There’s just two hours left to run now and the Manthey #18 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR has racked up 142 laps and continues to lead. The #1 BMW M3 GT remains in second. As this post goes to air there is a terrific scrap for third place between the #32 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 and the #14 Audi R8 LMS.

Peter Scharmach (NZ) in the #19 Porsche 911 GT3 R looks like being the first Aussie/Kiwi across the line. While the Aussie/Kiwi driver line up in the #248 Honda Civic Type R are looking good for a class win. More below.
