Try to do this in Open difficulty.

All those cars are quite similar except one. Lancia Stratos. I know its power-to-weight ratio looks tempting but don't take it. It is extremely hard to control car and you would have problems with finishing stages, especially in Greece and Sweden. I personally took Opel Kadett but Fiat is also good choice because it's easier to control. In my opinion, RWDs are the hardest to control. They don't drive in straight line, they dance from side to side. This, combined with small number of available RWDs in all classes, means that you won't probably love this class.

Speaking about championship itself, you want to aim at win in Germany. Your super AI would mess one race, which will give you the second event win. You want to win one more event and be second in every other. If you have one more event left and you see that your super AI made clear race and you lost your first stage of your last event, don't continue. Times, which AI makes, are randomized while changing events (or locations). This may be used to your advantage. You lost with AI in first event by 5 seconds? Memorize his time, go to dashboard (don't continue) and restart the game. Enter your championship and retire. If his time is beatable, restart and beat it. You can even try this several times and eventually he would have technical problems and lose a lot to first place, you will have safe win and few points advantage from that event.

Instead of trying to win everything, try to master few tracks which are comfortable with you and you feel good driving them. You should aim at both asphalt locations (Germany and Monte Carlo) which are the easiest. Finland is very fast but deceptive. Those fast turns are hard to control in RWD at fast speed and all those jumps will kill your suspension. Sweden is a narrow, winter route. Wales and Greece are two similar in terms of conditions locations, both are at gravel, both have a lot of trees at sides and it is very easy at both of them to fall out of the track. I'd suggest trying to master Greece but take anything which is suitable for you. In the remaining three you should finish safely at second place. Smash restart button and continue only when you got good times.
