If you were discouraged from trying to get this because of the gold one, fear not, the bronze times/scores are mostly pretty easy given the right cars.

Using the Huracán (full elite and drift tuned, including spoiler and drift tyres) for anything involving drift score (Drift Contest, Drift Trial, Touge), and the Beck Kustoms F132 for anything speed related (Sprint, Circuit, Time Trial), I was getting bronze on most events first try even with a couple of scrapes (i.e. crashes or losing a drift by hitting the barrier).

I found the most annoying events to be the Touge and Drift Contests, due to other racers getting in the way. However, they sometimes prove helpful by pushing your drift a bit further or to use as a buffer to avoid a scrape.
Regarding the former, don’t worry about being in first place all of the time, the drifts are more important and as long as you’re at least middle of the pack, you should be more than capable of winning.

A couple notes on drifting if you’re new to it, or new to max drift tuning:
- Feather the gas
- If you’re concerned you’re going to hit something or need to straighten up, LET GO of everything with maybe a little flicking of the LS
- If you’ve got a wide bend, initiate the brake early to maximise the drift, the longer it goes on, the faster the points climb!
- Using nitrous at about the halfway mark can extend your drift by a couple thousand points

These are a couple notes from my experience since no one had a guide here.
If there’s any other tips you think I should mention, or want me to try go into more detail, comment below.

Best of luck!
