Update: Following a post-session review, Michael Christensen and Kevin Estre have lost their GTE-Pro pole after Estre’s fastest lap was deemed by the stewards to have exceeded track limits. This means that Aston Martin are bumped up to pole and second and the #91 Porsche will start third. Porsche retained pole for GTE Am.
