LeMans 22 Hours: Kristensen 2 hours from record 9th win Tom Kristensen, Allan McNish and Loic Duval are just two hours away from a dominant Le Mans victory and for Kristensen it would mean a record 9th overall win, a record unlikely to ever be broken.
Kristensen holds a one-lap lead over Anthony Davidson's 2-seond per lap slower #8 Toyota.
The #8 Toyota has lost third to Oliver Jarvis' #3 Audi but the fight is close.
The fight for GTE Pro honors continues to rage; Darren Turner having taken the lead in the #97 Aston Martin after making a fuel-only stop during the hour, to lead over Richard Lietz replacing Marc Lieb in the #92 Porsche car, which also had a fresh set of tires fitted.
With two hours remaining, Lietz is eight seconds behind Turner, but will be able to go to the end without another driver change, unlike his rival.
Bertrand Baguette's lead at the head of the LMP2 standings is now over two minutes. His OAK Racing teammate Olivier Pla continues to run second - as he has done since early this morning – while Mike Conway holds third in the #26 G-Drive/Delta-ADR ORECA-Nissan that led in the opening hour.
