Tired of playing (and winning) Racing League and/or Free Tracks? Try:
1. Driving the course in reverse gear,
2. Driving the course in the opposite direction, driving slowly in order to take in the scenery (rather pleasant),
3. Driving the course in the opposite direction for one lap, and then turning to chase the other three cars. You might be surprised at what you find,
3. Driving the course in the oposite direction until you find a really narrow part, wait for the other three cars to arrive, and then blast, or charge at them [the bridge in Desert Island is a good site to choose for this activity].

Enjoy  Wink

Other slight modifications to those already mentioned:
1. Apply reverse as soon as a race has started, back up to the corner preceding the start/finish line, wait until the other cars have got a half circuit start on you, and then chase. You can build a up a really good speed, especially in the 200 cc class, challenging your cornering skills, without encountering gremlins. You'll notice too that you get more Action Boosts. Watch out for those black dots!
2. Linger about half a track length behind the other three cars until the final lap, and try to time your sprint for the finish line behind one of the other cars, so that it gets the gremlin obstruction. Often it doesn't pay to take the lead in these races.

I usually go all the way to the finish line then stay there and crash the first car coming. It's funny.  Smiley

Yet more variety. In Desert Island, try to get ahead of the other three racers to grab the Levitation tool. Then, proceed to just below the bridge and stop, allowing the other racers to pass you. Wait and watch until all or most of them are at the very top of the bridge, and then activate Levitation. Some spectacular results can occur. You can then get ahead of the bunch. See if you can repeat the fun, but it all depends on the allocation of bonus 'tools'.

Suggestion: try the above in the 50 cc class first, as it's hilarious watching the snail-like progress of the other racers as they try to recover from their mishap.

This is an excellent way to see who ACTUALLY finishes second and third (in Free Tracks). You have to be careful not to cross the finish line though, and the banner stretching across sometimes hinders the view.
