Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, wc 19th June - mitigating wear

A simple third race means it’s mostly all flat-out driving this week, with only a strange track choice for Race A providing a leftfield challenge within this week’s Gran Turismo 7 Sport Mode Daily Races.

Gran Turismo 7 Sport Mode Daily Races 29th June 2023

You can find GT7’s Daily Races in the game’s Sport Mode, offering online ranked racing where you will be placed within events based on your previous performances.

Race A

BMW Z8 Gran Turismo 7

Of all the tracks (or, in this case, track layouts) that were new for Gran Turismo 7, this has to be the strangest. It’s like something made with 6’s track editor, not a Polyphony Digital classic. The hill seems too steep and a bit too ‘out there’ to be grounded in reality.

Still, despite its short length, it’s that very incline that provides the challenge here. Get that compression wrong on the way down, or the wrong gear at the peak, and you’ll be in strife.

The BMW Z8 is a honey, although not the easiest of vehicles to hustle. Mind you, don a PSVR2 and marvel at those indicator stalks…

Recommended car: BMW Z8 ’01 (Brand Central, 300,000 Credits or free rental)

Race B

Renault GR3 RS01 GT3 Gran Turismo 7

In light of the recent Spanish Grand Prix, there ‘no chicane’ layout of Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is used for Race B.

Except, instead of single-seaters (the Super Formula would have been fun here, no?), it’s the good-old Gr.3 category.

Around here, anything with the engine in the middle seems to be the quickest way – provided you can hold on to them.

That means the Renault R.S.01, Ferrari 458 or Peugeot RCZ are quick enough to win. At the time of writing, a Genesis is the quickest in the world, which undoes the theory somewhat. But, we think if you are a mere mortal, mid-engine is the way to go, and we’re plumping for the Renault as we’re pretty sure we’ve never done that before.

Recommended car: Renault R.S.01 GT3 ’16 (Brand Central, 450,000 Credits or free rental)

Race C

Gran Turismo 7 Honda NSX GR2

No dynamic weather or even crazy pitstop challenges seemingly for Race C this week. Although, you’ll still need your wits about you as the Gr.2/Suzuka combination is still wicked.

A narrow track, quick cars with high downforce equals a small margin for errors.

Everyone will be on the Racing Soft, but the tyre wear isn’t crazy. It’s up to you if you’d like to pit for new rubber, but a no-stop may be the way to go if you can manage the wear. As is so often the case for Gr.2, the 2016 Nissan is the car of choice mid-engine Honda is ‘the go’ here, due to its nimbleness through the first sector.

Recommended car: Honda NSX Concept-GT ’16 (Brand Central, 800,000 Credits or free rental)
