It was a very open race in LM P2 with the #44 Oreca
driven by Roberto Merhi taking an early lead.
After a discreet qualifying session, the Porsche 911
RSRs seemed at home in the tricky conditions prevalent
in the early stages of the race. After two hours, Frédéric
Makowiecki topped the LM GTE Pro standings.
With works drivers Patrick Long and Wolf Henzler at the
wheel, the #88 and #78 Porsches led the LM GTE Am
field. In that class, the #60 Ferrari fielded by Formula
Racing suffered a puncture.
