    You can find this challenge in the TopGear Stig 1-1 Showcase category from the Career menu.
    I am unsure of the level required to unlock it, but I completed when on Driver level 14, so not too far into the game.

    For an easy Achievement, you can dial back the Drivatar skill level to New Racer, quickly overtake him on the first corner and complete the race without any real threat.

    Achievement unlocks after you have completed the race and receive credits.

    Borg561It appears that in order to earn the achievement you can't touch the Stig's car at all. The first time I did this I accidentally punted the Stig off the track around the first or second corner. Won the race, no achievement. Just raced it again, making sure not to touch the Stig's car and the achievement popped as soon as the race ended.

    namr3hInteresting. I sideswiped him to pass on a turn and still ended up getting the achievement just now. Hmm I guess you just can't be TOO aggressive perhaps.

    namr3hAlso on a side note, why is the achievement plural? There's only one event so it shouldn't be described as 'events'. If someone else does what Borg did, they may go searching for another event since they didn't get the achievement.

    TheIcemanComethTo piggy-back on namr3h's comment, it appears 'love taps' are OK for the achievement. I did touch Stig in the back at the first corner (he didn't lose any control) and I still got the achievement.
