High Class Racing has been promoted to third place in the 4 Hours of Monza following the post-race disqualification of DragonSpeed’s car for a technical infringement.

The diffuser on DragonSpeed’s No. 27 Oreca 07 Gibson, which finished third on the road after stints from Ben Hanley, Henrik Hedman and Charles Milesi, was found to be non-compliant with the dimensions stated in the technical regulations.

Scrutineering checks found the diffuser to be at a height of 206 mm, rather than the required 200 mm.

This resulted in DragonSpeed’s disqualification and the promotion of High Class Racing’s Anders Fjordbach and Dennis Andersen into the top three.

High Class Racing’s last ELMS podium came in the 2017 race at Monza, meaning 19 rounds have passed between that achievement and this weekend.

It has also given the other LMP2 cars behind an extra position, with Cool Racing’s Oreca of Nicolas Lapierre, Antonin Borga and Alexandre Coigny now classified fourth.

Will Stevens, Nico Jamin and Julien Canal have moved up to fifth, one place ahead of IDEC Sport’s Paul Lafargue, Richard Bradley and Nicolas Minassian.

United Autosports is the only LMP2 not affected by DragonSpeed’s disqualification after the Anglo-American squad claimed its first one-two result of the season.

The results at the top of the other classes remain unchanged.
