Latest Updates to the LMGTE BoP and Success Ballast for Silverstone

LM GTE - 26/08/2019 - Jeff CARTER

The ELMS Committee has issued the updates for the LMGTE Balance of Performance and Success Ballast changes ahead of the 4 Hours of Silverstone.

The only changes to the Balance of Performance (BoP) since the last race in Barcelona last month is to reduce the minimum weight of the Porsche 911 RSR GTE and the Ferrari 488 GTE EVO by 15kg each. The result is the minimum weight of the Porsche is now 1235kg (from 1250kg) and the Ferrari 1270kg, down from 1285kg.  All of the other BoP criteria remain unchanged from the 4 Hours of Barcelona.

There are four cars at Silverstone that will be carrying success ballast. The 4 Hours of Barcelona winners, the no51 Luzich Racing Ferrari, will have to carry an extra 35kg for the British round of the championship.  This is made up of 15kg for the win in Spain, 5kg for the third place in Monza and 15kg for the first place in the championship after three races.

The no66 JMW Motorsport Ferrari and the no77 Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche will both be carrying an extra 25kg at Silverstone. 

The JMW Motorsport Ferrari is made up of 10kg from the second place in Spain, 10kg for the second place in Monza and 5kg for the championship position.

The Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche’s success ballast is made up of 15kg from the win at Monza and 10kg for the second place in the championship.

The no55 Spirit of Race Ferrari is the final car on the LMGTE grid at Silverstone to carry success ballast, with an extra 5kg for the team’s third place in Barcelona.

The 4 Hours of Silverstone is Round 4 of the 2019 European Le Mans Series.  Free practice is on Friday 30 August with qualifying and the race taking place on Saturday 31 August.
