And here we are at the final race. You will need a fast motorbike for this and you will be racing around the Vespucci beach area. There are quite a few tricky areas in this race and being on a bike, if you crash it, can spell disaster for the rest of the race or even kill you so keep your focus!

If you boost at the beginning you can probably cause a little bit of chaos to some of the other riders. They inevitably smash into each other so just be careful. It helps if your bike has full armour so if you do hit them, chances are you’ll come off better than they will.

Follow the road around until you hit the first major turn. Use Franklin’s special if you want to cut the corner and still make the checkpoint. If not, take a wide angle on your approach or you could end up flying right past the checkpoint.

You can easily miss this checkpoint unless you take a wide angle or use Franklin's ability (left). This avenue is pretty hard to pass through at high speed. Stay on the left to avoid the trees (right).

There is a nice little straight where you can pick up a little speed but don’t go too fast as another tight corner is just ahead. Coming out of that turn, you can really accelerate and literally fly over the kinks in the road. You can get some serious air along this stretch but do be aware that you will enter a very narrow street at the top.

Use Franklin’s ability or slow up to negotiate this section. It is very easy to veer off course a little and smack straight into a tree so keep it straight and steady.

At the top of the street, you will do another couple of tight turns leading back out onto the main road. Pick up the pace here but keep an eye out for another couple of corners. Be very careful as you come back to start the second lap because of the two bridges. Hitting those at the wrong angle at speed could cost you the race.
