This achievement is more about keeping your cool than driving really really fast. It is possible to do this while simultaneously progressing through career mode, thus killing two birds with one stone.

First off, from the back of the grid it is possible to win on the shortest (20%) race length. If you set the difficulty to easy (I still run with a manual transmission) and enter your next career race, I'd recommend having a practice until you're about 3s quicker per lap than the 2nd place competitor. Once you're on the pace, retire from practice and skip straight to the race.

You'll be in 24th place. Don't go taking yourself out at the first corner then using a rewind, I reckon drive super assertively for the first two laps, and if you have to use a rewind before the end of lap two - start again. You might need those four rewinds later.

Really, you want to make it to first by your pit stop to be secure in this achievement. Normally this pit stop is on about lap 4 of a 10 lap race. If you're any lower than 4th by the pit stop I'd start again.

Furthermore, DON'T damage the car at all by your first pit stop. If you don't damage the car the pit stop will be <5 seconds, if you damage the car it may be 15 seconds. What a pain in the bottom. This happened to me many times and I ended up in 24th after the pit stop. Once you've made your mandatory pit stop (assuming there is a mandatory pit stop) then a little bit of damage here and there may not hurt you.

As long as you're within 6s of the leading car after your pit stop, you've got a good chance. Assuming you pit on lap 4/10, that means you've only got to catch up 1s/lap. Remember that 3s a lap I talked about earlier? Yip, you'll catch them. Just relax don't lose your cool, remember you have those rewinds, you'll get it.
