Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges: Viva Volvo

Fresh set Gran Turismo 7 Weekly challenges change into available to players as midnight strikes around the globe and consoles change the date to July 5.

Weekly Challenges are a brief, fastidiously curated list of 5 events which can be mostly drawn from existing World Circuits races, but may — as this week — also include a one-off special event created only for that week.

This is a one-make for the Volvo V40 T5 added in update 1.48 in May 2024, and in contrast to its first appearance in Weekly Challenges, you’ll be racing on tarmac — specifically, the Autodrome Lago Maggiore East track. It’s a four-lap blast in a four-cylinder (yes, the Japanese T5s had a four-cylinder engine) Volvo in any state of tune, with a prize of 85,000cr for victory.

There are a few relatively low-value races this week, starting with the Japanese 4WD Challenge 600 at Trial Mountain. You’ll need any road automotive or “professionally tuned” automotive from Japan with four-wheel drive (GT doesn’t differentiate between four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive) for this two-lap race price just 20,000cr. Don’t worry in regards to the “600” within the name, as that’s only a suggested Performance Point (PP) rating.

This is accompanied by an identical race within the European Clubman Cup 600 – again with the 600PP because the suggestion. This time you’ll need any European road automotive (any form of drivetrain) for a three-lap race across the Sardegna Road Track A, with 25,000cr to be won.

The prize money increases barely within the Historic Sports Car Masters race at Goodwood, where five laps are price 55,000cr. There are various restrictions, nevertheless, including a tough 580 PP limit. Here too, you’ll need a road automotive, but crucially just one from 1960 to 1989 inclusive. Also do not forget that it’s essential to have began the suitable Bonus Menu Book, 46, to see this race.

Only the most important winner of all of them stays, within the World Touring Car 800. Again, there's a tough 800PP limit for this race, which takes place on the Tokyo Expressway East Clockwise, and also you'll also must have race tires fitted to qualify. It's a 10-lap race, and rain can play a component, so be certain that you’ve gotten not less than Intermediate tires available – and be careful for prime tire wear. Victory is price a cool 200,000cr.

There are credit rewards to be won when you complete one and three challenges this week, price 100,000 cr and 200,000 cr respectively. Don't forget that these aren't directly deposited: you'll must redeem the tickets from the Gifts section of your garage to receive the cash. Complete all five events inside a seven-day window and also you'll receive a Six-Star Roulette ticket.

You must complete GT Cafe Menu Book 39 and watch the ultimate cinematic to access the Weekly Challenges. Events update at midnight local time on Thursday evenings/Friday mornings, so we expect the following set to go up on Friday, July twelfth morning.
