Your guide to Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races, w/c 28th November: Lambo Vision

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 28th November: Lambo Vision

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature the Lambo V12 VGT at Monza, Gr.4s at Fuji and Mazda Touring Cars at Road Atlanta.

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races hark back to the Gran Turismo World Series Nations Cup World Finals of 2019, inspired perhaps by this year’s unveiling of the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo car.

Two out of the three races are single-make events, which should promote close racing, with a Gr.4 race at Fuji International Speedway’s Short layout completing the line-up.

As an added bonus, Race A’s rewards have been increased to a mammoth 600 per cent. This dwarfs last week’s 400 per cent reward set in celebration of the Gran Turismo series’ 25th anniversary. Well worth giving this a go, then!

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 28th November: Lambo Vision

Race A features the Lamborghini Lambo V12 VGT around Italy’s ‘Temple of Speed’ Autodromo Nazionale Monza (or just Monza, for short).

The Lambo is a concept car developed especially for the Gran Turismo series and was unveiled to the public during the World Finals of the 2019 FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships in Monaco.

This follows Ferrari showcasing its own Vision Gran Turismo car – the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo – at this year’s event, witnessed on-site by Traxion.GG. Although the car never appeared in GT Sport, it did make its debut at the launch of Gran Turismo 7.

Based on Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 underpinnings, the Lambo V12 VGT’s V12 petrol engine and supercapacitor hybrid drivetrain give it over 800bhp. Thankfully, the car has four-wheel-drive too, helping tame all that power.

And Monza’s long straights are the perfect place to unleash all that raw power. However, with 4x tyre wear enabled you’ll have to use that power responsibly.

As an added caveat, the Lamborghini is only available to purchase via an invitation, so it’s just as well you can rent it for free.

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

Recommended car: Lamborghini Lambo V12 VGT – invitation only (Brand Central, 1,00,000 Credits or free rental))

Race B

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 28th November: Lambo Vision

We head to Japan and Fuji International Raceway’s Short configuration for Race B’s Gr.4 battle, and it’s a return to form for the Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI.

The Alfa has been imperious in Gr.4 races and the trend continues at Japan’s World Endurance Championship (WEC) venue.

Another solid alternative is the Subaru WRX Gr.4, which also enjoyed an early period of Gr.4 dominance in GT7’s Daily Races.

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 28th November: Lambo Vision

Race C uses GT7’s newest track – Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. The popular American venue hosts the Petit Le Mans, a 10-hour endurance race forming part of the IMSA SportsCar Championship.

This time, however, it plays host to a single-make Mazda event, with the Mazda Roadster Touring Car providing the driving thrills. The little Mazda MX-5 (or Miata in North America) has been used in spec-series motorsport for decades and is known for its excellent handling and economical running costs.

Traxion.GG‘s very own John Munro was the BARC Max5 Championship champion in 2016… I reckon this race will be right up his street!

With Hard Racing tyres specified and 3x fuel consumption to contend with, Race C will be all about eking out your fuel to last the distance. Road Atlanta’s long back straight will also provide plenty of slipstreaming opportunities – and a chance to save some petrol in the process.

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

Recommended car: Mazda Roadster Touring Car (Brand Central, 90,000 Credits or free rental)

Lap Time Challenge

The current Lap Time Challenge features the Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special ’98 at Willow Springs International Raceway’s Big Willow layout. Do well here and you could walk away with 2,000,000 Credits. Nice.

A new Lap Time Challenge will become available on the 5th of December at 7am GMT.

Recommended car: Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special ’98 (Legend Cars 1,700,000 Credits or free rental)
