Patience and lots of it. Sat there in the tow, waiting for the right moment to present itself. One rash move and both of you could end up in the fence and losing safety points. 
This week’s GT Sort Daily Races feature two tracks that are narrow, where overtaking is at a premium and where making one, clean, decisive move will pay dividends. 
Thanks to the safety rating system (SR), clean moves are encouraged, but on Kyoto Driving Park – Miyabi and Brand Hatch Grand Prix Circuit, you’ll have to time your attack to perfection in order to avoid a tricky outcome. 

Without further ado then, here’s what’s instore for the online ranked races within Gran Turismo Sport this week. 

GT Sport Daily Races 24th May 2021

Race A is a classic recipe. Kyoto Driving Park – Miyabi in the Mazda Roadster Touring Car. With everyone in the same N200 car and setups fixed, the one braking zone around this tight circuit into turn four is where all the action will happen. No doubt it will be a bun fight on the final of the eight laps. 

One of our favourite cars, this little race vehicle shows that power and outright speed aren’t needed for a fun race.

Race B uses one of our all-time favourite fictional race circuits in Gran Turismo folklore, Autodrome Lago Maggiore – GP. With no strategy involved in this one, it’s maximum attack around the fast and flowing venue for a scant four laps. You’ll need to get your elbows out for this one, down the inside into the giant banked right-hander a favourite overtaking place.

As is the norm, Race C is a longer affair, with a mandatory pitstop required. You can use any Gr.4 car for 13 laps around Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit, but woe betide anyone who gets half a wheel on the unforgiving grass that adorns the track limits – if so, you’ve got a one-way ticket to struggle street.
