Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Doppelgangers

Mondays mean a new set of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races, and the latest trio is now available — although you might be forgiven for a mild sense of deja vu.

As with most of the recent races, all three this week use the “Balance of Performance” (BOP) system for equalizing vehicle performance. Tuning and settings tweaks aren’t allowed, as the cars all have a specific power output and weight to match them as closely as possible for pace.

Following the most recent 1.13 update, players can borrow cars for the races if they’d prefer not to use their own garage cars. That allows you to race if you don’t own an eligible car, try out something different, or just keep the miles off your own machinery — although you won’t be able to use custom liveries if you do.

Race A sees a repeat of last week’s cars, with the new Subaru BRZ S ’21 joining its sister car, the Toyota GR86, which made its debut in GT Sport.

There’s a change of scenery though, as you’ll be racing the twins at the Nurburgring GP circuit. It’s a simple, five-lap race around the circuit, on Sports Hard tires — which will be provided if you choose to rent a car.

For this week’s Race B you’ll be heading to the redesigned Trial Mountain circuit. The new layout will host a four-lap race for Gr.4 machinery, although it’s likely that the car of choice will be one of the four-wheel drive vehicles in the class.

Again, there’s no special considerations, so just equip Racing Hard tires and pound out the sprint event as fast as you can.

The ruleset for Race C is also surprisingly simple this week. There’s no mandatory tires, no pit stop requirements, and not even any enhanced tire wear or fuel consumption.

This then becomes a third sprint race for the week. All you’ll need to do is select a Gr.3 car, strap on Racing Hard tires, and head out for an eight lap race around the long, combined Kyoto Driving Park circuit which takes in both the challenging Yamagiwa layout and the compact Miyabi loop.

In order to access the Daily Races, you’ll need to unlock Sport Mode, by completing Menu Book 9 (“Championship: Tokyo Highway Parade”) in the GT Cafe single player hub.

As GT7’s Daily Races have thus far updated on the same weekly schedule as that of the majority of GT Sport’s life, we’d expect the next new set to arrive on Monday May 16.
