    So, it never explained when you start a race against the Formula cars, how to do a flying start, aka, a boost or just a normal start, i can't find out how to do it. The rest of the grid speeds off in mach 1, while there am i still going 60. Can someone explain to me how to get a good start?

    When the 3rd light turns off, floor it and you will gat a power boost off the starting line,just like mario kart. :p

    Sorry i could not resist.

    As far as I can tell you just wait a few seconds after the red lights go out shift into first and slip the clutch enough to avoid wheel spin. Time it right and you can get off the line pretty well. Otherwise go slow and stay out of the way so you don't get creamed in the first corner. ;)

    Just floor it and shift into first when the lights go out. Pretty simple.

    I hold most cars at around 70-80% throttle, I use the clutch on h shifter cars but on sequential gearboxes I just stay at about 70-80% throttle and slap it into first when the lights go out and quickly go full throttle.

    yes, once in while, you may even get a faster start than the field. Full power, grab first as soon as the lights go out and ease up just a bit on the gas once rolling to gain traction.
