Here’s some good news for Corvette Racing fans!

Last week IMSA confirmed changes to the Balance of Performance (BoP) tables in advance of this weekend’s Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park.

Corvette Racing as never seemed to be the quickest car in GTLM this year, but the team continues to find ways to score points. After a couple of disappointing races where the C7.Rs were very much off the GTLM pace, IMSA officials have granted a 0.2mm larger air restrictor as well as a 1-liter fuel capacity increase and a 1.5mm larger refueling restrictor.

BMW, which has won two consecutive races, saw a reduction in its turbo boost tables across the board and will also have 1-liter of fuel capacity cut.

The Ford GT will get a 0.5mm increase in its refueling restrictor while the Porsche 911 RSR will have there refueling restrictor reduced by 1.0mm.

Here is the official technical bulletin from IMSA.com:

  1. This is great news as the two cars never had quite the pace of the Germans or the Fords. They have a great tech team and pit team, so Corvette Racing has managed to keep things close, but I feel they we being held back too much with the restrictions imposed on the cars. Thankfully IMSA has realized this and given back some performance.
