The guide is in two parts. The first part, Basic Techniques and Strategies, is meant for the new players who are starting out and are looking to get a good understanding of the game. The second part, Shortcuts and Advanced Techniques, is for the player who already masters all the basic techniques and wants to apply that knowledge to specific tracks, in order to improve their time. This guide was written by Justin Zimmermann, with inspiration and some illustrations taken from previous guides by Thomas60, LinkZer and MISTRRL0VE. Some videos were provided by the Facebook group ‘Crash Team Racing – Prova a tempo’, while other videos come from various players on YouTube.
