Peugeot still leads the Le Mans 24 Hours after 13 hours although several of its cars have encountered reliability problems.
Nicolas Minassian took over the leading #2 Peugeot from Stephane Sarrazin and maintained a consistently quick pace in front, stretching away from the #8 Audi R15 Plus in second.
The #8 Audi made an unscheduled stop for new tyres just one lap after Andre Lotterer had pitted. He had picked up a right-rear puncture on his out lap.
Romain Dumas pitted the #9 R15 Plus and handed over to Mike Rockenfeller near the end of the hour, allowing Lotterer back through to second place. Tom Kristensen lies fifth in the #7 car having ceded fourth place to Peugeot's Alexander Wurz when he came in for a routine stop at the end of the hour.
Aston Martin's trio of V12 coupes remain the quickest petrol-powered prototypes. The #007, #008 and #009 lie in seventh, eighth and 10th places, split by Christian Bakkerud in the sole remaining Kolles Audi.
Rebellion Racing suffered its second retirement when Neel Jani halted the #12 car just before the Ford chicane on his out lap after a routine pitstop. Jani reported that the car had lost drive.
Strakka Racing has a two-lap advantage in LMP2, although Highcroft's Marco Werner made up ground to Strakka's gentleman driver Nick Leventis. Jan Charouz is a further two laps down in the #35 Oak Racing Pescarolo.
In GT1 the #50 Larbre Saleen continues to circulate in the lead in the hands of Julien Canal, albeit at GT2 pace. The second-placed #73 Corvette had a long stop to fix a blocked fuel regulator and dropped further away.
Romain Grosjean is an average of four seconds a lap quicker than both in the #60 Ford GT, but is nine laps behind the leader.
The JLOC team's much-improved showing looks to have come to an end; its Lamborghini Murcielago remains in the garage with a sickly gearbox.
Oliver Gavin leads the GT2 class in the #64 Corvette, almost a complete lap ahead of the #63 car, now driven by Jan Magnussen. Patrick Long is a distant third in the #76 Porsche.
