Following the Roar at the 24 test session held earlier in the month, IMSA’s competition committee went to work on analyzing all the data collected and they have now handed down the final Balance of Performance (BoP) adjustments to the teams ahead of Saturday’s Rolex 24 at Daytona.

For Corvette Racing, the BoP adjustments are favorable for the team’s new mid-engine racecars that are making their racing debut at the Rolex 24. The C8.Rs received a +0.33mm air restrictor increase for additional airflow and an additional 5.0 liters of fuel capacity. The C8.8s will race this weekend with an air restrictor that is now 44.3mm and the cars will carry 94.0 liters of fuel.

IMSA’s competition committee also made BoP adjustments to two of the three other competitors in GTLM:

The Ferrari 488s received a reduction in its turbo boost tables, a +4.0 degree increase in its rear wing to create more downforce, and it lost -1.0L of fuel capacity for a total of 87.0L.

Porche’s 911 RSR was handed +10kg of additional weight and +7.0L of fuel capacity. The car is now running at a 1280kg minimum weight and has 97.0L of fuel.

No changes were made to the BMW M8s.

  1. Balance of Performance? How about minimum weight, maximum fuel (and same type) and “Run whatcha Brung”

  2. @Ronnie Surely you realize that “run whatcha brung” is not sustainable? It’s beeen tried over and over again.
