Two hours in the race, there are some incidents happening: The Marcos Mantara LM600 (driven by Cor Euser, Harald Becker and Takashi Suzuki) is smoking badly on one side, it came to the pits and resumed. It is now smoking from both sides. An massive engine oil leak was the culprit later on The Société Pilot Racing Ferrari 333 SP by Michel Ferte suffers from a fuel line problem and struggles to get up along the Mulsanne Hump. Michel Ferte had run the Pilot Ferrari out of fuel, claiming the resrve tank had failed to function. The car was entually brought back to the pits. A scary moment for one of the Porsche 911 GT1s as it goes wide at Indianapolis and narrowly misses the wall. \it was Bob Wollek sending the leading car hard over high kerbing at Arnage. The Newscastle Utd sponsored Lister Storm GTL loses some pieces of its rear bodywork as it approaches the fast Porsche Curves, it would go back to the pits for repairs.
