Ok so you need the Audi R8 to win 3 types of races. Interceptor, Hot Pursuit and Rapid Response. You first need to unlock the car which should happen around lvl 12. But since you're reading this solution to complete the game 100% the chances you already did are very likely.

The Audi R8 can be driven in the "Rapid Deployment Unit" class, If you want to choose your own race click on any SCPD spot on the map, select the event and then in the right corner it will say whether it's a Rapid Deployment Unit event or otherwise. If you want me to give you 3 here they are:

Select the "Carson Ridge Reservoir" ( left,middle-bottom of the map ) 2nd event called "Locking On"
KungFuStu72 Suggested that you can also choose the "Hang Tough" event in "Grand Ocean Coast" (south west corner of the map)

Hot Pursuit:
Select the "East Gorge Canyon" ( right side of the map ) 3rd event called "Run to the Hills"

Rapid Response:
Select the "Carson Ridge Reservoir" ( left,middle-bottom of the map ) 3rd or 4th called "Guided Missile" and "Coming in Hot" your choice

You need to earn the Distinction award on all 3 event types, Distinction is what the Gold medal is called for cop events.

NOTE! : I've heard from various sources that you do not need a Distinction award on all of them, people are reporting the achievement popped with just a Merit award. I don't know if this will happen to everyone so get a gold anyway just to be sure.
UPDATE: Apparently they fixed it, you need 3 gold now.

Good luck !
