GTA Online Update: Races, Discounts, and the Drauger

The information was provided by the reliable tipster and leaker Tez2, who had taken to Twitter to unveil all of the new races, events, and features that will take off in GTA Online this week.

The Cayo Perico races have officially been released at the time of writing this post for GTA Online and are available for all players to enjoy.

The races are pretty varied as you’ll get to race not only on land vehicles but in the sea and in the air, which is a welcome addition to GTA Online.

Players will get the chance to participate in 4 Land races and 1 Bike Race. In addition, users will get to enjoy 2 stunt races along with 1 sea race. You’ll also get to race airplanes in 2 Air races.

Along with it, players will be able to purchase the all-new sleek and stylish off-road vehicle, the Drauger, which can house 4 players at a time. The Drauger is available for purchase for the steep price of 1.4 million to 1.87 million dollars.

It’s not cheap, but it looks pretty awesome, and there are probably loads of customization options available for it over at Los Santos Customs and Hao’s Workshop. If you obtain the new ride, you’ll get the Grey Yeti Cap along with new clothing that’ll be available soon this week.

But that’s not all. Players will also get a chance to participate in a brand new event for GTA Online. You can now gain access to the Buried Stashes event. Players have been promised some sweet rewards for finding the buried stashes but jumpstarting the event isn’t all that easy. You’ll have to first find the Metal Detector Random Event to start things off.
