I've passed the player ahead of me before, though I'm not sure why he was still "running" at that point.

The "bunny hop" method is very nice for keeping momentum going while turning around corners, I'd wager you have to use it if you want to run faster than 1 min 15 sec.

My new best time is 1 min 14 sec, I wager improvement will be only marginal from here on out.

I don't think the Frosted Boots do anything, as the track is already frosted...

I use mouse-aim, plus generous use of strafe keys. Using this method, I've never had to let go of the forward sprint button and I always stay (mostly) inside the track.

Haven't exactly timed myself, but my fastest was when my NPC opponent juuuust turned the corner and became visible, before he was poofed out of existence.

I decided just to go for the win rather than speed after leaving the track too many times. Sometimes I don't see the enemy anywhere near but today it was too close. I really don't want to have to run the race multiple times per day as it saps the enjoyment out of it.

He's just cutting corners. You can do nearly straight thru the last 3 banks before the finish line. But you need a lot of speed going into them.

Yeah those last 3 banks are a pain if you don't hit them just right....

Anyways, I've caught people a few times and managed to pass the guy ahead of me's AI opponent quite often.

I can haz joystick!

My slowest time though is around 2min - so it all depends on the mood I am in, also the races iat times are affected by server latency etc...

Total time per day on a smooth day, around an hour

Total time per day w/latency, load times, lag - also side events, around 3hrs

Though after the runs I stop playing, 46runs kinda burns me out - I am almost done, most of my toons have Q Pics x740 as of 12/24/2012
Let's set aside the fact that you have 46 characters in a game with only 3 classes & 2 factions.

My question is what do you plan to do with 46 copies of the exact same, character bound, ship?
