The City Outskirts comprise a combat racing track used in the Kras City Grand Championship during Jak X: Combat Racing. One of the more difficult combined courses in the championship, this track uses both Forbidden Jungle's ruined temple section and the more modern part of Haven City's streets, hence it has many sharp turns and few clear straightaways. This track is most memorable for the massive active volcano setpiece, with flowing lava being an actual threat to racers on the track.


City Outskirts 1

The City Outskirts.

The race begins atop a broken bridge off the coast of a jungle. Make the jump over the light blue water below and land on the sand and proceed into a tunnel ahead. The tunnel ends shortly and leads the racers abruptly into the New Haven section of Haven City. Avoid any protruding sections of buildings and walls as you make your way up and down the curving slopes and roads. Eventually the track veers off again and takes you through a narrow canyon, where there is little road here to maneuver out of harm's way, though the same can be said for your rivals.

The canyon opens to a grand view of the aforementioned volcano, still active with red-hot lava flowing down its surface. Cross the nearby bridge, a relatively safe path, and head onto the dirt road curving around the deadly mountain. The track will be covered with lava here and there, which deals low damage over time and is simply unavoidable for the majority of this part of the course. There will, however, be extra green eco pick-ups around, so make sure to grab any before another driver takes it.

City Outskirts 2

The volcano.

After the lava, the course briefly returns to the canyon, but only before entering the Forbidden Jungle portion, starting at the narrow flooded tunnel. The tunnel ends with an open drop over a small lake. Make sure to take it straight and avoid crashing into the stone snake-heads spouting forth water in midair. A little further ahead is another stone temple; enter it and you will return at the finish line after a few more curving corners.
