Kart Attack, a daily race in Gran Turismo 7

With three new multiplayer races to compete in over the next seven days, Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races are back and better than ever with the arrival of a new week.

This week’s events feature the return of the kart, with Race A taking you to Brands Hatch for a classic introduction to racing.

These micro race cars are held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, of course, where drivers may take the Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 Shifter for a ten-lap thrill over the mountainous course. Keep an eye out for the False Start Check on the grid, which indicates that if you jump the start, your engine will cut off. To avoid this, keep the kart on the brakes until the lights go out.

With its small wheelbase, tiny tires (Sports Soft grade this week), and rapid steering, it’s a challenging car to drive, especially when it comes to the steering wheel peripherals. You might be playing the victim because this week’s Sportsmanship Rating updates are back on but Driver Rating updates are still off.

A trip to Deep Forest is seen by Race B. The circuit will host racing for six laps in the other direction and in the slower Gr.4 race category this week, marking the second consecutive week of competition.

For this six-lap race, you can choose any car in the class as long as it has Racing Medium tires on it. However, this week, there’s a big element that needs to be considered. This week, a variety of cars (including the unavoidable Mazda 3) may make an appearance due to the availability of a variety of vehicle settings possibilities.

With the mix of drivetrains in this class, it could be fascinating for players to be able to alter the anti-roll bar, damper compression and extension, spring natural frequency in suspension settings, and all differential settings. Both before and during the race, there are additional brake balancing options accessible.

This is also the case with the Gr.3 race vehicles at the Nurburgring Grand Prix track in Race C, which is a variation on a traditional GT combo.

Racing Medium tires are required once more; even with the 6x multiplier, which effectively doubles the regular rate of wear, they shouldn’t wear down too much during the ten-lap race.

This adds a little intrigue to your decision during the required pit stop: replace your tires in an attempt to make up the little time you lost, or leave them on in order to maintain your current position.

In any case, you will incur a one-minute post-race penalty if you skip this stop. Additionally, you risk receiving a three-second penalty if you cut through the lines at entry or exit.

To gain entry to the Daily Races, you must first unlock Sport Mode in the GT Cafe single player hub by finishing Menu Book 9 (“Championship: Tokyo Highway Parade”).

The next fresh set of GT7’s Daily Races should be available on Monday, February 12, as they have been updated every Monday throughout the game’s existence.
