All of these challenges can be completed with a controller and the Rookie set up, with all of the assists left on.

(Guides for the NTSC version suggest you will need a wheel and / or adjust the set up to Pro, but I know this is not the case.)

There are a few harder races, around 5 caused me some pain and took multiple retries, but the majority you will unlock on you first attempt.

Quite often the key to the harder challenges lies in getting a good start, passing as many cars as quickly as possible as this will set you up nicely for the remainder of the challenge.

If this is the case, make use of the very quick re-load times and try different lines until you find the one that works. It can be frustrating when you clip a car and have to retry, or get nudged of track, but stick at it.

For me it was the event's on Infineon that tended to be the toughest, as with all the assists on, the car can seem to behave a bit oddly,
I found the key was not to push to hard in the 2 chicane type sections after the start/finish line, push too much and it's easy to put yourself off track.

In other instances the focus needs to be on keeping in the draft zone. I found on this type of challenge a quick release and re-apply of the throttle was enough to stop me drifting to high, out of the draft zone in the corners.
It also allowed me to drop back a tiny bit if was right on the bumper and that gave me a bit more time to judge the corner turn in point.

It's a fairly simple technique to master and with a bit of practice, hopefully it will work for you too.

The most difficult challenge is probably the Ryan Newman Driver Challenge.
At first it seems impossible to catch and pass him, however if you make sure to stay in the draft zone, even if he seems too far ahead for it to make a difference, you will slowly catch him.
For me I only just beat him, I was close to him going into the final lap, then right on the bumper going into the last corner and my only opportunity to pass came on the final run to the finish line, it really is that tight on time.
After a few tries you will know if you stand a chance of catching as you go into lap 3.
(edit after doing NTSC version - go into settings and turn off auto braking for this one)
