Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 18th July: Porsche performance

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature a classic Porsche and some of the most balanced Gr.4 racing yet.

More ranked online races, aka Daily Races, are now live within Gran Turismo 7 for the next seven days, and it’s a suit of Balance of Performance-reliant events, mixing road cars and racing cars.

As ever, these are accessed within the game’s Sport Mode and pace you into fixed-regulation races against similarly skilled racers based on your Driver Rating (DR) and Sportsmanship Rating (SR). Although, it must be said that Race A will not affect your ratings either up or down this week.

Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 18th July

Jump in, have some clean and fun races and see what the line-up has in store below.

RACE A

Gran Turismo 7 Porsche 911 GT3 (996) '01

A recent variation on one of our favourite fictional Gran Turismo tracks, the East End layout of Autodrome Lago Maggiore adds in a new pit area and a tight hairpin. You may remember it from one of the Licence tests, with a Supra.

A small track, the seven-lap race doesn’t feature many easy overtaking places, so a quick qualifying time is essential to a strong result.

The 993-generation Porsche you’re driving has strong brakes and delightful chassis control for a road-going car that is over 20 years old, too.

Mandatory car: Porsche 911 GT3 (996) ’01 – (Brand Central, 155,400 Credits or free rental)

Race B

Gran Turismo 7 Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept '18

Gr.3 cars are next, and this – plus Race C – will affect your rankings. The forgettable Sardegna Road Track A is the venue, which is a shame. Still, Gr.3 cars are sweet.

Thanks to the BoP working better in this category than Gr.4, you can select any number of vehicles and be competitive.

Either of the Fords, Mustang or GT LM Race Car Spec II should do the trick, alongside the Genesis X GR3 or the recently added SUZUKI VGT racing version. But, to be on the safe side, plump for the old-favourite Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept.

Recommended car: Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept ’18 (Brand Central 450,000 Credits or free rental)

Race C

Gran Turismo 7 Nissan GT-R Gr.4

It’s time for a Gr.4 race, and we all know what that means – either a Subaru or a Mazda. All-wheel-drive for the win when it comes to Gran Turismo 7‘s BoP for this category.

Except, not so fast…

You see, the venue is the treacherous Nürburgring Nordschleife, and its variety of corners and mix of long straights means several cars are in the mix for our recommendation this week.#The Jaguar F-Type, Dodge Viper and Honda NSX are all cars that can net you the victory here. Be brave, go Dodge. Or, be a bit dull, and select the safe and secure Nissan GT-R. The choice is yours.

Recommended car: Nissan GT-R Gr.4 (Brand Central 350,000 Credits or free rental)

Lap Time Challenge

Gran Turismo™ 7, Lap Time Challenge

The current Lap Time Challenge takes place at the Trial Mountain Circuit using the Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition (FK8) ’20.

A new Lap Time Challenge will begin on the 4th of August.

Recommended car: Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition (FK8) ’20 (Brand Central, 55,000 Credits)
