So this achievement while it is a typical grinding achievement for Forza has been made a lot easier in Forza Horizon 3.

First of all, take note of the achievement description it says Complete and not Win, so you don't have to win all the championships just finish them, I tested this since to the best I could remember about my first few championships I never didn't win any so purposely didn't win the final one and still got the achievement just to make sure.

Each race route in the game has its own Championship and there are 63 in total, the map will indicate if you have or have not complete a championship from the certain route. Sometimes some of the routes will have their championships unavailable as either all the default championship routes haven't appeared yet (you get new routes/events whenever you level up a Festival Site) or you just haven't discovered them yet (undiscovered routes appear on the map as the coloured circles with a Question Mark (?) inside them), I'm not sure which of those or if both of those scenarios is the case, I didn't get to test this out before I thought of it.

Now onto the tips to make this a hell of a lot easier.

The default championships will have 3 to 5 or 6 events in them. However in Forza Horizon 3 they have introduced Blueprints which allows you to make your own events such as Bucket Lists, Exhibition Races and Championships, so taking advantage of this you create your own Championship Blueprints that can be a lot shorter then the default Championships, these do count towards the achievement and finishing a Championship at the route you create it at.

Championships do have a few restrictions, they need to include the route you started the Championship at and need a minimum of 3 races.

Other then those you can change whatever you want, type of cars, weather conditions and for circuit races the number of laps. I mostly used the Hyper Cars for road races and Extreme OffRoad for races that took place off the designated roads. (just get use to Keira saying the same thing over and over should you do this).

So now I have two recommended options:

If you do have the Fast Travel Anywhere Service perk unlocked from the Festival Boss Skill Shop
- Go to the starting route.
- Create your own Blueprint, select whatever series you like.
- Remove all other routes and add your two favourite circuit routes, set their lap counter to 1 and setup the weather/day conditions too your liking if you wish (make sure to do so on the default event as well), then start the Championship and fast travel wherever you need to go to next.
- The reason for doing 2 circuit races is that you can do most circuits in about 1 minute in a Hyper Cars event compared to most Point-to-Points that take around 3+ minutes so its just faster, I found 2 Circuit races at the Top of the Outback area of the map close together that I enjoyed so did a lot of 1 lap races around them and could travel between them quickly as well without Fast Travel.
- One draw back to consider is you get less XP/Credits/Fans for a 1 lap race then 3+ lap races.

If you do not have the Fast Travel Anywhere Service perk unlocked from the Festival Boss Skill Shop and want to start on this before you do as that park takes a lot of skill points to unlock, or just want to make the Championships events quicker to complete early on:
- Go to the starting route.
- Create your own Blueprint, select whatever series you like.
- Remove all other routes and then setup routes that start near the end points of your race so you spend less time traveling between events. Point-to-Point events will draw the route on the map if your unsure which point is the end of the race however they do normally start near the route starting circle you activate the event from (I don't remember any that don't) and circuit races start and finish near the route starting circle you activate the event from.
- Setup the weather/day conditions too your liking if you wish (make sure to do so on the default event as well), then start the Championship

One last thing to note, when you start a championship it will load up the first/default event straight away, but you can back out of this and go and start the championship at another event that makes up the championship, so if you don't have the Fast Travel Perk and have a circuit races nearby your Point-to-Point default races you can back out and do the circuit race first instead of racing half way across the map and having to come back and doing the circuit race.

Well that is a lot more than I was expecting to write, I hope I haven't missed anything or made anything unclear, let me know if you find anything unclear or have any suggestions on how this might be improved.
ATCS I love the way you laid this out. Extremely easy to follow and will save a lot of time! Thanks.

AlezidioX Great guide!

I hope this is not

Mr Fiddler So you can't just include a route in a championship, it has to be the first one to count? That's really lame. I thought that the championship icon went gold just from being included but I've not done that many so could be wrong. Is there an easy way to track which ones are not yet done?

xmadxbluedevil When you break 25 million fans all championships are unlocked just too let you all know

Calex dEUS One thing I'd add to this that might be useful for others is when creating the championship it's a good idea to set a car manufacturer and change it each time . It will help knock out the 300 photos achievement while play through through these. You can simply take a photo at the start of the race and carry on.

TheGreatKoala Why would it be patched? It says complete not win in the achievement description

Ads427 great guide. to be clear its only the event that starts the championship that counts towards the achievement as far as I can see? So there are 63 locations meaning you will need to start 63 championships at the different locations and then do a min 3 races at each one.

SchlomoTheJew So if the route is greyed out on the map then you're good to move on to the next one?

zamacgod303 Hi, so I must finish all 63 championships, and all the individual races in said championship, or can the same races be done over??
Posted by zamacgod303 on 03 Oct 16 at 12:38
iTz Canada Ehh Dude this saves so much time. Each championship took me about 5-10 minutes including set up and loading times. I mean the only reason people wouldn't use this is if they wanna get the achievement "legit" by doing Horizon's pre set championships, which is double or triple the time to complete. Doing it this way is the difference between a 30-35 hour completion and a 60-80 hour completion considering I'm at 25 hours played with this out of the way now.

AH GamerScore To those that may be confused about it. When choosing a route it'll have exhibition and championship on it, does have rivals too but that dont count towards nothing. For this achievement you need to choose championship, each championship will have minimum of 3 events and if choosing a circuit you can set up your own blueprint with all 3 circuits with 1 lap each. If using a hyper car each race should take around 1 minute to do give or take and you dont have to win. For sprint races you can do the same thing but you'll be having 2 circuits and 1 sprint and those will last around 5 minutes. There's 63 events you need to do so when doing them all in one sitting it should take around 5-8 hours depends on how the set up is that you do and what cars you use.

zamacgod303 Ok cool so this is basically just finish all 63 championships.
That's easy enough

TONI III04 I am worried about something now after doing 33 of the 63 championships. I did nearly exactly what is described but the achievement counter says only 25% and not about 50. Anyone else having this issue? Its the last achievement missing for me and I dont want to make any mistakes and dont get it in the end...

DarkLordRaptor Just came back to say that it finally popped for my last night while I was on youtube. Guessing it was just xbox live delay.

Iron Man TStark hey - thanks for that man - I have been bashing the ordinary ones!!

So I'm clear, the blueprint championships i can create count towards this??

Awesome job!

LordI0ILink lol I'm stuck @ 62/63 championships and I can see nothing on the map.
all I can tell what maybe caused the bug to happen is that my game froze @ the end of a championship race when it gave me a wheelspin.
Posted by LordI0ILink on 20 Oct 16 at 11:42
Oc3anMaster this just got a whole lot more grindier than i was expecting, it only counts as the starting race and not each and every single route taken in a championship....jesus christ
Posted by Oc3anMaster on 23 Oct 16 at 15:56
Iron Man TStark The solution is perfect - just blueprint everything to 1 lap and you're good to go (unless the first race is a sprint)
Posted by Iron Man TStark on 23 Oct 16 at 18:10
Miojo666 OMG I'm stuck at 62/63 like LordI0ILink.
I'm so mad right now. I'm stuck at 98% of the last achievement in the game and I have NO CLUE what can I do.

Xonatron So a championship that takes place at multiple events only counts for the location the first event exists? And other championships starting at the locations the other events must also be done?

DropDeadHorizon If everyone friends Stallion83 on live you can use his blueprints to get this done faster rather than have to make your own.

crevette creole I have 63/63 and no new championship on the map, but no success. I think I've made 2-3 races when i was offline. Any idea ?
Posted by crevette creole on 17 Jan 17 at 15:57
JBorley19 Mine is stuck at 90% with all 63/63 complete. Maybe this isn't a glitch and it's tied to completing some in online co-op campaign? I had the same issue with the Exhibitions, but I did the save file trick. Not doing it with this one though.

Bonxy Im stuck at 98% with 63/63 completed! :(

Bonxy After posting the above comment two days ago, i turned my xbox on and left it on dashboard why i went for tea and while i was downstairs my phone vibrated and the notification unlocked.

So two days after achieving the requirements in game, it unlocked on the xbox.

IamWilliamB a recent patch/hot fix was added to the game for championship and exhibition stuck missing one race after they have been completed
Posted by IamWilliamB on 28 Jul 17 at 00:37
Dokter V The recent patch/hot fix gave my this achievement early, 58/63. Just like the Exhibition achievement and Blizzard Championship achievement, buggy, but nice!
Posted by Dokter V on 02 Aug 17 at 10:21
RAVENxSPEEDSTER Is that why I just earned this even though I've completed 58/63 championships? Not bad I guess. I was kinda willing to go all in but I guess now it's time to go back to hot wheels and finish up those championships.
Posted by RAVENxSPEEDSTER on 03 Nov 17 at 01:05
perceptron3000 Same here. I also got it after completing only 58/63 championships, but won't complain. laugh
