June 25, 2022



This week’s Gran Turismo 7 daily races include an Evo X rally at Sardinia, a Gr.3 at Suzuka and a Gr.4 race at Trial Mountain Reverse.

Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races have a bit more variety this week, with Race A featuring a return to Dirt racing with a four-lap race around the Sardinia Windmills layout.

Once again, all races are subject to strict Balance of Performance (BoP) rules, which means that the performance of all vehicles has been equalized to ensure tight races.

The first two weeks of daily GT7 races included races where players could tune their cars to their preferences, but those days are long gone, much to the chagrin of many GT7 players.

Your Guide to Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races, Featuring June 13: RallyX

Race B is a Gr.4 sprint event around the Reverse Trial Mountain setup, while Race C takes us back to the Suzuka Grand Prix Circuit for a more strategic endurance race.

Since the v1.15 update, Sport Mode also hosts bi-weekly Lap Time Challenge events. This time we have a time trial on the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans with Gr.1s. The car and track combination will change on June 23.

Additionally, starting the week beginning April 25, if you do not own the required Daily Races vehicle, GT7 allows players to rent them.

For GT7 starters, Sport mode – where you can find the daily groceries – unlocks after completing Café Menu Book Nine.

STROKE A

Gran Turismo 7, Sardinia - Windmills, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final '15-1

Dirt racing has rarely featured in daily GT7 racing, but today we have the chance to race Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evolution on the Sardinian Windmills track. This Mitsubishi – better known as the Evo X – is the tenth and final installment in the brand’s popular sports sedan model range.

The Lancer Evolution model was introduced in 1992 in Japan. Its maneuverability and four-wheel drive made it a favorite trail weapon, earning it huge popularity in the import scene. Subsequent iterations were designed and built as rally homologation specials, as Mitsubishi focused on its participation in the World Rally Championship. The car then became popular enough to be sold outside of Japan.

It was through the WRC that Mitsubishi battled with models like the Ford Escort Cosworth, Toyota Celica GT-Four and, even more famously, the Subaru Impreza WRX. Unfortunately, the Evo X was Mitsubishi’s last “road rally car”, and there have been no plans to reintroduce it since the Evo X was discontinued in 2016.

Sardinia is a very open rally stage, so be sure to use all the available road to tackle the bends. There are also a few bumps and jumps to negotiate, so these need to be hit straight to ensure a soft landing.

Race B

Gran Turismo 7, Trial Mountain Reverse, Nissan GT-R Gr.4 2-1

We’re heading to America for Race B and the fan-favorite fictional Trial Mountain circuit. This race uses the Reverse layout of the popular track – unfortunately absent from GT Sport – and for the first time in a long time does not singularly favor the Subaru WRX Gr.4.

This time we recommend the Nissan GT-R Gr.4 car. It’s still all-wheel drive, which again highlights the disparity present in this class between all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive.

Other highly rated vehicles for the B race include the Legend Cars dealer Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI ’93 and the Subaru WRX Gr.4.

Obviously…

Stroke C

Gran Turismo 7, Suzuka Circuit, Corvette C7 Gr.3-1

We return to the Suzuka Circuit for Race C and this one has a touch of strategy thanks to the use of Racing Medium compounds. With tire wear multiplied by 5 and fuel consumption multiplied by 6, this race will be a delicate exercise in balancing tire management and fuel management.

So what better car to use than the plucky 6.2-liter V8-powered Corvette C7? Be mistaken…

Used in the WeatherTech Sportscar Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 2014 and 2019, the Corvette C7.R GTE on which the Gr.3 car is based enjoyed huge success, taking victories at Le Mans, Sebring and Daytona, as well as decisive victories. several championships along the way.

Oddly enough, although the livery is based on the GTE car, the GT7 version appears to be based on the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R. The Callaway GT3 has had much less success internationally and is more commonly used in the German ADAC GT Masters series. Still, with all that normally aspirated growl, who’s complaining?

Corvette’s endurance racing credentials are undisputed, but managing the C7’s bulk through Suzuka’s high-load corners will prove a challenge. The only thing that would spoil the fun would be a pinch of wet weather. But it never rains at Suzuka, does it?

Other solid options are the BMW M6 GT3 Sprint Model ’16 or the Volkswagen Beetle Gr.3.

Lap time challenge

Gran Turismo 7, Gr.1, Mazda 787B, Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans

The new Lap Time Challenge is a simple time trial mode where you race against other players to set the best time on the leaderboard. As is the fashion lately, this event is subject to BoP conditions.

The second competition of the Lap Time Challenge in GT7 is timely since it takes place on the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans. The great endurance race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans – got underway in earnest last weekend (June 11-12, 2022), where Toyota snatched glory with its GR010 Hybrid racer – available for driving in GT7 since May.

Practically, the Lap Time Challenge is reserved for Gr.1 cars, many of which participated in the real Le Mans race. Cars like the rotary-engined Mazda 787B, the diesel-powered Peugeot 908 HDi FAP as well as the previous generation of LMP1 hybrid cars including the Porsche 919, Audi R18 and Toyota TS030.

For this one, however, we’d recommend picking up the Mazda 787B. It’s fast, but that rotary sound is just sublime. For easier time on the ears, why not try the Audi R18 ’16 low rev diesel. The Mazda costs 1,875,000 credits at the Legend Cars dealership, but can be rented for free.

This week’s Lap Time Challenge represents a great opportunity to try some very expensive cars for free, as well as experience motorsport nostalgia in the form of classic Le Mans race cars. The time trial also takes place in the dark, bringing a whole new atmospheric challenge to the proceedings.

A new Lap Time Challenge will begin on June 23.
