Regulation regarding the free car change

Here is a little explanation of how Kunos handles the new 2019 BOP.
With the 2019 ACC update, the new cars it introduced, and crucially the new 2019 versions of the tracks it has created a complicated situation with regards to car performance and competitiveness.
At the moment every car can join any online session, but depending on the version of the track that is joined the car may well have a different BOP (Balance Of Performance) applied to it:
  1. If a car that raced in 2018 joins a 2018 track it gets the real 2018 BOP applied (this is the situation we were in before the patch)
  2. If a car that raced in 2019 joins a 2019 track it gets the real 2019 BOP applied
  3. If a car that raced in both 2018 and 2019 joins a 2018 track it gets a real 2018 BOP, if it joins a 2019 track it gets a real 2019 BOP (this is the case for cars like the Ferrari, M6, 2018 Bentley)
  4. If a car that did not race in 2018 joins a 2018 track it gets an estimated 2018 BOP that Kunos applied (this would be the case if you raced the Audi Evo on a 2018 track)
  5. If a car that did not race in 2019 joins a 2019 track it gets an estimated 2019 BOP that Kunos applied (this would be the case if you raced the non-Evo Audi on a 2019 track)
After further testing, we have decided to use the new 2019 track BOP starting from Round 3 at Zolder.
As you read it, it is not mandatory to switch to a 2019 car because 2018 cars (and before like Lambo 2015) will have a custom BOP applied.
That also means, switching to 2019 BOP won’t count as a car change if the car raced both in 2018 and 2019 (Ex: Ferrari or M6)

Here is the list of what we consider a new car.
Any switch to one of these car, counts as a car switch.

This means switching from Audi 2018 to Audi 2018 Evo counts as a car switch and any more switch results in point reset.
Updated BOP from an older car does not count as a car switch.

If you want to change car, please notice it in the Car Selection Thread of your tier, and fill the template as usual.

The 720s is allowed, the list just show what is considered a new car, to make it easier if you keep your car or switch to the 2019 version (lexus->Lexus for example) of your car it's not a car switch but if you change the model it's a car switch (lambo->lambo Evo)

ok so pretty much most of the cars have a new variant, i didn't even know the Lexus did, hence by question with the Lexus appearing in line 15.

As I understand:

The Lexus just has an updated version with 2019 BOP. So if you stay with the lexus, you don't have to change anything as I understand.

The image with the list posed is just listing all of the cars as they are defined in the game. If the car you are driving is still the same number (like there is only one M6, so I'll still be on car #7) then its not a car change, if it has its own line (Audi Evo) then it is a car change.

It should be mostly obvious to all involved if its the same car they are running or not, but the list is just there so people can be certain. For example, the 2019 Ferrari actually does have a few minor physical changes compared to the 2018 version but its only in the list once, so is considered the same car.
