Le Mans 24 Hours, June 17-18, 2017
Toyota saw their first ever victory at Le Mans cruelly snatched away from them on the final lap after 24 hours of gruelling, sleepless work unravelled in the space of a few seconds.
Since hitting the front on Sunday morning, the No 5 Toyota of Anthony Davidson, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi proved untouchable, and they looked nailed on to take the Japanese manufacturer's first ever success in the Le Mans 24 hours providing they could stay out of trouble.
They did exactly that but disaster struck when trouble found them. As the Toyota TS050 came onto the start-finish line to start the final lap, the car ground to a halt, allowing the No 2 Porsche of Neel Jani, Romain Dumas and Marc Lieb to pass them and complete the final lap to secure an unlikely victory.
The technical issue that resulted in a sudden loss of power for Kazuki Nakajima on the penultimate lap of the race has been traced to a "defect on the air line between the turbo and the intercooler."
