24 Hours of Le Mans – The lowdown on pit stops (video)

The pit lane is a strategic area where endurance races can be won and lost. At Le Mans, sixty cars stop here to refuel, change tyres and switch drivers. Each action is scrupulously prepared beforehand to allow teams to save time. Dave shows us in slow motion how Toyota manages its pit stops.
