A guide to Gran Turismo 7’s launch-week Sport Mode Daily Races.

Sport Mode races available in Gran Turismo 7 w/c 7th March 2022 | Traxion

GT Sport will be missed, but Gran Turismo 7 has taken the reigns with more Daily Races in the Sport Mode. Here’s an overview of the first two.

That’s it. The last of our GT Sport Daily Races reports was last week. Don’t get emotional now, because it’s time for Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races. Rejoice!

Anyone familiar with GT Sport’s online mode will immediately feel right at home with the game’s first batch of Daily Races. There are two events and therefore two different car and track combinations.

A third event, Race C, will start on Monday 14th March 2022.

Gran Turismo 7 launch week Daily Races

Although there are a few more regulations to follow in Gran Turismo 7 Sport Mode races, the general overview remains the same: driver skill and safety ratings are used to roughly match players of the same ability in the same race.

One caveat though – it’s early days in Gran Turismo 7, so the track might be littered with a few more dead Honda Fits than usual to begin with…

We’re not entirely sure yet how often the Daily Races will update in GT7, but rest assured we will keep you informed as soon as Polyphony Digital release more details.

Race A

Gran Turismo™ 7, Toyota Aqua, High Speed Ring

Toyota’s compact hybrid packs a punch thanks to its battery situated beneath the back seats. Thanks to this, the car’s centre of gravity is more balanced than its competitors, so it handles well. But also thanks to the hybrid drivetrain and CVT gearbox, it sounds like a fridge freezer.

Coupled with some choice modifications and you have the Race A car of choice over and above the Fit and Demio. Tuning is essential, with brakes and suspension modifications a must, but keep it under 147bhp!

Recommended car: Toyota Aqua S ’11 (tuned)

Race B

Gran Turismo™ 7, Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 V-Spec II, Deep Forest Raceway

It may be a new Gran Turismo game, but some things never change. The venerable old Skyline GT-R is the car of choice for Race B, and when appropriately tuned this four-wheel-drive beast tames the dips and cambers of the reimagined Deep Forest Raceway.

It does face stiff competition from the Peugeot L500 HYbrid VGT 2017 though, which requires a bit of detuning to make the grade.

It’s Gran Turismo though, so settle for the Skyline. You know it makes sense.

Recommended car: Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R V-Spec II ’94 (tuned)
