Joao Barbosa has restarted Petit Le Mans from the lead, after an hour-long yellow for track repairs. The race has now entered its second half, with four hours, 52 minutes remaining.

Eric Curran is chasing down his Action Express team-mate after the restart, while Max Angelelli is third for Wayne Taylor Racing.

A timing chain took the DeltaWing out of the race during the yellow flag period.

James French is out front in Prototype Challenge, with Robert Alon second. Just three Oreca FLM09s are ahead of the GT Le Mans field.

Alex Popow and Renger van der Zande have clinched the PC championship, having secured the minimum requirement of a sixth-place finish or higher, despite mechanical problems.

Toni Vilander takes the GTLM field to the restart in his Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE, while Marcel Fassler is second in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R.

Long-time GT Daytona leaders Magnus Racing are still at the front of the class, and Marco Seefried is at the wheel of the Audi R8 LMS.
