Just CauseEdit

Deliverance race with Shimizu Tumbleweed

A Shimizu Tumbleweed at the end of Deliverance.

Just Cause (1) has 9 races. They are hosted by the Rioja Cartel. The races in San Esperito are checkpoint races, without any competitors, just like the races in Panau.

The game tells you that you can use any land vehicle for a land race; any aircraft for an air race and any boat for a water race. However, all races can be started with any vehicle.

This means that most races can be completed with a helicopter. The Agency Whiptail Gyrocopter is the best one for the job, because it's the smallest. "Hang Ten" can be completed with a Fixed-wing aircraft, but fast helicopters such as the Delta MAH-15 Chimaera work too.

The race names and your best times are listed in the PDA statistics.

Race Name Location Provided Vehicle Special Notes
Deliverance In Isla de la Asuncion province. West of the Rioja 01 "Buena fortuna" safehouse. At an EL gas gas station. Hurst Buckaroo At one point there's an unusual obstacle on the road, with some logs and a Scando Track Loader Extreme.
Freakwave In Provincia de Rio Negro province. Across the lake from Rioja 02 "Paradiso bay" safehouse. At a dock in the southern part of the town Paradiso Bay. Triereme - RC Athena This is the only boat race.
Mount Doom In the Los Hidalgos province. Right across the road from the Agency 03 "Camp farmhouse" safehouse. Behind an EL gas gas station. Hurst Dagger This race can be difficult because of all the traffic on the narrow road. Stay calm and patient. Try different sports cars and always save them at the nearst safehouse first (to save time after failing).
The Endless Summer In the Encarnacion‏‎ province. To the east of Nuevo Estocolmo. At the Casa Isabella cartel villa. Yamada 37-14 Vaquero The race takes place at a purpose-built obstacle course which contains muliple jump ramps and a functioning parked Pankhurst Bus Tap Tap, which has to be jumped.
Hang Ten In the Costa Verde province. To the east of the Guerrlla 20 "Campo pueblo" safehouse. At an unmarked civilian airfield. Huerta SPA Ocelot
  • It's impossible to drive a plane backwards, so drive very slowly when you approach the starting line.
  • A part of the race passes over the non-solid bumpy road and right after that, a missing bridge. Both are among the Just Cause Bugs and glitches.
  • One checkpoint is between the chimneys of a factory. The next checkpoint after it is to the left, so make a sharp left turn.
Blood and Asphalt In the Costa Verde province. To the south-east of the Guerrlla 20 "Campo pueblo" safehouse and to the south of the race "Hang Ten". In a small unmarked settlement. Hurst Dagger The end of the race is at a cliff, so you may jump out before going over, or you may Parachute your way down, but stopping would cost time from the race.
Beach Head In the Provincia de Cordoba province. To the south-west of the Guerrlla 27 "Campo Halcon" safehouse. Stinger GP
  • The race takes place at a purpose-built obstacle course, which contains many explosive Red Barrels. A lot of these barrels only spawn durng the race.
  • There's a few small lakes in the possible old sand quarry. Driving through them slows the vehicle down, so try to go past them to get a better time.
Phantom Riders In Esperito City - North. West of the Rioja 07 "Motor city" safehouse. At an EL gas gas station. Rossi 866 Corral There's a wooden stunt ramp in this race, which can't be seen outside of the race. Do not make this jump at maximum speed, or the car will stop during the landng and you'll lose a few seconds. Don't go too slow, or the car will crash into the landing ramp and you'll have to go around it. This may take practice.
Another Saturday Night In Esperito City - South. Near the Giant statue of Salvador Mendoza. At a "Supermercado" store. There can be several vehicles parked at the store parking lot, but only the Chevalier Street Bird De Luxe is always there. This track goes through a park and over a small hill. There's a collectable item on top of that hill. The item is from the collect mission "Red Eyes".

Description and tips for Just Cause 2Edit

Provided vehiclesEdit

Peek Airhawk 225 race in Lautan Lama Desert

One of the checkpoints being passed.

Bandar Gereja Gurun and Desert Dash race (map)

Map of the race "Desert Dash" and the location of Bandar Gereja Gurun.

Some races are supposed to be done by Parachute and Grappler, but Rico is usually provided with a vehicle. None of the vehicles are unique in their shape, but they are all in a unique red color that can't be seen anywhere else. Despite being provided with a vehicle, you are free to use any vehicle of a certain type, specified at the race start when it shows you the route, either land, sea or air. You can use a helicopter for all races despite the in-game message telling you that you must use a land/sea/air vehicle. 


None of the races have any other competitors. You just have to get through all the checkpoints in a short enough time.

You can fail a race if you drive too slowly, or if you just drive away from the mission area. But you will never fail a race for destroying your vehicle. This allows you to get a new vehicle, either by Hijacking the nearest convenient one, or by buying one from the Black Market (which isn't recommended considering you will probably spend more on a vehicle than what the race pays- $20,000). Getting a new vehicle isn't recommended if you're trying to beat your old best time.


Checkpoints are your objective throughout any race while the amount of checkpoints varies depending on the race being run. When you near a checkpoint (in your vehicle or on foot), they will burst into (harmless) flames to help add visibility. When passing through a checkpoint, you will get 00:10:00 (10 seconds) added to your remaining time (the exception being The Raya Race, which adds 30 seconds because of it's enormous length). The checkpoint ring explodes as you pass through it, but this causes no damage to you or your vehicles. In some races there are optional "bonus" checkpoints that will appear between a few of the mandatory numbered checkpoints, these will require you to take a more difficult line (e.g. under a bridge for aircraft, over a jump or parachuting over a bridge for cars), and will reward you with 00:20:00 (20 seconds) added to your time.


Rico gets $20,000 for every completed race, even if the race has been finished before, or if he doesn't beat his previous best time. This is a source of infinite money.

The game also lets the player keep the vehicle, whether they beat the race or not.


  • Spend the time before you go through the start point to get a good vehicle, not necessarily the provided one - e.g. for road races it might be better to hijack a random passing car than to use the provided one.
  • A helicopter (especially a Rowlinson K22) will usually be easier than the provided aircraft for aerial races. Just make sure to keep going forward towards the checkpoint especially when they are farther apart, since choppers are not as fast as planes.
  • Road races in Panau City are easier at night, when there isn't so much traffic.
  • Do try the races with the provided vehicle at least once, they are chosen to make the race more challenging/interesting/fun!
  • Certain races are easier to do when military bases that they pass through are completed.
  • Races, especially those with aircraft, may often show locations of unmarked settlements, Gas Stations, Pipelines, Resource Items, etc.

Just Cause 3Edit

City Sprint race map

This one features the Mugello Farina Duo.

Race challenges return in Just Cause 3, where completing them will unlock Gear Mods. The races also have leaderboards that work over the internet.

The in-game Rebel drop mentions races in the Windhund 4 info: "Autostraad's Windhund 4 has earned a reputation in Medici's underground racing circuit as a turn-hugging speedster built for Drifting. Top speed 240 km/h."

Air RaceEdit

These are usual checkpoint races for Planes and helicopters. If the Nitrous Gear Mod has been unlocked, the provided vehicle will have it. You can start a race to get a vehicle with your upgrades and not have to rebel drop it in.

Crash BombEdit

Mugello Quipozza F (crash bomb)

Mugello Quipozza F with the bomb is considered to be one of the Easter Eggs in Just Cause 3.

"Crash bomb" events are where the player is provided with a vehicle that has a Bavarium bomb on its rear end and tasked with driving it to the destination as fast as possible. Along the way, the player has to stay above a specific speed (going below that speed can decrease points) and upon reaching the target the player has to bail out of the vehicle. The vehicle then continues to drive forward until it crashes into the target and explodes. The target is always a group of Medici Military soldiers and a variety of military cars including D.R.M. Stria Facoceros, Stria Obreros, Urga Fura 570s, Weimaraner W3s, and more.

Every race you will pass a military Weimaraner W3 at some point. At that point, you will instantly get Heat level 3 and Urga Szturm 63As as well as a Urga Postolka will spawn to chase you.

Doing these missions will upgrade the GE-64 explosives. There's no need to get 5 gears in all races to unlock the last upgrade. 15 gears will be left over.

List of events:

Name Liberate to unlock Vehicle
Off-Roader Bomb Blast Fortalessa Weimaraner Z80

Incendiario Blast Porto Coclea Incendiario Monster Truck


  • "Laguna Blast" - Once you're through the town, go off road to the right and go through the farm backyard. Right after that keep to the left a little and over the cliff, down to the beach. Then go straight to the target.
  • "Mountain Bend Blast" - This is the only difficult one. The first cliff can be used as the first shortcut, but it may take practice to find the best spot. Turn off the cliff too early and you'll risk flipping the van, or just lose time. It may look like you should go left at the gas station and take the barely visible dirt road, but really it's much faster to get there by going right and using the road. The Medici Military will send multiple Weimaraner W3 cars to stop you. Sometimes there may also be an Urga Bkolos 2100.
  • "Incendiario Blast" - Unlike most other Crash Bomb courses, this one's objective is almost 2km away and the arming speed of the bomb is 75km/h. It's also the first and currently only known occasion you can use an Incendiario without unlocking it in the Rebel Drop.

Destruction FrenzyEdit

Destroy as many military assets as possible within the time limit. Rapid destruction builds up a multiplier which makes higher scores easier. The timer does not start until the first destruction. After the timer runs out, the event will not end until your multiplier also runs out. Planning your destruction carefully and setting tethers before beginning is advantageous. Gears earned here unlock Grenade Gear Mods.

Tip: Some destruction challenges may be completed much easier by rigging chaos objects with tethers before starting the timer. Other challenges, notably the Machine Gun Frenzy, may be significantly easier if a weaponized vehicle intended as a target is hijacked.

Land RaceEdit

These are usual checkpoint races for ground vehicles, just like in JC1 and JC2, but all the provided vehicles have the nitrous Gear Mod (if available).

Scrapyard ScrambleEdit

In this event the player has to collect large lumps of Bavarium, using Dimah's "Bavarium attractor". The "Bavarium attractor" is basically a magnet that must be grappled to the provided Urga Szturm 63A (which has the nitro Gear Mod, if available). The "Bavarium attractor" can be turned on and off. The car must then be driven around the event area to collect a large amount of Bavarium chunks. Bavarium must be delivered to a big pit with automatically opening doors at the bottom. The player can make multiple deliveries and starting from the end of the first, the Medici Military sends a few Weimaraner W3 cars after you.

Scrapyard scrambles award gears for Tether Gear Mods.


  • If the vehicle has a nitro upgrade, don't use it. This event is one where "slow and steady wins the race", because speed will break up the towed pile.
  • Don't try to make the towed pile of bavarium bigger than the size of a bus (worth around 10000 to 15000 points). The pile swings around and breaks up too easily otherwise.
  • Avoid driving near any Red Barrels. They can send your Bavarium flying away. If strategically needed, stop, get out and shoot at some barrels to make a safe path, but it's advised to try different driving routes first, because getting out to shoot wastes valuable time.
  • Ignore the chasing Medici Military Weimaraner W3 cars. They are likely to get blown up during the event anyway and stopping to fight them wastes time.
  • When completing a delivery, release the "Bavarium attractor" on top of the pit doors. The bavarium chunks might not all always roll down and the Medici Military Weimaraner W3 cars could ram some of it away from the pit.
  • There's two types of bavarium, normal and quality. A piece of quality bavarium is worth about 5.5x more than a similarly-sized piece of normal bavarium, but quality bavarium is rarer and most of it will be harder to get.
  • It has been reported that the timer will not start if the player uses a helicopter. This allows the player to collect as many pieces of bavarium as they like.

Wingsuit WonderEdit

Main article: Wingsuit Wonder

This takes place at the eDEN Airship (Sky Fortress DLC). In this challenge you see how long you can wingsuit. Most people apparently get around 2-5 minutes. The Bavarium Wingsuit can let the player get up to 20 minutes or more. Some videos on Youtube show people making it an hour or more.

Mech ArenaEdit

Main article: Mech Arena.

These appear as a part of the Mech Land Assault DLC and require the use of a Mech. Throughout the challenge, you are tasked with defeating Black Hand forces, with increasing difficulty as you go along. Completing the challenge will unlock more gear mods for the Mech.

Boat InvadersEdit

These appear as a part of the Bavarium Sea Heist DLC and require the use of the eDEN Spark. Throughout the challenge, you are tasked with defeating Black Hand forces, coming in naval vehicles and attack helicopters. Completing the challenge will unlock more Gear Mods for the Eden Spark.

Just Cause 4Edit

JC4 feats (pre-launch gameplay)

Just Cause 4 has them sorted into multiple tabs. One of them is "feats".

The Dare Devils of Destruction DLC adds a number of races and other extreme motoring challenges. These are currently listed under missions, so see Category:Just Cause 4 Missions for a sorted table of them.


Trivia (general)Edit

Trivia (JC1)Edit

  • There is only one boat and sea race.

Trivia (JC2)Edit

  • All races provide green-marked red paint scheme vehicles, but some of those vehicles are the only time they can be seen.

Trivia (JC3)Edit

  • The Bavarium bomb in "Crash bomb" events is an easter egg referencing Back to the Future. The additional rear end placed on a vehicle for the challenge is a homage to the DeLorean time machine (where if driven above 88mph it would time-travel in a loud explosion - called "breaking the time barrier"). The easter egg is most noticeable on a Mugello Quipozza F, as the car and bomb together look quite similar to the DeLorean time machine.
  • Game developers mentioned in an interview about Just Cause 3 that Rico was a race-car driver before joining The Agency.
    • This is further proven by Alessia speaking to Rico after delivering a Mugello Farina Duo to Rebel drop, saying "Hey Rico! You used to race one of these before... before you left. I mean."
  • Some of the races in Just Cause 3 require many gear mod upgrades before they can successfully get 5 gears in every challenge. For example, the "Citate Regata" naval race after liberating Citate Di Ravello will require the "Nitrous II" upgrade in order to get 5 gears. Otherwise, it is impossible.
  • There is a loophole to all "Destruction Frenzy" challenges in that the provided weapon / vehicle does not have to be used (optional in simple terms).
    • In several destruction frenzies, a vehicle with Vehicle mounted weapons might spawn at the base which can be used instead of your provided vehicle / weapon.
    • An example of this is the "FOW Frenzy" at Falco Maxime: Centcom where a CS Navajo spawns and even though the Dionysus PLDS-H can get 5 gears, it is much faster to get 5 gears with the Navajo.
