The Four Hours of Spa-Francorchamps has reached its halfway point, and Simon Dolan currently leads the field for G-Drive Racing, following a series of incidents in the opening two hours.

So far, there have been three safety car periods, as well as a six-minute Full Course Yellow.

Dolan took the lead in the second safety car period, with the G-Drive Gibson 015S Nissan on a staggered pit strategy compared to the rest of the LMP2 field.

The second safety car was called after Garry Findlay crashed the Murphy Prototypes car into the barrier on the exit of Bruxelles.

The field went green again just before the two-hour mark, with barrier repairs completed. However, Remy Striebig soon crashed his Pegasus Racing Morgan Nissan at the same spot, bringing the safety car out for the third time.

With the field running behind the safety car, Dolan leads with Julien Canal second for Greaves Motorsport. The pole-sitting DragonSpeed car is fourth, while Thiriet by TDS Racing is sixth after leading earlier.

Thomas Laurent leads LMP3 for M.Racing-YMR, but it is the No. 9 Graff Ligier JS P3 Nissan that has led most of the race so far.

Rob Smith and JMW Motorsport are out front in GTE, a class which has had several lead changes in the opening two hours.
