Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: This is Preparation!

New set for this week Gran Turismo 7 Daily races starting today will feature free vehicle setup and customization for the primary time in an extended time.

The race where you have got to make use of the Suzuki Jimny is placed within the Race A slot. This means you won’t see any changes to your Driver Rating (DR) whatever the result – with DR updates disabled – so it gives you a very good opportunity to mess around with tuning and settings with none major consequences.

There are literally three restrictions: you have got to be using a Suzuki Jimny, it needs to be fitted with one in all three Comfort tyre classes, and you possibly can’t exceed the Performance Point (PP) limit of 420. Apart from these requirements, you possibly can do anything you need to your Jimny – including ‘extensive’ body modifications and engine swaps – except fit nitrous oxide.

Once you've built the automotive, you have got complete freedom over the vehicle's set-up, and tuning it to it’s a surprisingly difficult event. The Alsace Test Course, which resembles a rollercoaster, hosts an eight-lap race, and with a banked corner and an enormous drop-off and compression after a climbing section, your suspension can have to do loads of work.

One thing to look at out for here is the False Start Check. You should keep your automotive stationary – either use the brakes or the handbrake – between the last starting light coming on and all of the lights going out to start out the race. Any movement will lead to a brief power limit penalty, which is annoying at best and can cause anyone behind you to run into your slow-moving automotive at worst…

This week’s Race B is a typical Sport mode race, with the core Gr.3 esports cars going head-to-head on the Nurburgring GP circuit in a five-lap sprint.

Apart from the undeniable fact that the required tyres are, unusually, Racing Medium, there isn’t much else that you must know for the race. Simply pick your favourite Gr.3 automotive and head out for a fast jaunt.

This week's Race C gives you a rarer probability to make use of the Gr.1 cars, for a rather beastly race around Interlagos. That was after all the venue for the Manufacturers Cup final in a live event in Montreal over the weekend, but you'll be going a bit faster within the Le Mans prototype class (and similar).

Indeed, it's the LMP – or moderately LMPH – that you just'll need on this race, since the increased downforce and hybrid push-out on corner exit of the fashionable cars make all of the difference on the twisty Interlagos circuit. The leaderboard is now stuffed with Porsche 919s, and it's more likely to prove that within the race too.

It's a 15-lap race with a compulsory pit stop. That requires you to make at the very least one run through the pits, whether you're filling up on fuel or tires or not, otherwise you'll get a one-minute penalty at the top of the race. It doesn't matter once you stop, so long as it's between the top of lap one and the beginning of lap 15.

You don't must refill or refresh your tires, despite the x5 tire wear multiplier and the requirement for mid-sized racing tires, but you possibly can spend a couple of seconds (within the infinite pit lane) changing tires to achieve the advantage of a faster time on the ultimate lap of the race.

To access Daily Races, you could unlock Sport Mode by completing Menu Book 9 (“Championship: Tokyo Highway Parade”) within the single-player hub GT Cafe. A PlayStation Plus subscription is required to participate.
