Toyota Gazoo Racing is looking for redemption at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, and it looks to be in the perfect position to get it.
The No. 7 Toyota Gazoo TS050 Hybrid LMP1 will start the 85th running of the historic race from pole following Kamui Kobayashi’s blistering qualifying lap. The Japanese driver pieced together a seemingly faultless lap of the 8.469-mile Circuit de la Sarthe to set a new lap record of 3:14.791.
However, Toyota knows all to well that where you start at Le Mans means almost nothing. The No. 5 Toyota was leading last year’s race after more than 23 hours only to suffer a mechanical failure on the last lap.
Here’s how to watch the 2017 running of the 24 Hours of Le mans online:
