Most of the Golds are fairly easy to get, except for one: Scene 24. You've got to drive towards the camera and finish 75m ahead of Hammond. It is quite frankly horrendous. The map is opposite, the controls are opposite.. its not easy.

Until you figure out the easy way: don't watch what you're doing. No, I'm not joking and I have not lost the plot.

Ignore what's going on on screen and focus entirely on the roadmap in the bottom left corner. You steer left, you go left. Focus on the map and try and keep the top point of the arrow marker in the center of the white line. If you can keep that arrow dead centre, steering left and right as the map bends left and right... it makes it a doddle. I finished 184m ahead of Hammond.

The rest of the Golds should be a breeze! Good luck!
JKSullivanBrilliant suggestion, got 101 on my first try, even with some mistakes.

BigWiIIieStyIeThanks for the advice but didn't work for me at all, actually seemed more complicated. Came down to basically staying perfectly in the middle and memorizing the track that final did it for me and only by 2m.

Crazy Nikos 78I don't understand anything in the two towing challenges, I accelarate in the green zone and my car is so slow... cry

BigWiIIieStyIeCrazy Nikos 78 I struggled with that too, you have to start kinda slow in the white when you get a tug on the car then accelerate into the green.

LlekNaiYou've just gotta keep it in the green, maintain it there and it eventually pulls off and gets the gold in a couple of seconds. If you drop out of the green or go into the red, it'll stop. Just about finding the green and holding the trigger steady. You'll get there man :)

xxxxPRODIGYxxxxThank you SO much. Scene 24 was killing me. I followed the map, crashed and fouled up a few times which allowed Hammond to catch right up. Despite that, I went screaming around the last corner and along the straight and my gap shot up from 30m to 124m. Thanks again.

Steve RedmanGot all golds and beat Hammond by 100m and still no achievement. Wtf is with these glitchy games

H1DD3NSame, it shows I have 24/26 but on the scene select I have all gold. Even on episode select it shows 26 golds.

(Update) I redid the final scene and it popped after getting gold.
