YouTube videos for the expert Ring Master events at the end.
All the credit for the videos goes to "Geoff The Hero" and FreezeCracker.com

Note: DLC events and championships DO NOT COUNT for this achievement. Although, you can use DLC boats if you want to. The 3 DLC tracks are "Atlantis", "Castle Von Boom" and "Bermuda Triangle" (last 3 when you're choosing a track). The 3 DLC championships are "Lap It Up", "Mad Dash" and "Tempest" (last 3 when you're choosing a championship).

First of all: I strongly recommend that you always use the boat with the best handling!
(my personal choice for expert events is Cutthroat, but if you have the DLC, the game gives you a lot more options, so if you're not happy with my personal choice, just try other boats and see which one is the best for you)

- Race and Gauntlet -

You can knock out these events easily by choosing a Novice boat. By doing that, the difficulty of the event will also be Novice, so you shouldn't have any trouble at all to complete them.

- Ring Master - (videos at the end)

Completing the Novice and Pro events should be easy. The trouble comes with the Expert events.
Before trying these events, I suggest to do the Special Delivery achievement. Collecting all the hidden packages will let you know of almost every alternative route of each track.

- Use boost wisely! You don't need to be always using boost to get the required time.
- You can miss 1-3 rings on almost every track and still get the gold time (if you're not being able to get the required time, always remember that there's something you can improve on your performance) [thanks: Oddworld x].
- Beware of the waves! These are your worst enemy in the game. They will make you lose control if you don't stop accelerating.
- Memorize the tracks! You'll only be able to get good times if you know the best way to position your boat before each ring.

- Championship -

In championship events, remember that you don't need to win every Race / Ring Master / Gauntlet. You only need to have the most points at the end.

Again, the Novice and Pro championships should be a piece of cake.

For the Expert championships, I recommend that you start with Needle GP, because at this point you should be familiar with every Ring Master event.

For the rest of the Expert championships these are the tips I can give:
- For either Races or Gauntlets, you MUST pick almost every shortcut and have boost almost all the time, otherwise you will not win!
- Remember to save boost during jumps. Using boost will not make you go faster during jumps, but you should still use it to control your boat in midair.
- Don't forget that you have a "Restart Game" option in the pause menu! It will just restart the event that you're in and not the whole championship. So if you're doing a bad performance, just restart.
