When entering a race, players are presented with the Race Conditions like weather and track conditions. Players select a Car and Driver to race with, and then select from several options that make up their Race Strategy. The race then happens in the background. Results of the race are determined 20% by the Driver, 29% by the Car, and 51% by how well each racer's Race Strategy plays out. Cars with higher XP and upgrades have an advantage in the race.
