IMSA has set the Balance of Performance for next month’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, in what will be the first race of the season utilizing the sanctioning body’s season-long BoP.

Released on Wednesday, the tables are reflective of changes since last year’s season-ending Motul Petit Le Mans due to the event-specific BoP IMSA implemented for Daytona.

The majority of DPi cars, however, are facing slight power reductions compared to this year’s season-opener, with the exception of the Cadillac DPi-V.R, which maintains its 31.9 mm air restrictor.

The Mazda RT24-P, meanwhile, will be 10kg heavier and face a two-liter reduction in fuel capacity for Sebring.

LMP2 cars remain unchanged, with the exception of a slight adjustment in the minimum rear wing flag angle of the Oreca 07 Gibson compared to the specification it ran in the Florida 24-hour classic.

The Ferrari 488 GTE has been given both a weight break and power increase for Sebring, with the Prancing Horse set to run 15kg lighter than in Daytona.

In addition to several other weight and power adjustments in the GT Le Mans class, IMSA has also established the starting BoP in GT Daytona, which includes four all-new or Evo packages for 2019.

The entry list for the second round of the Michelin Endurance Cup is slated to come out next week.
