After the controversy experienced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the
‘Balance of Performance’ of the class GTE-Pro, few could think that everything would remain unchanged in the face of the 6 Hours of Nürburgring. Despite the
enormous superiority of the Ford GT and to a lesser extent, the Ferrari 488 GTE,
none of the two cars will suffer penalties of performance face to the fourth
appointment of the WEC. In this way, the Ford and the Ferrari will compete with the same
specifications as they did in Le Mans after the change of the ‘BoP’ later
to the classification.
In this way, the Ford GT competes with a minimum weight of
1.248 kilos as it did at Le Mans, while Ferrari 488 GTE
will have a weight of 1.268 kg. These figures alone do not say much and
that given the characteristics antagonistic to the German circuit compared to Le Mans
do not serve as reference. In any case, it is worth remembering that in the 6 Hours of
Spa-Francorchamps the Ford GT competed with a weight of 1,263 pounds -with a
performance discrete – and Ferrari did with 1.243 pounds, being the
great rulers of the appointment of belgium.
Yes, have seen changes in their GT have
been Porsche and Aston Martin, despite having in the 24 Hours of Le Mans a
performance very bottom. El Porsche 911 RSR earns 15 pounds in relation to Le Mans
and receive a flange of admission 2 millimeters smaller. For his part,
Aston Martin Vantage retain the weight of 1.183 kg of minimum weight that
had in the French track, but return to the flange of admission largest of
Spa. As it is logical, all cars return to the fuel deposits
prior to Le Mans.
