Stephane is a character in Midnight Club II.
Stephane is the fourth challenger the will greet whilst in Paris. He is usually found cruising near the building opposite of the Eiffel Tower, only notable for its large fountain. By flashing the headlights, he will lead the player to a freeway exit ramp, near the Arc de Triomphe.
In Stephane's first race, entitled Roundabout Run, the player faces the likes of him and five other racers in an unordered race. The single obstacle that the player may want to avoid would be the speeding Ambulance located near the Montmartre district, heading south of the roundabout. The police is also prominent in this race. The race ends at the bottom of the large stairwell belonging to the Sacre Coeur Cathedral.
In Stephane's second and final race, titled Over and Under, the player faces Stephane and five other racers. The obstacles on this course are numerous and can easily thwart the entire race. The first obstacle that comes into view is the futuristic train-like structure that travels along the tracks to the left of the Sacre Coeur. The second obstacle involves a mid-sized sedan making a sharp turn down one of the steep pathways. The next obstacle would be the beginning of a errant police presence, which includes one pursuing squad car and a few stationary cars acting as roadblocks. The following hazard occurs much later, near the alleyway across the exit from the underground tunnel, where a pursuing police car is seen. The race ends on the freeway, where access is permitted though a brief alleyway leading off to a gas station.
With much regret and despair, Stephane then forks over his Alarde.
In both races, it's best if the player follows Stephane and nitro boosts him at the final stretch.
