    This doesn't need to much of a guide, as it's pretty self explanatory. Just get a gold medal on all 60 racer events.

    But, it will take time. All criteria for Gold are listed on the race intro menu.

    Prepare for many retrys at certain missions (I found the time trail category to be the hardest).

    *On Duels and Hot pursuits, your time does NOT matter. Just finish 1st for Gold.

    * Don't always take the "shortcut". Some of them are long cuts. And what car are you in? Low slung cars go over gravel slowly. Learn the cuts and if they are faster or slower.

    *If you fall behind in a duel/race, don't worry. Usually "rubber-banding" seems to come into effect, and you'll have caught up in no time.

    * The biggest reason to fail a HP is being wrecked by the cops. Watch them coming up behind you, and prepare to evade/drop spikes.

    * On time trials, it may take a few goes. Learn the shortcuts, and set yourself benchmarks. If you know its not going to happen, restart. The time trials are not as forgiving as the races.

    * Use your power ups at the right time. Don't use them just for the 200 bounty bonus. Save them until you need them.

    AwakeDeadeye Stuck on The Ultimate Road Car... about to give up. I'm not to big a fan of racing, and I hate time trials.... so I'm kind of at a boiling point. Maybe one day when I feel it's worth it.

    CodeMonkeysGuy M Power is pretty easy. Stock up nitro in the first bit with oncoming/near misses, then punch it towards the first car. If you hit the front of the car at around 160MPH+, you'll bounce off the car back onto the road, losing around 60MPH of speed, but still enough to throttle your way up to a speed to take out the second car in one hit no problem. This'll give you full nitro for a car takedown, so use that up and blaze along. As the second cop car pulls up in the tunnel after using the nitro up, spike it and take it down, and then use that nitro. Do be sure to make use of *most* of the shortcuts as well, take turns tightly enough, and not screw up much at all.

    rob25X Seacrest Tour was the worst for me. Everytime I reached the last the section (1-2 miles) the AI would speed past me everytime and win.

    After trying the event about 5 times I decided to try something different. I got in first then didn't use boost at all... I was in the lead for the last half of the race and won by 10 seconds!

    Could be worth trying for anyone having trouble with Seacrest Tour.
