SRO Motorsports Group has made Balance of Performance adjustments to the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 and Porsche 911 GT3 R ahead of the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa.

Confirmed in a BoP update issued to teams on Friday, the Ferrari has been given a 10 kg weight break, with the Porsche able to run with 5 kgs less ballast compared to each manufacturer’s configurations at the start of the event.

It comes following several pre-event adjustments made since the Spa Test Days that impacted six of the nine GT3 brands.

The Ferrari is now 20 kgs lighter than the last Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup race at Paul Ricard, which also ran to SRO’s Category B track-specific BoP table.

The 5 kg weight reduction is the first adjustment to the Porsche, meanwhile.
