    This is one of the hardest achievements in any racing game in my opinion.

    Each track needs a certain threshold of points to obtain platinum.
    You must meet all bonus objectives as well as meet the point threshold.

    Please feel free to help contribute to the solution if you know the easiest combination of assists, cars, or difficulty. With that said, I will post and update this as I progress what has worked for me, as well as update with other people's info. Please use the following format and I will include it in the solution.

    Pony Car (Track 1) - 1,125,000 required/1,142,647 obtained
    Car- 1971 Mustang Mach 1
    Difficulty - Pro 55%
    Suggested Line - Braking only
    Braking - Off
    Steering - Simulation
    Traction and Stability - Off
    Shifting - Manual w/ clutch
    Damage, Fuel, Tire wear - Simulation
    Rewind - Off
    Comments: Needed 68% assists to get platinum for me. Change your controller to put the clutch on the A button, manual shifting is easy once you get the hang of it. I failed twice at 66% assists to make enough points. See Erod's video below.

    Super Street Heroes (Track 2) - 1,300,000 required/1,346,712 obtained
    Car- 2010 Nissan 370Z
    Difficulty - Pro 55%
    Suggested Line - Braking only
    Braking - Off
    Steering - Simulation
    Traction and Stability - TCS Only
    Shifting - Manual w/ clutch
    Damage, Fuel, Tire wear - Simulation
    Rewind - On
    Comments: The Lancer GSR in 1st is a bitch in this one, and can take over first place and have a huge lead. I countered it by making sure I had been in the top 3 by the first 2 turns. I finally caught him at the end of the 4th lap when I smashed him into the wall, it was very satisfying. lol. Use replay to make perfect turns and help you catch this guy.

    Executive Performance (Track 3) - 1,300,000 required/1,345,171 obtained
    Car- GTR Black Edition (Free reward from Forza Hub)
    Difficulty - Pro 55%
    Suggested Line - Off
    Braking - ABS on
    Steering - Simulation
    Traction and Stability - Off
    Shifting - Manual
    Damage, Fuel, Tire wear - Simulation
    Rewind - On
    Comments: You only need to get third place to meet all requirements. Abuse Rewind.

    Raptor Strike (Track 4) - 975,000 required/1,146,978 obtained
    Car- 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
    Difficulty - N/A
    Suggested Line - Off
    Braking - Off
    Steering - Simulation
    Traction and Stability - TCS Only
    Shifting - Manual w/ clutch
    Damage, Fuel, Tire wear - Simulation
    Rewind - Off
    Comments: Its tough to get all the pins and finish in time, but with the right route, its very easy, also a very short race so mistakes aren't such a big deal. I got quite a bit over, you could probably turn on an extra assist here, however, I didnt seem to have any issues with the setup that I had. See Erod's video below.

    Italian Greats (Track 5) - 1,325,000 required/1,372,764 obtained
    Car - 2013 Ferrari 458 Speciale
    Difficulty - Pro
    Suggested Line - Off
    Braking - Off
    Steering - Simulation
    Traction and Stability - TCS Only
    Shifting - Manual w/ clutch
    Damage, Fuel, Tire wear - Simulation
    Rewind - On
    Comments: The Ferrari has great acceleration and great cornering. Make sure you are getting a near flawless run by using rewind if you mess up on a corner or what not. I didn't end up catching up to #1 until about the time lap 1 was over. For reference, my first lap was 2:42 and my 2nd was 2:36.

    K1LL3R BEEZI managed to get the first 3 done with these settings:
    Difficulty - Pro
    Suggested line - Braking Only
    Breaking - ABS Off
    Steering - Sim
    Traction and Stability - Off
    Shifting - Automatic
    Damage - Sim
    Rewind - Off

    Cars:
    Race 1 - Mustang Mach 1 (or whatever it's called that had the max PI)
    Race 2 - Nissan 370Z
    Race 3 - 2013 Audi R8

    TCS seemed to help the cars accelerate much quicker than if it was on, meaning I could get faster exits out of corners and catch the AI even if they were faster. Also slamming it up through corners helps if your close to an opponent. In the 2nd event especially, once you start head all the way over to the right hand side and you can pass half the field using the pit lane exit.

    The Spa race with traffic was annoying though. I turned TCS back on so my car wouldn't spin out every time I accelerate and I believe I also set the difficulty to Expert instead. Still managed a platinum that way. Even then I got lucky when the AI got caught in traffic. I will post more tips as I get my last 3 medals. I did do one in the DLC though.

    I strongly recommend that you finish every other achievement before attempt this method, since we are going to reset the game app to initial configurations several times.

    If you have a few platinum medals to do and don't wanna wait for easy spotligths events or even are having a hard time getting most of then we are going to erease our saves files and play until we reach the event called Raptor Strike (so make sure you dominate this particular event, it's the easyest one), get a platinum medal then repeat this process. The progress do increase despite the save being deleted.

    Here is what to do:

    1 - Go to Windows Settings -> System -> Apps & Features

    2 - Find Forza Apex and click on it, then click Advanced Options and then Reset.

    3 - Open the game. When the game start interupt the synchronisation by clicking Cancel and starting a fresh game.

    4 - Play until you reach Raptor Strike, get your platinum.

    5 - Check your progress.

    6 - Repeat

    toast

    As QuickMythril has pointed out in the comments you can copy and move your save data to another folder just before the Raptor track, return it up to the original one, and then stop the syncing from the cloud. This should save a lot of time.

    KaewynConfirmed working Oct 24, 2020. The progress shown here didn't update even after a rescan, but once I hit 10 runs the achievement popped. Good solution!

    FaSCoRPcould be my damn Windows 10, those "game services" are glitchy / beta

    LvxI have done at least 15 races at this point, nothing. Tracking seems to be bugged since the title change. How did people unlock this?

    EDIT: It unlocked 8 hours later lol. I'd already given up.

    It's worth adding that Platinum medal from Spotlight challenges also count so if you just can't sqeeze any more performance from carrer evnts just wait and try Spotlight series. They rotate every week, usually on Tuesday.

    Try to mix racing aids with highest or 2nd highest difficulty. My usuall setup was Unbeatable + autoshift and abs on or manual shift+pro diff with abs on. Rarely had to put ABS off.
    Obviously events will be easier to beat after finishing career, some spotlight events and using medals to unlock best cars.
    2 career events out of my reach: Ariel Atom one and 'Speed without limits' in Rio. Geting all bonus objectives in one race was too hard.

    FLD Marshal Z0DThe trick doesn't work.
    Maybe you think the difficulty has gone down so you start playing better because you're calmer thinking the drivers are now at a lower level

    Mr GranstaffWhy did the video end so early? Would have liked to have seen the end results with the appropriate XP modifiers.
