Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Ice Truckers

Players will be discovering a new set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges as the time reaches midnight on their consoles this evening, with five more races to tackle over the next seven days.

We’ve got more mixed-surface racing this week, as there’s a Special Event — created just for the week, and retiring to the vortex of lost races once this set of challenges is over — that features the Lake Louise course. You will need to fit Snow Tires (from either the Race Shop or Extreme section of the Tuning Shop) for this race, in which the Lamborghini Urus is the star car.

It’s a short, three-lap blast for the Urus, which you can tweak to any state of tune so long as the Snow Tires remain fitted, and it’s worth 50,000cr if you can take victory. We wouldn’t go overboard tuning the Urus, but if you happen to have one pre-tuned from a previous Weekly Challenge, go with it.

By far the least profitable race this week comes in the Japanese FR Challenge 450. You’ll need any front-engined, rear-wheel drive, Japanese Road Car for this two-lap race at Tokyo Expressway Central Clockwise, and it reward you with just 10,000cr. There isn’t a Performance Point cap — 450PP is a mere suggestion — so it’s not worth overthinking this one.

A similar thing applies to the American FR Challenge 550. As the name suggests, you’ll need an American, front-engined, rear-wheel drive Road Car for this race, at Trial Mountain’s Reverse layout; it’s a good excuse to whip out the recently added Chevrolet Chevelle SS. You’ll earn 56,000cr for victory in the four-lap race.

Turbochargers are mandatory for the next event, a five-lap affair around the full Suzuka Circuit in the Race of Turbo Sportscars. In fact you can use anything with a turbo, so long as it doesn’t exceed the 700PP limit — even race cars — and there’s a 70,000cr reward for finishing first. Given the chances of rain and the fact that you can’t actually change tires in this race (we don’t know why), we’d stick with a treaded Sports compound.

The final race this week is at the full Lago Maggiore circuit in the World Touring Car 800 event. Again, you can use anything so long as it fits under the 800PP cap, though Racing Tires are required. Virtually any Gr.3 car is entirely adequate for the event, which gives you 168,000cr if you finish the ten laps in the lead.

Rewards this week exclusively comprise credit tickets. Clearing one event earns you a 100,000cr ticket, with a 200,000cr ticket for finishing three events, and a 500,000cr ticket for getting through all five. Don’t forget that these aren’t straight credit rewards, so you’ll need to redeem the tickets from the Gifts section of your Garage.

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 May 10.
