Herberth Motorsport has remained in control of the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai, with four hours to go in the around-the-clock enduro.

The No. 911 Porsche 911 GT3 R of Ralf Bohn holds a one-lap lead over the No. 12 Manthey Racing Porsche, now in the controls of Matteo Cairoli, who is slowly closing in on the leading entry.

The Herberth entry pitted for full service and a brake change, just prior to the 20-hour mark, which eliminated its effective two-lap advantage at the time, but still holds a firm control in the closing stages.

Michal Broniszewski runs third in the lone-remaining No. 3 Black Falcon Mercedes-AMG GT3, following the eventual retirement of the No. 2 car, which was crashed out by Khaled Al Qubaisi.

The No. 14 Optimum Motorsport Audi R8 LMS and No. 76 IMSA Performance Porsche completes the top-five, with the No. 1 Hofor Racing Mercedes-AMG leading A6-Am.

No major incidents have occurred in recent hours, in what’s setting up to be a run to the checkered flag.
