Stage 01 (Introduction)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the first stage (Introduction) are rewarded with 5 Icon Gold. Throughout the first stage, players will have to race the Hennessey Venom GT on Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Quote Norm
Good to see you, mate! I'm glad to see you out here today. An opportunity's come up, and I knew you were the one for the job. Does the name Hennessey Venom GT mean anything to you?

That's what I thought! Well, I've got my hands on one, and just in time too. The Cloudmusiq World Records are being judged over the coming week. I've always wanted to fill the book, but never could myself...

If a whippersnapper like you's willing to listen to my experience, we should have no trouble with the Records. And if you can fulfil the dream - filling the book - then the Venom GT is yours for the keeping. So let's get started!

Wow! Zoé's amazing out there! I think you've got your work cut out for you with this one.

Zoé's good, but I'm sure with a bit of elbow grease you'll be a fine contender. I've always enjoyed driver rivalries - they keep you focused. Tomorrow, Eric wants to get to work making the Venom even better!

Hey hot-shot, I heard that Zoé gave you a run for your money. Well, that's all about to change. I've got big plans for the Venom, and with them in place you'll have no problems! Just... Don't tell Zoé I helped you, ok?

I cannot believe you did it! Not that I doubt your skill, but even with a damaged vehicle you pulled through. Whilst I sincerely hope to defeat you in the Cloudmusiq World Records, it’s a gamble I’m willing to take. Until then.

Quote Norm

Quote Norm
Second last day of the Cloudmusiq World Records - we don't have much time left to make a name for ourselves! Luckily, today's a variety day, two smaller records - longest tailgate, and longest skid.
— Norm
Quote Zoé
That means you need to be on your guard, though. A small event is no less important. If you let too many Records slip, I may beat you in the end.

Quote Norm
We’re almost there, mate. Only one big record left - the World’s Fastest Production Car! For these attempts, rules state that Braking Assists are going to be set to low.

But… I’ll level with you. I’m feelin’ a bit sentimental. I miss the good old days, you know?

You reckon we could try to set another record first? I’d like to be the world’s oldest race winner. You and me together, we should have no trouble setting it!
