    Is this a hint of a future update and they've messed up with today's dailies by accidently releasing it?! Upon entering the race at Nurburgring GP it gives a notification "There are no cars which comply with the regulations". An interesting mistake!

    They are just trying to force players to play crash fest races, just look at the schedule for the past few days. Probably so they have a ton of chaos footage to see how they can "fix" the penalty system. Must not have worked well enough though so now the one race that might not be too bad has no cars that are eligible for it. :dopey:

    Yep, no Gr.A cars in the game. So unless it's changed to something else no one can race there.

    My guess is this is an internal race list that got pushed to us by mistake. The "GR" in all caps instead of the normal "Gr" says to me either manual entry in that field, or some placeholder name used for testing internally.

    Yep, confirmed. It is now Gr.4, same event location and settings. Mistake in Gr. name entry or mistake of an early reveal of things to come?

    Guess we had a text-happy intern set that one up.

    Ok now we know some secret. PD internally use pen and paper to write down the events everyday and pass to somebody to input to the system. Today the hand writing is too ugly and the data entry person mis-read the letter “4” as “A”.

    This is not a joke.

    It could very well be hint of what's to come because Gr.A was actually found in the code as text. Along with Gr.2, which is for Super GT.

    - sample of Group A racing in Japan
    I wouldn't mind if it was Group A rally cars, but we don't even have much use for the Current Group B rally cars as daily race events for them are rare.

    Are we sure Gr. A would be rally? Upon a Google search, wikipedia said GrA had rally and GrA touring cars.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, I don't know anything about Group A irl

    Basically yes.

    A lot of motorsport was raced under Group A rules in the 80s and 90s, be it WRC, DTM, JTCC or BTCC

    When it was first discovered the class order was:

    Gr.1
    Gr.2
    Gr.3
    Gr.4
    Gr.A
    Gr.B
    Gr.X

    I'm guessing Group A is the top offroad class, or maybe a road racing class older or lower than Group 4.
