How much money do you get per place?
Its all listed in the Car Dealer under Season _ Earnings.

Ah, good-o, thanks.

So, just to clarify as I haven't raced with the car dealer before, you get the winnings from each round + the trade in value of your car at the end of each round and you lose your winnings each round if you don't use them?

Honestly, I'm not sure anymore. :-[
I just look after each round and see what's available. :P

That's right. Thus time it's a little different to last time we used it. Before, you could save up your money, but it meant people could buy a really fast car after a few rounds and win too easily. This time, your money is just what you won on the last round + the base car.

OK.  Should 1st place also get $2800 then as this is the entry fee?

No, 1st place is actually penalised a little bit to force you into a slower car. You'll always be able to afford the base car. The aim is to mix up the winners a bit.

Oh and Guybrush, the money ranking goes not by finishing position but by fastest race lap times. We learnt this before - someone who is really fast in a car but bombs out of a race for whatever reason and finishes near the back shouldn't win a heap of money which makes them even faster.

I didn't race last week because I was too sick to get out of bed, which was annoying because I could have finally afforded the Merc, but when I checked the dealer tonight the ole bank account will only allow the bottom two cars....again! Whilst I understand you don't want people to save money wouldn't missing a round be enough of penalty without feeling the need to raid their piggy bank as well...?

That's bad luck about being sick. I hope you feel better now.

I'll have to see if I can change the code to make an exception for people who didn't start, because that would be fairer. In the meantime, I've given you enough cash to buy the Merc.
