GTA Online has added new Special Vehicle Circuit Races with its latest update Rockstar

The are a number of Special Vehicle Circuit Races, each focusing on one of the three fancy vehicles. The Imponte Deluxo, the flying vehicle similar to the DeLorean in Back to the Future 2, has four different races: Stadium Flyover, Raton Race, Techno and Cresting. The submarine-like Ocelot Stromberg has three different races: Spindrift, The Kraken and Plunge. Lastly, the Mammoth Thruster jetpack also is featured in three races: Vinewood Air Tours, Chiliad Drop and FlyLo Challenge.

Competing in any of these races earns players double the GTA$ and RP rewards through May 7. Competing in the 20 other Special Vehicle Races for the Blazer Aqua, Rocket Voltic and Ruiner 20000 also pay out with double the rewards.

If you're looking to save money, this week is not the best. There are a seriously limited number of items on sale through May 7, but they are all the special vehicles featured in the new races. The discounted items are as follows:

  • Mammoth Thruster - 25 percent off
  • Imponte Deluxo - 25 percent off
  • Ocelot Stromberg - 25 percent off
  • Ruiner 2000 - 25 percent off
  • Blazer Aqua - 25 percent off
  • Rocket Voltic - 25 percent off

As usual, there is a new premium race and time trial to tackle this week. The premium race is "Downtown Loop" which is locked to Super cars. The time trial is "Fort Zancudo." All participants in a premium race earn triple the RP, and the top three finishers earn GTA$ as well. Beating the par time for the time trial race also pays out in RP and GTA$.
