    A warning to players who are looking to start DiRT 5: this achievement is currently very buggy. Progress may stop tracking. Some players report success with deleting local save files and/or simply playing until it starts tracking again. Right now, there is no guaranteed solution if your progress is frozen.

    UPDATE: As of November 17th, 2020, Codemasters has reduced the requirement from 10,000 miles to 1,000 miles.

    After completing all other achievements, around 6-8 hours of additional grinding may be required. The original solution is listed below for the "True Achievements 10k 2" Playground track.


    I have created a Playground to aid with this grueling achievement. Good news, the achievement can be grinded by simply using a wrench or rubber band (or other household item) to wedge your cn_RT down, and the car will rack up miles by itself. Just make sure to have the controller plugged in so it doesn't turn off.

    The track is called "True Achievements 10k 2". Go to PLAYGROUND, then DISCOVER, then hit cn_RB to SEARCH. Type in the name, select the track, and then drive off the starting platform into the narrow corridor below. The walls do all the work. No steering required.

    Some caveats:

    - A session only lasts for 60 minutes. Right now, there seems to be no way around this.
    - The session must end, but you don't have to go through the FINISH platform. Driving until the 60 minutes run out is fine.
    - Achievement progress only updates after the session is over.
    - Testing your own playground does provide infinite time, but mileage doesn't seem to track. It has to be a race/event session.

    The track requires the Subaru Impreza RX car. The car will slow down to 45-50mph in the corners, then accelerate to 105-110mph down the straights. It is recommended that you save this achievement until last, as completing the career will provide 40-50% progress.

    bm2494Can confirm based on my completion this morning if it stops tracking dont go the full 60 mins. Mine stopped at 95% ....but this method allowed me to complete it. The key here is finishing the race!!

    fejkfilipAfter update achievement still bugged and stuck at 89% in my case... what a dull game. They added content just to squeeze some more money out of that already dead game.

    PauldnbI found an in-game tracker for Miles driven, when game loads Profile > Stats everything is in there. when I checked mine earlier it said I am on 712 Miles Driven but I have a 76% tracking so just been trying to see if that would help with the achievement or not.

    I am on 780 miles now after playing around 2-3 hours tonight. its not started moving yet.. thought it may help someone though

    Edit :- My game is tracking again now, finally

    Mince lfcSo do you only get progress if you complete the full 60 minute session?

    Hobbess253Worked fine for me today - completed finally! Was running for between 45 & 55 minutes then finishing the session and only once accidentally left it run to the 60 minutes. I had some issues yesterday (Mar 30 after update) where it didn't look like it was tracking, but today was smooth.

    Siebke91I've deleted my savegame local and did one race. Then synced the cloud storage and kept the save from my local xbox. Then started xcloud on my telephone en raced the trueachievements 10k playground multiple times. in the player profile i see the miles growing. After two days i got the achievement.
