Off Road Races

Canyon Cliffs

Location Prize
Raton Pass, North Chumash 500

As with all racing, if you press the accelerate button just as the race begins, you will gain a super speed boost which will allow you to jump ahead of your competitors. During these races, it also has the added benefit of sometimes sending an opponent flying off their vehicles before they’ve even got going!

From the start, keep right behind the group up until the first big corner. From there, cut up the inside and across the others. This will allow you to get out in front of them and open up a gap. The route itself is relatively straightforward with a few bumps and tight turns but nothing too taxing.

Use this hill to really build up speed and get ahead of the orher racers.

For the most part, you can keep at full pace during the race. There is a steep incline you must climb, so lean forward to generate more pace up there. Use the descent to open a wider gap on your opponents and really pick up speed. Be careful of hitting the bumps too much and if you do, keep straight or you could end up clattering into a large rock.

If you manage to stay on your vehicle you should complete this race with few problems.
