Grand Prix (abbreviated GP) is an event in Burnout 3: Takedown. It originated in the original Burnout. It consists of three or four races on pre-determined circuits.


A Grand Prix works very similarly to a normal Race event. However, some details have been tweaked to spice up the action. The most immediate difference is that medals aren't awarded until the final race. Instead, at the end of each race the racers are given points for their placings.

Position 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th
Points 6 4 3 2 1 0

Points are carried over into the subsequent races. At the end of the final race, the placings are decided and medals are handed out. The racer that amasses the highest amount of points during the series of races wins the Gold.

Until the Super Grand Prix in Tropical Drive, a Grand Prix is composed of three races. In the Super Grand Prix, the World Grand Prix special event, and the Gold Medal Grand Prix, it is composed of four races.

In the first five Grand Prix, your vehicle choice is limited to any car of the respective classes. In the World Grand Prix, your choice is limited to the US Circuit Racer. In the Gold Medal Grand Prix, your choice is limited to the Euro Circuit Racer.
