    Toyota has won the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours with the Number Eight car – driven by Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Fernando Alonso. Kazuki Nakajima drove his Toyota to victory on Sunday in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, giving the top podium spot to a Japanese manufacturer for the first time since 1991. Nakajima and co-drivers Sebastien Buemi and Fernando Alonso made 388 laps at the 13.626-kilometer Circuit de la Sarthe en route to Toyota's first victory.

    Speaking about the win, Kazuki Nakajima said, “It’s great to be here finally; it has been a long time. I am almost speechless. I had great team-mates and Toyota gave us a very strong car. We finished the race without any issue on both cars so I feel we all deserved to win the race. To win this race has been a big dream for all of Toyota since 1985. There have been many people involved in this project so I am proud to be here to represent all that effort.”
