There are several tips, but the answers here don’t allow for much. Think of Asphalt 8 as a realistic answer to Mario Kart. There is more than just a way to defeat your opponents. Without further ado, here we go:

Block your opponents

It’s not rocket science. It is a race, and when you’ve got pole position, all you can really do is to keep your position by making sure that your opponents are left behind in the dust. The way to properly do this is to really block their way before you go for the nitro to leave them behind.

Don’t get knocked yourself

There are other cars, of course, and as much as you’re blocking their way, they’re out to block YOUR way. No one’s here to make friends, so to make sure that you’re the one making progress, avoid their efforts to block you and do it the other way around.

Familiarize yourself with your surroundings

This means that you should know which tracks you excel in, and which tracks you don’t. How do you know this? By knowing which shortcuts to take on a given track, you’re giving yourself more of a chance to win instead of making your opponent overtake you.

Don’t Drive with Nitro

While Nitro can be good for many things, including getting ahead, it isn’t good to drive with it at full speed. You should wait for a situation when you should use it. Whenever your bar is full, seize the opportunity when the timing is right, otherwise you’ll be using it to catch up instead of to get ahead of the race for good.
