The easiest way that I found to do this was to join one of the popular public clubs (for example, Major Nelson's) with hundreds of people. Then find the two speed cameras right outside of the horizon festival and just drive back and forth across them with your fastest car. You may want to start a bit slower and gradually increase your speed with each pass.

Since so many people are in the club, you're bound to beat someone every time. It took me less than 10 minutes this way.

This solution may have diminishing returns as more and more people play the game and get higher speeds. Find some of the more out of the way speed traps if that happens or find smaller clubs, best their times, and move to a different club.
HAMbidextrous1I admit, I was skeptical about this solution. I'm in a club of around 700 and growing by the hour. A few passes at 120-130 and it popped. Niiiccceee!!! Location is perfect.

mbennersDo you have to beat your PB every time? It only tells me that I have overtaken someone when I do.

MAJORPOOPYNo you don't. You just have to beat someone else in the club. If you snap the achievements app you'll see your progress increasing with almost every pass depending on which club you're in.

Contra666I've never seen it increase the achievement count when I don't beat my PB.

MAJORPOOPY"Beat friends of club members"

You don't have to beat yourself. Just someone in your friends list or club list.

Contra666Yes, but it NEVER shows the mini leaderboard unless you beat your previous PB on the camera.


You beat your PB
It shows the mini leaderboard
If you beat the player it's picked, you get 1 progress towards the achievement.
If you didn't beat the player, no progress

richlavelliI can't seem to get this to work either regardless of how fast I go!

Anyone else having similar problems or worked out a way around it?

NeutropiaI don't think this works doing it back-to-back without viewing the leaderboard each time.

After each pass I had to hit X to bring up the leaderboard, then whatever speed I passed at would count as beating someone. If I didn't pull up the leaderboard, I'd get no progress towards the achievement, then have to beat my Personal Best to get the option to view the leaderboard to reappear. I didn't even have to select someone, just simply brought up the board and exited out.

MAJORPOOPYIt's possible things have changed since I posted this achievement. I'm sure there's been a patch or two since. I didn't have to do that, but it might be necessary now. Thanks for the heads up!

InfiniteLogicAs of today when I tried it, June 23rd 2015, I think this has been fixed. I was doing the 1000 skills challenge in a Porsche on the airfield and every time I went drifted through the speed trap I seemed to get the progression automatically.

An Amish WomanI'm currently stuck at 95% on this. I've obtained 5 different records and the percentage won't go up. I'm to the point now where I can't win new records. How frustrating!!

Update 11-22: Finally got this achievement last night. don't know how, because I had ran out of people to beat. It appears you need to check the leader board before you hit the camera, then check it again after

LuentrixYesterday i was able to beat people on tbe speed traps but not at the same speedtraps it doesnt appear anymore! Does it have to be the same car or something? Any speedtrap i go to oly shows the speed that i got and it doesnt show anyone elses!!!!

MAJORPOOPYCould be a FH2 server issue. Like I said, I posted this fairly soon after launch in 2014, so things definitely could've changed since I posted. Also, some of the more popular clubs probably have some pretty high speed records across the board making it harder to beat.

MAJORPOOPYI no longer have the game installed. You're just going to have to try it another time.

metallicafan459This is now available again - however, the guide isn’t that clear on how it needs to be achieved - so it may be it has changed. If you pass through a trap at a high speed you will only get credit for passing 1 person, you may then have no one to beat, so you will need another canmera. You need to pass at progressively faster speeds to slowly leapfrog people, to allow you to maximise that camera

metallicafan459Although I just found a camera out to the west where it glitched and every pass was a PB - even if it was a worse time, so this tracked progress every time I went through it and beat the same person over and over.....

HangmanK7I don’t get this achievement. I have been setting new PBs, joining different clubs, and no progression ... halp

KillersquirelzContrary to what others said, you DO need to beat yourself, as well as whatever friend or club member is above you on the standings. You can still do this at the point the solution indicates between the two speed cameras as long as you keep incrementally raising your speed, but you can't set a personal best of say, 123, then get 110 on the camera and make progress towards the achievement. You need to beat whoever the next guy up on that leaderboard is. So if your best is at 123, and the guy above you is 123.4, you need to beat that 123.4 to make progress.

MAJORPOOPYYou do need to beat yourself and the friends or club members. It seems to be glitchy for some. I wish I could offer more solid advice. Try and join a popular club with lots of people and find an out of the way speed camera. Then gradually increase your speed until you start beating people's speed.

Or join some small clubs, best their scores and move on to a different club and repeat

xX17GHDUDE17XxI'm also stuck at 95%, and the game no longer prompts me to check the leaderboard when I set a new PB. When I check the leaderboard from the pause menu, my times are posted, but the progress bar for the achievement doesn't update. I joined a public club this morning and have definitely passed at least 20 people.

I thought maybe it stopped prompting me because the "x" button was being used to shift gears, but changing to automatic didn't do anything. Annoying.

UPDATE: It did finally unlock for me, somewhat randomly. Some of the race events start inside of a speed zone. It seems that I began noticing the speed traps behaving strangely after completing one such event, and a while after I'd given up on the achievement, it popped when I started the event again. So if nothing else is working for you, it might be worth trying to find where a race like that is (I think the one that gave me trouble was in Sisteron).

JayowskiI finally unlocked it just now and I believe the culprit to be the Forza Horizon 2 servers. It would not increase the percentage for me when I had issues accessing the server. The only way to check the current status is to check the leaderboards of any given speed camera (press X on it while hovering over a camera spot on the map) and if the list is refreshed properly (scroll some pages via RB and LB to be sure) then you can attempt to beat the speed camera speed by some decrement.

It only moved when I checked the leaderboard successfully - when it failed to refresh my speed did not count for the achievement.
