As we head into 2022, we have one last trio of Gran Turismo Sport Daily Races for 2021.

There are three races as always, all taking place at Japanese circuits.

We've still got over two months until Gran Turismo 7 launches, so expect Polyphony to continue to churn out daily races for GT Sport until then.

Race A

Suzuka Circuit - 3 laps

The first race this week takes us to the home of Japanese motorsport, the mesmeric Suzuka Circuit.

TIGHT AND TWISTY: Suzuka is one of the most challenging circuits in GT Sport

You'll be competing in a Honda NSX Type R ’92 that GT provides for you across 3 laps. Racing on sports medium tyres, you'll start on the grid and not have to worry about fuel nor tyre use. There's a time limit of 15 minutes and you'll need to pass eleven cars on the twelve-car grid.

Race B

Kyoto Driving Park - 5 laps

You then head to Japan's old capital Kyoto for a race around its driving park.

RACING OR DRIVING? You race around Driving Park in this week's daily races

This one is run in a Gr.3 car from your garage, so what you use is up to you, but you have to provide it. You'll be on racing medium tyres and need to pass the 16-car grid after starting with a rolling start. Fuel and tyre use are both off.

Race C

Fuji International Speedway - 13 laps

The third and final race for this week is also the longest on the roster. You'll compete in a 13-lap race around the Fuji International Speedway, another very challenging Japanese track.

RAPID: Fuji Speedway's long start/finish straight gives you plenty of time to pass your rivals

The race is between Gr. 1 cars, and you'll again have to provide your own motor. You'll need to do a pit-stop as well, with you needing to run a set of racing soft and mediums throughout the race. Tyre wear will be multiplied by seven and the fuel consumption rate is doubled, so you'll need to be careful if you want to go at full pelt.
