This Baja Story Mission has you pretending to be an actor. But getting big in Hollywood isn’t our goal. Our prize is the Koenigsegg Jesko we get at the end of this 12-part Story mission. But in order to do so, we need 3-star ratings for all of V10’s missions.
Here are all the missions and their requirements for a three star rating. Plenty of them have to do with reaching the finish line under a specific timeframe. You can filter the story missions on your map to be able to find them easier. You can finish these missions in less than an hour.

8. Scene 107
To get a 3-star rating for the Scene 107 mission, you need to reach the finish line in under 2 minutes and 50 seconds. Mind the few shortcuts on the track to make it easier.
