Open Wheel Racing has been given a huge boost by Rockstar Games in a new GTA Online update, with another F1 car landing on the Diamond Casino’s Lucky Wheel rewards podium once again. We’ve got the patch notes, too. 

Grand Theft Auto 5 is never short of new content and this is just the latest example of that, not to mention the massive Summer Special refresh that added over a dozen new vehicles earlier in August.

Now, though, players will be jumping into races in bigger numbers than usual. With rewards boosted and even more cash up for grabs; Who wouldn’t want to get involved?


These patches are rolled out every Thursday, typically bringing a number of discounts on some of the most expensive weapons and vehicles. This week is no different, either.

GTA Online update patch notes: Racing bonuses

The Progen PR4 will be familiar to GTA players already. In fact, some may already have won one on the Lucky Wheel. It’s back.

Popular Rockstar leaker TezFunz2 released early patch notes information on August 27, confirming the Progen PR4 F1 car had once again returned to the Casino.

This means that with just one spin of the Lucky Wheel, you could be rolling out of the game’s biggest gambling hub with a car worth an impressive $3.5 million.

Other details included boosted bonuses for VIP Work and Challenges, Motorcycle Club work, Biker Contract missions, and a few big price drops for executive homes.

As seen in the tweet above, which was accompanies by several other posts on the update, there will also be triple GTA cash and RP rewards for Open Wheel Races.

This is expected to start on August 27 and end on September 3, so jump into an F1 car as many times as you can before that deadline comes around.
