Gran Turismo Sport update 1.61 adds new sticker, adjusts balance for slipstream real setting

Polyphony Digital has released update 1.61 for Gran Turismo Sport today, and it is a small update that does not make too many significant changes. The main feature is the addition of the Pilot Sport logo from Michelin tires. The other changes are a nondescript issues addressed point, and some balance adjustments for the real slipstream setting. That is all and you can read the full list of the very short patch notes directly below.

Main Features Implemented

1. Livery Editor
– The Pilot Sport logo from Michelin’s high-performance sports tires is now available. To access the new tire sticker, select “Wheel” and “Tire Sticker” (Standard Sticker) in the Livery Editor.

Other Improvements and Adjustments

– Balance adjustments have been made to the slipstream setting “Real.”
– Various other issues have been addressed.

Last month update 1.60 was released for GT Sport and the notes for those were:

– We repaired an issue with the MAZDA RX-VISION GT3 CONCEPT where the engine sound changed when applying the car settings or Balance of Performance (BOP) in Regulation Settings on an oval track.
– Various other issues have also been addressed.

During the PS5 event in June there was confirmation that Gran Turismo 7 was in development, though it had been leaked by Next Level Racing which we reported on . The official description for Gran Turismo 7 reads:
