Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Globetrotting With GT7

A new set of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races is now available, bringing fresh challenges to players over the next seven days — and a chance to give your Driver Rating a boost ahead of the official Manufacturers Cup season.

Of course you won’t be able to do that in Race A, which remains a “No DR/SR Updates” event. This is basically a free hit in the form of a scheduled race, which doesn’t affect your Driver Rating or Sportsmanship Rating.

This week it’s a classic Gran Turismo combination, consisting of a Mazda Roadster and the Tsukuba Circuit — harking back to an endurance race in GT games of old, as well as a real-life event.

You’ll need a fourth-generation NR-A Roadster on Comfort Soft tires, which you can borrow for the race in a selection of colors which includes a Mazda Spirit Racing livery, for the eight-lap race.

Race B returns to its regular race car event, this week for the GT3-like category of Gr.3 race cars. These are custom-built racing machines that often look similar to road-going supercars and high performance machines, but are drastically different under the skin.

You can select any of the Gr.3 cars for this race, with Racing Medium tires fitted, but you’re going to need some brave pills as the track itself is not particularly well-suited to these 500hp+ machines.

Autodrome Lago Maggiore once again hosts the race, but it’s at the tiny Center layout and in the Reverse direction — placing the tight left-right combination as the final corner and an awkward uphill hairpin as turn one.

It’s an eight-lap race of the track and victory will likely be decided by who survives lap one, turn one.

Finally Race C visits the Daytona Road Course for a ten-lap race, with the Gr.4 machinery occupying this longer race slot for the second week in a row. This version of the circuit includes the twisty infield, but a lot of it is full throttle on the banking, so power will probably be king here.

As with last week, it’s not likely to be an event high on strategy — thankfully, given the awkward pit entry and enormous pit exit at Daytona — with neither the fuel consumption nor tire wear multipliers high enough to force a pit stop. It should be a simple enough ten-lap sprint with the Racing Hards as the only option.

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 June 12.
