    The following can be applied to all difficulties although this guide is mainly for Classic (aka scourge) mode.
    First things first, accept the fact that you will be here for a while and prepare for patience and long sharp sighs. Do some test runs and learn the turns (3 long taps on the brakes should suffice even if you don't think so, I noticed braking seems confusing because of the way it feels and looks, makes it look like you're actually needing more brakes, I assure you three taps will suffice for all but that dreaded first turn. The key to winning is the first person camera. I literally spent hours trying to win in third person but when I switched to first person I won on the 2nd try, there are literal control changes that are blatantly obvious in first person.

    The last tip is for the first turn of the lap, there is a billboard on your right, use that as a braking reference on the 2nd and last lap, the first lap just ride the inside and try not to spin out, literally just coast and lightly tap the gas (AND FIRST PERSON CAMERA) Im telling you my friends that will be your key to win.

    Unfortunately there is NO cut and dry way of winning and chances are you may get frustrated, but I found this was the easiest way to complete, but either way on classic, you will have to learn the track whether you study it on YouTube or gameplay. Good luck. And for the sake of the universe....Godspeed.

    Sipuli91If you're 2nd on the last lap, don't worry! Game is scripted to have the 1st car crash in the last turn. Avoid collision with them and you're good.

    Edit: apparently this achievement can glitch. I have the one from the previous mission, the one from the mission after this, but this refused to unlock.
