Car No. 27
Mark Blundell, Julian Bailey, Kevin McGarrity 11 th Overall / 1st in Class

On lap176 car no.26 made an unscheduled stop.
Doug Bebb, team manager, CMS: "Earlier, car 26 had an increase in gearbox temperature and then failed. The temperature on the gearbox of car 27 had shown similar signs so as a precaution we decided to change the transmission."

From 0320 hours: Mark Blundell handed to Julian Bailey @ 0525

Mark Blundell: "The guys have done a great job in changing the gearbox. The balance of the car is fine, no problems at all. Fuel consumption could be better but we're improving. We're now 12 laps clear of the other LMP675 cars so if we can just keep going we'll be happy."
