Roll, Roll, Roll – GTPlanet

The latest set of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races has arrived to cover the next seven days, and there has been something of a stir in proceedings this week.

From the v1.15 updateRace A has become an effective unranked event. You won’t gain or lose Driver or Sportsmanship Rating points during the race, so it’s more or less an open lobby, but at scheduled times.

There’s another big change in Race A this week, as it’s the first in the first few weeks that the Balance of Performance (BOP) system will be turned off and players will be able to tune and tweak their own cars.

Apart from nitrous oxide, which is still banned, it is free for everyone. You can enter any car you want, as long as it’s a road car, tuned to your liking, within the limits of 450 PP and on Comfort Soft tires.

Of course, that means you can’t use the car rental system, so it’s an event for your own garage cars only. Once you get a suitable car, it’s a five-lap race from Laguna Seca, with a rolling start.

Race B this week also has an unusual consideration: fuel economy. Normally this is only enabled for Race C, but you’ll be dealing with a 7x fuel economy multiplier for the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps five-lap race – so your fuel tank will run out seven times faster.

That requires a bit of fuel economy – leaner maps, lift and roll, short shifts – with more for the thirstier cars in the required Gr.3 class, so make sure you save enough for the final laps. Racing Hard tires are mandatory and you can hire a car if you want to try something different.

Race C also has a strange tactical advantage this week. It is a nine-lap race around the entire Autodrome Lago Maggiore circuit, for Gr.4 cars. There’s also a 7x fuel economy multiplier, which will probably require some fuel management as well, but that’s not the main concern.

That goes to the tires instead. You may use Racing Hard and Racing Soft tires, but the Softs are mandatory – you must use them for at least one lap of the race or you will be penalized for a minute after the race.

Plus, the 12x tire wear multiplier means stopping on Softs will be incredibly difficult, especially for front and four wheel drive cars as they will experience 108 rounds of wear.

To access the daily races, you must unlock the sports mode by completing Menu Book 9 (“Championship: Tokyo Highway Parade”) in the GT Cafe single player hub.
