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.
