Balance of Performance unchanged - the Audi R8 LMS ultra remains strongly penalized

By Tarek Ramchani

The FIA has decided that there will be no changes regarding the Balance of Performance (BoP) of the Audi R8 LMS ultra, this following what happened at the 2013 Spa 24 Hours.

Therefore Audi's chances to retain the Blancpain Endurance Series titles at the Nürburgring season finale are very slim. It will be a tough challenge for the Audi teams at the final round. It is clear that the R8 LMS ultra is strongly penalized compared to the other brand’s cars.

We at the Audi Motorsport Blog have already mentioned the unfair Balance of Performance imposed on the Audi R8 LMS ultra, you can read that right here.
