Le Mans, France, Audi R8's are leading the 24 Hours of Le Mans at sunrise more than six laps ahead of the fourth place Cadillac.

The Audi R8 driven by Biela/Pirro/Kristensen is leading Le Mans in the early morning having completed 246 laps.

The race, so far, for the number eight car has been relatively uneventful. "We have had two punctures on in the front and one in the rear. We have changed the front brake pads, which is usual for Le Mans," said Frank Biela.

Team Joest serviced the number eight car at thirty-four minutes past seven a.m., installing tires, fuel and front brakes and a driver change in two minutes and nine seconds.

In second place, the number nine car of McNish/Ortelli/Aiello, is lapping at a steady pace trying to catch his teammate for the lead, but is over two minutes behind the leading Audi.

The number seven car of Abt/Alboreto/Capello is one lap down.
