Introduction
Ferrari Challenge is a decent racing game for the PS3 and a must buy for every Ferrari fan out there. The trophies are spread out in the different modes in the game. This includes the tutorial, the Challenge series, Time Trial mode and Arcade mode. While I wouldn’t say this game is easy, it’s not that hard either and can be completed in around 25 hours. To get the platinum you oviously need all the trophies, and that includes getting all in-game accomplishments. They will usually come naturally, and all others will be mentioned in this guide.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO GO ABOUT GETTING YOUR PLATINUM. THIS IS WHAT I THINK IS A GOOD AND ORGANISED WAY OF GETTING THE TROPHIES EFFICIENTLY.

Step 1 – Options and Tutorial – 2 trophies
NOTE: This game got trophies via a patch. If you have a save from before that patch. You have to delete it first and then create a new save.
Before you start going after trophies, go to options and change difficulty to beginner and duration to 5 minutes. I’ll also list the assist settings I used, but feel free to experiment with those.

Assists:
Racing line: On
SC strength: 3
TC strength: 2
ABS strength: Max

Then it’s time to do the tutorial. Here you have to drive two laps on the Fiorano circuit and Tiff Needell will give you pointers on what you’re doing right and what you have to improve. You have to get 75% accuracy in all categories to get the Hot Shot trophy. Try to listen to what Tiff Needell says and check the trophyguide for more details on how to do this. Finishing of tutorial mode shouldn’t take much time and will net you 2 trophies.

Step 2 – Challenge series – 12 trophies
Now it’s time to start with the main mode in Ferrari Challenge, the Challenge mode. This is the mode where you’ll be unlocking cars. There is a challenge series for Italy, Europe and North America. Each series has seven race weekends that each includes a qualifying session (optional) and two races.
As each of the three challenge series has a maximum points trophy, you have to win each race. This will also ensure that you unlock every car by the time you’re finished with the Challenge series. As I said, the qualifying is optional, but if you have changed the duration to 5 minutes, it could be wise to qualify for a higher grid position. Underneath, I've listed the special things you need to do in each challenge series.

Italian Challenge Series:
- Earn 1 pole position in Qualification Sessions
- Win all 14 races
European Challenge Series:
- Earn 2 pole positions in Qualification Sessions (in-game accomplishment)
- Win all 14 races
North American Challenge Series:
- Earn 3 pole position finishes in Qualification Sessions (in-game accomplishment)
- Win all 14 races

This will give you all challenge series specific trophies as well as all in-game accomplishments in the Italian, European and N. America category. It will also give you these trophies:
- Euro Races
- Unlock and Roll
- The Collector
- First Across The Line

If you have followed the steps so far, you should have 14 trophies.

Step 3 - Trofeo Challenges -21 trophies
With the Challenge series done, it’s time to move onto the Trophy mode in this game. There is one tournament for each car you unlock and each tournament has three races. You don’t have to win every race, but you have to finish first in each tournament (getting most points over three races) to unlock they’re respective trophies. However, try to win every race as it will count towards 100 race wins. These are the trophies called Trofeo [Insert name here]. To participate in a Trophy tournament, you need to unlock the car (you did that in step 2) and then buy it. Money shouldn’t be a problem.
Winning every trophy tournament should earn you 21 trophies bringing your total up to 35 trophies. This will also unlock every in-game accomplishment in the Trophy category.

Step 4 - Time Trial mode – 4 trophies
Then it’s time to move on to the Time Trial mode. This is an incredibly easy mode, as long as you DON’T use one of the F430 Challenge cars. I suggest using the FXX in time trial mode as this is the car you’ll be driving in Arcade mode if you follow my tips. The most important thing though is that you have to use the same car on all time trials. The requirements are so easy that you should be able to beat the time on each circuit by driving only one lap.
If you have followed this guide with clinical precision you should now have gotten 4 new trophies giving you a total of at least 39 trophies.

Step 5 – Arcade mode – 3 trophies
Then it’s time for Arcade mode, the last mode you’ll play to collect trophies in. The FXX is probably the best car to use here, and if you used it in the time trials, you should also be familiar with it. You have to complete all four difficulties, starting with Beginner and ending with Legend. Each difficulty has 4 races. In arcade mode, you start in last place and have to work your way up. In Beginner, you have to finish 3rd, in Intermediate you have to finish 2nd and in both Expert and Legend, a 1st place is required to advance. To get the Arcade Gold trophy however, you have to finish first in at least one race in each difficulty.
You also have to finish 3 races in 1st position in rain conditions in any difficulty. In expert difficulty you have to finish at least one race in 1st place without going off the track, and finish a race with a race-line accuracy of 60% or above. Doesn’t need to be in the same race. In legend difficulty you have to complete one lap in 1st place without dropping position once.
When you’ve done this, you should have 3 new trophies, bringing your total to at least 42. You should also have all in-game accomplishments in the Arcade category.

Step 6 – Cleaning up – 0-4 trophies
If you have followed this guide, you should already have driven 2000 miles giving you the 2000 On The Clock trophy. More than likely, you also have 100 wins, giving you the 100 Wins trophy. This only leaves two trophies out. The Perfectionist (Gold) and Congratulations (Platinum). If you haven’t done so yet, go to Team in the main menu and change the Team name. Then go to Showroom and add a vinyl to one of your cars. These small steps will net you another two in-game accomplishments, and most likely the Platinum trophy if you followed this road map. If not, go to Accomplishments in the main menu and see if you are missing one or more of them as you need all of them to get The Perfectionist trophy.

You should now have your Platinum trophy!

  • Complete Tutorial mode for the first time

    Tutorial is a two lap guided tour where you drive and Tiff Needell guides you through Fiorano. To get this trophy, just complete the two laps.

  • Achieve 75% accuracy or above in all categories in Tutorial mode

    Same as The Graduate, but now you need to get at least 75% accuracy in all four categories: use of brakes, throttle control, race line accuracy and apex accuracy. You are allowed to use assists in the tutorial, so use them if you have any trouble getting this one and listen to Tiff Needell.
    Use of brakes: With the racing line assist on, this is pretty easy. Just brake when the racing line indicator is red.
    Throttle Control: In thight corners, you need to be careful when applying more and more throttle (R2), but don’t do it to slow either.
    Race line accuracy: With the racing line indicator on, this is pretty easy. Just make sure you follow the racing line.
    Apex accuracy: This is how well you take corners. Stay on the outside when you come into a corner, in the middle of the corner you should hit the inside (this is where the apex is) and when you leave the corner take the outside.

  • Beat the Lap Record on all Italian circuits in Time Trial mode

    This includes Monza, Misano, Vallelunga and Mugello. See Time Trial Lap King for tips.

  • Complete Expert difficulty in Arcade mode

    Beat Expert difficulty in Arcade mode.

  • Place first at every circuit in the game

    One would think you actually had to win a race at every circuit in the game. I got this after winning at least one race at every circuit except for the California track in the 6th race weekend of the North American Challenge series. This trophy unlocked right after I secured 2nd place in Qualifying at the California track.

  • Unlock your first Tournament Car

    You get this by finishing your first race in any of the Challenge series.

    Win 100 offline races.

  • Beat the Lap Record on every circuit in Time Trial mode

    Beat every circuit in Time Trial mode. You can choose whatever car you wish. Don't pick the F430 Challenge as the time required with that can be very difficult. I did this with the 575 GTC and did all of them in one lap because the requirements were incredibly easy.
    -Thanks to three15 for the tip on time trials-

    You have to beat all the circuits with the same car.
    -Thanks to tdr_dangly for the tip-

  • Complete the Italian Challenge with Maximum points

    420 out of 420 points needed to get this trophy, meaning you have to win both races in each of the seven race weekends of the Italian Challenge series. Trophy will unlock shortly after crossing the finish line in the last race.

  • Win a race at every European circuit

    Win at least one race in all of the European Challenge series weekends. This one actually unlocked for me after securing pole in the last race weekend. I suggest going for "Circuits Maximus" at the same time as this trophy.

  • Win a race at every North American Challenge circuit

    Win at least one race in all of the North American Challenge series weekends. This one actually unlocked for me after securing pole in the last race weekend. I suggest going for "American All-Star" at the same time as this trophy.

  • Complete Legend difficulty in Arcade mode

    In order to complete Legend difficulty in Arcade mode, you first have to beat Beginner, Intermediate and Expert difficulty with the same car. You don't loose your progress with a car if you change cars, so if you want to try different cars you may do so.

    dr_dangly has this to say about Arcade mode:
    "I find the FXX a good car; it’s got very good handling and brakes.
    I turn the driving line on full because even though the AI doesn't drive on the line itself, I find it does drive by the colour of the driving line, so on some tracks were the line turns orange you can go flat out and when it goes red sometimes you can brake later with the FXX."

  • Complete the European Challenge with Maximum points

    420 out of 420 points needed to get this trophy, meaning you have to win both races in each of the seven race weekends of the European Challenge series. Trophy will unlock shortly after crossing the finish line in the last race.

  • Complete the North American Challenge with Maximum points

    420 out of 420 points needed to get this trophy, meaning you have to win both races in each of the seven race weekends of the North American Challenge series. Trophy will unlock shortly after crossing the finish line in the last race.
