Kristensen improves too in the #2 on a 3:25.433 but remains third on the grid I believe.

Toyotas both out on the circuit - whatever the problem with the #8 in the earlier session it doesn't appear to have been anything too major. The #7 car still lies fourth overall.

Deltawing update: they still need to do the mandatory five flying night laps for Michael Krumm and Satoshi Motoyama. Work to do.

First red flag of the week. The #17 Dome has gone off quite heavily in the Porsche Curves, substantial damage to the front end of the car.

The driver behind the wheel at the time was Seiji Ara - he's fine and out of the car thankfully.

Only 0.291 split the top two cars in combined times. That's Lotterer on pole in the #1 with the #3 second thanks to the time Duval set earlier today.

The #51 car is still being rebuilt in the garage, and the drivers have not completed their mandatory night laps yet. However, with a driver line up of three platinum rated drivers, it is highly likely that it will still be allowed to race. The same could not be said for the #29 though, with two silver drivers and one gold having only completed one lap tonight so far.

Amazing job by the AF Corse crew on the #51 car. Toni Vilander is driving the car out of the pit lane now.

#30 car in the gravel, but no damage. #51 car back in the pits and then out again. Some more work went on that car, but it seems like it'll be going out to set a time to get it off the back row of the grid now.

#51 car has made up some ground as you'd expect, but is third bottom in GTE Pro on a 4:09.771.

The #7 improves to fifth as well with a 3:25.488.

But all eyes remain on Davidson who is improving again.

Can Toyota do it? Davidson is now being shown as being in second place. I'm not sure if that is correct though...I'm confused because the timing screens are slow. :P
