Step 1: Single Player World Series Racing

The World Series Racing Career is split into five seasons. As you progress further up the seasons you will be introduced to higher tier cars and new event types. Ultimately you need to win every event in the WSR to unlock You rOCDed. You do not need to take part in the test drives or enter in the vehicle challenges for this achievement, although the vehicle challenges will give a variety in the cars you drive. By earning the You rOCDed achievement, you will have unlocked every secret achievement in the game which are all related through progression of the WSR, this is a total of 12 achievements for 325.

You will unlock Could It Be Magic? between seasons 3-4 assuming you place first in the majority of the events you play until that point. You will also unlock the two achievements; Mo Money, No Problems & Sellout for 45 for completing a total of 20 career sponsor objectives. This will unlock between seasons 3-5 depending on how many you're completing per season. It is a good idea to pick the easier ones to guarantee completion of all of them. You will come across around 30 sponsor objectives in total so this shouldn't be a problem.

Step 2: World Series Racing Clean-up (Timeline)

During this step you'll want to revisit any races that you decided to skip and/or didn't get first place in, using the TimeLine.

Note: If you are replaying a promotional event through the Timeline which you didn't previously win, once you have won the event it will still not be marked with a green tick, but the win will still count towards the achievement.

Step 3: Online Multiplayer
You'll want to start off by completing a global challenge which will unlock One for the Team. When the global challenge timer ends, and you were #1 on your personal weekly leaderboard you will unlock Global Domination. Lastly, you'll need to join one of your rivals which consist of gamers added on racenet and/or people on your friend's list. After joining their session, you must beat them to unlock Keep Your Friends Close....

Now that we took care of the global challenge related achievement, we'll want to focus on doing some online races. Join a racing online playlist, and keep racing until you've taken part in 5 races in a row and also won at least 1 event in order to unlock Social Butterfly and Natural Ability. After earning at least $10,000 in the online mode, you'll want to upgrade your Alfa Romeo in your garage until you bump it into Tier 2 to unlock A Different Class. Make sure to take at least one upgrade off, so that it bounces back down to Tier 1. Now, you'll want to go online again, and I recommend a racing online playlist again, and wait until you get a Tier 1 event. Make sure you race in your upgraded car, and if you win the race, you will get Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

Then make sure you play at least 1 endurance race online, which should range between 5-15 minutes to unlock All Night Long. And after that play online in your favourite mode until you reach at least level 10 to unlock Dipping Your Toes.

The online portion of this game should take most players between 6-10 hours, and will net them 9 Achievements worth 180.

Step 4: Miscellaneous Mop-up (Custom Events)
After completing all the above steps, there's a good chance that you'll have a few remaining miscellaneous achievements that you may want to work on. These include the drifting achievements, and other achievements that are easily attained in custom events. If you are struggling, check the solution for each individual achievement for more details.

DLC: Spa-Francorchamps Track Pack

Step 1: Online
Go to Grid Online and participate to an Endurance Race in Spa, you don't even have to win this, just complete the race and you'll unlock Staying the Distance.

Step 2: Offline
Go to WSR and play 3 different custom events:
- The first one is a 2 lap race where you have to beat 1:49 to unlock Spa Time.
- The second one is a 1 lap race where you have to reach 260mph (418Km/h) to unlock Rouge Racer.
- The final one is a drift event where you have to score 300K+ in a single drift event to unlock Super Drift.

Conclusion:
This DLC is really easy, you should complete it in no time. 10 bucks is quite expensive (only 4 tracks and 2 new cars) but it will give you a good excuse to jump back into that game!

DLC: Bathurst Track Pack

Step 1: Online
Go to Grid Online and win a Checkpoint Event in Bathurst to unlock Time Extended.

Step 2: Offline
Go to WSR and play 3 different custom events:
- The first one is a 2 lap race in Bathurst where you have to beat 1:39 to unlock Aussie Rules.
- The second one is a 1 lap race in Bathurst where you have to reach 220mph (354Km/h) to unlock Outback & Gone.
- The final one is a Time attack event in Bathurst where you have just to complete the event to unlock Bush-bash.

Conclusion:
This second DLC is as easy as the first one, you should complete it in about 45 minutes or so. Once again, you'll have to spent 10 bucks for this extension which is quite a bit expensive considering it only offers you 2 tracks and 3 new cars.

DLC: Classic Grid Pack

Step 1:
Go to WSR and play 2 different custom events:
- The first one is an elimination race where you have to win in a Pagani Zonda Revolución to unlock An Old Favourite.
- The second one is a drift event where you have to win in a Koenigsegg CCGT to unlock Turn Back Time.

Conclusion:
This is the third and probably the last DLC for this game. It includes 4 new cars: Koenigsegg CCGT, Pontiac Firebird Mk1, Plymouth Cuda and Pagani Zonda R. This DLC is very short and can be quickly completed in about 15 minutes.

Touge Fast, Touge Furious15
You shutout an opponent in a career Touge event. 

Getting a "shutout" in Touge is accomplished by winning both rounds of the event. Your first chance at Touge will come when you reach the Asia Club stage, after WSR Season 2. Your best bet is to set the difficulty to "Very Easy" and just cruise to victory. You should pair this achievement with "Eat It!", by making sure to win using the "5 second rule", where you will win the event by gaining a substantial lead on your opponent.

C-C-C-Combo Maker15
You reached the maximum multiplier in an Overtake event. (1) 

For this achievement, you'll need to reach the maximum multiplier of 10 in an overtake event. I recommend doing this on the first promo event that you are offered as it is quite easy.

Every time you overtake a car, you will be rewarded with a multiplier. If you can too long to overtake a car, you will lose a multiplier. If you collide with another car or the track, you will go all the way back down to the minimum.

To get this achievement, you'll want to take your time overtaking cars, making sure not to touch anything with your car. Don't worry about speed too much, it's not as important as clean racing. Once you reach the maximum multiplier (1,000 pts in the event specified), you will unlock the achievement.

All Night Long35
You took part in and completed an online Endurance race. (6) 

Use the "Online Custom Search" feature in multiplayer to find an Endurance race. The shortest time for an endurance race online is 5 minutes, so keep that in mind. Just join and/or create a game with at least 1 other player, and complete the race to unlock the achievement. Also, keep in mind that this can be boosted with a friend.

Pinball Wizard15
You traded paint with every competitor during one offline race and still won the race. (1) 

It is recommended that you do this achievement on the first race after the introduction, as there will only be 5 AI opponents. Keep in mind, that you can do this on any difficulty, although Normal should be fine. Once the race starts, you'll want to allow the last place computer AI to catch up to you and then you should start the race.

During the race, you'll want to pull up near cars and gently rub against them using the side of your car when you can. This will allow you to keep control. Once you touch an opponent, start going for the next one. After you touch all 5 opponents, get into first place and win the race to unlock the achievement.

Mo Money, No Problems15
You've gone above and beyond the call of duty and completed 5 career sponsor objectives. (1) 

See Sellout.

Vanishing Point15
You've won a race in a white Dodge Challenger but lived to tell the tale, unlike Kowalski. (12) 

Play through the WSR until you reach Season 2, and unlock the Dodge Challenger SRT8 in the career. Next, go to your vehicles and change the paint livery for this car. Under pattern, choose 1/54 (No Pattern), and then choose White as your base color. Next, you'll want to use this car in an event and make sure that you place first. Feel free to use it in career, or set-up a custom event on very easy difficulty on a short track like Yas Marina.

Rocket Manski15
You've driven faster than a Russian torpedo, which incidentally is 230 mph. (5) 

To get this achievement, you'll want to first progress to WSR Season 5, where you will introduced to Tier Four vehicles. During the season, you'll want to do the ESPN Endurance Promo Event, where you use the Koenigsegg Agera R. During the race, you will take a big hairpin turn after about 20-30 seconds, coming into a long straight. Just accelerate down the long straight until you get the achievement. You might need go full speed into a wall to get the extra few clicks on the speedometer.

Note: 230mph = 370 kph

Sellout30
You've got one thing on your mind: money! You completed 20 career sponsor objectives. (1) 

At the beginning of every section of the WSR you are asked to pick some sponsors, each having unique objectives. As you progress, you will have more and more slots available for sponsors. Make sure to pick the easiest sponsors, as they all offer the same reward in terms of fans. As you complete each individual section of the WSR, you'll want to keep all these objectives in mind, and you can view them at any time by pressing in your garage. If you're able to complete all your sponsor objectives, you'll unlock this achievement during WSR Season 3, although there is a lot of room for error, and you should get the achievement even if you miss half of them.

One For The Team15
You've completed an individual Global Challenge goal and ultimately helped the community. (2) 

From the main menu, choose "GRID Online". In the multiplayer main menu select "Events" then "Global Challenge". You will be brought to a map with a few events that you can choose from. You'll want to select an event that you are comfortable with, but I recommend selecting a Drift or Overtake event as they seem to have the most lenient targets. Complete the event and register at least a Bronze medal to unlock the achievement.

A Different Class20
You've upgraded a car and bumped it to 'Upgraded' class. (4) 

Upgrading is only available online. The first step to getting this achievement is raising at least $8,000 by competing in online events. Next, you'll want to go to your online garage, choose your Alfa Romeo Giuletta Quadrifoglio which is given to all players, and then select the "upgrade" option. You will be brought to a menu with a few different parts that you can buy, as well as some bars that show the effects of these parts. You'll want to purchase upgrades until your car goes from Tier 1 to Tier 2. You will be given a message that your car has changed classes, and you will unlock the achievement. It is recommended that you take at least one part off to bump it down to Tier 1, so that you can use the car online for the other upgrade related achievement.

Ring Master15
You finished 5 seconds ahead of the target time in a Vehicle Challenge on the Red Bull Ring. (5) 

This achievement is actaully missable. You will have at least 3 opportunities to get this achievement during the WSR, but it is advised that you get it as soon as possible.

You'll get your first chance during Season 2, and another two chances during Season 4 (Z06/Viper & Atom/X BOW R). Just make sure you keep an eye out on the vehicle challenges during these seasons and change the difficulty to "Very Easy" before doing doing anything on this track. The target times are quite lenient and I was personally able to fulfil the requirements of this achievement 3 times during the WSR on normal difficulty. If you are about to pass the finish line, and you don't think you'll make the 5 second cutoff, make sure to pause and restart it. Also, make the most use out of your flashbacks.

Tokyo Drift25
You scored 350,000 drift points in Okutama in a Mazda RX-7 TYPE RZ or a NISMO R34T-R Z-TUNE. (4) 

Create a custom event as follows:

  • Race Type: Drift
  • Vehicle Tier: Tier Two
  • Rounds: 1 Round
  • AI Drivers: Very Easy
  • Flashbacks (Advanced Options): Unlimited
  • Track Selection: Okutama - Tenshi Way - Day
  • Vehicle: Nissan Nismo R34T-R Z-Tune


There are multiple factors that come into play when scoring in drift mode. You'll want a high speed and angle to rack up the most points. More importantly you want to make sure that multiplier is a big as possible. Drifting near a pylon will give you 2x, drifting very close to a pylon will give you 3x, and drifting close to 2 pylons in one continuous drift will give you 4x.

Now that you understand how the scoring works, it's time to get a score of over 350,000. Start out by gaining speed, and pulling a short drift near the beginning of the track for a couple thousand points. Next, try to get close to the first 3 pylons using 2-3 different drifts at a high speed. After the first hairpin, you'll want around 100,000 points. Continue down the track until the next hairpin where you'll want to pull a long and fast drift near the pylons again. Coming out of the 2nd hairpin, you'll probably want at least 175,000 points. Go straight to the 3rd hairpin as there is no need for some amounts of points in between, and pull another big drift in the hairpin, hopefully exiting with at least 275,000 points. The last part is definitely the hardest, but also the most important. You really need to be fast and time everything perfectly, but remember, you will have lots of flashbacks available. There are a total of 4 pylons in the last few turns, and you'll want to score on all of them if possible. For the first one, maintain good speed and don't cut too close as you're more likely to crash. After scoring, cut back the other way and try to follow the last hairpin as best as you can all the way through. Hopefully, by the time you finish the track, you'll have 350,000 points, but if not, restart before the finish line. Keep restarting until you get the achievement.

Shaken, Not Stirred20
You rolled a car at least 7 times and landed on its wheels, just like Bond did. (5) 

Create a custom event as follows:

  • Race Type: Race
  • Vehicle Tier: Tier Two (Recommended)
  • Rounds: 1 Round
  • Flashbacks (Advanced Options): Unlimited
  • Track Selection: Hong Kong - Magazine Gap - Day
  • Vehicle: Nissan Nismo R34T-R Z-Tune


At the start of the race, you'll just want to race and distance yourself from opponents, and run the track until your 50% complete, which is indicated by the red gauge on the bottom left hand side. After this mark, there will be a 90 degree right hand turn, followed by a small curve in the road with a cliff on the right hand side. You'll want to take your car and steer into this cliff, in such a way that you get airborne and thrown off balance into the track. If done properly, you'll begin to roll (side over side) and then come to a stop. You'll land on your wheels almost every time so don't worry about that either. Also, if your car does not start rolling, just use your flashback and try to hit the cliff again in a slightly different way. View the video for an in-depth walkthrough of how to do this:

Note: Flips (front over back) do not count towards this achievement. The car must do barrel rolls.

Keep Your Friends Close... 5
… and your enemies even closer. You beat a Rival on track. (48) 

To get this achievement you will have beat one of your rivals in an online race. Rivals can be found under "GRID Online", then "Events" and then "Rivals".

You will be given two randomly assigned rivals that are given to you when you log-in to racenet for the first time, although finding them online and in a joinable race is tricky.

The other way involves doing this with a friend. To do it with someone on your friend's list. The first step is for both players to create racenet profiles and play GRID 2 on their Xbox. After this visit:

http://racenet.codemasters.com/

After logging into your account, you'll want to click "Select Game" at the top of the screen, and then choose "GRID 2" and then click on "Rivals". Alternatively, after logging in you can just click the following link to be taken directly to your rivals:

http://racenet.codemasters.com/grid2/rivals

Click on one of the "Social" boxes and choose your friend from the drop-down menu. Then hit "Send Request" at the bottom of the screen to send the invite. Now the other player will need to accept the invitation in their rivals screen.

After doing this, you can both go into your game and you will see each other under your rivals list under the social title. Now you'll want to create a private Touge event and trade wins to unlock this achievement.

If you are struggling with the racenet website menus, please see the below screenshots provided by B A R 4 D:


You rOCDed!100
You finished first in every career event, during season play and/or via the timeline. (10) 

This is the "completion" achievement, where you'll need to get first place in all career events, including promo events, but not vehicle challenges. It is advised that you progress through the entire WSR until you complete it, and then revisit any events that you skipped along the way. Make sure to get first place in all the events, and if you are struggling, make sure to remember that you can change the difficulty to very easy if necessary.

Note: There is a small problem when completing promo events using the timeline. After completing them, they will not be marked with a green checkmark symbol, but they WILL count towards the achievement. Just make sure you get first place in all of the promo events, and you will unlock the achievement.

Dipping Your Toes30
You've reached level 10 online and opened up a new world of possibilities. 

To reach level 10 online, you need to earn somewhere between 240,000 - 290,000 credits in multiplayer events, depending on the player, events and impact rating. You can also earn credits in the global challenge at the end of every week, or custom/private games but it is much lower than online races.

The easiest playlist to level up in is the "Alternative" playlist where you will take part in Endurance races, Time Attack, Drift, Touge & Face-Off events. Credits are determined based on your finishing position, as well as your driver rating. Clean drivers will earn a substantial amount more than dirty drivers. Winning in a touge or face-off event should net you between 4000-4500, and playing well in full 12-player event such as Drift, Endurance race or Time Attack can gain you from 10,000-30,000 credits.

Remember to level up your cars to gain a small advantage over others. This achievement should take between 5 to 8 hours for the average player, depending on their skill.

Fast and easy boosting method (courtesy of Creech):
Go to GRID Online, choose Events, Xbox Live, Online Custom Event, Create Game. Change Race Type to Touge, Rounds to 5. Get one boosting partner and trade wins each round. Note that if the losing player in a given round just sits at the starting line, the game will kick them out. They need to just progress slowly down the track at 30mph or so until the winning player is 5 seconds ahead of them.

Each person will get just under $10,000 every 7 minutes or so.

Social Butterfly20
You took part in an online playlist and stuck around for at least 5 races. (4) 

Go to "GRID Online", then "Events", then "Xbox LIVE" and select "Online Playlist". Now pick any of the 3 playlists available which include "Everything", "Racing" & "Alternative". Once you join one of these playlists, you cannot leave the lobby for at least 5 events. You do not have to win or finish for the races to count. A DNF or Disqualification will still count as taking part in the race. Just keep playing until the achievement unlocks. Picking the Racing playlist, this shouldn't take more than 20-25 minutes.

Sideways Shenanigans10
You performed a 100m drift. (1) 

This achievement should come naturally with progression through WSR mode. If you are struggling, you'll find tips on how to drift under the Drifting Like A Boss achievement.

Could It Be Magic?15
You beat all of the Prestige drivers in career club events. (1) 

This achievement will come with natural progression of the WSR, as long as you typically finish within the top 3 in every race. The achievement is for finishing ahead of all club drivers throughout your career, and you should come across all of them by WSR season 3.

Master Racer30
You won a career event on the hardest difficulty without using Flashbacks. (9) 

It is recommended that you do this on the first race available to you in the career. Go to "Options & Extras" and change the difficulty to "Very Hard". Use the timeline to select the "California Race - Pacific Way" in the first club series, and choose the Chevrolet Camaro Z28, as it is the fastest. You should be able to do most of the race without braking, and you will naturally overtake the opponents in the turns because of your car. Make sure that you don't use any flashbacks, and if you do happen to crash, you'll want to pause and restart the race until you win.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger10
You won a race in an upgraded car. (9) 

This is on online achievement. When playing online, you will earn credits that can be used to buy upgrades under "My Vehicles" in the multiplayer main menu. After earning some cash online, buy a few upgrades for a lower tier car, and then take that car into an online race, and win.

A Vision of What's to Come10
You won a career Promo Event. (1) 

As you play through the WSR, you will be offered various Promo events which can be selected from the career menu. You will see a red banner reading "Invitation" when there are available races under this section. Just complete a promo event in first place to unlock this achievement. Any difficulty will work.

Beginner's Luck15
You set the fastest time on the first lap of a Time Attack event. (1) 

This achievement can be obtained in a variety of way, but the easiest method involves setting the difficulty to "Very Easy", and then playing a Time Attack event during the career, or create a custom event of your choice. Luckily this mode has a rolling start, so you don't have a disadvantage. You will gain the achievement by getting the fastest lap on your first lap, and then finishing the race,or quitting the race early.

Remember Me?20
You lapped a competitor. (6) 

This can be done in a variety of ways, although the easiest method is to create a custom event. From the WSR menu, select "Events", then "Custom Event", and create a 15 minute Endurance race on any track, against very easy AI drivers. Just race your best and you should be able to start lapping opponents within 5-10 minutes, gaining the achievement immediately in-game. Once you get the achievement, feel free to back out.

You can also do this online with a friend in any race event. Just have your friend drive in circles at the start line until you lap them for the achievement to unlock.

Eat It!15
You won the first round of a career Touge event using the 5 second rule. (1) 

There are 2 ways to win in Touge, but for this achievement we'll be using the 5 second rule, which is when you gain a 5 second lead on your opponent. The first Touge event in career will happen during the club stages in Asia. At that point, you'll want to change the difficulty to very easy, and start a Touge event. Just go through the track as fast as you can without crashing until the bar in the middle of the screens fills up, and you will unlock the achievement.

Making My Way Down Town25
You've driven more than 1,000 miles (1,610km). (4) 

This achievement comes with time as you complete the WSR and play online. Completing the "You rOCDed!" achievement should get you about 1,000+ miles, and getting to level 10 online should get you an extra 250 miles, so just keep playing and you will get it with progression.

If you want to get the achievement out of the way as fast as possible, set up a custom event using Tier Four cars on a track with minimal turns.

Pedal to the Medal30
You won a round of a career event without using the brakes. (4) 

There are various ways to do this achievement, but I recommend doing it during WSR Season 1, Motor Mavens Faceoff Series, using any car. You can choose any difficulty, although Normal isn't too hard for this achievement.

Just take your time around the track, not using your brake. Pull off the throttle to slow down, and rub against walls in order to slow down faster when you need it. Use the throttle around the corners to start a drift, making it easier to corner.

Just make sure to win the race, and you will unlock the achievement.

SWAGtastic!15
You beat the target time in a Vehicle Challenge. (1) 

As you progress through the WSR you will be invited to Vehicle Challenges, which will show up under the career section of the menu. You will see a red banner reading "Invitation" when there are available races under this section. Just beat the clock in any vehicle challenge to unlock this achievement. Any difficulty will work.

Global Domination20
You won a week of Global Challenge. (7) 

Go to "GRID Online", then "Events", then "Xbox LIVE" and select "Global Challenge". Here, you'll be able to select from 5 different events, where you can try to beat previously set targets, earning a bronze, silver or gold medal. Once you earn a medal, you will also earn some points towards the "Weekly Leaderboard" displayed in the main global challenge screen. The goal is to be ranked first, when timer in the top right hand corner expires. The timer should expire on Friday of every week. If you are having trouble getting first place, you can temporarily delete any friend from your friend's list until you unlock the achievement. If you are the only person on your leaderboard, you will still unlock the achievement, as long as you earned at least 1 bronze medal.

For the achievement to unlock, you will need to open up the global challenge menu after the timer expires. It will update you on your progress, and unlock the achievement.

California Dreaming30
You completed California Big Sur in under 3 minutes. (6) 

You'll want to wait until you progress to WSR Season 5, and unlock a good Tier Four vehicle. At that point you'll want to create a custom event with the following options:

  • Race Type: Race
  • Vehicle Tier: Tier Four
  • AI Drivers: Very Easy
  • Track Selection: California - Big Sur (9.6km) - Day
  • Car: Audi R8 LMS Ultra (Or other T4 Grip/Balanced vehicle)


From the start, you'll want to try to get into 1st place without damaging your car. You'll want to keep traction during the corners and minimize drifting. Brake when needed, and accelerate through the corners. Keep it clean, and you should be able to get this achievement after a few runs of the course. At the 50% marker, you'll want to be at 1:42 or faster, if you plan to beat the 3:00 timer. Just keep racing, and you will beat the time without some patience if you're struggling.

Note: You can do this achievement online, although you will need to be a high level to purchase and upgrade Tier Four vehicles.

Jack of All Trades10
You've competed in all race types. (1) 

There are 9 race types, as follows:

  • Race
  • Time Attack
  • Drift
  • Eliminator
  • Overtake
  • Touge
  • Faceoff
  • Checkpoint
  • Endurance


Just play through the events in the WSR, and you should unlock this achievement after participating in your first Drift event in the club level before WSR Season 3.

Natural Ability25
You won an Online Playlist event. (1) 

Go to "GRID Online", then "Events", then "Xbox LIVE", and select "Online Playlist" and choose the "Alternative" playlist. In this playlist you will find a variety of events such as Touge, Face-Off & Drift events. You want to enter into either a Touge or Face-Off event as you will only be competing with one other player, normally someone a similar level to you. You have a better chance at winning this way, so you should get it eventually. Also, keep in mind that you can upgrade your car a little if you need it.

The Artist10
You've individually applied customised liveries to 5 vehicles. (2) 

Continue playing the WSR until you own a total of 5 cars. At this point, go to "My Vehicles" and then "Customize Player Livery". When editing your car, you can choose to edit the pattern, colors, number, sponsors and wheels. Choose a new pattern and/or some different colors that you like then go to "Complete" and "Apply to this Vehicle". Now change your vehicle and repeat the above steps 5 times to unlock this achievement.

Quantum Leap10
You repeated an event using the Timeline. (2) 

After you make your way to WSR Season 1, you will unlock a "Timeline" option in the events section. With this, you will be able to look at all the events that you have been able to participate in, and it will show all previous events. To gain this achievement, you'll want to use the timeline and select an event that you've already placed in. Just play the event again, until you finish it to unlock the achievement.

Gone in 60 Seconds15
You completed a lap of Chicago - Wabash Run driving the Ford Mustang Mach 1 in less than 60 seconds. (14) 

This is a rather difficult achievement, but with patience and the proper racing line it is possible. First, you'll want to create a Custom Event with the following settings:

    Race Type: Race
    Vehicle Tier: Tier One
    Rounds: 1 Round
    AI Drivers: Very Easy
    Grid Order (Advanced Options): Random
    Flashbacks (Advanced Options): Unlimited
    Track Selection: Chicago - Wabash Run - Day - 5 Laps
    Vehicle: Ford Mustang Mach 1 Twister Special


During lap 1, your goal is to cleanly gain the lead and set yourself up for a good lap. You'll be going for the achievement during laps 2, 3 and 4. If you don't have the achievement by the beginning of lap 5, it is advised that you restart the event as AI cars will get in the way during this lap.

The goal is to get a lap time of 59.99 or lower, in this stock car. There are various ways of approaching this, but keeping to the racing line and controlling your drifts is essential. The best line through corners is to approach from the outside wall, steer into the inside apex of the turn, and then keep speed through the corners to the opposite side wall again. This line will allow you to maintain the best speed through corners and minimize unnecessary drifting. You will need to drift, but the goal is too not drift too much. Drift to slow yourself down, and to get yourself through the corner, but straighten out as soon as you have enough track to do so. The most important turn of the entire track is the large downhill hairpin before the long straight. Make sure to get maximum speed through this corner and come out of it with a high top speed to shave off a good amount of seconds.

Also, keep in mind that you have unlimited flashbacks. If you are having a really good lap, feel free to spam those flashbacks and make sure you get every corner perfect.

Note: It is possible to do this achievement online using a fully upgraded car.

Harlem Globeshaker10

  • Barcelona
  • Red Bull Ring
  • Chicago
  • Dubai
  • Miami
  • Paris

Drifting Like a Boss15
You've scored 250,000 points in a single drift. (4) 

Many people have been able to do this with Tier Two drift cars like the Mazda RX-7 Type RZ, but it can be a little difficult to do that. I personally recommend using a Tier Three drift car like the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 or the Viper, which worked a lot better for me.

Set-up a custom drift event on Okutama - Tenshi Way, with unlimited flashbacks and the Tier Three car of your choice. You want to aim for this achievement during the second or third hairpin turn. Go in with a very high speed, and get as close as possible to the first pylon hopefully getting a x3 multiplier. Because of the speed and the power of the car, you should be able to make it through the turn without breaking the drift adding an additional x2 multiplier. If you spin out or collide with something during the middle of the turn, make sure to use your flashbacks until you get it right. Just keep practicing and this should be the easiest method to get this achievement.

Depending on your multiplier, you will need at least this many points:
62,500 x 4 = 250,000
50,000 x 5 = 250,000
41,667 x 6 = 250,000

Flawless Victory20
You've won an Overtake event making no contact with anything. (Excludes Global Challenge events) (5) 

For this achievement, you'll need to win an overtake event without making contact with other cars or the track. I recommend doing this on the first promo event that you are offered as it is quite easy.

To get this achievement, you'll want to just take your time around the course. Make sure to break early, take it easy in the corners, watch out for opponents, and get decent points in order to win, and you will unlock the achievement.

Winging It10
You've won a LiveRoute event. (1) 

LiveRoute events will show up during your play through the WSR. In this type of event, the track will change on the fly, and you will not have a mini-map. You should be introduced to a LiveRoute event pretty early on, and if you win the race you will unlock the achievement. If struggling, you can change the difficulty in the Options to make the game easier.

DLC: Spa-Francorchamps Track Pack
Cost: $9.99 USD Achievements: 4 Points: 100
 
Spa Time20
Beat a lap time of 01:49:00 at Spa-Francorchamps. (Excludes drift events) (1) 

In WSR, create a custom event with the following settings:
- Race (on Spa GP)
- Tier 4
- Unlimited Flashbacks
- 2 laps
Bugatti Veyron or Audi R8 should be the car you want for this achievement (or any other grip car). You need to the reach the final chicane at 1:39 or 1:40 to cross the line below 1:49. Learn the track, keep practicing and use your flashbacks as much as you want to get a clear run!

If you are having trouble making the last chicane with enough speed/time to finish in time, you can cut across the grass and if you come back onto the track as late as you can (where the wall comes cuts back toward the track, makes a 7ish shape) it takes about 3 seconds more to cross the finish line.

Staying the Distance20
Complete an online Endurance race at Spa-Francorchamps. (8) 

This is easiest to do with 1 other friend in a custom match. You just have to set it to endurance, all other settings don't matter. You do not have to win, just complete the race.

Important note: If you want to match up with a friend, make sure you have exactly the same DLC installed on your HDD. If you cannot join the game, both of you need to delete all other DLC and it should work then!

Super Drift30
Score over 300,000 points in a single drift at Spa-Francorchamps. 

It's not as hard as it sounds. In WSR, create a drift event in Spa.


Choose a drift car you're comfortable with (I took the Aston Martin One 77 - Tier 4) and wait for the (kind of) U turn that goes to the right. Drift around it and try to get a X5 or X7 combo by staying close to the red/white pylons (there are 3 of them).

I advise to put unlimited flashbacks as you may need a lot of tries to get it though!

Rouge Racer30
