BMW et Volvo lose weight in Donington

The BMW 320 TC and Volvo C30 cars will be granted a weight reduction for the next WTCC event at Donington Park.

According to the calculation of the compensation weight based on the lap times set in the three previous events (Hungary, Czech Republic and Portugal) the Chevrolet Cruze 1.6T will be carrying again the maximum weight of 40 extra kilos.

The BMW 320 TC cars will be 20 kilos lighter, 10 kg less than in Porto, while the compensation weight is applied for the first time to the Volvo, after the Swedish car ran with 40kg of extra weight in Brno and Porto, the first two events in which it was fitted with the new 1.6-litre turbo engine.

Thus Dahlgren’s Volvo, just like all the other cars – SUNRED SR León 1.6T and Fabiani’s BMW 320si – will benefit from a 20kg reduction on its maximum weight.
