Laurens Vanthoor injured in pad

Defending race winner Van Toll shared the # 47 KCMG Porsche 911 GT3 R with Nick Tandy and Maxim Martin.

However, just beyond the 16-hour mark, Porsche announced that Vantor was forced to withdraw from the rest of the race and teammates Tandy and Martin were forced to complete the race as a duo.

Vantor later tweeted that he was knocked down by a quad bike in the paddock while riding a scooter.

A Belgian racer added, “I’ve landed badly on my head and have multiple scars on my face. I’m fine, but I’m currently doing more checks and stitching at the hospital.”

Garage 59 Aston Martin Vantage GT3, which made a technical pit stop in the green flag condition immediately after the halfway mark, is the only other car in the lead lap in 3rd place where Ross Gun held the steering wheel.

One of the winning candidates, the pole-sit # 88 ASP Mercedes AMG GT3, dropped out of the race around 16 hours due to a broken left rear damper. Jules Gounon continued to lap within seconds of the pace despite the problem, before the problem became too serious to continue.
