The drag races themselves may take a bit of getting used to, although you should be looking at no more than 20-30 minutes to unlock this achievement based on playing against Very Easy AI.

You can also unlock the following achievement, during your first heat against the AI
http://www.trueachievements.com/a192401/holeshot-achiev....htm

The first part of the drag race is the staging element, where you roll up and stop between the 2 lines. Don't worry if you overshoot the line a little during a heat, I did that once and the race still went ahead.

Then wait until the lights come on and floor it.

You will need to change gears manually using the cn_A button, and timing, especially from 1st to 2nd gear can be a bit tricky.

With ABS and TC on, you will find the cars want to snake / torque steer across the lane, or into the side-wall, if this is too much of an issue, you can turn on Steering Assist and that will help greatly and not slow you too much.
You can still win if you clip the wall, but crossing the central line is a disqualification.

If you find you are just getting beaten, then you can tune you car to the following settings
Differential: -100 Fully Locked
Downforce: -100 Lowest
Suspension F & R: +100 Hardest

That will give you a car that is very quick in straight line and may help shave off those fractions of a second.

There are 3 location's and each consists of 4 rounds and each round has 2 passes.

You progress onto the next round based on your best time, so even if you do cross the line and get a DQ on a run, as long as you beat the AI on either of the 2 runs you will win and continue.

You can re-start at any point and still unlock the achievement.
