After a tell-tale period of brief server maintenance, the Balance of Performance within Gran Turismo Sport has been updated this morning.
The BoP tweaks affect four of the Gr.4 machines, three of which are front-wheel drive and one all-wheel drive.
In races where tyre wear is a factor, the front-wheel-drive vehicles suffer more than rear-wheel drive opponents, so generally, they are quicker in a straight-line to compensate somewhat. These changes look to even things out further, as sometimes the rocket-ship performance is a race craft advantage.
We’ve listed all the changes below, but the main takeaway is that the Audi, Peugeot and Volkswagen have all had a reduction in power and an increase in weight. Meanwhile, the Mazda has also had its wings clipped by a reduction in power, but remains on the same weight.
One of this week’s current Daily Races in GT Sport is around Suzuka in any Gr.4 of your choice, so expect the performance of these four vehicles to be less competitive in Race C.
