Kras City is a combat racing track used in the Kras City Grand Championship during Jak X: Combat Racing. One of the smaller and most common courses, the Kras City track has three laps for the circuit race and leads only through Kras City itself, as its name implies. It was also featured in the opening sequence of the game, and as such, the exterior and bar sign of the Bloody Hook can be seen.
Note that Keira's first training session at the beginning of the game takes place at the start of this track.
Description[edit | edit source]
The course starts off fast in defining those who will stay up front and who stay behind, as the first turn throws the racers into a narrow tunnel with supports placed periodically in the center. There are few pick-ups here, meaning that those who are ahead generally stay ahead assuming that their car doesn't explode. Avoid crashing into the supports and exit the tunnel, driving along the waterfront. There's a harsh double hairpin turn up next, so be careful to take it properly. One more wide U-turn up ahead has several gas pumps placed in the middle, which will inflict damage if struck. After this, the course will make a sharp right turn. [a]
The last section of the Kras City track involves a T-split, allowing for the racers to go either left or right. However, one should never take the right path as the left one has an optional shortcut available shortly before they merge again. It is very easy to miss the shortcut, as the ramp to reach it is out of sight behind a corner and easily passed at high speed. Use the ramp, make the jump and you can reach the finish line faster than you would if having ignored it and continuing along the main road after the two paths have merged again. Note that during freeze rally, an extra token may be collected by taking this shortcut.
If you take the right path instead of the left, you will eventually come to a large bridge shortly after the two paths merge. It is near here where the Bloody Hook may be observed if done so carefully. After the bridge, the course will make a right turn. [b] Then you only have a large curving turn leading downwards to the left to take before you return to the finish line.

- The Waterfront Loop track is visible on the left but blocked with a barrier.
- The same as a is true here too.
