start on the road that's divided in the middle, but the right side is closed
    off. Right before the first checkpoint is the only turn on this track that is
    the least bit difficult, because you don't have as much room to turn as on the
    other turns.
    
    -------------------
    Race 10: One On One
    -------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Milbank
    Initial target: -5 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Another track with a simplistic design. A couple of straightaways, two
    big turns and two smaller turns. Just slide around the bigger turns and go
    around the smaller turns like any turn. The 5 second default headstart should
    be enough to keep you ahead for the entire race.
    
    ********************************************
    8.10 - Level 10: Endurance Season
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 8 (Hot lap - single x4, street race x4)
    NOTE: There are different medal requirements for the hot lap races and street
    races in this level
    Medal Requirements (Hot lap): Gold - 1600 Kudos; Silver - 1300 Kudos;
    Bronze - 1000 Kudos
    Medal Requirements (Street race): Gold - 8000 Kudos; Silver - 5000 Kudos;
    Bronze - 2000 Kudos
    
    They don't call this the endurance season for nothing. All four street races
    (One on each city) in this level are 15 laps long. Although, they are much
    easier than the street races in the last two levels, you can set the target to
    first place for all of these without having to worry about a car passing you
    right before the race ends, or not being able to get in first in the first
    place. You should reach 150,000 kudos some time around this level and unlock
    the Carrera GT. That car will become very useful and once you have it, you
    should start using it for most races.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: The Waterfront
    Initial target: 1 minute
    Laps: 3
    Advice: A simplistic track, just like many of the ones in the last level. All
    of the turns are easy and all of the roads are nice and straight, but one. The
    sharp turn is the one after the first checkpoint, by now you should know how
    to slide around it easily because of all the space around it. The road that
    isn't straight is the one after the sharp turn next to a parking lot and near
    the water. You've been through it many times by now and know that isn't any
    real threat.
    
    -------------------
    Race 2: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Cable Car
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 15
    Advice: Your first 15 lap street race. This race takes place on an easy, albeit
    long, track through the Financial District. There are no bad turns or narrow
    roads for you to worry about screwing up on, causing you to lose. It's easy to
    get into first and get very far ahead of the other cars by the end of the race,
    when I finished this race I was about 15 seconds ahead of the second place car.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 3: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Westminster Challenge
    Initial target: 1 minute 10 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: It's foggy and raining here, but that won't prevent you from seeing
    that this track is easy as well. Slide around the loop after the first
    straightway and slide through all of the turns after the first checkpoint.
    Around the second checkpoint there are a few more turns that are usual for this
    area, but you can still slide through them all with ease, like with all of the
    other turns on this track.
    
    -------------------
    Race 4: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: The Mall East
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 15
    Advice: This street race is easy, just like the last one. Although, on this one
    you have to actually worry about some things on the track like the statue in
    front of the starting line and the place where the road gets very narrow for a
    moment right after the first turn. There's also the statue at the end of that
    road with the stairs by it. Right before the turn onto the street with the
    starting line, the road gets narrow briefly again and there is a statue right
    after the turn.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 5: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Koen Minami
    Initial target: 1 minute 15 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Fog. And a few alleys. Right after the start you have to go up the
    alley leading to the temple, all the way to the temple. After you leave the
    temple and pass the checkpoint, you turn right onto a normally sized road. From
    that road you go left through the only alleys on this track.
    
    -------------------
    Race 6: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Tochou Kita-Dori Higashi
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 15
    Advice: Shinjuku again... You should know what that means, an easy track.
    Except that this track houses the one turn that can be considered difficult in
    all of Shinjuku. It's located after the first easy right and past the busses on
    the left. It's a quick left then right, but you can cut through it. Your
    opponents in this race will be just as easy as they were in the last two street
    races.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 7: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Bryant Park
    Initial target: 1 minute 48 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Just by looking at it you can tell that this track won't be as easy as
    many of the last ones. But, just because it isn't as easy as the last ones
    doesn't make it hard. After the third turn you have to go up along one of the
    narrow roads along side Grand Central Station and make the turns along it. The
    road that the second checkpoint is on is that narrow road that goes under a
    building.
    
    -------------------
    Race 8: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: FDR Drive Loop
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 15
    Advice: This race is much harder than the past three street races. Use the
    Carrera GT for it. If you don't have the Carrera GT, now is the time to unlock
    it. The track is simple in design with only three real turns on it. The first
    one can be quite a problem. Learn when you should start to brake for it, using
    the buildings on the left to help since there are no markings on the street you
    can use. It's better to slow down a bit too early than to end up going to fast
    and hitting the wall, so slow down earlier than you think you have to until you
    get the hang of the turn. Before the third turn there is a divider in the
    middle of the road. Obviously, you should avoid it. It's also easy to go too
    fast for the third turn, although not as easy as the first one. Going too fast
    on this turn and hitting the wall can give the other cars a chance to pass you
    up and get far ahead of you. You might want to try practicing the turns a
    couple of times until you got the timing down for them.
    
    ********************************************
    8.11 - Level 11: World Class Season
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 10 (Hot lap - single, timed run, top speed challenge, total laps
    challenge, overtake challenge, style challenge, street race x3, one on one)
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 2000 Kudos; Silver - 1500 Kudos; Bronze - 1000 Kudos
    
    You should defiantly have the Carrera GT by now. If you don't, work on getting
    the kudos to unlock it. With it this whole season will be no problem.
    
    ------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Single
    ------------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: The Embankment Challenge
    Initial target: 1 minute 30 seconds
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Yet another simple track. You can easily slide through the series of
    turns at each end of the track like you've done quite a few times by now and
    slide through the turns going on/off the bridge when you pass to the left of
    the starting line. The turns before and after the starting line are a bit
    tight, but can still be slid through.
    
    -----------------
    Race 2: Timed Run
    -----------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: The Treasury
    Initial target: 4 minutes 50 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: You get way more than enough time for this race. About thirty seconds
    more than you should need, if you want more kudos drop the target time by 20 or
    25 seconds. As usual, it's raining. The second turn takes you onto the road
    that has a spot where it gets very narrow right after the turn and ends with
    the stairs with a statue at the top. After the second checkpoint, you have to
    go around part of the loop here, with the rain you can slide through it even
    easier than before.
    
    ---------------------------
    Race 3: Top Speed Challenge
    ---------------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Water & FDR
    Initial target: 105mph
    Time: 1:30.000
    Advice: Again, if you want to get as many kudos as possible take a practice run
    to see how fast your car can go so you can adjust the target to meet that. The
    track this takes place on is very different from the ones the other top speed
    challenges took place on. You can only get a lot of speed on the straightaway
    that you start on, the other one has a very dangerous S-bend in it that you
    will have to slow down for. Instead of there being one big turn or two smaller
    ones at each end of the track, the first one is made up of three turns of
    varying sizes and the second one is made up of two smaller ones, but they are
    much further apart than the ones in the other tracks. There are also speed
    gates on this track before each series of turns.
    
    ----------------------------
    Race 4: Total Laps Challenge
    ----------------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: St Martins North
    Initial target: 7 laps
    Time: 2:00.000
    Advice: This track is a simple oval. 7 laps is very easy to do, you can
    probably even do 8 on your first try.
    
    --------------------------
    Race 5: Overtake Challenge
    --------------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: East 42nd II
    Initial target: 8 cars
    Time: 3:00.000
    Advice: Another track that is simple in design. What's with all these near the
    end of the game? Well, I guess tracks like the one for the one on one for this
    level make up all of the simple tracks. 8 cars is easy to do. The streets here
    are the average size of the ones in Times Square with no really small ones and
    all of the turns are 90-degrees.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 6: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Sansome St.
    Initial target: 850 Kudos
    Laps: 2
    Advice: Another easy race, you can get way more than 850 kudos here without a
    problem. You might want to boost the target up to at least 1000. You won't be
    able to make it from the first gate to the second gate without forcing a slide.
    Continue on through the next two gates and then slide around the corner. Make
    your slide last long enough to get you close to this next gate. Unless you're
    going very fast, you will have to force slide to get between the gates here.
    Slide around the sharp turn at the end of the street and then slide through the
    next turn. Go through the gates and slide through the turn here. Pass the speed
    gate and the checkpoint on this street. Slide around this turn at the end of 
    the street and then slide around this turn . After the turn ,force a slide to
    get to the speed gate near the end of this street. Pass it, slide around the
    turn and then force a slide to make it to the gates to the right of the cones
    up ahead. Once you pass the third gate, slide around the turn. Force slide your
    way down the street and continue forcing a slide after you pass the first gate
    or two to get to the next ones. Slide around the turn here and pass the
    checkpoint. From here to the starting line there is only one gate and it is
    right before the starting line. If you want to keep your combo going, you're
    going to have to force slide your way all the way through this section of the
    track.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Pacific Heights Loop
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: Your opponents in this race are nothing compared to the might of the
    Carrera GT (Which you better be using). This race is your typical easy race
    through the Pacific Heights. Just watch out for the street with the planters
    before the second checkpoint.
    
    -------------------
    Race 8: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: The Royal Haymarket
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This race beats all others in the category of things in the middle of
    the street. You have to go by the weird traffic light thing, the monuments
    along the long street and through the building with the arches in the street.
    While you avoid those you have to deal with pulling ahead of your opponents.
    They really can get in your way in this race. The Carrera GT is still much
    faster than them, so coming in first won't be all that hard.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Sumitomo-Biru Higashi
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5 laps
    Advice: Right after the first turn you turn onto a street that you've probably
    never been on before. There is a support for an overpass in the middle and then
    some obstructive object right after it. Don't let these things take you by
    surprise. Other than that, this is just your typical race in Shinjuku. Again,
    the Carrera GT is much faster than any of your opponents and will give you an
    easy victory.
    
    -------------------
    Race 10: One On One
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: East 42nd I
    Initial target: -10 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: The race is quite easy and somewhat pointless since the Carrera GT is
    so much better than the Viper in all the categories. The race itself isn't as
    hard as the layout of the track could make it look. No excessively sharp turns
    and no roads that are very narrow.
    
    ********************************************
    8.12 - Level 12: Invitational Season
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 12 (Hot lap - average x2, style challenge x2, average speed challenge,
    top speed challenge, street race x5, one on one)
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 2000 Kudos; Silver - 1500 Kudos; Bronze - 1000 Kudos
    
    Soon you should get to the 200,000 kudos mark and unlock the F50. Once you get
    it, there isn't much of a point to kudos anymore except to get gold medals. The
    F50 performs about the same as the Carrera GT, so it doesn't matter which one
    you use.
    After you beat this season you'll unlock the bonus level.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 1: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Ohme Kaido Nishi
    Initial target: 1 minute 22 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: By now driving in the rain shouldn't be much more difficult than
    driving when it's clear. You'll notice that after the first checkpoint, the
    track gets a bit twisty. It does, but it's nothing that you haven't seen
    before. Speaking of what you've seen before, you'll go through a new part of
    the neighborhood on this track. It's a little underground area after the second
    checkpoint.
    
    -------------------------
    Race 2: Hot Lap - Average
    -------------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: The Rink
    Initial target: 1 minute 35 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Central Park. As you know, that can't be good. Right when you get into
    the park itself you're on one of those narrow trails that winds all over the
    place. Once you get onto the path there is a little tunnel that you have to go
    through, which is even more narrow than the trail. Don't hit the sides of the
    tunnel before going through it. You get a brief break from the trails by the
    first checkpoint, but are thrown back onto them after it. Right after this new
    trail starts, you will have to make a sharp right turn. After the second
    tunnel, past the turn, you have to go through some arches like the ones in
    Trafalgar. Now you'll be in another new area. From here the race is just
    straightaways and a few turns.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 3: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Higashi-Guchi Hairpin
    Initial target: 850 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: The target in this race isn't all that hard to pass up by quite a bit.
    Slide around the first corner and go to the left of the cones to pass the first
    gate. Continue on through the gates and slide around the corner. Go through the
    gates here and go to the left of the barrier to pass a few more gates. Force a
    slide and pass the next three gates. Force another slide to get to the speed
    gate up ahead. Slide around the corner and force slide your way up this street.
    Don't miss the cones on the left in the middle of the turn. Pass the
    checkpoint, then the cone barrier and then slide around the next turn. Pass the
    speed gate here and then force a slide to get to the next two gates. Force
    slide again and go to either side of the cones, there are no gates on either
    side. Continue sliding all the way to the starting line. If you want to make it
    to the next gate you'll have to force a slide to get to the turn and force
    another slide after the turn.
    
    -----------------------
    Race 4: Style Challenge
    -----------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Times Square II
    Initial target: 850 Kudos
    Laps: 3
    Advice: Another style challenge with a very low target. Up it to 1000-1100 if
    you wish for your first try. Go through the gates in front of you and then
    slide through the corner, passing the speed gate to the left in the turn. On
    the next turn there is also a speed gate to the left, but you may not want to
    risk trying to slide through it. Slalom around the cones on the sides and
    through the gates on this street. Slide through the turn and pass the gate.
    Risk sliding through this next turn if you want and pass the gate either way.
    Pass the checkpoint and the gates here and then force a small slide to get to
    the turn. Slide through it, pass the gate and slide around the next turn. Pass
    the gate here and don't even try to risk forcing a slide here. It's far too
    narrow. Go through the gates at the end, take this turn slowly and then go
    through the gates on this street. Slide around the turn and pass through the
    many gates on this street. Slide around the last corner, go through the gate
    and reach the starting line.
    
    -------------------------------
    Race 5: Average Speed Challenge
    -------------------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Minami-Guchi Mae
    Initial target: 65mph
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This race shouldn't be very challenging despite the fog. The turns are
    wide enough for you to go through and keep enough speed to get through the
    checkpoints with much more than the default target of 65mph.
    
    ---------------------------
    Race 6: Top Speed Challenge
    ---------------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: Central Library Loop
    Initial target: 105mph
    Time: 1:30.000
    Advice: This top speed challenge has normal cone gates in addition to speed
    gates. There is a group of cone gates that you'll have to swerve through before
    the first turn. There's a speed gate right after the second turn and more cone
    gates to swerve through at the end of this street. After the last turn there is
    another speed gate.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Kototoi-Bashi
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: It's been a long time since you've last been in Asakusa, hasn't it?
    Don't worry, after the second turn you get to go onto your favorite part of the
    track, the temple complete with the alley leading to it! After that, you go to
    the other side of the river, where the tunnel is.
    
    -------------------
    Race 8: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: 5th Ave East
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: You should probably set the target to 2nd for your first try at this
    race, just in case your screw up. You don't have to go on the paths at all in
    this race, but there are some tight turns. Namely the ones after the first
    checkpoint and the one before the starting line.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: Royal London Challenge
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: Another easy race. You start on the street with the statues, don't let
    the fog cause them to jump out at you. After the first turn, you have to go
    through the spot where the road gets narrow. Past the first checkpoint you also
    have to go around most of the loop.
    
    --------------------
    Race 10: Street Race
    --------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Custom House
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: This race takes place on one of my favorite tracks. I love the tunnel
    and the speed you can get on some parts. You start at the entrance to the
    tunnel on the right side, don't attempt to cross to the left here. Carefully
    try to squeeze by the other cars while you're in the tunnel. Once you get out
    of the tunnel, you'll get some much needed room on this runway-sized road that
    ends all too soon. After that, it's smooth sailing on wide roads up until you
    get to one narrow one right before the starting line. When you get back to the
    tunnel, I'd recommend that you go right again, I find it much easier to make
    the curve on that side.
    
    --------------------
    Race 11: Street Race
    --------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Financial Challenge
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 5
    Advice: The Financial District. Still as easy as it ever was. That one turn
    that is sharp is on this track, however.
    
    -------------------
    Race 12: One On One
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Beaver St
    Initial target: -15 seconds
    Laps: 4
    Advice: Is it me or does this track look like some kind of animal, possibly a
    bunny? Anyway, back to business. Like in the last level with the Viper, this
    comes way too late in the game for the 911 to be a very useful car. You
    shouldn't have any trouble beating it, especially if you can speed through the
    tunnel without hitting the walls. Right after one of the first turns you have
    to go through an alley. Past that, before you get to the tunnel, you have to
    make an S-Bend. When you get to the tunnel, go through the right/inside as I've
    told you to before, unless you find the other side to be easier. Slow down at
    the end, you have to make a turn right after you get out of it. After that, you
    will have to go through one alley. When you get closer to the second
    checkpoint, there is a sharp right around the statue of a bull. From there, you
    go through some smaller roads to get back to the starting line.
    
    ********************************************
    8.13 Level 13: Bonus Level
    ********************************************
    
    Races: 12 (Street race x12)
    Medal Requirements: Gold - 10000 Kudos; Silver - 6500 Kudos; Bronze - 3000
    Kudos
    Note: This level will not show up on the level selection list unless you have
    completed level 12
    
    This is it, the final level. In every race you will be up against two Carrera
    GTs and three F50s. They won't be easy to beat unless you get an early lead on
    them. I'll explain how you can get that lead for every race. During this level
    you're going to probably have to block cars that try to pass you very often.
    You will also need to learn just how to bump cars in front of you to get them
    to spin out so you can easily pass them. When you're in a turn behind another
    car, bump it on the side near the rear wheels and it should spin out causing it
    to fall very far behind in the race. Once you've done this a few times you will
    be able to do it with ease. When setting the target before each race, you
    should probably keep it at third place the first time you do the race and then
    come back and set it at first to get you golds later. Finishing each race with
    a gold medal will get you a new paintjob for a certain car.
    
    -------------------
    Race 1: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Financial District
    Track: Federal Reserve
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: At the very beginning of the race, squeeze your way through the inside
    of the turn and you should be in second or third. From here, you should slowly
    gain on the car in first place and by the end of the first lap or in the
    beginning of the second lap you should be able to pass it. Once you get in
    first, the car in second will do what it can to pass you. Block it if you can
    and if it passes you, bump it.
    
    -------------------
    Race 2: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Fishermans Wharf
    Track: Russian Hill Challenge
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: This race is significantly more difficult than the last one because of
    the hills and smaller turns, if you haven't mastered them yet. You can also use
    these turns to your advantage. When the race starts, don't get caught between
    the cars at the first turn. After that turn, you should be able to get into 2nd
    or 3rd place. From there you can start to catch up to the car in 1st by the
    time you get to the switchback. As long as you don't make any bad mistakes, you
    can easily get a very big lead on all of the other cars. If you continue to do
    just as well, you can easily finish in first place.
    
    -------------------
    Race 3: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: San Francisco - Pacific Heights
    Track: Historic District Challenge
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: You can also use the turns to your advantage on this track. Avoid the
    cars for the first turn and after it you should be in 2nd place. The car that
    is now in 3rd might get close to you and pass you as you get near the street
    with the planters in it. If that car does pass you right before that street
    like it usually does, you can bump him just a little bit and he will ever mess
    with you again. After that, you can start to catch up to the car in first
    place. It might take a few laps, but it can be done. If you bump him on a turn
    like with the car in third, you can claim an easy victory.
    
    -------------------
    Race 4: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - Trafalgar
    Track: Admirality Arch
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 15
    Advice: This track may not have all that many turns to give you chances to pass
    the other cars, but that doesn't mean this race is very hard. Stay away from
    the other cars for the first couple of turns as usual and you'll be able to
    pull ahead of most of them. After a couple of laps you should be able to catch
    up to the first place car. You can either bump him or just pass him when you
    get the chance. If you don't bump him, he may give you some trouble until he
    either passes you and you bump him or he ends up screwing up on the turn after
    the stairs, like many of the other cars do. Once you do bump him or he screws
    up on that turn, this race is a piece of cake.
    
    -------------------
    Race 5: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - Westminster
    Track: Big Ben
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 12
    Advice: This race is MUCH harder than the last ones. There are only four turns
    on the entire track and your opponents have no trouble on them. When the race
    starts, you're going to have to do what you can to avoid all of the cars on the
    first turn. What I did was go to the left of the road you start on, right
    behind the other cars. They went to the right to help them on the turn and I
    stayed to the left and passed some of them. On the turn I forced my way through
    them and was in second afterwards. Now you can slowly start to catch up to the
    car in first. As usual, this may take a couple of laps. Once you get in first,
    things really start to get tough. When in first place you're going to have to
    deal with the cars behind you. Unless you're using manual, they can catch up to
    you on the straightaways and when you get to the turns, they will try to bump
    you and cause you to spin out. Fend them off as best you can and try and come
    in a good position at the end.
    
    -------------------
    Race 6: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: London - St. James' Park
    Track: St. James's Park
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: This race is much, much easier than the last one. You can easily get
    into first place after the first turn. Right when the race starts, go to the
    left side of the road. Brake late for the turn and slide around it with your
    handbrake. You might hit the wall, but you should be in first place. If you
    screw up, you can always restart. The other cars will be close for the first
    lap or two, but soon enough you'll get a significant distance in front of them.
    
    -------------------
    Race 7: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shinjuku
    Track: Koshu Kaido Nishi
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: It'll take you a bit longer to get into first in this race than in the
    last race. After the first turn, you'll probably in fifth place at best. Your
    first big chance to pass some cars is on the second turn and the turns
    following it. After those turns, you should be in second. Once you're in
    second, it may take a lap or two to get into first. When you get further into
    the race the car in second may slowly start catching up to you. If that
    happens, you can always let him pass you and then give him a small bump on a
    turn.
    
    -------------------
    Race 8: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Shibuya
    Track: Shibuya Challenge II
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 12
    Advice: Right when you start this race the F50 that starts in fifth place is
    going to move right into your path. While he goes right in front of you, you
    can move to the left side of the road and pass some of the cars. Take the first
    turn as best as you can with all of the other cars there. After the turn, you
    should be in second or third place. Just like in most of the other races, you
    should slowly be catching up to the car in first and be in first in a few laps.
    Further into the race the car in second will try and take first. If he gets
    into first, you can give him a small bump, as usual.
    
    -------------------
    Race 9: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: Tokyo - Asakusa
    Track: Eki-Mae Hairpin
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: Getting into first right away is going to be a problem again on this
    track. No matter how you take the first turn, you're going to be far behind the
    car in first. When you take the turn, it's easiest to go through the inside. Do
    what you can to get closer to the car in first. The F50s on in this race have
    trouble on the turn before the the tunnel near the start. They often take it
    too quickly and spin out. If that doesn't happen, you can still catch up in a
    lap or two. Once you're in first you will have to deal with the car in second
    trying to pass you, but you know what to do when that happens.
    
    -------------------
    Race 10: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Times Square
    Track: East to West 40th
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: This race is a bit more difficult than the past few, because of the
    long straightaways. Cut through the inside of the first turn and you'll be able
    to get into second place. Just like in the other races, you'll be able to
    slowly catch up to the car in first place. You should be able to get into first
    by the end of the first lap. Once you're in first, you're going to have to deal
    with trying to get passed. Do what you've been doing (Blocking, bumping) to
    hold your position.
    
    -------------------
    Race 11: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Central Park
    Track: Park Loop Reverse
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: Pass up as many cars as you can when you go through the loop. You'll
    probably be able to pass four of them getting you into second place. From there
    you can slowly catch up to the car in first just like in nearly every race in
    this level. You won't need to bump the car in first to keep him from trying to
    pass you, you'll be able to get very far ahead of him. Since you get a lot of
    speed on this track, it is very easy to brake too late and hit something, don't
    be afraid to brake a little bit earlier than you might think you need to.
    
    -------------------
    Race 12: Street Race
    -------------------
    Location: New York - Wall Street
    Track: Water & Nassau
    Initial target: 3rd place
    Laps: 10
    Advice: It's very hard to get a good start on this race, if you don't get a
    good one don't be afraid to restart. When you start, stick to the right of the
    other cars and go along the barrier on the right side. Before the turn you
    should be in third place. You should be able to pass another car while going
    through the turn. After the next few turns you should be in first. Once you're
    in first, the car behind you may try to bump you a few times but eventually
    you'll pull ahead of him.
    
    ===============================================================================
    9. Medal Pursuit & Time Attack
    ===============================================================================
    
    ********************************************
    9.1 - Time Attack
    ********************************************
    
    Time Attack is just like a time trial mode in any racing game, you are put on
    an empty track and race to get the best time or practice on that track.
    Although unlike the other modes in this game, you do not unlock anything in 
    this mode. It's purely for practice and competing against friends to see who
    can get a faster time. New tracks become available for play in Time Attack mode
    after every 50 or 100 miles that you have driven until all of them are
    unlocked. You can also unlock Free Roam, which becomes available in Time Attack
    mode. In Free Roam you get to drive in whichever neighborhood you chose it in,
    but there is no track, you can drive anywhere within the neighborhood's
    boundaries. There are also a set number of cones placed around the neighborhood
    for you to hit, hitting them all ends the game and the time it took you to hit
    them all is recorded.
    
    ********************************************
    9.2 - Getting Free Roam
    ********************************************
    
    Getting Free Roam isn't all that hard. All you have to do to open it is to get
    all gold or silver medals on the level in Kudos Challenge which corresponds to
    the city which you want to unlock Free Roam for. For example, to unlock free
    roam in San Francisco, get only gold and silver medals in level 3 of Kudos
    Challenge. Once you have unlocked Free Roam for a city, go into Time Attack
    mode and go to one of the city's three neighborhoods. You can find Free Roam at
    the top of the list of tracks.
    One you get Free Roam, there is an exploit you can use to get a time of
    0:00.000 Start a Free Roam and hit all of the cones. On the menu after the
    race, choose retry. When the race starts, pause the game and exit. You'll now
    have a time of 0:00.000 added to the scoreboard.
    
    ********************************************
    9.3 - Medal Pursuit
    ********************************************
    
    This mode becomes available after 5 hours of play. Each medal you get will
    unlock a new paintjob for the car that used to get that medal.
