LeMans this weekend-the Toyota hybrid

If only the Prius sounded this good....turn up your speakers at around 40 secs and listen for the transition from elec to the ICE.....wow.......right now this is the Porsche slayer:

It sounds great when it switches. I think it kinda sounds like a Tie Fighter. But they sadly never beat Porsche or Audi at LeMans

Let’s not split hairs here, they dominated last year -the most mileage in the 24hrs of time, regardless of class…

You're right they did dominate last year, but they were the only hybrids in the field. Kinda difficult not to dominate when the petrol P1's are two+ seconds a lap slower.

I'm not splitting hairs. Toyota never beat Porsche or Audi in the same race at LeMans. Did they come close? Absolutely. I remember when they stopped on the last lap right on the front straight in 2016. It was horrible to watch, but that's endurance racing.

Distance record is also Audi's at 397 laps. Toyota got to 388 last year. Maybe they will get the distance record this year
