Kiwis are in strong positions as darkness envelopes the Spa circuit nine hours into the 24 Hour endurance race.
Earl Bamber started the race for the GPX Racing team, though the first two hours was punctuated by a significantly long Full Course Yellow period.
A heavy crash at the top of Eau Rouge eliminated four cars and left the track crew with a big clean-up job.
There were no television replays of the crash, with two drivers transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A heavy rain shower then threw strategy on its head as some drivers gambled to stay out slick tyres, costing them valuable position.
Fortunately, none of the three Kiwi drivers have encountered any major issues and are in solid positions.
The No.22 Porsche driven by Earl Bamber, Matt Campbell and Jaminet Mathieu are currently in 11th overall and tenth in the Pro class.
The team dropped to as low as 16th after the opening two hours but has since made steady progress.
Bamber was also the fastest man through the speed trap for most of the first part of the race and was only recently eclipsed,
Meanwhile, Team Porsche New Zealand are having a ball of race thus far.
Gearbox issues in qualifying meant they started on the second-to-last row of the grid.

Even better, they are third in class and only three-tenths behind second place, with Bamber at the wheel.

Strategies are still in up in the air for everyone but should become clearer ove the next few hours.
