The two races both have 5 laps. First is the Daytona Road Course that can be very challenging with a slower car, even if it drafts well. The other is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course, this one is easy if you have a car that's good with drafting.

Recommended cars you should driveEdit


  • Using a car on this event for B-spec is useful for breaking in a car as you have to do very little and it is long mileage.
  • Unlike Like The Wind in GT3 and GT4, the GT5 version has two courses, instead of just having only one course.
