    Introduction

    Welcome to the Project Cars 2 Trophy Guide! Compared to other racing simulators this is relatively easy and short platinum. Except for the 200-lap Indy 500 Race it’s not too tedious and most trophies come naturally through career progress. The first thing you should do is head to the gameplay options and enable all driving assistance and HUD options. This will make the handling a lot easier. Playing with authentic handling is very challenging and you have almost no control over your car on icy tracks. Even with all assistance options enabled the handling takes a while to get used to. There are also some fine-tuning options before every race to adjust the cars according to your playstyle.

    Step 1: Career Playthrough

    For the career you will want to start with a tier 6 motorsport. Then move on to tier 5 > tier 4 > tier 3 > tier 2 > tier 1. This will earn you the gold trophy “Zero to Hero”. Also try to do one motosport of each type along the way for trophy “Diversity”. However, if you miss a motosport type it’s no problem because you can access and replay all events after beating a tier 1 event.

    A lot of the trophies are tied to progress in the career. Invitational Events / Manufacturer Affinity Events also happen over time through career progress.

    In the career you should set the opponents to the lowest difficulty and the amount of rounds per race to the lowest number (usually 2, you can set this before every race). Furthermore, every career motorsport has a “full” and “short” playlist. After choosing the motorsport class, press  :l1: / :r1:  to switch to the short version. This way you can skip a lot of races entirely and save a ton of time towards platinum. Also disable the qualification rounds for every event. All of these things combined will make the career much quicker to complete. If you fall too far behind in a race, restart it immediately. This is especially important during the first races of every season. If you get a difficult event later on (e.g. on icy track) it won’t be a big deal if you place 4th or lower in that event as long as your overall score is the highest for that season.

    Just concentrate on placing first in every season, go through the different tiers and you will earn the bulk of trophies automatically without even worrying about them.

    After beating the career (beat a tier 1 event) you can replay any and all events as often as you want to mop up missing trophies.

    Step 2: Quickplay

    There are a bunch of miscellaneous trophies that can be done through quickplay. This includes completing the Nordschleife in under 8 minutes with Snowy weather, or Fuji in 2 minutes during a Storm. Just take a look at the trophy list after the career and do what you’re missing through quickplay.

    Step 3: Online

    Now that everything else is done, you only have to focus on getting the racing licenses. You have to complete 350 online races for the veteran license (the highest), either solo or you can do it with a friend. As long as you don’t get a DNF you will be fine, any podium position will suffice. You will unlock every license trophy while going for the veteran license.

    Earn all other Project Cars 2 Trophies to unlock Platinum (DLC not required).
    This Is The Start

    From the title screen go to Career → New Driver. Enter the first name, last name, initials and county for your driver and accept.
    I’m Seasoned
    Completed the first season
    This can be done in the career. Select any motorsport. For example, the tier 6 season called “Formula Rookie”. Complete any season and this will unlock.
    Get That Dirt Off Your Shoulder
    Successfully completed a Rallycross season
     The rallycross seasons are located at the very bottom of the career page. There are 4 of them and you just have to win one of them in order to get this trophy. To make this as short as possible, follow the instructions for the trophy “Best Indy World”.
    Best Indy World
    Became an Indycar Champion
    This is earned in career mode, for completing the Tier 1 motorsport called “IndyCar”. It’s at the very top of the Tier 1 event list.Playing the short version is enough. After selecting the IndyCar motosport, you can press  :l1: / :r1:  to switch to the short version with only 4 races. Also set the opponents to the lowest difficulty to make this easier. Before each event, set the amount of laps to the lowest number to save time. The first and last event are the hardest. The second and third are relatively easy to win.
    Invite Only
    Unlocked your first Career Invitational Event
    See trophy “Mr Popular“.
    Mr Popular
    Completed 10 Career Invitational Events
    Invitational Events happen as you win races / seasons in the career. Simply win lots of different motorsport seasons and you’ll unlock more and more invitational events. There are 43 invitational events in total (11 historic, 7 track special, 7 low grip, 9 road, 9 supercar).

    Accoladed
    Earned your first Career Accolade
    Win a motorsport season in career mode to unlock this. For example, complete the “Formula Rookie” tier 6 championship to unlock this.
    Winter Soldier
    Drove a clean lap around the Nordschleife in the snow, in less than 8 minutes
    For this you must finish a clean lap (preferably solo without opponents) on the Nürburgring Nordschleife with weather condition “Snow” in under 8 minutes.
    For the “clean” requirements it’s important that you stay on the road and don’t ram into anything.It’s recommended that you copy all the gameplay settings from the video for this. Enable all authenticity options + HUD options, except for braking assistance. This will make handling a lot easier and even display a line on the road that shows you when to slow down.Go to quickplay and again copy the options from the video.
    The most important options:

    • Car: “Formula X” from manufacturer SMS.
    • Track: Nürburgring Nordschleife
    • Weather: Snow
    • Season: Summer
    • Opponents: 0

    Accept to start the race. In the tuning options you can leave everything at the default values, no need to change anything there.

    Luckily, there’s no snow on the actual road when you pick summer as the season. There’s just some snow in the air. There’s no difference in handling, it’s like driving on a sunny summer day.
    Your key objective here is to make it without driving off the road and without ramming into anything.
    You have plenty of time, I finished it in 7:06 with almost a minute remaining for the trophy.

    Focus on driving safely rather than being fast.

    If the trophy does not unlock for you, try reinstalling the game and playing without a patch (version 1.00). There are reports of players being unable to earn this trophy with patch 1.01 installed (for me it worked fine with the patch).

    Advanced Experience
    Completed an event in a Mercedes car at the Mercedes-Benz Driving Events Ice Track 2
    Quickplay → Custom Race → Track: Mercedes-Benz Ice Track → press :right: , :down: , select Ice Track 2. Now choose any car from the manufacturer Mercedes. Set the event to one round and 0 opponents. Simply drive one lap to finish the event.
    Hunting For Grip
    Drove a clean lap around Fuji in Storm conditions, in a time less than 2 minutes
    For this you must finish a clean lap (preferably solo without opponents) on Fuji GP with weather condition “Storm” in under 2 minutes.
    For the “clean” requirements it’s important that you stay on the road and don’t ram into anything.It’s recommended that you copy all the gameplay settings from the video for this. Enable all authenticity options + HUD options, except for braking assistance. This will make handling a lot easier and even display a line on the road that shows you when to slow down.Go to quickplay and again copy the options from the video.
    The most important options:

    • Car: “Formula X” from manufacturer SMS.
    • Track: Fuji GP
    • Weather: Storm
    • Season: Summer
    • Opponents: 0

    Accept to start the race. In the tuning options you can leave everything at the default values, no need to change anything there.

    It will be raining and there’s a lot of water on the road, making handling a bit trickier.
    Your key objective here is to do it without getting off track and without ramming into anything. If you mess up, you can restart right away.

    No Man’s Fly
    Did a Rallycross jump longer than 20 metres
    Head over to custom events and select the track “Daytona International Speedway Rallycross” and select a suitable Rallycross vehicle. For this go over to vehicle select, press  :r2:  and now select a vehicle from one of these groups: Group 5, Group A, TC1 or RXLites. It’s recommended that you use the RXLites as they are the most suitable ones for Rallycross, but it’s up to you what car you want to try it with.There is only one big dirt ramp on the track and you have to reach a speed of at least 125-130km/h (78-80 mp/h) in order to jump at least 20 metres. You should also disable the AI opponents if they are in your way.

    Note: if this trophy doesn’t unlock you should do it in career mode. There are player reports that it unlocked fine in career mode but not in quickplay!

    All Year Round
    Completed a race around a single circuit in all 4 seasons
    Quickplay → Custom Race → Race Settings → Season: pick one season (spring, summer, autumn, winter). Now choose a fast track, for example Texas Motor Speedway. Set it to one lap only and disable opponents. Complete your one lap to finish the event. Then change the season and repeat the SAME track. You have to drive on the same track in 4 different seasons, it can’t be different tracks.
    Diversity
    Completed a Championship in every Motorsport discipline within Career
    This trophy is done in career mode. You can still replay every type of event after beating tier 1. Normally, when you move on to the next tier, the events from previous tiers get locked. However, after beating the career you can access all motorsport tiers again to play any event you want.Beat a motorsport each motosport event to earn this. Keep in mind you can set the opponents to the lowest difficulty. Furthermore, you can press  :l1: / :r1:  after selecting a motosport to switch between the short version and full version. The short version has fewer races and makes this trophy quicker to obtain.
    The Milk Man
    Won a full distance (200 Laps) Indy 500 race
     For this trophy you have to win a 200 lap Indy 500 race. Go to custom games, set the race for 200 laps, set 1 opponent (adjust all the sliders to 0/100), select the Formula X car (as it is the fastest for this type of race) and select the track “Indianapolis” (this one is confirmed to work, for us “Texas” also worked when the game released but there have since been reports that it didn’t unlock the trophy for some players — it’s best to stick with Indianapolis). Now simply win the race against the brain dead bot to unlock your trophy.Be warned though. Even though nindy oval lap on most tracks only takes between 30-50 seconds, you’ll have to complete 200 of them. That means that you’ll be driving for about 100mins-2,5 hours, so make sure you don’t have anything planned before you attempt this.
    Viva Ferrari
    Drove 4 Ferrari cars, around Imola
    Quickplay → Custom Race → Track: Imola → Car: Ferrari (any) → Race Settings → Laps: 1.Now simple drive one lap around Imola. After finishing the race, pick a different Ferrari car and repeat. Do this with 4 different Ferrari cars, always driving a one-lap race. You can disable the opponents for this.
    Car Zero
    Raced for 4 laps in the Lamborghini Veneno around Red Bull Ring GP
    Quickplay → Custom Race → Track: Red Bull Ring GP → Car: Lamborghini Veneno → Race Settings → Laps: 4.Just complete the 4-lap race with the Lamborghini Veneno. You can disable opponents for this entirely. Just complete the race, doesn’t matter how long you take.
    Straight Six
    Drove a Porsche 911 GT1-98 at 24 Hours of Le Mans Circuit for 24 minutes at 60x time progression.
    Quickplay → Custom Race → Track: Le Mans (24 Hours of Le Mans Circuit) → Car: Porsche 911 GT1-98 → Race Settings → Duration Time: 25 minutes → Time Progression: x60.Now just stand there for 24 minutes and complete the lap afterwards.

    Strategic Mind

To make sure that your custom strategy is the one you are currently using, make sure you select it after saving it.
