HubAuto Corsa holds command of the California 8 Hours with two hours to go.

The No. 27 Ferrari 488 GT3 of Tim Slade has a 6-second lead over the No. 42 Team Schnitzer BMW M6 GT3 of Chaz Mostert, with the No. 999 GruppeM Mercedes-AMG GT3 in third, in what’s remained a caution-free race.

Porsche’s chances of victory now lies solely with the No. 911 Park Place Motorsports entry of Mathieu Jaminet, which runs in fourth after losing ground during Romain Dumas’ stint.

Both BMWs have faced setbacks, with a drive-through penalty for Martin Tomczyk after contact with the No. 29 Land Motorsport Audi R8 LMS Evo of Markus Winkelhock.

Mikkel Jensen in the No. 34 Walkenhorst BMW also was served a drive-through, but for being under the minimum pit stop time.
