am i really not getting it or is hovis tough to beat in the race? i cant even get my ship around the course, let alone beat the guy. i always miss the 7t or 8th ring (i can't remember which), at cruise speed, its at too sharp of an angle for me to make it through. i dont think i'm terrible at the game, but this part really has me frustrated. is there anything i'm missing? any help would be appreciated.

The spoiler forum has a few ideas, though I favor using my thruster rather than the cruise engine.

Are you using any mods? If you're using the unmodded game, you shouldn't have too much difficulty. Trick is to anticipate the next gate, set yourself up to get through it. Remember, you don't have to go through the middle, you can hug the "corners" of it as well. Best I can give you is to look two gates ahead of you. Also remember that Hovis is ahead of you most of the time. Relax, you will catch up with him toward the end. Avoid exaggerated movements as well, make slow steady turns and don't sway away trying to go straight through. If you're using a modded version, and the cruise speed is increased, then you'll have to use thrusters instead.
