Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Silvia Surfer

The next set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges is starting to arrive on consoles around the world, becoming available as your PlayStation’s clock ticks over at midnight into Friday morning.

Your new quintet of events for the next seven days consist of a Special Event created just for the week — vanishing into the ether again when the week ends (when they should really become new Bonus Menu Books) — as well as two events that you’ll need to unlock in order to access.

In terms of value, the week begins with an American Sunday Cup 600 race at the Daytona Tri-Oval. You’ll need any Road Car from a US manufacturer for this three-lap left-turn, and the “600” part of the name is merely an advisory for Performance Points to make it a fair fight. Or you can smurf it in a Tomahawk S, as it’s worth a mere 15,000cr.

One of the two unlockable races is next, in the Silvia Sisters event at Tokyo Expressway South Clockwise. It’s a relatively entertaining affair, requiring any of the specific cars from the Silvia family — including the 180SX and SilEighty — and since they’re amongst the most modifiable cars in the game it’s a pretty wild field. Don’t go spending a fortune though, as victory in this three-lap race gives just 45,000cr.

The Audi TT is back for a Special Event, this time heading to Kyoto Driving Park Yamagiwa. It’s another three-lap run, requiring only that you drive any of the three generations of Audi TT road car in the game with no tuning limitations. Take the win to earn 55,000cr.

You’ll need to unlock the Vision Gran Turismo Trophy event too if you haven’t already, and as the name suggests it’s limited to VGT cars only. It’s five laps around the full Grand Valley Highway-1 circuit, with any VGT up to an 850PP limit permitted, for an 80,000cr winner’s pot. Watch out for that Skoda at the front, as it’s pretty rapid.

Finally there’s a World Touring Car 700 event at the Autopolis circuit. You can use any car in the game for this race, so long as it fits under the 700PP cap and is using Racing Tires of any grade. That’s right around the top end of Gr.4, which neatly explains why your AI rivals are all in Gr.4 cars… Win the 10-lap race — and rain is possible here — to score 130,000cr.

This week’s rewards consist of two guaranteed credit tickets and something left more to chance. You’ll earn a 100,000cr ticket for clearing one event and a 200,000cr ticket for completing three — and these will need to be redeemed from the Gifts section of your garage. Finish all five and you’ll receive a Five-Star Roulette ticket, which could contain up to 1,000,000cr, but is more likely to be 100,000cr or a car up to 450,000cr value.

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 17.
