    Here you go. OP will be updated as needed.

    Changes:
    Vision Gran Turismo
    The “Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo” has been released. Experience the dynamic all wheel drive supercar that inherits the DNA of the Volkswagen sports GTI philosophy.

    After the update has been installed, the car can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in "My Home". Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the car by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.

    The “Volkswagen Vision GT” racing suit has been added to the [Special Outfits] page of the [Racing Gear] option within the [TUNING & SERVICING] section, accessible from "My Home". The suit can also be obtained from the corresponding Seasonal Events, available only for a limited time.

    Red Bull Ring
    The full and short track layouts of the "Red Bull Ring" have been added to the game. This is an ultra high speed circuit with long flat out sections and tricky tight corners in between. How you handle these tight turns will greatly affect your final lap time. In 2014, Formula 1 racing returned to this track after an 11 year hiatus; the circuit truly brings together the best of the old and the new.

    New vehicles have been introduced
    The following cars have been added to the [Dealerships] option within the [CARS] section of "My Home". You can also find those cars in the [Recommended Cars] option of the same section:

    • GT-R NISMO GT3 Nissan GT Academy Team RJN ‘13
    • Lexus IS F CCS-R ‘11
    • Toyota TS030 Hybrid ‘12

    Adjustments to the physics simulation model
    The physics simulation model of “Gran Turismo 6” has been updated with the following changes:

    (1) The dynamics of the car on surfaces with cornerstones and bumps have been improved;
    (2) The effect of the tyre geometry has been changed (mainly for the "Camber Angle" option);
    (3) The handling of some rear heavy cars has been improved;

    The default settings of the tuning parts have also been adjusted to match the above changes.

    Other cars adjustments
    On the various Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X models, it is now possible to enable the [Active Steering] under the [Driving Options] of the "Quick Menu".

    Other offline improvements and adjustments
    - [Data Logger] can now be opened from the "Quick Menu" of Time Trial events. Please note that only limited features will be available in this way. Please refer to the online manual for more details.
    - A [Reset to Default] option that returns the car to its showroom condition has been added under [Car Settings].
    - Signal Starts are now enabled on tracks with signals.

    Other online improvements and adjustments
    - A countdown is now displayed on the bottom right part of the Open Lobby screen, showing the time before an event starts and the time when the track voting ends.
    - The uploading time for both Drift Trials and Time Trials (Section) have been changed.

    *Please note that after the patch is installed, there may be up to a 30 minutes additional install time which may differ from what is displayed on screen. Thank you for your patience, and please enjoy the great new content!

    Major=Red : Minor=Green

    Unknown Changes:
    You can now see who is in the pits during a race.

    Small PP Calculation change

    Aerodynamic Calculation change

    Mini added to VGT Manufacturers

    Overall Force Feedback is now more dynamic, and it has a small dead zone. It is now easier to counter steer. However, the newer adjustments appear to be slightly bugged for the time being.
    Various text strings amended.

    Road Spray in wet conditions has been reworked for most courses

    New GTi Career Suit

    FR cars now have slightly lower top speeds.

    VGT cars are paintable, excluding the BMW and the Mercedes Benz VGT racing Series (1.08, but added to lower confusion)

    You can no longer zoom in on replays, unless in career mode.

    Grid starts in online mode now use the lights on the course to signal a race start.

    Willow Springs has more foliage

    Smoke is thinner

    Many cars have had their default settings changed to fit in with the updated physics.

    When racing online, you begin the race in interior view.


    The sunrise and sunset at Nurburgring 24HR is more dynamic/realistic.

    Bathurst runs at a slightly higher FPS now.

    Found by @Whistle Snap - Aston Martin and Subaru VGT credentials have been added.

    GUI Z-Fighting (Flickering) during a race occurs less often

    The ghost replay function works better, but in some cases, it must be manually activated by pressing ^ on the D-PAD (default button)

    What's with all the detailed physics notes? Is PD listening to the Q and A forum? Don't know if they have previously described patches like this as I always get info from here. The camber talk sounds promising

    Signal starts? Could that be the start of standing starts? Nice.

    To be honest I think people have glossed over the best part of this update:

    Gran Turismo 6 Hotfixes

    The following issues have been addressed:

    - Various strings of text have been amended.




    I bet whoever was working on that had fun.
