    After going through all four seasons, which is the introductory part of the game, you'll qualify for the Horizon roster and also unlock the respective achievement. Upon doing that, the drag strip will also be unlocked and a new event will be available just to the west of the Horizon Festival, titled "Horizon Festival Drag Strip."

    By going to the Autoshow and pressing cn_Y, you can filter out the cars that are not eligible. Scroll down and select "Hot Hatch", then press cn_B. The selected type needs to be "Hot Hatches" specifically and not another hatchback type, like "Retro Hot Hatches" etc. Then you can press cn_X to sort the Hot Hatches by Class. The better stock car of the bunch for this achievement is the Audi S1, which comes with an AWD drivetrain, offering a nice launch off the line. Buy that and then head to event.

    It's a drag race, so obviously you'll be racing in a straight line. The achievement will pop if you manage to cross the line with a sub-25-second time, which is pretty easy with the stock S1. If you're still struggling for whatever reason, you can just auto-upgrade the car to the next class or search for a basic tune I've shared to the Storefront, using my Gamertag or typing "hatch me if you can" in the description.

    EDIT: Make sure you don't create a custom Blueprint while going for this one, since it doesn't count towards it it seems. Use the default one for Hot Hatches instead. Thanks to users "A Volvo Driver" and "Borg561".

    LockieI did it in a B class hot hatch. You would have to be driving very slowly to get over 25 seconds it seems. laugh

    The first step is to unlock the Horizon Life by completing the game's introduction. Doing so will unlock the Horizon Festival Drag Strip near the Hub.

    At this point, you'll need a Hot Hatch in your garage. Feel free to check your garage for one that unlocked through wheelspins, or go to the autoshow and buy one, like the Ford Fiesta ST. You want to sort the cars by Championship to make this easier.

    Now head to the event and start it. Hold the gas once the race starts and complete it within 25 seconds to unlock the achievement.

    Supastar1980This was spot on. Lucky I already had the car you mention on here so I didn't have to pay for it. +1 upvote

    I have created a step by step video guide, but the basic steps are also below:

    If you haven't already done so the first step is to unlock the Horizon Life by completing the game's introduction. After this you will have access to the Horizon Festival Drag Strip near the Hub.

    Hop in a Hot Hatch (specifically and not another hatchback type). If you don't already have one from wheelspins or the car pass you can always buy one through the Autoshow or the Auction House.

    I have used the 2003 Volkswagen Golf R32, This only costs 20,000 CR to buy through the Auto Show, but you can also pick this up for as low as 2,000 CR through the Auction house. and once its purchased it doesn't require any upgrades or tuning in order to win!

    Once you are in a hot hatch, head to the Horizon Festival drag strip, start a drag race and drive in a straight line!!!!

    Sonic6LThis achievement is glitched for me. I've done the Horizon drag strip four times, under 25 seconds in a Golf R32 and it didn't pop.
