Toyota has narrowly lost at Le Mans for the fifth time

Toyota came close to winning the Le Mans 24 hour in 1994, 1999, 2014, and again last year when they led until the very last lap, but the biggest prize in sportscar racing keeps eluding the Japanese company. 2017 was meant to be different. A fast 3-car team against weak opposition gave Toyota a perfect opportunity to finally grab Le Mans victory and only a disaster could stop them. The nature of sport is such that a disaster is exactly what happened. All 3 cars hit trouble before half distance and the monkey that has been on Toyota’s back for the last 15 years still won’t let go.
