    Thank you everybody for your comments. There are a few things that can be clarified thanks to these comments.
    It looks like there are 3 different stats that combine to give your total number of completed races. There's the one on the General tab, the 2nd on Online and the 3rd on Blizzard Mountain.
    Additionally it seems as if this achievement is tracking all your completed races plus the number of snowmen smashed. So if you add the 3 different race stats and the number of snowmen it should come to roughly what the achievement tracker % shows.
    While grinding the Bucket List #4 it sounds like the quicker way is to get 19/20 and then restart the challenge, skipping all the reward screens that you have to sit through if you complete the challenge. Every 19 snowmen smashed should raise the achievement tracker by 2-3%.
    Once again thanks to everybody who commented with these points.

    Ok so obviously there are 2 different requirements for this achievement and it's on you which one you decide to go for.

    If you've previously met either of them then the achievement will pop immediately when you load up the game.
    And if you've already unlocked the full 2500G before this update and have been keeping up with the challenges then chances are you're pretty close to having done 1000 races. You can check by going into the menu, scrolling across to the Progress tab and selecting Stats. Then in the top right corner of the General stats you'll see Number Of Races. I can't confirm that this is the number used for these 4 title update achievements but it seems pretty likely.
    However doing the races, as with all 4 of these title update achievements, will be much slower than doing the skills.

    The easier and quicker way to pop this specific achievement will be going for the 1000 Snowman skills. Again you can check by going to the Progress tab, selecting Stats and then Blizzard Mountain. Down near the bottom of this page is the number of snowmen you've smashed. In my case after doing all the Blizzard Mountain DLC I only had about 60 of these so this is where the grind begins.

    From what I can see the quickest way to smash snowmen is to load up the Blizzard Mountain Bucket List #4 challenge which requires you to smash 20 snowmen in 2 minutes or less. This challenge sticks way more snowmen around Whitestone Village than there are in Freeroam mode and they all respawn each time you start the challenge. So run the challenge and immediately restart to do it over and over. Even after only doing it a couple of times I can get the 20 snowmen in about 90 seconds which if you add loading times works out to probably around 2 minutes per run which even if you're starting this from 0 should net you the achievement in roughly 100 minutes. Not nearly as bad as you might have originally thought.

    XJCreek87Mine unlocked after about 400 races and less than 250 Snowmen Smashed.
    Less than 650 total, so I guess mine unlocked early...

    Heroic BlanketUnlocked this with the following stats. 562 general races completed, 109 blizzard mountain races completed, 316 snowmen smashed, 13 online blizzard mountain races completed. That all ads up to exactly 1000, so looks like it combines all those 4 stats together when checking.

    Don NielsonThis method isn't working. The tracker doesn't go up while trying this.

    Shout out to Catatonic Nali
    I just wanted to make a quick guide

    Go to Blizzard Mountain
    Play Bucket List #4
    (Bucket list challenge #4 unlocks after you get 30 stars)
    Hit 19 snowmen then restart
    Every 2 games the tracker goes up 5%

    BlackRain228Good solution man I thought this one was going to be the worst out of the bunch but ended up being the fastest.

    shadowninja25Answered my own question (might want to add this to the guide). Bucket list challenge #4 unlocks after you get 30 stars.

    When i loaded the game i had just 35 snowman skills and around 700 races completed. The progress bar was at 70%. I started the bucket list 4(in Blizzard mountain of course) and for every 19 snowman smashed the progress increased by 3%. Got the achievement when my total snowman smashed was just 182. So it seems the progress is combined and starts to increase for either of the requirement from your current progress percentage. So you don't have to start doing one lap race to increase your achievement progress counter. Just start smashing snowman by loading this bucket list and once you reach 19 hits, pause and restart.

    iSpeedFreakKudos.. This works. Easier if you have achievement progress of more than 50%.. less grind on bucket list #4

    JustAnotherJayNot sure if something is messed up with Forza but when I tried this method, I did 19 snowmen twice. My snowman count was 58 before I started, after doing it twice (so 38 snowmen more), my count was only 65... the game doesn't seem to be accurately adding the snowmen from the Bucket List. Can anyone confirm/deny?
