Thought I would start a topic so that anyone can offer tips on getting trophies, credits etc.

The fastest repeat money I have found so far is Professional: British Lightweights, London track. 24.100 credits for 3 minutes of racing.

When doing the Snow / Ice or Night races, you can lower or raise the "brightness".
After you have pressed the green race "START" flag, press the controller or wheel start button, go to "quick options, you can make the brightness adjustment, along with the map size and location.

Special events, Top Gear Test Track advanced. accelerate to 49/50 mph and feather the throttle, dont let it hit the rev limiter at 51, your speed drops to 45. Got Gold first time doing this.

I hope these help, if anyone has others, please list.

found more easy money.

Turbo cars race at HSR. Use your race modified Integra (maxed out) for an easy $36,000 + experience points. You can run it as many times as you want. It bought me my maxed out race modified ZR1 (thanks HSR)

You can also run the last kart special event at autumn ring mini for a cool $119,000. Not bad for 5 laps.

BlackJack, You only get the credits in Special Events the first time.

Another good one is Extreme Series, Schwarzwald League B, at the Ring.
8 minutes, 59,000 credits, 4,720 exp points, and good practice thown in.

Make that 7 min, 20 secs, lol

You only get the credits the 1st time at Special Events, what about trophies? Does it help any at all running there 2nd or 3rd time?

If you get a silver, you can go back for a gold and get the points and credits for it. You almost need to in later stages. I have golds through my IC tests and gold and silver in the IB and IA tests. Mostly silver in the S test with 2 bronze and a gold. Now at level 22 I need to start turning silver into gold, presro magico! Gold cup

So, eventually you will need to have all golds to obtain S class? Does this apply to all races in A-Spec, Special Event? How do I do that lol. I have given up on golds cuz a few all I need was just .002 seconds to bring home the golds and failed lol. I do need a week off and glue to the racing seat, 2-3 hours a day isn't good enough lol.

You dont need all golds in lower licences in order to qualify for the "S" licence.
Bronze and Silver, with a certain amount of EXP points, and you can obtain the "S" licence.

You're right Clubs, this game has to be played with caution, not only on the track, but also the amount of time, so that the wife does'nt get upset. Very mad

A tip for the final NASCAR special events.

The ASM is lock to "on" in the options menu. If you can, turn it off from your wheel. My wheel lets me do that. I don't know about the G25 or 27. Controller user might have a tough time...Good Luck!

This event was killing me until I turned the "aid" off.

This also may apply in the extreme NASCAR races.

On my last few races I've found to leave the ABS alone (default setting) and turn off active steering helped me quite a bit.

A great prize for a great effort! Good work DMH, glad we have guys up front to scout the way in such a vast game. I wonder what other surprises are in store for us. Are there any differences between the acadamy version and standard?
