We're in a new year, but some of the traditions of 2021 have carried over. The first Monday of 2022 has yielded three great races to try out in Gran Turismo Sport.

Gran Turismo 7 is on the way, but Polyphony are still adding new races every week until its March release day.

This one is run in a Gr.4 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

Dragon Trail (Seaside) - 12 laps

The third and final race for this week is also the longest on the roster. You'll compete in a 12-lap race around the amazing Dragon Trail in Croatia.

The race is between Gr. 3 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 six and the fuel consumption rate is doubled, so you'll need to be careful if you want to go at full pelt.
