Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Money, Money, Money

With Wednesday midnight beginning to loop around the globe, the next set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges is becoming available to players as the clock ticks over to Thursday in each console’s time zone.

Weekly Challenges give players a short playlist to tackle in each seven-day period, mainly drawn from existing races within the World Circuits section of the game but occasionally — as with this week — including a special event created just for the week. There’s bonus prizes for completing them with a third-place finish or better during the week, and this week that’s all in the form of in-game spending money.

As noted above, there’s a Special Event up in this week’s quintet of events, starring the Tesla Model 3 Performance. You can use the car in any state of tune (okay, that’s largely about tires) for the three-lap run around the short Nurburgring Sprint course, with a 45,000cr reward for the win.

There’s no truly low-value race this week, with the Lightweight K Cup event at Autodromo Lago Maggiore East End Reverse the lowest at 35,000cr for victory. Note that you’ll need to have at least started the relevant menu, Bonus Menu Book 40, to see the race.

As the name suggests, you’ll need any car that fits in the Keijidosha class — Daihatsu’s Copen, Honda’s Beat and S660, or the Suzuki Cappuccino and Jimny — for the seven-lap race, but you’re also limited to 400PP and must use Comfort Soft tires.

One final European race for the week takes you to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, on the layout which skips the final chicane. As it’s a Porsche Cup race you’ll be unsurprised to learn that you’ll need a Porsche for the five-lap race, with a 650PP limit. First place is worth 81,000cr.

The USA hosts both of the remaining races, with the first an open, three-lap sprint around Road Atlanta for road cars from the nation in the American Sunday Cup 600. You’ll score 40,000cr for taking the win.

Finally there’s the World Touring Car 800 event from Watkins Glen. This is a ten-lap affair on the Long Course, for any car at up to 800PP and equipped with any type of racing tire, with 200,000cr on the table for victory.

It’s pure cash this week for the bonus rewards, with a 100,000cr ticket for completing one event, a 200,000cr ticket for passing three, and 500,000cr for clearing all five. With the relatively high value prizes from the races too, that means a potential 1.4m credits for the week’s work.

You’ll need to have completed GT Cafe Menu Book 39 and watched the ending movie in order to have access to the Weekly Challenges. While they have so far updated at midnight local time on Wednesday evenings/Thursday mornings, Polyphony Digital has announced that the next set will not appear until the morning of Friday March 8.
