As points are accrued, success ballast increases.
SUPER GT uses an entertaining weight handicap system.

The fact that faster machines win is simply the natural course of events, but if the same machine always wins, interest in the races starts to fade. That is why the SUPER GT series has employed a system of weight handicaps. The more championship points a car earns, the heavier it is made, cutting its competitiveness.
