A total of 28 laps have been turned thus far around the 8.469 mi circuit. Chasing its first win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Toyota is leading in the 2nd hour today, Saturday with Audi pushing hard. Alexander Wurz’s Toyota No. 7 started from pole position on the grid and had a lead of 37 seconds over Marco Bonanomi’s Audi No. 3 after 19 laps. Andre Lotterer’s Audi No. 2 was in third place, followed by Nicolas Lapierre’s Toyota No. 8 and Tom Kristensen’s Audi No. 1.

In its return to Le Mans after a 16-year absence in the top category, Porsche’s chances took a blow. Neel Jani’s Porsche No. 14 started from second but slipped to 50th because of a 15-minute pit stop. Timo Bernhard’s Porsche No. 20 was in sixth place, one lap off the pace.
