choose the very last race in the game, the eliminator race on Nurburgring.
Choose the Ferrari F50 GT as your car, and choose the Novice difficulty.
When the race starts, get past the starting line, then let the competition get a head of
you a little bit.
Pull over to one side of the track, and with the stick steered staright to the opposite
side, lay on the gass.
Be careful of the walls, and if you do it right you should pull of a 360 without too much
effort.
Straighten out and go through the first turn with as much speed as you can.
Coming up there is a chicane which would normally have you veering off to the left.
Instead, barrel straight through over the the bit of concrete that leads in to the grass,
with enouh speed,
you should be able to pull air here, which puts another of the more difficult maneuvers
to bed.
It should be noted that going the wrong way down the track will never hurt you,
so no need to restart if you see the "wrong way" text.
On subsequent laps, you can also try going just off the slide of the concrete or
ebraking to go off of it sideways in order to get the 2 wheels maneuver.
This is tricky though and not 100% reliable. There's another section one turn later
that has the red and white guard bumps in the middle of some asphalt.
If you go wide to the left outside the bouds of the real track, and come at those guard
bumps with enough speed,
there's another opportunity for a 2 wheels maneuver there.
After that, the race becomes all about cathing up with the other cars and doing all the
drift Kudos, which are much easier.
Catching up with the other cars is almost too easy on the novice difficulty,
you should be able to catch up with them even before the first lap is done.
When you do, make sure to get some quick drafting points, but avoid contact with them if
possible
(you need the clean race achievement and bumping in to them won't help you out).
After that, you just need to get all the drifting maneuvers, which are as follows (thanks
to megasnake on the GS forums):

Drift
E-Brake Slide (using the handbrake to slide)
Feint Drift (when the turn comes up,
steer in the opposite direction of the turn shortly then
suddenly turn the wheel to the right direction at full force to make the car's weight
shift slide the car in order to make the corner)
Braking Drift (use the brakes to slide)
Power Over (slide through a corner using your cars rev power to create a slide, so
basicly overuse the gas to slide)
Power Feint (combination of feint drift and power over ,
best done by releasing gas in front a corner doing the feint drift and apply a lot of gas
while turning the wheel)
Braking Feint ( apply the power feint manouver but instead of gas use brake ,
hard to pull off because the game will often see it as braking drift instead)
Braking Power Over ( approach a corner much to fast ,
then just infront of the corner release the gas , AFTER THAT just hit the brakes hard
while manouvering your car through the corner)

You can pause the game during the race to check off maneuvers as you get them,
I found this pretty helpful to get me focused on the doing the right maneuvers to get all
of them.
Assuming you get the 2 wheels maneuver and manage to not hit any walls, the rest will be
fairly straightforward.
You'll pick up the clean race, fast lap, overtake, etc
along the way and you can finally claim your "All Kudos in One Race" badge and the Style
Racer achievement! Woo!
