European jaunt: GT Sport Daily Races, w/c 15th November 2021

Remember the days of European road trips? Those were the days. With a bit of luck and hard work, we’ll be returning to travel soon, and of course, there have been far more pressing issues to work on of late. 

But in this week’s GT Sport Daily Races, you’ll get to experience three events in three different European countries and soak up the different locations – reminiscing of a time when tourism didn’t entail a myriad of paperwork. 

Take part in the latest ranked online racing, week commencing 15th November 2021, and also enjoy a virtual road trip.  

GT Sport Daily Races 15th November 2021

First up on our tour of Europe is Italy, or more specifically Sardegna (Sardian to you and me).  

The track is, well, fine. More than a bit forgettable, apart from the wind turbines. But, thankfully, the Toyota S-FR isn’t. A fun little sports car that nearly made it to production, but sadly will forever remain a Gran Turismo pipe dream. 

Its rear-wheel-drive layout and slow speeds combine to deliver a fun race. Watch out – that first corner hairpin causes pandemonium on lap one.

Next up, Race B, and we’re off to Croatia for five laps around the Gardens variant of Dragon Trail. Another fictional race track set in a breathtakingly attractive real-world location. 

You’ll be in the rapid Gr.3 machinery, however, so you won’t have much time to soak in the Croatian coastline. 

Just five laps and no strategy will make qualifying more essential than ever, the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept ‘18 could be the weapon of choice here.

Last but not least, our European tour ends in Austria – once again, a breath-taking part of the world.  

As is always the case, Race C equates to strategy. Only one tyre is selectable, the Racing Hard, and consumption is relatively low, but the 12-lap distance will still mean your levels need to be monitored. 

Any Gr.4 car is available, and the Red Bull Ring always delivers brilliant races within GT Sport – buckle up, this one will be intense.
