Michael Meadows leads the Total 24 Hours of Spa with eight hours remaining, with a margin of ten-seconds in his No. 90 AKKA ASP Mercedes-AMG GT3.

The Brit has a ten-second buffer over Nico Mueller’s No. 1 Audi Sport Team WRT Audi R8 LMS, with the Mercedes taking over the lead from the Audi during the 16th hour.

Luca Stolz currently runs in third position in the No. 4 Black Falcon Mercedes but is yet to make a pit stop, while Vincent Abril runs in fourth despite having a damaged nose on his No. 8 Bentley Continental GT3.

Tom Blomqvist is in fifth position for ROWE Racing while Laurens Vanthoor is sixth despite his Porsche 911 GT3 R serving a three-minute stop-go penalty earlier in the race.

Following a hectic period earlier with the Kaspersky Motorsport Ferrari 488 GT3 crashing, the race has calmed down with no major incidents since Marco Cioci’s collision with Raffaele Marciello in the now-leading car.
