With two hours left of this very eventful 80th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans we are getting ready for the trophy presentation. Currently the #1 R18 etron hybrid is in first place followed by the #2 R18 etron hybrid and the #4  R18 ultra. The #3 R18 ultra in 5th place and fighting it’s way back into 4th. The past few hours have been very dramatic as both Allan McNish in the #2 car and Marc Gene in the #3 car crashed their cars causing significant front-end damage. Both were able to drive their cars back to the pits but lost significant time and their places. The #2 car was repaired in less than 6 minutes while the #3 damage was a bit worse and took more time.
