H20: Audi duo remain in control

#9 Audi R15 plus. Le Mans, 2010Romain Dumas and Andre Lotterer are holding station in the #9 and #8 Audis as the German manufacturer moves nearer to a surprise Le Mans victory.

The pair are separated by two minutes as they continue to reel off lap after lap at the head of the field. Alex Wurz is now at the controls of the #1 Peugeot, but still one lap down.

Allan McNish is still fourth in the #7 Audi, but Loic Duval is now just 1m30s behind and closing in at four seconds per lap.

Juan Barazi has had two more offs in the #009 Aston Martin, but managed to hand it over to Darren Turner in sixth place, over a minute ahead of the #15 Kolles Audi.

There was more drama for Aston Martin when the #008 Signature car went straight on into the wall at the first Mulsanne chicane.

The Highcroft HPD's challenge has fallen away due to a persistent problem with the cooling system, leaving the Strakka car eight laps clear in LMP2.

In GT1, the Larbre Saleen is back on course after its earlier off and maintains a comfortable five-lap advantage over the Young Driver Aston Martin.

Richard Lietz is now at the wheel of the #77 Felbermayr Porsche in the lead of GT2. The 911 is two laps clear of the Hankook Ferrari, with the BMS Scuderia Italia Porsche in third.

The sole remaining BMW has been pulled back into the garage for repairs, while the Prospeed Porsche has spun into the gravel at Indianapolis for the second time in two hours.
