WEC will be racing in Monza next weekend, and the BoP (Balance of Performance) of the cars will remain untouched for that event.

The minimum weights, energy allocations, and power curves that were used during the race in Portimao will remain the same also in Monza for the following cars: the Toyota GR010 Hybrid, the Glickenhaus 007 LMH, and the Alpine A480.

Around the Portuguese venue, the average lap timings of the Toyota and the Alpine were almost the same. On the other hand, Glickenhaus was a bit off the pace, and it lost 1.5 seconds per lap.

Despite being slower, Glickenhaus expects to be more competitive in Italy thanks to a new Pipo-engined 007s that will help the car on the long straights of the Italian circuit. In addition, despite losing more than a second to the other two rivals, the Glickenhaus cars were the fastest in the corners speed traps than the two Toyotas.

Since Glickenhaus entered the Portimao race, both Toyota and Alpine had to make some changes to their cars. The minimum weight of the Toyota was raised from 1040kg to 1066, while the one of the Alpine went from 930 kg to 952kg. Moreover, the power curves of both teams were changed a bit.

The GTE Pro category also received some changes regarding the BoP this year. 

The minimum weight of the Porsche 911 RSR-19 went from 1259kg to 1264kg, and the one of the Ferrari 488 GTE Evo went from 1260kg to 1255kg.

Due to the introduction of the new fuel, the BoP in the GTE series was completely reset at the start of this season. 

The BoP, like for the WEC, remains untouched for the GTE Am class in Monza.
