Aston Martin Racing's drivers are dialled into the darkness at Le Mans, where both DBR9s have made good progress in the last three hours. Car 009 has taken the lead of the GT1 class and lies fifth overall; car 007, which suffered a cracked oil pipe in the first hour, lies seventh in class and has climbed from 23rd to 14th overall.

Stephane Ortelli (009): "The car feels very good to drive and we can see how competitive we are relative to the opposition. In my stint, I drove as consistently as possible and was quite cautious in the traffic. There is still a long way to go."

Andrea Piccini (007): "It was definitely a stint of two halves for me. The first one was great: the car was handling well and I had very little traffic; the second one was very hard because I was always surrounded by slower cars, which made it harder to maintain consistent lap times. Still, I managed to make good progress up the order and we are going well."
