WSC publishes updated BoP for 2020 season

The technical Department of TCR rights holder WSC Group has published the latest Balance of Performance [BoP] figures for the 2020 season, featuring a new code for engine power and ECU type.

The publication of the BoP had been delayed dye to the global COVID-19 situation and the ability to test the various cars, which had to be transported from various regions under differing government policies.

The heaviest car is the Lynk & Co 03 TCR, which carries 60 kg of BoP weight, taking it’s total running weight to 1,325 kg. This is followed by the Hyundai Veloster N (1,315), Hyundai i30 N (1,305), Honda Civic Type-R FK7 (1,305), LADA Vesta Sport (1,305) and CUPRA Leon Competición (1,305).

The two Hyundai models feature the highest ride height at 90 mm, followed by four models on 80 mm (CUPRA Leon Competición, LADA Vest Sport, Lynk & Co 03 and MG6 XPOWER).

The engine calibration column is a new code for the engine power level of each car. The number in the acronym corresponds to the power scale from 1 to 6 (ranging from 90 % to 102.5 %) as per in previous years; no cars feature at 1 or 2 on the scale.

The letter prefix refers to the type of Engine Control Unit (ECU) in the car with ‘M’ standing for motorsport, ‘C’ for common (only fitted in the new-for-2020 CUPRA Leon Competición) and ‘R’ for roadgoing (used in Volkswagen-Audi Group cars).
