I try not to use this website as a podium, for various reasons, but, in this particular case I will ask for your indulgence. During our last meeting I told everyone about the IMSA Balance of Performance (BoP) Petition currently being solicited at Change.org.

The new Corvette C7.R, which was codeveloped with the 2015 Corvette Z06, will compete in GT Le Mans class of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. The C7.R will make its competition debut at the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 25-26.

This is not just about the Corvette Racing Team and its fans, but about the International Motorsports Association’s application of the rules of the racing series over the last two years, as it applies to all manufacturers in the series; although, the Corvette Racing Team seems to have taken the brunt of most of the actions thus far. This is also not a sour grapes issue as “some other camps have expressed”. To help everyone interested understand the issue I have included below several well written and concise articles that should fill in the blanks for you.

IMSA’s Unbalanced Balance of Performance Adjustments – Part 1

IMSA’s Unbalanced Balance of Performance Adjustments – Part 2

…and to a lesser extent, this article:

Championship “Mind Games” – BoP & the Lone Star Le Mans

So, after wading through the technical and philosophical points made above, and if you are so inclined, I ask you to take the time and sign the petition.

Thank you!
