You Just Lost Your Sponsors


In Dinosaur Canyon, take the first left from the starting position and persue the road backwards. The road bends to the right and leads to a dead end, where the player will be greeted with a sign that reads "CONGRATULATIONS You Just Lost Your Sponsors!".

Upside-down Jeffry


Jeffry Mcwild from Virtua Fighter appears as a statue in Sea-Side Street Galaxy. Travel in the wrong direction and he'll appear upside-down.

Make Jeffry dance


If the player comes to a stop nearby and repeatedly presses X, Jeffry will breakdance (or at least, spin on the spot and flip upside-down).

Hold Up-left+R on the "GENTLEMEN START YOUR ENGINES" screen. Then when the race starts, you should have a hovering car. As you pick up speed, your height above the ground increases, eventually letting you fly over your opponents (though you will fall back down to Earth if you hit anything).

On the records menu, highlight "time attack" and a track, then press HOLD  START C. A replay of the recorded time will then play.

Race against developer ghost cars

In the time attack mode, hold X+Y+Z when selecting the number of laps. If successful, you will be racing alongside a ghost car set by the developers.
