Gran Turismo 7 Guide: How To Earn Credits Quickly

When you first boot up Gran Turismo 7, you’ll start out with just a few credits – but there are ways to earn more very quickly.

If you’ve just picked up Gran Turismo 7, you need to face a hard truth. If you want to unlock the super fast cars of your dreams, you’re going to need to grind for quite a bit. High class cars like McLaren, Aston Martins, and Pagani’s are all locked behind a ridiculously high credit pay wall. The only way to unlock them quickly is to purchase credits from the PlayStation Store, or by doing it the long way around.

Thankfully, there are a few ways that you can earn credits quickly in Gran Turismo, mostly from the beginning of the game. Here’s how!

Complete Championships

Not long into Gran Turismo 7, you’ll begin to unlock Championships. These consist of two back-to-back races. Score the highest amount of points across both of them and you can net yourself huge rewards. If you place first in both races and drive without colliding with other races, you can earn yourself up to 35,000 credits per shot.

It takes about 10-minutes to complete a single championship, so that’s a pretty great time investment if you want to get rich quick. Simply throw on some of your own tunes or a podcast in the background and race for your life. You’ll be behind the wheel of a hotshot racer in no time.

Complete Licences and Challenges

Licences and Challenges are short skill check tasks that ask you to complete a racing manoeuvre or scenario. You’re then graded on your skills based on what position you finish or the time you complete the task in. Bronze, Silver and Gold trophies are up for grabs, and earning the top spot will net you fairly significant rewards.

If you’re already great at racing in Gran Turismo 7, then these challenges are certainly worth completing. Usually, earning a Gold trophy will net you about 3,000 credits. Completing all of the challenges and licences in a particular category will net you a free car as an added bonus!

Other than that, there’s no real ‘get rich quick’ trick in Gran Turismo 7 just yet. Be prepared to rubber in for one heck of a drive, and get saving!
