WTCC: CHEVROLET AND BMW ON SAME WEIGHT
CHEVROLET AND BMW ON SAME WEIGHT
The Chevrolet Cruze and BMW 320 TC cars will run on the same weight at the Slovakia Ring, with the maximum compensation weight on board.
The calculation based on the lap times set in the three previous events (Italy, Spain and Morocco) identified the Chevrolet as the reference model and allocated 40 extra kilos to the five cars ran by Chevrolet-RML and bamboo-engineering.
However the time-gap between the Cruze and the BMW is only 0.3 seconds and therefore the German cars will be laden by the same 40kg compensation weight, meaning that they will be 20 kilos heavier than in the previous event.
The SEAT León WTCC will receive 20 extra kilos (ten less compared to Marrakech), while the other cars - SEAT León TDi, SUNRED León 1.6T and Ford Focus S2000 – will benefit from a 20kg reduction of their minimum weights.
