Your Guide to Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races September 19th: Combat ‘Vette

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature auto tuning at Monza, Gr.4s at Trial Mountain and Gr3s around Daytona’s street circuit.

Just like last week’s daily Gran Turismo 7 races, we’re visiting three more historic venues this week – albeit for different reasons. Monza and Daytona need little introduction to motorsport fans as they are both home to the most popular racing disciplines on either side of the Atlantic: Formula 1 and NASCAR respectively.

Trial Mountain, on the other hand, is a fictional track first seen in the original Gran Turismo in 1997, and as such holds a special place in the hearts of GT veterans. It’s not just nostalgia though, as Trial Mountain offers a challenging fun layout.

For Race A we see a welcome return of auto-tuning. This game mechanic made a welcome return in GT7’s single-player campaign, but was strangely underused online. Races B and C will see Gr.4 and Gr.3 back on the agenda with hopefully the cars having an improved Balance of Performance (BoP)…

As a reminder, we are now using GT7’s new Balance of Performance (BoP) system introduced with July v1.19 update. BoP is now divided into three categories based on the type of track used: high-speed (H), mid-speed (M), and low-speed (L).

Beginning May 30, Race A performance will no longer affect players’ Driver Rating (DR) and Sportsmanship Rating (SR), a trend that was broken in last week’s Daily Race schedule.

RACE A

We’re going to Monza for Race A, but it’s the no-chickane layout, which means the players have free rein onto the Curva Grande. Car tuning is back so the key to performing well is finding the most efficient fast car you can find as top speed is key in Italy’s ‘Temple of Speed’.

Power and weight are limited to 443 hp and 1,300 kg respectively, so the best value arrives in the form of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Considered Chevy’s halo car until the Corvette switched to the mid-engined C8 in 2020, the ZR1 could accelerate to 60 mph in three seconds thanks to a 755-hp V8 engine.

Of course, BoP immediately cuts the ZR-1 above 300 hp of power, but when it comes to tuning, you should buy as many bells and whistles as possible in the tuning shop.

When setting up, minimize front and rear ground clearance; Match the gear ratios to Monza’s long straights and set the power limiter and ballast shifters to ensure you hit the required targets.

Race B

Your Guide to Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races September 19th: Combat 'Vette

Heading to Trial Mountain for Race B and one of the most popular GT tracks of all time. Its technical nature – with elevation changes, tight cornering radii and off-camber brakes – means that all-wheel drive cars enjoy a distinct advantage over others.

Honestly, that’s not a huge surprise considering that Gr.4 races are consistently dominated by total traction cars. This time, however, a wider range of vehicles will be closely matched, including the Genesis G70 GR4, Nissan GT-R and Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI.

However, our choice for Race B is the Alfa as not only is it a running example of motorsport history, it is also very beautiful to look at. It’s also been our favorite Gr.4 car quite often in the past.

Race B uses the Mid-Speed ​​(M) BoP format.

Recommended car: Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI ’93 (Legend Cars, 800,000 credits or free rental)

Race C

The Race C endorsed car continues the déjà vu theme and is also a recurring favorite. The ’18 Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept has been at the top of the Gr.3 stack on many occasions and here on the Daytona International Speedway’s road course layout it’s a step above the competition again.

This race features 9x tire wear, requiring a pit stop at some point. The choice will be how long you can venture out on the medium compound tires before switching to the hard tires (and vice versa). Fuel consumption is limited to 1x, so luckily it’s not an issue.
Race C uses the High-Speed ​​(H) BoP format.

Recommended Car: Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept ’18 (Brand Central 450,000 credits or free rental)
