What was last year's GTA Online Summer Update?

Last year, we saw the arrival of the Los Santos Tuners DLC. This came with a handful of new characters, races, events, and tonnes of extra content. Generally, we can expect this year's update to be of a similar scale.

If this is the case, we're in for an interesting summer filled with fun new events.
