Wrench’s Facts: Practice Makes Perfect

Very few drivers are born with the natural gift of driving and even the best knows the importance of practicing in order to keep their skills sharp.  During your down time in between races, it is crucial to stay on top of your game by enhancing your strengths while improving upon your weaknesses.  Luckily, there are two practice modes that can help you address whatever needs you have.

Single Race
Just as the name suggests, this type of practice pits you in a traditional race setting as you compete against others.  Like races at the Racing Circuit, practice can be summed up in two rules: 1) leave your opponents behind in your dust and 2) dust or be dusted.  As you work on your driving technique and learn the details of various tracks, you must also focus on dodging incoming fire while using your own weapons to clear the way to victory.

In Time Attack, you get the entire racetrack to yourself as your only opponent is the clock.  Speed to each checkpoint before time runs out and see a breakdown of each leg of the race along with your total time once you finish.  This mode is a great way to see which parts of the track you excel at while identifying others that need improvement.  Use this opportunity to find shortcuts, speed boosts, and gain an unparalleled understanding of each track’s unique design.  The combination of speed, handling, and knowledge that you attain from this mode will baffle your rivals as they watch you speed off into the distance.
