GT Sport Daily Races: Sparring Supras and French Fancies

There’s three more GT Sport Daily Races to get your teeth into this week, with a rare appearance from one of the game’s original circuits.

For the first time in almost a year players will get to race on the Alsace Village track. This fictional circuit, set in the foothills of Les Vosges, was one of GT Sport’s launch circuits, yet rarely appears in the Daily Races. The last run out involved Gr.2 Super GT machines, but this time we’ve got something a little slower: the Peugeot 208 GTi Peugeot Sport hot hatch. It’s just a two-lap race, so pick a color and get at it.

Race B is partly unsurprising, in that it uses the new Toyota GR Supra. The 2020 model arrived in game just last week, but there’s a twist: you’ll be driving the 2019 car. Even odder, the car will have the same N400 BOP applied as in the GR Supra GT Cup; the new car is a native N400, but the original needs a power bump to fit. It’s another one-make race, this time at the spectacular Spa-Francorchamps circuit. You can pick a car from your own stable too, so drag out those liveries for the three-lap race.

The final event is a Gr.3 special, at the long, combined Kyoto Driving Park circuit. This features the full Yamagiwa track and the reversed Miyabi circuit, with two tricky transitions from one to the other. One thing you’ll need to keep an eye on is the mandatory tires. You’re required to use both the medium and hard racing compounds during the eight lap race, or face a 20-second post-race penalty.

These three races will run through to Monday, May 4, when another new set of three will replace them.
