At the moment of race start the pointer of the rev counter must be blue. Just give some power before starting to see where the pointer turns blue to get a feel of how much power you must give.

The blue zone changes from car to car, afaik, so you'll need to adapt.

The pointer isn't blue in the screenshot because the pointer only turns blue before the race starts. –  badp Jul 31 '10 at 17:36

Just accelerate the car and leave acceleration when the second countdown reaches to mid-point of your screen, and then accelerate twice...

You'll then make a prefect launch...

During the countdown, between the numbers "2" and "1", give acceleration to the car to get perfect launch.

When you accelerate, the pointer in the nitrous bar moves. If you release the acceleration the pointer comes back to its first (middle) position. You need to make the pointer come back to the middle position, just before the end of the countdown and at the same time you have to accelerate again.
