Le Mans 24 Hrs 2008: Hours 13-15.

The #32 Barazi Epsilon Zytek ran into driveshaft problems shortly after mid-distance, the #22 Tokei University Courage struggled with overheating brakes and the LMP1 Dome hit the wall at Indianapolis with Daisuke Ito at the wheel before Kristensen took the lead, while the Embassy Racing WF01 was back in its garage receiving more attention as the 15-hour mark ticked by.

The #6 ORECA prototype, which Marcel Fassler crash comprehensively just after the nine-hour point remains listed as a runner and, remarkably, remains ahead of the two Epsilon Euskadi cars, which have both run into myriad problems. While the late entry #21's troubles well documented, the all-Spanish #20 joined it at the tail of the field after Adrian Valles returned it to the pits for attention.

With reliability playing a key role in the battle for overall honours, all six 'works' car remain at the front of the field, albeit with nine laps separating Kristensen from the #8's Alex Wurz, and it could be the weather that provides the difference in the final result. Audi appears better suited to the wet, and Peugeot to the dry. The track is now beginning to dry again.....
