The allocation of Success Ballast for the second race meeting of the TCR Middle East International Series that takes place on Friday and Saturday at the Dubai Autodrome will follow the championship standings.
Giacomo Altoè, who won the opening race in Abu Dhabi and is currently on top of the Drivers’ classification with 45 points will carry the maximum ballast of 30 kilos on board of his Audi RS3 LMS run by Pit Lane Competizioni on behalf of the TCR Academy.
The 20 kilos for the second best scorer will be on Luca Engstler’s Volkswagen Golf GTI, as the young German won Abu Dhabi’s Race 2 and is currently second in the standings, one point behind Altoè.
Mat’o Homola – third with 33 points – will be given 10 kilos of ballast.
As a result, the running weights of the first three cars will be: Altoè’s Audi DSG 1285 kg (1250 + 5 BoP + 30 ballast); Engstler’s Golf SEQ 1285 (1285 – 20 BoP + 20 SB); Homola’s Golf DSG 1235 kg (1250 – 25 BoP + 10 SB).
