Points can be spent on new, faster cars among other things

When playing as Racer you can spend all gathered speedpoints (SP) on three main things:

1) Buying new cars - subsequent cars are unlocked as gaining ranks and good news is that most of them are not too expensive. For example a good car which can help you to win most of the initial races can be bought for less than 50 thousand points. Still, I would advise not to exaggerate and not to seek to acquire all vehicles because you won't gain much. It is best to decide to buy the next car only after the game unlocked several new models.

2) Modifying owned vehicles - my advice is to completely ignore the purely visual modifications (stickers, etc.). Invest only in mechanical modifications but also do not be too "extravagant" here. It is not a good idea to spend a fortune to maximally improve one of the weakest cars in the game because you won't make it a machine capable to compete with best cars. In addition it is good to buy only those modifications which are connected with the possible usage of the car. For example if the given car will be used mainly in time trials, it would be good to improve its maximum speed and acceleration.

3) Buying pursuit technologies - each car can have two technologies mounted and although initially they do not absorb a large part of your budget, further on this will change, unfortunately. First of all, newly unlocked modifications are more expensive. Second - new generations of current technologies appear and if you want for example to install 3rd generation turbo, you have to first buy generation 1 and 2. So, be wise when buying those things, mounting only such modifications which you need and unlocking new generations of technologies which are most usable.

In conclusion, if you want to make a reasonable compromise between the amount of gathered points and further progress in your career, do not overdo with too frequent purchases of new cars, modifications and pursuit technologies. Personally I recommend to "go shopping" in fairly large intervals (once for few career chapters for example), deciding each time to buy only one new car and then modifying it according to its planning usage.
