    This wasn't too difficult once I'd found the easier speed zones.

    Take an Ultima GTR 720 (for those without access to the 1020) and look through the shared tunes under Upgrades > Load Upgrade until you find a high-end S2 with a 10 in speed - a bit extra handling wouldn't go amiss as well, since the zones invariably have a few twists and turns.
    Edit #1 - Nosi90 has noted that the Ferrari FXX may be a better choice, although it is somewhat more expensive at 2.7M credits vs the Ultima's 150,000Cr. If you have it, or can justify the extra expense, give it a whirl.

    Edit #2 - Thanks to Groudon199 (and https://www.trueachievements.com/X+Mr+Plankton+X.htm for the independent confirmation) for advising that repeating the same speed zone works so, if you find one that's easy for you, just repeat it twice more to complete the challenge. Personally, I found the one due South of Surfer's Paradise easiest. Can't believe I didn't check that one myself... facepalm

    Alternate speed zones (and the ones I got this with) are two to the South-West of the Outback in the image below:

    The one in the Outback furthest South is tricky, but IIRC you only need to hit around 90mph for 3 stars.
    Don't forget you can use rewinds, even mid-zone, to ensure you hit the apexes and maintain your speed as best as possible.

    Nosi90I knew i wanted the Ferrari FXX so i saved up for it and it made these speed traps a breeze. Thought I'm sure the Ultima GTR is the best value for money.

    Chameleon1977Thanks - a little expensive for my taste(!), but added. Much appreciated.

    Groudon199You can use the same speed zone 3 times. It doesn't have to be 3 different ones.

    The Ol n DeWell, not only I did the same speed zone 4 times, but I had 3 stars every time, and I even beat my own speed each time, and did not get the challenge. zone was South Arid Plains, speed over 90 MPH, 2015 Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020 at a basic X 999 with no tuning... don't know what I did wrong. going to do another 2 zones now. stil getting +1 from me.

    Edit: challenge did pop after I visited the festival, looked at my cars to check details on my ultima, and then left the festival site.
