    Hi, this isn't a real solution but maybe it helps you:

    The 2.4 Hours of the Ring Event is available in the Hopper Menu. Every Race is a P-class event and takes 2 hours and 40 minutes (!).

    You have to finish the race to get the achievement, don't leave the race before it ends, even if you reached the 250 miles / 402 km.

    The hardest part is to find a race, cause every event takes 2 h 40 min. I would suggest searching after lobbys until you find one where the race ends in 30 minutes or less. Stay in the lobby and wait till the others finish their race and you can start. Sometimes you will be lucky enough to enter a lobby thats only a few seconds before the start of the race, but most people wont have this luck.

    English isn't my mother tongue, so maybe there are some language mistakes.

    EDIT: Some people said this challenge is harder to get than the other ones cause they had less time left when they reached 250 miles. So keep pushing and drive fast and clean.

    CraziestSock@xtowers Thanks for the info. I did what you said but by the time I got to 250 I only had like 10 minutes left so I did another lap and then after it popped! Thanks!

    XtowersThis one took me longer to get, too. I had about 10 minutes left when I got 250, so I just kept driving and ended with about 265 miles. Popped it along with German Connection because I was driving the Audi. Started the race with about 8 racers, 4 seemed to leave right away, and another 2 lost connection. So good luck everybody!

    XtowersBTW, having someone to chat with will help immensely. Also, the rewards seem to be 60k credits (+affinity) and 60k exp, no matter your finishing position. Pretty pitiful for the amount of racing you do. That's enough for about 5 player levels and 3 affinity levels.

    ozbuffinaticThanks for this info, I'm about to use it. About your English writing, you've done a better job than some people I know who speak English as their main language. Well Done.

    XonatronI accomplished this last night placing 1st out of 12 racers as was awarded 60,000 credits + extras + 140,000 credits for leveling up 4 times (35,000 * 4). I was expecting a (much) bigger reward, in the millions.

    XtowersWhen you think about it, you can get roughly 10k credits every 10 minutes doing career races. In my opinion, they should be giving you at least 240k credits/exp at the end of the race, but 300k-500k would be more reasonable since you can't hardly take any breaks, and it is a huge feat to not get disconnected during the race.

    Chiken BiscuitI used the Mazda 757 (I think that's what it's called), ended up in fourth of the 11 that finished with 327 miles. All of us in the top 4 used the Mazda. Just check for a tuning set-up on these large tracks. Look for anything rated 5 stars, most are good, and a 10 second advantage per lap adds up quick on these endurance races
