LeMans Hour 8: Kristensen leads for Audi Audi's Tom Kristensen assumed the lead of the Le Mans 24 Hours under caution at the Hour 8 mark at LeMans.
The advantage held by Kristensen's #2 R18 e-tron quattro over the second-placed #8 Toyota of Stephane Sarrazin was a full lap when Sarrazin got caught behind the safety car.
Kazuki Nakajima, driving the #7 Toyota continues to hold third.
Bruno Senna continues to lead GTE Pro in the #99 Aston Martin that was brought to the front earlier in the race by Frederic Makowiecki.
But Richard Lietz is keeping the pressure on the Brazilian and was less than two seconds behind when the safety car came out to allow debris scattered at the Porsche curves by Tor Graves' spinning ORECA-Nissan to be cleared up.
Paolo Ruberti is leading GTE Am in the #88 Proton Porsche.
