The Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai is still led 1-2 by Porsche 911 GT3 Rs at the halfway mark but the lead has changed with the Manthey Racing car topping the Herberth Motorsport entry.

Jochen Krumbach is currently behind the wheel of the No. 12 Porsche with a 25-second lead over Brendon Hartley in the No. 911 car.

Herberth Motorsport managed to log 137 laps out front and is still very much in the fight for the lead with 12 hours to go.

While the race has had several short Code 60 periods in the past few hours, the A6 class leaders have all had relatively smooth races so far.

The longest and most recent Code 60 came following an incident between an MSG Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and the Black Falcon Team TMD Friction Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

Behind the two Porsches is polesitter Jeroen Bleekemolen in the Black Falcon Mercedes-AMG GT3, while Flick Haigh is fourth in the Optimum Motorsport-run Audi R8 LMS.

Michael Kroll leads the way in A6-Am in the Hofor-Racing Mercedes, while Anders Fjordbach is the highest non-GT3 runner in the No. 68 Black Falcon Porsche 911 GT3 Cup.
