They still continued to challenge the Rebellion Williams cars at the front of the pack.

In GTE, #94 Porsche Esports crashed in sector 3 which led to them losing a wheel. Furthermore, there was no driver available to take over following its repairs, respective of stint times.

As a result, the #94 faced retirement, alongside the Toyota GAZOO Racing ARG #10 which had crashed and could not continue.

Team Redline’s only entry, their collaboration with the JOTA Sport Team in the #37, ran strong in P6 overall but crashed in sector 2. They fell down to P14 due to repairs, including a missing rear wing (aero) and damaged bodywork.
