Eastern Tour is a combat racing track used in the Kras City Grand Championship during Jak X: Combat Racing. The grand tour track of the Haven City courses in the championship, the Eastern Tour begins on the Forbidden Jungle, followed by the coastal section of the City Outskirts that leads into the Haven City track itself. Here, the course heads into New Haven, then the Slums, and then the Industrial Section. The track continues and enters the Waterworks Circuit portion of the sewers, followed by the Sewer Raceway, the last part of the tour.
Description[edit | edit source]
The track immediately starts with forcing the racers onto an old stone bridge, followed by a short drive through a narrow canyon, after which the path splits up as you head onto the beach. Take either the left or right as they merge again shortly afterwards and continue along the beach until you enter the jungle. Up next is a stone tunnel through a large temple. The tunnel is narrow and leads into an open drop. Make sure to drive straight and fast lest you get caught in the water below or crash into any obstacles in mid-air. Up ahead is another stone temple. Enter it and follow a few turns and curves as you drive onto another stone bridge followed by a tunnel.
After the tunnel comes Haven City, the streets are not particularly dangerous, though do stay clear from the edges of buildings and walls, as they tend to protrude. They are otherwise fairly uneventful and the same goes for the drive through the Slums that follows. Eventually you will reach a tunnel with red lighting, signaling the start of the Industrial Section, after the slanted road at the start you will have to take two sharp corners and enter a tunnel that ends with a bottleneck, leading into the Haven sewers.
The last stretch of the tour, this raceway is home to several sharp turns and protruding corners. Avoid boosting directly into one, as it will likely end with crashing into a wall. Power slide often and use the boost to gain speed when the road is clear, while being careful around the flooded sections as the water wil reduce traction. Lastly, before reaching the finish line, be cautious of any pipelines in the center of the route, as crashing this close to the end will preclude you from victory.
