Single RaceEdit

Single Race is a game mode for one player. It is divided into Road Race, Rally, and Time Trial.

Road RaceEdit

In Road Race, the player can choose a car and a track to race against 5 AI cars of the same class. Once Road Race is selected and a level (Easy/Normal/Difficult) is chosen, the player is presented with a selection of cars. At first, only the A, B, and C-Class cars are available, in addition to the player cars in Simulation Mode. Other cars can be unlocked, by winning races in Arcade Mode at normal level or higher. A full list of these cars can be found at the bottom of this page. Once the car is selected, the player must choose a track. At the start, only three tracks (Tahiti Road, Mid-Field Raceway, and High Speed Ring) are available to the player, and new circuits becomes available once the player acquires licenses in Simulation Mode. Reverse versions of the tracks can be unlocked by winning races in arcade mode at difficult level. Once the track is selected, the starting grid will be shown, and the race will start.


In Rally, the player can choose rally cars for time trials on rally circuits. At the start, thirteen rally cars are available to the players, alongside their own cars with dirt tyres in simulation mode and more rally cars can be unlocked by winning races in arcade mode at normal level or higher. Once the rally car is selected, the player must choose a rally circuit. At the start, only Tahiti Dirt Route 3 can be chosen, and other rally circuits can be unlocked by obtaining licenses in simulation mode.

Time TrialEdit

Time trial is similar to Rally, but with tracks of Road Race mode instead of the rally circuits. All cars selectable in Road Race can be selected in this game mode.

2 Player BattleEdit

2 Player Battle is a game mode that allows two human player to race together. This game mode is divided in Road Race and Rally, but the differences are only the cars and tracks selectable.

Also note that 2 Player Rallies are not raced like time trials but instead raced like a road race.

Bonus ItemsEdit

In Bonus Items, the player can check its unlocked contents, in a form of a list of all the circuits available. Depending on the level in which the player wins a race in arcade mode, the black square of a circuit can become white if he/she wins at easy level , white with a check if he/she wins at normal level, and white with a circle if he/she wins at difficult level. There are two endings that can be accessed here, one that can be accessed by winning races on all the circuits in Arcade Mode, and another ending accessible by winning the Gran Turismo World League, known respectively as Arcade Mode ending and Simulation Mode ending. In the PAL version, only one ending can be accessed (the Simulation Mode ending), while in the NTSC version both endings can be accessed.
