First up, you must win at least one match of each Ranked multiplayer variation. Not including Race or GTA Race (we'll come to these), they are:

Mafiya Work
Car Jack City
Team Deathmatch
Team Mafiya Work
Team Car Jack City
Cops 'n Crooks (win as both Cops AND Crooks in the same match)
Turf War
Deal Breaker
Hangman's NOOSE
Bomb da Base II

Note that you can only do some of these game types with friends in Party Mode, the rest will have to be done with random people. The game types you can play in Party Mode are:

Team Deathmatch
Team Mafiya Work
Team Car Jack City
Cops 'n Crooks
Turf War

Now, you also have to win EVERY RACE in EVERY RACE TYPE in both Race AND GTA Race. There are a total of 54 races, bring the grand total amount of races you need to win to 108.

You only need 2 people for the races to start but it is very hard to boost for this as getting matched up with friends is very hard and the races don't usually start until there is 6+ people.

This will take awhile and needs plenty of dedication. Good luck!

Here are some very handy tip posted Johnny Jerkweed in the Comments section:

Johnny Jerkweed said:
For the road races, don't try to be the fastest. Play conservatively and let everyone else screw up. Slow down for hard corners. Most people lay on the gas the entire time and overshoot corners. The time they waste backing up to make the turn is way more then what they gain by accelerating non-stop the whole race.

Try the different car choices until you find one you're comfortable with. I've been using supercars just because I got used to them due to it being the default choice. My preffered supercar is Turismo because it takes turns the best. Most people pick the Comet for some reason, it could be the fastest but it is AWFUL at turning.

I prefer to put traffic on high to kind of level the playing field a little when playing against others who have all the tracks memorized and are good at them. This bit of randomness could screw up more experienced players and since I feel I'm pretty good and dodging traffic it can work to my advantage.

Once you beat a regular (non-gta) race, try to get the gta version of it next while the track layout is still fresh in your mind.

For helicopters, the Anhillator is the fastest but can be difficult to handle. Unlike street races though, it's worth it to go for speed in this case.

For the cannonball runs and free races, I press start immediately, while the timer is counting down and set the waypoint to the first checkpoint. You should be able to do this and back out of the start menu before the race even starts. Another thing about waypoints is, although they only show the fastest 'legal' route, I still recommend using them, especially on ones involving bridges. If you don't, you could end up under a bridge you're supposed to cross and no where near the on-ramp to it.
Here is a checklist of all races. It will help keep track of what you have won and what you need to win.
