An unlikely combination: GT Sport Daily Races, w/c 27th September 2021

An unlikely combination: GT Sport Daily Races, w/c 27th September 2021

Of all the vehicles available within GT Sport to take around Mount Panorama, a Toyota pick-up would be the bottom of my list. 

It isn’t even a true Ford F-150 Raptor rival either, so the TRD Pro Tundra has upgraded suspension and tyres designed primarily for off-road, not track, use. 

But, here we are, a field of 12 dual-cab, ladder chassis, workhorses making their way around Bathurst’s famed venue and in a weird way, it’s this variety that makes Gran Turismo something so unique. 

Here’s the online GT Sport Daily Race menu for the week commencing 27th September 2021. 

GT Sport Daily Races, 27th September 2021

Race A is the one that features the Tundras, and to save the car’s blushes, it has been tuned, feeling significantly sprightlier than the standard effort straight from the Brand Central.

It’s also on slick racing-compound tyres too, so in the end, this isn’t as treacherous as I first imagined. But, with such a big car and such a narrow track, the racing features a lot of contact. One to avoid if you’re after a clean race bonus…

Onto more regular proceedings for the second event available for ranked online racing. Any Gr,4 car that you may own and the short East Course version of Suzuka. 

This layout is known for its touring car racing and features the switchback lefts and rights near the start of the full-length Suzuka layout. This effectively means there isn’t a clear overtaking zone so qualifying is crucial.

The final race, always the longer event with some strategy involved, is at the Fuji International Speedway during the evening. The tyre wear is significant and you must use both the soft and medium compound rubber at some point in the race. 

Do you start on the medium and charge at the end on the soft, or aim for a great start with the soft before using the medium later on? The choice is yours.
