GT Sport Daily Races: French Flair at Goodwood, and Racing Antipodes

Gran Turismo Sport 590 October 21, 2019 by

There’s a bit of a globe-trotting theme to this week’s GT Sport Daily Races, as we take in real race tracks — all with F1 history — across the globe.

Race A takes us to the United Kingdom, and the old F1 track at Goodwood. The Goodwood Motor Circuit hosted non-championship F1 races back in the day, and closed its doors in 1966. It’s part of modern car culture after it was revived for historic race events and track days in 1998. You’ll be racing a one-make race in the Renault Sport Clio V6, a mid-engined hot hatch.

Meanwhile Races B and C find themselves almost literally at opposite sides of the planet. The quicker of the two will be Race B, which uses the Gr.3 race cars at the Suzuka Circuit. It’s a straight four-lap race on racing hard tires, so just pick your favorite Gr.3 and go nuts.

If you tunnel straight down through the Earth from Suzuka, you’ll pop out just 800 miles from Race C’s location at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace — also known as Interlagos. This will be an 11-lap endurance race, featuring the production-based Gr.4 race cars. Even with the 11x tire wear multiplier, it’s not likely you’ll need to hit the pits on the race hard tires — unless you pick one of the FWD or 4WD cars — but with the new, shorter pit stops it may be an advantageous strategy to do so.

All three races will run through to Monday, October 28, when there’ll be another new set of three for the week.
