Anthony Davidson and Marc Lieb have traded passes for the lead of the race entering the final four hours as the stakes are raised for victory.

At the hour having both pitted in sequence Davidson takes just over ten seconds on Lieb after the pair had been battling on track of the lead.

Kobayashi in the #6 Toyota is also within touching distance of the leading duo ten seconds off of the Porsche with the rest of the runners effectively out of contention due to continual mechanical woes.

In the LMP2 class, time is ticking down for #36 Signatech Alpine which is closing in on victory as it still holds a lap lead on the chasing #26 G-Drive Oreca as #37 SMP Racing BR01 ramps up its pace to take a stranglehold on third place.

Risi Competizione Ferrari has lost track position on the chasing #68 Ford Chip Ganassai but effectively has a whole pit stop in hand to keep a steady advantage at the head of the GTE-Pro class as the sister #69 Ford looks to have lost touch in third place.

In GTE-Am Townsend Bell has maintained Scuderia Corse Ferrari's one lap lead on the Abu Dhabi-Proton Racing Porsche and assuming it avoids any mechanical heartbreak or crashes should sweep up the class victory.
