    I have asked my buddy, Frankie once before regarding the whereabouts of his 60,960 video. He said he made no 2nd copy as his only original VHS tape was sent to a former referee, Tom Duncan who is long gone from TG for many years now. All he could tell me is that he did pass that extra car for the 50 bonus.

    I tried to pass that extra car but man is it tough. I also tried to finish the first lap under the 58 second mark but keep coming up short on that also. If you could get a 57 on that lap you would get 200 more points at the finish. The game does it's timing based on the first 3 laps, only seconds count. So 52.01 is the same as 52.99. The last lap it takes the entire readout of that lap and adds it to the first 3 laps. I've also played around with the end of the qualifying lap and the beginning of the first lap of the race. I noticed that the cars at the beginning of the race sometimes will make their way up from the bottom of the screen and that might add 1 car being passed. I'll do some more playing around with it and see if I can get it done:)
