Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races: Collision Course

Gran Turismo 7 Day-to-day Races: Collision Route

Three circuit variations that are uncommon in ranking multiplayer events are now available to players in the most recent batch of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races.

Naturally, Race A continues to be a “No DR/SR Updates” event as normal. This effectively turns the race into a planned lobby race because neither your Driver Rating nor Sportsmanship Rating will be impacted by anything that occurs during the race.

You’ll be traveling to a fictitious track in the foothills close to the French-German border, where a three-lap race will be held on the lengthy Alsace Village course. It is a track that was modeled after traditional French road-racing layouts, albeit with many fewer straightaways.

It’s a one-make event as usual, and this week’s entry is the modern Alpine A110 sports car, which seems like a very good fit for the location. Of course, you may rent one for the race by selecting the “Rent an Event-Specified Car” option, but if you do, it will only come in regular colors. However, doing so will guarantee that your car complies with all requirements, including the installation of Sports Hard tires.

The Fuji International Speedway circuit is visited by the Race B sprint, however this week’s race is held on the “short” version of the track.

If you’re struggling to remember the short version, this plan merely eliminates the Dunlop Chicane, converting it into a single right-hander and eliminating 150 feet of the circuit altogether.

You can choose any vehicle from this GT4-like, production car-based racing category for the four-lap Gr.4 race on Racing Hard tires, although given Fuji’s fabledly long main straight, we’d advise something with legs.

Although we don’t anticipate that will have as much of an effect on which vehicles are more dominating given the high-speed nature of the track, you will once again be able to change your brake balancing settings for these cars – on the fly if you like.

Finally, Race C will put you in Gr.3 vehicles, Gran Turismo’s version of the GT3 category, on a track that we really wouldn’t anticipate being appropriate for these fast cars.

Using the smallest of these routes, you’ll be traveling to the Sardegna Road Track location, a fictional circuit based on the Italian island of Sardinia. Additionally, as the competition is held on the 1.65-mile C layout’s reverse course, you’ll be racing it the wrong way.

Notably, you will be able to modify the suspension’s natural frequency setting as well as the brake balance. This is a change from last week when you could change the damper settings; if you need advice on how to do this best, consult our forums for car settings.

In addition, the 20-lap race includes a required pit stop. You must go down pit road at least once throughout the race—you don’t need to add any tires or fuel to do so—or you’ll be assessed a one-minute time penalty at the finish line.

With only Racing Soft tires available and a 6x multiplier on tire wear, it’s probable that you’ll want to stop anyhow because the tires won’t likely last the entire 20-lap race. There is also a 2x fuel consumption multiplier in place, although it has no bearing on this race.

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, September 18, since GT7’s Daily Races have been updated every Monday throughout the game’s existence thus far.
