Hofor Racing leads the Hankook 12H Zandvoort at the three-hour mark, after opting to stay out on the track in the closing stages of part 1.

The No. 9 Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 of Michael Kroll, Chantal Kroll, Kenneth Heyer, Bernd Küpper and Roland Eggimann did not pit towards the end of the third hour, which means the car will have to make an early stop in tomorrow’s second part of the race.

Ram Racing’s No. 30 Mercedes-AMG GT3 was on its way to secure second place, but just minutes from the end Paul White hit a Porsche and spun. White managed to bring the damaged Mercedes back to the pits for repairs.


As a result of breaking the parc fermé rules the No. 30 Mercedes will start the race with a ten-lap-penalty. The team will have all night to repair the damage.

The No. 911 Precote Herberth Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R inherited second place, while the No. 33 Car Collection Motorsport Audi R8 LMS will line up in third tomorrow morning.


MRS GT Racing leads the 991 class for Porsche 991 Cup cars, currently eighth overall in a field of 43 starters. Three cars did not start the race.

There were four Code 60s in the first two hours, with a total length of 34 minutes and 39 seconds.

The 12H Zandvoort will get underway again tomorrow at 9:20 a.m. local for the remaining nine hours of racing.
