I. Forward:
This guide was created to help you get the most Credit rewards in the least
amount of time for the PS3 game Gran Turismo 6.  The fastest way to earn Credits
is through a process called "grinding".  Grinding is basically re-running races
you have already completed in order to get the reward assigned to that race
multiple times.  This guide will show you which races give the MOST Credits
per minute of on-track time.  It will show you which races to grind, and which
ones to avoid.


II. About Me: 
I wanted to know how my time was best spent during Credit grinding.  What gives
the maximum amount of Credits for the minimum amount of track time?  Should I be
doing lots of short easy races, or longer more challenging races to get the most
efficient result?  I am by no means an expert GT6 driver, your times may vary. 
However, drivers of all skill levels will benefit from this guide. 
  

III. Methods: 
I completed every race and challenge, and made note of how long each race took 
to complete (track time).  I also made note of how many Credits were awarded for
a first-place finish.  I rounded the finish time to the nearest quarter-
minute. Then I took the Credits awarded and divided them by the rounded time.
The result is a "Credits Per Minute" (CPM) number.  Races with the highest "CPM"
numbers give you the greatest reward for the least amount of time spent on the 
track.  I didn't spend any time trying to find the perfect car or perfect setup
for each race, "good enough to win" was my standard. NOTE: All Credits listed
were earned with the 200% 5-day sign-in bonus in effect.


IV. Examples:
Look at the following races;
1) Novice: Amateur Cup- Brands Hatch Indy Circuit, 9,700 Credits for 1st
2) National B: 5 Minute Races- Circuito di Roma, 20,160 Credits for 1st
3) National A: Night Masters- Mount Panorama, 32,340 Credits for 1st

If you want to get the most Credits in the least amount of time on the track,
which one do you choose?  The answer is actually the first race.  Here's why;

Race 1) Time- 2:05, Credits awarded- 9,700,  Credits per Minute- 4,850
Race 2) Time- 5:47, Credits awarded- 20,160, Credits per Minute- 3,506
Race 3) Time- 7:53, Credits awarded- 32,340, Credits per Minute- 4,042

Okay, check these races out;
4) International B: British Lightweights- Matterhorn Dristelen, 85,600 for 1st
5) International A: Nascar Cup- Motegi, 169,200 for 1st
6) Super: Nurburgring 24-Minute Challenge- 614,000 for 1st

Same question, which one do you choose to get the most Credits for your time on
the track?  It's no contest, #5, here's why;

Race 4) Time-  3:47, Credits awarded-  85,600, Credits per minute- 22,826
Race 5) Time-  3:14, Credits awarded- 169,200, Credits per minute- 52,061
Race 6) Time- 28:24, Credits awarded- 614,000, Credits per minute- 21,543

Grinding the Nascar Motegi race earns you 52,061 CPM.  That's like earning 
enough Credits to buy a '14 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) for every minute
of track time!  Not only that, it's easy to win consistently.


V. About The Lists:
There are two lists.  The first will be which races give the most CPM from
highest to lowest.  The second will list the races in chronological in-game
order to make it easy for you to find a specific race, and check the CPM
number.  The second will also include championship race series stats (race 
series where you must commit to complete the entire championship to get "bonus
championship points").

You will notice that I don't list the following;
License Challenges, Coffee Break Challenges, Mission Races,
the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lunar Exploration, and the Red Bull Sebastian
Vettel X Challenge.  These races are not "grindable". They either award no
Credits, or award them only upon the first time they are completed.
                                
I also don't list Seasonal Events, as they change frequently and many times are
not grindable.

VII. Chronological In-Game Order CPM List
NOTE-Championship bonus points:  Some races can be part of a "championship".
That means when you select "Enter Championship" you are committed to finishing
all the races in that championship in order.  You can not suspend the 
championship and do other races, you can only exit out of the game completely
and resume where you left off.  You also don't have the option of starting
individual races over if you get off to a bad start.  This makes them a little
more risky for grinding.  This list details how much "extra credit" you get for
committing to the championships in CPM, as well as the combined total CPM number
(individual races plus championship bonus points divided by time on the track.)
Example- When you enter the Novice Championship you will complete all three 
races in it.  A first place finish in the championship will earn you 16,000
bonus Credits.  You will spend roughly 9 minutes of track time to complete the
entire championship.  That means you earn an extra 1,777 CPM for entering the
championship and winning.  If you place first in every race of that championship
and (obviously) win the championship, you will have earned a combined Credit
total of 45,140.  Divide that by 9 minutes and your combined total is 5,015 CPM.
