The Online Race specifications in 'Sport' mode have been reviewed and the following changes will be implemented from 17 January:
1. Regional Matchmaking for 'Daily Races' will return to 3 Regions.
Matchmaking for the 'Daily Races' had been separated into 5 Regions in a recent update, but these will now be returned to 3 Regions (Europe/Middle East/Africa, Americas, and Asia/Oceania).
However, please note that the matchmaking for the 'FIA Gran Turismo Championship' will continued to be separated into 5 Regions.
This change will come into effect from Thursday, 17 January.
2. Points earned on the last entered race of the same Round will now count for the Championships rankings.
Until now, the points earned on your best race result out of multiple races in the same Round were counted toward the player's Championships rankings. After this update, only the points earned in the last race a player participated in will count towards the rankings.
This change will come into effect from Wednesday, 30 January.
Thank you for your continued support and please continue to enjoy Gran Turismo Sport!
