    *Video showing method added*

    I wasnt doing this method the whole time and it took me 10hours25mins racing.
    You get a minimum of 8 XP points a race (5 for finishing a 'long' race but its just one big lap and 3 for a clean race) with possible extra XP points for beating players.
    The achievement didnt unlock right away, i had to do another race.

    This is the way i reached Legend 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 (around 2minutes) so this is also a very quick way.
    Once the race has ended head back to the lobby, quit out and create a new game, that way you have already picked the event.

    You need 2000 points for this achievement, so at a minimum of 8 points a race thats 250 races.
    This will obviously be alot quicker boosting, just get the other racers to search for the settings you used to create.

    Here is a breakdown of the ranks:
    Jr. Rookie: 0
    Jr. Rookie *: 10
    Jr. Rookie **: 20
    Jr. Rookie ***: 30
    Rookie: 40
    Rookie *: 50
    Rookie **: 60
    Rookie ***: 70
    Adv. Rookie: 80
    Adv. Rookie *: 90
    Adv. Rookie **: 100
    Adv. Rookie ***: 110
    Jr. Pro: 120
    Jr. Pro *: 130
    Jr. Pro **: 140
    Jr. Pro ***: 150
    Pro: 170
    Pro *: 190
    Pro **: 210
    Pro ***: 230
    Sr. Pro: 250
    Sr. Pro *: 270
    Sr. Pro **: 290
    Sr. Pro ***: 310
    Champion: 350
    Champion *: 400
    Champion **: 450
    Champion ***: 500
    Superstar: 600
    Superstar *: 700
    Superstar **: 800
    Superstar ***: 900
    Elite: 1200
    Elite *: 1400
    Elite **: 1600
    Elite ***: 1800
    Legend: 2000

    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.

    SpilnerAh someone commented on my other solution saying after getting legend in a derby race that it didn't pop till they did another race.

    DELT4 UKI've been doing HKS with two accounts and I was receiving the full 5/6 points per race up until I hit Elite rank and then it dropped down to 1. I'm not sure if this is because of the vast difference in rank between my second account or whether this is rank specific.

    SpilnerI didnt notice a difference with racing against different tanks but perhaps as its the same 'person' thats the problem?

    guide to "Online Legend" achievement in Race Driver: Grid.
    You can obtain 25 points every 2 and a half minutes and that is with load times for the winner. This can be obtained by two people boosting or if you have two copies of the game and two xboxes. In the online multiplayer mode create a match and set the race to Japan with race on HKS Freestyle Drift. Turn on damage and collision and set the race length to long. As soon as the race starts take whoever is going first or your main tag if you are boosting alone and drift on the very first corner on your left. As soon as you get points for a drift just stop drifting. Let the points count and show on the top right of your screen. Now the second person or your secondary tag will ram their car directly into the wall in front of them. As long as the second car crashes hard enough to become undrivable the race is over. The winner will get 8 points each for races 1 and 2 and 9 points for race 3. This is the fastest you can do this.

    WKFJonesybest solution, thanks

    Dr MartyI left a positive vote for the solution but perhaps you should change the tone of it. It comes over as rude and cocky. I agree with witter, you sound like a child.

    UPDATE: I noticed the edits smile nice work!

    DELT4 UKStill the best solution in 2019!

    Update --

    I've been doing HKS with two accounts and I was receiving the full 5/6 points per race up until I hit Elite rank and then it dropped down to 1. I'm not sure if this is because of the vast difference in rank between my second account or whether this is rank specific. Or it could be that there's a point cap for each day you win

    Choose the Dowhill Drift Festival in japan, set the race lenght to long and damage on. The race is just one downhilltrack and you will race alone so will get the points for finishing and for clean racing.
