they changed it because they can to improve the game but obviously fixing for someone is breaking it for someone else

Well actually it does matter to me yes,anyone who,s tried the AMG academy challenges understands that its not going to be a one time attempt and pass you have got to learn when to break,what line to take etc etc before you start shaving seconds of the target time and that was the fun part for me trying to get that elusive extra second of pace,it used to be the same with the seasonal challenges,my motto is if it ain,t broke don,t fix it,making the moral choice of using a 500bhp monster against 200bhp opponents is a matter of will power correct,why don,t they go the whole hog and make all the other challenges unrestricted,if i wanted a really easy kids game i would have gone out and bought a Bugs Life.

In answer to the OP, I don't honestly know but perhaps it had something to do with the other races. From what I best recall there are few tyre, power and weight restrictions out there, yes the challenges have restrictions but I personally found the seasonals to be races as opposed to challenges. Perhaps they were just making the seasonals similar and more open to everyone.
As has been pointed out, no one is forced to outclass the competition as everyone is capable of exercising their will and matching the field or not as they wish. Much like anyone can do for many of the A-spec races were it is often very easy to outclass the competition. If as you claim you actually do choose your vehicle and set-up to match the field then your query seems superflous at best, for the change appears to have had no earthly impact on your game play.
What you appear to be doing is not asking a question but using it as a smokescreen for complaining about how others might play. Demonstrating some form of elitism and making your enjoyment of the game a function of how others play it. Griping that the peasants who have not or perhaps cannot invest the same time and effort as you do yet still have a chance at winning is just that, griping. You likely are of the opinion that there should be no saves in Endurance races; if the player can't do an entire twenty-four hour stint then they don't deserve to win. Saves would diminsh the achievement. Heck, even the topic title is heavy with contempt for any of those dumb folk who don't play as you would. Why do the racing methods of the less skillful or casual matter to you? Are they to be denied fun and what may well still be a rewarding challenge to them just because you feel diminished? Does PD only wish to sell to a select few or have a more expansive audience? GT has always had a strong element of being as challenging as you make it and this seems no different. If how others play matters to you then it is you who has the problem and well, that's tough.
"So you don,t actually know fine,by the way im not actually getting "highrate"I think the word you ment was 'irrate'"
Seriously, if you are going to stoop to correcting another users use of the language then please at least ensure that your own post is not filled with errors.

the seasonals are now a way to grind cash and XP with different scenery.
if you want a real challenge and an opportunity to show how good you are, do the drift and time trials.
those do have restrictions and on line ranking and are a true representation of how you compare to the rest of the world (I compare badly in the trials but then I have all the other races and seasonals to race for pure fun)
