Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Tourist Trap

The next set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges is becoming available to players around the world, as midnight Thursday arrives in each local time zone, with five new challenges and rewards for completing them during the week.

Another one-week only event awaits in the new set, with a second Special Event based around the Audi TT. You can use any of the three TT road cars in the game, including the recently added 2009 TTS, and in any state of tune for a three-lap run around the high-speed Tokyo Expressway East Clockwise course. It’s worth 70,000cr for victory, which is a reasonable bit of cash.

This week’s pocket change event takes you to the Sunday Cup Classic at Laguna Seca. There’s very few limitations for this two-lap race which only requires a Road Car of any type and in any state of tune, and with 15,000cr on offer it’s probably not worth overthinking it; just grab something you enjoy and see how it behaves at the Corkscrew!

Another relatively low-paying event takes place at the Streets of Willow Springs in the Lightweight K Cup — and you’ll need to have at least started Bonus Menu Book 40 to see this event. Any vehicle which fits into the Kei category, with Comfort Soft tires and within a 400PP limit is eligible, and the five-lap race is worth 30,000cr.

You’ll need a Porsche vehicle, road or race, at 650PP or less for the Porsche Cup event at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya’s “No Chicane” layout, which returns from the final week of February’s Weekly Challenges. It’s a five-lap race, and it may get tricky near the end as one AI in particular suddenly gets a move on, but there’s 81,000cr for you if you win.

The final event this week is another that requires unlocking, and it can also be a bit of a mean one if the weather intervenes. You’ll need to have started Bonus Menu Book 42 to see the Gr.1 Prototype Series, with this week’s race taking you to Fuji International Speedway. There’s a 950PP limit and you’re required to fit Racing Tires, but otherwise the event is open to all cars. It features dynamic weather, so grab some Intermediates just in case; take it out of your 175,000cr winnings!

Completing any one event this week awards a parts-specific Six-Star Roulette Ticket, which may gift you any one of the “Ultimate” tuning parts for any vehicle. Finishing three events awards a 200,000cr ticket, while clearing the set will land you a 500,000cr ticket.

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. 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 26.
