Sarrazin led for the majority of the hour, while the Toyota's were split by the #2 Porsche. Initially Romain Dumas was at the wheel of the LMP1 machine; however Dumas only drove for ten laps, in hat appeared to be several strokes of confusion, as it appeared Jani was not ready to take the drive.

The trio were covered by less than 15s for much of the hour; however that extended to 20s come the end of the hour as a further series of stops were undertaken.

Dumas took to the pits when a heavy accident for the #64 Corvette through the Dunlop Curves destroyed the tyre barrier and instigated a slow zone. Having stopped just prior to the slow zone, Nakajima was able to jump the Porsche in the #5 Toyota, giving Sarrazin an 11s in the #6 Toyota.

The #36 Signatech Alpine - driven by Stephane Richelmi - leads the LMP2 class by 1'30s from the #46 Thiriet by TDS Racing, while the #26 G-Drive hold 3rd spot.
Simon Dolan crashed the #35 G-Drive in the Porsche Curves from 5th in the LMP2 standings, wrecking the left-front suspension as a result.

IN GTE-Pro, #82 Risi Competizione still leads the #68 and #69 Ford GT duo, with the #95 Aston Martin playing catch-up in p4 in class.

The #62 Scuderia Corsa leads GTE-Am for one lap over the #88 Abu Dhabi Proton Racing , with the #83 AF Corse an additional 2m23s adrift in 3rd place.
