GT Sport Daily Races: Racing Across Three Continents

Gran Turismo Sport 485 October 28, 2019 by

Following last week’s globe-trotting adventures in the GT Sport Daily Races, we’re off on our travels again this week. The three races take us to Japan, Germany and the USA, at various speeds.

Ticking the slow box this week is Race A. You’ll head to the Suzuka Circuit and the tiny East short course. Your steed for the week will be a Honda S800 convertible, which the game supplies for the purpose. There’s actually a significant power boost in the race’s BOP, of 172%, but since that only equates to 118hp, it’s not a lot to get excited about. Preservation of momentum will be key.

Race B heads to the self-proclaimed ‘Fastest Road in the West’, or the Big Willow layout at Willow Springs. It’s a Gr.4 free-for-all this week, so grab hold of your favorite road-based racer and hit the track.

For fans of longer-distance driving, Race C heads to Germany’s Nurburgring. Here you’ll be using whatever Gr.3 car you like for a two-lap race of the full 24hr circuit — that’s the Nordschleife and GP tracks joined together at their traditional first-last corner crossovers. Depending on your choice of car, fuel may provide some tactical advantage, as the 7x multiplier is enough to see some cars drain their tanks well before the end.

All three races will run through to Monday, November 4, when there’ll be another new set of three for the week.
