WEC / 8 H. of Bahrain - Which BoP for the GTE Am class ?
After yesterday's Hypercar, it's time for the GTE Am. And yes, it's not just the Performance Balance of the top class that has been modified. As is the case at almost every race, the GTE Am Performance Balance has also been modified.
This is a category which will compete for the last time next Saturday, at the 2023 edition of the 8 Hours of Bahrain, the closing round of the eleventh WEC season. So what are the changes?
The Aston Martin Vantage AMR's fuel capacity has been increased by two litres, while turbo boost pressure has been increased by 0.04. The fuel tank capacity of the C8.R - which has already enabled Corvette Racing and the Catsburg-Keating-Varrone trio to secure the Teams' and Drivers' titles - has been reduced by 2 litres, while the diameter of the American car's air restrictor has been revised downwards by 0.6 mm.
On the other hand, the Ferrari 488 GTE EVO and the Porsche 911 RSR-19 remain unchanged.
