Welcome to Race Driver: GRID, the newest addition to the TOCA racing series. This game blends various driving types together all in one game and does a great job at, this includes, GT Super sports, drifting, touge, open wheel and even demolition derby as well as the glorious 24 Hours of Le Mans. The game features a great variant of cars to make each event perfect which are set over three regions; United States, Europe & Japan. GRID also introduces the famous Flashback feature and is heavily focused on racing for teams/contracts.

Gotta Drive 'Em All
First off, I will start with this achievement as with the latest patch, it has made this achievement permanently unobtainable through a glitch in the games car count, but there is still a way to unlock it. Follow the link below to see how, you will need a USB and will be playing around with your save file. Link

GRID World
In the games primary mode, you will end up reaching the top of both the driver and team leaderboards, you will constantly be hiring new and better teammates as you unlock them, you will need to win every event thus achieve all the trophy's and you will buy and sell constantly to keep on top of credits.

The game has more miscellaneous achievements than any other type, most of them being fairly straight forward as they will naturally come through just playing the game and progression through the GRID's Career (GRID World.)
Achievements include; Get a car airborne for 1 second, finish the cross line in reverse and win, be involved in a 10 car pile-up, reach 200mph, lap an opponent, buy a car, use flashback, destroy your car, race at ever location, win various types of events etc. Some of these can only be unlocked in GRID World, others in Race day and multiplayer but they are all specified in the description.

Difficult Misc
These achievements are not necessarily "hard" but are slightly more difficult compared to the others and a few of these may give the average racer some trouble and you will have to go out of your way to get some of these so the following may require some extra effort and I'll provide tips.

-Drift your car for 5 seconds - First practice and master drifting, then pick a muscle car on one of the Yokohama tracks in Freestyle Drift within Race Day mode and start a drift around the huge bends that go around the corners, you'll have this within a few attempts at most.

-Get a 50x Drift Multiplier - This is all about keeping the combo going until you hit 50, choose the same setting as before but here you want to switch around corners constantly to keep your combo going and keep those drifts consistent.

-Win a Touge event on 5 star difficulty level - This can be tough as you are racing on narrow corners, up and downhill but there is one event that can be won quite easily after a few attempts of learning the track. Go into Race Day and Race Day, select the Nissan Skyline GT-R on Mount Haruna, Foothills and this will be the easiest set up to win this on Extreme.

-Complete a lap of Okatama Grand Circuit in under 90 seconds - This is by far the most difficult achievement in the game and unless you're a an experienced racer, this will take a lot of practice but is still doable. Apart from watching videos to get an idea on how to beat the track in 1:30, it is also ideal to choose the Audi R10, some people may find it easier to use the Mazda 787B depending on your driving, whatever suits you best. You have to do this in GRID World, so after choosing your car pick test mode and give it some solid attempts.


You need to win 5 races for 2 of the achievements, you can create a custom race and have a friend join and trade wins. The other multiplayer achievement is to beat a developer or anyone who has beaten one. This of course is a viral achievement and by now everyone will have. The final two achievements are to reach the rank of Elite (1200 points) & Legend (2000 points.)

The quickest way to reach 2000 points is to trade wins with a friend in ranked matches by setting the game to Japan, Downhill Drift Festival. You need to set the race length, damage and collisions on for maximum points, this is providing you do not damage your car, crash or hit anything. Seeing as the track is one, sort downhill route, you will not have any trouble. Check the Achievement Trading Thread to find people to trade wins with.

Introduction to DLC
The 8-Ball Pack features 8 new cars available to play in Race Day & Multiplayer. The DLC also adds 2 new multiplayer events set on existing tracks. The DLC add 4 achievements at 25G each, 3 of which that can be earned in Race Day and the last being a multiplayer only achievement. 

The cars included are;

  • McLaren F1 GTR
  • TVR Cerbera Speed 12
  • Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X
  • Honda S2000
  • Nissan GT-R (S-G2008)
  • VW Nardo
  • Pontiac Firebird Trans AM
  • Volvo C30.

Drift Master 
The same method for Combo King can be used here expect you must do this in the Honda S2000 and reach a combo of 99x. Start a Freestyle Drift event on Yokohama and start the drift. Remember to use your flashbacks if you mess up. 

Gas Guzzler
You should grind your laps for this on the Circuit de la Sarthe 1968 circuit in Race Day, pick the McLaren F1 GTR as it's the most powerful car in the DLC and then continue to race laps around the track until you reach 250 miles driven. Both multiplayer events and singleplayer count for the mileage, and this will roughly take 90 minutes to drive 250 miles. 

Clean Passing
The same method for Gentleman Driver can be used here except you only have to win one race in any of the cars featured in this DLC. A clean race in this game allows you to hit walls and objects but not other opponent's cars. This should be done in Race Day on Basic difficulty, on any track with wide roads or the Circuit de la Sarthe 1968 circuit set to a single lap so you can easily pass everyone cleanly on the long straight. 

Jack of All Trades
You must win an online race in each of the 8 cars featured in the DLC, and this must be one in a ranked match as they do not count in private races. Each car can be driven in various events. The spreadsheet HERE lists every car and the events they can be raced in. Each car has at least two multiplayer events tied to it.

There are 54 achievements with a total of 1100 points

  • Get the car airborne for 1 second

    There are various ways to get a car airborne for one second, get involved in a major crash that sends you flying through the air or hit a Demolition Derby track ramp at the right speed and angle.

    The easiest way to do this is in a Pro Touge race. Go to Race Day (single race), select Pro Touge as the discipline, Mount Haruna as the location and Peak Run as the route. After exiting the first overpass, there will soon be a wooden fence to the left that runs along the track for a few corners. Drive through it to get some nice airtime. It is very likely that you will have to try it a few times to find the right spot, because the games registers a 'fatal crash' relatively fast after you go through the barrier. Also, always go for the Instant Replay and rewind after you have crashed, this can help unlock the achievement.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Win a race using manual transmission


    Transmission type can be changed under 'Driver Assists' in the pre race menu. Shifting up is done with the button and shifting down is done with the button.

    There are two easy ways to achieve this. The first is to start a Race Day event, select a short narrow track (for example San Francisco Short Circuit) and select a fast, but controllable car. Set the difficulty to 'Basic', 'Grid position' to 'Front' and the number of laps to one. This way you are ensured of a first place start. The narrow track will help you to block off opponents. Don't try this when you are new to GRID and the racing genre, get familiar with the game and the racing style and you will soon know when to change gears.

    If you are familiar with racing games and want to get the achievement fast, start your career and do the first 'Driver offer' race in Europe, after this first race you will unlock a time trial for BMW on the Nurburgring. It's a three lap challenge and you have to set a time of 1:47:00 for the bonus. This is not necessary for the achievement, the only thing you have to do is finish. Mind you that this can only be done in the very beginning of the career mode, later on you will have some opporunities to do another time trial in the Driver Offers, but these pop up quite random.
    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Lap an opponent in a 12 car GRID World race

    To lap an opponent he has to be driving one lap behind you and then you overtake him. For example your opponent is in lap 3 and you are in lap 4 and you are closing on his tail. After you passed him he will be one full lap behind you and you have lapped him.

    This is easiest achieved in a Demolition Derby (in GRID World available in the ARL region). Opponents in this discipline will frequently roll onto their roofs or crash into walls immobilizing themselves in that way. The game will still count them as being on track and participating in the race. Lap on of these opponents to unlock the achievement. This can only be done with at least 12 cars on track.

    Can be done in GRID World (career) and Race Day (single race).

  • Finish a race at least one lap ahead of the rest of the field in GRID World

    You have to finish the race with the rest of the field at least one lap behind. This is easiest done when attempting the 'Last Man Standing' achievement. After you have taken out all the competitors, finish the race and the achievement will unlock. Note that it will not unlock during the race, only after you finished.

    Can be done in GRID World (career) or Race Day (single race).

  • Win a 12 car race starting from the back of the Grid

    This achievement will be unlocked during the course of the career. If you want to get it faster, start a Race Day event and choose one of the disciplines that feature 12 cars. These disciplines are: Prototype, GT1, GT2, Demolition Derby, Pro Tuned and Open Wheel. There are other disciplines in which you have 12 cars on the track at certain circuits, but that is not at all circuits.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Race in every city

    In total there are seven cities in the game, complete a race in all of them. The seven cities are:

    San Francisco – North America – ARL League
    Washington – North America – ARL League
    Detroit – North America – ARL League
    Long Beach – North America – ARL League
    Milan – Europe – Euro League
    Yokohama – Japan – J-Speed League
    Shibuya – Japan – J-Speed League

    In the career all these cities, but Shibuya, are available in the first license category. Shibuya is available in the second J-Speed license events.

    The race locations are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day, (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Be involved in a 10 car pile-up


    You have to be involved in a crash with at least three other cars. The easiest to achieve this is not to brake for the first corner and plow your car into the pack of cars going into the turn. Whether you deliberately go after this achievement or not, it is one you will unlock with relative ease.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Get a 2-1 at International Level

    After accumulating 1.000.000 reputation points in GRID World (career), you will unlock the six events of the Global License. Enter an event that your team mate is specialised in and finish 1st and 2nd in the overall classification. Finishing in 1st and 2nd in just one race is not enough, you have to be in the top two positions at the end of the event. Also, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours race with your team mate being 2nd, does not count, even though these races are designated as global events.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Get a x50 Drift Multiplayer

    Every time you score a 'Great Drift' in a drift race you get another multiplier. This means you have to score 49 'Great Drifts' to get the achievement. Make sure you do not lose your combo, by making small drifts on the straights of the circuit you are driving on. These may not add to your multiplier, but they ensure you keep your combo.

    To get a x50 multiplayer in a Drift event (Freestyle, Drift GP or ? discipline) you will need to be able to balance the gas and the steering in just the right way. If you spin out, you will lose your combo and the same thing will most likely happen if you quit a drift before the end of the corner, because you were not driving fast enough.

    The tracks and cars on/with which to accomplish this are really dependent on your personal preferences. Two good tracks are the Okutama Drift Circuit, which is wide and does not have long straights, or the Yokohama Freestyle tracks. These let you decide your own route.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Drift your car for 5 seconds


    To drift your car for five seconds you will need a delicate balance between angle and speed. If you go to slow or if the angle is too low, the drift will stop, if you go to fast or the angle is too high, chances are that you will spin out or finish the corner very fast. Play with the throttle and steering to get the ideal speed and angle, it might require a bit of practice.

    Two good tracks to get this achievement on are the Okutama Drift Circuit, which has a lot of long and winding corners, and the Long Beach Classic Circuit, which features one long 360 degrees corner. On both tracks it is possible to get a drift of around six seconds.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Roll your car twenty times


    This achievement is accumulative, every time you roll you car it is added to the total. After you have made 20 rolls, the achievement will unlock. If you roll your car and restart the race, the roll will still count. So don't hesitate to restart to save your race position. Using a Flashback will cause the roll not to count.

    On the Washington circuits there are a lot of tire stacks that stick out onto the circuit, if you hit one of these it will likely send you flying (and rolling) through the air. If you do a one lap race on the short circuit, you can easily score about four rolls in one race.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Reach 200mph in any car in a GRID World race

    You have to drive over 200mph during a race. The description says it has to be done during a GRID World (career) race, but it can also be done during a Race Day (single race) and multiplayer race.

    The easiest way to do this is in a Race Day race. Select the ’24 Hours of Le Mans’ as discipline and choose one of the LMP1 cars (Audi R10 TDI, Courage LC70 or Creaton CA06/H-Judd), these are the fastest in the game. The only track available in this discipline is Le Mans.

    Start the race and take it easy in the first few corners. After about 1.2 miles you will get onto the first long straight, put the pedal to the metal and you will be driving 200mph in no time.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single player) and multiplayer.

  • Complete a 360º spin and still win the race


    During a race perform a full spin and win the race. You will at some point during a race spin out and make a full turn, the only thing left then is to get back to the front of the pack. If you want to do it an easy way, start a race from Race Day and put the difficulty to Basic, this way you will not have to many trouble catching up with the leader of the race. Make sure you set the lap count high enough to enable yourself to recover. A minimum of five laps to be safe is recommended.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Win an entire GRID World Event without making contact with other cars

    You have to win an event without touching any of the other cars. This is not just winning a race, but an entire event, that can consist of multiple races. Drift and Touge discplines do not count for this achievement and neither do the Head 2 Head and Le Mans races.

    The easiest way to get this achievement is to choose the Pro Tuned Dunlop Spa Challenge in the Euro R License. This event consists of one three lap race on the circuit of Spa Francorchamps. This is a wide track and because it is a one race event the chances of bumping into another car are lower than with a full blown multi race event.

    Set the difficulty to Basic and start the race. During the race, take it easy and overtake the competition one car at a time. The three laps will cost you about 6 - 6,5 minutes so there is plenty of time. Use a flashback if you happen to make contact with another car.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Cross the finish line in first place in reverse

    In a race, cross the finish line in reverse, finishing in first place. To pull this off you need to have a solid lead of at least five seconds. I would recommend a lead of at least ten seconds to be hundred percent safe. Just before the finish line press to use the handbrake and flip the either left or right to make a turn of 180 degrees. After you have completed your turn use to switch into reverse gear and drive across the finish line in reverse.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Fill all your sponsor slots

    After you accumulate your first €60.000 in your career you will be able to race with your own car. This will also open up the ability to acquire sponsors. You have a total of eight sponsor slots on your car. After you win an event you will acquire three new sponsors. To put the sponsor decal on your car and fill a sponsor slot in GRID World (career) go to ‘My Team’, ‘Sponsors’ and then select a sponsor for the slot. Fill all eight slots to acquire the achievement.

  • Buy your first car

    After you acquire €60.000 in your career, you will be able to enter races with your own team and car. This will not count as the first car you buy, since it was already in your garage and the €60.000 was used to restore it. After you win a few events you will have enough money to buy a new car. The cheapest car available is the Jupiter Eagleray MK5. This is a Demoliton Derby car and it costs €21.000 new and is available from €16.500 on eBay Motors. Enter the Michigan Demolition Derby on your ARL Rookie Badge to be able to purchase this car.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Drive every car

    There are 43 cars available in the game in total. See this spreadsheet for a checklist of all cars. The only car that is not buyable in GRID World (career) is the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, this car can be driven in the first few Le Mans races in GRID World (career) as a 'Driver Offer'. It is also available in Race Day (single race), in the Le Mans Series and 24 Hours Of Le Mans disciplines.

    Cars driven are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Win every race in an Event

    In the career mode you will be able to enter events and each event features between one and five races. Win all of the races in one event. This achievement will be easily unlocked while going through the career mode.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Take your team to win its first Event

    Unlike you would expect it is not about you winning an event for your team. Each event also has a team ranking, based on the points the team's drivers gather throughout the races of the event. Be on top of this leaderboard at the end of the event. It will be very easy once you unlock the ability to use a team mate (after unlocking the second license in any region) and hire a good team mate. To do this before you get a team mate, go to the Pro Touge Champion Touge Shield in the J-Speed Rookie license. Win this event and your team will also be on top of the leaderboard, because there is only one team with two cars in this event and they don't perform well enough to top the team leaderboard.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Win your first race

    Win a race to unlock this achievement, couldn't be more simple.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Win all Event Trophies

    In total there are 51 trophies in GRID World (career), they are divided into ten licences:

    ARL Rookie Badge - 6 events
    ARL Pro Badge - 6 events
    ARL National Badge - 3 events
    Euro R License - 6 events
    Euro B License - 6 events
    Euro A License - 3 events
    J-Speed Rookie - 6 events
    J-Speed Super Two - 6 events
    J-Speed Super One - 3 events
    Global Racing League - 6 events

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Set a lap record on any track

    This achievement can only be unlocked when driving in GRID World (career). If you improve a lap record, you will see ‘WR’ behind the lap time. Unfortunately, you cannot see the lap record of a track in GRID World. If you want to know the lap record for a specific track, select it in Race Day (single race). There is not really a need to select a specific track you want to set a lap record one, since you will most likely break numerous lap records during your career.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Race at every location

    In total, there are fifteen locations in the game, complete a race in all of them. The fifteen locations are:

    San Francisco –ARL League
    Washington –ARL League
    Detroit –ARL League
    Long Beach –ARL League
    Milan – Euro League
    Jarama - Euro League
    Istanbul Park - Euro League
    Spa Francorchamps - Euro League
    Donington Park - Euro League
    Nürburgring - Euro League
    Le Mans - Euro League
    Yokohama – J-Speed League
    Shibuya – J-Speed League
    Mount Haruna - J-Speed League
    Okutama - J-Speed League

    In the career all these locations, but Shibuya and Le Mans, are available in the first license category. Shibuya is available in the second J-Speed license events, while Le Mans is the decor of the 24 Hour of Le Mans race at the end of each season (a season lasts four events).

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer).

  • Race for a team from every region

    When you start your career you will only be able to race for other teams. Every time you will have three races to choose from. The top one is the North American ARL League, the middle one is the European Euro League and the bottom one is the Japanese J-Speed League. Race for a team in each of these.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Win a Le Mans 24 Hour race on Pro Mode.

    You have to win a Le Mans 24 Hour race on Pro Mode, meaning that you cannot use any Flashbacks or restarts during the race. Winning does not necessarily mean that you have to get first place in the race, as long as you win your class.

    To make it easy for yourself put the difficulty to Basic before the race. Do not forget to select the Pro Mode as 'On' in the same screen. During the race be careful, brake on time, don't overshoot any corners or bash into walls. The hardest part are the ten hours (five minutes) in which it is dark, this makes it a lot harder to drive, especially in the very shallow corners on the long stretches. It is probably best to drive a few practice laps before you attempt this achievement, track knowledge will give you an advantage. If you would be involved in such a heavy crash that you are not able to win the race anymore, quit to the Dashboard and restart the game, or wait untill the next season for another chance.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Hire a new teammate with a higher rank than your current one

    After unlocking a license in the second category (ARL Pro Badge, Euro B License or J-Speed Super Two) your garage will be expanded. This will give you the opportunity to hire a teammate. At first you will be given a choice of three drivers to hire. From then on you can hire other drivers. To hire a driver go to ‘My Team’ in the GRID World menu, then ‘Team Mate’ and press to fire your current teammate and hire a new one. Look for a driver that has better skills than the current driver and hire him.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Complete your first Le Mans 24 hour race

    After each season (each season lasts four events) there will be the opportunity to race at the Le Mans 24 hour race. You will automatically see it pop up when you select ‘Race Events’ from the GRID World menu when the time is there. For this achievement you need to simply complete the race, no matter in what position, what the state of your car is at the end of the race or whether you are driving for your own or another team. The timer is set at 24 minutes, but it is actually just 12 minutes of racing. You can also do this by firing up a 24 Hours Of Le Mans race in Race Day (single race).

    Can be done in GRID World (career) and Race Day (single race).

  • Get onto a Hall of Fame Leaderboard

    Every event in the career mode has a Hall of Fame, this leaderboard shows the five drivers with the most victories in that specific event. These drivers are fictional and their wins will not go up. In order to get onto the leaderboard you have to equal the amount of wins of the nr. 5 on the leaderboard.

    The easiest leaderboard to get on is the Classic Muscle Bilstein Festival Milano in the Euro League. This event is on the bottom left of the Euro R License events and is available without having to buy an extra car.

    The nr. 5 on the leaderboard has two victories, so you will have to win the event twice to get onto the leaderboard. The event itself has two races.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Win your first ranked Xbox Live race

    Refer to "Five Xbox Live Wins".

  • Win 5 ranked Xbox Live races

    Go online and win five ranked matches, simple as that. There is no real system to have an easy race, given the voting system in GRID. But you can get the achievement pretty easily by racing focused and trying to avoid the onslaught in the first corner.

    Can only be done in ranked multiplayer.

  • Drive a total of 500 miles


    Refer to "Long Haul".

  • Drive a total of 1000 miles


    Drive 1000 miles. You will most likely attain this when you are almost through the career, if you don't do a lot of single races/multiplayer. If you want to get it quick, don’t skip the Le Mans races at the end of each season, these add about 20-30 miles to your total within one race.

    Miles driven are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Drive 750 miles in a single car


    This achievement is similar to 'Short Haul' and 'Long Haul' but this time you have to drive the 750 miles with just one car. A good option is the Audi R10 TDI, purchase this as early on as possible and do your Le Mans races with it. This way you will build up a nice amount of miles while completing GRID World (career). Once you have completed the career, you can do Race Day (single race) races with the car, use it as much as possible online or redo career events. This way the achievement should come with little pain.

    Miles driven are accumulated over GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Top the Driver Leaderboard

    The Driver Leaderboard is comprised of the 500 top drivers based on the total reputation they have gained. As a rookie you start at the bottom and you need to work your way up to nr. 1. The nr. 1 on the leaderboard has about 4,000,000 reputation points. If you finish the whole career on 'Normal' difficulty, with automatic gears, all assists on, 'Pro Mode' & 'Force Head Cam' off, you will easily have more than 5,000,000 reputation points at the end of your career.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Top the Team Leaderboard

    The Team Leaderboard is comprised of the top teams in GRID based on the season earnings. Every season all teams start at $0 and the team that earns the most money throughout the season will top the Team Leaderboard. The nr. 1 (Ravenwest) earns about $14,000,000 per event. This may sound like a lot of money, but is easy achievable towards the end of your career. When you have unlocked the Global License, have good paying sponsors and a skilled team mate you can easily earn $18,000,000 per event. The achievement itself will unlock as soon as you hit the nr. 1 spot on the leaderboard, even if it is only one event into the season.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Earn enough to buy a brand new Lamborgini Murcielago GTR

    A new Lamborgini Murcielago GTR costs $2,100,000. You will need to have a balance in the career of $2,100,000 to unlock the achievement, so this has nothing to do with earnings, just with your current balance. When you start getting more sponsors and winning more races and events you will get this really quickly.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Sell a car for more than you paid for it

    To sell a car for more than you paid for, you have to put it up on eBay Motors, selling it directly will always give you a lower price than the price you bought it for.

    It is wise to have this achievement in the back of your mind when first purchasing a car. Get one of eBay Motors that has a lot of victories and little terminal damages, after winning a few races put it up on eBay Motors for sale. Set the starting price at about 33% of the price for a new car, put the buy now price about 20%-25% higher than the price for a new car and let the auction last four events.

    After each event you will get a bid update. Usually after the first event the bid price will be about 66% of the new price, after three events you will likely reach the new price and after the fourth event the bid will be somewhere between the new price and buy now price. This means you have sold it for more than you bought it for.

    Can only be done in GRID World (career).

  • Beat the developer or anyone who has beaten the developer online


    This is a viral achievement, that means it is not very hard to get. Beat someone that already has the achievement, you do not have to win the race for it to unlock, just finish higher than someone that has the achievement.

  • Win your first Head 2 Head race

  • Be the last survivor of a single player Destruction Derby

    Set up a Demolition Derby race in Race Day (single race) and put it on somewhere between 30 and 50 laps. The long track will take about 35 seconds to complete one lap, so even with 50 laps you can complete the race within half an hour. For the first 20 laps just race. During these laps more and more competitors will roll onto their roof or crash into a wall. After about 20 to 30 laps, only three other competitors will still be racing, they will not crash, unless you take them out. Start driving close to them and once they are about to jump over one of the ramps, hit them in the side of their cars. This will cause them to spin and roll of the ramp, immobilizing them. Take out all three of the remaining cars to be the last survivor.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Win a Touge Event on a 5 star difficulty level

    Touge is head to head racing on narrow mountain roads. There are two variants, the Pro Touge, which consists of two races, one downhill, one uphill, and there is Midnight Touge, which is just one race. To unlock the achievement, you have to win a Pro Touge or Midnight Touge on 5 star (Extreme) difficulty.

    This may seem hard, but there is one track on which this can be accomplished relatively easy. In Race Day (single race), select Pro Touge as Discipline, the Nissan Skyline as the Car, Mount Haruna as the Location and Foothills as the Route. Set the Grid position to Front and start the race.

    If you are familiar with the track you can easily build up a four second margin during the first heat and you only have to follow your opponent in the second heat. So make sure you have either practised the track a few times or you may already know it from the career where it is the premier Touge route.

    Can be done in GRID World (career) and Race Day (single race).

  • Cause Insane damage to your car

    Plough your car into the wall to see the screen go red and the image into slow motion. You have caused terminal damage to your car and unlock the achievement.

    Can be done in GRID World (career), Race Day (single race) and multiplayer.

  • Use the Flashback feature and win the race

    The Flashback feature lets you ‘go back in time’, not too much, but just enough to undo a nasty crash. From a race (when you have not just experienced a fatal crash), there are two ways to initiate ‘Instant Replay’ (the first step to using a Flashback). The first way is by hitting the button, the second way is to press to enter the pause menu and then select ‘Instant Replay’. A fatal crash will automatically initiate ‘Instant Replay’.

    After you have initiated ‘Instant Replay’ use and to rewind and fast forward to the point where you want to resume the race. When you have found this point press the button to use a Flashback.

    After using the Flashback cross the finish line in first place to unlock the achievement. You do not have to get involved in a major crash or spin of the track to be able to use a Flashback, you can do it at any moment of the race, even just before crossing the finish line.

    Can be done in GRID World (career) and Race Day (single race).

  • Earn the full Reputation available in a race

    To earn the full reputation available in a race, you have to have the following settings:

    Difficulty - Extreme (even if you have unlocked Ninja difficulty, Extreme is high enough)
    Pro Mode - On
    Locked to Head Camera - On
    Traction Control - Off
    Transmission - Manual
    Braking Assist - Off
    Stability Control - Off

    Also, you have to win the race to get the maximum reputation available.

    There are two ways to do this in a relatively easy way. The first is to start a drift event and win that. If you are good at drifting it shouldn't be too much trouble

    The second one is by starting a Touge event. This method basically revolves around trapping your opponent by backing into them. When in the event, you have to bare in mind this will be a bit more difficult to reverse into your opponent (but still possible). You will have to get used to the head camera, learn to use gears for reversing and NO RESTARTS. If you mess up, you have to exit out and back in.

    Use to shift gear down, to shift gear up. When on the starting line, I found driving off a bit and then reversing worked best whilst holding to see where the opponent was. Best to try and trap them into a corner; sometimes they may get away, so be sure to adjust your steering.

    Sometimes the opponent gets stuck somewhere (or roll through a gap in the railings) and he won't move. If this happens, you have probably saved yourself from doing a second round with that opponent (as their vehicle is damaged).

    Credits to Thorpe for the last method.

  • Reach the Rank of Legend in Xbox Live races

    For every race you complete you will receive a certain number of reputation points. Finishing the race will give you at least one XP point and you get one extra XP point for every person you beat. So if you finish in 4th and you have four people behind you, you receive 5XP. If you quit early or wreck your car you will get no points, but neither will there be a deduction of points for quitting or wrecking.

    To get to the rank of Legend you will need a total of 2,000 points, before getting to the Legend rank, you will first get the Elite rank at 1,200 points. An overview of all ranks in multiplayer can be found here.

  • Complete a lap of Okatama Grand Circuit in under 90 seconds

    The Okatama Grand Circuit is a tricky circuit to master. There are many winding, high-speed turns, height differences and blind corners. To race on this track without any opponents go to GRID World (career), select 'View Cars' and get the Audi R10 TDI. The Audi R10 TDI is the car with which a time under 1:30 is easiest achieved. If you do not have it your garage yet, buy it before a Le Mans or Prototype race, it costs $15,000,000 when buying it new.
