Some people have mistaken this chapter as a How-to or a ready-made Strategy. This chapter depicting the ideal case in an ideal world and is supposed to give you a few calculation, upon which the player can base his/her own personal strategy, dependent on the Credits and the time that are invested.
If you suppose that you will not get further than race 14, which happens to be a safe point, you will earn 3,010 EP in 14 races. In order to get 75,000 EP, you will need to play 25*14=349 races, using 25 Enduro Invitations, taking up a little more that 8 days to deliver (1 Invitation being delivered per 8 hours), with the Event duration of 8 days being just not sufficiently long. Since you know how to get to race 14, you can play it double, getting a reward of 5640, reducing the necessary races to 14*14 = 196 races, and playtime being down to 5 days.
Compared to an estimate of minimum of 120, or realistic medium of 180 races of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R&D event, this seems quite comparable. However, there are a lot less constraints than with the R&D Event; you do not need to fully upgrade nor the Weber Faster One nor the other cars in order to gain EP, and you can earn the SRT 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and the Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) along the way. Still, the higher you upgrade them, the higher you get before losing a race and starting over. Also the time constraint is less harsh with this event, since you can play up to four streaks in a row (the one that you are currently playing, plus 3 pending invitations).
Extrapolation from the numbers from races until race 24 suggest that you can play it safe until the final race 55, and earn close to 70,000 EP. However this would need you to MAX+PRO the Weber Faster One, since the Ace Race is expected to be very difficult.
On the other hand, if you go for the double every time, you might reach 75,000 EP around race 46. However this would require a perfect win streak, and proably race 46 is not an Ace Race.
A middle way would be to play double until race 19 for 8 times, earning you each time 9,920 EP. This can be achieved using a Weber with MAX 3402 and PRO 0012 and Nitro Starter & Tuning Kit for Ace Race 14 and 19. However, in order to get the Weber to this level, there is more than 1,000,000 needed.
Based on the above analysis, every player needs to find his or her own strategy. There are many factors which can lead to failed races before the set goal. Take into account the following points:
- People make mistakes. One mistake is enough to lose a whole streak. You might need to spend Tokens.
- EDD involves 8 cars and the Weber. If you want to win, you will need upgrade most of the cars at least MAX 2-4-0-1 PRO 0-0-2-0, which costs easily a few million credits (usually at least 12 million is needed) and some pro cards.
- The Jaguar F-Type R is a horrible car. Horrible acceleration and poor nitro duration make impossible to compete with AI so this car need more upgrade than others. Or probably just need skills.
- With time, races will become more difficult, however no exact information is available currently. So when you thought you can achieve the Ace Race 14, you fail. And need to spend tokens for re-try or auto-pass.
- A number of challenges are hard because AI cars are very messy. So if you want to avoid this difficulty, use double booster, Nitro Starter+Tuning Kit. For example, French Guiana Reverse map has a very narrow road right a the start, AI crash each other and block the way so you can't catch up with first leader. Using double boost can avoid this sort of trouble.
You best find out until which challenge you can go, and play it double before that challenge. And as time goes by, you probably must lower that challenge. For example, if you can do until race 19, maybe 3 days later you should only go double until race 14

This should get you the Weber pretty sure:
- Start with just 'use invitation' (without double)
- After race 3 go double
- Keep going double until race 10, you'll earn 3,120 points
- After, don't go double, unless you upgraded enough
- Keep it up for 8 days! You can get 74,880 EP (24 streaks: 3 invitation per day, 8 days long)
- In the beginning of the EDD event, go until race 14 two or three times, it is enough to win the Weber
