Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races Repeat Familiar Formulas and Locales This Week.
The newest slate of Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature some déjà vu, with all three events repeating past combinations, albeit with a few twists. The distinct tracks showcase Polyphony Digital’s eccentricities and strengths.
Kicking off the weekly events, Race A spotlights the compact, twisting Alsace Test Course Reverse layout, last featured in March. The challenging kinks put Sportsmanship Ratings at stake in the temperamental Volkswagen Sambabus camper van.
Fans know the Sambabus for its quirky 1960s hippie aesthetic mixed with sluggish mobility that demands momentum conservation. Expect a chaotic five laps punctuated by desperate overtakes into turn five.
Race B delivers a familiar but always entertaining pairing – Brazil’s renowned Interlagos circuit and Gr.3 cars. The six-lap intermediate sprint requires Racing Hard tires and permits adjusting brake balance.
Veterans lean on past experience at Interlagos, where the nimble Toyota GR Supra and Porsche 911 RSR tend to shine through fast curves and elevation changes. Qualifying pace is essential on this prestigious track.
Closing the week, ten laps around Autodrome Lago Maggiore Reverse gives Gr.2 machines a chance to shine. Mandatory tire compound changes due to high wear multipliers mean strategy is vital.

The Optimal Tire Strategy
The optimal approach seems starting on Mediums then switching to Softs while preserving enough grip to sprint the closing laps. Powerful Nissan GT-Rs and Honda NSXs usually reign supreme on this picturesque fictional course.
While repeating past Daily Race formulas seems uninspired on the surface, these events compile memorable locales and categories that retain fresh appeal. Familiarity breeds fierce competition as times get honed through experience.
Developer Polyphony Digital has perfected the Daily Races as an evolving platform for players to continually hone skills, test strategics, and battle rivals. Weekly variations keep the experience novel and unpredictable enough.
The Value of Revived Events
Of course, wholly new tracks and Race configurations would be exciting additions to the Daily Races’ rotating repertoire. But the accumulated knowledge around revived events enables especially tight, tactical competition.
The real driving simulator recently got an update 1.38 that expanded the car list, added additional Scapes photo locations and menus.
For now, veterans and newcomers alike have the chance to revisit these races with lessons learned, evolved techniques, and roster additions since their last outings. Mastery comes through practice.
