To nab this achievement simply make sure that you're in 1st place when you finish each of the four races which comprise the Riviera Tour competition within the DLC 'Exotics Racing' events.

The tracks you need to win on are:

1) 5 laps of Monument Loop

2) 4 laps of Casino Riviera

3) 5 laps of Port Boulle

4) 4 laps of Monte Grande

Each of these tracks are variations on a theme of the Monaco GP track we all know and love (guess they couldn't afford to licence the name?) with Monte Grande being the most akin to the actual GP track.

Don't forget that you are able to upgrade the car you're using for these races, I used a fully upgraded Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione.

The main issue you may have with these races is that the tracks are fairly narrow and the opposition cars tend to get in your way (especially if you've set the game to 'easy' AI). However, this gives you plenty of ramming opportunity to rack up some tasty points towards your driver rank so don't be afraid to send those AI cars a message (the message of course being 'get out of my way dingleberry' ). Also, be aware of the long straights in these tracks and try to memorise a braking point using a trackside object to help avoid hitting the corners at the end of the straights too fast. Those 'soft' blue impact thingies are too easy to become snagged upon so avoid these when you can.

You should have these done in around 30-45 minutes or so for a fairly easy 30G. If you finish a race in any other position apart from 1st, just press 'Y' at the results screen to make another attempt. Happy racing!
