Toyota is still holding on to a potential one-two finish at Le Mans 24 Hours but the #2 Porsche remains in hot pursuit to set-up a grandstand finish into the final six hours.

With all three cars on the lead lap running through untroubled programmes the podium order remained unchanged with #5 Toyota of Sebastien Buemi managing a lead over team-mate Mike Conway while Marc Lieb ensured the top trio were split by just one-minute.

The Audi pair in fourth and fifth continue to rattle away but looked slightly too far out from the leaders to content on pace along to the flag.
