IMSA Sets Balance of Performance (BoP) for the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona


Last week, IMSA released the latest Balance of Performance tables for all classes participating in the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway. The good news for Corvette Racing is that the only change is the setting of the refueling restrictors.

The last set of BoP regulations set the field for the Roar Before the 24 Test earlier this month. After reviewing the data from that test weekend, IMSA has issued the new tables which will govern compeititors for the race set for the weekend of January 28-29th.

Other than revising the Ferrari 488 GTE turbo boost tables, IMSA’s changes for GTLM focused on the rear wing angles as well as fuel tank capacity and refueling restrictors. The restrictors govern how fast fuel can flow into the race car’s gas tank. The Refueling Restrictors were all to be determined following the Roar and Corvette Racing had their refueling restrictors set for 27.5 mm.

You can see all the changes in the Balance of Performance tables below:
