GTA Online Prize Ride & Challenge This Week? (16 September)

Rockstar Games recent release of the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update added a whole heap of content to the game.

Although most fans would have probably been giddy at the new LS Car Meet social space, which is great for showcasing new Tuner-inspired vehicles, that is merely the tip of the iceberg.

Players also have a test track for trying out new cars before they buy, new robbery-style Contracts, even more races and even a new reputation system that can help unlock new rewards. And that's still not everything!

But one of the best new additions is the new Prize Ride Challenges, which give players the chance to win the weekly Prize Ride Car; which is on display on the back of a Slamtruck in the Car Meet.

If you've come to this page, you're likely keen to know more about how it works, so let us explain.

First off, you need to make sure you've paid the $50,000 for your LS Car Meet Membership. Once you've got that squared away you can then undertake the weekly Prize Ride Challenges.

Open your interaction menu in the LS Car Meet and then select the 'Prize Ride Challenge' to see what the weekly challenge is (we've also mentioned that further down). Once you know what to do you should then be able to select the race in question from the interaction menu.

You'll then be placed in a lobby with other players for the race in question, but be warned you may have to wait a bit for other players to join the race.

Now you just need to complete the Prize Ride Challenge in question to win the sweet ride. This will likely be determined by your winning position in one of the many new races added to the game, which includes:

  • Head-to-Head – a one-on-one ‘short format race’
  • Scramble – up to four players race to collect 20 checkpoints
  • Time Trials
  • Street Race Series
  • Pursuit Series – a more open race, where you can take multiple different routes
  • Sprint – a point to point challenge against up to three others

For the GTA Online event week starting September 16 players have a brand new Prize Ride Challenge that runs until September 23.

The Prize Ride Challenge this week is to 'Place top 3 in a Street Race Series race for 5 days in a row to receive it.' in order to claim the Prize Ride between now and September 9. Those successful will win themselves the new Prize Ride which is currently sat on the Slamtruck at the heart of the LS Car Meet.

This week the Prize Ride is the Dinka Jester RR, worth $1,970,000.

Don't worry if you've never heard of it, the tuner car is one of the games many new Los Santos Tuners cars, added in the last update.

The good news is if you're half decent behind the wheel, you won't need to buy it, because it'll be yours for free. No good at racing? Maybe stick to boosting vehicles from the Exotic Exports car list instead then. We're sure you'll have the money available to buy it in no time at all.

Once you've completed the weekly Prize Ride Challenge you need to simply return to the LS Car Meet and claim the car from the games Interaction Menu.

Just make sure you have left some space in your garage for the new car. Obviously, you only need one free garage slot available, but it's important to make sure you do this before trying to claim your reward.

Assuming you've made space, the car will be delivered to your garage immediately.
