K-Drive Races are free roam missions for the Ventkids that are run by Boon in the Orb Vallis. The goal of each race is to pass through as many gates as possible while mounting a K-Drive and then reach the final gate within a time limit. Completing the race will earn the player Standing for the Ventkids.
There are 22 races scattered across the Orb Vallis, however only 5 are active at a time. The active races refresh daily, at the same time as Daily Tribute and Standing limits. If you have built a custom K-Drive, you can check the currently-available races by mounting it and then opening the map, but a custom K-Drive is not necessary for competing in the races.
Starting a race costs 5 for each gate in the race and will reward 200 for each gate if completed successfully. For example, the race "The Hard Way" behind Fortuna consists of 10 gates so entering will cost 50 and will reward 2,000 when finished.
Every gate grants 500 K-Drive Affinity and 5 seconds to the race time limit when passed, and the final gate grant 2500 K-Drive Affinity.
|Name||Number of Gates||Ventkids Standing||K-Drive Affinity|
|Bomb the Spaceport||17||3,400||10,500|
|Breakdown or Bust||15||3,000||9,500|
|Grinding the Void||25||5,000||14,500|
|Lord of the Board||24||4,800||14,000|
|Meat and Greet||25||5,000||14,500|
|The Hard Way||10||2,000||7,000|
- Completing all 22 races will grant you the Race Ace achievement.
- It is possible to complete constant races by ignoring the other gates and beelining for the final gate. However, players will obtain lesser K-Drive Affinity and VentKids Standing that way.
