As everywhere else, money management is an important aspect in UnitedGP. You will need a steady income of credits to pay for the production of components, hire good drivers and other staff, buy tyres, run free practice, and more. 

The second currency in UnitedGP are STARS. STARS can be used at many places throughout the game to give your team the edge over your opponents. 

There are many ways to earn credits and STARS throughout UnitedGP:


Sponsor

Your sponsor pays you a regular income, and all you have to do for that is to collect it regularly. The payment amount depends on your career progress, and it can be increased with research
You also receive a bonus through your season sponsor.

Make sure that you collect your money at least once a day, otherwise you will waste money. 


Quest rewards

While you are driving your races, fighting to win the season or race series, you can always work on quests to earn credits and STARS. 
The rewards for quests vary greatly based on their difficulty, but the extra income is always worth it. 


Race rewards

After every race you drive you earn race rewards based on your result. The reward amount you can earn is based on your racing class. 


Race target

Before each career race you will receive a race target that you have to reach to receive an additional reward payment. 

Everytime you reach your race target, the target for the next race will get harder. If you miss your target, the target for the next race will get easier. 


Season rewards

Seasons are not only fun and push you ahead in your career, they also earn you a great extra income, especially if you complete them in a good position

You can also earn a nice amount of STARS when you successfully complete a season. 

 

Race series rewards

While the reward amounts you can earn for a season are quite a bit higher than those you can earn for a race series, the advantage of a race series is that you can earn the rewards much faster. While a season takes several days to complete, a race series takes a maximum of 3 hours, and can be completed in under an hour. 


Hint: it is a good idea to always sign up for a season and a race series. That way your career races count as regular race, season race and series race at the same time. 
That also means that your investment of car components will earn a higher payment than if you drive just a regular career race.

Activation actions and changing your driver tactics are the easiest ways to influence the outcome of a race.
 

Actions

There are 10 different actions that you can activate during the race. Each action has a different effect, so choosing the right one at the right time is important.

Each action stays active for a set amount of time.

When you activate an action you are shown an info box about the action details.

Hint: To view the action details you can perform a longpress on any action icon to open the info screen. The screen also opens when you click on a currently activated action.

At the beginning not all actions are available, you need to unlock them through research. You also start with just 5 actions that you can use for free during each race.

Over time you will unlock all actions through the research tree, you will unlock more actions to be allowed per race, and you can extend the duration that actions will stay active.

List of actions:

  • Full speed - Increases top speed by 50 - Decreases component durability by 10%
  • Corner slamming - Corner speed is increased by 50 - Driver energy reduced by 10%
  • Iron Man - Increases driver energy by 20% - Improves handling by 20
  • Full Focus - Improves breaking and corner speed by 25 - Driver energy reduced by 10%
  • Tyre Treatment - Improves tyre durability by 30%
  • High revs / RPM - Improves acceleration by 60 - Decreased tyre durability by 10%
  • Longlife Oil - Improves component durability by 40% - Decreases acceleration and top speed by 20
  • Engine power pack - Improves top speed and acceleration by 25 - Decreased tyre durability by 10%
  • Special brake fluid - Improved breaking by 40 - Decreases component durability by 10%
  • Energy drink - Increases driver energy by 15 - Decreases stress by 15 (This is the only action without a duration but with an instant, permanent, one-time effect)

 

Driver tactics

You can change your driver’s tactics at any time during a race.

There are three different settings possible: defensive, balanced and aggressive.

Choosing the right tactic at the right moment can bring your racing team closer to reaching your goals.


  • Defensive tactics are good for blocking your opponents. But the components wear is increased significantly. Your driver will also tire much faster.
  • Balanced tactics is the standard setting and it’s set at the begining of each race.
  • Aggressive tactics are good to improve your overtake chances. But the components wear is increased significantly. Your driver will also tire much faster.

The key to success is to use the driver tactics at the right time. Keep a close eye on how the race progresses to pick the right moment.

Race Series are a new type of racing mode with a completely different setup than the UnitedGP seasons.

Series are not only a great way to earn more credits, XP and STARS, they are also a great challenge that can be completed in a single gaming session. Each race series can be completed in about 30 to 40 minutes.

To start your race series, go to SEASON and in upper part of the screen choose RACE SERIES.


How do race series work

Once you start your race series, you will have about 3 hours to complete 5 races on the currently active race track. If the current race track is about to change, your remaining races will be driven on the new track.

Each race series has 10 participants. Each participant will drive exactly 5 races, and the results from all five races are counted. This means that every race counts. One bad result can ruin your complete series, as you have no chance to improve that result in a later race.

Only career races count for a race series, if you drive a custom race before completing 5 career races, that custom race will not be taken into the calculation.

The series overview shows the results for all 10 teams and gives the current standing.

There is one category in the Hall of Fame for the most successful race series contestants.


Rewards

On the right side of the race series screen you will see the rewards you can receive from the race series. You can earn XP, credits and STARS.

Rewards for a race series depend on your racing class. The higher the class, the higher the rewards will be.



Hint: You can participate in a season, race series and custom races at the same time. This means that you can collect rewards from different competitions for the same race!
