    As Highlander mentioned, get Season 6 complete then begin the grind. I used the play and charge cable to keep my wireless controller from turning off as I didn't have a wired one, and that worked just as well.

    If you're fortunate enough to work at a desk with a dual-input monitor like me, then you can do this while you work! I bought the $5 VGA cable from monoprice.com and setup my Xbox behind the monitor (no need for sound). During lunch I started one of the endurance races, hired a driver and it was done by the time I got back (hour). The rest of the day I would switch to Xbox, setup a race, hire a driver then back to work.

    Took me 2 weeks straight, so that's 8 hrs x 10 days = ~80 hours in addition to completing season 6. Don't worry about being online, our firewall blocked me. I just made sure I was online during the last race when the achievement popped, which was on the event completion screen (when you're given the cash) after I completed the final race.

    aigochamalohHas anyone recently finished this achievement and gotten their forza rewards site to update? Mine still hasn't. Anyone want to try a multi player match on forza 3 to force an update on the server?

    Anubis131973The Forza rewards site seems not to be tracking anything. Mine says I've played 1 day and are driver level 10, despite now playing numerous days, got to driver level 35 and had numerous achievements pop.

    I got this achievement on 12-27-09. I did no online races and raced until I was level 50 and had all the achievements I needed before I started to hire a driver. It's best to plug in the controller so it doesn't go dead in the middle of a race.

    It took me 118 hours driven, almost 30 hours in menus and there were 1053 races total for 220 events. If you are a completionist, make sure you have something to do while you are going for this because if you check your messages or anything, the race won't run in the background - it will pause - so you will have to just let it sit and tough this one out. Good luck!

    XonatronDoes it matter if you've already Gold'd quite a few races in the event list OUTSIDE of season play mode???

    XonatronDo you even have to do this in season play mode? If so, what season completes it?

    Just a few pointers. As others have mentioned, get to level 50 first and keep those spendy cars you get on the way. The Ferrari FXX is a great example as it cost 3 million credits otherwise and you need it for one of the toughest STOCK only race series.

    You can use the Event List to see a nice grid of all the events. It is great for seeing which golds you have and filling in what you are missing. But don't rule out Season Play. If you can get it to generate a series you need (for example, get in that FXX before selecting a series) you actually make more cash doing Season Play because you get bonus money for winning each series and for every championship race.

    Most of all, I am a big fan of the Hire Driver feature. Their gold medals count for you (but they keep half their winnings). A play'n'charge cable or wired controller definitely helps for this, especially on longer races. You can eat a meal, take a nap, or whatever else you need to do, and still be grinding out gold medals and earning cash for expensive cars. I'm making about 35k while I type this solution. :)

    Have a nice drive!

    Wimp Lo 69Yes indeed PirS92. Although I did say to keep the freebie so you don't waste money later replacing it, my phrasing may be confusing.

    PirS92To hiring a driver wich play for you is a very good idea. You will receive 0exp. And half prize money but the mental stress level will be good . I really hope for no bugs problem. I only have to do less 10 events and today i will complete this beautiful and insanely long game laugh
