    It's incredible how tough these cars are. 100mph crash and he managed to get back to the pits and within a few minutes he was back out racing again!

    If an F1 car goes over a little bump it stops working.

    Although the safety car system seems a bit terrible putting it politely. I mean, green and yellow flags at the same time, that's just confusing.

    The safety car system, the automated slow zone bit anyway, is new this year so I don't think they've ironed out the kinks too much, though yeah it's got some things needing fixing.

    So as we come up to the 1/4 point of the race, with 18 hours to go, this is what the race is looking like:

    LMP1:
    1. #9 Audi
    2. #17 Porsche - though it's just pitted, was leading before the scheduled pit.
    3. #7 Audi
    4. #19 Porsche

    Audi seem to have the upper hand, the #17 porsche is giving them their biggest challenge and has been leading for most of it, however the #9 Audi has repeatedly set the fastest laps and has been biting on the #17's arse for a lot of it too.


    LMP2:
    1. #47 KCMG
    2. #46 Oreca Thriet
    3. #36 Alpine
    4. #48 Murphy

    Quite a boring class imo, the #47 hasn't been challenged much.

    GTE Pro:
    1. #99 Aston
    2. #64 Corvette
    3. #97 Aston
    3. #91 Manthey Porsche

    Always entertaining The #64 corvette has been in the front for a fair bit and has had to hold off the Astons who were rather fast at the start of the race, though Astons are currently leading.

    GTE AM

    1. #98 Aston
    2. #72 SMP Ferrari
    3. #53 Viper
    4. #83 Ferrari

    Entertaining too, the lead is by no means set to be taken by anyone in particular.

    ------

    Talking points:
    - Porsche 911's reliability seems to be a question, 2 have blown their engines.
    - the Audi #8 LMP1 Crash was insane, took 4 mins in the pits and the car was back out again good as new:

    - The number #42 LMP2 car was in second place for a fair bit, but seemed to lose power, unsure if it has retired but it's lost its position anyway.

    - RAIN is possible though by no means definite, it's passing nearby soon: Doug Schneider on Twitter:


    As I post this, 18:06 mins to go, and it's starting to go dark

    Nice work by the marshalls and crane driver to get #18 Porsche out of it's beaching in the gravel. Audi took the LMP1 lead.
    I'm a bit mental.

    2. #7 Audi
    3. #9 Audi
    4. #17 Porsche

    3. #77 Porsche

    #18 Porsche kissed a wall as D said.
    #31 Ligier (LMP2) kissed a wall, too, a bit more than the P-car. Drove back into the pits while creating sparks and flames and with all lights off.
    No rain whatsoever.

    Also worth noting the #17 penalty (1 minute standing still in the pit box) which is why it dropped to the position it's in.

    And the #97 Aston Martin Art Car blowing its engine too, it was in a good standing for its GTE class, such a shame.

    Another Ferrari, #61, on fire in the pits now.
    Good to see that the racecars aren't so far gone from their street counterparts that they still randomly catch fire too.

    GT Pro Leader #99 Aston in garage changing brake pads


    ... and then takes out the 2nd place LMP2 (#46 Oreca) car at the first chicane. Corvette now leading class.



    Meanwhile the #96 Aston spun out further up the track on its own, narrowly missing collection from other cars, and Ligier #26 deemed to have had unsafe return to track by spraying gravel on track
