As we wait for Polyphony to announce January’s update, 2024's second set of Gran Turismo 7 Weekly Challenges is live. As always, there are five new events to tackle across different locations, car class restrictions, and rewards.
This week brings another Special Event, this time starring a thoroughbred track racer. Here's what you can expect in the GT7 Weekly Challenges starting 11 January.
GT7 Weekly Challenges 14 December
Introduced in the Spec II update, GT7’s Weekly Challenges update at midnight local time on Wednesday evenings or Thursday mornings depending on your time zone. You need to have completed GT Cafe Menu Book 39 and watched the ending movie to access them.
This week’s GT7 Weekly Challenges start on 11 January at midnight local time and end on 18 January at the same time.
Japanese FF Challenge 450
Suzuka Circuit East Course – 3 laps
The first challenge focuses on front-wheel-drive Japanese sports cars in a casual three-lap race around Suzuka with eight cars on the grid. You’ll need a FWD Japanese car but there’s no performance restriction, despite the suggested 450 PP. Payouts are low for this entry-level event, awarding 7,000 credits for victory.
American Sunday Cup 600
Blue Moon Bay Speedway – 3 laps
Next, we’re heading to Blue Moon Bay Speedway for an American-themed three-lap race at Blue Moon Bay Speedway. The only restriction is that your car needs to be American with a suggested 600 PP rating.
This limit isn’t mandatory, so you can enter any American auto you like. It’s a modest cash prize though, with 15,000 credits for finishing in pole position.
Special Event – Radical SR3 SL – One Make
Deep Forest Raceway – 5 laps
There’s another Special Event this week, this time pitting you in the Radical SR3 SL thoroughbred track car. This five-lap race takes place at Deep Forest Raceway and you can win up to 75,000 credits.
Nurburgring Nordschleife – 1 lap
The next race sees you tackle the harrowing Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit in a 16-car race for one lap. You’ll need a German car for this event with a PP of 700 or less to keep the grid evenly matched. Take the victory and you’ll win 64,000 credits.
World Touring Car 900
Trial Mountain – 10 laps
The final World Touring Car 900 ramps up the difficulty considerably. Not only do you need a car rated 900 PP or less, but high fuel consumption (9x) and tyre wear (13x) mean you’ll need to schedule a pit stop if you want to take home the 160,000-credit first-place prize. You'll also need to tick off GT Cafe Menu Book 48 before you can enter this event.
Bonus rewards are less lucrative than last week. Completing one event earns you a 100,000 credit ticket, while completing three wins you a 200,000 credit ticket. Complete all five for a five-star roulette ticket. Each prize can be redeemed in the gifts section of your garage.
Looking ahead, GT7's next content update is expected to arrive later this month, but we’re still waiting for confirmation from Polyphony. All we know so far is that the Genesis Vision GT concept is set to arrive this month, presumably part of the January update.
During the CES 2024 technology event in Las Vegas, Sony Honda Mobility also confirmed that the sleek Afeela EV is heading to GT7 sometime this year.
