GT7 Daily Races 07 August: Globetrotting

Coinciding with the release of update 1.36, a new set of GT7 Daily races are live with three new globetrotting events to tackle. GT7 Daily Races 07 August sees players take a vintage single-seater for a spin before hopping into GR.3 and GR.4 cars for ranked races around world-famous tracks in Belgium and Brazil.

Here’s what’s in store for players in GT7 Daily Races 07 August.

Race A

Race A takes us to Suzuka Circuit for a four-lap race where you’ll be taking the Honda RA272 ’65 for a spin. This single-seater is famous for being Japan's first Grand Prix winner. With 12 cars on the grid, this is a rolling start race on Racing Hard, Comfort, or Wet tyres.

Race B

Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps - 4 Laps

The first ranked race sees players head to Spa for a four-lap race in Gr.4 cars. This race has 16 cars on the grid and a rolling start on Racing Hard, Comfort, or Wet tyres. Like Race A, fuel consumption and tyre wear are set to 1x.

As for tyres, Racing Mediums, Racing Softs, Intermediate, and Wet Tyres are allowed. However, this race has a Racing Medium tyre change requirement so you’ll need to plan a strategic pit stop.

This race uses high-speed BoP tuning, but you can tune the brake balance. There is also light mechanical damage, light shortcut penalties, and penalties for collisions and pit lane cutting. These penalties will affect your DR and SR.
