X2019 Nations Cup

Trial Mountain – 14 laps

Last but not least, the X2019 Nations Cup event raises the stakes. Aimed at experienced players, you’ll need to complete Menu Book 49 and reach Collector Level 50 to enter. You’ll also need one of the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2019 fitted with racing tyres for a 14-lap race around Trial Mountain.

There’s also 8x tyre wear so you’ll need to make a pit stop. This is a tricky event but it’s worth the effort to get the 200,000 credit reward.

As for this week’s bonus rewards, you’ll get a six-star parts roulette ticket for completing one event, a 200,000 credit ticket for completing three, and a 750,000 credit ticket for conquering all five.

After skipping December, the next GT7 content update is expected to roll out in January. Polyphony has yet to announce a release date or new cars for update 1.42, but we know the Genesis Vision GT is coming to GT7 this month. The sleek 1,071-hp supercar concept will likely be part of the update, but we’ll have to wait until Polyphony announces the next GT7 update to find out more details.
