    Prerequisite:
    Top Gear Car Pack ($9.99 USD)
    - This pack includes the #66 Chaparral 2E

    Solution:
    For this challenge, you will need to select Rivals from the main menu, followed by Monthly Rivals Event. Select the first race in this event called "Wing And A Prayer" at the Mazda Raceway in Laguna. The only vehicle you will be able to select is your #66 Chaparral. Once you have loaded into race, select Start Race. Proceed to complete one lap, press the Menu button, and select Finish Race. After collecting your end of race rewards, you will be returned to the Monthly Rivals Event where you'll want to repeat this process 9 more times.

    Notes:
    - Laps take ~1:30 to complete (depending on skill).
    - It does not matter whether you beat your rival's time or not. Each time you select Finish Race, after completing a lap, it counts as a "Finish".
    - If you attempt to enter this event, you will be prompted to purchase the Top Gear Car Pack or the Season Pass (if you haven't downloaded it previously).
    - You do NOT need to purchase the Long Beach DLC in order to access this event. (Credit to PJ76uk for confirming this)
    - On the Post-Race screen after you've chosen "Finish Race", you can choose the Restart option. This will save some time by not having to go through the car select and loading screens each time. (Credit to Borg561)

    Enjoy!

    PJ76ukNegative was not from me - I deleted my solution for this achievement as yours was better (!) and your not allowed to vote on other solutions once you have submitted one for the same achievement! So the negative must be from someone else...

    The PusherThanks, II IceStorm II! Glad to read it, PJ76uk. I really appreciated the note bringing to light I had inaccurate info in my solution. I've made sure you received credit for the assist. I think negative voting turns people off from helping the community as a whole - potentially why most don't offer their solutions. Really, quite a bummer. Happy racing (and achievement hunting)!

    FF7 BryanSo $10 for the challenge... :(

    Chiken BiscuitIf you spend the $10 for that car pack, you will receive the Holden that you need for one of the Long Beach DLC achievements. So you might as well get it.

    XtowersCan't you just buy the car for $2.99? I'm on the fence whether or not I just want to buy the Car pass.

    FF7 BryanI would buy the car for just 2.99 but I don't see that option. It just gives me the $9.99 or $49.99 season pack.

    XtowersAh, bummer. I'm probably just going to skip this challenge then. I'd like to get the whole car pass eventually, but not for $50. That's just too much money. I'll wait for a sale or a better idea of what cars I'll need for future DLC.

    Borg561It should be noted that on the Post-Race screen after you've chosen "Finish Race", you can choose the restart option. This will save some time by not having to go through the car select and loading screens each time.

    wes coasnAnd the Long beach pack is free. Their was a glitch that said it cost $$$ but it has since been fixed.
