Sadly, I'm getting frozen when trying the first option in the "Rico's blown it" race, in The 250 Challenge campaign part. Nigh on impossible race, was hoping the trainer could do something about that. :/
*Really* stuck on that one, at best I'm maintaining distance to the guy in 4th. Bummer the trainer couldn't just help skip that pain of a race.
Cheers for the attempt though, might work well in other cases.
I had the same problem and kinda "cheesed" through this. You are not completely frozen, you kann accelerate, it's like 60 km&h while you stand, then just Shift in Gear 4....and keep the shift button pressed! I am slowly driving with 40-60 km/h, getting slower, then I repeat this till I was 40 seconds ahead of the frozen first. This preparation needed like 5-10 minutes but I was able to finisch first. Hope this helps! The mission after this everything works again, you freeze the other cars, not yourself.
