XP-5 max/1-0-3-1 31:959 triple boosted. Didn’t think I would be able to do it. Forgot I had this car upgraded slightly more than the others. But I still could not pull it off without full boost. I had no margins for conserving nitro. Just had to go full out and stay off the ramps.

Sorry to hear about your little struggle, oldman, but glad you made it.
With a maxpro Lambo SV it is a no-brainer. Made 31:316 despite an unexpected multi-spin that sent the car into the air and that was not supposed to happen (one of those bugs of Asphalt)..

My SV is only max/0-0-2-0/0-8-0-8 which makes it slower than my XP-5. No worries though. I know this was going to be a skin of my teeth event. There are quite a few of these races where I will have to use a sub max/pro car or be forced to use a particular car because it is the only one I’ve sufficiently upgraded. In any case, I’ve still got a chance at the tokens; so, I’ll keep going.

3 trophies in Venice with max/pro 675LT - DB. Very sloppy run and still came in under by 1/2 a second. But got it and I’m moving on...

Went back and reran unboosted with the 675LT and was able to beat the best time with a clean run. Tells you how sloppy I was with the boosted run that this one was pretty much the same time.

When I read your post I thought that because it was easy for me to beat the time unboosted with the Bentley, I had a feeling it would also be possible to beat it with the McLaren and possibly with all or most of the others. I have not tested though. Anyway, me too, I rerun my race yesterday and made a time 1s better.

Yeah, the Venice sprint was actually not too bad. Quite doable without boosters if you got max/pro cars.
