    • Gran Turismo Sport 100% Speedrun Notes

    Tests / Needs to be Completed:

    • Need to practice Mission Challenges, Driving School and Circuit Experience

    Tests Completed:
    • Find a combination that be used once all other tasks have been completed in between Daily Races [Custom Race: Tuned N100 Miata vs Gr1, professional difficulty, 2 cars start 2nd, rolling start, closest rolling gap, boost off, 4 laps = 2nd place 440xp guaranteed (640xp for 1st) or 5 laps = 2nd place 540xp guaranteed (740xp for 1st)]
    • Exact Schedule needs to be refined [Has been refined and updated below]
    • Exact times for all additional tasks between Daily Races needs to be documented [Check Schedule but couldn't be bothered to find exact times]
    • Tuning vs No Tuning race comparison for optimal completion times in Mission Challenges [Tuning will always outweigh no tuning]
    • Need to identify when I can rush click into menus or not to prevent wrongful clicks/glitch outs [Do not rush click. It will glitch out PS4/game]
    • Optimize controller vs wheel buttons for menu scrolling [New wheel has buttons on for easy menu scrolling]
    • Any glitches to end a race quicker or leave them sooner and still count towards 322 races [No glitches or way to leave sooner and still get rewards for race]
    • Test different methods/ of staying awake without crashing from exhaustion [Can't be done, just make sure not to be one of those guys that die on stream from exhaustion]
    • Test screen brightness to background brightness for eye fatigue factors [Made it as close as possible with background brightness, should've gotten glasses for this but too late now]
    • Test different seating arrangements for comfortably and longevity [I put a soft towel on my hard chair. About as good as it's going to get]
    • Meal prep / food and drink plan [Making entire runs worth of food day prior. All food, drinks and silverware will be completed beforehand]
    • Accessibility to access food and drinks during game play easily [Wrapped in a cocoon of white goods. Fridge, microwave and toaster]
    • Relaxation and mental stamina tests and improvements [LOL. I probably wouldn't be doing this is if I wasn't mental ;)]
    • Lowest amount of sleep while maintaining optimal performance on track [Ideally, 8 hours is great sleep to maintain optimal performance. But I'm going to try and get away with 4 hours a night]\
    • Mazda Roadster need tune N100 for off-roading [Completed and ready for the dirt!]

    Races - 259 Experience Farming Races

    I’ve decided I want to speedrun GT Sport. There are a couple things you can accomplish but I think the easiest would be the Finale Trophy.

    Requirements for the trophy are to complete Driving School and Mission Challenges bronze or better. Once completed the ending movie will play.

    I found a website that doesn’t provide any proof of any runs done for GT Sport and a claimed 14 hour time that to Finale trophy.

    Question 1: Has anyone found/have any websites or proof of any speedrun on GT Sport?

    Question 2: Never had speedrun a game besides GT6, level 50 speedrun seems too unrealistic. 100% complete platinum trophy off the table. What other accomplishments could be achieved and considered speedrun worthy? *Update* Deciding if I think this is doable now.

    Question 3: How would one go about when to start and end a speedrun? Having not seen any evidence of a run when would be the appropriate time to do either?

    well, since speedrunning contains a lot of resets and retries, i wonder how you will do this? Every run a new account?

    What’s a speed run?


    Quick from Wikipedia.

    IMO the driving school, missions, CE and career mode are too easy in GTS compared to previous games. If you know the basics you can get gold pretty much single try making speedrun comparisons pointless.

    In previous games people have tried speedrunning completing GT League with only prize cars. But in GTS with the random roulette it's not really consistent between different attempts so that's out too.

    Honestly, the only speedrun that I think worth doing is all diamond in Hamilton challenges. There's a degree of skill involved (read: a LOT), and can be done in one sitting if you're good enough.

    Yes, unfortunately, having a new account each run would be the way to go.

    I’ve been doing some research and considering doing a Level 50 or Platinum Trophy run now. Going to have heaps of time off soon so figure why not lol

    From what I found last night I calculated around 136 hours to complete platinum trophy. On another account I’ve already clocked 11:23:17 for Circuit Experience(with all current tracks), Driving School, Mission Challenges all gold personally on Twitch. Just have to go about the most efficient route and a more precise estimated time of completion.

    The Platinum trophy in GT requires 91 online wins, 65 online poles and I think 322 races completed, not the easiest of Platinum trophies to get.
  8. WestRoadZ


    I’m not too worried about the wins and poles. If you derank a couple races they should be quite easy to achieve. 322 races though is what will be the grind. I updated the OP with some figures and how long I roughly think it will take to complete. Still need more information and testing but think it could be doable

    I think the most impressive "speed runner" thing you could do with GTS is try to set a record time for DR/SR from E/B to A+/S.

    You could record it with races entered, miles driven or overall time taken. You also wouldn't need a new account every attempt as DR/SR can be force reset through unscrupulous means.
  10. WestRoadZ


    Hey mate, I’ve already done this but without qualifying. E to A+ Rank with no quali in America’s region as well as Oceania Region. Only have EU region but no plans on doing that anytime soon.

    Kudosprime vvv

    NAQuaiichallenge (yes that’s correct spelling, messed up when making OG profile, NAQualiChallenge, and put it in Australia lol still looks like how I want it though in game)

    Under normal circumstances no, however I do recall one guy here who via unashamedly gaming the system (I think he was quitting every second race, if not 2 out of 3 in order to keep his rankings bottomed out) managed to get those two trophies in 14 days.
    While not what I would consider an enjoyable and rewarding way to play the game, I did have to pay the guy props for achieving his goal in a brutally efficient fashion.

    Good luck speed grinding level 50 without a rubber band though lol.

    Interesting. I personally think it'd be faster if one were able to reliably qualify up the sharp end of races, but it might present a hard choice between ~20 mins qualifying or entry in a race where rank can be earned.

    Either way I'd have to say the master run should be set in EMEA, the most populated and competitive region. An official-ish record for this might create an interesting challenge amongst the faster drivers in the game.

    Cool to see people trying some stuff like this with GT and a game with such a heavy online component.

    I might take that route. Just so it’s easier and takes less mental strain for the long speedrun it will be :lol:

    I self deranked to get the the wins and poles trophies quickly as I was trying to platinum the game. Don't really care about playing GT "the right way" when it comes to trophies. Eventually gave up when I saw how slow XP builds but had a go recently at grinding XP.

    For the poles/wins trophies it could be dependent on when you try to get them. Around 40 each of those for me came during one of the first weeks of weekly races, with the Honda Beat around Yamagiwa in Race A. I put a lot of time into it and got a very good lap time. It was also a race - and I didn't know this at the time - where A/A+ drivers aren't likely to feature very often. Couple that with the recent increase in people playing the game overall and it's a potentially beneficial combination.

    Even then, 322 races with a race every 20 minutes is what, the equivalent of nearly four and a half straight days. I'm not sure how you can cut that down.

    Maybe take more people on board and play in shifts? Kinda like in an endurance race ;) This Platinum is way too daunting to speedrun on your own. For me that is at least.

    I got the game on 19.10.2017 and earned Platinum Trophy almost 2 months later on 11.12.2017.
    My last trophy was the 322 online races. This wasn't a Speedrun but I played it a lot (several hours per day).
    You can calculate this down to 2 hours ( 6 races with 20 min) per only in online mode. Additional I used the first glitch grinde on Nürburgring for XP , where you had to enter the pit backwards to complete a race in 20 sec. Don´t know how many times I did this but it was several times faster than what we have now.
    Level 50 needs 2,3 Mio. XP and good races to grind make about 36k per hour, so this takes additional 60 hours.
    I think in total you need about 200 hours to do this. Most of it just boring grinding.
    In my opinion better Speedruns for GT would be all License tests on gold, or completing all driving missions.

    You could also try and speedrun all diamond on the LH DLC, if masochism is your vibe. That's basically just ten uber hard time trials back to back so it'd be similar to an all gold license type of run.

    I know that some of the top players (some of them resident here) cleared the whole thing pretty quick and even streamed the whole thing, so you'd have other times or "records" to work against.

    Gonna need to be bloody quick and consistent to clear it faster than the world tour boys. Definitely an impressive record to set.

    According to PSNProfiles, the current fastest completion time for the GT Sport Platinum is 2 weeks and 4 days (or about 439 hours). It's totally doable in less than that, but it will take a lot of determination. Doing it on a team account would be a lot easier but in the end you'd have to share the glory :p

    That was only achieved via a glitch which allowed for much more rapid leveling. Doing nothing but the most profitable race for XP will take you 52 hours to go from 0-50 (and that's ignoring the fact that you don't unlock it until level 20 anyway) on its own.

    Then you have to do 322 online races, which is a minimum of 107 hours (and you have to win 91 of them, though you can game that by coming last in two races and winning the third [lather, rinse, repeat]) because they only take place every 20 minutes.

    Combined, you're talking about the two grindiest trophies in no less than six days of game time (because your 322 races will count towards the XP you need to get to level 50) - that's without any breaks. If you assume you will be sleeping for some of that time (and you can set the game to gain XP while you're sleeping, and do some other tasks while you're eating; hope someone will bring you food and caffeine), figure on the minimum being eight days.

    This is more of a personal challenge. I've done all of GT6 way back in the day and that took forever. Did it on Twitch in segments and used the ingame playtime timer to get the completed time. This time however I want to have it fully recorded for an official record on GT Sport ;)

    Hey @zocker_16 first off love your Youtube channel :)

    That's about how many Experience points I'd earn doing the BlueMoon Bay Premium Lounge race an hour ~34,000xp (averaging N200/N300 races with LaFerrari or McLaren F1 in 1st)

    I thought there was 2.4 million Experience Points Total? Or is there 2.3 million in just Level 50 alone??

    2 weeks ago I did a Finale Trophy all Gold speedrun in 7:29:36 and 100% Campaign (Circuit Experience all current tracks) all Gold in 11:23:17. I found some time to be cut since going back and testing different routes so having that knowledge should help with this run ;)

    Might give this a go after the speedrun, down to 3 shifts a week is stretching the income :lol:

    Being in Australia that limits the quality of the races going to another region. I do agree that there will be more competition and users in EMEA and higher DR drivers online at any given point. This is something that I'm still deciding though. It being a speedrun would make sense to have the easiest region to put less mental strain per race give3n how long it will take. But then again a lot of the big YouTubers and streamers are in EMEA and if they got ear of this and wanted to give it a go surely they would pick the EMEA region. Definitely something I need to look into a bit more though.

    Like @stpatty did, beginning the week with a strong qualifying time in either Race A or B seems the best way to get easy wins and poles on the Monday and Tuesday. I will most likely end up doing what @Famine has suggested and @JayRS200 has done for it seems the best route at this time. Unless the higher DR lobbies give a substantial amount more of Experience points per race. I still need to test this.

    Hey @Famine I've put up a vote on two GT Sport Facebook pages to ask if I should use the rubberband trick in an online lobby to gain experience while I'm asleep. I've had results showing that they believe this would tarnish the achievement. So not going to play while asleep and leave the game on the Home Screen still streaming for continuous gameplay/recording. I have a rough schedule of 5 hours a sleep a day getting around 9 days to complete.

    I have the roommates and Wifey on board with helping achieve this feat. Meal prepping the day prior to the start of the speedrun, detailed list of foods and drinks and times to interact to stay mentally fit throughout. A lot of this run will be their help with keeping me focused on the game. Naturally, going to have to treat them after this occasion :bowdown:

    Just have to time it so it falls between updates. Can't imagine 7 days in and have a surprise update from PD :lol:

    You don't get more XP for higher DR races. Race length is the only thing that affects XP for online races.

    Thanks mate, this saved me some time having to go test this out

    You might already be aware of this but just one final piece of advice: Since you're going for the Platinum completion time world record, your speedrun only ever begins when you've earned your first trophy. Therefore it's wise to delay popping any trophies for as long as possible. There are a few trophies where this works very well, like for instance the ones for beating all Driving school challenges. Just beat all challenges except for one and you'll have made quite a bit of progress before even starting the timer. The same goes for all the Mission Challenge related trophies. The most problematic trophy here is Experienced Driver (Drove for a total of 62.5 miles). I don't think there is a way to stop the game from keeping track of your driving distance while saving your campaign progression at the same time, so the best advice here is to one-shot as many challenges as possible before this one pops. You can do this offline on a blank account which will prevent you from going through the hassle of signing up for PSN every time you need to restart. You could also one-shot the challenges one by one while backing up your save file inbetween to prevent yourself from losing your progress in case you mess up. Once you've secured yourself the best possible starting position you can sign up for PSN and receive your birthday gift car. Also watch out for Run, Run, Run! (Earned your first Daily Workout). This one can be prevented easily but you need to be mindful of it.

    Speedrunning trophies can get quite complicated when you get into the meat of things so you'll have to decide for yourself how seriously you want to take this ;) I wish you the best of luck :tup: I've got nowhere near the persistance to take on a challenge like this :lol:

    edit: I just remembered you can't back up your save before signing up for PSN. Since save files are encrypted so they can only be used by the player they belong to, the PS4 won't let you transfer them anywhere else before you've signed up and thus the encryption is in place.

    It’s possible that you could cut down some of the sport mode time by doing short portions of CE or license tests between the waiting periods for the entry. For example, this last week’s race A was only ~6mins on track, with another 3-4 spent on matching, warmup, and pre and post-race screens and loading. I was usually getting the practice/quali with 8-9 mins before the next match, which is certainly enough time to cram a few sectors in even with load times. You just need to hope for a short race A/B to show up again. That’d be quite the calculation for the optimal path, though...

    Also, doesn’t quitting a race lower DR/SR? You might be able to clock up entries while keeping the matches easy for wins, if it doesn’t require a finish for an entry. And if this does in fact work then you can alternate between race A and B for 10 min intervals, and/or maybe include the above strategy of interspersing short licenses, missions, CEs, or other short tasks. So potentially ~230 short interval races and 91 full length races for wins at perfect efficiency.

    You list the acquired car trophy completion requirement with purchasing from Brand Central, but forgot to account for the CEs awarding you cars (unless I’m mistaken and that trophy requires the cars to be purchased with credits).

    With photomode I believe there’s an option to render at 1080p or even lower and that should reduce time to some extent.

    You probably won’t have to worry about the level requirements if you time the sport races and CEs well, as they should give hefty enough payouts. My friend started the game recently and with a single-digit number of completed CEs, only the first license row, I think only the first three mission rows, two Mercedes F1 league events, and less than 100 sport races he’s almost level 29.

    Thanks for the tip! I've actually been looking around for a time to start the speedrun but I think the proper way to go about it is to start when I get my first car after the intro movie. Just to have a total length from the very start to finish :tup: I have heaps of accounts and recently made a tester account for different things to test on this speedrun :lol:

    Thanks for the support again :cheers:

    That's what I have in mind right now. It would be good to get all the small Mission Challenges, Driving School and Circuit Experience events out of the way. The Photographer Trophy will take around 10 minutes to complete so I can split it in two lots of 5 mins to accomplish that as well as the two other photo mode trophies. Still having to take a look at it and plan the most efficient route so I don't miss a race on accident.

    I have an updated list on my phone and when I have time I update GTP :D But yes, as far as I know, I have to buy the 10 cars to get the trophy. This could be wrong but I'm not too worried about it because that will take all of 5 mins in the grand scheme of things.

    The Photographer Trophy route I'll be going from Daily Races to Scapes to Laguna Seca (first one up), select the first location, changed to a 1:1 ratio, any car in the frame and aim at the ground and zoom in. This seemed to have a low render time even without having a lower resolution option. (6 seconds for the shot, render and back out for next picture) Might have a look to find a lower resolution photo that might speed things up. But then again you run into taking time going through the menu to get there with the possibility of accidental clicks. Still something that can be refined.

    Yeah see the first 30 levels are quite quick, it's going to be the last 10 levels that are really going to test me and my patience :lol:

    Thanks for the help mate, seems we're both thinking the same level here :cheers:

    Other than that, still coming up with a route that will keep me from mentally draining myself too soon in the run. The BlueMoon Bay Experience Farm I can do literally half asleep. It's maintaining that focus on the Daily Races and a great qualifying time that will really set the pace of the run. But for some reason, I feel that there will be a lot of time just waiting for races to load with nothing left to complete a couple of days in. The campaign doesn't really take all that long to complete compared to the ~186 total hours I've estimated.

    Hello again GTP :gtpflag:

    The time has come and on the 19th of September I’ll be starting the Platinum Trophy Speed Run! Welcoming you all to come check it out streaming on Twitch.TV / WestRoadZ!

    I’ve put a couple of months on and off into routing and planning this run and not expecting it to be perfect but to just complete it would be the goal. Can only hope that GT doesn’t decide on an update during it or massive internet issues on my end. Anywho, thanks for the support everyone :cheers:

    I hope you have plans to eat, drink, relieve yourself, rest, etc. during the run. It’s going to be quite a long run, especially for the Sport Mode trophies. To put it into perspective, there’s a GT3 100% speedrun on YT with over three days of constant driving. This is a plan for eight days. I’m not sure if I can handle even six hours of nonstop racing.

    Good luck!
