Tommy, Ken and Phil are all in the club, with Tommy saying that the heist plan is coming together nicely, and the only thing left to do is to hire a driver. Ken suggests himself, but Phil suggests Hilary King, describing him as a great driver. Phil calls Hilary, and asks if he can offer his services to Tommy. He says yes, but only if Tommy beats him in a race.
Tommy goes outside to Hilary, who is inside his Sabre Turbo. He explains that if Tommy loses to him, he will not work for Tommy. Tommy then gets inside a Sentinel and races against Hilary. He passes through all checkpoints scattered around Vice Beach, all while being chased by the police for illegal racing. Later on, he eventually passes the finish line first, and Hilary agrees to work for him.
Hey Hil, it's Phil. How's it going? No, don't talk, we'll reminisce later. You want to do me a favor? I got me a guy from up north. No, no, I don't think he was in the service, but he wants a driver, for a bit of action. Okay, I understand.
Well, he'll do it, no problem. Well, there might be a little problem - see, he has abandonment issues. Seems he won't work for anyone who can't beat him, something to do with his momma. Anyway, he wants to race you first, said he'd meet you outside.
You Tommy? Oh, of course you're Tommy, I mean...why else would anyone want to speak to me? OK, consider it this way - I'll drive for you if, and only if, you can drive properly. Leave me alone - and I'll never forgive you.
Tommy, Ken and Phil are all gathered in the back office of the Malibu Club in Vice Point. Tommy says that the preparation process for the job he has planned is going quite nicely so far.
Ken, once again high on coke, is very obnoxious and asks Tommy what's the plan.
Tommy is bothered by Ken's obnoxiousness and tells him to calm down. He then says that they need a getaway driver for after they carry out the job.

Tommy approaches Hilary outside of the Malibu Club, who's waiting for Tommy in his Sabre Turbo. Hilary notices Tommy and asks him if he's who Hilary thinks he is.
Hilary tells Tommy that before he commits to anything, Hilary wants to race Tommy and see if he can at least drive properly himself.
Tommy and Hilary stare each other down before the race begins.
The race begins and Tommy is immediately having to struggle against the faster Sabre Turbo.
