NotesEdit

  1. ^ The No. 35 DC Racing Alpine-Nissan was penalized by the stewards after the race for failing to achieve the minimum driver time for Nelson Panciatici. Seven laps plus 38.948 seconds was added to race time for DC Racing to account for the amount of time Panciatici was short of his requirement.
