You can get this achievement during season 3.
In every season you will be introduced to some new clubs before the WSR can start.
All this clubs do have their own prestige driver. Now you have to place better than this AI driver in an event of his club.
The last of this clubs is the drift club "Haruna Kyojin", which is the third in season 3.
If you finish an event in first position you obviously also beat the prestige driver, though beating only him should be enough.
This driver will always be presented to you in a short video sequence right before the event starts.

There is a total of 8 clubs, in detail as follows:

Season 1 (America):
New Union (Race club, Champ: Harrison Carter)
Trans America Pacers (Faceoff club, Champ: Bruno Silva)

Season 2 (Europe):
Divizero (Time Attack club, Champ: Lucien Galfione)
Eliminacion (Elimination club, Champ: Lorenzo Vela)
Euro Rand (Race club, Champ: Callum Kirkwood)

Season 3 (Asia):
Kowloon Dragons (Touge club, Champ: Zhi Huang)
Dubai VIP (Checkpoint club, Champ: Saeed Nasser)
Haruna Kyojin (Drift club, Champ: ???)

Note:
Several people have reported that this achievement did not properly unlock for them although it should have. In that case systematically replaying (and winning) club events through the timeline mode can help to make it unlock.

However, the first thing you should give a try would be the following:
Simply redo the face-off events in season one.
Why?
In the face-off events there are multiple opponents, but you race only against 3 of them during the different stages, while the others "eliminate" themselves.
So it could happen that you win the event overall, but you didn't encounter the champion of the club (couldn't find out the name so far...) and though you have beaten him indirectly anyway, it possibly counts only if you beat him yourself in a face-off.
