Your guide to Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races, w/c 12th December: A Mini Adventure

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 12th December: A Mini Adventure

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature the classic Mini Cooper S at Goodwood, Gr.4s at Kyoto Driving Park and Gr.1s at Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans.

The Christmassy menu music is here and so are this week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races. This week, we get to flex our tuning muscles in Race A; with Races B and C devoted to Gr.4 and Gr.1 races respectively.

Race A sees us visit the home of the annual Goodwood Revival meeting for historic racing cars with a 1965 Mini Cooper ‘S’, before heading to Kyoto Driving Park for a Gr.4 battle.

The Daily Races schedule is then finished off nicely with Gr.1s at the Circuit de la Sarthe, home of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

As of the 30th of May, Race A’s performance will not affect players’ Driver Rating (DR) and Sportsmanship Rating (SR), so feel free to race as hard as you like.

RACE A

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 12th December: A Mini Adventure

Race A is a Mini adventure. This single-make race for the 1965 Mini-Cooper ‘S’ takes place at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit near Chichester, close to the South coast of England.

Goodwood began life as an RAF base during World War 2. Lands for the airfield – known as RAF Westhampnett – were donated to the war effort by the ninth Duke of Richmond, Freddie March.

The Duke was a motorsport enthusiast and aircraft engineer, so when hostilities ended he helped form the track we know today by using the airfield’s perimeter roads. The site is still used for air traffic today under the Goodwood Aerodrome moniker.

The Mini can be tuned and have its set-up adjusted as long as its Performance Points (PP) value sits below 350PP. We recommend tuning the little Mini up as much as possible, focusing on suspension and brakes. If you go over 350PP, use ballast and the power restrictor to bring it down again.

In terms of set-up, lower the Mini’s ride height as much as possible and increase negative camber values slightly to improve grip through Goodwood’s high-speed sweeps. Our front-wheel-drive set-up guide will hopefully give you a few more pointers.

Recommended car: Mini-Cooper ‘S’ ’65 (Used Cars dealership, 38,000 Credits or free rental))

Race B

We head to Kyoto Driving Park’s Yamagiwa+Miyabi Reverse circuit. This enormous 4.2-mile layout has 20 corners – it’s a test of memory and endurance. This fictional location features multiple configurations and first appeared in 2017’s GT Sport.

Being a Gr.4 race, naturally, the Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI ’93 is the cream of the crop. The Alfa has been the standout car in the Gr.4 pack over the last few months in a category generally dominated by four-wheel-drive cars.

Race B uses the Mid-speed (M) BoP format.

Recommended car: Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI ’93 (Legend Cars, 800,000 Credits or free rental)

Race C

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 12th December: A Mini Adventure

Race C revives the Gr.1 cars as we head to their home ground at the 24 Hours of Le Mans’ Circuit de la Sarthe track.

The Gr.1 category features some legendary Le Mans cars like the Nissan R92CP, Porsche 919 Hybrid and Audi R18. However, an old classic is our car of choice for the French venue.

The Mazda 787B is a high-revving, rotary-engined sensation which won the 1991 edition of the race, defeating the might of the TWR Jaguar and the Sauber-Mercedes teams along the way.

With 7x fuel consumption and 4x tyre wear enabled, pit-stop strategy will be crucial. Two stints on Racing Medium tyres will see you through to the end, however, and there’s no requirement for an alternate compound.

With Gr.1 cars being notoriously expensive, Race C is the ideal time to try out a few of your favourites thanks to GT7’s car renting mechanic, introduced in the 25th of April update.

Race C uses the High-speed (H) BoP format.

Recommended car: Mazda 787B ’91 (Legend Cars, 1,875,000 Credits or free rental)
