GTA Online Time Trials
Here's everything you need to know about the trio of trials in GTA Online this week:
RC Bandito Time Trial
To be able to start this time trial, you'll need to own an Arena Garage and have purchased the RC Bandito from the "special" option on Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
The RC Bandito Time trial is at Little Seoul Park this week. Beating the trial within the par time of 01:10.00 this week will earn you $100,000 for the first time, then only a few thousand dollars if you do it again. You still get some cash for failing to beat the set time as well.
HSW Time Trial
To start this type of time trial, you need own and be driving a HSW vehicle. This week, the HSW Time Trial is in Textile City.
The main time trial can be completed in almost any vehicle you own, so make sure to pick one that you know has the ability to beat the target time. These trials are only available to those of you on next generation consoles.
The Time Trial this week is at the Great Ocean Highway and if you beat the par time of 02:04.90, you can expect around $100,000 to be added to your in-game account. If you fail to beat the par time or if you beat it again after defeating it once, you'll still earn a handful of money for taking part.
Remember, all of these goodies are only around until Thursday, 18th May and then a brand new set will take their place. So, if you see anything you like then grab your weapons, start your engines and dive into the chaos that is Los Santos.
