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.
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.

In LMP2 #36 Signtech Alpine has made its move out in front with Stephane Rechelmi driving away from Rene Rast in the #26 G-Drive Oreca as the #37 SMP Racing BR01 made a move into the top three.

In GTE-Pro #82 Risi Competizione Ferrari has seen its lead extended after the chasing #68 Ford Chip Ganassi was handed a drive through penalty for not turning its engine off during refuelling.

It is still a Ferrari double in GT with #62 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari comfortably leading the Am class by over three-and-a-half minutes.
