After spending much of the 24-hour classic running at the sharp end of the field, the N°8 Toyota GR010 Hybrid of Sébastien Buemi, Brendon Hartley and Ryo Hirakawa went on to earn Toyota Gazoo Racing’s fifth consecutive Le Mans 24 Hours victory. Second was its N°7 sister car (Mike Conway/Kamui Kobayashi/José Maria Lopez), ahead of the N°709 Glickenhaus 007 of Ryan Briscoe, Richard Westbrook and Franck Mailleux who came third to go one place better than the American constructor’s result in 2021. Its N°708 car (Romain Dumas/Olivier Pla/Felipe Derani) was fourth. The winning Toyota set a new distance-record for the recently-introduced Hypercar category, completing 380 laps of the 13.626-kilometer track to total 5,178 kilometres.
