Introduction - Making first steps
Before you'll be allowed to participate in the main events, you will have to pass a short tutorial section of the career mode. Thankfully, there's nothing you should be worried about. You can't lose. Instead, you'll learn some things on how to handle the car. Your first race in GRID World will start automatically, so don't worry that you can't participate in other events. Your objective will be to complete one lap of the San Francisco Grand Prix circuit. You won't have to win this race and you won't even have to finish on the podium. Your only task will be to get to the finish line without wrecking your car. Thankfully, you will have to complete only one lap, so it won't take too long. Nevertheless, I would advise you to familiarize yourself with this track, especially since a lot of events are going to take place here. Slow down once you've reached the section with a few jumps (screen). You shouldn't be driving too fast, because it's very easy to make a mistake and crash. Thankfully, this track was available in the demo version of the game, so you may already know it. You should also notice that Dodge Viper is a very difficult car to drive, so don't worry if you spin a few times. Good luck! :)
Once you've reached the finish line in the first race, you are going to be rewarded with three racing licences (one license per class). As you've probably noticed, you'll have to earn 80000 respect points in order to unlock better licences in each class, so it's going to take some time. You can't participate in racing events, because you don't own any cars. Instead, you will have to focus your attention on Driver Offers challenges. Check the next section of the guide for more details on these races. Your objective here will be to earn at least 60000 euros. This should become possible once you've finished 4-5 events. Once this is done, you are going to be rewarded with your first car (Ford Mustang Boss 302) and you'll also unlock several other features.
