Risi Competizione’s Ferrari 488 GTE will head into next weekend’s Motul Petit Le Mans with added weight, in the final round of Balance of Performance adjustments for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

The GT Le Mans class contender has been given a 15kg minimum weight increase, in the only change made to the GTLM class for the season-ending round.

It comes after a strong showing for Toni Vilander and Giancarlo Fisichella in last weekend’s America’s Tire 250 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, which saw Vilander claim pole and narrowly miss out on the class win.

BoP changes, meanwhile, have also been made to the GT Daytona class, namely a 0.5mm air restrictor increase for the Mercedes-AMG GT3, and a subsequent fuel capacity (+3 liters) and refueling restrictor increase (+1mm) for the car as well.

Fuel capacity adjustments have also been made to the Acura NSX GT3 (-4 liters), BMW M6 GT3 (+2 liters) and Ferrari 488 GT3 (-3 liters) with corresponding refueling restrictor changes as well.
