Unlock all other trophies
Just like all other Platinum trophies once you get all other trophies this will unlock.
Just a Scratch
Use pit lane to repair your vehicle 50 times
Just as the description says. Drive through pit lane 50 times to repair your car. Pit lane is always close to the starting line and has a big wrench on a sign to designate were it is.
On the in game menu under trophies you can track your progress on how many times you have driven through pit lane.
Not on my Watch
Wreck a car in pit lane before the repair
For this trophy you have to have a boost saved up and when you get to pit lane use it and try to wreck another car before they get repaired. May take a few tries but you will get it.
The Hard Way
Finish 5 races without using pit lane
The best way to do this is try and finish the first 5 races of rookie in championship mode without using pit lane. Avoid collisions as much as possible and you shouldn't need to use pit lane during the race. Collisions with the walls and other cars is what causes your car damage.
Just that Good
Finish 3 races without wrecking or using pit lane
Just like The Hard Way try and do this in your first few races of Rookie tier in Championship mode.
Again avoid any collisions with walls and other cars. Only difference is you cant wreck. That don't mean you can't have a collision. It means don't damage your car so bad that it rolls over 4 or 5 times before landing and you get a new car.
I Meant to do That
Drive over 15 oil slicks
During the course of yuor career you will encounter oil slicks on the course. It seemed to me after a car was badly damaged it would start to leak oil. Drive over them 15 times and the trophy will unlock.
In the in game menu under trophies you can check your progress.
Watch your Step
Bump another car into an oil slick
When there is oil slicks on the course try and knock another car into one and the trophy will unlock.
Didn't See You There
Bump another car into a hazard
Hazards are spread through out the courses. They range from a stack of tires to barrels. Bump another car into one and the trophy will unlock.
Complete 50 Slingshot boosts
Draft as much as possible. This will refill your boost meeter. When it is full the :triangle: will appear behind your car. Press that and use your boost 50 times.
In the in game menu under trophies you can track the progress of this trophy.
It Still Counts!
Wreck your car across the finish line
This is one of the trickier trophies in the game. one of the few you may actually have to try to get.
What you have to do is try and get your severely damaged car to finish line and wreck it so that it carries you over the finish line. What I did when I noticed I had a bad enough damaged car I slammed it into the wall close to finish line and it carried me through the finish.
Place 1st on the Daytona Oval
The Daytona Oval is the easiest track to win on. At the beginning of the race try and draft as much as possible so you can get your boost meeter maxed out. When you have it maxed get into a clear path and use your boost to help you get to the front. If you don't bang into any walls and run a clean race it is easy to stay out front and you should have no problem winning.
Perform a doughnut and go on to win the race
This can be one on the Daytona Oval track. To do a doughnut you have to hold R2, square and hold the left stick to the right or left. It will come up on the right of the screen when you have completed a doughnut. Do this right at the start line. Then go on and win the race and the trophy will unlock.
Remember Daytona Oval is the easiest to win on.
2 Birds, 1 Stone
Make 2 Rivals at the same time
It's easier to make a rival when you have a boost and you use that to slam into other cars. Do this to slam into 2 cars at the same time to make 2 rivals at once.
Drift around 75 turns
Drifting in a corner is a way to help keep speed without having to break. To drift press the square button. Don't hold it to long or you will spin out.
Drift 75 times and the trophy will be yours.
Score higher than 175,000 in a single race
Easier then it sounds. Do all the challenges in a race and finish as high as possible and you shouldn't have any problems getting this trophy.
Tips on how to get points.
1. Start the race by drafting to get your boost meeter maxed out.
2. Use it to slam into other cars to make rivals.
3. You get bonus points for having 3 and 5 rivals in a race.
4. Complete the challenges that come up during the race.
5. Try and finish as high as possible in the race. Of course if you win you will receive the most points.

If you don't have a friend to play with you then this can be done with a second controller. Leave them at the start/finish line and when you come back around have a slingshot boost saved and use it against them.
