The new CUPRA Leon Competición TCR car has been given a 20 kilogram weight break in the TCR Balance of Performance calculations, effective for this weekend.
The updated TCR BoP bulletin thus drops the Spanish car’s ballast from 40 kg to 20 kg, with its minimum racing weight lowered to 1,285 kg.
A separate drop is applied for endurance races, where the ballast goes from 20 kg to 5 kg, making a minimum racing weight of 1,255 kg.
In major TCR sprint championships, the car has been active in TCR Germany, TCR Italy, TCR eastern Europe, TCR Scandinavia and the FIA World Touring Car Cup in 2020.
The car has claimed four victories to-date, coming in TCR Italy (1) and TCR Scandinavia (3). The car recently made its début in WTCR with Zengő Motorsport, with Mikel Azcona giving the car an 11th place finish in race two at Zolder.
The Hyundai i30 N TCR also gets a power increase, with the cars moving from M3 engine calibration (‘Motorsport’) to C4 (‘Common ECU’) and from level 3 to level 4, representing a 2.5% increase in power.
