After the security automobile returns, Porsche overtakes Toyota

The No. 6 factory Porsche Penske 963 of Laurens Vanthoor was seconds ahead of the No. 8 Toyota GR010 HYBRID driven by Ryo Hirakawa after 18 hours of racing at Le Mans, with marshals still replacing barriers in Indianapolis in the course of the caution period.

Heart of Racing driver Daniel Mancinelli was being lapped by the number 51 Ferrari LMH automobile when the Italian himself lost control of the number 27 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and hit the barriers hard, sending his automobile flying into the air and landing the other way up on the road . path.

Mancinelli escaped unscathed, but SC intervention was required to recuperate the automobile and replace the tire barriers on the inside the banked left-hander.

Vanthoor's No. 6 Porsche was leading the race by 18 seconds when SC upped the ante again by leapfrogging the No. 8 Toyota within the previous round of pit stops.

Ironically, it was a crash within the sister No. 4 Penske automobile that helped Vanthoor take the lead, with the Belgian pitting within the slow zone attributable to Felipe Nasr losing the rear of his slick-tire 963 entering Indianapolis. The incident eliminated the extra Penske IMSA entry from the race.

The No. 8 Toyota was leading the Hypercar class as much as that time, with Hirakawa making a clean start within the seventeenth hour after racing finally resumed after a four-hour safety automobile break.

Hirakawa pitted a number of laps before Nasr went green, allowing Vanthoor to leap into the lead, but still held a snug second position ahead of the sister No. 7 automobile driven by Nyck de Vries.

De Vries was the primary Hypercar runner to change to slick tires as he was about to pit because he was struggling to manage together with his rivals. However, it also meant he needed to return to the pit stop under the security automobile for more fuel, which lowered his placing.

The fundamental beneficiary was the No. 2 Cadillac as Earl Bamber finished third but had yet to finish a pit stop. Fourth place is occupied by the No. 5 Porsche of Frederic Makoweicki, who overtook Robert Shwartzman within the Ferrari No. 83 AF Corse before the security automobile break.

Antonio Fuoco's #50 Ferrari was right behind the duo and was still in sixth place, ahead of the #7 Toyota, now driven by de Vries' teammate Kamui Kobayashi.

There were loads of changes within the LMP2 class within the last three hours because the order modified during each pit stop phase.

At the top of the 18th hour, Ben Barnicoat returned to the lead within the #183 AF Corse ORECA-07, ahead of the #22 United Autosports automobile, now driven by Oliver Jarvis.

Vector Sport also made progress after placing Platinum-winning Patrick Pilet within the automobile, while the #37 Cool Racing dropped to fourth after Lorenzo Fluxa took over.

In LMGT3, the class-leading No. 92 Manthey PureRxcing Porsche 911 GT3 R retired from contention with gearbox problems as Klaus Bachler brought the automobile into the garage shortly after the race went green again. It took the German team 24 minutes to repair the issue, which meant losing five laps within the lower regions of the highest 20.

Richard Lietz's sister #91 Manthey EMA Porsche took over from Bachler, but dropped to 3rd place at the top of the 18th hour after a pit stop.

This gave Gregoire Saucy the lead within the #59 McLaren 720S GT3 ahead of the #87 Lexus RC F GT3 of Jack Hawksworth.
