GTA Online Weekly Update: July 7 – July 18
GTA Online players, it’s time for the weekly update! This week we have a bonus week for the Diamond Casino Heist while we wait for the upcoming DLC. This means we can expect the DLC to drop on Tuesday next week. In the meantime, Rockstar has kept us updated with everything that’s happening this week.
GTA Online Event Week
The Los Santos Car Meet has introduced the Zion Classic as the Prize Ride of the week. This sports classic can reach speeds of 113 miles per hour and costs 812K plus upgrades. To get your hands on it, all you need to do is place in the top five of three LS Car Meet races. Also, this week we have the Visa Neo, Trafad Thrax, and Project Immure as test rides. The Emurus is a fantastic ride so make sure to take it out for a spin.
Next, we have the Dinka Sigoi as this week’s podium vehicle at the Diamond Resort & Casino. It is worth 1.224 million and can be upgraded to satisfy your needs. We also have a regular time trial starting at Galileo Park which offers a prize money of 100k. Cyprus Flats is offering an RC time trial starting with a prize money of 100k as well. If you’ve invested in a Bandito, now is the time to use it! Additionally, those who have next-gen consoles can do the HSW East Vinewood race for a prize of 100k.

There is a lot of opportunity to earn money this week. Open-wheel races can earn you double cash and RP, while Free Mode Casino Work offers triple money and RP. Overtime Shootout and Gerald’s Last Play missions can make you double money and RP too. If you’re into time trials, there is double cash on standard time trials and four times the cash and RP on the Data Leaks mission.
