The 86th Le Mans 24 Hours ended at 3 pm on Sunday 17 June with a historic one-two finish for Toyota. It was the first time that the Japanese team had triumphed in the legendary French endurance race. Meanwhile Porsche celebrated its 70th anniversary with two GT wins.
The 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans was certainly an action-packed affair. It got off to a glorious start with a flyover by the French national air display team, and culminated with Toyota’s first Le Mans triumph (with Fernando Alonso on the winning team). Other highlights include the tough battle in LMP2, some stunning clashes in LMGTE Pro with the win ultimately going to Porsche and the #92 911 RSR sporting a special livery in tribute to the 1970 Pink Pig, and victory on home turf for a Frenchman, Julien Andlauer (#77 Porsche 911 RSR for Dempsey-Proton Racing) in the LMGTE Am class.
