Toyota Gazoo Racing Wins Le Mans Toyota Gazoo Racing Wins Le Mans

Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Fernando Alonso in the #8 TS050 HYBRID started from pole position and took the chequered flag after 388 tense and often dramatic laps at the Circuit de la Sarthe to extend their lead in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and Jose Maria Lopez, who led for long periods in the #7 TS050 HYBRID, made it a perfect result for Toyota with second place in front of 256,900 fans.

Toyota, which had entered 47 cars at Le Mans prior to this weekend's race and finished on the podium six times, becomes only the second Japanese manufacturer to win at La Sarthe, while Kazuki is the first Japanese driver to win in a Japanese car.
