Grand Theft Auto V

Mineward Spiral

Davis Quartz, Grand Senora Desert 500

This mission is only available at night between 20:00 and 03:00 so make sure to only travel over there during those times.

The race takes place in and around a mine with lots of twists and turns and being at night, it adds to the risk. Luckily using a dirt bike or ATV makes the corners easier than in the truck and you won’t go sliding off an edge the same.

You can get ahead of the competition after the first couple of corners if you cut up the inside. Send a few of ‘em flying if you can too! There are a ton of turns on this course so keep your speed down quite a bit and just take the corners easy. Your rivals will take an age to steer around them so don’t worry too much about them, just focus on not falling off or coming off the course.

This corner in particular requires Franklin’s special if you want a good time and to make the checkpoint.

There are a couple of really tight turns about 30 seconds in so if you use Franklin’s special around these, you can get really far ahead of the other competitors. Keep your eye on the radar so you can see where the next checkpoint comes as there a couple of forks in the road that may cause confusion. You should be able to come in first and make good time if all goes well.
