The calendar has turned to November, but the GT Sport Daily Races continue!

This week sees a Japanese flavour to the races, but we've also got a guaranteed chaotic race too.

Race A

Tokyo Expressway - Central Outer Loop - 5 laps

The first race of the week takes us to Tokyo to run 5 laps on the Tokyo Expressway in a specially provided car.

You'll be racing on the Hard Sports tyres in a 12-car field using a grid start.

There is no tyre wear or fuel consumption to worry about, so just race hard but race fair!

Race B

Monza - No chicane - 4 laps

We're hitting the Temple of Speed this week for a Gr.3 race with a twist.

This will be racing on the "no chicane" layout which removes the Variante del Rettifilo, the first chicane of the track.

You'll be on the Medium Racing tyre but without any wear or fuel consumption. With a 16-car rolling start there shouldn't be too much carnage, but there is a real slipstream effect, which will be massive on the flatout run from Parabolica through Curva Grande to the Della Roggia chicane.

Race C

Suzuka - 10 laps

We're back to Japan for the third race of the week. It's time to take on the full Suzuka circuit in Gr.1 cars.

With a 20-car rolling start field it will be tricky to win if you don't qualify well. However, there is 2x fuel consumption and 7x tyre wear, which means there is a mandatory pitstop.

You'll need to use the Soft & Medium Racing tyres, so a good strategy can make up a lot of time here.
