Welcome to my first guide :)

Roadmap

General driving tips:
- Push the analog stick very gentle in corners. You'll lose lots of speed when you oversteer (you're doing it wrong when your controller vibrates)
- Try to overtake your opponents on straightaways. Overtaking in corners is risky because one touch of your opponent is enough to spin your car around.
- Play at easy difficulty since it doesn't affect any achievement.

Step 1: Career Mode

The career mode takes quite some time and gets boring very quickly.
You have to participate in every race of every season to get the "Complete" achievement for every year.
You don't have to win every race - it's enough to be in the top 3 at the end of the season. To save time, you can skip the qualification run on every track and start at the back of the grid except Indianapolis 500.

Always buy the newest/best available car setup. You'll have more than enough money to buy every chassis later in your career.

Be sure to get the following achievements during your career progression:


1962: "Barrier Broken" - Get a 150.370 mph qualification average at Indianapolis. This one is not that easy, but very doable with a 1964 rear engine car. An alternative is to go back with a 1971 car once you finished the career mode.
1962 or 1963: "Station No. VI" - Win the Indy 500 race with a 1963 Novi engine (you need a front engine chassis for this engine)
1966: "Rocketman" - Win the Indy 500 race with a turbine powered car. Easy enough, just buy the "1967 Granatelli (Turbine)" and win the race.
1970: "The Full Set" - Buy every chassis you're still missing in your collection
1971: "A Not So "Quick Race" - This is a good opportunity to finish the boring 200 lap Indy race.


Step 2: Yearbook Challenges

In the Yearbook Challenge mode, you have to finish cerain tasks like overtaking 5 opponents or beating a qualification average speed.
Most of the challenges are quite easy. But be aware that full damage is turned on on all of them.

The hardest challenge is "1962 - Parnelli Puts it on Pole!". I suggest you save this one until you've beaten the rest.

Getting gold in all challenges is by far the most difficult achievement in the game.

Step 3: Multiplayer

Find two friends to boost with and create a 10 lap race. Langhorne is the shortest track in the game.
Just one win for each of you is needed to get the last two achievements.

Take the pole at the Indianapolis 500

Get the fastest qualification average speed in a Indianapolis 500 qualification.
You'll have a lot of chances to get this one since you need to qualify every year in the career mode (unlike the other races, you can't skip the Indianapolis qualification because it will not allow you to start at the back of the grid).


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/614/+Dwtjw==.jpgBarrier Broken - 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Beat Parnelli Jones' 150.370 mph qualification average at Indianapolis in 1962 (Career)

This one is not that easy. You have to race 4 perfect laps in the 1962 Indianapolis qualification.
My setup: 1963 Lotus rear engine chassis, 1963 Ford rear mounted engine, 1963 5 speed rear mounted gearbox.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/614/+Dwtjw==.jpgRocketman - 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win the Indianapolis 500 in a turbine powered car

You can do this one in quick race or wait until you can buy either the "1967 Granatelli (Turbine)" or the "1968 Lotus (Turbine)" special car in career mode and win the Indianapolis 500 race with it.

Cars to use in quick race:
Year: 1967 - Car: Granatelli - Parnelli Jones
or
Year: 1968 - Car: Lotus - Joe Leonard / Art Pollard / Graham Hill

Putting Self-explanatory in a guide is the worst thing you can possible write. Put more detail into the guide there is only descriptions for like 5 Achievements.

There's really no need to describe achievements like "Win your first race" or "Win at track X" since you get all of them in your first career year.

I believe it is 60 percent of ALL the drivers not just the current year. Some drivers don't begin to enter races until the mid to late sixties (i.e. Wally Dallenbach, Gordon Johncock) I didn't get this one until year 1966

Yeah it wasnt until I had 40 drivers respect me til i got the achievement. But i finally got it. Now I am having problems witht he yearbook missions. I just want Bronze on all of them and I cant for the life of me even pass one car in "Pack Racing" I might just have to leave this game at 900/1000
