    First you need to complete the side quests 'Old Times' and 'Wild Ride' in Alexandria.
    Then you can race in the races.
    You'll also get the achievement to destroy an opponents chariot during these races as it's pretty vital to take out a couple of racers to gain track position.

    Go to Tournaments and complete the first one (all others are locked).
    I got 2nd place in race one, won Race two and came third in race three. But destroying the chariots of the front runners helped too. In each race you get points for finishing top 5.
    Best to (obviously) aim for 1st, which is 5points.

    Shadow 00 FoxThis is a STUPID STUPID mode... this stupid mode as well as the ridiculous cutscene bosses for Aya have cost this entire game 2 whole stars on the rating. So STUPID.

    Dragonborn GearDon't be afraid to go through the "Tutorial Race" to get the hang of it. I easily got 1st in all three races for Nike's Winged Victory, and had PLENTY of leeway after just coming in first the first two with 10 points and the second guy behind me having 4... (i.e. I could have come in last the last race). The Tutorial teaches what buttons to press, and while it does say "hold Drift button around corners", I still used the tapping method. It took a few times around the track during the tutorial to figure out when to press drift, but still a very easy achievement.

    Dr Frat StarThe best way to get this achievement is to watch the leaderboard and target the opponents that are close to you and ram them so you can knock them out of the race. If you do that, then it won't require you to come in first in all the races.

    Basically after completing the quest 'Old Times' the hippodrome should unlock go up to the doors (or fast travel to it from the map) to gain entrance.

    Simply select the Nike's Winged Victory tournament and go through all three races. You do not have to win all three but the nearer to the top you get the better your chances for victory! After winning the tournament overall the achievement should unlock!

    Let's keep on cheevin' together!
