It’s a short turnaround week for Corvette Racing and the Corvette C7.Rs as they head north of the border for the Mobil 1 Sports Car Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park after finishing P2 at Watkins Glen last Sunday.
And just because it’s the 4th of July weekend, don’t think for a moment that members of IMSA’s competition committee took the week off. Race organizers have issued a new Balance of Performance memo that directly, and exclusively, targets the Corvette C7.Rs.
The CTMP BoP Bulletin shows the Corvettes will have an additional 10kg (22 lbs) of weight added, bringing them up to 1250kg in total dry weight.
No other teams in GTLM had changes made to their BoP tables.
IMSA also made two changes in GTD, adding 20kg to the Acuras and four additional liters of fuel for the Lexus.
The Mobil 1 Sports Car Grand Prix presented by Acura begins at 1:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 7. It will air live on NBC beginning at 1 p.m. ET. Live audio coverage of practices, qualifying and the race from IMSA Radio is available on IMSA.com.
