So you have it set up as a drift event
You are beating 7500 in 1 lap..not the whole event
You are letting the timer run out

Worked fine for me 1st talby71 said, you have to go into free play, setup a drift event, and beat the score in a single lap. You can literally run a many laps as the timer permits, bu I usually set like 5 minute timer, if I go higher I usually beat the 1 lap score and have to just sit around waiting for the timer to expire.

I have no use for dancing dolly suits and loath drift events, so I had ignored this one.

But in the past I've been able to do just fine in the relatively easy drift events required to get cars or awards I did care for. And this post made me curious yesterday. Should be easy enough to get that many points, so when I was puttering around last night with a bit of time but not enough to really do anything worthwhile, I decided to try...

As I said, I've done the drift events in the past, mostly by setting a short timer and picking a track (if allowed) with a lot of lazy/fast curves. Once I got the required points, I just went to get a drink as the timer ran out (usually set for 1-2 minutes depending on car and track). Doing that this time, I didn't get the award.

So I began to think, "I wonder if the new update requires a full lap to have been completed?" So back in I went, and got my points, then went straight on to finish the lap before the timer expired. That got me the award.

Too bad I can't give away the suit...

Took me two goes. 1st time around I could not get the car to drift much. No power in stock form. Upgraded everything not really a drift build but I could break the rear wheels loose. Second go no problem. I did the default track set for drift event. Most of my drifting was on the straights. I am not a drifter so if I could do it so can anybody. I also don't use the ebrake at all.

I did this last week on the full track and got over 10,000 the first lap. My secret was just doing it in the rain.

Classic is the track configuration. If you go to the different versions of that track, one is labeled "classic".

LOL! Not at all what I thought I was seeing. I guess in my haste and general lack of interest, I missed that important "classic" designation too, and failed to get the achievement flagged.

Then I decided to check to see if completing the lap was now required with the new updates. Seemed reasonable, particularly since it has been some time since I cared enough to "waste" time on drifting drifting challenges. So to make the lap easier to complete, guess which ribbon I selected...
