Sunday Driving: If You’re Not in First Place, You’re Not Gonna Win

Who’d have thought it, eh? It’s amazing the kind of inane stupidity that spills out of one’s mouth while attempting to concentrate on something else.

This week we continue our attempts to master Capcom’s visually arresting arcade racer Auto Modellista, and start to encounter some serious resistance. And, it seems, overcoming that resistance isn’t as simple as just picking the car with the best stats from the list…

Hit the jump to see how things went in this week’s races.

Turns out that while the Toyota Supra we have in our car lineup is definitely a bit of a speed demon, making it ideal for highway races, it is less good on the corkscrewing hill courses, making for some embarrassing scenes as I lag behind the pack for an entire race.

I need to figure out exactly what kind of car is going to suit these events going forward… because the Supra ain’t it. But it looks like this means I’m going to have to abandon my brand loyalty to Toyota… shock, horror!
