I'm seriously impressed by the number of people who were able to finish this race and I say good job to everyone who has.
I beat this race in the original pc version back in the day even if it was way too hard and took too many tries.
Anyways I have been at it for quiet a while. Spent a good 6 to 8 hours over 4 nights. Never got better than 4 place. Got really sick of the loading times and skipping the race intro after each retry.
I put it off for a while than thought with the ps5 the loading would be more bearable. It's better but not as great as I thought it would be.
Been at it again after a few nights but still not even close to being able to beat it. Watched all the videos and read all the forum posts I could find and even with all the good tips, I can't for the life of me finish this race in first
When I do well I always screw up somewhere.
Anyhow I usually pride myself in doing trophies myself, but I think I've put enough tries into it but it has become sort of an obsession and I need to get this platinum.
If there were any generous souls out there willing to help me just beat this race I would appreciate it greatly.
If not maybe my long rant will help me get passed it.
Good luck to all those who need it.
Edit: Complaining does pay off, I apparently made a big accident on first u-turn and the five last cars stayed there and the front of the pack got caught in it during second lap and just had to drive carefully during the last 2 laps and I was golden.
