If you face difficulties doing so, you can call in the flight (a plane that drops a hint in the form of a piece onto your race incomplete track. Once you finish making the track, the second portion of the challenge gets unlocked.
Winning the races
The races in this game grow harder as you progress further. Your performance will depend a lot on the vehicle you’ve chosen to use besides your dexterity, of course.
So, make sure to choose your vehicle wisely before you show up for a race. To get a good boost right off the start, make sure to keep tapping on the screen repeatedly to maximize your boost. The race tracks aren’t that difficult to read and anticipate except for certain obstacles that can terribly reduce your speed and stability like the Gorilla’s stomp or Shark’s chomp.
