Toyota and Porsche continue to fight for the lead as we approach the final quarter of the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours

After issues for the two Audis and the #1 Porsche we now have a three way fight between both Toyota TS050s and the #2 919 Hybrids.

At time of writing it's the #6 Toyota of Davidson, Buemi and Nakajima in the lead, with the sister TS050 of Sarrazin, Conway and Kobayashi behind and the Porsche of Jani/Dumas/Lieb following closely in third.

The #8 Audi is running two laps behind the leaders, while a turbo issue early in the race has left the #7 8 laps further back. The #1 Porsche, which was plagued by issues and had repeated visits to the garage, is 37th overall and and 38 laps off the lead.

LMP1-L has been a battle of attrition, with all three cars spending as much time in the garage as on the track. The #13 Rebellion was first to retire before the #4 ByKolles CLM came to a fiery end at the Porsche Curves. The #12 Rebellion is still running but is 38th overall.

In P2 the #36 Signatech Alpine leads the #26 G-Drive Oreca and the #37 SMP Racing BR01. The #44 Manor car led in the early stages but spent much of last night in the garage fixing a number of mechanical issues.

GTE Pro is an all-IMSA affair with the Risi Competizione Ferrari leading the two Chip Ganassi USA Ford GTs. A good performance from the #95 Aston Martin sees it waiting in fourth to pick up the scraps if there are issues ahead. The #88 Porsche led GTE-Am for most of the race until an inspired drive by Townsend Bell moved his #62 Ferrari into the top position. The #88 is second and #83 AF Corse is third.

There were big crashes overnight for the #64 Corvette, #35 Alpine and #46 Thiriet. No drivers were hurt.
