Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Red Bull & Cope

This week’s set of Daily Races is now available in Gran Turismo 7, as three more events are set to challenge players through the next seven days.

Once again, Race A is a “No DR/SR Updates” event. That means that neither your Driver Rating nor Sportsmanship Rating will be affected by the race, no matter how well or badly things go.

It’s a one-make race for the tiny Daihatsu Copen this week, with the 62hp, front-wheel drive convertible your steed for the week.

Autodrome Lago Maggiore will host the race, on the short “East End” layout. This version of the circuit is based around the “arena” section of the first sector of the main course, cutting through between the esses and turn four.

It’s a six-lap race on Comfort Medium tires, which should make for some interesting handling, particularly in the stadium section itself.

Race B requires a Gr.4 car, which are Gran Turismo 7’s equivalent to GT4 cars: stripped back race cars based on production vehicles, with race-grade mechanicals, tires, and aerodynamics.

It’s a five-lap sprint race at Road Atlanta for your chosen machine, for which you’ll need to fit Racing Hard tires. As there’s no meaningful tire wear or fuel consumption, whatever serves you well for qualifying will probably be good in the race, though we’d recommend a lighter, rear-wheel drive car.

This week’s Race C heads to Red Bull Ring for a Gr.3 race, but you’ll need to pay heed to the tire regulations here.

There’s mandatory tires this week, with both the Racing Medium and Racing Soft being required for at least one lap each during the 13-lap race. If you don’t use both at some point in the race, you’ll earn a one-minute post-race penalty.

With a high, 10x tire wear rate — so each lap generates ten laps’ worth of wear — you’re going to want to get the most out of the soft option, but not wear them down so much they’re slower than new mediums. Fuel consumption is set at a 2x multiplier, so won’t be a factor.

Given that a pit stop is required to switch your tires, watch out for cutting the pit lane on entry or exit, which will earn you a three-second penalty.

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 across the game’s life to date, the next new set should arrive on Monday May 22.
