Achievement Guide

Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
-Offline: 47 (940)
-Online: 3 (60)
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 10-15 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 4
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Glitched achievements: None!
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No Cheats

Fairly simple game, may take you a while to get used to the stiff handling but easy overrall, once you learn the layouts of the courses (10 in all) you'll be shortcutting your way to victory in no time. Be sure to turn off Penalties whilst in the main menu to save a lot of hassle.

ALSO: Please note most of the achievements won't unlock until your back at the setup screen, usually when you see "prize unlocked" is where they will unlock.

Step 1: Quick Races
Do the various achievements for single races on tracks and using certain teams/drivers, aswell as the one for going through a full weekend to pick up a fair few small achievements.

Step 2: Challenges
Would be a good idea to get these out of the way, they aren't too challenging and you will probably spend more time on the loading screen than actually doing the races, beware that penalties do count on these.

Step 3: Championships
Start off on easy, 1 lap races, using Morbidelli or Ascani, make sure you SKIP PRE-SESSIONS USING Y ONLY! Don't skip through the schedule, as it will void certain other achievements. Make sure you get pole position for at least 8 races and try to win every race, for two other achievements. Once this playthrough is done, do it again using the other driver mentioned (if you do the 2nd one on HARD, it will save time later).

Then move onto the Medium difficulty Championship, using the CAAL Racing team, win this for another achievement.

After this you will want to playthrough on Legendary using Ghedina, to nab two achievements. You will still need to complete a Championship in Hard mode however, so as to get all the prizes.

Play through on Hard mode, using whichever driver you have decided to get your distance achievements using.

Step 4: Training Mode
By now your probably bored of this game, now to goto the training area and grind these 3 achievements, the on for 15 laps is dodgy, and INVALID LAPS DON'T COUNT, so stay within the road. Use your distance racer for more miles on his clock.

Step 5: Online and mop up
Get a boosting partner using this thread, then setup a custom race, 1 lap, 2 participants with 1 private slot, shouldn't take longer than 20 minutes.

Any other achievements should be gotten now, the 50 races should be there or close, as should the 400km, use your chosen racer to grind out some more distance.

Also check your prizes in the extras menu, this will let you know other things you may have missed.


The first stage of the podium5 Win your first race.

Simple enough, easy difficulty, 1 lap, any circuit, Ascari would be a good driver, as its required to use him in Championship and thus will go towards your 400km achievement.

The roar of the Jaguar5 Win a race using one of the Jaguars of the Ferlito Motors Team.

Same deal, 1 lap easy difficulty, this time using the Ferlito Jaguar.

Girl Power5 Win a race using Maria De Villota.

Same deal again, recommend Varano, very quick track and easily beatable with the shortcuts.

Race of Good Hope5 Win a race on Kyalami with Francesco Ascani.

Keep going with these

It's raining cats and...Jaguars?5 Win a race on Magione with wet weather using one of the Ferlito Motors Jaguars.

Change weather to Wet in the settings, and brake a little earlier than normal to compensate, don't oversteer!

The sunny side of the street5 Win a race on Valencia on sunny weather using the SSantucci Motorsport Mustard.

Slower acceleration, so i suggest moving ahead of the 2nd starter and keeping an eye on the first straight, should be a breeze.


The rainy side of the street5 Win a race with wet weather in any game mode.

See 'Its raining cats and... Jaguars'

The driver more than the car25 Win at least a race with every team in the game.

You can keep track of this in the rewards section, from the main menu 'Extras', fairly simple, use Varano and make sure its set to easy and pole position

I like simulation10 Win a race in simulation mode at Legend difficulty level.

For this i recommend Monza, as you WILL lose time on corners, but can skip sections of this track, beware Simulation means you spin a lot quicker.

Komodo Dragon10 Win a race in Varano at Hard or Legend difficulty level.

Fairly simple, near the end theres a great place to skip a large chunk of track, make sure penalties are turned off in the menu screen.

Speed Temple10 Win a race on Monza at Legend difficulty level.

Shortcuts will help, but it isn't all that difficult if you start in 1st, just keep an eye on your rear with 'X' and you should be okay.

All roads lead to Rome5 Win a race on Vallelunga Track.

Same drill, the Audi's are probably your best car to use.

Unrivaled10 Win a race with a 15 seconds gap or more from the second place.

Might come in a 1 lap race, if not then use 3 or more and simply skip the sections of track mentioned before on Monza.

Any track, use around 7-10 laps, turn on Wet weather and easy difficulty, then on every turn, hold left trigger and 'A' and turn hard, you will start to skid, keep doing this but make sure you have enough time to catch up the other racers and win.

Superstars® Veteran20 Win at least 10 races.

Will come in time, Championships have 10 races.

The Mascot10 Unlock Secret Trophie.

Win 50 single player races to unlock this, Should come during your Championship run throughs easily enough.

Easy enough, use Y button to skip the practices, qualify in 1st and win, 1 lap, easy, sunny weather, Varano.

Superstars® Record Man30 Win at least 20 races.

Should come on your way to completing your second Championship

The first of a long series5 Complete one of the challenges of the Superstars® Licenses Mode.

Slalom Champion5 Pass the "Chicane" challenge in the Superstars® Licenses Mode.

Easy enough, practice makes perfect in these.

A new danger on the track25 Complete all the Special Trials challenges.

The last one is the only slightly difficult one, try to leave as much gap between you and the 2nd place as that distinguishes Gold and Platinum.

Make sure you skip the pre-sessions by using the Y button to waste the timer, do not skip any other way.

"The only achievements left to get should be:
Turtle Village - 10
Survivor - 20
Perfect Win - 50


These should all be earned in your final playthrough in which you should put the health/lives up to 5 each. I suggest going here again and asking somebody to help you get Perfect Win, and you'll get Turtle Village and Survivor on the way.
Use your buddy to take hits for you and generally protect you, this achievement will come easily if the person protecting you is 'okay' at the game. Meaning, they won't hit you instead of the enemies or head butt you off a cliff.

Conclusion:
I said that the minimum plays is only three but listed six. This is because you can combine each play with each character for different achievements.
For example:
Play one - Barbarian, online.
Play two - Amazonian, local co-op.
Play three - Dwarf, Perfect Win.
That being said, I recommend doing the six plays to get good at the game to prepare for the Perfect Win, you don't want to get on the final boss only to die lots and use a continue. The plays don't take too long and it's a fun game so it won't feel like a chore."


Sorry to double post, but are you sure this relates to this V8 superstars??
It sounds like a completely different game to me....

Quick note about Mr. Pole position.

I got mine during 6th race, in the qualification so I'm sure those count too - not only the main races.

(and Mr. Pole and Brand new Champion does not need to be done in one sitting.)

Another shitass guide for this shitass game. Some tips would be nice. For instance for king of the hourglass saying, beat the track times isn't a fucking guide. It's a statement. Gives some track specific tips, which tracks are the easiest, etc. Fucking useless, this is worse then the ps3t.org guide and that guide's terrible too.
