"Close your eyes, breathe in deep, and go to your happy place. Is there an ambience more soothing than waves gently lapping at your chassis, gentle breezes whispering through your air intake, and the violent explosion of your PR4's oxidized carbon-carbon disk brakes? Lap race for open wheel cars."
―Race description.

New Wave is an Open Wheel Race featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the continuation of The Diamond Casino Heist update, released on February 27, 2020, during the Open Wheel Races Week. It is available for up to 16 players.


The race is a 32 checkpoint long Lap race, default to 10 laps. The pit lane is located between the start and checkpoint 2.

The race starts on the pit straight on the south portion on the track. When the race starts, the players race northwest until coming to a 90-degree left-hander, followed by two 90-degree right-handers and a long left-hand corner. They then come to another right-hand corner and a left kink.

The track then takes them down a very long right-hand sweeper circling around the El Gordo Lighthouse, followed by a left-hand sweeper and a tighter right-hand turn. They then race through some fast speed esses and a sweeping left-hand turn, followed by a right hairpin and two additional corners.

The racers then make their way down a short straight, followed by a left-hand sweeper, four 90-degree corners – one left and two right ones – and another left-hand turn. They race down a straight and through a fast chicane, followed by a long right-hand sweeper and another left-hander, which leads them to the pit straight, where the start/finish line is located.
