The bi-weekly Sport Mode Lap Time Challenge in Gran Turismo 7 has been updated, moving away from the Ayrton Senna-themed affair and onto American road car royalty.

The current generation Chevrolet Corvette, the C8, is mid-engined, however, the sports car has a front-engine lineage that dates back to the C1 in 1953.

The C7 was the last to place the V8 small block ahead of the driver, and the ZR1 was the ultimate interpretation of this layout. 754bhp, seven-speed manual (or eight-speed automatic) transmission, rear-wheel drive and sub-three seconds from 0-60mph.

Where better to drive this vehicle than Watkins Glen International, New York’s venue added to the game in June?

It’s the Short Course layout, which means ‘The Boot’ extension is absent and record lap times are expected to be in the 1:12 region.

The car can be wayward, so be sure to be smooth with your inputs. Sudden movements or accelerator usage will result in a probably spin.

Competing against other players to set the fastest time on the leaderboard, setting a lap within three per cent of the fastest time nets players 2,000,000 credits.

If you aren’t quite quick enough for that then lapping within five per cent gains you 1,000,000 credits, while a time inside 10 per cent of the fastest results in a 250,000 credit payout.

For Gran Turismo 7 newbies, the Sport mode – where you can find the Daily Races and Lap Time Challenge – unlocks after completing Café Menu Book nine.
