The Aston Martin Vantages will face a reduction in power, with Porsche’s 911 RSR having been given a weight break, following the latest round of Balance of Performance adjustments ahead this month’s FIA WEC Six Hours of Nürburgring.

The FIA Endurance Committee confirmed late last month BoP changes to the GTE classes, which includes adjustments for Ferrari and Corvette as well heading into the second half of the FIA WEC season.

Both GTE-Pro and GTE-Am Astons have been handed a 0.5mm reduction in air restrictor size, following the British manufacturer’s early season dominance in the production-based categories.

Porsche’s 911 RSR, which has struggled in the opening three rounds, meanwhile, has been given a 10kg weight break in GTE-Pro and a 15kg decrease in GTE-Am ahead of the German round.

Other changes include a 5 liter fuel capacity increase for the Corvette C7.R and a larger refueling restrictor, applicable in both classes, as well as a 15kg weight increase for the Ferrari F458 Italias in GTE-Am only.

The changes follow the FIA’s release of its updated Equivalence of Technology table for LMP1, which also goes into effect later this month.
