With 1.5 of 10 hours run in the Petit LeMans we are currently under full course yellow when Jose Gutierrez got upside down in the #52 Ligier.

Tequila Patron ESM leads the Motul Petit Le Mans Ryan Dalziel is currently out front in the No. 2 Nissan Onroak DPi while Bruno Senna is second in the sister ESM car.

The race went under full course caution for ten minutes following an incident between the pole-sitting Team Penske Oreca 07 Gibson of Helio Castroneves and Matteo Cressoni’s Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3.

The Ferrari dropped a wheel onto the grass sending it into the back of the Oreca. Both cars returned to the pits but Cressoni was given a penalty for entering a closed pit lane.

Castroneves lost one lap due the incident and runs outside of the top-20 overall.
