GT Sport Daily Races: Traditions New and Old

Gran Turismo Sport 764 May 20, 2019 by

It’s a week for traditions in the Daily Races, as GT Sport goes back to its roots — and its origins.

Races B and C fill the position of the game’s own tradition-keepers. They both see players using the cars that formed the core of the game back at its original launch in October 2017, although both take in tracks added by updates.

You’ll be heading to Croatia, and Dragon Trail Gardens, for Race B. It’s a five-lap sprint race of the fictional circuit, set on the Croatia cost, using the Gr.4 cars. This one’s likely to be the home of the Huracan Gr.4, although other four- and all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive cars will also probably do well.

Monza plays host to Race C, with the faster Gr.3 cars. This will be a nine-lap endurance race, with hard and medium race tires available, along with a punishing 13x tire wear multiplier. The long straights will likely see the usual suspects — McLaren F1, Nissan GT-R, Toyota GR Supra — up front, at least through qualifying.

Race A provides an unusual trip back not to GT Sport‘s roots but to Gran Turismo’s. It’s a format we saw three weeks ago which proved rather popular, so it’s little surprise Polyphony Digital has brought it back. Players get to choose one from nine provided N300 cars, all from the “Gentleman’s Agreement” era of 276hp Japanese sports cars. With Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota and Subaru all represented, it’s like Gran Turismo 1 all over again — although the Tsukuba venue is a little more of a latecomer to the series.

All three races will run through to Monday, May 20.
