Apparently this is a destruction-derby type of thing where you smash your car up in all kinds of different ways. My Xbox-owning friend was quite obsessed with one of the events in particular, and that's all I remember seeing.
 
In this event, you drive off a jump, hit some kind of turbo boost right before you leave the lip, and then hit another button to jettison your driver straight forward through the windshield like a bullet. The driver flies improbably far, alost floatng casually through the air, and, if you aimed right (harder than it sounds, since control is incredibly floaty), lands tangled and limp in a net, where the higher they land, the bigger your score.
 
And, uh, yeah. Can't say I was enamored either with the theme or the gameplay in that particular event. Maybe there are others that are almost worthwhile? I suppose I'll probably never know.
