Latest post of the previous page:

Gap between the Toyota's and the non-hybrids is way too big. But this late BoP change ruined it for the latter ones.

Conway comes into the pits now. Alonso stays out, that could be the wrong decision.

Alonso stays in front. He has to short shift: gearbox temps are going up.

The GT-Pro/Am is to me the most exiting class.

Very interesting to see an active f1 driver winning in another class. This is a very great spot for motorsport in general

Yes it is good to see an active F1 driver doing multiple disciplines, however the shine is taken off his accomplishment by Toyota not having any competition.

Yeah the battle between the two Astons of Lamy and Hankey for the class win was intense right to the last lap and the chequered flag. It could have gone either way.
I was hoping to see a similar finish in LMP1 between the two Toyotas after Conway got to within less than a second after the final SC, but his challenge on Alonso fizzled out in the last few laps. Mind you I think the #7 car dodged a bullet with the dubious restart where he seemed to pass before the (re)start line. It was under review for ages before being allowed.
Enjoyable race though

Probably used the Tupolev Wind Tunnel. And sponsored by Aeroflot? :wink:

Wow. It was a genuine Mercedes like moment. Good find.
It looks like Isakyan short cut the entrance to Radillon and hit the kerb with both front wheels, which I guess got the car nose up and from there he was along for the ride.

Here is the clip in embedded form.

2018 24 Hours of Le Mans Test Day - how things stand at 15:00

There was quite a lot going on at the start of this afternoon, with the two Toyotas going head-to-head, relegating Rebellion to third and fourth. Alpine has taken the lead in LMP2.

Things have shifted up a gear this afternoon with an excellent lap from Kamui Kobayashi in the #7 Toyota TS050 Hybrid with a time of 3:20.008, putting him at the top of the standings. He didn’t stay there long, however, as Fernando Alonso in the #8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid soon became the first driver of the day to dip below the 3:20 mark! The skirmish at Toyota Gazoo Racing was detrimental to the #3 Rebellion R13-Gibson, relegated to third place. Stéphane Sarrazin achieved the fourth best time at the wheel of the BR Engineering BR1-AER for SMP Racing, placing the car between the two Rebellions.

There was also some upset in LMP2, where Nicolas Lapierre now leads the field. The Frenchman completed a lap in 3:29.205, showing how powerful the #36 Alpine A470-Gibson is. In GTE Pro and GTE Am, there are no changes at the top of the table.



Top of the LMP1 standings:

1. #8 Toyota - Toyota Gazoo Racing - 3:19.066
2. #7 Toyota - Toyota Gazoo Racing - 3:20.008
3. #3 Rebellion R13 - Gibson - Rebellion Racing - 3:21.225


Top of the LMP2 standings:

1. #36 Alpine A470-Gibson - Signatech Alpine Matmut - 3:29.205
2. #40 Oreca 07 - Gibson - G-Drive Racing - 3:30.095
3. #26 Oreca 07 - Gibson - G-Drive Racing - 3:30.176


Top of the GTE Pro standings:

1. #67 Ford - Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK - 3:53.008
2. #69 Ford - Ford Chip Ganassi Team USA - 3:53.881
3. #66 Ford - Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK - 3:53.917

Top of the GTE Am standings:

1. #54 Ferrari - Spirit of Race - 3:56.259
2. #84 Ferrari - JMW Motorsport - 3:57.781
3. #88 Porsche 911 RSR – Dempsey Proton Racing – 3:57.877
