Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Winning Formula

The latest set of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races is now available, running for the next seven days, with three of the game’s F1 circuits hosting the racing.

Once again, Race A is a “No DR/SR” event. Players will neither gain nor lose Driver or Sportsmanship Rating points, no matter what happens. This effectively turns the race into a scheduled, but region-limited, public lobby race — and a chance to have some risk-free fun.

Fuji International Speedway hosts the race, which is another tuning event this week. You’ll be limited to mid-engined, rear-wheel drive road cars, with a maximum of 295hp and a minimum weight of 1,250kg, on Sports Hard tires.

Beyond that — and the usual limitations on nitrous — you can do whatever you like to tune the car for Fuji’s massive main straight and somewhat awkward final sector. Detuning supercars is a common tactic, as the wide rubber provides more grip, but there’s also some sports cars right on these figures and plenty of engine-swapped candidates.

It’s a five-lap race with no additional tire wear, fuel consumption multipliers, mandatory tires, or required pit stops. You’ll just need to be aware of the grid start with false-start check, which will penalize you with a loss of engine power if you jump the final light.

Race B is another simple affair, consisting of a five-lap race of the “temple of speed”: Monza. You can select any Gr.3 race car for the race, on Racing Hard tires, which will just be a five-lap blast.

That leaves us with Race C, which has a tactical twist this week. The regular F1 test venue of Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya — in full GP layout, including the final chicane — stages the race for Gr.4 cars

You can select Racing Hard or Racing Medium tires, but the Hard option is mandatory: you must complete a lap on the Hards during the race (pitting before you start lap one, or on the final lap before the checkered flag, does not count) or you’ll receive a one-minute time penalty after the race.

However there’s also a 7x fuel consumption multiplier, which means the cars drain their tanks at seven times the usual rate. With it being a ten-lap race, that means you’ll need 70 laps’ worth of fuel, so either you’ll need to fuel-save for the entire race on Hards, or run Mediums and dive into the pits once for fuel and a tire grade swap.

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.

With GT7’s Daily Races updating every Monday thus far, the next new set should arrive on Monday November 14.
