To be blunt, this achievement is pure luck.

Beacon Blast requires you to drive through checkpoints to gain points (or you could kill people, but yeah). This achievement requires that you drive through 7 beacons in a row in Arcade Challenge. A Beacon Blast game in Arcade Challenge hosts only 20 beacons.
Getting 7 of them in a row isn't easy. The maps do not feature a set spawning pattern for any of the beacons. You will find yourself getting a few in a row but then suddenly, one spawns right in the path of an enemy or far out of your driving capabilities.

The level you play on will play a part in the difficulty of this achievement. Something I noticed is that if I played on a more "open" map, I would almost never get multiple beacons in a row. Selecting a map that has a decent number of hazards can prove beneficial since it isn't uncommon to see the AI bunch together in one spot, stuck in a trap.
The map I used was the first map selected once starting up the game. Now, vehicle selection. I do not have many vehicles unlocked but I found it easier to play as a car with lower stats. I had a harder time trying to get multiple beacons than I did with the first car at the selection screen. I don't know why that is (especially since I was using a car that was equal or better than the first car). Part of it is because when using a better vehicle, the enemies tend to have better vehicles as well.

As I mentioned earlier, this achievement is unlocked through luck. The game will have to spawn 7 beacons in a row that are either close to one another or one an easy-to-follow path. If you fail, the only thing you can do is try and try again.
