GTA Online Weekly Bonuses Preview – available 3rd August 2023

The Summer Racing Event is now over!

This week and until the 9th August, Lamar is offering extra for helping him with extra work, including with his Lowrider crew! Hop on your Taxi for big bonuses on delivering passengers, help out Ron Jakowski for an extra, meet up with Franklin and Lamar on Short Trips and throw people you (dis)like off platforms for extra rewards in Sumo Remix, and more!

Remember this is just a preview, and information may change. On top of that, Rockstar may reserve things for their own Newswire.

We understand that not every Event Week will be to everyone’s liking, some will certainly be more exciting than others, but anyway…

Let’s get started!

Lamar wants your help – in present and in past! Ron wants some too

It’s been a while since Lamar Davis has been in enough of a pickle that he’s willing to pay extra for your work! Unless you’ve been paying him to call muggers on other unsuspecting players, friends or foes, of course – but he still wants help. Alongside that, Lamar has been quite reminiscent about the past, as has Franklin, so they’re getting together to smoke a joint and remember the good times, with bonuses on Short Trips.

Lamar hasn’t forgotten the Lowrider crew either – meet up with them for bonuses on Lowrider Missions as well.

Meanwhile, Ron Jakowski has heard about these offers and he’s willing to offer players bonus payment for helping him out with some pressing issues.

Starting this week, until 9th August:

  • 2x GTA$ and RP on Short Trips (find Franklin and Lamar at Record A Studios!)
  • 3x GTA$ and RP on all Lamar Contact Missions incl. Lowriders
  • 3x GTA$ and RP on all Ron Contact Missions

Downtown Cab Co. feeling generous, and some vehicular destruction is on the menu

Downtown Cab Co. has recently seen a surge in demand, which means they got some extra money to pay their biggest and oldest employees. As a corporation should – don’t do pay cuts, that’s lame.

If you’re not feeling like helping folks get to their destinations, Sumo Remix will be offering extra to stay on top, stay on the platforms as everyone else falls to their inevitable demise either over land or water.

As such, this week, find:

  • 3x GTA$ and RP on Taxi Work
  • 2x GTA$ and RP on Sumo Remix

    The Diamond Casino & Resort Lucky Wheel

    Ah, the American wilderness. From the massive mountains of Colorado, to the plains in Texas, to Mount Chiliad in San Andreas, folks around the state keep thinking about what to use to traverse them. Some are big fans of the classics (or variants of them), like Felipe who was reportedly jumping with joy when he saw this Lucky Wheel vehicle coming into storage to be put up this week.

    Indeed, starting 3rd August and until the 9th, find the Declasse Drift Yosemite to win at the wheel, you just need to win. Easy, right? Right.

      LS Car Meet Prize Ride

      Meanwhile at the LS Car Meet, racers wind down from the Summer Racing Event, but a new car is about to make it onto the Prize Ride Slamtruck. Not quite its 80’s classic version, instead its 2010’s version, but it’s equally loved within the Car Meet. After all that’s what brings everyone together inside – cars.

      This week, place Top 2 in LS Car Meet Series races two days in a row to win the Grotti Turismo R.

      At the Test Track, you can find the following rides to well… test, or buy as appropriate:

      • Bravado Greenwood (also 30% off)
      • Pfister Comet SR
      • Karin Calico GTF (this one drifts!)

      If you’re on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series, Hao will have something for you as usual – this week and until the 9th, find the Coil Cyclone II HSW, all for you. Electric speedy goodness – don’t be fooled by it being electric instead of mechanic.

      Premium Deluxe Motorsport

      This week at PDM, Simeon’s scored some more vehicles, but no unique liveries this time. Can’t be every week, Simeon. He however does have a couple of the discounted cars:

      • Schyster Deviant (also 50% off)
      • Vapid Peyote Gasser (also 40% off)
      • Invetero Coquette
      • Declasse Tulip M-100
      • Vapid Blade

      Luxury Autos

      If you’re dropping by Record A to solicit some memories in the form of Short Trips from Franklin and Lamar, you may notice these across the road!

      • Declasse Vigero ZX
      • Bravado Buffalo EVX

      Time Trials and Premium Races

      Across the state, either weekly or daily, San Andreas residents and otherwise can find places to test their driving, biking or RC driving skills, and get money for it! Enter Time Trials – have you got the skills for them?

      If you’re *really* insistent in showing your driving skills, you also have Premium Races available for extra money versus regular Races.

      This week, available for you, find:

      • Muscle Premium Race: Down the Drain
      • Regular Time Trial: Casino
      • HSW Time Trial: North Chumash to Palomino Highlands
