Your Guide to Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races on May 8th: Plenty of Ways to Climb Mount Panorama

Gran Turismo 7’s Ranked Sport Mode Daily Races have a few different challenges this week, and each one has its own unique flavor. Superspeedway-style draft racing is on the table in non-ranked Race A, while two historic venues at the Nurburgring and Bathurst are on the table for Gr.3 and Gr.4 races, respectively.

The Race B event is somehow probably the least destructive race you’ll find this week. Oval racing in general creates a lot of contacts and incidents, while the up and down hilltop run at Bathurst is one of the toughest out there.

Again, I’ll handle this for you all while my staff crown a king or something. I don’t know, the only king I recognize is NASCAR’s Richard Petty. Anyway, I’ve enjoyed the weeks of learning about these different breeds and I hope these articles have been of some help as well.

By the way, if you’re new here than me, GT7’s sport mode features online ranked races, where you’ll be placed based on your past performances within the races. All my races this week have been bumpy as I’ve managed to get myself to the B driver level now so obviously everyone is better than me.

If you can drive flawlessly you will improve your safety rating and if you are able to get great results you can improve your driver rating. Race hard, ride clean and have fun.

RACE A – Superspeedway racing on the Route X special stage

This is my jam, right here. Unfortunately, it’s a bit disappointing when you get into the details, but it’s also a one-round draft and full open battle on the long Route X special stage.

In this particular race, you don’t use your own car, only the ones you’re supposed to use. There are 10 of them and I really want to say that you can just pick your favorite, that’s just not the case here.

Unfortunately, there is a clear favorite among the residents right away – the Merc. While I saw a few Bugattis in the field, the Mercedes-AMG GT seemed to be the fastest and most popular among the crowd.

Now, this is an unranked race, so it’s just for fun, but if you want to know how to win one of these, it’s a matter of chess at, well, 250 mph. Stay in the draft, block the runs, don’t get flipped, and save the Nitrous push-to-pass button until you need it. Use it to put yourself in the lead, then make sure you get to the line.

It says tuning is allowed, but I don’t know about that. That doesn’t seem to be a viable option. By the way, drive aggressively, but also don’t destroy anyone. This gives a five-second penalty at the end of the race.

RACE B ÔÇô Gr.3 at the Nurburgring GP

Probably the most straight forward race of the week, simply put it’s a sprint race with Gr.3 cars on the sprint (or GP) section of the Nurburgring.

Nothing too flashy or difficult, just really getting to know the track and overtaking cleanly is the primary prerogative here. There are plenty of overtaking zones if you know how to use the brakes and maximize your turns.

In the case of the BoP, this is also a fairly simple selection from many when it comes to choosing a car. So far this week, many best times have come from the Lamborghini stable, but the Audi R8 LMS Evo and the Mercedes-AMG GT3 are also good choices.

RACE C ÔÇô Gr.4 at Bathurst

Race C is a sucker, with an unclear strategy reminiscent of last week’s Spa event but maybe a little tougher. In this race fuel is an issue alongside possible tire strategy as medium compound is available but hard compound is the mandatory tire for the race.

So with all of this, there are a few strategies. First is the car, and the clear favorite here is the Nissan Silvia spec-R Aero. If you don’t have one, rent one. The Ferrari 458 Italia Gr.4 isn’t bad either. You could start on hard or medium tires, do a certain number of laps, pit, refuel a lap, and switch to the different tire compound.

Players can also choose to save fuel with fuel mapping. If you leave the mapping at 1, which is fastest, you’re missing a lap. Maybe let it run at 2 for a few laps, which will hurt the time but get you to the finish. Both strategies, whether to pit or stay out, require eight clean laps.

Lap time challenge

The Olympic esports event is in the books, congratulations to everyone who attended. This week’s lap time challenges include a run at Grand Valley South in the Wicked Fabrication GT ’51 that Tom drove last week. There is also a Gr.3 challenge at Fuji to take part in.

Lap Time Challenge C Recommended Car: Lamborghini Hurac├ín GT3 ’15 (Brand Central, 450,000 credits or free car rental)

A new lap time challenge will be available on May 11th at 7:00 GMT to replace the Fuji challenge.
