Official Review of the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016 - the World's Greatest Endurance Race
With their eighteenth overall win at the 24 hours of Le Mans Porsche can be said to have come of age in 2016.
However, if wisdom comes to those who face extreme adversity surely Toyota must be wise well beyond their years.
With just three minutes left in the race after 24 hours of racing the new Toyota TS050 hybrid looked set for a sensational debut win – until fate stepped in.
The official twitter account summed up the feeling with just one word: “Heartbroken”.
Ford managed the feat of a debut victory with their new GT in the LMGTE Pro class, fifty years after the first win of the famous GT40.
With weather playing a role, once more, and a fiercely competitive field of evenly matched machines and drivers, the stage was set for a dramatic race and the reality didn’t disappoint.
The official review features all of the amazing highlights from one of the most closely fought races in years, where there were never more than a few laps between the leaders.
With the now familiar Radio Le Mans commentary lending a real flavour of the live event to the review, if you couldn’t be at the Circuit de la Sarthe for this historic showdown the official review is the best way to enjoy one of the greatest sporting spectacles on the planet.
These reviews get better every year,and this year is no exception.I have all the Le Mans reviews from 1980 they are all good but this is by far the best .The last 10 minutes of the race when Toyota were leading only to have mechanical problems after nearly 24hrs of racing is really exciting as Porsche take the lead and the win.It does"nt get much better than this,unless you were there.
