GT Sport Daily Races: A Mini Adventure

Gran Turismo Sport 711 April 20, 2020 by

The outside world might be in all kinds of disarray, but GT Sport‘s Daily Race schedule continues unhindered. This week we’ve got three more races, which include a track we haven’t seen in the rotation for a very, very long time.

Races B and C are pretty standard fare, and a chance to hone your skills ahead of the impending official 2020 FIA Online Championship Season. The sprint race sees you head to Fuji — complete with Dunlop Chicane — with the game’s Gr.3 cars. It’s a simple affair, consisting of a four lap race in whatever Gr.3 car takes your fancy, on racing hard tires.

Meanwhile Race C heads to the SR graveyard of Tokyo Expressway Central Outer Loop. This ten-lap race uses Gr.4 cars, and features mandatory tire compounds. Drivers must use both the medium and hard compound of racing tires during the event, or far a 20s post-race penalty. There’ll be some strategy at play here, but it’s likely that a car that can preserve its medium tires the longest will win out. Which probably means the Megane Trophy.

It’s Race A where we see the return of a long-absent track. You’ll be heading to Blue Moon Bay Speedway, and not the tricorn oval variant but one of the post-launch Infield circuits. Players will simply pick a color for their MINI Cooper S ’05 (anyone that doesn’t pick Black-Eye Purple is, obviously, wrong), and head out for the four-lap race of Infield A. The grid start may complicate things, but there is no false start check this week.

These three races will run through to Monday, April 27, when another new set of three will replace them.
