Corvette Racing Hit By BoP at Le Mans After Finishing Quickest at Test


Additional changes have been made to the Balance of Performance (BoP) tables following Sunday’s official testing session for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and those changes hit Corvette Racing right where it hurts…the restrictor plates.

Prior to the testing session, the air restrictors were lowered on the Chevrolet Corvette C7.Rs from its IMSA BoP of 29.5mm (x2) down to 29.1mm. Following the full day test session at Le Sarthe where Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia recorded the fastest time in LMGTE Pro with a lap of 3:55.122, the new BoP calls for a further reduction of 0.3mm for the the C7.Rs air restrictors.
