While Kazuki Nakajima is still out front in the Six Hours of Silverstone with one hour remaining, the win is still to play for with the Porsches less than 20 seconds behind. 

Nakajima and the No. 8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid have been out front for the past couple of stints while the sister No. 7 car is out of contention following a crash earlier in the race.

Brendon Hartley is currently less than 20 seconds down the road in the No. 2 Porsche 919 Hybrid which led for a short while earlier with Timo Bernhard at the wheel, while Nick Tandy is two seconds further back in the No. 1 car.

Bruno Senna leads LMP2 in the No. 31 Vaillante Rebellion Oreca 07 Gibson with the Alpine A470 Gibson having lost the lead during the fifth hour, after staying out front for all of the race beforehand.

Alex Lynn is currently in the Signatech Alpine Matmut car, running fourth.

Harry Tincknell leads a Ford Chip Ganassi Racing 1-2 in GTE-Pro, after Billy Johnson had led for a while at the halfway point in the other Ford GT.

Aston Martin Racing is still out front in GTE-Am, with Pedro Lamy holding a five-second lead over the Clearwater Racing Ferrari 488 GTE.
