Grand Theft Auto 5: Getting Gold in the Airport Race Mission in Story Mode

Are you struggling to get gold in the airport race mission on Grand Theft Auto 5’s story mode? Look no further. We’ve got you covered with some tips and tricks to help you achieve that coveted gold medal.

Introduction to Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto 5, also known as GTA 5 or GTA V, is a massively popular video game with an abundance of content and updates from the developers at Rockstar. With its extensive open world and various missions, the game has something to offer for virtually any type of gamer.

Hao’s Street Races in GTA V

One of the many features offered in GTA V are the street races available from a character named Hao. These races take place overnight between 8 PM and 5 AM, and are a fun way to earn some extra cash and increase your driving skills.

Unlocking the Airport Race

To unlock the airport race, you must first complete and win the city circuit race. Once you’ve accomplished this, you should receive a message from Hao inviting you to participate in the airport race. However, if you find that the airport race is not showing up for you, check out the video linked in the description for a way to unbug the mission.

Preparing for the Airport Race

Before entering the airport race, it’s important to ensure that you’ve maxed out Franklin’s ability. This can be done by passing very close to other vehicles while driving quickly. Once you’re ready to race, simply hit the marker on the right-hand side of the guys at the airport and pay the $1000 entry fee.

The Airport Race, and How to Win Gold

The airport race is a little challenging on a keyboard and mouse, but getting gold is relatively straightforward once you’ve got the hang of it. Your main objective is to win the race, and the best way to do this is by utilizing Franklin’s ability to keep yourself lined up and boost your way around corners as much as possible.

As you race around the airport circuit, keep an eye out for major turns that require the use of Franklin’s ability to stay on track. Avoid collisions and take advantage of traffic to charge up your ability when necessary. Remember that it’s okay to make some mistakes, as long as you’re able to make up for lost time in the later stages of the race.

the hang of it but it can be a little challenging on a keyboard mouse to get gold in this one we’ll
simply need to win the race so at some point early game you’ll receive a message from how
inviting you to a race these races are available overnight between 8 p.m and 5 a.m now on the
way to the race it’s important that you max out franklin’s ability you can do this by passing very
close to other vehicles while driving quickly now if you’re not receiving the airport race
having completed and won the city circuit race that’s okay check out the video linked top right
or in the description below for a way to unbug the airport race so let’s pick it up as we’re pulling
up to the race you can see the guys there on the right hand side just uh hit the little marker and
that’ll cost you a thousand dollars and will line up for the start back in the blister compact again
this one is absolutely stock as a rock it is one of my favorite little compact cars but i
wanted to use this instead of one of the big big sports cars to show that it can be done so great
start there very happy with that and i’ve gone the wrong direction but that’s okay so as with
previous races what we’re going to do here is every time we hit a turn or we get ourselves a
little squirrelly or unstuck we’re going to use franklin’s ability to essentially keep ourselves
lined up and boost our way around the corners and that’s not helpful but even at this stage
that’s okay that’s probably yeah that’s not ideal dropping back to fourth so early
on but that’s okay we’ll actually make it up in the first major turn
keep lining up and if you find yourself getting bumps jostled or you become unstuck just drop into
franklin’s ability and of course as you go around corners now that has taken us from i think it was
fifth oh that wasn’t a good term but that’s okay we’re still good that took us from fifth to first
and we still have made a massive jump on the other competitors so we’ll hit round the corner here
again using franklin’s ability as much as possible although we are getting a little low so what we
need to do is find some traffic and there you go drive really close and that very much helps charge
it back up and you can see even that little prang and a few close calls and we’re back up to full
charge so we are good to go now on the straights i wouldn’t worry about it too much unless you
get a little bit floaty and a bit tightly but otherwise we’ll just wait for the next turn and
then drop into franklin’s ability again and off we go so the airport circuit’s pretty easy it’s
just a few laps around no major major turns and you can even get around this top turn as long as
you haven’t got too much traffic without having to use any abilities but still go absolutely flat out
so that was a quick lap only uh what was in a minute and a bit
and missed the barrier this time which was always nice there we go i only just missed it too but
it’s okay so we’re coming up on one of our next major turns so we’ll get around this traffic here
and then drop into franklin’s ability and we get that’s where it can really pick up
some extra pace and another major turn coming up here so we’ll just thread this through in
between those two posts and away we go and here’s where we really make up more unless i prang it
where i would hope we’d normally make up some extra time but that’s okay we still
have enough of a lead that it’s not a problem so you can make some solid mistakes here and
there’s no dramas whatsoever because we will absolutely smash it through these back streets
so you can see we are going absolutely flat out completely sending it bit squirrelly so just drop
back into franklin’s ability again and off we go and now we can just send it all the way back
all right coming up on the last thing and just to take out a stubby bowl for the fun of it
through we go not quite as much of a lead as i would have liked this
time around but we still absolutely smashed it at 257 for the entire race
and got first so that’s gold again very happy with that so what are your thoughts do you have
any tips for other viewers or could this have been done differently leave your comments down
below and check out the video on the left for the next race or the one on the right for some
