This one can be annoying, and you'll need to suspend any belief that 'Rubbing is Racing'.

Once the main story is completed, the first step is to buy the Koenigsegg Regera, which will cost 882,450 at the Race dealership and is good for a couple other achievements too.

There are a lot of races to choose from, and picking the right one is crucial. By now you've completed the story and unlocked all the events. You want to avoid the west side of the map and the east side of the map because there are a lot of turns and walls.

One thing to note is that you CAN hit at least a couple small objects like a traffic cone and a stick on the side of the road. I hit several and still got the achievement. What you absolutely can't do is crash, scrape, bump, nudge, or look at a car/wall funny.

I tried several options for races, and the one I would recommend is "Fight Into the City", found in the north. This is the one I got the achievement in my first attempt, and the reason I recommend it is the very long and straight open road section in the middle. There are only four other racers, though they're also driving fast cars. You want to hover back until you start hitting that large straightaway, and then go as fast as you can and sneak by them all. Use this time to create as much separation between you and second place (likely Evangeline). Once you hit the city go slower and more careful around the turns. The final stretch is at a bridge which is straight and allows you to boost to victory.

Best of luck, and practice makes perfect.

When I got this I went for the DRAG version of this. The drag version has 1 sprint race you can do in the bottom right of the map. When I got this I made to sure to only hit gates, not even any other type of debris as they can be heavier.

The hardest is probably the swerving after the construction / dirt tunnel you have to do. There are two turns in the last 10% of the race that can be easily underestimated.

I made sure to pass my simple lvl140 opponents on the right at the start of the race, then just keep a steady pace. It took me a few tries but I estimate this is your best bet.

oh btw, you absolutely use boost to do the final (slightly curved) stretch
