BoP: a weight break for most of the cars

The TCR technical department has issued a further adjustment of the Balance of Performance.
A reduction of weight has been granted to most of the cars, while the Hyundai i30 N has been subjected to a reduction of the maximum boost pressure and of the engine power level to 97.5% and an increase of its ride height from 80 to 100mm.

The models that benefit from the weight-break are:
-       Peugeot 308 Racing Cup -60kg (previously -30): minimum racing weight 1225kg
-       Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR -40kg (previously -20): minimum racing weight 1285kg
-       Peugeot 308 TCR -40kg (previously -20): minimum racing weight 1285kg
-       CUPRA/SEAT TCR -20kg (previously -10): minimum racing weight 1305kg
-       CUPRA/SEAT TCR DSG -20kg (previously -10): minimum racing weight 1270kg
-       Audi RS3 LMS SEQ -10kg (previously +10): minimum racing weight 1315kg
-       Audi RS3 LMS DSG -10kg (previously +10): minimum racing weight 1280kg
-       Volkswagen Golf GTI SEQ -10kg (previously 0): minimum racing weight 1315kg
-       Volkswagen Golf GTI DSG -10kg (previously 0): minimum racing weight 1280kg

The minimum racing weights of the Hyundai (1325kg), Honda Civic FK2 (1305) and the Opel Astra (1315kg) remain unchanged, while that of the Honda Civic FK7 was increased by 20kg to 1325. 
All the racing weights are also subject to further adjustment by the application of the Compensation Weight system.
This BoP is for immediate application, starting from this weekend’s WTCR and TCR Europe Series event at Zandvoort and the TCR China opener at Zhuhai.
