    all the other solutions are great, but if you want to kill 2 birds with one stone i would suggest the following.
    1. go to bucket list, far right column (world championships)
    2. click on start button.
    braking abs off
    steering simulation
    stability on
    traction on
    shifting auto, unless you like the manual
    suggested line off
    damage, fuel limited
    rewind on
    opponent professional
    upgrades upgraded
    class rest. open
    this will give you +70% earning for cash
    3.pick whatever make of car you are trying for
    4. race each event. remember each race for each event has 2 heats so it will take awhile. but that is whats great about it.
    for all 10 events you get
    F: 125,900
    E: 135,800
    D: 144,000
    C: 157,000
    B: 197,000
    A: 204,000
    S: 209,000
    R3: 221,000
    R2: 236,000
    total : 1,871,700 xp, but its 2 heats so 3,743,400 xp. you only need 2,642,500 xp to reach level 50. not only will you get the level 50 but will be working on your bucket list as well. be forewarned it does take awhile to do them all thou

    scntyboyHonestly I can't remember. You either get very little xp or no xp. I forget how this forza handed out xp for hired drivers

    The actual amount of affinity xp that's needed for the achievement is 2,642,500 (strange number)

    I would recomend doing this in the eventlist so you don't need to do extra races
    with some special settings and the #9 Peugeot 908,
    under Assists/Difficulty choose:
    Class Restriction: Open (this will allow you to enter races with R1 car instead of the original F,E,D,C,B,A,R3,R2
    Yes this will give you -25% bonus but just turn off some assists and you are on plus bonus again.

    Also, doing the world championchips with a R1 car won't hurt
    (you can enter all of them with the R1 car with class restriction to open) :D

    Hope this helped and comment before giving a negative vote if you think I'm wrong :)

    LimboPlatinumIf you need to farm this I have found the best way is to race in the Indy Oval, Affinity is based on miles driven so the Oval will give you the most Affinity for the time raced.

    IronInvoker47Figured out something new. I'm going through the achievement right now, so I don't have it at the time of writing, but I know it's working. I went with Peugeot like this guide suggested and I noticed that sometimes during the World Tour or during the event list I was leveling up in either Driver or Affinity while using a hired driver. I did some more testing on this and can confirm that you can get affinity with a hired driver ONLY if the affinity bonus is RANDOM. For whatever reason, a fixed percentage or amount of affinity will not be given to you.

    I went with the lower right event in the first chunk of events in the list, since that's a strictly R1 Peugeot event, and repeated the last race (it gives the most) yesterday, and went from 1,500,000Exp to 1,900,000Exp while I did my college work and messed around on other things. I'm really glad I don't have to actually race anymore.

    BonxyI tried the above as mentioned by @IronInfidel47 and i couldn't get it to work.

    Maybe i was doing the wrong race or something ?

    The best way to earn money and affinity is the same as TP x NeOnZz´s way, but on a different track. On Testrack layout A you can cut the corners (like you can see in the video below). You can do a map in like 20 seconds x 50 = 1000 seconds = 16 min 40 sec. Also difficulty can be adjusted for more money and affinity, so make sure you don't turn on anything unnecessary (Like the race-line or automatic transmission).
    Note: the video is taken from Forza motorsport 3, but the track is exactly the same as in forza 4.
    Edit: you need to download the launch track pack first to select the testrack maps. I got a code for this trackpack within the copy of the game, but you can download it on xblm as well.
    Edit: Go to assists and put driving on normal or simulation. If you put driving on assisted you will be driving against invisible walls.

    RandomAlecThis method does not work, at all. Same result as "NOTHINGFACE 32".

    lfcjohnThough the guide is not friendly but it's really the fastest way, i play through the bucket list until car manufacturer level to 47, then using the above guideline which make me reach level 50 within an hour. Remember to use private online match instead of freeplay!
