    There are three races. The first is indy and gives 43 610 for gold. Second is Special Stage Route 7 and gives 42 500. The last one is Special Stage Route X aka the speed test, and gives 43 890 for gold. This last one is probably the best race for money grinding, as it is super simple and takes about four minutes with a decent car. Can make a few million in a few hours here.

    How many laps for each race? I know Route X is one lap only, based on what chryzsh said "takes about four minutes"...

    And what is the PP limit for the event?

    The cheapest option is probably to get your Mercedes-Benz VGT (which is a free gift) and fully tune it.

    I did the special stage tracks (the second and third races) with a fully pumped Nissan gtr 2012 black edition.
    About 90,000 I think and will easily get you the win. At indy though, you could have your hands full.

    Any reasonable tuned car will win you the World Circuits Tour around Ascari, which pays out 139,000 at 200% login bonus for 4 laps :D

    Of course 3 laps around Brands hatch in the loaner RB Jr pays 177k so.....

    As for the like the wind if you want to save money the Mercedes VGT is the car to use. It is free, you just need to to add a few parts and crank the top speed up as far as it goes to make it into a rocket. It will easily smoke the field on the SSX race and can easily win the others as well.

    Go to Vision GT on the main screen, select Mercedes-Benz and then hit Accept as Gift.

    To the OP if you want to buy a car for the last two races then the ZZII is actually the cheaper option at 60k. Better value than the GT-R and can be used in a lot of other races besides that one.

    But definitely get the Merc if you haven't already. After the first time you need to pay 1 million, so you'll know if you've claimed it already.

    For Indianapolis I used Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6) LM Race Car, and the other two tracks I won with Nissan Option Stream Z. :)

    SRT Charger, fully tuned. Gotta work the draft, but awesome to blow past those LMPs with a 4-door.

    Why would you use a Tank Car? :lol: Try a fully tuned Nissan GT-R R35 Black Edition and see what happens.

    Get the Veyron for example. Easy. It's the fastest car in the game in top speed (besides the Red Bulls)

    @doodlemonoply I think he's talking about the Toronado.

    The Tank Car? Did you think it was a good idea, or are you feeling adventurous? :lol:

    If I remember correctly, I used the Veyron for Daytona and HSR, and the Sauber for Indy. Easy wins.

    I assume he is using the Tornado and not the tank car. If its maxing out just buy the customizable transmission and set the top speed to 311 or whatever the highest value is. If you haven't already, make sure all power upgrades are made along with an oil change.

    The Mercedes VGT can easily go over 300 MPH with NOS

    Yeah, the Merc VGT is the cheapest option for these.

    Veyron. It beats all those cars from Like The Wind in SSRX. Even stock with no mods. Those race cars find it really hard to reach above 400km/h without heavily tampering with the gear ratios and aerodynamics.
