The GTE-Pro class pole-sitting Aston Martin Vantage GTE has been slowed following a pre-race Balance of Performance adjustment issued by the FIA on the eve of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Released on Friday evening, the pair of Vantages have received a turbo boost reduction through all RPM levels and a 2-liter fuel cut for the French endurance classic.
While the Aston has been given a 5 kg weight break, four of the five other GTE-Pro cars have also been handed the same weight reduction.
All but the Corvette C7.R have received the 5 kg weight break.
