•    By lap 107, Andy had made up places and sat P33, and on lap 114 he broke in to the top 30, with lap times on par with the leaders.
•    Andy will stop for fuel and tyres imminently, and hand the car over to Steven Kane.

Car 8, P42:
•    As per #7, Antoine Leclerc pitted as soon as the race restarted and made way for Jérôme D’Ambrosio, who makes his first career appearance in a night race.
•    Jérôme’s pace has been good and he’s steadily closed on the cars ahead, climbing to P42 at the seven hour mark.
•    Jérôme will continue in the car for a double stint.
