The start at the 4 Hours of Sepang was delayed by an hour as a storm hit the track shortly before the competitors were to form the starting grid. The race still took place at night as announced, with the checkered flag waved at 22:45 local time. Though Eurasia Motorsport's #36 Ligier JS P217 triumphed at the finish line, the car was relegated to second place for the third round of the 2019-202 Asian Le Mans Series season after incurring a 30-second penalty. The top step on the overall podium at the 4 Hours of Sepang therefore went to Thunderhead Carlin Racing's #45 Dallara P217 *. 

The winner in GT was decided in the final minutes of the race after a 60-second penalty for excessive speed under a neutralisation pushed HubAuto Corsa's #27 Ferrari 488GT3 from first to second position. In the end, the JLOC team's #88 Lamborghini Huracan claimed the top step on the GT podium.

The Graff team's #9 Norma M30 won the LMP3 class. 

Rick Ware Racing's #52 won the LMP2 Am class. 

The next and last round of the 2019-2020 season is scheduled in one week on 23 February.
