There's now a BMW facing the wrong way after it hit another BMW in Pro-Am class. Oops.

The #50 AF Corse has crashed, causing a full-course yellow. This is seriously bad :(

A bunch of people pitted under full-course yellow. Marco has another 17 minutes of usable time, so may not have been among them.

That said, the damage done to barriers by a GT car that is more or less down to its survival cell could be substantial.

The full-course yellow has been converted to a Safety Car.

The #14 Jaguar failed to follow the Safety Car through the pitlane as instructed, and goes through the debris at the scene of the accident  :-\

The #59 McLaren is stuck in pit entry as the Safety Car period ends.

At some point (probably the initial full-course yellow), Cioci gave the #55 Kapersky Motorsport to Calado, who is 2nd at the restart.

The #14 Jaguar (that forgot to follow the Safety Car through the pits) was black-flagged and quickly un-black-flagged. How strange...

The #17 Audi (piloted by Jamie Green) has visited the barriers, resulting in a full-course yellow.

Make that a Safety Car! James Calado remains 2nd.

That was a brief Safety Car... ...Back to the racing!

Calado nearly managed to pass Caldarelli (who took over from Bortolotti during the second Safety Car) but not quite. It's very close between the two.

A photo of Fisico in the pit garage. He has a look of deep concentration on his face, almost as if he's imagining himself in the car already, deciding what to do with the battle with Caldarelli (that James Calado is currently fighting).

Caldarelli has pitted, meaning Calado is in the lead again :)

Calado just pitted, straight after the 3-hour mark, along with 5 other cars in the leading pack. I believe Fisico is about to get back into the car. Forza Fisico!
