The game loads fast opponents' cars. These include for example a BMW McLaren F1 GTR Race car, BMW V12 LMR, Audi R8 '01. When this event is loaded for another time, this game will load Toyota GT-One Race car, Mazda 787B Race car, Toyota 7 Race car or - in some cases - even a Jaguar XJ13 Race car or Chaparral 2J.
Hence opponents drive very fast cars in this event, a well-set car is essential to win this race in both A and B spec. For both A and B spec, the Red Bull X2010 S. Vettel is a perfect choice as it turns fast and reaches high speeds exceeding 250 mph. LMP race cars are also good choices as well.
