Racing has resumed at the Circuit de la Sarthe with the no.2 Audi of Benoit Treluyer holding steady at the front of the pack.

The safety car pulled in at 1.15am local time following a lengthly period in which circuit workers repaired the damage done to the barriers by the Rockenfeller accident.

During the latest hour the No.71 Ferrari pitted revealing no visible damage after initial reports of a small collision setting off the Rockenfeller incident.

A number of pitstops across the field have shaken up the positions with Greaves motorsport now leading LMP2 followed by Team ORECA Matmut and Strakka Racing. As the hour came to an end so would Matias Russo’s race as the the No.39 Pecom Racing car snapped right after coming under the Dunlop bridge. Russo would exit the car leaving the marshalls to clear up the broken machinery.

In the GTE-Pro category the no.74 Corvette leads with a full lap between themselves and the AF Corse Srl Ferrari.

Labre Competition continue to dominate in the GTE-AM with the no.50 Corvette taking over the lead and no.81 Flying Lizard Porsche.
