Travel from east to west in this week’s GT Sport Daily Races

Travel from east to west in this week’s GT Sport Daily Races

This week on the ranked online races within GT Sport, the playlist includes made varied locations, start with Japan in the east and ending with Sardinia in the west. 

In the east, we kick off with Suzuka International Racing Course for Race A, located south of Nagoya in central Japan and run by the curiously titled Mobilityland Corporation – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Honda. 

Our virtual trip across the globe – which is all we can hope for this year without a call from Interpol – then sees us land on the Adriatic coast for the Croatian-set Dragon Trail – Seaside II, followed by a trip to the Tyrrhenian Sea and the sunshine island of Sardinia. 

Hopefully, we can go back to the days of travel without restrictions in the near future, but for now, here’s the rundown of this week’s Gran Turismo travel-themed fun. 

GT Sport Daily Races 5th July 2021

Sadly, this is the East Course variant of Suzuka, but that’s okay because all you have available to drive are the relatively sedate N300 Nissans. The compact layout is better suited to the non-racing vehicles in the game. Watch out for that blind last corner with seemingly an infinite number of different lines to take. The last lap with be a real mess.

Race B is at the fictional track in a real location and one of the better Dragon Trail layouts. Any Gr.3 within your garage can be used – currently standing at over 40 if you own each one. No tyre wear or fuel management here, so this will be a quick race with close results.

The strategy-focussed Race C this week comes from the often-overlooked Sardegna Road Tack B II. Overlooked because it lacks any redeeming qualities. If it were a crisp flavour, it would be ready salted. Across eight laps, you better hope the tyre and fuel management livens things up a little.

Full details of each race are below, and the playlist will next reset on Monday 12th July 2021. Don’t forget that the second 2021 season calendar for GT Sport FIA events has been released and later this week, we expect a new car to be added.
