The World Touring Car Championship (WTCC)'s Compensation Weight system, created to ensure close competition in the series will come in effect at the season's third venue, Marrakech.
The organizers hand out weight penalties, based on calculations from the two fastest cars of each make, in both qualifying and the race.
Therefore, the Chevrolet Cruze, who has won each race so far, will receive the maximum compensation weight of 40 extra kilograms.
"The SEAT León WTCC and BMW 320 TC cars will be laden with 30 and 20 extra kilos respectively," it was announced.
"The SUNRED León 1.6T cars won’t have any compensation weight added as Marrakech will be only their second appearance in the current season. Both, the SEAT León TDi and Ford Focus cars will have 20kg deducted from their minimum weight."
