After four hours, the #55 Kaspersky Motorsport Ferrari 488 GT3 remains at the head of the pack, in front of the #63 GRT Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan GT3 and the #1 Audi Sport Team WRT car.

In the Pro AM battle the #97 Oman Racing Team with TF Sport Aston Martin V12 GT3 leads the way, with Euan Hankey currently in the car.

The main story from the second hour was the destruction of the #50 AF Corse Ferrari when Pasin Lathouras hit the wall heavily at the top of Raidillon, thankfully the Thai driver walked away from the accident unaided.

ROWE Racing faced issues with their #99 BMW with damage to the right rear suspension and drive-through penalties continued for a number of drivers for track infringements.

At the end of the second hour the #63 GRT Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan led the way with the #55 Kaspersky Motorsport Ferrari in second place behind the safety car.

The third hour was a quiet affair for track action, not long after the circuit being cleared of the Ferrari debris Jamie Green hit the barriers in turn 11, leaving #17 Belgian Audi Club Team WRT Audi R8 LMS facing the wrong way with rear-end damage.

As track status switched back to green, the #55 Ferrari in the hands of James Calado was hunting down the #63 Lamborghini, Andrea Caldarelli would defend hard.

A masterful performance on the hour by the Kaspersky Motorsport pit crew would see Calado move back ahead of the Lamborghini with the latest round of pit stops.

There was drama for the #8 Bentley after it was announced they would have to serve a five minute penalty for exceeding the driving time of Andy Soucek, thankfully for the team the penalty was rescinded after it was revealed the pitlane was blocked when the Bentley was due to come in to the pits.

The #114 Emil Frey Jaguar Racing introduced itself to the barriers at Les Combes, and spinning to a halt.

Küs Team75 Bernhard are having a tough endurance debut after having to serve a three minute penalty for unsafe pit entry.

Andre Lotterer lost time with slow laps and time in the garage as the team worked to cure the issues on the #5 Audi, losing three laps in the process.
