IMSA has established the Balance of Performance for this weekend’s Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring in what is effectively a slightly revised starting BoP for the remainder of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

Released last week, the new table comes in the wake of event-specific BoP for both the Rolex 24 at Daytona and WeatherTech 240 due to the unique nature of Daytona International Speedway.

While new BoP has been established in all four classes, IMSA has elected to make minor changes since the first issue of this BoP, on March 11, prior to the postponement of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

It includes a 5 kg minimum weight reduction for the Cadillac DPi-V.R, which will now run at 960 kg, while the McLaren 720S GT3 has been given a 15 kg weight gain although countered by a boost increase across all RPM levels.

Additionally, the Mercedes-AMG GT3, also in GT Daytona, has been given a 1 mm larger air restrictor, which will provide the car with more power.

Minor fuel capacity adjustments have been made to multiple cars in GTD compared to IMSA’s initial starting BoP for the ‘regular season’ races.
