Your opinions, achiev tips, complaints are welcome.
Sorry for my english language, I will correct my mistakes later. I am not from UK or US.

a. Learn how to drive in the WRC Rally School for the practice and for the best results.
b. If you want the fastest and the easiest way to get achievs, set in the options the AI difficulty to medium or easy.
c. Before race try to choose the best car setting presets (mostly you will get it automatically) or try to find out which is best for you for surface in which you will be racing and set it manualy.
(SSS stages - Handling about two points to right, Gearbox - to right to the max)
d. Some achievs require only the WRC cars. Take a practice with them.

Thanks for the great guide.

12-04-2011, 09:15 PM
Good guide, not many players of this underrated game - so thanks for putting in the effort with this guide.

12-13-2011, 12:35 PM
That's really useful. Since career mode is quite long, it's good to know roughly what season I can expect to unlock some of the achievements in. Nice one.

12-15-2011, 10:24 PM
I corrected some of my mistakes and I added some new achievs and hints.
Next time I will try to create and add some stategy guide for ,,The Road to the WRC ,, mode.
I hope it will helps you. :woop:

This is a great help :)

Are you able to complete the "Road to WRC" with shortened rallies and still get "Grand Slam" achievement?

Have completed it before, career to 100% and all golds, but did not give me "Grand Slam" achievement. I am now going through it a second time hoping achievement pops this time.

I am wondering if it may because I shortened rallies. I may have also lost events in very first year before starting in "Road to WRC" and could not go back to them.

12-29-2011, 11:53 PM
Looks like i'm heading for the same problem as i quit some rallies early when i had enough points to win the event.

However i've found a way to pin point which rallies you need to win which may help.

If you go into offline stats and hall of fame this will tell you how many rallies you need to win. eg raced 215 won 205, so missing 10.

Go back into offline stats and click the other 'icon' stage times. At the bottom a slider will display how many times you have won each rally and if you select each stage it will tell you how many times you have raced & won this stage.
This gives you the info of the rally / stages you didn't win and need to re-do.

You can check this in the road to wrc by pressing 'LB' over a rally you need to re-do to see if it has the stages you didn't win.

I'm not 100% sure this is going to work as i came 3rd in rally GB (the last 1 of 13). The only way to do this is to replay throu the other 12 rallies 1st. Which i'm not prepared to do as i missed other rallies in previous seasons as well, so i'm going to quit the other 12 rallies (as you can't skip them) and this may also count as not winning each event.

Hope this helps.

Very usefull, Thanks. It helped me with some problems I had.
However... the New Born ach is another problem. Since i've been trying to respawn nothing happens. no matter how many times i hit the RB.... It just doesn't seem to work...
Some help with this would be great ;-)

01-02-2012, 08:42 PM
New born achiev... If you have to be properly respawned in the race , go very slow or stop the car and then hold the RB button. If you did many respawns and nothing happens... First , check in My WRC the statistic, the count of your respawns. Then, try this ...Single player > Single stage > choose only the WRC cars > choose track. Race , do many respawns and finish race normally(no retire, no early exit). Be sure, after finish, the game saves itself. Check once again in My WRC (in the statistics) if count of your respawns goes up. If yes, do the same again. If not ,choose single rally or championship with WRC cars and be sure the game saves itself after race. The respawns (for achiev New born) don't count if you play online races.

01-04-2012, 09:44 AM
New Born ach...
OK got it ;-) stupid mistake made by me, I thought if I just hit the RB it will respawn... Didn't know I had to hold it until the screen flashes :D

01-04-2012, 12:53 PM
Seems that just completing all challenges isn't enough for The Perfect Storm. My guess would be that you need to beat the ghost on all challenges. I haven't done this, although I did complete all the challenges and have Ace of the Race

01-04-2012, 02:05 PM
Had the same thought. You need to beat the ghost and you'll recieve a crown on that 'lesson'. Noticed it earlier today and I'm on pursuit for my last crown ;-)

guide needs to be updated ;-)

01-08-2012, 10:34 AM
previous reply had some flaws;-)
The perfect storm ach is rewarded not after getting the 18 crowns as i said before, but when you 'mastered' all the lessons. I noticed this when i saw i had all the crowns, but didn't master 2 lessons, so after mastering them i was rewarded the ach.

Hope this clears a lot ;-)

01-11-2012, 10:11 AM
I did another corrections of my mistakes and I add some new info to the achievs.
I finished the Road to WRC only with shortened rallies (Championships too) and I got all carrier achievs on the first try, mostly. I raced and I won all the events (1st places) without exceptions. (no retiring, no 2nd places and less in the events)
I hope it will help you. :woop:

01-30-2012, 01:58 PM
thanks for the guide simple but effective and there is always you tube lol

02-20-2012, 01:49 PM
Is number of season durring career fixed like in last Superbike games? I made a mistake and moved to one of further rally programs but wasn't able to enter all events beacues too low rep. If thare is max number of seasons it's better for me to start whole career from beginning.

02-24-2012, 12:07 AM
No, the number of seasons is not fixed. You can repeat any of them if you didn't manage to win all events on your first try.

03-21-2012, 10:02 PM
Thanks for the guide was really helpful

07-23-2012, 11:24 PM
Can anyone confirm is it possible to skip some of the events to rip through the seasons to get some of the achieves?
