The cars I used to get gold in this Challenge Series are:

Feel the Heat: Audi RS4
Hell on Wheels: Porsche 911 Carrera S (only available in the limited edition the game). The Lotus Exige Cup is also a good choice.
The Edge: Shelby Cobra*
Rally Challenge: Subara Impreza (Only car available)
Dust in my eyes: Mercedez AMG (Only car available)

If you are doing the Challenge Series in order you will not have unlocked the Shelby Cobra yet, I would recommend getting at least bronze on all the Winter Blast events so you can unlock the Cobra before attempting "The Edge". The Cobra is the only car that could get me close to the Gold goal time. After several tries I got gold. You'll probably find it easier than I did.

Credit goes to minus15T for recommending the Shelby Cobra.

I didn't have any problems with the other races, I got gold on my first or second try.

I'm french so sorry if I made any spelling or grammar mistakes

Good luck with the achievement :)
