Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Audi Duty Time

Having moved into their new Friday slot, the new set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges are becoming available around the world as midnight advances westward.

Comprising a short, curated playlist of events, Weekly Challenges are an opportunity for players to explore different races from around GT7’s World Circuits events — with the occasional unique event created just for the week. There’s an incentive too, with bonus rewards for completing one, three, or all five events within the week’s window.

This week’s set of five include one of the one-week-only Special Events, featuring some of the new content added in Update 1.43 a couple of weeks back. Don’t worry, it’s not a crawl in the Renault 4 again, but an ode to the Audi TT.

You can select any of the three generations of the compact sports car now available in GT7 for this race, which takes the form of a three-lap blast around the Nurburgring Sprint circuit. There’s no other restrictions, so you can even take an engine-swapped model for the race — which is worth 50,000cr for the win.

The lowest-value race this week comes by way of the Japanese 4WD Challenge 600 at Mount Panorama. It’s a two-lap race of the tricky circuit, and you can use any four-wheel drive Road Car or “Professionally Tuned” vehicle (which would just be the NISMO 400R in the latter case) from Japan. There’s no PP limit, but given the 20,000cr first prize we wouldn’t sink too much money into over-tuning.

There’s a little more money in the Sunday Cup Classic race at Tsukuba, with 25,000cr up for grabs for a short, three-lap race. You don’t actually need a classic car for this, as any Road Car will qualify; with no PP limit, there’s no need to overthink it either.

It’s a similar state of affairs in race four, which heads to Trial Mountain for the American Clubman Cup 700. Again, despite the name, there’s no PP cap and you only need a Road Car from the USA for this five-lap race which awards 90,000cr.

Your final race for the week is a long run in the World Touring Car 800 event and, unlike the others, this does have a hard limit of 800PP. Any car running Racing Tires is eligible for the 20-lap — yes, 20-lap — race at High Speed Ring, and you’re going to want to make sure that you have the wet-weather tire options available to you. There’s 160,000cr for taking victory in this race which is as much about tactics as pace.

Bonus rewards for this week are on the low side. Completing one event gifts you a 100,000cr ticket, and finishing three awards a 200,000cr ticket. Clearing all five is worth a standard Five-Star Roulette Ticket, which comes with some pretty variable potential prizes.

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. Following a recent shift in timings, the events update at midnight local time on Thursday evenings/Friday mornings, so we’d expect the next set on the morning of Friday March 22.
