You take the controls and wait for the green light. 3. . .2. . 1. . YOU'RE OFF! Your engine roars! You shift into high, weave through a pack of cars, and pull out into the open! Now you're into a tight curve! Tires scream! You start to skid — and suddenly another car is right in front of you! You swerve off the road onto the grass, race ahead, then turn back onto the track just before smashing into a road sign! You gun it down the straightaway —seconds count — and you're across the finish line in record time! You breathe a sigh of relief.. .but that was just the qualifying lap — now it's time for the real race!
