    Check custom races before bed, 100 laps. If there are none, create one. It's a great way to train racing skill to work some wins if you don't have the car stats. The alternative is joining a company that gives racing points but TBH that's not worth it. Just get your 100 lap night races in and make sure you have a class appropriate car.

    Start your own one, set it two people max, then you finish in either first or second position to maximize your possible RS gain. And keep spamming officials during the day, RNG will pull you through.

    If you save 0 points for cars when going to A (I slogged saving points on half built cars so I could have a maxed on A class) then I could see it being a really difficult start. Nothing that can't be overcome with racing skill and a slog though.

    For me it was also a Ferrari, not the best on any track but almost on par with some, and strong all arounder.

    I wrote a guide for no racing points... so yeah I get it. If you didnt see Baldr's FAQ or figure it out yourself it's a tough place to be.
