The latest update of Rockstar’s verified jobs for GTA Online includes a recreation of the iconic Nurburging racetrack.
Mr_Grandis describes his submission as a “very technical and dangerous track with blind corners, bumps and long straight road” which has been recreated around Banham Canyon, Tongva Hills, Great Chaparral and Vinewood Hills.
Eight races were added in the update in total, of which you can check out the full list here:
LSC Great Eight – Created by DrAtomic1
While it may look like a simple figure 8 track at first glance, the changes in elevation and tighter hairpins require a steady hand and intense concentration. Running around different levels of the Olympic Freeway this course will challenge all aspects of your driving. A strong octo-theme runs through this race: as DrAtomic1 points out in the description, the track itself is 0.8 miles long, and the maximum number of players is, you guessed it, 8.
Dirt Track Derby – Created by N8thok
While there are hundreds of Jobs arranged around the horse racing track in the Palomino Highlands, we picked out N8thok’s effort due to the considered placement of obstacles and pickups around the track that change this from a simple lap race to a white knuckle derby. With 16 players jostling for position, the slightest nudge could force you into the back of a burnt out bus, or off the track entirely. Masters of the art of drifting should be able to nail the curve corners and slingshot their vehicles into the straight sections. Final positions in the race will be decided by inches, the smallest mistake could be fatal.
Observe and Race – Created by The_Gemte
In this one, 3 quick laps of the circuit leading up to the Observatory have been laid out using a variety of barriers to make for a very fluid and natural race. Overtaking skills will be put to the test as the only straight comes in the form of a narrow tunnel section where race leaders can easily defend against drifters. Corners will be your only option to snatch the lead, so aim for the racing line, brake late and hope for the best!
Getting High and Low – created by El_Cactus
Precision is the name of the game in this high octane motorbike race along the narrow dirt paths just above Cassidy Creek. Maintaining control of your ride is absolutely essential as overhanging pine bows could take you out at any moment. Go easy on your first run, the corners come thick and fast and the only way to win is to make the fewest mistakes. Anyone reaching the end without spinning off the path and falling into the creek below at least once should be pretty pleased with themselves.
Through The Grapeseed – Created by LoveLikeJazz
As Creator LoveLikeJazz describes it, this is a “lengthy lap race around Grapeseed with lots of long stretches and a few tricky turns. Watch out for those Sandkings, they think they own the road.” Also, watch out for the stretch that goes the wrong way up the Senora Freeway, adding an extra element of danger to each lap. Avoid oncoming traffic to gain the advantage over your fellow racers, and keep an eye out for some spectacular crashes.
Sandy Shores Circus – Created by datwista111
Creator datwista111 modestly describes Sandy Shores Circus as a “simple race”, belying the difficulty of the 45 degree turns around Sandy Shores town that will send cars criss-crossing each other all over. There are a few extra features of this race that really make it stand out, including crashing through a fence and into a resident’s garden and a final straight that results in a high speed jump straight into the Alamo Sea… just the thing to cool down screaming hot engines.
Senora Desert Hills – Created by: ZardozToast
“Enjoy the best switchbacks in Blaine County with this winding off-road race up and down the hills of the Grand Senora Desert.” A long and winding race that was selected for the unique way it allows players to drift down several dirt roads on the hills of the Senora Desert. Expert control and vehicle selection is essential in order to avoid drifting off the edge of a hill and down into the rocky valley below.
