Toyota’s Le Mans hat-trick

Toyota celebrated a third successive victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race yesterday with Kazuki Nakajima taking the checkered flag in the No. 8 car to complete a personal hat-trick. It was also a third triumph in a row at the famed Sarthe circuit for the Japanese driver’s Swiss teammate Sebastien Buemi in the last Le Mans before the start of a new Hypercar era in 2021. New Zealander Brendon Hartley, who replaced double Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso in the eight-car lineup after the Spaniard’s wins in 2018 and 2019, previously won with Porsche in 2017. The race, in its 88th edition, was held for the first time without spectators due to COVID-19.
