Ferrari has received adjustments in three Balance of Performance parameters according to an updated table issued at the start of 24 Hours of Le Mans race week track action.

In a bulletin published on Wednesday, the Ferrari 488 GTE Evos in both the GTE-Pro and GTE-Am classes have been handed reductions in turbo boost pressure and maximum fuel capacity, as well as a change to the permitted minimum rear wing angle.

A 0.07 bar turbo boost pressure decrease for the factory GTE-Pro Ferraris and a 0.06 bar decrease for the Am cars have been applied across the full RPM range.

Both the Pro and Am vehicles from the Italian manufacturer have lost 3 liters of fuel capacity, bringing them down to 87 and 84 liters respectively.

The minimum rear wing angle has been changed from 5.3 degrees to minus 5.3 degrees.

Additionally, a rear wing angle change for all Porsche 911 RSR-19s sees the German manufacturer’s cars shift from 2 degrees to minus 1.8 degrees.

Neither the Pro-class Chevrolet Corvette C8.Rs nor the Am-class Aston Martin Vantage GTEs have been affected by the BoP amendment, which was communicated right at the start of the three-hour Free Practice 1 session.

It is the first BoP change to be made after the official test day last weekend.
