We are one hour into the race. The Ferraris are very quick. After pit stops Fermin Velez went back into the lead quite handily. First full course yellow for Almo Coppelli in the Agusta Callaway LM600, who cut a rear tire down, then spun and flat spotted and blew out the other three going into turn one about 25 minutes into the race. He didn't hit anything and should rejoin.

Courage was just pushed back to the garage area at 2 p.m.

78 cars started. Nos. 96 GTS-3 and 15 GTS-1 did not make the initial start. 96 has since rejoined the race and 15 will "start" after making driveline repairs.

Second full course yellow flies at 2:25 p.m. for a couple cars stopped on course, including No. 44 GTS-3.

more to come, sooner or later...
