This one was surprisingly hard for me. I just can`t handle that car.

Was going for this and although I already had a distinction for Interceptor and Rapid Response, only a merit was needed for Hot Pursuit to get the achievement :)

I disagree with "Guided Missle". I found it was easier to do on "Coming in Hot." Pretty Hard to do, due to it's sloppy handling.

Well you guys are lucky.. I got distinction on the rapid response and the interceptor than just merit on the hot pursuit and no achievement. So I did have to get Distinction on all three of them.

You have to do hot pursuit last for that to happen.

here is a good tip
If you already have distintion in the event you are doing
you will get awarded the distinction even if you get bronze in the
hot pursuit with the audi.

I already had it gold and got spiked & wrecked with 2 racers to still kill
on run to the hills and it still gave me the acheivment.
this has happened on one of the other ones too.
must be a glitch take advantage of it before they patch it up

i know this might be blatantly obvious and slaps you in the face but i didn't realize until I had done the them as a racer, This is actually a cop achievement.

Stupid me I know.

the hardest one for me was "run to the hills" took like 5 tries of getting 6 out of the 7 and finally got the last racer with less than half a mile left.

I did these ones as suggested...

Fox Lair Pass - Under Pressure (Interceptor)
Carson Ridge Reservoir - Guided Missile (Rapid Response)
East Gorge Canyon - Run the Hills (Hot Pursuit)

I'd never raced in the Audi before at all prior to these. Got Distinction in the Interceptor and Rapid Response. Did the Hot Pursuit...took out 3 racers before wrecking myself and up popped the cheevo!

Cheers to Swonely, Coming In Hot did the trick. not only was the course easier than Guided Missle, it's also much shorter, which came in handy seeing as how this took me a few tries. I ended up beating the distinction time by 10-12 seconds, and thats after 3 time penalties for hitting walls.
