The new trio of Sport Mode races takes us to two iconic real-world circuits along with a classic Gran Turismo original for three intriguing races. Let's take a look at what's happening this week.

Race A

Red Bull Ring - 5 laps

The first race this weekend takes us to the Austrian mountains for five laps around the Red Bull Ring in the Maserati MC20 '20.

The 12-car field will use a grid start, and everyone will be using the Sports Hard tyres. There is 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear for this race.

Each car will use a mid-speed BoP, with no further adjustments allowed. SR is on for this race, but DR will be unaffected by your result in this race.

There is light mechanical damage, along with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions with other cars.

Race B

Laguna Seca - 6 laps

Race B is the first fully ranked race of the week. It takes players to Laguna Seca for a six-lap race in Gr.3 cars.

The 16-car field will use a rolling start, so you'll want to get a qualifying lap in or you will be way behind at the start. Each car will be on the Racing Hard tyre and there is 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear.

Everyone will be using a low-speed BoP, however brake balance changes are allowed along with partial suspension and differential gear changes.

As mentioned, both DR & SR are on for this race.

There is light mechanical damage, along with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions with other cars.

Race C

Grand Valley - Highway 1 Reverse - 9 laps

The final race takes us to Grand Valley for a reverse race around the usual circuit in Gr.4 cars.

The 16-car field will use a rolling start, so again qualifying will be important. Each car must use the Racing Hard tyre, but the Racing Medium tyre is useable as well.

There is 7x fuel consumption and 1x tyre wear so a pit stop may be the fastest way to win this race, but it is not mandatory.
