Toyota in the lead

This Sunday, at the 8:00 a.m. check-in, the No. 8 Toyota was at the head of the standings for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, ahead of Porsche and Ferrari. The race has been neutralized since the middle of the night, for safety reasons, due to the night.

Toyota at the forefront. This Sunday morning, at the last check-in taken shortly after 8:00 a.m., on the legendary Le Mans track of the Sarthe, 13.626 km long, the No. 8 (Sébastien Buemi – Brendon Hartley – Ryo Hirakawa) occupied first place in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, after a total of 16 hours of racing.

In second place, we find the Porsche n°6 (Kévin Estre – André Lotterer – Laurens Vanthoor), which had started in the lead the day before, while the #50 Ferrari (Antonio Fuoco – Miguel Molina – Nicklas Nielsen) is in third position. Behind, we then find, in fourth position, the other Toyota, the No. 7, entered, for its part, in the premier Hypercars category.

Rain disrupted the race overnight

This race was neutralized for more than four hours, for safety reasons, due to the rain falling in very large quantities on certain portions of this circuit.
In fact, since 3:45 a.m., the various cars entered have been forced to drive slowly. This decision, which had been taken by the commissioners, therefore fixed the positions.

These conditions meant that overtaking was not permitted. Despite everything, the ranking was able to evolve in relation to the various pit stops made by the crews present on the track.
