In the Time Trial mode the task is to complete a track as quickly as possible.
Before you can start playing you need to decide what name you want to use. You can use whatever name you like but it's highly recommended that you use the same name each time and that each person uses a unique name.
The name will be used in the top time lists and will also be used to keep track of your personal best time for each track.
By default the name is not saved to avoid that someone else uses your name by accident, but if you prefer you can let the game remember the name so that you don't have to type it in each time you play.
The track list contains all the tracks that has been played before and they all have at least one time that you can try to beat. If there is a track you don't like use the Delete key to remove it.
When selecting a new track you also get the chance to decide the number of laps. This number is fixed for each track and can't be changed later. Note that for a new track to appear in the track list you have to finish the race at least once.
Each track has a list of up to eight of the fastest finishing times. These times can be seen while selecting track or after finishing a race. The fastest time for each player is also recorded. Times made by the active driver are highlighted in a light brown colour.
To make equal times less likely the times are recorded in milliseconds unlike the rest of the game where it's recorded in hundredths of a second.
When a driver makes a personal best the driving path is recorded so that a ghost car can follow the path in the races that follows. This usually makes it more fun because there is something visible to compete against and not just the clock. It can also be very helpful when it comes improving your times.
It is possible to show the ghost of your personal best (brown ghost) and the ghost of the best driver (grey ghost).
