highest $ per second.
Tokyo 550.000 @ 25m = 1.320.000/h (wallrunning would be higher, but I dont know their times) / (there are cars that can go faster than 25m in a fair race, like the Swappucino or the Audi Quattro)
Sardegna 485.000 @ 22m30s = 1.293.333/h (Turbodatsun record)
Le Man 550.000 @ 30m = 1.100.000/h
Spa 1.000.000 @ 60m = 1.000.000/h

To the dedicated with a track of knowing how to CRB with a car, Tokyo is slightly more credits per time.
Yet I cant deny having a guaranteed CRB is also something nice to consider.
Multiply by 1.5 for having the CRB values, but the ranking stays the same.
 
Yeah, an assured CRB is a big deal. You miss the CRB 1 in 10 runs and you've lost whatever advantage the race may have on an "earnings per hour" basis. Plus, for myself Sardegna is a far far more pleasant environment to grind than Tokyo. I hate that track lol...

Sorry for this noob question but what does ‘CRB’ means ?
as noted, Clean Race Bonus. It's a 50% extra payout for not messing up during the race. So for Sardegna, the race pays 485K for 1st place, and if you get the CRB that payout goes up to 727k. And the thing about Sardegna is it's next to impossible to not get the CRB.

I always get my CRB on Spa.
 
Yep. Thanks to that, I can park my car just before the finish around 5 mins before the race ends. 😅
yeah I just really don't want to deal with even having to drive in the wet. Just not something I enjoy...and if I'm going to have to run the race 500 times I want it to be as stress-free and meditative as possible lol
 
Only times you tend to loose it at Spa are for yellow flag incident (i.e. overtaking whilst yellow flag is waved); however if you've been watching the rain radar and change tyres before it becomes really wet (common at Spa).
You often find that transition lap you are upwards of a minute quicker than cars still on slicks and end up mid corner 60mph faster than someone else and a car perhaps even in the same turn has just spun out. Last time I lost CRB in those circumstances I overtook four places in one corner, I couldn't have stopped behind them even if I'd wanted too and taking the line they ended up on would have resulted in a four car pile up.
 
Tokyo isn't CRB friendly
Depends on how much of an advantageous car you pick.
In the unfairly fast cars I find it difficult to lose the CRB, this risk only exists in cars that can not take the lead in the first 1.5 laps.
Those runaway cars make it quite easy, because you almost are ahead before the first turn, and then only need to time your lapping overtakes to places without any risk.
 
When it comes to grinding for Cr. in GT7, you're repeating the race/s over and over to acquire the credits, regardless what race you do it in, repetition=results. In terms of the quickest time and most payout per race, Tokyo still takes the cake even after all these updates. If you know of a better method, by all means share it with us.

Strategy:
Car: V6 Escudo Pikes Peak on comfort hard(CH) tyres for the fronts and comfort medium(CM) for the rears, High-RPM Turbocharger.
This setup with downforce and gearing settings(pics below) gives the car a 1,152 BHP and easily sneaks in under the 600PP regulations for this race at 583PP. I always lap all the AI cars twice with this setup. You can experiment with the gearing to shave a few more seconds here and there if you have the time and patience.
Wall ride everywhere except at the last turn(hairpin). When wall riding, I find that pushing the left analog stick away from the wall achieves a faster consistent time with each lap. Be careful not to touch the hairpin lines at the last turn or bump into the AI throughout the race, which isn't hard to do once you get the hang of it and you'll get Cr. 825,000(with CRB) in about 21-22mins. One of my fastest runs was achieved in under 20 mins(tinker with gearing), but that required full concentration, whereas the 21-22 minute runs are much more chill and easily achievable. I have no probs getting the CRB every time I run it.

WTC800/Spa (which I also do; it's impossible to lose the CRB unless you pass under yellows and get a penalty for it), WTC800/Sardegna, and WTC700/Le Mans.
Despite crashing my Living Legend monumentally into walls and other cars at the Sardegna event, the Clean Race Bonus is always delivered with a smile. Not that I'm complaining. Without crashing, it's easy to win with about a minute to spare in that Porsche on RH tires. Cr 700K plus.
 
Right, but Spa has rain right? (plus, the credits/hour ratio is less at Spa than the other races)
Le Mans 30 mins has usually rain too. Le Mans and Spa are both good to grind credits because even those tracks are very awesome to drive. I anyway would like Polyphnony to introduce more races with 500 000 - 1 000 000 payout.
 
For me, Sardegna is the winner. Guaranteed CRB, easy race (if not a bit boring at times) and no needing to think of strategies or be overly creative with your racing. I've actually yet to run the Spa and Le Mans races, but for me Tokyo is a no-go. I did it a while back, but for guaranteed maximum credits, Sardegna is the one.

My is Tokyo but lately I been running Sardegna cause of how much I enjoy using the 919 in that race its pure bliss.:embarrassed:
 
I often find myself doing the Tokyo race a lot even if getting the CRB is now harder (though that could go down to me having this new thing of trying out different cars for that event specifically), but Spa is also a relatively easy way to get money since the AI isn't smart enough to react to the weather change and most Gr. 3 cars can do it with ease, especially for newer players who might find themselves using only the Corvette from completing all Bronze from the license tests.

Sardegna is one that I always slept on, but with the 2008 GT500s and some other detuned Gr. 2s it is manageable. Should add the aforementioned Circuit Experiences, Online Time Trials plus the Weekly Challenges that give out cash bonuses too.
 
What difficulty are you guys running Le Mans?
Whatever suits you best, it doesnt really matter.
I selected "difficult" on my first starting of the game and never changed it for difficulty reasons but to test/verify some claims regarding difficulty and AI times. But my conclusion is that AI is so inconsistent that it really doesnt matter generally speaking, though lower difficulties are easier to win most of the times.

This is false you can cross that line all day long and not lose the CRB only touching the cones is what will lose you the CRB.

Point 2 is also false why yes you want to avoid hitting the AI there are parts of the track where you can hit the AI and not lose the CRB in my experience after doing Tokyo over 2000 times I learn in which parts of the track you can and cant hit the AI.
 
I'm grinding this: https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/thre...rough-custom-races-using-a-demio-1-44.424206/

You just have not to be greedy with the nitro when exiting turns, otherwise you understeer into a wall. 500k in ~13 minutes.

Thinking about it I should either add a lap, or maybe do one less (but repeat the race twice) in order to complete the daily workout quicker and call it a day if I'm in a hurry. Those 6 laps only take you to ~37km total.

So no effect on the weather? Like how often it changes and how bad it gets?

For some events it is totally random while for others the cycle is fixed to a timer, though the timer seems to change by each update and has a certain randomness but is about the same if you count laps.
This was the case in Human Comedy Red Bull Ring a few updates ago, but I havent rerun this any recently and just reading it seems to have changed a bit.
