The bulletin containing the full list of the initial TCR Balance of Performance for the 2019 season has been issued by the WSC Group’s technical department and approved by the FIA.
The document lists twenty-two models, representing thirteen different brands of car manufacturers and will be applied to all TCR-certified races around the world.
On the basis of the aerodynamics and engine checks, and of the track test for the new cars, the following parameters are provided for each model: Engine Power Level, Target Racing Weight, Compensation Weight, BoP Ballast, Total Minimum Racing Weight and Ride Height.
The Engine Power Level ranges from a maximum of 102.5% to a minimum of 97.5% for the new Lynk&Co 03 and the Hyundai i30 N and Veloster N; the Ride Height varies from 60mm (Audi, CUPRA and Volkswagen with DSG gearbox) to 90mm (the two Hyundai cars), and so does the BoP ballast between -60kg (Peugeot 308 Racing Cup) and +40kg (Hyundai Veloster)The Compensation Weight is fixed at 60kg for all models on their first appearance, but it will be adjusted during the season by the CW Automatic Formula, based on the results of each championship.
The initial Total Minimum Racing Weights that come out from these calculations range from the 1225kg of the 308 Racing Cup to the 1365kg of the Veloster.
