That happened to me as well in my very first attempt.
TBH, I only managed to do it after 4-5 attempts, always making mistakes, but I used the Renault, dunno if with the AMV it would be easier.

Yeah, the Renault was the default choice given due to rank - but the AMV should be better when both are max/pro.

My first weekly sprint in quite some time. I had most of the cars in this one at or close to max/pro. They have removed the MP tickets. So, I decided to give it a go again. I’m on track to get all 21 trophies. Just finished Iceland. Was worried about this one. I don’t have max/pro on any of the cars. And Iceland is my weakest track, esp the sprint because it is a section of Iceland that I never drive. I made it with the Fenyr which had the highest tune. Had to use boosters.

The last sprint should be easier. My X2 is full pro and London is a pretty easy track, esp without traffic; so, I should have an easier run and be able to get to 21 trophies and the tokens.

My quest here is for a full unboosted week. Based on your experience, I guess Iceland should be ok. I can't try right now, I have ET on, will try later.

Yeah, you'll probably be fine. I just **** at the Iceland track and I didn't have any max/pro cars for it. Boosted, I beat the best time by 1.5 sec.

Tested: all five available cars can easily pass the sprint unboosted, if maxpro.
My reference when having to do Iceland reverse without taking the tunnel is a big rock, as shown in the pics below. I try to pass as close as possible to the left of this rock and then we reach the main road with a sharp left turn.

Unboosted 4404/5050 W motors Fenyr Supersport...nil.

Didn't realize that the boosted version is +37. This is a car that is seriously underpowered considering how much it costs for upgrades.

**** it. Raced again DB and got two trophys. Secured the engine boxes. No way I can achieve the tokens.

Just got the last 3 trophies using the X2 db. Probably, could do it unboosted, but I wanted to make sure and finish in one shot. I'll probably go back and try unboosted later. Will probably run with the Nemesis also. Not as fast as the X2, but the acceleration is glorious. 👍

Anyway, 21 trophies means 75 tokens tomorrow.

Good luck everyone.

I already tried unboosted, could not make it.
Got a better time with Centenario (half second slower, still) than with X2, but I missed the yellow nitro bottle for the X2.
Then another mistake with the Apollo.
I will keep trying...

I tried again unboosted with the X2. I’m half a second short of the best time. Still think it is possible, but I still haven’t done a perfect run yet. Also, the ghost is distracting. Wish there was a way to disable it.
