The No. 98 Aston Martin Vantage GTE has lost GTE-Am class pole for this afternoon’s FIA WEC Six Hours of Mexico presented by AT&T over a technical infringement.

The ride height of the Paul Dalla Lana and Pedro Lamy-qualified Aston was found to be below the 55mm minimum in post-qualifying scrutineering on Friday evening.

Dalla Lana, Lamy and Mathias Lauda will therefore start from the rear of the 32-car field, handing the class pole to the No. 88 Abu Dhabi Proton Racing Porsche 911 RSR of Patrick Long, David Heinemeier Hansson and Khaled al Qubaisi.

The Proton entry, seeking its first class victory of the season, will lead a Porsche 1-2-3 in class to the green.
