    DLC details:

    • This Achievement requires DLC in order to attempt and unlock.

    • This Achievement can only be unlocked with the RX Supercars that are available in DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 4.

    • Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi is available in DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 3.

    • Both the track and cars are available as individual DLC items also.
    Yas Marina Circuit is a tricky course with multiple switchback sections. Having good momentum through these sections is the key to a good laptime.

    Some basic tips:

    • Do this in Time Trial, dry conditions.

    • Your car must be from the "RX Supercars 2019" Class.

    • Begin your lap by taking the Joker route on the previous lap. This gives you a faster entry into Turn 1.

    • Finish your lap by ignoring Turn 1's entry on the next lap. You'll gain half a second by refusing to brake.

    • Avoid the orange kerbs at all costs. At best they'll slow you down, at worst you'll roll the car.

    • Excessive sliding will slow you down. You should only need the handbrake for the 2 hairpins. With the right setup you won't need to handbrake the chicanes.

    • If you know you're not going to hit the target laptime, take the Joker Lap so that you can set yourself up for another run.

    • Achievement unlocks as soon as you cross the finish line, you don't need to end the Event.

    I've also created a short video guide with footage of my run, the Tuning Setup I used and some additional tips:

    Kriostyx Huge props for the solution for both a detailed guide and an excellent tuning setup, a big big upvote....

    .... nonetheless my opinion is that the time is simply not doable with a controller. If someone has done that, huge congrats for sure because for 99% of people there is surely no way. So I had to resort to Alyselle's excellent comment. Make an AI event, put them on very easy so they stay out of your way. On the first lap drive legit to avoid disqualification on the second lap and take the joker for the optimal line to start said second lap. Cut between the signs at the start instead of doing the chicane. Drive hard but normally after that and don't brake to cross the finish line.
