The night has not clarified the hierarchy in the LMP2 class. The race has been under safety car since 3.45 am due to heavy rain. With eight hours to go, 13 ORECA 07s are still battling it out to win the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Little has changed in the LMP2 category since midnight. It has to be noted that the drivers did not have much choice but slow down in the past eight hours. Indeed, due to both race incidents and weather conditions, the race director had to call out the safety car.

Just after 3 am, heavy rain poured down on Le Mans. Given the lack of visibility due to water splashes and night-time conditions, the safety car came out. As the rain intensified, the pace got significantly slower until the early hours of the morning. Some teams took advantage of this long neutralization period to make strategic choices that could prove crucial at the end of the race.

As to the standings, AF Corse’s #183 ORECA 07 entrusted to François Perrodo, Ben Barnicoat, and Nicolas Varrone is currently in the lead, ahead of Cool Racing’s #37 ORECA 07 (Lorenzo Fluxa, Malthe Jakobsen, Ritomo Miyata) and United Autosports’ #22 (Oliver Jarvis, Bijoy Garg, Nolan Siegel). The hierarchy should change as soon as the green flag is waved again. Crowdstrike Racing by APR’s #45 ORECA 07 had to throw in the towel after eleven hours of the race.
