WSC changes BoP weight scale for TCR cars

The TCR technical department has with immediate effect changed the range of the Balance of Performance for TCR cars, due to the fact that some cars have been unable to achieve the minimum racing weight.

The new range is from -10 kg to +70 kg, replacing the previous range of 0 kg to +60 kg. The decision was taken by the Touring Car Working Group so as not to penalise those cars unable to get their weight down to the minimum level.

The changes mean a 20 kg effective increase in the BoP ballast. 1,325 kg is now allocated to the heaviest cars (the Hyundai i30 N, Hyundai Veloster N and Lynk & Co 03). The lightest car is the Peugeot 308 Racing Cup.

All cars will start the 2020 season with 0 kg of Compensation Weight. This is then modified after each event by the Automatic Compensation Weight Formula which allocated a maximum of 40 kg of weight.

The maximum Compensation Weight could still change following further modifications when the 2020 TCR BoP tests have been finalised, following a delay caused by the global COVID-19 pendemic.
