Dear Mr Kazunori Yamauchi,
I'm writing this post, as I have a major concern about the track model of Bathurst, Australia. As an avid Gran Turismo player since the release of GT1 on the PS1, and an owner of every release since, I was overjoyed when the Bathurst track was included in GT6. That joy was short lived when I took my first virtual drive around the track. As I came out of Forrest's Elbow, I noticed a huge tyre bollard protruding from the end of the wall. I was even more distressed by it when during my first race on the track, I hit it, and was sent spinning out of 1st place.
During your scanning sessions of the track, there may have been this tyre bollard, as there are occasional and rare races held in the opposite direction. For as many decades as I can remember watching the Bathurst 1000, the first time I had ever seen this was in GT6. To my dismay, this tyre bollard still appears in promotional videos for the Bathurst track in GT Sport.
I'm sorry to have to write this, but after that experience, I chose to get my Bathurst experience in another game. I was really looking forward to an improved experience within GT Sport, and I've been enjoying the demo/beta immensely. All I can do is ask that you please, for the sake of Australian Gran Turismo and Bathurst fans, remove that tyre bollard from the end of the Forrest's Elbow wall.

Here are some images taken from a comparison video of real life and GT6, the 2017 Bathurst 1000, and a GT Sport video.

I plead Guilty to have hit that one a few times as well... it's annoyingly in the wrong place.
Bathurt rocks, but without Brocky it's not the same
