The drive-through penalty for George Kurtz in Race 2 of GT World Challenge America powered by AWS at Sonoma Raceway has been rescinded, giving the CrowdStrike-sponsored Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo a second place class finish.
Kurtz was initially assessed the penalty while running second overall in Sunday’s 90-minute race.
However, in a stewards’ decision issued late Sunday, SRO America found that the GPS timing system had produced a report with “erroneous pit lane speed data” for the No. 04 DXDT entry.
It resulted in the car being credited post-race for 42 seconds, the time calculated for a drive-through penalty.
Kurtz and Braun have now finished fourth overall and second in the Pro-Am class as a result.
The car had initially crossed the line in sixth overall but was moved to fifth after a post-race penalty for the No. 24 TR3 Racing Ferrari 488 GT3 of Ziad Ghandour, who made contact with Kurtz while battling for position on the final lap.
RESULTS: Race 2 (Revised)
