I've found that if you talk to Q until he turns you into a targ, it makes the race a whole lot easier because the targ seems to get better "traction" and is smaller so you eat up less track while turning.

Here's an idea...

dont cheat....

Just cause you CAN jump off the cliff... doesnt mean you should.

Have run the race MANY times... dont care bout winning... Gotten 2 tags every single time except...

A. when I was DQ'd (first time at it)
B. When like everyone else I jumped at the first corner.... (wanted to see all the hubbub was about).

So far.. I have found.. When U COMPLETE the track.. U get the tags... Simple.

The race is flawed. I have done it 4 times, half the time you have people who were never in the start area already at the finish and grabbed a flag. The other times I do finish and the flags are there I can not "grab" I can only guess that my cursor will change to "grab it because nothing works. It is a waste of time. I went to a low pop server and only myself and another started it. When we got to the end there was the 2nd and 3rd place flags, but I could not "grab" them. I put in ticket, but doubt I will hear anything before the end of the year. I have not received a single tag. I see the green flashing race about to start, I run when gates go down. I easily stay in course, but I don't get crap and people somehow are able to get flags without being at the starting line. Don't get me wrong, the rest of the winterland is awesome, but this is horribly flawed.

I've completed the race many times without cheating off the cliff and haven't once got any tags if I came somewhere after 3rd place! Sometimes I even finished last! Still no tags!

I guess this race isn't exactly "working as intended" just yet?

I've also observed people legitimately way ahead of me in the PvP race, yet they forget to collect the flag. I ended up scoring a free title and 12 tags.

I had a feeling THAT was the shortcut. Might give it a try, but I fear I may actually jump away from the lower track instead.
