Stage 01 (A Lesson in Philosophy)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the first stage (A Lesson in Philosophy) are rewarded with 5 Icon Gold. Throughout the first stage, players will have to race the Lotus Type 125 on Circuit de Catalunya.

Quote Ahmed
Greetings, my friend. It is very good to see you again. I've brought you here to Catalunya for a very special treat... I have here, not just one, but a veritable fleet of the amazing Lotus Type 125s!

Lotus and I, we share a passion - a kindred spirit. Many believe the essence of speed is in the presence of power. But Lotus proves, definitively, that it is the absence of weight that brings real speed.

Now how about we have some fun, yes? I'm sure your crew won't mind us spending some time with this beautiful chimera - so close to a Formula 1, and yet unique and apart from it forever!

Brilliant! I have an idea... What say you follow me around the world for a few days - you drive like the maverick you are, and in return I give you the Lotus Type 125.

I'll have a word with your crew, to make sure they're happy with you taking a break from your usual duties... I can be very persuasive, you know.

Quote Michael
*Radio static* Are you there? I've been calling you for hours! Where have you been? Listen, we need you to-
— Michael, Manager
Quote Ahmed
Oops! Looks like I may have accidentally broken off your message - I hope it wasn't important. Oh, it was Michael? Ah, I'm sure he's overreacting again - he never wants anyone to have fun, only business.

But no business today - just excitement! Poetry on wheels! We're are here at Monza to experience the lilting music of the Italian countryside... I hope we can hear it over the roar of our engines!

Stage 03 (Discard the Rulebook)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the third stage (Discard the Rulebook) are rewarded with 5 Icon Gold. Throughout the third stage, players will have to race the Lotus Type 125 on Hockenheimring.

Quote Ahmed
I feel like Alice in Wonderland, tumbling through a world of story and majesty... But it is no cat nor queen I find, but the reimagining of the humble Speed Record!

The heart of Lotus designs is the concept of 'adding lightness'. As Colin Chapman said, 'Adding power makes you faster on the straights; subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere'.

Quote Ahmed
Good morning, my friend. There was something strange about your helmet this morning... I heard some rumblings coming from within. Have you noticed anything? Maybe check your radio?
— Ahmed
Quote Eric
*Radio static* Is that you, hot shot? Sorry about all this, but I managed to tap into your helmet radio. Don't worry, I'm not at all caught up like Michael and Natalia. I get it, you need a break, right? Well, keep it up!

You deserve to kick back every now and then. In my experience some downtime helps make everything run smoother... Just make sure you make it back ok... with my - uh - your Lotus!
