One of the best new features in Gran Turismo 7 is Polyphony’s impressive dynamic weather system. This means a race can start in dry sunny conditions and end in the rain. GT7’s rain effects are not just visual, either. Like in real life, wet weather affects grip levels and water forms in different sections of the track. When it stops raining, dry lines form on the track. There is a catch, though: not all circuits have rain effects. With that in mind, which tracks have rain in Gran Turismo 7?

Which tracks have rain in Gran Turismo 7?

In GT Sport, Red Bull Ring was the only track that supported wet weather. This has increased to 11 in GT7.

With less grip, racing in the rain in GT7 is very challenging

We’re surprised not to see the UK’s Goodwood Motor Circuit and Brands Hatch make the list. While 11 tracks in GT7 have rain, this still leaves 23 tracks without wet weather. Polyphony is working on updates for GT7, however, so rain could be added to more tracks in the future.

As well as rain, not every track in GT7 has 24-hour day cycles, as this is only available for circuits that host 24-hour endurance races in real life like the Nurburgring. Every track has day-to-night transitions and dynamic clouds, however.

Impressively, GT7’s advanced weather system simulates cloud formations, location-specific temperatures, humidity and air pressures. Likewise, the temperature of the track is affected by the time of day.

How to get rain

If you want to race in the wet on a supported track, choose Select Conditions after selecting a track. This will bring up the time of day options.
