It’s Rise of the Valkyries in this week’s GT Sport Daily Races

Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition in GT Sport

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is set to be one of the all-time greatest production road cars. Still in development, and behind schedule, the low-slung hypercar has an F1-style seating position, a 6.5-litre V12 naturally aspirated engine created by Cosworth that revs to 10,500rpm alongside hybrid assistance and a no-compromise design – the brainchild of the chief technical officer at Red Bull Racing, Adrian Newey.

But, before the Valkyrie concept was born, Mr Newey worked on another prototype with a high-revving engine and sleek aerodynamic profile. It was called the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2010 Prototype and it was for Gran Turismo 5.

This was then updated in 2011, 2014 and then in 2019 for GT Sport. You can drive the latter – with its 3-litre engine, 804hp and 18,000rpm redline within the latest online ranked Daily Races.

For now, it remains as close as you can get to driving a Valkyrie.

Race A also features a rev-happy car, the Honda S2000. At one time, this was once the record holder for the most powerful naturally aspirated engine per litre and now the values of these kooky Honda roadsters are starting to increase.

I’m kicking myself I didn’t buy one when they were under £5,000…

Oh well, at least I can drive one in Gran Turismo.

Race B is a simple affair. Five laps of the Autódromo de Interlagos in Brazil, any Gr.3 of your choice and no strategy involved. Just drive as fast as you possibly can on each lap and hopefully take away a podium. Sounds like a plan?

The final event this week, Race C, puts the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 Competition to good use on one of the fastest tracks in the game – Circuit de las Sarthe, or Le Mans to you and me. You’ll have to balance the insane downforce levels and straight-line speed with a little caution, however, as 5x tyre wear is switched on and the rubber in use is the medium compound.
