Can't help with a transfer.
Tip on the race. Use Don't try to get ahead in the start.
Drive cross country to the pylons. On the twisty road you 'beat' the others by driving off the road directly to the plyons on the twist-back portion. They have to stay on the pavement you don't. That's where you get the lead.
This race is exactly the same path you took in Wu Zi Mu, inreverse.
As in all races avoid contact with the other drivers.
Go fast on the straights, slow and brake (skid aruound the turns).
If you can learn to not use the brakes you can go faster.
