On April 6th, IMSA issued a technical bulletin update for the Balance of Performance tables in GTLM ahead of this Saturday’s Bubba Burger Sports Car Grand Prix in Long Beach.

There were no changes for Corvette Racing or most of the other competitors in GTLM. The changes specifically addressed BWM with the M8 having their boost tables updated as well as receiving a reduction in fuel capacity to 93.0 liters.

The most current BoP table for GTLM can be seen here:

No Changes for Corvette Racing in Balance of Performance (BoP) Update for Long Beach


Corvette Racing has been off the pace of the class leaders in the first two races of 2018. The team was dead last in speed at Daytona but improved to be in the middle of the pack at Sebring (although both C7.Rs were nearly a half-second off the leader’s fastest lap). But now with a street course, the C7.Rs may have more of a fighting chance. The team has won six out of the last 11 races at Long Beach and as usual, it will come down to a great pit stop and a bit of luck.

Remember Tommy Milner’s win last year? Start it at 1:47 to watch the final two minutes:


The Bubba Burger Sports Car Grand Prix at Long Beach will air live at 4 pm ET on FOX.

  1. It is unfortunate that no BoP was issued in Corvette Racing’s favor. It is very obvious to C7R fans that the cars are considerably off the pace. If not for brilliant pit stops they would be in back of the pack. Wake up IMSA or let them race the ZR1 package!
