I wonder how tuning affects this at all? I know it says there's BOP, but will having for example turbos installed affect the power curve? If I stick a wing and a splitter on my Miata (like I see some on the leaderboards doing), do I get the downforce benefits for doing so still? Or does the game just brute force equal performance regardless of what you have equipped?

Looks like tuning is forbidden so it will force the car to stock and also apply the BoP parameters (barring any possible exploits which hopefully they've patched out).

Do these races affect DR and SR?
Yes, they do.

I was hoping for what we had in Road to GT7 which was BoP with open setups. That allows people to overcome some of the cars' inherit weaknesses. But since it now appears that setups are tied to PP, BoP essentially eliminates the possibility of using setup sheets. In the process we lost brake balance.

Losing brake balance is a mixed bag. On the one hand it could even up the BoP. On the other hand, it could prevent us from dialing in a car to our driving style. And with the stingy credits it's going to be impossible to try out all the cars to see how we like them with BB welded to zero.

I already signed for Subaru, anyway. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Agreed, I think it's a negative overall so hopefully it returns, some cars are fun to drive but need a little tweak to make them a bit more race consistent or user friendly.

I've signed for Honda, as always, but the NSX Gr3 turns in a bit too well sometimes :boggled: a quick -2 brake balance adjustment makes it my favourite car in the game though.

Kudos to you for signing with an "unpopular" car. I don't care about meta cars or anything like that. I am disappointed that setups are prohibited since that could allow you to bypass brake bias and set up the car for your driving style. But oh well, since GT Sport it seems we have taken a step forward and two steps back.

But these championships are great fun either way. I'll have fun with my WRXs with or without BB.

For Nation Cup when you want to enter it is written something like « if you enter you cannot change « why? I can understand for Manufacturer because you cannot change of manufacturer, why for Nation...then I didn t try...waiting for an explanation before😕

Probably because every race is with the Miata. And given that message I bet they give you the car. This must be to calm the rage over the stingy credits and having to buy everything for Sport Mode.

When competing in these championships you also so do it in one of the DR based leagues, GT1-GT3, and the league you are in is locked for the duration of the season.

That might be the part that they're informing you can't change after signing up for Nation's.

Yes you could be right. I got the message that I would be locked in because of my DR in Manufacturers, in addition to the warning that I was going to sign a Manufacturer contract. It must have been the league level that he was referring to.

About the GTWS 2022 Nations Cup in the Miata...

It says qualifying time is "7 minutes" for 7 laps... So less than a minute per lap...

But I checked the "Top 10 stars" leaderboard and the best 1-lap time in the world (right now) is 1:10.518...

Please ELI5??? Or just tell me git gud

They're certainly keeping it simple to start! I guess it truly is a test season. It'll be interesting to see how the new "leagues" work. What purpose do they really serve when everything is done in splits anyway?

The 7 minutes is qualifying, and 7 laps is the race. They're separate.

Are you saying 7 minutes is the qualifying time for a single lap??? Or how many laps? Can you please elaborate? I am new please

Sure I heard the BB thing was a bug that was meant to be fixed. Can’t believe it’s still here after yesterday.
Think I’ll sit all these out. I don’t know any of the tracks apart from one and with such a quick turnaround I won’t have the time to learn them well enough.
Do dailies carry on as normal when these cups are happening? Only started playing this year.

@jsydave Might as well move to this thread here
Is the timing of these races new for this iteration? I would have been able to do the very latest races in a day after, say 9:30pm, but with the final races being held at 8pm this part of the game is now inaccessible to me without reorganising my life to a heavy degree. Not going to change my life sure, but it's a minor disappointment having enjoyed the GTS FIA events.
Yeah races were spread out more previously but with one hour gaps, the time slots end earlier. It could change as it's only a test season and the races are pretty short right now so maybe with longer races we could get a wider spread of time slots

It says tuning is prohibited but there are people on the leaderboard with wide bodies & wings!

Looks like the NSX is clearly the best choice and whoever that person is had to use an OP car to set the best time.
V.Gallo is one of the world tour drivers, he's even in the game as one of the 'characters' you race in the world circuit events and 'chat' to going through the cafe books so although his time is the fastest i wouldn't say its a good judge of what is the best car for everyone else.

Dailies carry on, they're separate from the championships.

If you want to get in on the real championships that are coming later, it's a good idea to do these test ones as a trial run sort of thing just to see how they work.

They don't work the same way as dailies do, in that you have an actual qualifying session together with everyone else on track where you try to set a fast lap, then a warmup session, then the actual race starts. You can participate in any of the timeslots available and you can go again even though you've completed one race already, but crucially only the last result counts as your result for that round, not your best one. So don't throw away a good result :)

So if I were you I'd use this opportunity to get a feel for how this all works before doing it for real later.

Edit
I don't think BB is a bug, it's an oversight since it's now counted as part of settings/tuning.
