Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Reverse Course – GTPlanet

Another new set of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races is now available, running for the next seven days, and they’re all about doing things backwards.

As usual, the three races all use the Balance of Performance (BOP) system to roughly equalize vehicle performance within a given class. However this means players cannot tune or tweak their cars — other than visually.

You’ll be able to rent a vehicle for the races, so even if you don’t have an appropriate car you can still take part — although in most cases it’s just players wanting to keep the miles and wear off garage cars. Rented vehicles are only available in standard liveries though.

Race A brings you a short karting sprint, as you’ll head to the new-to-GT7 “East End” course at Lago Maggiore. This is based around turn five of the main circuit, running through the esses and then cutting back onto the GP circuit at turn three. There’s some interesting elevation changes and — although you won’t need it — an infield pitlane.

The race is exclusive to the GT Racing Kart Shifter 125, the cheapest car in the game, and you have nothing to do to it except get out there for a 12-lap blast on the stock Sports Soft tires. Watch out for the curbs though, especially on the GP circuit’s turn four.

There’s a familiar venue for Race B, although in unfamiliar configuration. It’s a four-lap race for Gr.3 cars at Dragon Trail Seaside, but at the Reverse version of the track.

That means the Chicane of Death is back to front — merely becoming the Chicane of Pain — so the real trouble spot on the track is now the turn seven hairpin which has so many bad lines that even GT Sophy would give up trying to find a good one.

The cars are in standard BOP and Racing Hard tire configuration, so just pick your preferred Gr.3 and go racing; there’s a decent mix on the qualifying leaderboards at the moment, albeit with more Supras than anything else.

Finally Race C brings you along to the Sardegna Road Track. You’ll be racing at the longest version of the circuit, the A route, but again in reverse direction.

It’s a ten-lap race for Gr.4 cars and that pretty much means that, even with moderately high tire wear, it’s going to be another race where the Alfa Romeo 155 is the car of choice.

There’s no mandatory tires or pit stops, so it’s just a straightforward blast on Racing Hard tires. At 5x tire wear — so each lap generates five laps’ of tire wear — there’s unlikely to be any strategy necessary, although the last couple of laps might be a little sketchy in some cars.

In order to access the Daily Races, you’ll need to unlock Sport Mode, by completing Menu Book 9 (“Championship: Tokyo Highway Parade”) in the GT Cafe single player hub.

With GT7‘s Daily Races updating every Monday thus far, the next new set should arrive on Monday September 12.
