Leopard Racing teammates Jean-Karl Vernay and Stefano Comini will carry the two heavier Success Ballasts in the next race meetings at Sepang.
Vernay, the winner of the first race at Singapore, was the event’s best scorer with 38 points, while Comini – second and fourth in the two races – bagged 33 points. As a result, Vernay’s Volkswagen Golf will be laden by 30 kilos of Success Ballast and Comini’s by 20.
The third overweight of 10 kilos will be imposed to the B3 Racing Team’s SEAT León of Mat’o Homola who scored 26 points at Singapore.
With this success ballast added to the BoP, the running weights of the three cars will be 1315 kg for Vernay’s Volkswagen, 1305 kg for Comini’s Volkswagen and 1325 for Homola’s SEAT.
The Craft-Bamboo Lukoil SEAT cars of James Nash and Pepe Oriola, who are first and third in the championship classification, will run on 1315 kg.
