Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Civic Pride

Gran Turismo 7 Day-to-day Races: Civic Satisfaction

The next seven days’ worth of Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races are now live, with a few changes to the tracklist and some adjustments to the rules to catch out the unwary this week.

That starts with Race A, which has had its settings changed three times in three weeks because it is once more a partially rated event. For the duration of this week, events won’t have an impact on your Driver Rating (DR), but your Sportsmanship Rating (SR), just like two weeks ago, is once again on the line.

The race is a one-make affair featuring one of the newest vehicles, as we frequently see following a game content update. The competition, which will be a seven-lap run over the Grand Valley South track on Sports Hard tires, requires the brand-new 2022 Honda Civic Type R, though you are welcome to borrow one.

Although the corner cadence and camber are noticeably altered for the middle and late parts of the track, the replacement for the original Grand Valley East, South, mostly follows the same route.

Additionally, keep an eye out for False Starts. If you jump the gun and use the grid start, your engine power will be quickly reduced for a brief period of time, and you’ll likely become the scene of a serious accident.

Races B and C follow their standard format and use the Gr.3 and Gr.4 categories that are central to esports racing, respectively. However, in both situations, you’ll have access to various parts of the car settings. That might make some distinct cars more prominent than normal.

The GT4-based Gr.4 cars will be used in Race B, a four-lap sprint on Trial Mountain’s reverse circuit with a nasty turn one and a tight left-right chicane.

As long as it has Racing Medium tires, you can choose or hire any vehicle from this category. In keeping with prior occurrences, you’ll have complete control over your Brake Balance settings – even while the race is still in progress. Additionally, for this week, you’ll have access to damper adjustments.

The Gr.3 cars compete in Race C, a 15-lap race on the challenging but manageable Nurburgring Sprint course.

Similar to Race B, you may modify the damper compression and extension (bound and rebound) settings, as well as the Brake Balance throughout, but this week you can also make changes to the front and rear anti-roll bars in the suspension setting menu.

Since Racing Soft tires are required and the tire wear multiplier is set to 6x, which means the 15-lap race requires 90 laps of rubber, it’s likely you’ll want to complete this with tire preservation in mind.

Stretching those Softs out is essential because the pit lane of the Sprint track makes up just under a third of the entire lap, making it ideal to spend as little time there as possible. Despite being multiplied by two, fuel consumption is largely unimportant.

You must unlock Sport Mode in the GT Cafe single-player hub by finishing Menu Book 9 (“Championship: Tokyo Highway Parade”) in order to enter the Daily Races.

The following new set should be released on Monday, October 9, since GT7’s Daily Races have been updated every Monday throughout the game’s existence.
