GT Sport Time Trials: Bean There, Done That

Gran Turismo Sport 435 April 8, 2021 by

There’s a new set of Gran Turismo Sport Time Trial events ready for the next two weeks, and they’re taking players well outside their usual comfort zones.

The non-tuning event for the fortnight whisks you across to the fictional Colorado Springs circuit which, as GT Sport fans will already know, is an off-road course. One of three dirt tracks in the game, Colorado Springs sees players running through all the traditional sights of a rally stage, but on a looped course.

Naturally the vehicle choice for this week is any of the Gr.B race cars. While broadly named for the legendary “Group B” rally racers of the mid-1980s, GT Sport‘s Gr.B cars are more like high performance rallycross machines in sports car bodies — although the Audi quattro Pikes Peak is more like the Group B of old. You can choose from any car in the Gr.B ranks for this time trial.

You’re limited to a single car for the other event, but with total free rein on settings there’s a lot of variety possible. It’s a rather unusual choice of both car and circuit though, as you’ll be taking the Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 Shifter to the BB Raceway circuit. Although not often referenced in the game, “BB” is short for “Broad Bean”, and the track — which looks like it’s set on the outside of the final corner at Tokyo Expressway East — certainly resembles said legume.

Even as standard, the Shifter Kart can take on this odd track at full throttle, so there’ll need to be some set-up genius at play to extract more speed from the machine!

GT Sport‘s Time Trial mode is a global competition, ranking your best time against all players worldwide, rather than just those in your region as with other Sport Mode events. This time trial will run through to April 22, when further events will replace it.
