IMSA has announced its Balance of Performance adjustments for the 2016 12 Hours of Sebring next month, with Corvette Racing’s Corvette C7.R receiving an additional 10 kilograms of weight and a 0.4mm smaller air restrictor, according to Sportscar365.
The BoP adjustments come as no surprise after the No. 4 C7.R of Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Marcel Fassler and No. 3 C7.R of Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Mike Rockenfeller took a dominant 1-2 finish at Daytona last month. The No.3 C7.R also set the fastest lap of the race at 1:44.012, while the No. 4 car was second with a lap of 1:44.563.
IMSA also made other BoP adjustments in the GTLM class, with the Ford GT receiving an additional 10 kg of weight and the Porsche 911 losing 10 kg. The Ford also got a maximum boost decrease, while the BMW M6 GTLM was permitted for a boost increase.
In the prototype category, it’s good news for Chevy’s Daytona Prototype, with IMSA giving it a 10 kg weight reduction and a 0.3mm larger air restrictor. The Daytona-winning Ligier JS P2 Honda, meanwhile, received a boost decrease.
The 2016 12 Hours of Sebring will go green on March 21st at 10:40 a.m.
