: While the zone is identical, it is played in reverse compared to the retail release (start and finish were swapped around).
: This zone starts on a previous stretch of highway compared to the retail release (its finish is located where the retail zone starts).
: The car hovers over the ground then slowly sinks under the map, making this zone unplayable.
