GT7 Daily Races 8 May: Global racing


It's a truly global week for the GT7 Daily Races 8 May! Polyphony is taking us to a rarely-used American track before heading to a new layout and true classic.

This week's trio of races in Sport Mode come with two Lap Time Challenges still available for players. A Gr.3 lap of Fuji still has two days to run, with the Grand Valley South & Wicked Fabrication GT 51 time trial running for another nine days.

That's four million credits available if you are fast enough over one lap. If you are looking to test your Gran Turismo 7 skills against other players though, the Daily Races are for you!

Race A

Special Stage Route X - 1 lap

The unranked race this week is set to be chaotic as it is one lap around the ultra-long oval of Special Stage Route X.

The 12-car field will use a rolling start, so you will want to qualify well if you are to win this one. Drivers will be on the Comfort Soft tyre with 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear.

You can use one of ten cars for this race. They are:

  • Supra RZ '97
  • R34 GT-R V-spec II Nur '02
  • Viper GTS '13
  • Corvette ZR1 (C6) '09
  • Chiron '16
  • GT-R NISMO '17
  • RE Amemiya FD3S RX-7
  • Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series '20
  • Aventador LP 750-4 SV '15
  • Huayra '13

Tuning is allowed, so you will want to trim downforce and get the top speed as high as possible in this race!

Mechanical damage is off, but you will have no ability to recover after a spin so don't go pushing it. there are normal track limits, along with light penalties for shortcuts and for collisions.

Race B

Nurburgring - Sprint - 6 laps

We're off to the new short layout of the Nurburgring for the first ranked race of the week. Players will be in Gr.3 cars for this six-lap blast.

Everyone will be using Racing Hard tyres with 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear.

A mid-speed BoP will be applied to every car for this race, with DR and SR being affected by your performance.

Mechanical damage is set to light, with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions.

Race C

Mount Panorama - 8 laps

The final race this week takes us to Australia for a Gr.4 race around Mount Panorama.

This eight-lap race will use a 16-car rolling start, and has 6x fuel consumption and 3x tyre wear. It also has a mandatory tyre compound, the Racing Hard, but the Racing Medium is also available.

There is no mandatory pitstop, so some sensible driving should get those hards to the end, but it will take some experimentation to find the best race strategy for this one.

All cars will be using a high-speed BoP with normal track limits set. Mechanical damage is set to light, with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions. There is also a penalty for pit lane line cutting, so if you do stop be sure to stay on the correct side of the line!
