Audi R18 (2016) #8 (Audi Sport Team Joest), Lucas di Grassi, Loïc Duval, Oliver Jarvis
At the Le Mans 24 Hours, Audi R18 #8 moved forward one place shortly after 11 o’clock, when Porsche #1 had to undergo a long repair in its pit box. Loïc Duval took advantage of a short safety car period for a full pit stop with fuel added and tires changed. By midnight, he was one lap down from the Toyota ahead.
Audi R18 #7 improved its position up to sixth place, despite a short excursion through the gravel, which resulted in the nose of the car needing to be changed.
Positions after 9 hours: 1 Porsche #2 2 Toyota #6 3 Toyota #5 4 Audi #8 5 Rebellion #13 6 Audi #7
