    At the current state, this achievement is kinda buggy. For 4 months between December, 2017 and March, 2018 the server just simply didn't register our Weekly Challenge times, no matter how many times you completed both of them. I suggest you to start doing this as soon as you start playing the game!!!

    All you have to do is to compete BOTH Weekly Events in 2 weeks in a row. The servers are refreshing on every monday, 12:00 (Central Europe Standard Time) so you can check which tier you finished and you can go for the next Weekly Challenges. On the third week, you should get the achievement. If for some reason it doesn't pop, it mean that one of your times wan't registered, so just keep trying and trying until you get the chivo. It is a pain in the ass, but there is no better solution for this, until Codemasters decide to fix the servers or the communication problem.

    Edit: Several people in the comment section says that you only have to complete one weekly event for the achievement. It might be true, unfortunately i cannot confirm it since i already unlocked the achievement. If you really not sure about it i still suggest you to complete both of them. Not just to be a 100% about the completion, but you also earn more credits what you can use to improve your team and garage furthermore.

    Colt45 UKCompleted both events: 22nd July - 28th July
    Completed both events: 29th July - 4th Aug
    Completed both events: 5th Aug - 11th Aug
    Completed 1st event and DNF on the 2nd: 12th Aug .. It's not popping up at all, so I gave up! What I do wrong? - I will try again once more when I get more info from Codemasters themselves or from this page.
    I did get the results at the end of each week but when does it pop up? So annoying! as I'm stuck at 95% now - just this 1 more achievement I need.

    You do NOT have to complete BOTH. I completed one last week and didn’t even attempt the second and DNF one and finished the other the previous week and the achievement popped for me today

    roolf92In first week i have completed first set of 6 races and after that on the first race of second weekly event i have crashed my car. So I waited until next week and completed all 6x2 races and with end of the second week it has unlocked for me. So I can confirm that you dont need to comlpete both weekly events

    One point to note - online achievements are blocked if you have an ongoing career championship. Finishing the event an re-attempting should allow the achievement to unlock.

    I happened to attempt this alongside finishing up the game, with the Triple Crown achievement. However, for a few weeks it wouldn't pop. I figured this was because I'd started one of the three Triple Crown events, so it was treated as in progress, and therefore blocked this popping.

    I'd completed the Rally event of the Triple Crown, then left the other events for a few weeks. In between, I finished a number of weekly challenges (in various combos - 1 challenge, both challenges etc.). Achievement didn't pop. Then, I completed 2 weekly challenges, finished the remaining Triple Crown events, and then reviewed the Competitive menu to receive my completion awards. At this point, this achievement popped. So it seems that the Triple Crown is treated as one championship

    venksbondMake sure no championship is active. If so just abandon it.
    Me: week 1: 1DNF & 1 completed
    week 2: 1 completed & 1DNF --> in this way I completed back to back events
    week 3: see last week race results & wait for achiv to POP.
