There are three ways you can do this, and they are as follows: Rally, Hillclimb, or Rallycross under 'Championships.' No matter which you choose you'll have to do four championships to even unlock the Masters division (as long as you finish in the top 3 for each season of Open, Clubman, Professional, and Elite). Each division gets increasingly hard and adds more events.

Don't even think about going for Rally Masters. Not only is it a time-consuming grind to even get to Masters, you'll be breaking controllers even attempting to do so. Let's avoid that.

Instead, I had a much easier time going for Hillclimb Masters. You'll only be racing one track throughout the journey (Pikes Peak with different surfaces) and you'll get to know the course very well on the way through each division. Grab yourself a hillclimb car (I used the Peugeot 405). On the way to reaching Masters you'll surely attain all the upgrades (having the appropriate Engineer perks helps too).

The Open division only has three stages. The Masters division only has six (though they are each the full course and all variations of Pikes Peak). You should know the track well by then. If you don't, keep practicing. Also, you can skip your second run if you feel your first run was quick enough (by starting the second run and then pausing and hitting 'Abandon Run') to make the grind a little quicker.

Car setup advice: I stiffened the rear suspension a few clicks and softened the front suspension a few clicks to make the car more oversteery, as well as max out 6th gear for a little higher top speed. You may not need to do any of that. Even at Masters level I was still winning stages by 5-10 seconds or more on good runs.

Rallycross is also an option (and it takes way less time than Rally). Stick with a single class (whichever you find most comfortable to drive) and earn all the upgrades for your car. If you are unable to beat the opponents in Hillclimb at the higher difficulty levels, this is a good alternative.
