The beat goes on for Toyota Gazoo Racing.
For the fifth straight year, the team had the winning car during the world’s oldest endurance racing event, as the trio of Sebastien Buemi, Brendon Hartley and Ryo Hirakawa came away with the win in their Toyota GR010 Hybrid hypercar.
On Saturday, the 91st edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans begins, with Toyota Gazoo Racing looking to break its tie with Scuderia Ferrari (1960-64) for the longest winning streak by a team in the race.
The team of Buemi, Hartley and Hirakawa will be back together during the race, with Buemi searching for his fourth win in the past five years.
Among the notable drivers in this year’s race will be NASCAR’s entry in Garage 56, with Jimmie Johnson racing alongside Jenson Button and Mike Rockenfeller in a Hendrick Motorsports modified Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
Here is everything you need to know about the weekend’s race, including start time and entries for the race.
