Quote Ahmed
Hello, my friend! I'm glad you made it! Did you enjoy the private jet? Good, good! Well, your suffering through all that luxury was certainly worth it, for it's my pleasure to bring you along with me...

...to the 70th Anniversary for Porsche in Leipzig! It's been a glorious 70 years since June 8, 1948, when the first 356 "No.1" Roadster rolled into our hearts, and set the standards for the Porsche tradition!

And to celebrate, Porsche are opening their archives to the finest drivers in the land over the next week. In a true show of generosity, they are offering the finest driver their pick of the litter!

Stage 02 (Paying Homage)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the second stage (Paying Homage) are rewarded with R$icon5,000 and 5 Icon Gold. Throughout the second stage, players will have to race the PORSCHE 911 GT1-98 on Circuit des 24 Heures.

Quote Natalia
The points Ahmed forgot to mention are that Porsche is running a promotional event to celebrate their 70 years. They'll be giving away the winner's pick, judging based on racing performance and pizzazz!

But the "best laid plans of mice and men" and all that... Well... It seems Porsche weren't the only ones to have this idea! Several other manufacturers have take to the tracks to show their stuff!

What would I be, if not an amazing mediator, right? Well, I managed to convince everyone that a bit of friendly rivalry would be good PR for everyone. Instead of calling the whole thing off, it's in full swing!

Quote Michael
I heard what Ahmed said... He can hold whatever opinion he wants; he truly is a ridiculous man... But perhaps Natalia is right: Cozy up to Ahmed, as his antics might actually pay off if we suffer through them.

Follow along with whatever nonsense he commands. Soon enough, we'll have a new car, and we can forget this whole thing ever happened. OK, here he comes. Act natural!
