    The FIA Endurance Committee has issued a second pre-6 Hours of Shanghai BoP change, handing Corvette Racing a weight break for its guest-entered GTE Pro class C7.R.

    The revised BoP table sees the C7.R’s minimum car weight reduced to a near identical value to its Le Mans 24 Hours weight back from the GTE Pro BoP levels back in June. Initially, the C7.R was due to be the second-heaviest GTE car in the class in China, with a 27kg increase from Le Mans to 1276kg. Instead, with the change, the car’s minimum weight is 1248kg, one kilogram lighter than its Le Mans weight.

    That’s the only change in the table since the initial pre-Shanghai BoP was first released, which saw small 5kg weight breaks for the Fords, Porsches, Aston Martins and BMWs. The Aston Martin Vantage AMRs were also handed a slight increase in turbo boost pressure for China in the round of BoP.
