Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Spring Forward

Another fresh set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges is becoming available to players as their local time zones tick over into Friday morning, bringing five more events and bonus rewards for completing them over the next seven days.

This week’s five races actually include two that have been in the rotation quite recently, although the additional vehicles in the 1.44 update give some new options for players (and the AI opponents). There’s also a one-week only Special Event which, for the second week in a row, takes you off-roading.

You’ll be a little down on power compared to the Lamborghini Urus event last week though, as you’ll be racing the dinky Renault 4 for two laps of the Colorado Springs Lake circuit. There’s no limitations on the state of tune, other than the requirement to equip dirt tires, but with just 32,000cr for victory we wouldn’t recommend investing too much into your car.

The lowest-income race this week sends you to Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps for a two-lap race in the European Sunday Cup 500. Although as it’s at the 24h version of the course, maybe it should be a 1.9-lap race… Either way, you’ll need a Road Car from Europe in any state of tune, and there’s 20,000cr for the win.

Dragon Trail Gardens hosts a race too, with a five-lap run in the Nissan GT-R Cup. This event recently expanded its vehicle eligibility to include the classic 1970 and 1973 Skyline GT-R models, but whichever car you choose you’ll be limited to 700PP. There’s 50,000cr for victory.

That brings us on to the first of this week’s repeats, as we take a trip back to Circuit de Sainte-Croix B in the Schwarzwald League. The recently added Audi R8 V10 plus is eligible for this race, which only requires German cars at 700PP or less. However, as the four-lap race is only worth 80,000cr for winning, it may not be worth buying one at 300,000cr just for the event.

Finally there’s a repeat of the World Touring Car 900 race — for which you’ll need to have at least started Bonus Menu Book 48 to see the event — at the full Autopolis course. It’s a ten-lap race for any vehicle up to 900PP, with the AI field mainly consisting of Gr.2 cars. That’d make the new Toyota GT-One a good fit if you already have one and can manage the high tire wear and fuel consumption for the 150,000cr first prize.

This week’s completion rewards include two fixed-value tickets at 100,000cr and 200,000cr for completing one and three events respectively. Finishing all five awards a Five-Star Roulette Ticket, which has a varying reward that could conceivably include 1m credits but is far more likely to result in 100,000cr or a car worth up to 450,000cr.

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 April 12.
