Greaves Motorsport has been declared winners of Sunday’s Four Hours of Le Castellet following a drive-time issue for the Jota Sport Gibson 015S, which had taken the checkered flag in first.

The Harry Tincknell, Flipe Albuquerque and Simon Dolan-driven entry has been given a 45-second post-race penalty due to Albuquerque exceeding the maximum drive time in the race.

It thus drops the car to a third place result, behind the Greaves entry of Gary Hirsch, Bjorn Wirdheim and Jon Lancaster and the now second-placed No. 21 AF Racing BR01 Nissan.

Albuquerque exceeded the maximum 90-minute drive time by 1 minute and 57 seconds.

RESULTS: Four Hours of Le Castellet (Revised)
