Formula gran turismo seasonal event. Take the pp down to 800 and dust everyone in 5 laps. 2.8 million dollars every 9 minutes roughly.

You can buy the Countach from the used car dealer or win it from the Lamborghini Exclusive A-Spec Professional race (which I did and now have two of these babiesSmile
I bought mine 2nd hand, threw on some mods (not all), slapped on some soft sport tyres and won this Lambo exclusive race easily, even with less HP. You don't need a rear wing at all.
The Countach only needs all the power you can throw on it and soft race tyres when participating in the Supercar Festival - Daytona Speedway race, when it comes to pure speed. And even then you don't need the rear wing. It outperforms all those modern day supercars easily and I don't even consider myself a good driver Smile

I drove the seasonal event with german touring cars. I got 399.000 for 4 mins driving on an oval track. But since the 2.0 update I only get 264.000 even with the 200% online login bonus. Did they cut the prizes on the seasonal events? And btw the prices of the cars at the online car dealer have doubled now...

By Far the best grind for credits I've found is this:
Seasonal events/Real circuit tours/Nurburgring. I use the Minolta Toyota 88C-V race car, and can easily place first and yeild 678,900 credits in around 7 minutes!!! so far I have been able to do this race repetedly, and win the prize money each time, I have accrued many many millions of credits this way!

Best I've found is classic muscle daytona in seasonal events, 5 laps - 4 mins in a cobra fully modded nets you 101,000, quick easy money

Agree with above so far Extreme American Championship 5 lap Indy is the fastest credits/experience. GT LM Race Car Spec II is easy sauce - never let go o da gas.

Find someone online to gift you a Redbull F1 Car and you can do the whole track in 1:59 (my best time) makes quick work of anything you are trying to save up for

Turbo series ring is the best. Bugatti Veyron (free for wins) with good tires and suspension can pull near 1:01 lap times putting you right at 3mins for 50K.

Level 19 - Expert.
You're actually better off using the Turbo series, High speed ring can be done in 3 minutes for a fraction less credits. And it's only level 17.

Plus if it's experience you're after, earning a bonus for a championship doesn't get you more exp whereas if you spend roughly the same amount of time in turbo series you face more times and hence earn more exp.

Mazda Furai with a high rev turbo is ace Smile
