    Hello, and welcome to my FAQ/Walkthrough for Midnight Club II. I have not 
    played Midnight Club II for very long, so this is isn't my favourite game and 
    I don't know much about it, so you might want to look at the other guides for 
    this game because they're probably better. Anyway, I'm not very good at 
    introducing myself in FAQs, so let's just get on with the guide, OK!?

    Version 1.00 - Saturday, 4th September - Started to write this guide. I 
    borrowed this game off a friend not too long ago and completed it. He agreed 
    to let me borrow it until I complete this guide, quite generous of him. 
    Anyway, all of the walkthrough is complete, and most of the guide is complete. 
    Don't expect a lot more updates.

    If you want to play the game, you'll need to no the controls. The further you
    get in the game (which should be no problem with my FAQ...heh heh...), the 
    more controls and special features you can use, like nitrous (boost) and 
    weight transfer. This section will tell you how to use the basic controls. If 
    you are not clear on how to use them, there is a much clearer version on the 
    options menu in the game.

     ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    
    Basic Controls Explained:
    =========================
    
    Left Analogue Stick: 
    Basically, when you're car is moving, the left analogue stick moves your car 
    in the same direction you move the stick. Be careful, though, because some 
    cars and motorcycles can easily skid out of control.
    
    Right Anaolgue Stick: 
    The right analogue stick can move your car. Most people use X and Square to 
    accelerate and reverse, but you can also use the right anaologue stick. If you 
    push it up, you will accelerate, and if you push it down, you will reverse. 
    This is quite useful if you want to move at a certain speed.
    
    R3: 
    This beeps your horn. Doesn't really have a purpose.
    
    L3: 
    This flashes the lights at the front of your car/bike. This button is only 
    used to show other street racers that you want to race with them. Other than 
    that, I can't think of any other reason why you should use this button.
    
    R1: 
    The handbrake. Basically, if you're going really fast and you need to pull a 
    sharp turn, press or hold this button. It will make your turn easier and your 
    vehicle will usually skid. Be careful using this button, though, because you 
    can sometimes spin out of control.
    
    R2: 
    This uses your nitrous. A nitrous is just a boost, but your car can only hold 
    so many of them (the maximum is 5). Pressing R2 will also perform a Slipstream 
    Turbo, but look at the section below on more info on that.
    
    L1: 
    Again, check the section below to find out more about weight transfer.
    
    L2: 
    Holding L2 will change your camera angle so you can see what's behind you. 
    You shouldn't use this much because you can easily crash because you can't 
    see where you're going. This is usually used to see what the vehicles behind 
    you are up to.
    
    Circle: 
    The handbrake. Basically, if you're going really fast and you need to pull a 
    sharp turn, press or hold this button. It will make your turn easier and your 
    vehicle will usually skid. Be careful using this button, though, because you 
    can sometimes spin out of control.
    
    Square: 
    This slows down your vehicle, but not as fast as the handbrake. Once this has 
    slowed down your vehicle, you will reverse. 
    
    X: 
    This accelerates your vehicle. Obviously, the longer you hold it, the faster 
    your car goes because no car gets to its top speed straight away. Never take 
    your thumb off this button unless you really need to stop straight away.
    
    Traingle: 
    All this does is change your camera angle/view. If you don't like the default 
    camera angle for some reason, you can change it to first person view or other 
    angles. You might want to play about with this button at first to get used to 
    the different camera angles so you know what one you like best.
    
    Up D-Pad: 
    Pressing this will show you the whole map of the city you are racing in. It 
    will take up your whole screen though, so only use it briefly or you'll crash, 
    unless you can see through the map outline.
    
    Left/right D-Pad: 
    This will change the song you are listening to. All three of the cities have 
    about 10 different tracks. Los Angeles tends to have more rap/hip hop music, 
    Paris has some dance/club music, and Tokyo has more Techno music. I'm not 
    sure if you'll like much of the songs but oh well.

    As you proceed during the game, you will be told that you unlocked something
    other than a car. The things that you unlock during the game should improve
    your driving skills. I'm writing this little section to tell you how to use
    these controls properly, and where to find your special driving skills.
    
    NOTE: Nearly all of the unlocked controls are unlocked in LA. Just so you know
    and I don't get any stupid Emails.
    
    =---------=
    + Nitrous +
    =---------=
    
    I wouldn't usually call this an extra maneuver, because you unlock it just by 
    beating the first race. Anyway, your nitrous is just a boost. Pressing R2 will 
    turn on your nitrous. Two blue flames of fire should appear at the back of 
    your car, giving you an extra boost. However, you only have a limited amount 
    of nitrous'. At the early stages of the game, you only have one nitrous per 
    race. But, you can earn a maximum of five boosts, but only at the very latter 
    stages of the game that is.
    
    =---------=
    + Burnout +
    =---------=
    
    At the start of any race or whenever your car is still, hold down the
    handbrake and the accelerator at the same time. Your wheels will produce smoke
    and the meter on the right of the screen will fill up. Release the handbrake
    and your car/bike will get an extra boost. Once you have unlocked this trick, 
    always do a burnout whenever your car is still. It helps a lot and it will get 
    you out of tight situations.
    
    =-----------------=
    + In-air controls +
    =-----------------=
    
    When you drive up a ramp and your car is in the air, hold down the L1 button 
    and move the left stick in the direction you want the car to land. In-air 
    controls are best used when you hit a ramp from a slightly different angle and 
    you lose control in the air. This should also make landing a lot easier.
    
    =-------------------=
    + Slip-stream Turbo +
    =-------------------=
    
    When you are behind a car, the metre on the right of the screen will fill up. 
    When it is full, press the R2 button to get an extra boost without losing a 
    Nitrous. Pretty cool, eh. Use this quite often as it is a very helpful trick.
    
    =-------------------=
    + Two Wheel Driving +
    =-------------------=
    
    When you are driving on the road and you want to squeeze through a tight space, 
    hold down the L1 button and move the left stick in the direction you want your 
    car to go on two wheels. It looks cool and it is quite hard to pull off so 
    don't try too hard to use it in races. I would just use it for show.

    4.0 Tips in Racing -----------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    +*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
    
    This section is basically just a few tips on how to complete this game as soon
    as possible and lower frustration to the minimum level. Midnight club II is by
    far the best street racing game I have ever played but however, it can make
    you so angry at sometimes, (especially during Tokyo in career mode) it's the
    sort of thing that makes you want to smash your PS2 into the ground and bury
    it somewhere where nobody will find it. I'm here to make sure you don't do
    that and to make you the best illegal street racer in the world.
    
    Always do a burnout before the race actually starts, and if you are facing in
    the wrong direction, just position yourself to where you want to go by
    pressing left or right (Donut) whilst holding down X + R1, and you'll blast
    off like a rocket. And if you take a massive hit and you are not moving, do a
    burnout or a donut to get back to your normal speed and catch up with the
    other racers.
    
    Whenever you need to squeeze through tight spaces, go on two wheels as you're
    driving. Try not to flip over on the roof of the car, though, because that 
    will lose precious seconds and it may lose you the race.
    
    When you are racing against motorbikes, try and knock them off their bike to
    get in front of them easily. Bikes are faster than cars so if you cheat and 
    knock them off their bikes, you can easily get in front.
    
    This tip is always a good way to win a race. Whenever you're behind someone,
    hit their back wheel to make them skid and turn around, so that they're facing
    in the wrong direction, allowing you to quickly get in front of them and
    hopefully win the race, if done correctly. Note: When you ram there back
    wheel, (either side) the person you hit will usually come back for revenge and
    do just what you did to them. An easy way to avoid this is to find a pole, a
    wall or a tree that doesn't break when you drive into it, and just as the
    driver is coming up behind you, drive up to one of the objects that I
    mentioned before and quickly turn away from the object, making the other racer
    crash into it. This is also a good way to get rid of the police.
    
    If you only have one nitrous, save it until the end of the race. If you have
    more than one nitrous, use it just before a huge jump or ramp to get a little
    extra speed. Don't do this on every level, though, because you might need to 
    use a nitreous or two when you're WAY behind from the other racers.
    
    Whenever you're on your bike, do a wheelie (L1 + down) to pick up a lot of
    speed. By doing this you have a much greater advantage over cars because it's
    like an extra nitrous, only you can do it whenever you want to. I would advise
    you to not to do a wheelie when you are about to turn; it might cause you to
    crash. Another trick with your motorbike is the weight transfer. Holding L1 
    will make your character duck down allowing you to turn easier and go a little 
    bit faster. 
    
    Usually when you are just about to race up a long ramp, you might lose your
    balance while you are in the air. Hold down L1 when you're in the air and the
    direction (left, right, up or down) you would like to land in. If you do this
    correctly, you should save a lot of time and speed.
    
    If you are stuck on a race and you don't know what car to use, exit to front
    end on the pause menu and then look at your cars. Press square to see the car
    statistics and what cars are best at what.

    Career mode is basically the main part of the game. It lets you race other
    people around the city and win their cars. Career mode lets you complete most
    of the game; the other part in the game is earned in the arcade mode. The
    further you get in the game, the better the cars you get. Races gradually get
    harder the more you play the game, the more you play the game the more fun it
    should get. Slowly you will gain a reputation around the world and soon be
    champion of the world. You may think it but there is no disadvantage with what
    car you have to what car you are racing.
    
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    5.1 Los Angeles
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    There are three cities in the game, L.A, Paris and Tokyo. Out of the three, I
    would say L.A is the worst, least Fun City in the game, and it's the easiest
    too. It hardly has any short-cuts, and there's really only just one huge
    freeway that runs around the whole city. But there's one thing that I really
    like about L.A and it's the Dam. You can do some heavy jumps in it. It is used
    in most of the races in L.A.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
     5.1a) Moses 
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Moses is one of the main characters in L.A, he is the first person you race
    and he sets you up with other racers around town. When you start the game, you
    are told to flash your lights at Moses (L3) and follow him to the race point.
    
    ============
     Initiation
    ============
    
    This is the first race of the game; of course it's going to be easy. You don't
    really need directions; it's just a straight road with minor curves. Try and
    beat 1.00 without cheats.
    
    =====================
     Welcome to the club
    =====================
    
    This just one of the many proper races that you'll have in the game, you
    shouldn't find it to hard to beat. Go around the police car and turn right at
    the first checkpoint. Try and over-take Moses here and race up the stairs. You
    should land on the highway, when you do land on the highway, turn left. Just
    clear the next few checkpoints without hassle. When the last checkpoint is on
    your mini-map, instead of turning left then right, go through the narrow alley
    to find that the final checkpoint is on your left.
    
    You have won the Citi.
    
    You now have the Nitrous, which is an extra boost when you press R2.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-
     5.1b) Steven 
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    ==============
     Takeoff time
    ==============
    
    This isn't really a race, you have a time limit, and every time you clear a
    point, you get time added on to get the next checkpoint. Head straight to the
    first checkpoint; go through the gates for the next one. You should easily be
    able to find the next two checkpoints without directions.
    
    ===============
     Triple threat
    ===============
    
    This is the first race that you have where can collect the checkpoints in any
    order. I'm going to give you the easiest route to take, you might find another
    route but mine is quicker. Go straight ahead to the first one, turns right and
    the rest of the checkpoints are easy to find. If you don't understand my
    route, just follow Steven to the end the first time round, then just do the
    same route as Steven but faster.
    
    You win the Emu.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
     5.1c) Maria 
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    After you follow Maria, it will tell you that you have unlocked in-air
    controls.
    
    The best car to use for the next two races is the Citi.
    
    ===============
     Freeway rally
    ===============
    
    Most of this race is on the highway, so watch out for the traffic. Cut through
    the grass and dodge the trees. You have to jump off of where you are now and
    onto the highway, stay with the other racers and dodge the traffic. There is a
    police helicopter shining a light on the highway, try not to get caught in the
    light, sometimes police cars come and catch you if you stay in the light for
    too long. There is one point where a massive lorry turns in front of you,
    chill don't panic, just go in-between the wheels and find yourself in front
    (Most of the other cars crash here).  Just go through the next few checkpoints
    the next and last time you get off of the highway, there is one sharp turn.
    
    ===============
     Corner cutter
    ===============
    
    This race is just you and Maria. Every time you clear a point, you get time
    added on for the next one. It's just like Steven's first race only this time
    your racing someone. Just smoothly complete this one by just making a few
    sharp turns. Nothing to look out for apart the police road block towards the
    end of the race and keep your balance when you jump off the grass at the end
    of the race.
    
    You win the Torrida
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
     5.1d) Angel 
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    The Torrida is the best car to use for the next three races
    
    ====================
     Hollywood Hysteria
    ====================
    
    I only have one route to win this race, there are others but I personally
    think my route is best but you might think differently. Start facing the right
    and then make a right at every checkpoint until you are at the snake road.
    
    This is when it gets tricky. You have to make the second right and then left
    at the checkpoint and make your way back to the snake road, try and stay with
    the other cars. Now follow the other cars until you are on the really straight
    road, here's where you use your nitrous.
    
    You have unlocked the burnout.

    On this one you are racing Angel's Dad. Do a burnout; avoid the bus and then
    jump off of the road. The checkpoints are basically just on the LA river.
    Watch out for the two ramps, hit the one on the right and keep a good balance
    in the air, you'll need it. The next two checkpoints are on the slanted wall
    on the left, stay on the wall until you get the second one. Gets back on the
    floor and use your Nitrous. The next checkpoint is straight ahead. Once you've
    collected it jump the wall on your right. If you have enough speed, jump over
    the buildings, and if you're in front of him by far then slow down at the last
    blue checkpoint and get on the road to find yourself at home.
    
    You win the 1971 Bestia
    
    ====================
     Cheaters never win
    ====================
    
    In this race, if you fall behind, you'll probably catch up again, so don't
    restart the race. Make the first left and hit the back of Angel's car, now
    turn right across the bridge, left and then another left across the bridge.
    Now, there are different ways to go from here. I'm going to tell you two ways.
    
    1) You can turn right when you get off of the bridge and make the first left.
    2) This is a short cut that I found when I crashed into a car. Anyway, If you
    turn right once you're off the bridge again, there is a very narrow alley on
    the left. Slow down if you don't know where it is. Try the race a few times
    and know where it is, turn right out of the alley, trust me it's quicker.
    
    Now, clear the next point and head across the long and straight road. Now,
    before this checkpoint, do a 180 degrees turn so that the back of your car
    hits the point. Do a burnout, and avoid the truck, left, right or under to
    avoid the truck. Use your nitrous and smash through the glass and slightly to
    the right is the next checkpoint, now go towards the road on the left at top
    speed. Turn right once you're on the road to get the next one. Take the second
    right, and then take the first left. Smash through the fence on your right and
    go under the building-site and turn right.
    
    You win the Interna

    You should take the lead early on if you do a burnout. Take the obvious turns
    at the first three checkpoints. Head straight for the next one, now there are
    a set of stairs on your left. Jump them and head for the next checkpoint. Keep
    going straight until you can see the next checkpoint inside a car park, get
    the checkpoint and quickly escape the car park on your right. The rest is
    simple, find your way to the end and just follow your nose. It should be a lot 
    easier doing it yourself than following my directions.

     Showdown 
    ==========
    
    This is your the first race that includes motorcycles so, a little tip: knock
    anyone who is in front of you off their bikes!
    
    This race is quite short, so you won't need directions for it, but, when 
    you're on the bit where you have to left, right, left, right etc. Start going 
    left first and do not crash. When you are back on the main road, boost when 
    the orange checkpoint is on your map.

    This isn't actually a race; it's just for you to get used to a bike. Just head
    to the checkpoint on the other side of the city doing wheelies and stuff. If
    you don't complete this on your first try, you'll have a problem completing
    the next race.
    
    ======================
     Flight to the Finish
    ======================
    
    Traffic is high in this race, so I would use the Cohete. Get onto the highway,
    if you are behind, does a wheelie. Once you've collected the third checkpoint,
    you have to turn right, it's a sharp turn so hold down L1. Now you should be
    on the airport road that goes round in circles. Watch out for turning
    vehicles, especially limos and buses. 
    
    Once you clear the airport bit, turn right; watch out for the cops. Turn 
    left at the next point and go through the parking lot. Turn left once you're 
    out of the parking lot to get the next checkpoint. Continue going straight to 
    get the next two. The next one is on the grass, use L1 to turn here. Follow 
    the road to the next one and brake through the fence into the construction 
    site and jump the ramp.
    
    You win the Citi Turbo

    ===============
    
    This one is so easy, I completed it on my first try. It's not actually a race;
    you just have to lose the cops. Head towards the checkpoint and go down any
    alleyway or jump any ramps you can find. When you've lost the cops, quickly
    make your way to the next race.

     Block Party 
    =============
    
    This is another race where you can collect the checkpoints in any order. Start
    by going in the direction you're facing in (follow the pack) and take a left
    across the bridge. The first checkpoint is right in front of you, get it and
    turn right, now turn left. Turn at the second right and there should be two
    checkpoints in front of you, turn right at the second one to get the next one.
    
    Don't turn left now, keep going straight and collect the next three
    checkpoints - on the right - in any order. Now, make your way to the last four
    checkpoints and collect them so that the one you get last is nearest to the
    last one. (If that makes sense. Think about it)

    This one is too easy, and if you win it, you get to race the champ. I'm to
    lazy to give you street racers directions that you don't really need, so I'm
    just gonna give you one little shortcut. Once you've cleared the last blue
    checkpoint, cross the small bridge and just to your left is a brown and rusty
    fence. Smash through it and go up the ramp at top speed and you should land on
    some rooftops. Keep going straight to find your self with the Monstruo.

     Crossover
    ===========
    
    This race takes quite long to start, so keep on your mark; the game has not
    frozen. If you get a very good start, stay at the front of the pack, but if
    you get a bad start, stay at the back because nearly all of the racers crash
    when you turn right. Get the first checkpoint and turn left, try and use the
    Slipstream Turbo if you get the chance. Turn left and clear the next two
    checkpoints, now you have to go in and out of the trees, clear all of those
    points and go down the hill. There is a really sharp turn coming up on your
    right. Make your way onto the highway and follow the checkpoints until you
    have to jump off of the highway onto a construction site bellow. Smash through
    the fence and the rest is quite simple, there are a lot of different routes
    here, pick the one you're familiar with, or just follow the other racers.
    
    It shouldn't be too hard if you try it a couple of times. If you fall behind,
    don't give up. It's a very long course so you've got a lot of time to catch
    up.

    The checkpoints on this race are very far apart so there are millions of
    different routes. I'm only going to tell you the way I think is best. I found
    that if you jump the steps and go down the road on your left and smash through
    the glass in front of you, and approach the checkpoint from the left. Now, go
    onto the s-type road and get the next checkpoint, avoiding the other racers.
    Keep going until you are under the stadium. Keep making the obvious turns and
    be sure to hit the jump over the Dam. You should now be on the last blue
    checkpoint. There is some glass slightly to the right. Smash through it and
    use your Nitrous. There is a huge jump ahead, hit it and you'll see huge
    writing telling you that you have unlocked two-wheel driving.

    Paris is my favourite city in the game; it's got the most shortcuts in the
    whole game. I really enjoy going up ramps. When I'm bored, I put on infinite
    Nitrous (See cheats at the bottom) and go on a little cruise around the city
    with the SLF45OX.

    Blog is the very first street racer you race in Paris. He is a DJ and he makes 
    his money everywhere around the world. He comes from East London, which is a 
    bit annoying because that's quite near to where I live. Anyway, I just hope 
    you can put up with his annoying voice.
    
    For the first race in Paris, this race is pretty easy. I would use the Jersy 
    XS. When you start, try and put the Slipstream Turbo to some use and make 
    sure that the back of your car hits the first checkpoint by doing a 180 on the 
    grass and doing a burnout. Sometimes, it's a good time to use your Nitrous on 
    the way back to where you started. A sharp right turn is coming up, then 
    another one left. There aren't any major shortcuts in this race. You shouldn't 
    be stuck on this race for very long.
    
    Use your Nitrous when the last checkpoint is in sight. If you've got loads of
    time at the end of the race, pop up on two wheels to zoom through the three
    pillars. It looks really cool, but your car might tip upside-down and you'll
    lose the race. But hey, you've got nothing to lose.
    
    =================
     Rooftops Vistas 
    =================
    
    This is probably one of the most enjoyable races in the game. It was actually
    the first race I had a go at; I played it at my friend's house, so thanks to
    Frankie "Frank-master" for showing me all of the shortcuts and jumps.
    
    Start by going straight and turning right after the second bridge crossing.
    Now, there is a very useful shortcut, turn left the moment you get the next
    checkpoint through the gate. In front of you, you should see a massive red,
    long ramp. Speed up it and use your Nitrous to fly high up into the sky. You
    might land out of the course but, if you land on the wooden floor that slows
    you down, you're in the right place.
    
    Now, there is another useful shortcut here. As soon as you hit the next
    checkpoint, turn left down an alleyway. Go left up the ramp and now turn
    right. You should be going up an alleyway now and approaching a ramp off some
    rooftops. NOTE: There are a lot of neat jumps around here. When you land on
    the road, turn right. Follow the checkpoints to an alley that leads to another
    set of rooftops. When you're jumping off of the rooftops, keep to the right
    and make sure that you actually jump over the rooftop. Head left across river,
    when you get the next checkpoint, quickly take a left down another alley to
    save a lot of time.
    
    Once you're out of the alley turn right down the road into a big, open space
    next to the ramp you went up in the beginning. Head to the top left corner of
    the huge space into some alleyways; try not to get lost here. Once you clear
    the next point, go left down an alley and another left onto the road. Make a
    hard right into another alley that bends slightly for another little shortcut.
    There is another alley ahead of you just as you leave the last one. Slide down
    these narrow alleyways and you'll be back at that massive, open space again.
    Go through the checkpoint in the open space and through yet another alley.
    
    There is a tunnel coming up so, keep to the right. Race up the road that runs
    along the river and slow down when you go up onto a bridge on the left,
    otherwise, you'll lose. Head along the bridge, past the first road to the left
    and on your left you should see an alleyway with a bit of grass in it. Zoom
    out of it onto some grass, go up the little ramp slowly and head into the
    Cathedral.
    
    You win the Boost

    Jewel & Julie are twins who say that they are the best duel racers in the
    world. You're better than them, so it shouldn't be too hard to show them up. 
    You can collect the checkpoints in any order in this race, and the 
    checkpoints are in a loop. There are three different cars in this race, your 
    car, (Boost recommended) Bryanston V(s) and Jersy XS(s). The Bryanston Vs 
    start on the right, and the Jersy XSs start on the left. I would go with the 
    Bryanston Vs. Just follow the checkpoints one-by-one. When you reach the 
    checkpoint that connects the loop, go through the parking lot on your right 
    to avoid the Jersy XSs coming the other way. There are roadblocks ahead, you 
    can smash through the green ones, but the black ones are as hard as rocks. At 
    the end you can either jump the ramp or go around it. Jump it, just for the 
    fun of it and make sure you land properly, because this jump once lost me this 
    race.

     Roller Coaster 
    ================
    
    Try and use your Slipstream Turbo at the very start of the race, but don't go
    too fast or you'll miss the turning. It's a sharp right turn to your right,
    and then you have to make another right turn onto a straight road, try and use
    your Slipstream Turbo here. When everyone is turning right here, slow down,
    but don't turn yet. There is an alley with a bright red P on it, crash through
    the two fences and continue through another set of alleyways. Once you're out
    of the alleyways, you can either turn left and through another alleyway on
    your right. Or you can take the right. I would take the right and tag the
    shadow of the checkpoint on the grass and zoom through the alley on the right.
    
    Now you'll have to jump onto the freeway, heading left. Make a hard left into
    the gas station after the checkpoint on the freeway. Go up the ramp on your
    right and make your way back into yet another alleyway. Once you're out of the
    alley, there will be a massive hill of grass with steps in the middle. Jump
    the grass on the right side of the hill using the Nitrous. Aim to the right of
    the checkpoint to avoid the buildings. When you land, there should be two
    hills going down, go down the hill on your right. Zoom out of the hill and
    head under the arches and there should be a roundabout. Go to the left side of
    the roundabout and jump the ramp, through the glass to get the finish line.
    
    You win the Bryanston V

     Seine Insane 
    ==============
    
    You can collect the checkpoints in any order in this race. Start by getting
    the two in front of you, when you get the third one-which is just ahead-turn
    right. Get the one in front of you and make a really sharp right turn onto the
    road next to the river. (underneath you) Get the one on the road and the next
    two are just ahead. For the next one, you have to jump the hill, when you are
    jumping, aim just slightly to the left to avoid the tree. Clear the next one
    and go under the tunnel that bends slightly. The next one is on the bend, but
    watch out for the other racers coming in the other direction.
    
    The next two are obvious, but after the second one, you have to turn right to
    get the next one. After you collect that one, get the one in front of you and
    make your way to the road again. You have to jump the road again now for the
    next three. For the next one, instead of jumping the road again, slow down and
    turn off the road and head in the other direction. I think you can find the
    last one by yourself now. Make the obvious turns and the last one is in that
    big open space again.
    
    ========
     Swerve 
    ========
    
    I would use the Jersy XS for this race, because I changed the route a bit at
    the beginning. Do a burnout at the beginning and turn your car around, there
    is an alley to the left, go down it and turn right. It's easier with the Jersy
    XS because you can turn quicker while doing a burnout, trust me it's quicker.
    Go straight and brake through the small fence onto the freeway. Be aware that
    you have to change sides of the freeway into the gas station. Go through it
    and change sides again. When you get the checkpoint on the other side, you
    have to go in and out of the pillars of the bridge. When you have got the next
    one, you have to get off the freeway.
    
    Go to the right turn of the roundabout ahead and turn right at the next point.
    Ahead is an alleyway with a few checkpoints in it; once you're out of the
    alleyway, you have to get back on the freeway. Once you're on the freeway, you
    have to get straight back off it again. Go through another alleyway on the
    right once you're of the freeway. The last bit of the race is straight
    forwards with minor curves. The last checkpoint is on some grass.

    You can collect the checkpoints in any order in this race; Stephane picks the
    best route. Start by collecting the first three checkpoints going anti-
    clockwise. Once the third one is done, go down the road in front of you. Take
    the second left for the next three and again go anti-clockwise. Get out of
    that bit and take the third left, take the next right through the arches for
    the next two checkpoints. 
    
    Keep going straight through some more arches and over a small, wooden bridge. 
    Go through a set of alleyways slightly to the right once you've crossed the 
    bridge. When you're out of the alleyways, turn left and collect the next three 
    checkpoints, in an anti-clockwise order and zoom down the road ahead. The next 
    three checkpoints are just ahead, collect them in an anti-clockwise order 
    again and go to the road to the left if you collect them in an anti-clockwise 
    order. The rest is simple.
    
    ================
     Over and Under 
    ================
    
    Start by going up the hill with the rest of the group and try and use your
    Slipstream Turbo, keep good balance in the air. Go down the next hill and make
    a diagonal turn left down another hill. At the next one turn right; watch out
    for the police roadblock ahead, Keep going straight for the next one. You have
    to make a diagonal turn right and make a hard turn right underground. Clear
    the points easily and once you're out of their, use your Nitrous to jump the
    Pyramid thing and get the next checkpoint in the air.
    
    Go under the tunnel to your left and once you're out of the tunnel; slow down
    to get the next checkpoint to the right, and go through the alley and turn
    left. Make a hard left again and make your way back under the tunnel. Halfway
    through the tunnel, you'll come between a right and left, go right. Now go
    left this time. Again, Slow down as you leave the tunnel and turn left through
    yet another alleyway. Turn right out of the alleyway. Turn right at the next
    checkpoint and there will be two hills, go up the right one. The rest is too
    easy. The finish line is on the Freeway.

     The Art of Racing 
    ===================
    
    The beginning of this race is really hard. When you start, go on two wheels to
    avoid the red carriages going round in circles. The next bit's tricky, you
    have to go in and out of some concrete with grass on it that's as hard as
    rock. When you're out of there, there should be a small roundabout in front of
    you, go left through the arches and watch out for the buses. Go to the end of
    the road and turn right. Once the one in front of you is cleared, turn right
    down an alleyway and left out of the alley for the next point
    
    Continue to drive forwards and down a small alleyway. Turn right out of it and
    head for the next checkpoint. When you have cleared it, just to the right is a
    ramp that leads through some glass. Jump it and the next checkpoint is right
    in front. Get the one in the grass thing again and go straight out of it. You
    have to go through that huge wheel now that has red carriages, Here's where
    you squeeze R2 for a Nitrous. The next checkpoint is in the middle of that
    giant arch and you have to turn right as soon as you're out of it and down a
    road. Get the next couple of checkpoints and jump of them steps and don't land
    in the water fountain. You have to now go on that road that you went down in
    Primo's first race. Get off of that road with the first chance you get. You
    have to finish the race now with that huge pyramid jump again.
    
    =====================
     Few and Far Between 
    =====================
    
    This race is quite hard, considering that you are racing against motorcycles.
    Traffic is low and the checkpoints are really far apart. I am not going to
    give you directions. There aren't any shortcuts really, just go on two wheels
    when you come across narrow arches. Use your Nitrous on the river jump and
    don't follow the motorcycles.

    You won Ian's car and now he wants to win it back on a bike. He says he's good
    on a bike and I'm not sure if that's true or not, just watch out. Start by
    knocking the other bikers of their bikes and going down the alley in front of
    you. Turn left out of the alley and then right. The next one is on a
    roundabout. Go around the roundabout anticlockwise so you clear the checkpoint
    from the right. Go down the road in front of you when you clear the checkpoint
    and turn left at the turning before the end of the road. Turn left somewhere
    for the next one and then turn right. Make the first right again and the next
    one is on another roundabout.
    
    Approach the checkpoint the same way you did on the first one. Go for the next
    point and turn right onto the freeway. After the first checkpoint you clear on
    the freeway, you have to change sides of the freeway. You have to swap sides
    again after the first checkpoint on the other side. Go through the gas station
    and clear the point just outside it. Now, get off the freeway, clear the point
    and turn right. The next two are straightforward. The last one is in a car
    park with a bright P on it like most car parks and alleyways.

    Farid is an underground street racer escaping the cops, whatever you do, don't
    use a bike. He is not a very good racer and his first race is easy. Once
    you're out of the first sewage tunnel, the next underground tunnel is just
    behind the pillars in front of you. Next, you are outside for about a second.
    Turn right as soon as you hit the checkpoint and go back inside another sewage
    tunnel. Pillars are in the way of the next tunnel again, but this time the
    tunnel is on the right. Now you are outside. (Turn left out of the tunnel.)
    Watch out for the Ambulance crossing the road and go straight on. Past the
    Ambulance take the first left and then turn right through the arches. The next
    checkpoint leads you underground again into another sewage tunnel.
    
    Once you're out of the tunnel, go straight through the grass and into the
    Cathedral. Turn right out of the Cathedral and then left. Police try and pull
    you over here so, try and crash them into walls. Get the checkpoint on the
    grass and go down the road to the right of the Cathedral. Make your first or
    second left, it doesn't matter and go down the alley for the next one. Go
    straight and use your Nitrous to jump the river and through the arches. If
    you're going fast enough you will jump over the arches but that's unlikely to
    happen. The last checkpoint is opposite the pyramid thing leading underground.
    
    ===============
     Lose the Cops 
    ===============
    
    This isn't really a race; you just have to lose the cops like on Hector's
    first race. You have to get to the checkpoint without the cops following you
    there. I would suggest that you go underground whenever you get the chance.
    You have only got two minutes so don't take too long hiding underground. You
    can find cops on the mini map, there the blue arrows.

    You are racing someone other than Farid. This time, you're racing against Owen.
    He needs something from Farid's car, but instead of arresting you, he wants to
    race you. Boy, he must be confident. He is probably a better racer than Farid 
    so don't expect to beat him on your first attempt. It should take you a couple 
    of times to beat this guy, so don't get frustrated when you lose on your first 
    race.
    
    Start by going up the steps and through 
    some arches, go down the grass, clear the point and go left down another hill.
    Turn right as soon as you can and clear the checkpoint on the grass. Turn left
    and then right at the roundabout. Turn left onto the freeway, clear the point
    and change sides of the freeway. You have to change sides again to get the
    next checkpoint and then turn left through the gas station. Turn right coming
    out of the gas station and down the alley.
    
    Turn right onto the road and then turn right again. You now have to turn left
    onto the freeway. Swap sides of the freeway after the first checkpoint on the
    freeway for the next point. Swap sides again and turn left off the freeway. A
    roundabout is just ahead and you have to turn right at the roundabout down an
    alleyway. It's quite hard to see. The next checkpoints are in a zigzag in and
    out of the alleyways. On the last blue checkpoint, turn right through a fence
    and jump the ramp. The final checkpoint is in another alleyway with some grass
    in it.
    
    You win the Victory

     View From Above 
    =================
    
    You start behind in this race but that doesn't matter. At the start of this
    race you can both get on the main road, take the first right and go left
    through an alley that leads to a ramp. Or you can stay on the main roads. The
    jump is quicker but harder and the main road is slower and easier.
    
    Get the next checkpoint and turn right through another alleyway and cut
    through the grass on your right. (Watch out for the trees here) Get the
    checkpoint and turn left. Straight-ahead is an alleyway that leads to a jump
    over the river, gets onto the ramp but don't use your Nitrous or you'll fly
    off course. You should land in a little tunnel that ends in the middle of
    loads of alleys. Go down the one on the left. Get the checkpoint and go right
    up a huge red ramp. When you land, go left and on the road, go down the one in
    front of you. Follow this road and take the second right up a bumpy hill. Get
    the checkpoint and go left then right. You should be on a bending road. Jump
    off the hill and go through the alleyway in the top right corner.
    
    Turn left and then take a right. Follow this road and turn right, go down the
    alleyway in front of you and jump onto some rooftops. Now keep going through a
    straight red tunnel and jump over the river. The next checkpoint is on some
    grass, get it and brake through the underground tunnel. When you're out of the
    tunnel, the checkpoint is on the left. You now have to jump the river again on
    a wooden ramp, use your Nitrous or you'll go way too slow and lose the race.
    
    Get the checkpoint and keep going forwards up a hill. Turn right down the road
    at the checkpoint and jump down the hill. Go down the alleyway just to your
    left and the final point is too the left aswell.
    
    ======
     Haul 
    ======
    
    You start this race where you finished last time, only you're facing in the
    opposite direction this time. Start by going down the alley in front of you
    and turning left slightly through the grass, make sure that you get on the
    right side of the rocks. Smash through the bars on your left and turn right
    out of the alleyway. Get the checkpoint on the main road go around huge statue
    with four pillars in the middle. Go up the road behind the pillars, get the
    checkpoint on the hill and turn left.
    
    Now, instead of turning left and going down the road, cut through the grass
    and into the building. When you're in the building, you will notice that the
    building forms a shape of a ramp. When you land, you should be on another
    ramp, so jump it. You should be on some grass now, go left and get onto the
    road. Follow the road to a roundabout and turn left. The next two are on the
    same road. After the second one, the next point is on a roundabout. You have
    to go around the whole roundabout because the next checkpoint is behind you.
    Get the checkpoint and make the first left.
    
    The next one is on that river road again, but you get off of the road straight
    away. Once you're off the road, go down the road that the checkpoint's on. Go
    through the tunnel now and turn right in the tunnel. Now turn left. Turn right
    when you're out of the tunnel and then take your first left. Turn right just a
    bit so that you can jump the ramp through the glass for a shortcut. Get the
    checkpoint and keep going forwards through the big wheel. The last checkpoint
    is on the road if you turn left at the roundabout. It's in a waterfountain.
    
    You win the Modo Prego and can now race in Tokyo

    Tokyo is a fun city, but not as good as Paris. It has some nice shortcuts and
    some big jumps. All of the races are quite hard. But you have to remember that
    the traffic is on the left side of the road in Tokyo. Zen is really easy
    though. He rides a bike but is still the easiest racer in Tokyo. When you beat
    all of the other racers in Tokyo, you can race the Tokyo champ, Makoto. When
    you beat him, you can race the world champ... Savo.

     Red Herring 
    =============
    
    This race is too easy. It isn't really a race actually, you're by yourself and
    you have to collect three checkpoints around Tokyo, and you have a time limit.
    Go down the road in front of you and turn at the first left. Go down the
    second alley on your right. When you clear the point do a nearly 360? turn but
    this time go on the traintracks. This way is quicker and you get a nice view
    of Tokyo. Follow the track to the end and you should beat the time by 20
    seconds.
    
    ====================
     Ichiro's Challenge 
    ====================
    
    You aren't racing Shing in this race, you are racing his friend Ichiro. Start
    by going straight and taking the first left. On this road turn left at the
    second turning and keep going down the road. Turn left at the left after the
    checkpoint and now make the second right. Get the checkpoint and turn at the
    second left. Clear that checkpoint and keep speeding forwards for the next
    one. You have to smash through the bars on the left to get the next one.
    Follow this road until you get the checkpoint, turn left at it. Go around this
    weird shaped roundabout anti-clockwise and zoom through the next checkpoint.
    Go down the road with the checkpoint on it. Now, you can either jump the pile
    of dirt or go around it. You now have won your first car in Tokyo.
    
    You win the Lusso XT
    
    ===============
     The Real Deal 
    ===============
    
    Finally, you are racing Shing. You beat his little time trial and you beat
    Ichiro, time to beat him.  Start by going left a little and try to keep up
    with the pack. The first two points are on the wall of the shallow canal,
    collect them and get the one on the road. Get back on the canal and go under
    the bridge. After the next two checkpoints, the next ones on the road. Turn
    left once you've got it, rev up the road and turn left at the next point.
    
    Turn left across the bridge and now turn right. Turn right now and watch out
    for traffic and turn right again. The next checkpoint is underneath the
    freeway on the left on a road behind a little building. Turn left when you see
    a shop called Speed and get the checkpoint on that road. Turn right now and
    you should be heading south. Now turn right onto the traintracks and clear the
    checkpoint on the tracks. Get off the tracks and make sure that you land on
    the road that the checkpoint's on. Use a Nitrous and speed up the massive ramp
    that leads you over the river. When you land, go around the weird shaped
    roundabout and turn left, cut through the road and see that the next point is
    on a different road. The next point is on the same road. Turn left at the
    point and cut through a Depot, there is a massive ramp coming up and you have
    to smash through some bars to gain access to it.

    ==================
     Shibuya Scramble 
    ==================
    
    This dude took Gina's car and now she's in big trouble with the Yakuza, you
    gotta help her out. When the lights turn green that's when you go. Turn right
    and go through a series of sharp turns. Once you're on the long straightaway,
    There is a confusing bus Depot up ahead. Once you're there, you can either go
    up the little ramp which is very narrow. Or you can go under the ramp and risk
    hitting at least three busses. Whichever route you choose, get the next point
    and use the really small space on the left as a shortcut. Turn left at the
    next point and this time I would go under and through the Depot. Turn right at
    the checkpoint and quickly turn left through some glass. Go up the stairs and
    jump through the billboards.
    
    After you have discovered my little shortcut and you have landed, turn left at
    the next point and head down the alleyway in front of you and turn left. At
    the Depot, make sure that you go up the ramp on your left instead of going
    under it, you will crash and lose. When you're off the ramp, the road is a bit
    to the right, on this road you will find the next checkpoint. Immediently make
    a left through an alleyway and turn left at the weird shaped roundabout. Take
    the second left and then cut through the Depot for the next point. Keep going
    and make the second right. Keep going straight and through an alleyway, turn
    left out of it to make Ricky madder than ever.
    
    =================
     Ricky's Revenge 
    =================
    
    You beat his first race and now he wants to get his revenge, the little
    scumbag gets a head-start on this race, make sure that you beat him. If you
    start by smashing through the glass on your left you should be in the top 4
    racers in no time. Try and use your Slipstream Turbo on someone. Turn left
    after the first checkpoint and somewhere on the right is some glass. Don't
    smash through the glass; on the right is a little jump that leads over a water
    feature and to the next checkpoint. Turn right up a ramp at the next
    checkpoint and then jump off the ledge onto the road just in front. When you
    get to the end of the road turn right and take the road on the left.
    
    There is a lot of traffic around here so be sure not to crash. When you get
    the next point, on the right is an alleyway that leads straight to the next
    checkpoint. Out of this alley there is another one on the left. Once you're
    through all of the alleyways, the rest is too easy. I would suggest going over
    the Depot and smashing through the glass using up all of your Nitrous. I
    didn't notice this until Ricky said "Can you finish under thirty seconds" or
    something like that. You only have 2.30 to finish the race.

    ========
     Enigma 
    ========
    
    Haley hates guys who try and show-off to her so she's gonna do her best to
    beat you. This race is an unordered checkpoint race; there are four sets of
    four checkpoints around the Northwest side of the city. Start by collecting
    the first checkpoint on the right and try your best to cut corners on the
    grass. Once the first four are done, you need to turn one more time and down
    the road in front and turn left at the first turning. Get the checkpoint on
    this road but do not jump the stairs yet! It is very hard to land without
    slowing down. You might think you have to get it but you don't have to jump it
    yet. Turn right and then right again. Smash through the bars on the right,
    clear the point and turn right. Smash through the gate(s) in front of you and
    turn right under the traintracks and jump the stairs for the next checkpoint.
    
    On this road take the second left and turn left and make two sharp turns
    right. Now you have to make two sharp turns left and head for the checkpoint
    under the tunnel. Take the first right and turn left at the next checkpoint.
    Now you have to get on the left side of the freeway by doing a really sharp
    turn left. Clear the two points on the freeway and turn right off of the
    freeway. Get the next point, turn left and find yourself at home.
    
    ===========
     Intuition 
    ===========
    
    Traffic is quite high and the cops are out so I would use the Vortex 5 since
    it has better handling. Start by going up onto the freeway and clearing the
    point up there and coming back down again. When you've cleared the next two
    take the second right and try not to hit the pillars. On this road there is a
    fire-truck and a car accident, there is also a police car chasing the pack.
    Turn right now and make sure that you get on the left side of the small
    building on the grass.
    
    The next part of the race is set in three different alleyways that are
    connected in some way. There are loads of different ways to get to the next
    checkpoint and I'm too lazy to tell you, just turn right at it. You have to
    turn right again at the next point under the traintracks for the next point.
    When you do get to the next checkpoint again there are loads of different ways
    to get to the next one. I'll tell you my favourite way. Make the first right
    possible and turn right straightaway after the checkpoint. Go around the
    stadium area and go down the road in front. Get the next checkpoint without
    turning much and get onto the freeway. After two checkpoints you have to get
    off the freeway and cut through some grass on the right. Get the checkpoint
    and turn right onto the road with the final checkpoint on it. It is crucial
    that you do not crash here.

    =====================
     Drifters Playground 
    =====================
    
    Nikko is one of those racers that has a slow car but is a fast racer, if you
    no what I mean. He isn't a very good racer but he will never give up trying to
    beat you. At the beginning of the race when everyone slows down to get on the
    traintracks, don't slow down, just bounce off the walls. If anyone tries to
    over-take you, use the Slipstream Turbo on them. If you crash while you are
    jumping off of the tracks, turn right quickly. But if you are going fast and
    have landed well, go through the open space with the other racers.
    
    There are about five checkpoints and a series of sharp turns, this is the bit
    where I tend to lose control and crash a lot. Get past this bit well and the
    future will look bright and you're in with a chance of winning the race. Turn
    left at the next checkpoint and turn right through one of the alleys. The next
    few checkpoints are basically in a straight line. Keep going straight and turn
    left when you go on a slightly curved road and now turn right at the next one.
    After the next point the next one is quite far away. I would go to the end of
    the road and turn left twice. Turn left and get ready for a sharp turn left.
    Dodge the trees and keep going in a straight line. The orange checkpoint
    should be visible in-between two buildings. Use your Nitrous to go up the
    ramp. The Vortex 5 is the best car to use in this race since it has better
    handling than the Saikou.
    
    TIP:
    
    I just noticed when I was writing this FAQ that, if you press L2 at the
    start of the race to look behind you, You will see two Fire-trucks, an
    Ambulance and a Police car driving very fast with their sirens on. When you
    are out of the tricky bit at the beginning of the race, when you turn left and
    go down the first alleyway on the right, you will see the two Fire-trucks, the
    Ambulance and the Police car. I found it very interesting and I thought that
    I'd tell you lot about it.

    Every time you get a checkpoint you either have 20 or 15 seconds to get the
    next one. I found it is very easy, you shouldn't really be stuck on this race,
    I wasn't, that's why I'm not gonna give you directions. But I will give you
    important tips. At the start of the race use the other cars as cushions. Well,
    I mean, bounce off them for an easier turn and you should be third or fourth
    in no time. When you are turning onto the Freeway, get in front of the bus so
    you don't crash into it. Another thing to look out for is the truck that gets
    in your way. When you're off the Freeway, (the third one) you have to turn
    right into an alleyway, which's where the truck is. The rest of the race is
    behind the road, in an alleyway.

    Zen has got to be the easiest racer in Tokyo. Partly because he rides a bike
    and partly because he's crap, and he gives you easy races. You only have 1.50
    to finish the race, which is plenty of time, you should knock off at least 20
    seconds. Turn right at the second and third checkpoint and on the right side
    of the road there should be an underground tunnel. Once you're out of the
    tunnel, turn right at the next checkpoint. Turn left at the next checkpoint
    and go under the traintracks. Take the second right and turn left down an
    alleyway. The rest is easy, I'll just say that you have to make a sharp right
    turn at the last checkpoint. The very last checkpoint is underneath some
    garage place.

    This race is quite short but really hard. Start by making the second right and
    turning left. Now turn right and then left. You should be on a small high
    street. Smash through the bars on the right to get on the same road as the
    next checkpoint. Turn left at the checkpoint. Now, you can either turn left or
    right. Right and then left would be my choice since there is less chance of
    crashing. When you're through the very small and narrow alleyway make a really
    sharp right turn. Dodge the buildings and the trees and jump over the river.
    Sometimes you land on the Freeway, other times you don't, hey that's life.
    Actually, it's better if you don't land on the Freeway. Turn left through the
    grass. Now, I don't know which ways quicker here. You can either go under the
    small tunnel and taking a sharp right turn, going through a small garage
    lining you up with the finish line. Or you can turn left and go straight to
    the finishing line. I finished with a record of...1.39.95, try and beat that

    This race is easy only because your opponents have a much better car than you
    do and the traffic is really high. The whole race is basically on one straight
    road. It is kind of like the first race in the game, just a few roads with
    very minor curves. The only bit I got confused about is at the end. The final

    that goes around Tokyo.
    
    =================
     Rite of passage 
    =================
    
    You have to beat Makotos time trial, which is really fun. Start by turning
    left and then turning right onto the road. Follow this road until you are in
    line with the checkpoint. Now, don't turn left onto the road, you're gonna
    smash through some bars and head up a ramp. You don't need to use your Nitrous
    on this ramp. When you land turn left and somewhere along the road is a ramp
    on the left. It would be better if you use your Nitrous on this ramp otherwise
    you might fall in the river. Now when you land the next one is really far
    away, you can find your own way there; there isn't really a faster way, there
    all about the same. When you do get the checkpoint, Smash through the glass
    and follow the road right to the next checkpoint. I would use a Nitrous up
    this ramp but make sure that you line yourself up right. The final checkpoint
    is in sight and it is the same place as you started.
    
    ========
     Enduro
    ========
    
    Try and stay in the middle of the pack and use the Slipstream Turbo on someone
    before they use their Nitrous. Once you've cleared the first point, stay on
    the left side of the bending road so you don't crash into traffic coming the
    other direction. Continue going straight and through another bending road,
    again on the left side of the road. Get the checkpoint and get onto the
    Freeway (the right entrance) and dodge the traffic.
    
    Once the checkpoint on the Freeway has been cleared, get off on the first exit
    and take the fist left. Turn left again and go down any alleyways that you can
    see. Whichever way that you come for the next checkpoint, turn right onto the
    traintracks. Get off the tracks to the road on the right, use weight transfer
    in the air and Nitrous up the big ramp that participated in the last race.
    When you land, turn right at the weird shaped roundabout and then left. Keep
    going straight and go through the stadium area, turn right at the checkpoint.
    Ahead you have to smash through some gates into a grassy area. Turn left out
    of it. Go straight down the road in front and turn left at the end of the
    Freeway. Get the checkpoint and turn left and get to the right side of the
    road that connects to the Freeway. The next checkpoint is in-between two
    buildings but not on the Freeway.
    
    If all goes well, you should be battling with Makoto for first place. Or
    sometimes you will either be miles in front or far behind. Get the next
    checkpoint and turn left. The next checkpoint is right in front but you have
    to dodge some features to get to it. Turn right and don't crash into the wall
    that sticks out. It's hard to avoid so practice. At the next point, turn right
    up a ramp that is involved in Ricky's second race. Go down the road in front
    and now would be a good time to use your Nitrous. Go down the alleyway just a
    bit to the left. Cut the corner on the left for a small shortcut. Go through
    the road next to the bus Depot and take the second left after the Depot. Turn
    left at the next checkpoint and go down the diagonal alleyway.
    
    The next checkpoint is just in front but you have to go up the Depot ramp on
    the right to clear it. Take the road on the left and cut the corner on the
    right again. Just to the right is some glass, smash through it and follow the
    road to the checkpoint and turn right at it. Turn left and then right. Keep
    going forwards across the canal and brake through the underground barrier.
    Follow it all the way to the end and keep your balance in the air so you don't
    crash and lose at the very last second. You've now can race the world
    champion...Savo.
    
    You win the Torque JX

    Savo is the world champion. Obviously he's the best racer in the game and
    obviously he's gonna give you six real hard challenges. He's really hard to
    beat and you might be stuck on him for ages, or you could just beat him
    straight away which is very rare. He gives you six races, two in Tokyo, two in
    Paris and two in Los Angeles. The fist race will give you a real good
    taste on how the other races are going to be; meaning it's quite tough.
    You should be okay if you keep on coming back on races and never give up.
    Always explore the races before you try and win, but you will probably get 
    lost. The races are really long too which means that if you are behind, you'll 
    have plenty of time to catch up.
    
    NOTE: These six races are a lot more easier if you use the Torque JX for all 
          of them.

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    Stage I - Intake
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    This race is quite long. He sometimes counts down in another language,
    sometimes in English and other times he just says 'ready... go' so be on your
    mark. When you start, you start in the stadium area. Go straight with the pack
    and go to the left a bit and turn right down an alleyway. Follow the alleyway
    and when you can see the next checkpoint it would be a good idea to slow down.
    If you turn that corner well and you don't crash, the next thing to look out
    for the lampposts because if you crash into one of them, you will be stuck
    there forever.
    
    The checkpoint in front of you leads down to a small bending tunnel. If you're
    racing with the Torque JX, hold the left analog stick left all the way until
    you are straight again. Once you're out of the tunnel, try and use the
    Slipstream Turbo, but if you can't find anybody to use it on, don't worry and
    just turn right down the road at the next checkpoint. The next checkpoint is
    at the end of the road and the arrow is pointing right, so obviously you turn
    right. But, it is not that simple, you have to turn through the Freeway
    entrance on the left-hand side. Now you're on the Freeway, the next checkpoint
    leads you off it again.
    
    Now this bit's a bit harder, the next checkpoint leads you back on the Freeway
    but traffic is coming in the opposite direction. The second checkpoint on the
    Freeway will tell you to turn right but not off the Freeway. Ahead is a little
    hill in which you have to go down. You cannot see the cars underneath you, so
    I would go down the middle lane. You go through a tunnel now but you have to
    turn right out of it straight away.
    
    It would be easier if you slow down and go slightly to the right to turn left
    at the next checkpoint. This will make you turn in time with the rest of the
    pack, plus your car will probably be nearly blown up. Turn left at the next
    two checkpoints and the next checkpoint is under the bridge in the canal. The
    next two checkpoints are on the slanted wall on the left, but when the wall
    starts to turn, jump off onto the road and get back on the slanted wall. It
    would be a good idea to use the Nitrous here, to get far away from the pack.
    
    Make a sharp turn left and slow down to get the perfect turn under the
    Traintracks. Follow under the tracks and as soon as you get the next
    checkpoint, hit square to slow down. Go up the ramp but not too far or you'll
    fall off the tracks. Keep going straight towards the checkpoint, getting off
    the tracks at the same road as the checkpoint and make the first right
    possible, which should be a diagonal road that leads to the next point. The
    checkpoint leads onto another Freeway and change sides of the Freeway on the
    left. Be aware that you have to swap sides again to clear the next point.
    
    The next checkpoint leads you off of the Freeway for the last time (in this
    race). Cut the corner for the next right turn and go through the left side of
    the first Depot ramp for a small shortcut. Turn right at the next checkpoint
    and you can cut that corner aswell. Go down the road you are on and smash
    through the glass on the right. Make the second right turn after you've
    cleared the checkpoint and now make the second left, try to avoid smashing
    through the glass on the right here.
    
    It is the last part of the first race against Savo, and I would say that it's
    the hardest. You have to keep turning in and out of walls and garages. I could
    just do without it to be honest. I was first by miles and I crashed trying to
    go through one of the garages. Obviously I lost and I was so angry about it, I
    fell off into the river trying to ram off Savo the next time I tried it.
    Anyway, You should end up on a ramp that was used in Makoto's time trial. Use
    up all of your Nitrous on this ramp, just for the sake of it.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    Stage II - Light
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    You start off at the back of the pack so it gives you a good advantage to use
    the Slipstream Turbo. Use the Slipstream Turbo and zoom of onto the Freeway
    through the first checkpoint. Be aware that the traffic is high on the Freeway
    but don't go on two wheels because of the slight turn. Clear the point that
    leads off the Freeway and turn at the third right and cut through the Depot.
    Head straight towards the next checkpoint, cutting through the Depot again.
    Use your handbrake and slow down to avoid crashing and the other racers coming
    the other way.
    
    There are two checkpoints on the Freeway before you go under a tunnel. Get out
    of the tunnel at the first exit on the left. When you're outside, you go round
    in a circle, which means that you have to turn right at every checkpoint,
    except for the first one. When you are facing two underground tunnels, take
    the left one because the right one is the one that you came out of.
    
    You might want to use up a Nitrous at the end of the tunnel. You will know
    when you are getting off the Freeway because the checkpoint is on the exit.
    Clear the point n the bending road and there is an alleyway on the right when
    the bend turns straight. Go down the road on the left and go through another
    alleyway that is also on the right. The next point leads onto the Freeway,
    when you're out of the Freeway, turn left and slow down to make an easy right
    turn to the next point that leads to another Freeway.
    
    The checkpoints are easy on the Freeway, the only problem is that the traffic
    is coming in the opposite direction. Cut through the grass and get on the
    right side of the furthest away buildings. Dodge the trees and turn left at
    the checkpoint. The next checkpoint is just down the road and it leads onto a
    Freeway, again.
    
    Turn left once you're off the Freeway and turn left again at the second
    checkpoint on the road. Don't turn left again, instead turn down the alleyway
    just to the left. Clear the point in front of you and go through that very
    small and narrow tunnel with yellow and black stripes around it. Smash through
    the glass in front of you and jump up a series of stairs and ramps, using
    weight transfer at it's best.
    
    Found out a little fact about this race and I just thought that I'd tell you
    lot about it. You only have 5.30 to finish the race in. It's way too much time
    to finish the race in so I wouldn't worry about it that much.

    Savo - Paris
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    Stage III - Burn
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    This Race is in Paris and there are four checkpoints that are spread out in
    the Four Corners of the city. It is an unordered checkpoint race, which makes
    it really hard because there are so many different routes to take. I'm only
    going to tell my favourite route and what I think is quicker than any other
    route.
    
    I think that you should start by turning right with Savo and turning at the
    fourth left. But you might find it quicker to go straight, turn right at the
    pyramid thing and head underground. Whatever way you go, you should notice
    that the checkpoint is on the grass behind the cathedral. There is a road
    behind the checkpoint, turn left on the road and straight in front of you is
    some bars that lead to a jump over the river.
    
    Do not use your Nitrous on the jump or you will fly off course. Anyway, you
    should land in a gap in-between the walls. Go through the alleyway on your
    left and go right up that huge red ramp that you go up in Blogs second race.
    When you land and have got off of the wooden floorboards, try not to crash
    into the car that is coming in the other direction. Head down the road on the
    right once you're out of the set of alleyways. Follow this road until it
    starts to bend. When you turn left make the first right. Follow this road and
    turn left cutting through the grass just a tiny bit. Go up the stairs for the
    next checkpoint.
    
    When you're up the steps, go down the road on the left and then turn right
    down a bumpy road. When you reach the roundabout, go down the road on the
    right. Now slow down and turn left onto the Freeway. The checkpoint is on both
    sides of the Freeway but stay on your side, it will save time. Follow the road
    and turn into the first gas station you can find. This turn is quite sharp and
    you have to avoid hitting the gas tanks which makes it even harder. Now go up
    the ramp slowly so that you can go down the alleyway on the right without
    hitting the pole. At the end of the alleyway, turn right. Turn left now and go
    through the alleyway on the right.
    
    After the alleyway there is a ramp behind some trees which you might have
    jumped on Parfaits race. It's fine on Parfaits race but on this one it gets on
    my nerves. If you go too fast, you fall in the river and if you go too slowly,
    you fall in the river. Anyway, once you've cleared the point, get onto the
    road and turn right twice. Take the third left, first right and first left.
    You will find the finish line on the grass and racers will be coming from all
    different directions. So use up all of your Nitrous to guarantee first place
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    Stage IV - Turbo
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    This is the last race you will have in Paris, so of course it will be fun. It
    takes you around the city and shows you nearly all of the jumps and alleyways
    in Paris. It is a long long race with loads of sharp turns. the Torque JX
    would be the better car to choose from, since you don't lose control on sharp
    corners like the Saikou XS.
    
    Get a good start by not letting the racers behind you barge you into the big
    wheel. Once you're through the wheel and onto the main road, now would be a
    good time use your Slipstream Turbo. The first checkpoint is in the middle of
    the arches, clear it and go to the road on the left. After you go up the hill,
    you will notice a building on the grass on your left, it will probably look
    familiar to you. Anyway, Go into the building with all of the other racers. I
    usually crash here, so make sure you don't if you want to win the race. You
    will be facing a ramp, jump it (use weight transfer) and if you land well,
    there will be another ramp waiting for you.
    
    Well, you should land in a park with a lot of trees, don't turn onto the road
    yet. Turn left off the park with the other racers. When you are turning left
    onto the road, make sure that you avoid the bus on the right lane. Stay on the
    left lane, if anything, drive on the pavement. There are a lot of buses on
    this road so you might want to pop-up on two-wheels. Turn right at the next
    checkpoint. This bit is tough. I'm not sure at all which way is quicker here,
    so choose the way best for you.
    
    1) You can either keep going along the road without turning and jump the
    pyramid jump. (on the way to the jump a bus sometimes turns into you and it
    will slow you down big time) When you land you have to go through some
    alleyways with sharp turns.
    
    2) Or you can make the first right and take the next two lefts (not through
    the arches), not turning right at the checkpoint.
    
    The next checkpoint is on a road (turn right at if you are coming out of the
    alleyways and keep going straight if you're coming the other way) that leads
    down an alleyway that contains the next checkpoint. Go up the ramp and you
    will see that the checkpoint is on the left side of the building. Clear the
    point and make your way through a red tunnel. A jump is coming up but do not
    boost because you'll fly off course. Make your way through the cathedral and
    turn left as soon as you're out of it.
    
    Head down the road left of the checkpoint and jump the river. Clear the point
    in the alleyway and head down the road on the left. At the roundabout, you
    should be able to see that the next checkpoint (on the right) is behind a
    ramp. It wouldn't be a great idea to jump it because you will probably crash.
    Go around the right side of it instead. Turn right at the next checkpoint the
    traffic is very high on this road, even worse it's coming in the opposite
    direction.
    
    Turn right at the next checkpoint and now make another right. The next
    checkpoint is leading up a ramp into a building. Follow through the building
    and turn left. The next checkpoint is on the ramp but it is really hard to
    see. Turn right at the checkpoint on the road and the next checkpoint is in an
    alleyway in front of you. You now have to go up the ramp you went up before
    but this time, the checkpoint is on the right side of the building. Once
    you're through it, you should land on some rooftops. You should find the next
    checkpoint behind a small ramp, jump it. Use weight transfer on this one
    because you might fall in the river.
    
    Ending the last race of Paris, find the next checkpoint, jump the river, land
    through the arches, go up the bumpy road on the right, clear the checkpoint
    and finally use up all of your Nitrous to get to the finish line. There you
    have it, the last race of the best city is over. Just to go a little further,
    try and beat my best time of 3.47. time to move on to Los Angeles.

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    Stage V - Traction
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    This is an unordered checkpoint race with a lot of sharp turns. And to make it
    even harder, it's raining, that means that the road is slippery to. There are
    about a million different routes to take to win this race. It will take
    forever for me to tell you all of them. Therefore I am only going to tell you
    the way that I beat the race in.
    
    Start with a Slipstream Turbo to take an early lead and turn right onto the
    freeway (the first one you come to). Follow the Freeway until you clear the
    second point, turn right onto a circular road. Straight after you clear the
    next point, make a real sharp turn right onto another circular road. You are
    on the wrong side of the road now but it doesn't matter. Exit the Freeway the
    first chance you get and turn left.
    
    Now, clear the point in front of you and make the second left, use your
    handbrake on this turn so that you don't fall in the Dam. Make the next two
    left turns and the next checkpoint is on the same road. After you have crossed
    the bridge, make the second right and smash through the glass to cut the
    corner.
    
    Follow this road until you have to jump the Dam (use weight transfer). When
    you land, make the first left once you've cleared the checkpoint and make the
    first left again. Turn right now and try not to fall into the Dam. Make the
    next two right turns and now turn left. Clear the point and go to the very end
    of the road and make a left onto the Freeway. Get off the Freeway as soon as
    you can. Turn left once you're off of it and head down the alleyway in front
    of you. Turn left once you're out of it.
    
    Make the first left and you should hear some sirens coming from behind you,
    ignore them, don't panic. Turn left and then right now. You're on a long road
    now so you might want to use up a Nitrous. Avoid traffic on this road and keep
    control of your car. You might want to practice going through this road a
    couple of times. Turn right with the other racers and make the first left. The
    next checkpoint is right in front of you, but you have to jump down to get it.
    Once you have got it, head up the hill on your left.
    
    Once you have gone up the hill and have cleared the checkpoint, somewhere on
    the right is a diagonal road, use your Nitrous here. Clear the point in front
    of you and try not to cut through the grass because you might crash into the
    rocks. Just keep to the main roads and play it safe. The rest is easy. You
    just have to make a series of left turns and the finish line is in a car park.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Stage VI - Apex
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    
    Ok, the last race of the game, you're finally there, no point of giving up now
    is there, just one more race...Apex. Come to think of it, this race is quite
    easy, just long. It took me 6.41 to finally beat the champ, but I lost once
    with a time of 6.29.
    
    Zoom out of the car park and turn left with the other racers. Somewhere along
    the right, past the pillars is an alleyway that leads directly to the first
    checkpoint. Head straight down the road on your left and now you have to go in
    and out of trees for five checkpoints. Take the second right once the tree bit
    is done and try not to crash into the trees on the side of the road. Head
    right at the checkpoint and onto the snake road.
    
    Turn right as soon as you clear the point on the snake road. On the right is a
    building, some grass and some trees. Ignore the other racers here and just
    head straight to the building instead of going around the trees with the other
    racers. Turn left as soon as you clear the checkpoint and zoom down the road
    on the right. Along the road that you are on is the next checkpoint, when you
    clear it, on the right is the same car park that you started in. now instead
    of following the route that you went before, on the top right corner of the
    car park is a huge pillar. Get on the right side of it and smash through the
    glass on your left.
    
    After you're through the glass keep going straight and the next checkpoint is
    on the left. Turn right at it and make the next first right. Turn left at the
    next checkpoint and turn left again. Slow down here and turn right down an
    alleyway with loads of satellite things. Turn left at the next checkpoint and
    make your way to the airport terminal with the other racers. Instead of going
    to the higher level of the terminal, you're going to stay on the same floor.
    
    When you turn to get to the checkpoint, use your handbrake and try and fit in
    one of the gaps between the pillars. Do this because the checkpoint is in the
    middle of the pillars. Turn left again and make your way out of the terminal.
    
    Make the first right and then take the first left. Cut through the car park in
    front of you and the next checkpoint is right in front of you. Make the second
    left and cut through the alleyway on your right. Turn right when you clear the
    next checkpoint and head through another car park. Smash through the glass in
    front of you and slow down because you have to make a sharp left turn. Follow
    this road and turn right at the next checkpoint. Now, jump into the Dam to
    clear the next checkpoint. Follow the Dam until you notice two massive pillars
    holding up a bridge, turn right through a hole in the pillar. This bit was
    used at the end of Dice's first race.
    
    Clear the point in the tunnel and, if you make the second left there will be
    some stairs on the left. Jump them and head down the road on your right. Turn
    left at the next checkpoint and then take the second left. Follow the road.
    When you reach the next checkpoint keep following the road and turn right onto
    the Freeway. The traffic should be going in your direction now. Clear the
    first checkpoint on the Freeway and turn right onto a circular road.
    
    Keep following the Freeway and when you see that the next checkpoint is on top
    of you, turn right onto another circular road. Clear the next checkpoint and
    change sides of the Freeway and head onto another circular road. Now follow
    the Freeway until it dies into a road. Now make the first right and turn right
    again onto the grass. It's not over yet, keep it focused. Get onto the road
    and make the fourth left. Make the first right and use up one of you Nitrous.
    You should find the finish line easily. It's in the gas station. Let's make
    some fireworks.
    
    You win the Veloci, you beat the world champion, and now have the
    appreciation, attention and respect that you well deserve.

    Seriously, this game would be nothing without a multiplayer mode. This is 
    probably my favourite part of the game other than career mode. You can play 
    with your friends against each other, you can work as a team, and you can even 
    race against each other. This section will just give you a brief description 
    of the different multiplayer modes in MC2, so I hope it helps.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Cruise
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    In cruise mode you can just drive around the city of your choice and just muck
    about with your mates. You have limited time. You can try playing tag if you
    want to, but it's not that fun. Just relax, go mad on the jumps, find
    shortcuts for races or go on a rampage. This mode is most used when you want 
    to show someone to Midnight Club II. You don't have to do anything in cruise, 
    so just knock yourself out.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Battle
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This is my favourite setting. You can choose two different types of Battle.
    Capture the Flag or Detonate. You can also choose a map. Imperial Palace,
    Shibuya, Wharf or Full.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Capture the Flag
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Basically, on this one, all you have to do is find the flag on your Radar and
    bring it back to the checkpoint. If someone other than you has the flag, you
    just have to crash into them a couple of times so that they drop it. Then you
    can pick it up again. But if you have it and you crash into a wall, sometimes
    you drop it. You can also pick up weapons around the city, like Stealth. When
    you press L3, you fire your weapon.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Detonate
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Detonate is just like Capture the flag, only that you carry a bomb instead of
    a flag. But the difference is that instead of dropping the bomb, you blow it
    up.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Race Editor
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    If you go to Race Editor mode, you can make up your own race. You can also
    choose other things aswell, like: The time of day, weather, pedestrians,
    opponent cars and other things like that. But if you choose Race Editor in
    arcade mode, you can play the races that you created yourself.
    
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Career
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    In Career mode you just replay the races that you played when you were trying
    to complete the game. The difference is that you can play with your friends.

    The game was made for car racing. Obviously, you need them to win races. I'm

    who you win the cars off of.
    
    NOTE: The statistics to the vehicles were made up by me. The description

    This is the best car in the game so far. It has good handling abilities and
    quite a good top speed. The one thing that really lets it down is the
    acceleration and the weight. It takes ages to reach 100mph, even with a
    Nitrous.

    This car is a Lotus Elise. It sure does look like it, but it has completely
    different status. For example: The Lotus Elises acceleration is amazing, but
    the Alarade's acceleration is quite poor (compared to the Lotus Elise). It is
    a good car overall, but apart from the acceleration it's not a bad car.
    Although, it is a very light car, meaning that it is sensitive to hits, which
    might cause it to go off course a little bit sometimes.

    I personally hate this car, I think of it as a huge heap of junk. It is really

    acceleration, you would expect it to have a good top speed. Well, this car
    doesn't.

    This car is an underground racer. It has the best handling abilities in Paris,
    so it is a good choice for races in tight, twisty places. Its top speed is

    bad choice for races on highways and long, straight courses.

    This is the car you win from beating the Paris champ. It has an excellent top

    car to use in Paris, but when you enter the Tokyo races, this car will feel
    like a Cocotte. The good thing about this car is the amount of Nitrous' it 
    has. This is the first car in the game with three Nitrouses.

    THANKS TO MINESWEEPER FOR PARTS OF THIS SECTION!
    
    =-------=
    + Moses +
    =-------=
    
    Moses is your very first opponent in the game. He is quite large with a big 
    head. He is quite a nice guy, as he welcomes new street racers. He is not a 
    very good racer himself, but somehow he uses that to his advantage. He will be 
    your friend and guide throughout the guide.
    
    =--------=
    + Steven +
    =--------=
    
    Steven is not a very good racer either, and he is the second racer you meat. 
    He is more of a technical driver, meaning that he concentrates too much on the 
    cars engine and stuff like that. Because he is so clever and knows all about 
    cars, he gets himself into a lot of trouble with the more advanced street 
    racers. He talks mostly about his part of the car in a technical kind of way, 
    so it's really hard for any of us to follow.
    
    =-------=
    + Maria +
    =-------=
    
    Maria is a really loud and competitive racer. She always tries to get in 
    first, and she looks for speed in a car, and she doesn't care about anything 
    else. She has an older brother though, called Hector, who is very protective 
    over her. He is also another racer you get to meat in the game. 
    
    =-------=
    + Angel +
    =-------=
    
    This guy thinks that he is the best and he can do whatever he can, just 
    because his dad is some famous guy in Hollywood. His name doesn't suit him at 
    all because he tries to cheat a lot. Instead of trying to win, he concentrates 
    a lot on cheating and knocking other cars off the road. 
    
    =-------=
    + Diego +
    =-------=
    
    This guy is Angel's dad. He is some famous guy who works on movies in 
    Hollywood. But when he is not working or enjoying his fame, he likes to race a 
    lot. He has his old classic muscle car which he likes a lot and has never lost 
    a race without it. He used to be a really good and well known street racer, 
    but then he realised that it is too dangerous and risky, so he took it up as a 
    part-time jobb. 
    
    =------=
    + Gina +
    =------=
    
    Gina is probably one of the main characters in the game. She is your fanclub, 
    and she follows you once you're out of Los Angeles. She gives you a lot of 
    helpful tips throughout the game, but she is really annoying sometimes. She is 
    always in trouble, and she relies too much on you to get her out of it. She 
    does play a big part in the game, and you can either like her, or hate her, 
    she's that type of character.
    
    =--------=
    + Hector +
    =--------=
    
    Hector is Maria's older brother, and he has a very short temper. He gets angry 
    when he loses, and he's really built. He will tear you into pieces if you take 
    the piss out of him, so try not to.
    
    =------=
    + Dice +
    =------=
    
    Dice is the champion of Los Angeles. He acts like he's really cool and tough 
    when he probably is but he shows off too much. He has the biggest reputation 
    in L.A and his face is on the front cover of the game, I'm sure that that 
    means something.
    
    =------=
    + Blog +
    =------=
    
    Blog is the first racer you meat in Paris. He is not a very good racer, but he 
    works quite hard at it. He comes from London in England, and he is a DJ of 
    some kind. He's usually out drinking when he's not drunk.
    
    =---------------=
    + Jewel & Julie +
    =---------------=
    
    Jewel and Julie are sisters, and they are one of your best opponents in Paris. 
    They have both grown up together in Paris since they were little, so they know 
    the place quite well. They used to be dual racers, but they were too good at 
    that so they moved onto street racing. Julie is the kind of girl that likes to 
    flirt with the other racers to put them off a bit, but all Jewel cares about 
    is winning the race.
    
    =-------=
    + Primo +
    =-------=
    
    Primo is the most annoying person in the game. He used to be an F1 racer, but 
    he wasn't good enough at that, so he gave up, and moved down to street racing 
    for some more excitment. He has this really stupid Itallian accent which can 
    get on your nerves a lot because it is so bad. He will give you some stupid 
    insults, but don't let him put you off your racing.
    
    =----------=
    + Stephane +
    =----------=
    
    Stephane has lived in Paris all his life, and he knows everything about the 
    roads and he is very familiar with shortcuts. He uses this to his advantage. 
    He has this crap annoying French accent which is bad but not as bad as Primos. 
    He doesn't like this new idea of foreign racers coming into Paris and beating 
    him.
    
    =-----=
    + Ian +
    =-----=
    
    Ian is not really a serious racer, he just does it for some extra cash. He 
    comes from Australia, and for some reason he chose Paris. He is a Motorcycle 
    expert, and he leads the Motorcycle gang in Paris. He likes racing to show off 
    to his friends. He is not a bad racer, he just doesn't like it that much. I'm 
    sure if he spent some more time on racing, He'll be a much better and popular 
    racer. 
    
    =-------=
    + Farid +
    =-------=
    
    Farid comes from Algeria. He came to Paris because he is on the run from the 
    cops. He must of done somethin wrong because he wants to keep his low profile. 
    Farid is quite literally and underground street racer, as all his races are in 
    the catacomes, because he wants to keep a low profile. He'll turn his back on 
    you somewhere through the game, because he uses you to get the cops out of the 
    way.
    
    =------=
    + Owen +
    =------=
    
    Inspector Owen is after Farid. He is a posh, old rich guy from England, you 
    can tell from his voice. He is after some documents of Farid, and they are in 
    the car that you won from Farid. This is the weird part. Instead of arresting 
    you and getting the files, he wants to race you and risk losing the files. 
    Sound like an inspector?
    
    =---------=
    + Parfait +
    =---------=
    
    Parfait is the Paris champion. She used to be a fashion model, but now she has 
    grown older and lost her looks and her fans. She decided to take up street 
    racing as her full-time job, because she new that she would never be as pretty 
    as she was before, and never get them European contract deals. She just hates 
    people who try and challenge her, because she thinks that there only racing 
    her to get a sneak look on her.
    
    =-------=
    + Ricky +
    =-------=
    
    Ricky got Gina into a lot of trouble with the Yakuza because she took a job at 
    his club, and she challenged him to a race. He took away the Vortex 5 that you 
    gave her from Primo, and she is in serious trouble with the Yakuza. She needs 
    you to get her out of trouble.
    
    =-------=
    + Shing +
    =-------=
    
    Shing is a dick head. He owns a lot of money because he comes from a rich 
    backround. He acts like he is from the ghetto for some reason when he's not, 
    and he tries to act real tough. He hates newcomers, and he doesn't care if 
    they are the champions of two districts. He wants you to beat a time trial and 
    his friend Ichiro before he races you. I think that he does this because he's 
    so scared of losing his cars, money, and chicks.
    
    =--------=
    + Ichiro +
    =--------=
    
    Ichiro is Shing's racing partner, and he is just as bad as Shing. You never 
    hear him speak because he's not really a popular guy in Tokyo, and he's scared 
    of losing Shing's money. He doesn't really like the way that Shing uses his 
    money, so he just gives up after a while.
    
    =-------=
    + Haley +
    =-------=
    
    Haley has grown up in America somewhere, but she didn't really like the racing 
    cars and rules, so she came over to Tokyo to show off her skills. She really 
    hates guys who try and show off in front of her, and she really loves beating 
    them in races. She owns a really nice ride, which makes you wanna beat her 
    that much more. She is quite an aggresive racer, so expect to be pushed 
    around.
    
    =-------=
    + Nikko +
    =-------=
    
    Nikko is the most annoying racer in the game. He has these dreams of one day 
    being the best street racer in the game, which is nearly impossible because
    he's so bad. He has this horrible fashion sense, with this annoying voice. It 
    is actually quite funny the way he dresses.
    
    =-----=
    + Zen +
    =-----=
    
    Zen talks so much like a samurai which is really annoying because he's a 
    racer. He takes racing very seriously, with a lot of serious practise. He has 
    amazing skills with the Motorcycle, and he owns the Motorcycle gang in Tokyo. 
    
    =----------=
    + Ken'ichi +
    =----------=
    
    Ken'ichi is one of the main heads in the Yakuza gang. He is one who is 
    involved in Gina's problem with the Yakuza, so you will have to deal with him 
    to help Gina. You should not screw around with this guy, because he has this 
    habbit of getting his men to kill people. He will only respect you if you play 
    by the rules, and win fairly. 
    
    =--------=
    + Makoto +
    =--------=
    
    Makoto is a buisnessman in Tokyo, and he earns a lot of money. He uses his 
    money on expensive cars, so with that money, he is able to beat all of the 
    skilled racers in Tokyo. He's only really interested in how skilled you are. 
    He doesn't really care if he loses because he has enough respect and he knows 
    theracing is not his thing. 
    
    =------=
    + Savo +
    =------=
    
    Savo is the world champion of the Midnight Club.  Nobody has been able to beat
    him, but Savo really wishes somebody would because he's sick of being the
    champ.  Expect to spend quite a bit of time with him once you reach him, since
    he has six excruciatingly difficult races for you.  He will also 
    affectionately call you "asswipe" all the time.  Both of these factors tend to 
    cause losses of sanity while you race him.

    10.0 FAQ ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    +*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*
    
    This is just a list of all the most frequently asked questiones in Midnight 
    Club II. More questiones will be added whenever I get Emails. Please read this 
    section first before you send me an Email.
    
    =============================
    
    Q: I loved the two Midnight Club games, will there ever be a Midnight Club 3? 
    
    A: Well, I'm pretty sure there will be. It will be called: "Midnight Club 3: 
    DUB Edition". I don't know much about it, but I'm sure if you visit the 
    message boards at GameFAQs, you'll find out all you need to know about the 
    upcoming Midnight Club.
    
    =============================
    
    Q: How do I get 100% completion? I beat all six of Savo's races, but I still 
    don't have 100%! What's wrong?
    
    A: Nothing's wrong. To get 100%, you need to beat every race in career mode, 
    then you have to beat all the circut races in arcade mode. It is easier if you 
    try the circut races once you have beat career mode first because nothing is 
    better than your sweet Veloci...
    
    =============================
    
    Q: Where is the circut walkthrough in your FAQ?
    
    A: Well, as I said somewhere earlier in the FAQ, I have never owned Midnight 
    Club II, and I don't plan to. My friend agreed to lend me this game until I 
    completed this guide, but this game was a lot longer than we both expected, 
    so I decided not to write the arcade circuts. If anyone has an arcade circut 
    walkthrough, please tell me because I do not ownthis game.
    
    =============================
    
    Q: It says in your vehicle list that there are cop cars. How do I unlock the 
    cop cars?
    
    A: There are simply three cop cars; LA Cop, Paris Cop and Tokyo Cop. To unlock 
    a cop car, simply beat all the arcade circuts in that city. So, if you want 
    the LA Cop Car, simply beat all the arcade circuts in LA.
    
    =============================
    
    Q: When I beat a racer, I start in the middle of the city I'm on. It says on 
    my map that there are one or two street racers. When I drive to one of the 
    racers, they won't race me. What am I doing wrong?
    
    A: You don't just drive up to a street racer and expect them to know that 
    you're one of them, can you? Anyway, when you find a street racer, just press 
    L3 to flash your lights at them, and then follow them to where they want to 
    race you.
    
    =============================
    
    That's all the frequently asked questiones I have so far. If I have missed any 
    out, please tell me and I will add them as soon as possible.
