you have to turn around and get the one behind you first. then continue around in a circle (sort of) for the others. Yeah Kritter, GT3 is long. The key to GT3 is to get an F1 car at the endurance race w/ the oval track. I earned my F1 with an RX-8.
The best PS2 game by far is GTA 3 (Grand Theft Auto)... well, besides Metal Gear Solid of course. GTA3 takes forever also, but if you get pissed off, you can just go shoot people in the head & watch the blood spray everywhere. Brilliant ! ! !
