Unhappy Tips for race 7?

hi, I've gotten every single achievement in the game except completing race 7 (and completing all races). every time i try it there are a million cars on the little thin winding road and if i try passing on the dirt i end up hitting a rock and my car flys off the cliff, i tried using the gyro copter but when i position myself behind the starting line the guy yells that I'm brave and the countdown never starts, any tips to doing this race because I'm hungry for my first 1k game

i ended up using a motorcycle for it, you can dodge the cars. you have to be careful to stay on road most of the time because if you hit something and go flying off, you lose and must restart.

I used the agency jeep (the hummer looking thing). It can take a beating and pretty much run people off the road if you run into them. That way you don't have to worry as much about dodging stuff (though the more you dodge the quicker you'll go). I too found this to be the hardest race in the game. Good luck.

Thankyou, post above me

Yes!!! That video and you guys' help got it for me. But remember to slow down and get below the white arrow, at checkpoints.

It should be added in the guide; it is the easiest way.

heh wow!

I probably spent like 2 hours trying this race with diffirent cars.

I never knew it was possible to do with the Gyro having tried...

Excellent wee video that will help you get it done with 40 seconds to spare

Adding this to the guide would be a great addition.

I found it pretty easy to do with the 4X4 thingy at the Agency Base directly near the race starting line. t can take a few hits and even if you go rolling, you can't fall out and it usually gets back on it's wheels quickly.

First race I attempted in the game, glad to hear the others are easier.
