Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: King Me

As Friday begins to arrive around the world, so players will be able to access a new set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges.

Weekly Challenges serve up a short, curated playlist of events for players to take on during a seven-day window. Mostly these are drawn from existing events within GT7’s World Circuits, but there’s the occasional unique “Special Event” that appears only as a part of the week. You’ll also have the incentive of bonus rewards for completing one, three, or all five events within the week’s window.

For the second successive week we have a one-off Special Event that features a vehicle not previously used for a themed challenge, although it’s a little more of a classic than the TT last week. It’s a three-lap race at the Daytona Road Course for the 1970 Plymouth Superbird.

Conveniently the car has just become available in the Legends Cars dealership as a “Special Pick”, so if you don’t already have one it’s a good time to buy. You can use the car in any state of tune — even an engine swap, if you feel like monstering the field — although we’d not be spending big money on it as the win bonus is a mere 60,000cr.

Lower down the prize value tree is the European Sunday Cup 500 at Sardegna Road Track B. Despite the name you don’t need a 500PP car for the event — any Road Car from Europe will do — and there’s 10,000cr for taking the win in this two-lap race.

There’s a little more money on offer in the Japanese Clubman Cup 550, at 40,000cr for victory in a three-lap race at Laguna Seca. Similarly you’re not limited to 550PP, but you will need a Road Car from Japan for the race.

You will have a performance point (PP) cap for the next event, which is a five-lap race around Suzuka Circuit in the “Race of Turbo Sportscars”. That’s not the only restriction; as the name suggests, you’re going to need a turbocharged vehicle. There’s 70,000cr on offer for first place.

This week’s final race will require unlocking to access if you haven’t already. It takes place at Fuji International Speedway as part of the Neo-Classic Competition, so you’ll need to have at least started Bonus Menu Book 43 — needing a Collector Level of 33 — to make it available.

It’s a ten-lap race around the circuit for cars limited to 800PP, from between 1980 and 1999, and using racing tires of any kind. We’d recommend getting hold of wet-weather options if you want the 160,000cr first-place reward.

There’s a guaranteed 800,000cr available for clearing the list this week. That comes by way of a 100,000cr ticket for finishing one event, a 200,000cr ticket for clearing three, and a cool 500,000cr ticket if you sweep the board.

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 29.
