Toyota is set up to clinch its maiden Le Mans victory with one hour of racing action remaining as the #5 TS050 Hybrid is to be led home by Kazuki Nakajima who holds a half-minute lead.

With just one scheduled pit stop each left to run for both the #5 Toyota and #2 Porsche Nakajima needs to just avoid any nightmare mechanical issues or offs and maintain the 30-second advantage over Neel Jani.

In LMP2 #36 Signatech Alpine looks certain for a home favourite victory having pitted on the hour and still holds a lap lead over #26 G-Drive Oreca.

The closest class still to be decided is GTE-Pro with the #68 Ford Chip Ginanassi leading narrowly from the former leaders #82 Risi Competizione Ferrari.

In GTE-Am, #62 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari will be lead home by Jeffery Segal who has almost three minutes on David Heinemeier-Hansson in the Abu Dhabi-Proton Raicng Porsche.
