The dreaded post Daytona IMSA Balance of Performance have been released. The Rolex 24 winning and dominate Cadillac DPi received special attention.
Beginning with the pre-12 Hours of Sebring test next week the Cadillac DPI-V.R. loses 1.5mm in restrictor space, 7 liters of fuel capacity and 2.5mm less on the refueling restrictor All the means less power along with more and longer pit stops.
Nissan's DPi also takes a hit on the refueling restrictor losing 2.0mm. Multimatic Riley, Onroak and Oreca all received additional refueling size. Both Cadillac and Mazda get a boost reduction.
All the three of the DPi teams will be running a sprint aero configuration during the Sebring test while the P2 cars will retain their FIA configuration.
In GTLM BMW gets to take off 10kg in weight, add 2 liters of fuel and gets an additional 3.5mm in the refueling restrictor but losses some boost. Porsche adds 4.5mm to its refueling restrictor.
GTD sees Acura losing 20kg while Ferrari adds 10kg in weight and loses some boost. Lamborghini adds 1.0mm to its restrictor, adds a liter of fuel and 0.5mm in the refueling restrictor. Lexus adds 10kg in weight but gets an additional 2.0mm in the restrictor, 2.0 liters in fuel and 2.0mm in the refueling restrictor.
We will see how this all shakes out next week at Sebring. IMSA has advised that further modifications of the Balance of Performance figures may result depending on Sebring test results.
