GTA RaceEdit

"Dominate competitors in an all out war to the finish. Race and fight your way through the checkpoints in order and then hit the finish. You can only hold one drive-by weapon at a time, hold (which-ever button described ingame)to drop your currently selected weapon when in an vehicle."
―Ingame Description

A GTA Race is essentially the same as a normal Race, but the competitors may use weapons to kill or slow down the competition. Players may also exit and enter other vehicles. There are two additional features for a GTA Race, including which weapons will spawn on the track (All Weapons, Off, Health Only, Pistols, Shotguns, SMGs, All Guns or Guns & Grenades) and Auto-Aim (Allow or Disallow). The Rocket Launcher and Molotov Cocktails also appear, but only on the "All Weapons" setting.

If somoeone dies in a GTA Race, he/she will respawn near the last completed Checkpoint on foot, next to a Faggio.

However, these races can be very cheap and turn into impromptu Deathmatches, as other players often block off the road near a weapon location and spawn kill many players, often getting more money than the winner of the race. Also, these players will be armed and protecting a checkpoint for a long period of time, interrupting everyone who would try to pass.
