===============================================================================
                                                                               
First thing's first, qualifying. If you have auto qualify on, you will 
automatically start in the middle of the pack. If you qualify yourself, your 
starting position is based on how well you do. This is where the skill comes 
in. You need to be really good to qualify in the front row, as opposed to auto 
qualifying in the middle. 
                                                                               
One of the most important things in starting a race is to select your 
transmission. A manual requires more focus and skill but rewards you with a 
higher top speed. The automatic does not require you to shift manually but it's 
top speed is lower. I suggest an automatic for the road courses since there's a 
lot of shifting. You should use an automatic for the triovals since once you 
reach your fourth gear, you won't have to shift again.
                                                                               
Now when you actually start to race, there is a few tips and tricks you will 
need to learn. One of the most important thing to do is drafting. Just get 
right behind another car and you will avoid the air flow a bit more. This will 
allow you to go faster. When you get right on the car's bumper, you could 
slingshot to the left. Just pull into the inside and you should have enough 
speed to pass him easily.
                                                                               
Passing can be fairly difficult at times. I suggest always going to the inside, 
or to the left, of the car you are trying to pass. Try not to do this on a 
straightaway unless you are attempting the slingshot maneuver. I suggest trying 
to pass them while entering or exiting a turn. 
                                                                               
Driving the line will make you be the fastest car on the track. What this is, 
is the quickest route around the track. You want to stay on the outside of the 
track while entering the turn, go in to the inside during the turn, and go back 
to the outside exiting the turn. This should all be done in one smooth motion 
to be the most successful. If you screw up and go in too much while exiting, 
just keep going straight, it's not worth it to try to correct yourself that 
late.
                                                                               
Pitting can be incredibly important too. In longer races you need to pit for 
fresh tires and more gas. Try to pit during the caution flags so you don't lose 
any track position. If you pit during the green flag and you don't have a clean 
pit, you could lose a lot of track positions. I suggesting trying to set up 
your car in practice mode until you find a set up that works. This will save 
you precious time in the actual races.
