How to Get First Prize in racing
How to Get First prize in hard racing with totally upgraded car?
Answer from: Noelcm
Start again - race the standard Clio again and again until you have 150,000 cash to upgrade fully. It's slow but you can win every time.
Learn to balance the car on the long fast curves. Lines through corners as big and wide as possible. Don't waste time continuing after being clobbered out of the running - save & exit - start again. DO NOT DO TIME TRIALS - only racing! Upgrade tyres and chassis fully first - then race only - forget the time trials - gather another 100,000 and upgrade fully - try timetrials if you want to waste time.

Since there's a 400 character limit on answers, I'll have to give my answer in parts. This is Part 1.
Item 1: The other racers are out to ram out out of the race. Learn this lesson quickly if you want to avoid losses. However, they are also out to ram each other out of the race. At the start, watch for other racers taking each other out in front of you, then use that as a passing opportunity.
Item 2: Many of the races involve doubling back on yourself, which puts you in the firing line for the other racers coming the other way. Do NOT drive along the centre of the road if you're on such a part of the racecourse, or the back markers will take evil delight in ramming you one after the other, and wrecking your car. Instead, head as far left or right as you can whilst avoiding traffic, and let them sail past down the middle of the road.
Item 3: Master the dirt tracks. There are some tight turns on the dirt tracks that the other racers NEVER manage to execute properly. Take these tight turns correctly with a well timed handbrake turn, and you can leave the other racers for dust.
Item 4: Likewise, take advantage of turns leading onto bridges, as the other racers try to take these at full speed, and end up in the water. Execute a well timed handbrake turn onto the bridge and pull away as the other racers pile into the water.
Item 5: Choose your car carefully for races over hump back bridges. The Galant S500 and the Uber-Atom 2000 are pretty much ideal for this, as they have sorted suspension. Do NOT pick the Cosmo, as this car hates hump back bridges! This car is set up for racetracks, not bumpy city roads, with suspension that's way too stiff, and it shows when you pilot it at speed. The Alpha GRX8 is a hideous choice in standard trim, because it's too easy for the other racers to tip over or wreck, but when fully upgraded, it's a combat weapon, with vicious turn in and storming acceleration. But, it's a combat weapon that takes serious skill to drive well, because the steering is flighty at speed - it's an adrenaline rush par excellence, but the transition to bad parts of the envelope is a fine dividing line with this car.
In short: best choices are:
 Galant S500
 Alpha GRX8 (if you don't mind the moments of terror it brings at speed)
 Clio (a proper weapon when fully upgraded, and small enough to slip through gaps the others can't follow)

Answer Part 2:
Item 6: Pick your upgrades with care! ALWAYS upgrade in the following order:
In other words, the reverse order in which they appear in the pop up list at the garage. If you do this, your car will handle FAR better.
Item 7: If you see another racer moving alongside you, and trying to make contact, that other racer is trying to spin you off the road. Learn preventive measures to deal with this. If he's trying to spin you from the left, steer right, and vice versa.
Item 8: Rival cars that are generally easy to push out of the way are:
 Accord Z8 : it's more fragile than a shop full of antique porcelain being bulldozed by an M1 Abrams :)
 Thunder-1960 : it's about as stable as a fissioning uranium nucleus. Don't hit the front, that's the heavy bit with the engine. Hit the tail end and you can tip it over with ease, which is why you don't choose this car to race with yourself!
 Rover H1200: Lardy SUV type pose mobile with a higher centre of gravity than Dolly Parton trying to do beam gymnastics a la Nadia Comaneci. Hit it right, especially with a wedge shaped car, and you can tip this slagheap over easily.

Answer Part 3:
Item 9: Learn the landmarks. There's two hump back bridges in particular that are a pain to cross at speed, the one nearest the suspension bridge being an evil one. Even in a sorted car, these are a pig to take at anything over 80. Likewise, don't take hill crests at speed, brake until you're at about 65, keep your tyres in contact with the floor, and let the other idiots launch themselves into orbit while you take right angle turns deftly at the bottom of the road. Use the downhill side for added acceleration once you've done this. Also, learn to master those crap bridges with the divider down the middle - instead of trying to drive alongside the divider, as the other racers do, learn to run along the angled bit past traffic. Also, that island in the middle connecting them - if you come off the stone bridge and turn right onto one of the divider bridges, brake first - the other racers will try and take that turn at full tilt and end up in the drink.
Meanwhile, if you want some evil fun, try this. To the north of the suspension bridge is a big grassy patch, alongside the road that leads to the 5-way intersection and the garage. There's trees and a handy rock on that grassy patch. If you're being pursued by police, drive around the trees and the rock on that grassy patch, best of all in a figure 8 pattern, and let the police cars smash into said trees and rock. This will result in them becoming smoking wrecks, with "The Police Car Has Been Deactivated" handily popping up when this happens, and adding $200 to your account for each police car that's been wrecked. For extra evil fun, at the end, you can round up the wrecks and push them into the river by the suspension bridge. Takes time, but *very* satisfying!
