Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, IMSA Performance Matmut: Raymond Narac, Christophe Bourret, Jean-Karl Vernay

The main story for this hour is the loss of the leading GTE Pro Aston Martin in the hands of Frederic Makowieki in the closing stages of the hour, despite the heavy impact Makwieki exited the car and ran to safety behind the barrier. The result of the accident means the #92 Porsche piloted by Marc Lieb is now leading the Pro category with Peter Dumbreck chasing for the lead in the #97 Aston Martin.

The story in the LMP1 class remains pretty much the same with Allan McNish leading the race in the #2 Audi followed by #8 Toyota in the hands of Sarrazin and #7 with Nakajima at the wheel. Di Grassi in the #3 Audi is on the same lap as the #7 Toyota with Marcel Fassler closing in but still 8 laps down to his Audi team-mate. As the hour closed the #12 Rebellion waited at the end of the pitlane ready to return to racing, now down in 27th place.

LMP2 remains with the #35 OAK Racing leading the #24 sister while Lucas Ordonez now sits in third place in the Greaves Motorsport car.

IMSA Performance Matmut Porsche #76 is continuing to control the GTE Am class ahead of the #55 AF Corse Ferrari and the #77 Dempsey Del Piero Porsche.
