Variety is the spice of life: GT Sport Daily Races, w/c 29th November 2021

Nothing showcases the delightfully diverse line-up of racing challenges the Gran Turismo series of games can deliver than this week’s selection of ranked online races.

From the bambino in its native country to a classic F1-style race around Interlagos, with a street circuit thrown in-between, trying each one will provide you with a taste of the variety on offer.

This wide scope of the included vehicles is something that Gran Turismo 7 looks set to build upon, but for now, let’s hope these events tie you over.

Gran Turismo Sport Daily Races 29th November 2021

First up, the small version of Autodrome Lago Maggiore, a factional Italian venue, and the Fiat 500. Not the classic 1950s model, but the 00s Panda-based retro rebirth, in the powerful 1.2 8V Lounge specification.

Did I say ‘powerful’? I meant slower than a hungover snail. Still, speed isn’t everything, and with everyone on the grid in the same car around a tight circuit, this could be good fun.

Race B is actually powerful. By contrast. The Gr.3 category of vehicles are allowed, and any particular one you have in your garage too. There is a catch, however.

The venue is Tokyo Expressway – East Inner Loop, which is a narrow street circuit. You know that infamous GT3 pileup at Macau a few years ago? Expect a replication of that if the drivers in your lobby aren’t particularly au fait with the layout.

The longer event is this week, Race C, is a real arm turner. The Gran Turismo F1500T-A is a fictionalised 1980s Formula 1 car, and you’ll need big biceps to wrestle it around 14 laps of Interlagos.

The timing of your gear changes is crucial in this event, as is keeping it on the road. If the car and track combination wasn’t enough of a challenge already, the 8x tyre wear certainly will be!
