Players are discovering that Gran Turismo 7’s new Weekly Challenge feature is updating for the first time in every timezone, east to west, as midnight approaches on a global scale.
Weekly Challenges are a carefully selected collection of events from all of the game’s World Circuits that appear every week with bonus rewards. They were added in the most current Spec II update, also known as 1.40.
There are five in all, and each Wednesday at midnight local time, they alternate. The events can originate from any of the 185 currently available races, or they can even be entirely new, time-limited events made especially for the week, as we saw in the first batch.
Weekly Challenges not only allow you to cross off events that you might not have tried before (as seen in the new Event Directory, which was also added in Spec II), but they also provide bonus prizes as an added incentive for finishing one, three, and all five events, which only need you to place third or higher in each race.
The Sunday Cup Classic is going to be the slowest race this week. Road cars compete in a two-lap event at the Autodrome Lago Maggiore’s Center layout. A suggested PP of 350 is used, however there is no tire or tune limit. The pitiful sum of 5,000cr awaits the winner.
This week marks the second consecutive week that the new Lake Louise snow circuit appears, this time in the Japanese 4WD Challenge 600. As the name implies, 600 PP is the recommended power, and the only vehicles that can use it are 4WD road cars, professionally tuned Japanese vehicles, and snow tires. The winner of the four-lap Short Track race will receive 38,000cr.
Remaining in the Americas, the American Clubman Cup 700 is a five-lap race held at Laguna Seca. Once more, the suggested PP limit of 700PP is merely a guideline. To win, you will also need a road car from the USA, which would increase your balance by 30,000cr.
You are invited to compete in a one-lap Porsche Cup race at the Nordschleife. Of course, you’ll need a Porsche, but it doesn’t have to be a road vehicle, and this time, the 650 PP restriction is required. 52,500cr is awarded for winning.
Last but not least, this week’s World Touring Car 800 event takes place at Fuji International Speedway over ten laps on the entire circuit. Any car up to a hard 800PP limit is eligible to compete, and any kind of racing tire is acceptable (though we advise starting with some Inters and Wets). Victory will earn 140,000cr.
The prizes for this week are as follows: a Six-Star Roulette Ticket (Parts) for finishing any one event, a 200,000cr ticket for finishing three, and a brand-new item for finishing all five. Parts of the ticket offer uncommon and costly tuning components. It’s unclear exactly what this signifies, but we anticipate it to include some expensive cars. That’s a Six-Star Roulette Ticket (Car).
Every Wednesday night and Thursday morning at midnight local time, the Weekly Challenges are updated. The next set is due on November 15–16 at the same time. To gain access, you must have finished reading GT Cafe Menu Book 39 and seen the climax film.
