I wasnt doing this method the whole time and it took me 7hours30mins racing.
The achievement didnt unlock right away, i had to do another race.

This is the way i got to Elite rank:
Setup a new ranked game
Choose Japan
Event Downhill Drift Festival
Race length to long
Damage on
Collisions on.

Sit in the lobby as ready (press cn_Y) and wait for someone to join, once they do and the race begins its just one big downhill track where you will race alone, so you will get the 5 points for finishing and the 3 points for a clean race (seeing as you're on your own there is no opponents to hit, it doesnt matter if you hit the sides, but dont fall off) this is just for finishing the race, if you happen to win you'll also get an extra point for winning and another point for each person you beat who is a higher rank than you.
The race only takes a couple minutes so this is also a very quick way.
Once the race is finished head back to the lobby, quit out and create a new game, that way you have already picked the event.

You need 1200 points for this achievement, so at a minimum of 8 points a race thats 150 races.
This will obviously be alot quicker boosting, just get the other racers to search for the settings you used to create.
Please refer to my solution Solution for Online Legend in GRID for the breakdown of the ranks.

In the video i purposely lose and hit walls to show the points still exceed 8, i get 6 for finishing and 3 for a clean race in the video.... here it is.
