A Promise of Greatness (Bronze)
I did this one on challenge 48 which is pretty easy to be 1 second faster then gold time.

Are these Sports Mode only trophies? If so. they'll probably be the most difficult to get.

  • Record Number of Races (Gold): Matched Rubens Barrichello’s record of 322 F1 races

I don't know, I hope not....but I think it would be too easy if you can make it also in the arcade mode

Unfortunately, those golds are Sport mode only, which sucks big time. I really hope they will add some single player events that will allow us to do those achievements without going through frustration in online mode :)

To accomplish the 1,000,000 drift trophy I simply went to the Windmill level (forward) in the Audi rally car. I got roughly 14,000 (sometimes more, sometimes less) points each time and could do it twice in about 70 seconds or so. It took me about 45 minutes to complete today.

Those sport more wins and pole positions are what bother me.......

Someone here should do 91 f1 victories in arcade just to make sure

No need, I already tried doing arcade and custom races, it only works in online mode. However, the 'First Victory' trophy you can earn in Arcade mode.

You can do the 100 pictures in about 20 minutes (or less?). Just pick a scene, a car go to the camera tab and snap a pic. Hit O and don't save, then hit the camera button again. Easy.

I did a quick test on XP for a custom race and while you do get more credit for longer races, it's best to do just 2 cars for the race as you get more for 2nd place. That is, if you plan on rubber banding your way to level 50 *pleads the 5th*

I got my Certified Genius trophy last night. All it took was a top 10 leaderboard time and a whole lot of patience and praying those ahead of me don't race :lol: I still thinks it's ridiculous to ask everyone to complete it. Just 48 more wins and like 200 something races left, then I can rubber band my way to level 50.

Speaking of, I'm doing a test run at Northern Isle in a GT-R against one AI car on Pro with full assists and the option to reset the car, that should also get me some mileage points too over the next 8 hours. I read somewhere that a 24 hour race gives you like 100,000 XP. My first test, I didn't use the car reset option and didn't get any mileage cause the driver assist didn't know how to put the car in reverse when it t-boned into a wall >_<

To achieve welcome to the nordschleife trophy is easy, if you open the track as an award in the game then go to the arcade mode and choose time attack nordschleife track and finish 1 lap then you will get the trophy.

Note: you cant get this trophy in career mode.

Here are my notes on grinding up to level 50. Long story short, it's gonna take FOREVER. As a reference, I'm on level 34 and I need 25,000 XP to get to 35, IIRC.

- ARCADE MODE 24 HOUR RACE 'CUSTOM RACE' CONFIGURATION -

::CONTROLLER SETUP::
DS4 with a rubber band around the gas and one on the left stick pointing to the right (to ride the wall the entire race preventing messups the auto-drive can't fix).

::CAR::
McLaren Ultimate VGT (Anything super fast, more laps = more mileage points!)

::TRACK::
Blue Moon Bay Speedway (I think this is the best track for this because of the long straights that let you get your speed up, resulting in more mileage)

::DRIVING OPTIONS::
Transmission - Automatic
Front Tires - Racing Super Soft
Rear Tires - Racing Super Soft
Traction Control - 0
Assist Preset Selection - Custom
Auto-Drive - Brake & Steering
Driving Line Assist - Off
Brake Indicator - Off
Active Stability Management (ASM) - Off
Countersteering Assist - Weak
ABS - Default

::RACE SETUP::
Race Type - Endurance
No. Of Laps - N/A
Time Limit - 24 Hours
No. Of Cars - 2
Starting Grid - 2
Start Type - Rolling Start
Rolling Start Interval - 82ft.
Boost - None
Slipstream Strength - Real
Mechanical Damage - None
Tire Wear - Off
Fuel Consumption - Off
Grip Reduction On Wet/Track/Teck Edge - Low
Opponent Category - One-Make
Opponent Difficulty - Professional
Shortcut Penalty - None
Wall Collision Penalty - None
Correct Vehicle Course After Wall Collision - On
Replace Car At Course Out - On
Flag Rules - Off

- 24 HOUR RACE REWARDS -

::MONEY::
$1,410,000

::MILEAGE POINTS::
31,210 Mileage Points @ 21.67 Mileage Points Per Minute

::EXPERIENCE POINTS::
11,000

In no way does it seem possible to get all the starts filled in on the difficulty. The only ones that make a difference are:
1) AI Difficulty
2) Boost
3) Starting Position

You get more guaranteed XP with just 2 cars in the race since I'll be getting last. I may try the Tomahawk for the race when I unlock it (which may yield more completed laps thus more mileage pts.), but its the McLaren for now.

Lastly, you get very close to the same proportion of XP, Money and Mileage no matter if its a 6 hour, 12 or 24 hour Enduro. So it may pay off to run 12 enduros when you are at work, for example.

HTH!

EDIT: And I just got gifted the Dodge SRT Tomahawk X VGT car today :lol: So I'm doing another race to see what the Mileage Points will be.

EDIT 2: I didn't have the left stick pushed far enough to the right so the car was spinning in circles for hours I guess, haha. I'll try again and see what mileage I get.

For the Poles & Wins trophies, the easiest way Ive seen is dependant on your skill level, but still... purposely tanking your DR/SR so you can race against the low level trash.

Set a blistering lap time in qually each week for sport mode, then start on pole every race because you're 2 seconds faster, and eventually when you get upto driver rating A and the races start becoming trickier, and you start getting less pole positions because of wheel user try hards... Just purposely get DQ'd and purposely **** up races until it resets you to D/E

Then repeat.

Easy way to get to 65 quickly, i'm already at about 45 poles, and 40 wins.

Actual 322 race finishes will just come over time naturally.

Thats one way to do it buddy, but I don't want to build up a bad rep online. Like you said though, the races (and hopefully wins too) will come eventually. Sooner for you tho ;)
