A new week brings fresh Sport Mode races for Gran Turismo 7 players. A new trio of Daily Races has landed in the game, with Update 1.40 also expected to arrive this week it is a great time for GT7 fans.
This week players are off to two classic motorsport venues along with one lesser-used track for some wild racing! Let's take a look at everything going on in Gran Turismo 7 this week.
Willow Springs - Horse Thief Mile - 8 laps
The first race this week is only half unranked. DR will not update with your performance here, but your SR will so keep it clean!
This race is eight laps of the tricky Willow Springs Horse Thief Mile in the Garage RCR Civic, which entered GT7 with Update 1.39. Everyone will be on the Sports Medium tyre, with 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear. The 12-car field will also be using a grid start that includes a false start check.
A low-speed BoP is in use for this race, with light mechanical damage also switched on. There are light shortcut penalties in this one, along with penalties for collisions.
Red Bull Ring - 5 laps
The first fully-ranked race of the week takes us to the Red Bull Ring for five laps in Gr.4 cars. The 16-car field will use a rolling start for this race so qualifying will be important. Everyone is on the Racing Hard tyre, and there is 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear.
Everyone will be using a mid-speed BoP, however some additional adjustments are allowed. Players can modify their brake balance and make partial suspension tweaks.
There is light mechanical damage in this race, along with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions.
Spa - 8 laps
The final race this week is a great one, as we are set for eight laps around Spa-Francorchamps in Gr.3 cars with a mandatory pitstop.
Both the Racing Medium and Soft must be used in this race, and there is 1x fuel consumption and 8x tyre wear so balancing your laps on each tyre will be tricky.
Every car will use a high-speed BoP, but partial suspension changes and brake balance tweaks are allowed.
There is light mechanical damage in this race, along with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions. There is also a penalty for cutting the pit lane lines so be sure to stay on the correct side when you make your stops!
Update 1.40 is coming
After radio silence last week, Kazunori Yamauchi has posted his usual teaser tweet for update 1.40, and it is huge!
There are seven cars hidden in shadows. These include the Lexus LFA, which had been in high demand from the players, the NISMO 400R which has been in every previous GT game, and the all-new 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
There are also three American muscle cars and what appears to be a Tesla Model 3. So it's a big update for cars. Given all of this we would hope for a series of new Missions and Cafe Menu Books, along with a track, but Gran Turismo fans should temper their excitement on that front.
