Porsche snatches win as Toyota self-destructs

Location: Circuit de la Sarthe

At the end of a gruelling race-long battle, Kazuki Nakajima was set to bring the #5 Toyota he shares with Anthony Davidson and Sebastien Buemi across the finish line comfortably ahead of the #2 Porsche 919 Hybrid driven by Neel Jani, Marc Lieb and Romain Dumas. Neel Jani had to make a last-minute pitstop for two fresh tyres with 10 minutes left on the clock, allowing the #5 of Nakajima a clear run to the flag for a maiden Toyota win.
