The No. 31 Chevrolet and the No. 73 Porsche, third- and fourth-place finishers in the GT class’ original  results, each had 22 seconds (equivalent to a drive-thru penalty) assessed for late-race contact involving the No. 63 Ferrari that resulted in a change of position.

In the official results, the No. 31 and No 73 are relegated to eighth and ninth in GT respectively.

The No. 63 Ferrari, originally the fifth-place finisher in GT, has been moved up to third in the official results.
