    Hi there. Im new to the GT series and so far Im enjoying GT Sport. But there is one thing that is really frustrating is that when other players bump your car, you will also get SR deduction. I was driving cleanly the whole lap until I started getting shoved off the track by other players just to get hit by a wall and still I get minus SR. Im now at C and I need to know how to increase my SR. Hope to get a reply soon. Thanks

    In any car-to-car contact, both cars receive SR/time penalties.

    Avoid being hit and you won't get penalties.

    That seems a little hard. But any tips that I should know about?

    Yeah dude. I was at B rank. Everything was going fine at that Nascar track. All of a sudden everyone starting hitting everyone and from that 1 match I became a C rank

    I could have told you that. It's 20 years of playing Gran Turismo and using AI cars to bounce your way into a corner. It's a habit that is really hard to break for most. The worst is the game still allows you to do that without any penalties. The person initiating the contact should have their car damage enough that they won't do it again. The trouble is that it's not easy to write an algorithm that can determine who is the initiator.

    This is ultimately what will be the demise of GT:S until all the casual moves up to other game, public lobbies are going to be a wreck fest.

    Ovals are the SR's worst nightmare.

    Agree. Thats what happened in the beta too. Until there was go kart and I managed to farm back my SR rank
