The No. 78 KCMG Porsche 911 RSR has been demoted to a third place result in GTE-Am, following a post-race penalty for its last-lap contact in Sunday’s Six Hours of Shanghai.
The Wolf Henzler, Joel Camathoas and Christian Ried-driven entry had initially finished second in class but has been handed a 10-second penalty for Henzler’s contact with the No. 83 AF Corse Ferrari F458 Italia GT of Rui Aguas.
As a result, Aguas and co-drivers Emmanuel Collard and Francois Perrodo have been elevated to a second place finish, extending their lead in the class championship to 25 points over the No. 98 Aston Martin, which claimed its fifth class victory of the season on Sunday.
The AF Corse trio will need to only reach the 70 percent distance mark in the season-ending Six Hours of Bahrain to be crowned class champions.
