You are a rookie racer that want to be known in the world of racing. All you got right now is your dream and determination. You don't have the money to buy a fast car as your car is one of the oldest and slowest in the race. But, you can't complain about it since you are just starting out. Complaining won't do you any good as you would just feel sad and you can't do anything about it, at least for now. You would need to do your best and hope for the best. The prize money will be your chance to upgrade, so the situation is a do or die situation.
Drive your car as fast as you can till you reach the finish line. Make sure that you won't hit anything along the road as that would be a hindrance for you and might be the reason you lose the race. You have three booster, which you can use to speed up your car for quite a bit. use it wisely as you can only refill it once the race is over. Remember that you need to get at least the third position for you to advance to the next level.
