any way to beat the racing mission?
I am on the second junkyard mission where you have to race on normal but i see no way to beat it, whenever you get to a gate with turrets they completely tear apart your armor and integrity. Even after you get past one at the most you have 1 bar of integrity left so even a stray shot from one of the racers will kill you. I also tried with a bunch of repair kits but the turrets chew them up as well. Does anyone have a way to get passed this?

You are unlucky. I didn`t have any problem with this mission. Just fly ASAP with the afterburner. I know its easy to win even with Power Cell Engine lvl 3. Dont try to kill the turrets, just fly fly fly. Sometiems you dont need to follow the autogps path, you can use shortcuts (in open space, i am not talking about racing INSIDE the asteroid)

Approach the gate from proper angle so they cannot fire at you ...

They can shoot me from almost every angle axcept if I approach the gate from behind, and I've only got the first power cell engine since all the others are way too expensive

You can find a better engine at Barth's Moon in a secret chamber

Go to the Asteroid Research Complex. Kill the handful of enemies there. Mine all the helium you want and sell it to the conveniently located merchants. You will make enough money to buy a Power Cells 3 engine with a single inventory load of helium, and it takes you maybe 10 minutes. While you're at it consider buying some better armor and upgrading to cannons.

I can't leave the sector now that the mission has started but i found out you could run the course before the race started and destroy all the turrets and mines that are in your way

I got to the last checkpoint in the lead, then my FPS committed suicide, and the next thing I know the game said I lost :P

Turbo, shooting turrets, or approaching at a different angle

few (read 3) shots from a standard missile launcher and standard missiles can destroy these turrets... also stock up on repair kits, they literally increase the amount of damage you can take
