    Here’s the news article for it: https://www.gran-turismo.com/au/news/00_8604785.html

    No new track. Guess they didn’t have time for one possibly OR Spa was going to be the revealed track but then complications have resulted in it not being included this update.

    Either way, nice to see the new cars. Will have to grab a Super Formula when the maintenance finishes

    It should be noted that the title of the trailer says 'Additional Free Update - March 2019' as opposed to the 'Free Update - March 2019'. This is a supplementary update to the previous one, therefore explaining why no additional course is added.

    Though we will have to wait till likely end of April for the next track. If any.

    4. Brand Central
     - “Super Formula” has been added to the Asia-Pacific region lineup.
     
    5. Museum
     - The "Super Formula" section has been added to Brand Central.

    6. Physics Simulation Model
     - A number of vehicle types are now able to utilise an "Overtaking System" to assist with overtaking during a race. You can map the "Overtake" to any button on the controller by going into the [Controllers] settings in the Options menu. Please see the "Overtaking System Information" section below for specific details regarding these new functionalities in-game (as of Update 1.36).

    7. Options
     - "Overtake" functionality has been added. This can be mapped to a controller button.

    8. Lobby
     - "Overtaking System Usage Time Multiplier" option has been added to the "Settings" menu of the Custom Race.

    9. Downloadable Content (DLC)
     - Cars priced from 200,000 Cr. to 1,000,000 Cr. in-game can can now be purchased through the PlayStation™Store.

    Overtaking System Information
    - Increased Engine Output:
     ・Super Formula Dallara SF19 Super Formula / Honda '19
     ・Super Formula Dallara SF19 Super Formula / Toyota '19

    - Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS)
    Consumes kinetic energy stored in batteries, etc. to provide power assistance using a motor. Activating “Overtake” will provide the maximum power assistance rate:
     ・Dodge SRT Tomahawk X Vision Gran Turismo
     ・Dodge SRT Tomahawk GTS-R Vision Gran Turismo
     ・Dodge SRT Tomahawk S Vision Gran Turismo
     ・INFINITI CONCEPT Vision Gran Turismo
     ・LEXUS LF-LC GT “Vision Gran Turismo”
     ・NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo
     ・Toyota Toyota FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo

    - Drag Reduction System (DRS)
    Uses moving wings to reduce air resistance during operation. This was previously performed automatically, but is now a manual function. Additionally, the DRS can only be activated while in an overtaking zone:
     ・McLaren P1 GTR
     ・Mercedes-AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ 2017
     ・Mercedes-AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ (Color Variation) 2017

    Other Improvements and Adjustments
    - Fixed an issue wherein with the transmission set to [Manual], the gear shifts could be performed faster when using a H-pattern shifter in manual-clutch mode than with a paddle shift or Wireless Controller. (The following controller were affected: Thrustmaster TH8A Add-On Shifter, Thrustmaster TH8 RS Shifter, Logitech Driving Force Shifter, Fanatec ClubSport Shifter SQ);
    - Fixed an issue in "Sport" mode wherein forced Time Penalties wouldn’t function correctly in the automated penalty zone;
    - When performing a gear change using an H-pattern shifter and clutch, and with the transmission set to [Manual], a grinding sound effect will now be played when the revs are not matching;
    - Various other issues have been addressed.

    Thank you for your continued support and please continue to enjoy Gran Turismo Sport!

    I suspect it’s like Formula 1, they’ll be designated DRS zones for every circuit - almost always on a straight of some sort. Usually back/main straights, but these days there’s often two or even three DRS zones on some tracks, which means you find them on other straights besides the back/main straight.

    Yeh, just took the W08 and a Tomahawk for a quick test.

    It seems that KERS only cars have an "overtake" HUD symbol, and you can use it at any stage anywhere on track, and the symbol doesn't change colour unless you push the button.
    Cars with KERS and DRS don't have "overtake", but instead a "DRS" symbol.
    This is transparent until you reach an overtaking zone where it changes to solid white, and then flashes red when in use.

    There are no track markers designating these zones that I could see.
    The DRS seems to be triggered at almost any speed (if on the right part of the track) provided you are at 3/4 throttle or better.
    As for the right part of track, I had a quick squirt around Monza.
    Almost any straight will do, even the short section between the 2 Lesmos.

    Can you actually configure the DS4 to have the DRS/KERS button? It didnt seem possible when it asked me to do it for the SF19 races.

    Yep. :tup:
    I went to Options > Controllers and assigned "overtake" to R3 before I tried a Custom race with the DS4.

    Have they fixed the bug of 45 Dip - Lizzie's Balloon always being the first song that plays? It's annoying me more than I thought it would.

    In the post you wrote '1.39' before listing the changelog, instead of '1.36'

    Weird that the modern LMP cars don't have KERS...
