Premium race & time trial

“Great Ocean Highway” is the time trial of the week. Beating the specified time will earn players GTA$ and RP. Time trials can be started by entering the “purple corona” on the in-game map.
The Vespucci Job is a brand new mode coming to GTA Online Tuesday, April 17. In “The Vespucci Job,” players will be split into two teams, the madcap caper or the LSPD. Depending on the role, players will either be on the run in the Weeny Issi Classic or attempting to hunt down those attempting to flee in an LSPD squad car.
The new mode next week will also see the addition to GTA Online of the Vapid Flash GT sports car and the Sea Sparrow Chopper, an amphibious throwback from Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.
