Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Devil Inside

Gran Turismo 7’s newest set of Daily Races is now available, with three fresh events for players to show off their online multiplayers skills for the next seven days.

This week’s events once again feature some limited vehicle tuning, as we’ve seen a couple of times in recent weeks, with both Race B and Race C allowing players to tweak certain suspension settings.

Race A however remains its usual format, as a one-make event, but with a mild twist from the normal “No DR/SR Updates” format. While your Driver Rating still won’t be affected by the race, Sportsmanship Rating updates are turned back on…

That might be interesting, as the race sends you to the “temple of speed”, at Italy’s Monza circuit — notorious for its first-turn which requires heavy braking from the highest speed, and a common location for lap one pile-ups that might tank your SR.

You’ll be driving a pretty ferocious car too, in the shape of the Lamborghini Diablo GT. This track-focused version of the Diablo saw the debut of the six-liter V12, and was stripped back to save weight — notably including the removal of the all-wheel drive system.

Thankfully you’ll be able to use Sports Soft tires for this five-lap race, but you’ll still be approaching those big braking zones at some considerable speed. You’ll also need to watch out for the false start check on the grid; hold the car on the brakes or handbrake until all five lights go out, or you’ll face a drop in power for the first few seconds.

Race B is something of a Gran Turismo staple now, featuring the GT3-inspired Gr.3 race car category at the fictional Autodrome Lago Maggiore circuit — in full GP course guise.

It’s a relatively simple, five-lap race, with players permitted to select any Gr.3 car of their choice. You’ll need Racing Medium tires for your chosen vehicle, but there’s an additional settings consideration this week.

As well as having access to the brake balance controller — allowing you to set front or rear bias for the brakes on the fly — you can tune your car’s damper compression and expansion (bound and rebound) settings before the race.

That might mean some different cars coming to the fore this week, and if you’re in need of some guidance on how best to approach it, check our forums for vehicle settings.

The same thing applies to Race C, with damper and brake settings available to you on the Gr.4 cars — with the rather varied drivetrain options available in this GT4-like category likely to result in some unusual-looking grids.

You’re going to need to tune not only for speed this week but tire life too. That’s because this 11-lap race around the Brands Hatch GP circuit requires the use of Racing Soft tires, and there’s a pretty high tire wear multiplier too.

It’s set at 6x this week, meaning your tires wear six times faster than usual and making it effectively a 66-lap race as far as your rubber is concerned. A relatively high 5x fuel multiplier will also affect car choices, as some Gr.4 cars are considerably more thirsty than others.

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 September 25.
