Much like in the base game, the Formula Drift cars are key here. For me, I did all 5 drift zones with the same car -- #13 Ford Mustang 2015 Formula Drift. I believe the Formula Drift pack is available to Game Pass users as well (it was for me).
With this car I did all 5 drift zones on my first attempt (whereas with other cars I wasn't even coming close to 3-starring any of them).
The Five drift zones and their score requirements:
Southland 45,000 points
Merrow's Perch - 50,000 points
The Sleeping Giant - 60,000 points
Skildar Slopes - 70,000 points
Needle Climb - 200,000 points
Don't let the point totals mislead you -- I found Needle Climb actually quite easy, for me the one that I came closest to not 3-starring was The Sleeping Giant (req: 60K, I scored 63K, whereas Needle Climb was 200K req, but I scored 233K).
