The #54 Spirit of Race is in the pits, along with most GTE-Ams.

The #84 JMW (Roda, P47, 4th GTE-Am) has pitted a lap prematurely.

Thomas is 6 seconds ahead of his pursuer and is due to pit next lap. Damage limitation appears to be succeeding.

Thomas is starting to speed up and is now only 1.8 seconds a lap slower than his pursuers.

Thomas has dropped to 3rd, alas. He is 3 seconds a lap slower than the #88 Dempsey (Roda P47, 4th GTE-Am) and the gap is 15 seconds. It will be very close between them at the pit stop if this continues.

Mystery #2: how did the #77 Dempsey (Andlauer P44) get past the #84 JMW (MacNeil P46)?

Come to think of it... ...probably the same way he just got past Thomas. Our car is now 2nd in class.

Meanwhile the #91 Porsche (Makowiecki P30, 2nd GTE-Pro) has a warning for track limits.

(It's lap 33 now, by the way, so Thomas is not due to pit for another 6 laps. I am worried).

Thomas has logged a 4:40 minute lap! This is bad because the other GTE-Ams have done 4:09s. Where did he lose 31 seconds?

The gap is now 32 seconds. It's possible Thomas may be able to hold on until the pit stop. The commentators have also commented that Thomas and Francesco (Castellaci, who's going to have the car next time there's a driver swap) have learned a lot from Fisico.

I've found the explanation... ...I was reading the wrong column. Thomas is 7 seconds a lap slower than the chasing car, which is a problem. At this rate, the cars will meet in 7 laps, the lap before the pit stop is due.

Gap is down to 40 seconds, and again it's not clear why. The #54 is still over a second a lap faster - I wonder if there's been a quick spin for Flohr?
