I thought I would share a quick method for farming skill points. This can be done early in the game (after the Horizon Heats event) and doesn't require having a good car.

In every attempt at this event when I did it correctly, I got 1-3 skill points per run. It takes about a minute and a half so if you do this correctly, you can average about a skill point in per minute. In under 20 minutes, I earned 19 skill points. The perks you have when doing this has a large effect on how well this works, but with no perks I was still able to get 30000+ in my only attempt with no perks active.

On the second paved road south of the R in SAINT MARTIN on the map, there is Bucket List event #11, "Road Trip." You must drive a Hennessey Venom GT along the highway at high speed. You should get a large amount of skill xp regardless of which perks you have, but my best combo I got 15500x3.6=55800 skill xp! This got me three skill points and took a minute and a half.

There are four key things to making this work correctly though. You must go very very fast. (at least 220 mph) You can't hit anything. You can't win the event (for some reason your skill points don't count if you win the event so you may have to brake at the end. As a rule of thumb, I would brake no later than the beginning of the tunnel) Also, you may need to stop or at least greatly slow down so your combo registers, but I am not sure about this.

You will get frequent 1000 pt ultimate speed bonuses and multiplier increases, which add up fast. If you can SAFELY get a near miss at high speed, this will get you another 1000 pt and increase your multiplier.

To optimize your scores, use your skill points to increase your combo scores, near miss scores, etc. If you do not have the perk which increases your multipliers to 1.2x, be sure to get this early.
