New BoP on Eve of Le Mans Gives Weight Breaks to All in Class but the Corvette C7.Rs


Organizers of the 24 Hours of Le Mans have tweaked the Balance of Performance tables on the eve of the 24-hour French Classic. Although the Corvette C7.Rs BoP was unchanged, it’s hard to say right now if that’s something we should be happy about.

The FIA has slowed the GTE-Pro class pole sitter with the Aston Martin Vantage GTEs receiving a turbo boost reduction through all RPM levels. However, they also received a 5 kg weight reduction as well.

In addition, the FIA also made weight reductions with Porsche, Ford, and Ferrari all receiving the same 5 kg (11 pounds) reduction in weight.

Autosport is also saying that the Aston Martin’s were hit with a two-liter reduction in fuel capacity as organizers try to limit the cars to 14-lap stints during green flag racing.

The No. 63 Corvette C7.R qualified 3rd in GTE-Pro with the No.95 Aston Marting taking the pole and P2 went to the No. 67 Ford. The No. 64 Corvette C7.R will start P11 in the 17-car GTE-Pro class.

  1. They can stick that BoP crap where the sun doesn’t shine ! Let’s have real racing, and stop playing politics.
    If the Corvettes start winning too many races, the ACO/FIA people start rolling their eyes, and put restrictions on the Corvettes, INSTEAD of having the other manufactures step up THEIR game !!
