This achievement will take time and patience, and lots of restarting.

There are two times when one can properly approach the gates, in first with enough of a lead for little interference or in last.

If the fan run is near the start of a level, allow the AI a headstart of about 10-15 seconds so they won't be in the way. This allows you to try the fan run without being attacked, and if you mess up, you can restart without losing much time. You of course will need to be skilled enough to retake the race and finish in the top 3, but it's not too hard to do on easy.

Another strategy when approaching fan runs as a means to fan targets is to gain a large lead in first and attempt the fanrun. This plan's issues include interference from the shock powerups and shunts, but it is much easier to place this way in a difficult race.

The last tip I have is for one of the races in showdown, The SanFran track, there will be a gate off a jump and another gate below an underpass the jump will launch you over, to prevent this, fire a nitro backwards to stop in midair, good luck with the rest of the fanrun from there, because the gates are put in a spiteful formation that makes the joy of figuring out the second gate disappear fast. But airbraking in midair is COOL. That is all.
