Yes RWD do have a disadvantage for the first lap or two but it's far easier to defend from the car behind during that period than it is for a FWD car to defend from a RWD car on the start IMO.
But the point is that BMW are penalised in other ways than the other cars.

These are some of the measures introduced over the years;

- They run a much higher min weight
- They have a raised ride height
- Additional weight placed above the engine for COG purposes
- Forced by regulation less than ideal location for the ballast box
- Reduced boost in 1st gear
- Longer 1st gear ratio

I dont honestly know how much of this is still active since its never made totally clear to the public what is going on, sadly.

I know all that and it doesn't change my point. Trying to balance radically different cars is always going to be a minefield so just ditch the outlier and concentrate on balancing cars that have a great deal more in common with each other.

BOP looked pretty good at LeMans so as a concept it can work

Evidently you're not reading the same posts I am about the BOP at LM! There are some proper anti-Ferrari conspiracies doing the rounds

Not really, Lee has been talking about it on his socials for weeks. This is not not going to happen, as confirmed by the team owner. Lees just a bit deluded I think.

I had to Google the name and he has achieved nothing of note or has competed in any of the serious top level esports championships. A few public races on GT7 isn't going to cut it. Unless he is sitting on a fortune, or has plans to acquire one very quickly, this sounds like a pipe dream. Plenty of talented real life and sim drivers cannot make it happen....
