Two months ago, we returned to the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans with Toyota Racing’s TS030 HYBRID. Even under tremendous time pressure – with just a few weeks to get the second car ready for the big race – we arrived at the epic La Sarthe circuit in France, both cars raring to go. Our drivers ran well, even taking the lead from the Audi LMP1 cars a few hours into the race. Now, you can relive the 80th 24 Hours of Le Mans with our exclusive video documentary after the break.
The race is over for Toyota Racing at the 80th 24 Hours of Le Mans. After being pushed right to the back of the LMP1 class after a protracted repair session, the #7 car was forced to retire with further issues. We will update you with the details shortly.
Update: 05:00 CET: Our final race report is now available after the break.
“Anthony Davidson was taken to the circuit medical centre following his accident during the Le Mans 24 Hours. Doctors at the circuit have confirmed that Anthony is suffering from shock and back pain, however there are no signs of any injuries and he is walking and talking with no problems. He will be taken to a local hospital for precautionary checks but the team is relieved and happy to hear he is okay. Further updates will follow in due course.”
Update: 00:30 CET: Anthony’s team mates Stéphane Sarrazin and Sébastien Buemi have visited him in a local hospital where he is undergoing precautionary checks. He will stay there until Monday.
We’re all very happy to hear that he is OK and we wish Anthony all the very best! Our report after 8 hours after the break.
