Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Pulp Fiction

The newest Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races are now available, giving players some fresh challenges to occupy them for the next seven days.

This week we’re taking in three of the game’s fictional circuits, all based on locations in Europe, for the racing action. The rotation has also returned to normal following the two weeks of GT World Final celebrations, so there’ll be no mid-week changes this time round!

Race A stands to be one of the more chaotic we’ve seen, as it takes in the madcap Alsace Test Course track. This otherwise sensible cut-through circuit, based around a short section of the final sector of the Village course, features a rollercoaster of a bend which will be a crash-magnet.

Thankfully it’s also a “No DR/SR” event, as usual, so you won’t gain or lose Driver or Sportsmanship Rating points for the race.

You can use either the Toyota GR86 or its sibling Subaru BRZ for the eight-lap race on Sports Hard tires — and be aware that even under BOP conditions, those cars with engine swaps may have an advantage. Watch out for the false start check on the grid start, which may make the difference when it comes to your track position for the crucial first pass of the rollercoaster.

Race B is more normal fare, consisting of a four-lap race of Dragon Trail Seaside in your choice of Gr.3 car. This has been a staple of Gran Turismo since the Beta phase of GT Sport back in 2017, so we should all be very familiar with it by now.

You’ll be using Racing Medium tires, which is one grade softer than usual, but otherwise this should be a race you can do in your sleep.

That leaves Race C which heads into the middle of the Mediterranean, and Sardegna Road Track A. This is the full four-cornered version of the map which heads out into the Sardinian countryside, and you’ll be running ten laps of the circuit.

It’s an open race for Gr.4 cars which almost always means AWD is the theme of the day, but there’s some tire considerations this time round.

Firstly, the wear rate is a little higher than usual at 7x — meaning tires wear seven times faster than standard, so you’ll need to factor in a strategy for 70 laps of tire wear. You’ll also need to use both Racing Medium and Racing Soft during the race, crossing the start/finish on the main straight at least once with each grade.

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 December 12.
