Hour 11 report

Mike Conway heads the field with 6.83s lead over Romain Dumas in the #2 Porsche; however the #6 Toyota enjoys an entire pitstop advantage over the German entry, effectively lending the Briton 90s advantage once strategies play out.

In the final podium spot, the #5 Toyota continues to run unchallenged; however the #2 Porsche will drop close once Dumas pits. Loic Duval hold 4th in the #8 Audi, while the #13 Rebellion maintains 5th place overall, despite earlier issues.

In LMP2, Gustavo Menezes heads the pack in the #36 Signatech Alpine. The American enjoys 25s lead over Rene Rast in the #26 G-Drive, although that is expected to correct itself in the pits shortly. The #46 Thiriet by TDS Racing Oreca is still in 3rd spot in class, some 20s behind the G-Drive.

The #62 Risi Competizione leads the GTE-Pro class ahead of the #69 Ford GT by almost 50s, while the #68 Ford GT is half-a-lap adrift in 3rd place.

In GTE-Am, the #88 Abu Dhabi Proton still leads from the #62 Scuderia Corsa and the #61 Clearwater Ferrari.

The opening 30 minutes of hour eleven was dominated by the safety car, which was called at the end of hour ten when the engine of the #91 Porsche caught fire and spilled oil on track.
