GTA Online Time Trials week embraces your inner perfectionist

Rockstar Games is embracing the solitary side of GTA Online with Time Trials Week, offering bonus rewards for players who complete a rotating selection of the Freemode challenges. As usual, you can also invest in some substantially discounted goodies that should give you a leg-up on the challenge.

Completing each day's selected Time Trial will reward you double the standard Reputation Point and GTA$ bonus. Rockstar says you'll still get the full reward "and then some" for finishing during the event, even if you cleared it previously. Here's the schedule of trials:

  • Friday May 6th: Vinewood Bowl
  • Saturday May 7th: Down Chiliad
  • Sunday May 8th: Mount Gordo
  • Monday May 9th: Great Ocean Highway
  • Tuesday May 10th: Sawmill
  • Wednesday May 11th: Maze Bank Arena
  • Thursday May 12th: End to End

Don't fret if your ride isn't quite up to the challenge. The T20, Osiris, and Zentorno supercars will all be on sale for half off throughout the week, as will the Akuma and Hakuchou motorcycles. You can also get a 30-percent discount on performance-boosting engine mods, brakes, and suspensions from Los Santos Customs.

Lester's "Cops Turn Blind Eye" and "Remove Wanted Level" phone services will also be free throughout the week, which should help you get to the Time Trial start zone without getting busted for taking that shortcut through a crowded sidewalk. Mechanic Service will also be free for property owners so you can get all the person-shaped dings out of your bumper.

Lastly, if you prefer a little more direct competition, you'll also get double RP for participating in this week's featured Land Race playlist.
