Norris/Verstappen entry rejoins Le Mans Virtual

The 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual has restarted after a second red flag due to technical issues with the race servers halfway through the 19th hour.

Earlier in the race a red flag was shown towards the end of the fifth hour for a 30-minute stoppage to resolve server issues. 

A radio message from race direction was sent to all teams to prepare them for a second red flag with four-and-a-half hours of the race to go, with all drivers pulling up on the starting grid behind the leading #1 Rebellion Williams Racing driven by Nikodem Wisniewski.

But the red flag has eaten up the leaders’ healthy advantage, which had stretched to the length of a pit stop, with Formula 2 driver Jack Aitken in the #13 Rebellion Williams having pitted a lap before the red flag.

Overnight the #20 Team Redline, with Formula 1 drivers Max Verstappen and Lando Norris in the line-up, had retired from the lead due to a series of technical issues, but the stoppage has allowed the team to rejoin the race in last place in the LMP class, 18 laps behind the leaders.

The #4 ByKolles remains in third place driven by Jasper Pedersen, ahead of the #33 2 Seas Motorsport team in fourth place but a lap down on the leaders.

In the GTE class, Ayhancan Guven currently leads under red flag conditions in the #93 Porsche but has lost a three-minute advantage over the Romain Grosjean-run #80 R8G Esports squad driven by Risto Kappet, with the #92 Porsche in third place in class one lap down.

approaching the end of the fourth hour, with the McLaren F1 driver at the wheel.

Motorsport.tv and Motorsport.com are streaming the entire event, with coverage starting from 1:30pm BST on Saturday. There will also be full coverage of all the action and updates across the Motorsport Network's websites and social media accounts
