Introduction

Shift 2 Unleashed is the follow-up to the 2009 hit, Need for Speed SHIFT by Slightly Mad Studios. The SHIFT series is one of the most realistic and immersive simulation racing games on the market. With 145 cars from 37 manufacturers available, the SHIFT series satisfies racers who desire a simulation racer with arcade-style objectives. This time you will build your racing career working towards the FIA GT1 championship crown. Along the way you'll progress to drifting, time-attack, throwback cars, endurance, GT3 and several other varied events! SHIFT 2 has several new additions, an in-helmet cam view, night-time racing, real vehicle damage that affects vehicle performance, and the Autolog feature introduced with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. New online modes include online duel and catch-up. The higher difficulty in this installment is that unlike the first SHIFT game's trophy set, this time you must complete a specific set of objectives. Such as competing online for King of the Hill, drifting, beating all your rivals, and being able to master every track in the game.


Roadmap


1) Play through your career on HARD difficulty

When you start the game, your first race in your career will be against opponents for two laps after a quick tutorial where you are driving in a Nissan GT-R. It is important that you come in first place in this race for the Proving Grounds trophy as this is missable. If you want to prepare visually for this race, you can watch the video in the trophy guide section.

After the tutorial, I recommend starting up the difficulty on hard to make a single-career run towards 75 career wins in first-place for the Race License trophy which will also unlock Sports License and Competition License along the way. While a podium finish normally counts as a winning finish in the game for progression unless otherwise stated, for these trophies you will need to finish in first-place. Do keep a tally of your wins as there is no in-game count of them in the Autolog.

The career mode in the game is open-ended. As you increase your driver level and gain XP, you will unlock new events. Your focus at this point is leveling up, earning cash towards Bounty Hunter, and getting as many podium finishes as possible in all events. Podium finishes reward the most cash and you will be able to purchase better cars and upgrades for beating your rivals. You'll eventually face off against rivals as you win enough podium finishes to play in that respective series' championship event.

During races you'll want to try to complete race objectives that appear on the race loading screen, such as leading and running a clean lap. These count for the Going The Extra Mile. Also attempt on mastering the track by working towards a 100% score on the best racing line and mastering every corner of that track for Day Walker and Night Rider. As you progress you'll see the tracks in a different daylight setting such as night time and will have to master those as well. As such, there are 126 track master badges total to earn.

Eventually you'll work yourself up to the GT3, Works, and GT1 championship events to finish your career and earn GT3 Champion, Works Champion, and GT1 Champion.


2) Online

Online can be done at anytime, as you will need to accrue over 10 hours of online game time to unlock Notorious. Your total time can be tracked through your autolog profile.

You can get some friends together or find boosting partners in this thread for the I. Am. Iron. Man., In the Zone, and Intercept and Pursue trophies. As they can be unlocked in private unranked matches.

When you complete a race in your career, don't forget to recommend a track to your friend(s) using the button after a race to help them unlock Recommended.

For King of The Hill, you'll need to win eight races in a row in a ladder-style online driver duel. When you win the qualifying round, you'll unlock I'm Going To Hollywood! These cannot be boosted by practical means as its an auto-match.


3) Clean up

At this point, you will have all events unlocked so you can clean-up the remaining trophies. You are likely left with just earning cash and badges. If you need to work on hard difficulty wins, you can change the setting back to hard and start re-playing events you know you can get a podium finish in. If you need online time, you can also work towards winning events online and earning more money as well. Most likely all that will be left is earning $10 million for Bounty Hunter. Going back to win more GT1 events on top of the podium will give the most money per race. However, GT3 events pay a little less cash, but are shorter in time-length to run.


Career Mode Tips

• It is recommended that your backup your Shift 2 save data often via removable media and/or the PlayStation Plus Cloud Service. There have been many confirmed reports of the game freezing during saving points as-of title update 1.02. If the game freezes during game saving, your could lose your career progress. Save yourself possible grief, and backup when possible.

• Based upon your driving skill and outcome in the initial career race, JR will present you with possible handling and difficulty options to start your career with. I do suggest giving what the game has presented a try. If you felt the tutorial was hard to control, you can set it to novice handling with easy mode to start things off. This will turn-on all assists including steering, which should help those who are having issues adjusting to the handling. I would advise to not depend on brake assist as it can make races a little harder than they should be.

• You can spend your cash as you see fit on cars and upgrades. If you change your mind on a car upgrade, you can get a full-refund on that upgrade. This allows you to experiment with how you want your car to work best for you.

• The AI will adjust to your car's performance index as you install more upgrades. If you are having problems getting podium finishes in races, you can simply go stock or minimal upgrades and win races on technical driving skill. With rivals, you likely want to make upgrades since their cars are on a fixed performance index. The rest of the field will adjust however but your chances at beating rivals is better.

• Online Pass and Need for Speed loyalty awards:

If you bought this game new and received the limited edition online pass, not only will you get a 10k bonus and two cars, but as soon as you claim it online you will enable double-XP for 24 hours. Keeping this in mind, you can make considerable progress early-on towards Level 20 and the Veteran trophy.

If you previously played Need for Speed SHIFT, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and/or Need for Speed: Undercover on your EA Nation account, you can also unlock loyalty bonuses for free XP and cash under the options menu.

Roadmap

STEP 1: Playthrough the Legends Career Branch and win the Championship event

Just like the base Shift 2 career, you will be presented with the new Legends branch after the GT1 branch. You will have several new events to compete in to your liking. Playthrough the branch and earn a minimum of 12 podium finishes to enter the championship series to face your new rival, Matt Powers.

Introduction

Shift 2: Unleashed Speedhunters Edition downloadable content adds an all-new dimension to the simulation genre by catering to fans of drag racing and street competition. This new expansion introduces two all-new disciplines to the game: Drag racing & Standing Mile. The drag racing mode rewards the player with the quickest time on a half-mile stretch, while the standing mile competition is all about maximum top-end speed on a one-mile stretch. Contents also include new Speedhunter edition cars and new drag strip locations. You will also get to face a familiar rival in Chris Rado from your Shift 2 career, plus two new ones. Check out my in-game rivalry video for more details on this exciting drag racing venture:

 

Roadmap

STEP 1: Playthrough the drag set of events and defeat your rival, Chris Rado for the 1320 Outlaws Championship.

With the new Speedhunters edition expansion, you will be presented with the drag set of events branch after the GT1 branch. You will need compile at-least four podium finishes to be able to race in the Outlaws championship against Chris Rado. I would recommend using the fastest A-performance car immediately available, the Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) Speedhunter for these events. You will literally fly to the finish in the qualifying events and have no trouble at all once you understand how to drag race. You are also very likely to unlock 8 Second Club naturally as you progress through the drag event set.

Once you are eligible for the championship series, you will need to complete three stages and defeat Chris in the final-standings. In which you should have no trouble if you follow the above advice and to unlock Grim Reaper.

STEP 2: Playthrough the Step Mile events and defeat your rival, Koz for the Standing Mile World Championship

The second set of events in the Drag Branch is the Step Mile events. This time you are measured on your top-speed in the one mile span. Your main focus is to get as much power and up-shift accurately to launch yourself to the fastest speed possible. You can use the WORLD Scion tC reward car you won by defeating Chris Rado, or you can use the same Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) Speedhunters Edition for an easier time with the mile events. While you are playing for podium finishes, and using the car(s) I mentioned you are likely to unlock 250 Club for breaking 250mph in an Step Mile event in natural fashion.

Lastly, you will need at least a set of four podium finishes to qualify for the Mile World Championship. Where you will face Koz in several events, and have to finish on-top of the podium to defeat him to unlock Monster Dog. Nothing changes in terms of difficulty in this series, and if you gotten this far, you'll be able to beat Koz and win the championship with little difficulty.

STEP 3: Playthrough career races using all cars unlocked in the Speedhunter Edition

Now that you have completed the drag branch and have the two reward rivalry cars needed in your garage. You will need to play any set of career events using every Speedhunter Edition car at least once to unlock Speedhunter.

STEP 4: Online Experience

Now that you have completed the drag branch, and all offline trophies, you will take your game online. You will also need access to the online mode via the EA online pass. All you have to do is win on top of the podium, in first-place, in at least one drag event with a Speedhunter car for Ready to Rock. This can be boosted in private, unranked matches. See the boosting thread to find a partner that has this downloadable content for an easier time with this trophy.

Platinum Trophy
Unlocked all trophies in SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED 
Amateur
Reached Driver Level 5 

See Veteran trophy

Day Walker
Mastered every location in day or dusk 

In each track location in the day or dusk setting, you will need to master it by driving around the track and achieving a 100% best racing line score after one full lap. You will also have to master each corner of that track to earn the track master badge for that track. This is accomplished by racing through the racing line in each corner with the proper speed, without going off-track, and hitting another object. You can always see what corners you mastered in-race in your race display and you will gain XP by mastering corners even if you already done so previously. You can progress on mastering tracks in any game mode such as quickplay or online

The same principle above applies to Night Rider, as many locations have night conditions in which you will also have to master the tracks from scratch even if you completed them during daytime. Do note that dusk conditions count for night badges as the trophy text is misleading. Also, not all locations have night conditions. You can track all your progress towards these trophies anytime through your Autolog profile.

Refer to Globetrotter for a complete list of track configurations and which tracks have night conditions.

If you are having trouble with some corners, there are several things you can try. First, try using a slower D-class car like the VW Golf as this car will have the easiest speed and handling setup. You can also use braking assistance to guide you with the appropriate speed to take a corner, you can use the novice handling setting (which turns on braking & steering assist) as the game will attempt to slow down your car and guide you to take the corners at the appropriate speed.

Lastly, some of the best race lines for corners may not entirely be accurate. If you are finding that you are following the line around a corner with proper speed, without hitting an object but it still does not register, you can also turn-off the best line markings in your race options menu. That way you can use your best judgement and/or using the actual tire markings on-track to guide you through the proper "line" around the corner. Some experimentation may be necessary, and you can also check out the track mastering thread for more discussion.

GT1 Champion
Beat Jamie Campbell-Walker and won the FIA GT1 World Championship (1) 

Just like with previous branches, you will need to win enough podiums in the GT1 series to unlock the GT1 World Championship. Jamie Campbell-Walker drives the Nissan GTR and you will have to beat him in this 10-race series and finish on top of the podium in 1st place to win this trophy. Be sure you have enough time to play 10-races straight in one-sitting for this championship series.

Same with GT3, cars in GT1 have similar performance indices and if you've made it this far, you shouldn't have too much trouble being competitive against Jamie and the field.

GT3 Champion
Beat Patrick Soderlund and won the FIA GT3 European Championship 

Once you win enough podium finishes in the GT3 series, you will unlock the GT3 European Championship series. Patrick Soderland is a driver for Team Need for Speed and is also an executive at EA. He is your rival that you need to beat in this series, along with winning it altogether to win this trophy. If you made it to the GT3 championship series, you won't have too much trouble with this as everyone is using a GT3 car and Patrick is no different with his GT3 BMW Z4. Which will have a new home in your garage when you unlock this trophy!

I. Am. Iron. Man.
Placed 1st in 5 consecutive Online events 

You just need to finish in 1st place in any five consecutive online events. This is confirmed to be obtainable in unranked, private matches. For an easier time, it is probably best to do this with a friend considering the nature of the online community. See the boosting thread to find a partner.

Dominator
Beaten all the Rivals (3) 

You can keep track of your Rivals badges progress by going to your Autolog profile at anytime. These are the Rivals badges you will need to earn:

Vaughn Gittin, Jr. - Drift Branch
Darren McNamara - Retro Branch
Chris Rado - Time Attack Branch
Vaughn Gittin, Jr. - Muscle Branch
Jamie Campbell-Walter - Modern A Branch
Tommy Milner - Endurance Branch
Patrick Soderlund - FIA GT3 Branch
Mad Mike Whiddett - Works Branch
Jamie Campbell-Walter - FIA GT1 Branch

Leno would be proud
Have at least one car from each manufacturer in your Garage (3) 

The complete car manufacturer list of cars you need to have in your garage is below. You can also win cars by naturally progressing in your career so you don't necessarily have to buy them all with cash. For the optimal path to this trophy and to save the most money, here is a list of all possible reward cars:

 

Manufacturer list:

Acura
Alfa Romeo
Alpina
Ashton Martin
Ashton Martin Racing
Audi

Mitsubishi
Nissan
Pagani
Porsche
Radical
Renault
Scion
Seat
Shelby
Subaru

Bounty Hunter
Earned $10,000,000 total during your career (4) 

This one is a grind, and by-far the most time-consuming trophy in SHIFT 2, since by the time you complete your career you will not even get close to $10 million. You can continue to gain money however by winning races, finishing events with opponents, and playing online. Your best bet is likely to replay events you know you can get to the top of the podium in. Each career race shows the top of the podium, 1st place winnings and it gets less the further down you finish.

You won't need to hoard money as the game will keep track of all your winnings, so spend it all freely. This can be checked any time in your Autolog profile.

Night Rider
Mastered every location at night 

See Daywalker trophy

Pro
Reached Driver Level 15 

See Veteran trophy

Proving Grounds
Won JR's GTR Challenge (5) 

Missable 

After the tutorial, you will race two laps in a Nissan GT-R against competition. It is important that you win the race in first place to unlock this trophy. If you feel you are not going to win the race, pause the game and restart the race. As explained in the roadmap, this trophy is missable. If you continue on without winning, you cannot retry the event unless you backup your save file, delete it, and start the game again. I've also made a video if you want to prepare for this race visually to unlock the trophy:

Recommended
Completed an event recommended by a Friend (6) 

When you complete a career event, you can recommend that event to a friend by using the button after a race. This will add the recommendation to your friend's Autolog. Have a friend do the same for you and simply complete that event to unlock this. If you have several friends playing SHIFT 2 this is another good avenue to gain more XP faster. If you beat your friend's Autolog recommended records you will gain more XP for that race!

Road to Glory
Beaten your first Rival 

As you progress in career-mode, you'll run into events that end in a championship race series. The first one that is possible is against Vaughn Gittin, Jr in the Drift branch. You have to win the championship series and beat your rival in that series to unlock this.

Semi-Pro
Reached Driver Level 10 

See Veteran trophy

Veteran
Reached Driver Level 20 

To unlock these driver level trophies, you will need to level up to the appropriate driver level. Everything you do in-game will earn XP, i.e. following the best race line, mastering corners, being in the lead, etc. You will also earn more XP by finishing races and playing at harder difficulties. There are XP bonuses by completing race objectives that are shown on the race screen before you enter the race. As mentioned in the road-map, you can also earn double-XP in your first 24 hours after claiming your online pass, therefore making progress to level 20 much faster.

Works Champion
Beaten Mad Mike Whiddett and won the Works Championship 

You will need to win enough podium finishes in the Works series to unlock the Works championship series. You will have to beat Team Need for Speed driver, Mad Mike Whiddett, and finish on top of the podium in 1st place in the series to win this trophy. Keep in mind like with previous races, Works has varied car performance indices unlike the GT3/GT1 series.

Going the extra mile
Completed 250 Event Objectives 

When you start each event, on the loading screen you will see possible race objectives to accomplish during that race. These include a clean lap, which consist of going around the track without going off-course or making contact with another object. Leading a whole lap is another common objective, which will count upon one full resolution around the track from the point you took the lead. Beating a target track time is also another objective. Once you take the lead on the track, it becomes easier to accomplish the target track time objective since there will likely be less obstacles in your path to prevent you from slowing down.

There are well over 500 objectives to accomplish with all the events available in career mode. So if you miss one, just move on to the next race as you'll compile more objectives. If by the end of your offline career you still need more, you can check the remaining ones on the screen before you enter a race series.

Cub Scout
Won your first Event Set Badge 

This is likely one of your first trophies, all you need to do is get all podium finishes in an event set. The easiest path to obtaining this is to complete the initial D-class set that you start your career in.

The Driver's Battle
Complete an event purely from helmet cam 

A new view in SHIFT 2 is the helmet cam that gives you the driving view directly from the helmet. Use the button before the start of your race to set this view. You can tell if you see your helmet at the bottom of the view. Complete the race event with only this view to unlock this.

It is also confirmed that this may not always unlock on your first helmet-cam run if you did not have the view properly set before the race. If you did not get the trophy after the event when you switched to the helmet-cam, play another event (it will load with helmet-cam view completely from the start). Do not change the view at all during the race and the trophy will unlock following that event. See my video below to see what the helmet cam view looks like as I race around the first Monza GP race event and unlock the trophy:

Elitist
Place 1st in an event using Elite handling model 

Another new addition to SHIFT 2 is an immersive Elite handling mode giving the driver full control of their car without any assists. This trophy is designed to have you trial this experience. Under the options menu, set your handling to Elite. Complete and win a race in first-place. You can do this as soon as your first race in your career. Try doing this with the D-class car you start out with in one of the first races if you are having difficulty with this handling mode.

Sports License
Won 25 Career events on Easy difficulty or higher 

See Race License trophy

Competition License
Won 50 Career events on Medium difficulty or higher 

See Race License trophy

Race License
Won 75 Career events on Hard difficulty (3) 
When you first start the game and finish the introduction race, JR will present you with a difficulty setting that the game believes you are comfortable with. The difficulty setting affects AI behavior, time and drift targets, XP, and money you acquire in events. At this point you can keep the settings presented or change it to your liking. Ideally if you start out on Hard difficulty and win 75 career events in first-place, you can get all three difficulty trophies in one-go.

If you are having trouble with some events you can lower the difficulty without penalty and change it back to a harder difficulty afterward. It is also possible to start your career on easy or on medium, then later repeat and win events on hard difficulty. This will unlock the remaining difficulty trophies as the game keeps track of the highest difficulties you've won in first-place.
Sizzlin'
Beaten the 1st Target Time in a Hot Lap event 

When you reach level 3, there will be hot lap events available to go for this. These events have three time attack target times (easy, medium, hard) to strive for to get a podium finish. You just need to beat the hard, or top target time, in an event.

The World is my Oyster
Unlocked the FIA GT1 Branch (1) 

FIA GT1 Branch is the final, top series in SHIFT 2. This will be unlocked automatically after GT3 Champion once you beat rival Patrick Soderlund and win the GIA GT3 series branch. Completing the Works branch is not required.

Nailed It
Track Mastered your first location 

The term track master is used in SHIFT 2 to describe mastering all corners and achieving a 100% best race line score a track. This involves taking all sections and corners at the right speed, on the best race line, and without hitting any obstacles or cars. Stay on the best race line for one lap to achieve a 100% score, master all corners that are listed on the bottom left of your screen on one track, and this will pop at the conclusion of the race. If you are having trouble mastering certain corners, you can try using a slower D-class car. In this video I made below, I unlocked the trophy using the Scion tC as the first car I bought when I started my career at Monza GP:

Globetrotter
Competed at your every location in the game 

If you progress through the career mode in level order, you will attain this trophy naturally. Otherwise by the end of your career if you still do not have this unlocked, you can play any event in any mode (even quick mode) and it will count towards this trophy. See spreadsheet image for the complete list of locations and for all your track badge needs. This trophy will unlock upon completion of the last track on your list.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5224/5683151452_1ec818c3c7_b.jpg

Tic Tac Toe
Own a Modern, Retro, and Muscle car (1) 
This involves owning three types of cars as listed. When you go to the car lot or garage, the type of car is listed. Simply just own one from each type to unlock. You are likely to earn this naturally as you'll need to purchase a retro and muscle car to compete in their respective series. If you want this trophy quicker and have $55039 to spend you can unlock this by buying the cheapest cars of each type:

$4,500 - Volkswagen Golf Mk1 GT1
$11,500 - Scion tC
$39,000 - Dodge Charger R/T
Dialled In
Used On-Track Tuning to save a Tuning Setup for a car (1) 

By going to your garage you can take a car onto the track to test and perform on-track tuning. This is an excellent option to test that new upgrade you just purchased. Just select a car you own in garage mode and go into tuning, then create. You can tune to your liking or choose a quick option. Next, you will be able to choose a track to test your car. After some distance on the track in your pause menu you will need to use the tuning option to make changes to "dial in" your car. Just save those changes. Check out my video to walkthrough this process:

Workaholic
Upgraded 3 vehicles to Works spec 
Once you've put enough upgrades into an upgradable car, the upgrade progress bar will mention that a Works upgrade is available. This final Works upgrade can be purchased with the last upgrade option. You will need to upgrade three cars to this configuration. Even though you might acquire other cars in Works configuration, you will still need to build three yourself.

Keep in-mind you can still make more car upgrades even after the Works option becomes available if you still want to purchase them to continue to raise your car performance index. While each individual car upgrade is fully-refundable, once you upgrade to Works configuration it cannot be reversed.
Grass Roots
Completed JR's Grass Roots event 
Once you get to Level 5, you will unlock JR's drift event. He will give an introduction and tutorial on how to drift at a warehouse yard practice course. You will be given a series of drift targets you will need to complete to pass the tutorial. There is no time limit and you cannot be penalized if you make mistakes so you will have all the time you need to learn to drift successfully. Once you complete this, the trophy will unlock and you will have a new drifting car in your garage to enter the drifting series.
Badge Earner
Earned 10 Badges 
See Badge Collector trophy
Badge Hunter
Earned 50 Badges 

See Badge Collector trophy

Badge Collector
Earned 100 Badges 
As you progress in your career and complete a "series" of events in a level you will earn a badge for that series. You will also earn badges by beating rivals, and mastering tracks in daylight and night time. You can always check your current badge statuses and ones you can work to unlock anytime by going to your profile in the Autolog menu. This will also come naturally if you are working on the mastering track trophies, Night Rider and Day Walker,as there 126 badges total to be obtained for those trophies.
I'm Going To Hollywood!
Got through the Qualifying round in the Driver Duel Championship 
In the online menu, you will have the option to enter the Driver Duel championship. This is a blind auto-match series where you will be paired with an opponent in which you both will get a random car and track to race in a best of three series. Simply just win the qualifying round to unlock. As mentioned in the roadmap, don't always expect random opponents to play fair here. Keep in mind if any car gains a lead of several seconds on their opponent they will automatically be considered the winner for that round.
Paparazzi
Shared a photo or replay with others 
In-game all you have to do is pause and use the camera feature to take a photo to save to your PS3. After the race, go to your Autolog profile and you will have the opportunity to share photos you have saved. Simply share your photo with the world to unlock!
Intercept & Pursue
Completed an Online Catchup Pack and Online Catchup Duel event 
These are two events new to the game. An Online Catchup Pack is an event where slower cars get a head start on the faster car. In the duel format, it is just between two players. This is confirmed to be obtainable in unranked, private matches. You just simply need to complete these events, regardless of how you finish. An online catchup pack event requires at least three players while a duel is simply just you and another player. If you are having problems with people joining in unranked matches, try setting up a ranked match as this will open up auto-joins.
King Of The Hill
Won your first Driver Duel Championship crown (5) 
You'll have to win seven races in a row after the qualifying match in a ladder-style online driver duel for a total of eight wins. The duel consists of two players being matched in a random car and track in a best-of-three driver duel battle. Each player will have the opportunity to start in the lead, and if a round 3 is necessary, the race will begin with both drivers getting the race green light while already driving. If you fail in any round, you will fall down to the qualifying round and have to start over the process again.

This mode cannot be boosted by practical means because it is a blind auto-match. Considering the small amount of players online this can also be frustrating for players because you will have to wait for someone available to play at your ladder level. Randoms playing this mode could resort to questionable tactics such as bumping you from behind and/or attempting to spin you out if they are close as they will not be disqualified for doing so. If the race leader gets too much of lead they will automatically win that round of the match. The best of three format benefits experienced drivers as it might help if you are playing catch-up and waiting for the player to make a single mistake.

Once you get to the championship round, you just need to beat your final matched opponent to take the crown. You also do not fall off the championship round after you win, only if you lose after winning the crown. This can be helpful to help others needing assistance with winning the crown in this round.
In The Zone
Won an Online event from helmet cam 
You will need to finish on top of the podium in 1st place and complete the race entirely from the helmet cam view. Just use button prior to race start to set your helmet cam view. It can look similar to the dashboard view and you can tell if its helmet cam if you see the bottom of your helmet on your screen. If you are a creating a race, you can also lock down the entire field to using only helmet cam view to ensure you will be eligible for the trophy. This is confirmed to be obtainable in unranked, private matches.
Notorious
Played Online for over 10 hours total 

You can track your online time progress in your Autolog profile. Any events you play online will clock time for this trophy, ranked or unranked. Considering that you can obtain money and XP online, this is a good avenue to work on many trophies at once. It has also been reported that if you idle too long online, that you could get timed out by the EA servers. If that happens, the game will not save your time progress. You do need to complete the event for the game to save your time progress.

Thanks to redd214 for sharing a confirmed method on how to boost the time progress overnight:

Setup a private match between you and your boosting partner(s). Start a time-attack race on any track you want, change the length to "long". I personally used the Enna P. track as the time-attack allotment is 20 minutes. At the end of the 20 minutes the match will end and you will go back to the lobby, whether you actually raced or not. When I did it we taped down the gas button (R2) just to be safe. If no one exits out of the lobby the timer will run down automatically and the game will start a new race without you having to do anything. You can leave your PS3 on all night this way and wake up to a new trophy.

Also I can confirm that the servers will kick you after about an hour if you have not moved at all.

Keep in mind you will also want to make sure both you and your partner(s) PS3 controllers are plugged-in if you are leaving your PS3 unattended for an extended period of time.

250 Club
Reached over 250mph in a Standing Mile event 

An easy method for this is to use the Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) Speedhunters Edition or Chris Rado's Scion tC as soon as you start the Standing Mile series. For drag racing, if you are using the standard control setup you will need to get a prompt start at the green light by revving up in neutral using the button. Then when the green light hits you will need to use to up-shift appropriately, keep up-shifting when in the green zone, and you should top 250mph. I have made of video of myself unlocking the trophy at the Agueda Aerodrome event:

I have made a video of myself unlocking this trophy in the Agueda Drag Strip quarter-mile event:
