The Success Ballast system will be applied for the first time during the current season, on the occasion of the second race meeting at the Bahrain International Circuit.
Following the results achieved in the season’s opener at Rustavi International Motorpark in Georgia, GE-Force’s Davit Kajaia, M1RA’s Attila Tassi and Lukoil Craft-Bamboo’s Pepe Oriola will carry ballast on their cars.
Race 1 winner and current points leader Kajaia will be given the maximum 30-kilo ballast; this is the first time the Romeo Ferraris-built Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR will be laden by extra weight. In fact, the Italian car’s running weight will be 1295 kilograms (1285kg minimum weight, plus 30kg of Success Ballast, minus 20kg of Balance of Performance adjustment).
A 20-kilo ballast will be imposed on Tassi’s Honda Civic Type-R TCR, the second-best scoring car in Rustavi; its running weight will be 1335kg (1285 + 20 SB + 30 BoP), while Race 2 winner Oriola’s SEAT León TCR will carry 10 kilos of ballast for a running weight of 1325kg (1285 + 10 + 30).
