Following a red flag period of one hour and five minutes, Saturday’s Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda has restarted in the seventh hour, with three hours and 22 minutes remaining in the race.
Class leaders before the restart were Sebastien Bourdais in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP (Prototype), Patrick Pilet in the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR (GT Le Mans), Mike Guasch in the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca FLM09 (Prototype Challenge) and Andy Lally in the No. 44 Magnus Racing Porsche 911 GT America (GT Daytona).
However, pit stops occurred just after the race went back from red to yellow flag conditions. Both the No. 5 and No. 911 cars pitted from the lead in class on separate laps.
It has jumbled the order and the new leaders are Eric Curran in the No. 31 Action Express Racing Corvette DP in P, and Oliver Gavin in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R in GTLM. Guasch and Lally still lead in the pro-am classes, and Lally led the field to the restart.
