Part 1: North Road (Circuit, 2 laps)
Part 2: Canyon duel
Reward: Mazda RX-7
Better late than never. After few hours of driving it's time to face first great challenge - beating Kenji. But him and his RX-7 are not the most difficult opponents out there. Personally I think he's the easier boss, without any matter to order of completing districts. Part one of the race is North Road. Our familiar leaned curves will lead us from the start. After them we won't encounter tight reversals, but a jump known from Park Drive (#1). Next part of the track is also like "the best of district" - we can drive through the reversal or use the shortcut to cut it out (#2). It's the matter of your choice - without the shortcut the course will be a little longer, but then you can reach higher speed. Then we will see this lovely tyre, which we can throw at Kenji's head (#3). A straight and an easy set of corners will lead us to known combination of 90-s. You know what to do. Then you will pass another common shortcut (this one with tight exit - #4) and only a piece of straight will separate you from the end of the first lap.
When we finally make it to the finish line, it will be time for canyon duel. Those races have two parts. In the first we are the one, who chase the escaping boss, then the roles switch but the goal is still the same - be as close to the opponent as possible, scoring points for the meters. The tracks are all similar - combination of reversals. It's important to remember few things about the canyon duels. First - you can lose not only by points, but also by falling out from the track. So look out. Same if we stay way behind our opponent. And one MOST important things. Canyon duel is one race with two parts, so if after completing the first one you wish to restart the second part, you will be forced to start all over again from the very beginning. I know it's stupid, but blame EA for that :) And another useful advice - if your opponent gets close too much to your rear bumper, good idea is to... brake just in front of him, forcing him to hit our car. He will lose points for that. And after all, Kenji is not the most difficult rival, so after a few minutes you will receive a reward of Mazda RX-7 and gain control over Downtown. It's time to prove our domination in the race war.
