Your guide to Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races, w/c 5th December: Attack of the Clones

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 5th December: Attack of the Clones

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature the Toyota GR86 and Subarau BRZ at Alsace, Gr.3s at Dragon Trail and Gr.4s at Sardegna.

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races see us return to the standard format, with three Balance of Performance (BoP) races.

Road cars are the order of the day in Race A, with a return for Gr.3 and Gr.4 events in Races B and C respectively. The past two weeks have seen Race A dish out huge rewards to players but the gold rush is sadly over, as rewards return to normal.

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.
Damage has also been disabled in Race A this week, so players can drive as enthusiastically as they like…

RACE A

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 5th December: Attack of the Clones

Subaru and Toyota’s unique sports car collaboration bore the Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ back in 2012. Developed together as a cost-saving exercise, both cars focused on handling and fun over horsepower and grip.

This made them the antithesis to most modern car manufacturers’ obsession with big numbers.

2021’s final editions are presented to us for Race A, with both cars featuring a rorty 231bhp Subaru-derived flat-four boxer engine. Although the GR86 and BRZ share several common characteristics, they do have some subtle differences in suspension geometry, making the Toyota the slightly wilder option.

For Race A, however, either car will put a smile on your face.

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

Recommended car: Toyota GR86 RZ ’21 or Subaru BRZ S ’21 (Brand Central, 33,500 or 32,670 Credits or free rental))

Race B

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 5th December: Attack of the Clones

It’s off to Croatia and the coastal circuit Dragon Trail for Race B. Dragon Trail has been a perennial favourite since the inception of GT7’s Daily Races and this time we use its Seaside layout.

This Gr.3 race is a straight sprint affair including a rolling start and features the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 as our car of choice. Although this GT3 racer has fallen out of favour in real-world motorsport it can still do the business in GT7.

Another highly-recommended car is the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept ’18.

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

Recommended car: Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 ’13 (Brand Central, 450,000 Credits or free rental)

Race C

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 5th December: Attack of the Clones

Race C sees a return of one of Gr.4’s previously dominant cars – the Subaru WRX. And dominance is the keyword, as the car currently fills out most of the top 10 in the Global Rankings.

Sardegna isn’t the most popular of GT7’s tracks owing to its street circuit nature but it does feature some of the most scenic landscapes in the series – including a plethora of wind turbines.

Apt, given the Subaru blows away the competition.

With 2x fuel consumption and 7x tyre wear Race C requires a degree of pit strategy management. Medium and Soft tyre compounds also both need to be used during the race so careful consideration must be paid to which you start with.

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

Recommended car: Subaru WRX Gr.4 (Brand Central, 350,000 Credits or free rental)

Lap Time Challenge

Gran Turismo 7's Lap Time Challenge, 8th-22nd December: Raging Bull

The current Lap Time Challenge features the Red Bull X2019 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Do well here and you could walk away with 2,000,000 Credits. Nice.

A new Lap Time Challenge will become available on the 22nd of December at 7am GMT.

Recommended car: Red Bull X2019 25th Anniversary – Special Gran Turismo 25th Anniversary car
