I'm ridiculously annoyed with this achievement. I have all of the achievements for DiRT other than this one and DiRT 2 is about to come out. I'm at ~1100 miles but I have no way of knowing how many online or tournament race miles I've done... ARG!

Driving off the road in Pike's Peak worked great for me.

-Insert something creative here-
( that doesn't include stats that no one really cares about or some poorly photoshop'd image with your name stuck in it. )

That's a good call on the sleep play. I have a few hundred miles to go. I have done everything else legit so I may end up doing this last one on my own too, but at the same time, there are just so many things to play on my backlog that I may sleep it so I can focus on others. At this rate, I should finish playing my backlog by the time the Xbox 720 comes out

Similar Run

I just got my 1000 miles achievement (last one I needed) and I did it by going on Pikes Peak, but just before the 2nd to last 180 turn, I would drive that straight away up and down.... over and over and over. I used my fastest car and I think I did about a total of 5-6 30-50 minute runs. NOTE: I had already run through the career once so I had about less than 500 miles under my belt. Glad to finally be finished with this!

Works a treat if you can restart at the right spot. You want to be able to go off the road just to the left of the long fence and restart about 100m back in the same line, not so you will hit the fence straight ahead or restart further ahead at the side of the fence.

I hit 65mph and clocked about 400 miles in 10 hours.

I'm sitting at about 1269 right now, hoping to get it soon. I keep racing the 12.4 mi race over and over.

EDIT - Finally got it at 1321 mi.

Thanks to Gackt for the awesome sig!

I just beat the career twice. It wasn't that bad just time consuming.
