    #99 Aston has sustained heavy damage and is still being rebuilt. So far they've lost 5 laps to the #64 in the pits but the #51 Ferrari is ahead of them.

    #7 Audi a lap down due apparently to the engine cover blowing off. I went out for an hour and missed it.. #19 #17 Porsches leading, #9 Audi third.

    Brake issues for #9 Audi, sounds like a failure of the brake-by-wire system. #19, #9, #17.

    #55 GTE AM Ferrari has managed to run out of fuel down the bottom of the track. Everyone pondering how that could have happened without the driver just not seeing the warning lamp.

    GT Pro #64 and #51 are absolutely nose to tail after exiting pit lane all but side by side after 18 hours of race.


    .. And Tracy Krohn has spun again.

    LMP2: KCMG’s impressive lead is unyielding, now two full laps ahead of the #26 OAK G-Drive Ligier. There’s just a lap between that car and Jota’s #38 Zytek/Gibson, Murphy Prototypes’s #48 Morgan and the #28 OAK G-Drive Ligier.

    GTE-Pro: After finally getting back to the rear of the #51 AF Corse Ferrari, Corvette #64 stays in a dogfight, but still trails that car. Manthey Porsche #91 has closed to within 3 minutes of those leaders.

    GTE-Am: Despite a major off at the Porsche Curves by Canadian amateur Paul Dalla Lana, Porsche #98 still leads GTE-Am over SMP Racing’s #72 Ferrari, which they now have a lap on. Scuderia Corse Ferrari #62, meanwhile, has finally passed the #77 Demspey Proton Porsche to take third in class.

    On the lead lap: 19, 17, 9 (LMP1), 47 (LMP2), 51, 64, 91 (GTE-Pro), 98 (GTE-Am)

    Retirements: 96, 46, 43, 21, 36, 97, 50, 41, 88, 92

    Viper had a small spin, survived. Running well, here's hoping it spurs Dodge into a proper full works entry next year. Then we'd have Chevy, Ford and Dodge involved.

    Unless good ol' Serge forbids it in case they're faster than the Ferraris.

    Little change, KCMG's lead on LMP2 has dropped from 2 laps to about 90 seconds due to stopping twice in one lap for some reason. 'Vette about 26 seconds up in the Ferrari in GT Pro.

    #9 leading Audi reporting unknown problems with the hybrid system, so far Porsche seem pretty safe in the first two places barring any issues.

    Morning all.

    Seems like Porsche still dominates. And Chevrolet also in the lead of GTE, can Ferrari fight?

    Footage of the #96 Aston accident is here. Goethe was concious and talking following the incident, not sure any updates have been released yet.

    That was a hard crash, glad to read he is ok.

    By the way, weather forecast says rain might appear in about 3 hours, just in time to pour in excitement to the end of the race.

    Now the Toyota #1 has been told through the radio that rain might come in about 10 minutes...

    Drive through for the Audi #7 for not respecting the slow zones. This doesn't seem to be Audi's race.
