In Gran Turismo 7, credits are the main currency and are necessary to increase and improve your car collections. They are not only required to buy cars but also are used in buying upgrade parts, paint schemes, and more.
After the recent updates, credit farming has become much easier in Gran Turismo 7. So, in this guide, we’ll list down the easiest and most fun methods to earn credits.
Le Mans- WTC 700
First up, we have the WTC 700 race at the famous Circuit de la Sarthe at Le Mans. The event is a 30-minute race with rain coming down towards the latter half. During the rainy section, intermediate tires are the way to go and will help you blast through the field easily. But make sure to conserve fuel, ideally keeping it at 2 or 3.
Any Gr. 4 will work here as they are mostly under 700 PP with a few adjustments, especially the Ferrari 458 due to its great exit speeds and smooth handling. Other than that, Japanese Cars like the Nissan R33 and R34 work fine here as well.
The total credits you can earn for the race are 550,000 CR for finishing 1st. With a clean race bonus of 50%, you can get up to 825,000 CR within 30 minutes. That amounts to 1,650,000 CR in an hour.
Sardegna Road Track- WTC 800
Next, we have the WTC 800 race at the Sardegna Road Track. The event is a 15-lap race with 8x fuel consumption and 12x tire wear rate. So, fuel and tire management is key here if you don’t have a powerful car here.
While the game tries to limit you to 800 PP, there are no restrictions on car types here. As such you can choose the might Gr.1 and Gr.2 cars. The McLaren F1 GTR Race Car ’97, Mercedes CLK-LM ’98, and the Jaguar XJR-9 work amazingly due to their amazing fuel load capacity. In addition to that, the track is full of straights which make the Gr.1 and Gr.2 cars overpowered.
It’ll take you about 22-27 minutes depending on what car you choose to drive and will give you 485,000 CR for finishing first. Along with the 50% clean race bonus, it will total in at 727,500 CR. In an hour it will give 1,455,000 CR. If you complete it with the Gr.1 and Gr. 2 cars, it is possible to do the race 3 times and earn 2,182,500 credits.
Spa Francorchamps- WTC 800 (Latest GT7 Credit Farming Method After Update 1.13)
The WTC-800 race at Spa is the first proper repeatable endurance race added to the game after update 1.13. The race is a 1-hour race and features heavy rain after the first 10-12 minutes. Intermediate tires will not do the trick at all during the downpour so you must choose the Wets. It will stop raining after around 30 minutes but don’t be fooled.
As the weather in this game is randomized, there is a high chance another downpour of heavy rain will arrive. The second arrival of rain is a bit of a gamble, so you should always check the weather radar.
Gr.3 cars are fun to use here as they will give you a great taste of real-life GT3 races at Spa. But if you’re not in the mood for competition, the Gr.1 and Gr.2 races will work just fine.
The race will give 1,000,000 CR for 1st position. If you get the 50% clean race bonus, it will give you 1,500,000 CR for an hour.
Tokyo Expressway- WTC 600 (Most Popular GT7 Credit Farming Method)
The WTC-600 race at Tokyo Expressway is another fun event to earn credits fast. It is a 12-lap race and the AI is much harder depending on what car you choose. The track is partially wet, so pick the tires carefully depending on what you feel comfortable on. The intermediates work great but degrade fast while the slick tires have less grip but don’t degrade as much. Fuel-saving is also key here so it’s better to keep it at 3 or 4.
The Alpine A220 Race Car ’68 is a fun choice but if you want to earn credits fast, the SRT Tomahawk X is the best for this. Although the car costs 1,000,000 CR, you can quickly earn it back by using it in the race. It will lap all the other cars multiple times in the race if driven smoothly. There are several ways to get the PP of it under 600 due to a glitch. Polyphony Digital has tried to patch the glitch but Gran Turismo 7 fans still found new ways to decrease the PP and do a lot of credit farming.
Update: The 1.15 update has patched the Tomahawk glitch permanently.
The race will give you 550,000 CR for finishing 1st and with the 50% clean race bonus, it rounds up at 825,000 CR. The race typically takes 24-27 minutes for normally detuned cars. But using the Tomahawk, you can finish the race within 15-20 minutes easily. That means the race can be repeatable 3-4 times in an hour which can give you up to 3,300,000 CR.
The Human Comedy Endurance Missions
Polyphony Digital added 8 endurance races in Gran Turismo 7 for credit farming after update 1.11. These races feature different cars and track combinations and as such have varying degrees of difficulties. But they are fun and give out valuable credits nonetheless.
Each of these races gives out 1,200,000 CR which is great. But unfortunately, while they are repeatable, they won’t give out the same amount of credits as the first time. Nevertheless, they will give a good chunk of credits for an hour’s worth of racing.
These events will surely help you earn a lot of credits in the game and in buying and modifying the most amazing cars for your prestigious collection.
