H9: Race remains under yellow

#2 Audi, Le Mans 2011The #2 Audi R18 of Andre Lotterer continues to lead at Le Mans, with the field still running behind the safety car while repairs are effected on the barrier at the scene of Mike Rockenfeller's earlier accident. The course is not expected to be green-flagged until 0015.

All the factory Peugeots remain in the race, headed by the #7 entry driven by Marc Gene in second place. Sebastien Bourdais is close behind in third, while the #8 car which was delayed in the pits during the first safety car period is nearly a lap behind in fourth.

ORECA's year-old 908 fifth and a lap down, but it has two laps in hand over the leading petrol-powered LMP1. The #16 Pescarolo-Judd driven by Christophe Tinseau held a narrow lead over Nicolas Prost's Rebellion Lola-Toyota but had to pit on lap 125, letting Prost through but emerging ahead of the second Rebellion car driven by Guy Smith, which is at the other end of the lap in eighth place.

Not content with pulling a quadruple stint this afternoon, Alexandre Premat is back at the wheel of the LMP2-leading #48 ORECA-Nissan, with a lap in hand over the #41 Greaves Zytek currently driven by Olivier Lombard.

Oliver Gavin remains aboard the GTE Pro-leading #74 Chevrolet Corvette, ahead of the #59 Luxury Racing Ferrari driven by Jaime Melo. Marc Goossens is running third in class in the #75 Porsche.

The leading trio in GTE Am are on the same lap, headed by Christophe Bourret in the #70 Porsche. The pursuing #50 Chevrolet and #57 Krohn Ferrari are a minute and a half behind.
