It has been just short of two weeks since Gran Turismo 7‘s highly successful launch. Plenty of new players are getting onboard and could always use a leg up, so that’s why we have put together this guide to help you newer players and maybe some returning players with what to do in order to progress through the game.

There is an emphasis on car collection in the new game, as collecting all the cars you’re asked to will further your progress. So without further ado, this is what you need to do in Gran Turismo 7.

Do What Luca says

After going to the used car dealership and picking either a Mazda Demio, Honda Fit or Toyota Aqua, you will be directed to GT Café and there you will find a guy named Luca. He will give you a load of anecdotes about cars throughout your time playing the game, but it’s his objectives you will want to follow.

What you want to do is complete his menu books, all of which are rather simple to do. You will receive a guide to earn all the cars, which tells you which race you have to enter and finish in the top three. Sometimes it may be difficult to achieve, and you will have to modify your cars in order to get onto the podium and therefore to earn the relevant car.

Along with individual one off races, there are also championships to enter into. Some of these will require you to have performed a minimum amount of licence tests with a Bronze pass award at least.

We must warn you though, since Gran Turismo 7‘s latest update there is a bug where certain licence tests will not allow players to be fitted with the correct tyres. For example, in International A licence’s third test, you’ll need to navigate lots of hairpins on the Fishermans Ranch dirt track and typically, the car will be equipped with Dirt tyres. However, as of now, that particular test has players stuck with Racing Hard tyres making it virtually impossible to complete.

So until this is rectified, you may want to avoid licence tests for the most part. The lowest you need to complete the campaign is a National A licence, but there may be tests with this ‘wrong tyres’ bug that can’t be completed. If you’re having difficulty completing a certain test, it may be worth waiting until Polyphony fix this bug.

It’s simple enough, the game doesn’t leave you to figure out what you need to do. Just refer to the yellow icon in the top left to see what you need to be doing and you’ll be on your way to getting the most out of your Gran Turismo 7 experience.
