The ranking point:

We have a new leader after the first eight hours of racing. Indeed, with an offbeat strategy, the # 66 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Audi Sport Team Attempto Racing (Frederic Vervisch) is leading the 2020 24 Hours of Spa at midnight.

However, the “real” leader remains the # 88 Mercedes-AMG GT3 Mercedes-AMG Team AKKA ASP still driven by Raffaele Marciello. Fifty seconds separate them. Rowe Racing's # 98 Porsche 911 GT3-R (Nick Tandy) is 3rd. Another Porsche follows, the # 54 of Dinamic Motorsport (Matteo Cairoli) in front of the Ferrari 488 GT3 # 51 AF Corse (Alessandro Pier Guidi), 5th.

The other officially supported Mercedes-AMG, the # 4 of Mercedes-AMG Team HRT is 6th ahead of three Porsche 911 GT3-Rs: the # 47 of KCMG, the # 22 of Frikadelli Racing and the # 12 of GPX Racing. K-Pax Racing's Bentley Continental # 3 closes the top 10. However, that makes us five 911s in the top 10!

The Lamborghini Huracan GT3 # 63 Orange 1 FFF Racing Team that was in the lead for a long time has not disappeared, it has just shifted in terms of refueling. She is 12th.

Pro Am : No change from our 6th hour point. Garage 59’s # 188 Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 leads ahead of SKY – Tempesta Racing’s # 93 Ferrari 488 GT3 and Barwell Motorsport’s # 77 Lamborghini Huracan GT3.

Silver : The Lamborghini Huracan EVO # 78 of Barwell Motorsport (Patrick Kujala) is still well attached to the head of its class and precedes the Mercedes-AMG GT3 # 5 of HRT and the Mercedes-AMG # 89 of AKKA ASP which points its nose for the first time on the provisional podium.

Am : The Lamborghini Huracan # 129 from Raton Racing is still the leader.
