G-Drive Racing by Algarve has been handed victory in Sunday’s Four Hours of Shanghai with Thunderhead Carlin Racing penalized from the Asian Le Mans Series opener.
Carlin was handed a three-lap post-race penalty for a driving time infringement, dropping its No. 45 Dallara P217 Gibson to third place in the final standings.
Harry Tincknell, Jack Manchester and Ben Barnicoat drove the Carlin Dallara, with Tincknell making a last-lap pass on G-Drive’s Roman Rusinov to initially claim the win in China.
Rusinov, James French and Leonard Hoogenboom are now classified as race winners with the No. 26 Aurus 01 Gibson, while Eurasia Motorsport’s Ligier JS P217 Gibson shared by Aidan Read, Nicholas Foster and Roberto Mehri moves up to second.
The switch in positions maintains having three different LMP2 constructors on the podium.
