JTEKT sponsor of the Toyota racing team
On Sunday 17th of June, Toyota won the 86th edition of Les 24 Heures du Mans.
JTEKT, sponsor of the Toyota team congratulates the Toyota Gazoo Racing Team and is honoured to associate its name to this outstanding victory. On board of the hybrid Toyota TS050 (2018 version), team mates, Buemi, Nakajima and Alonso registered the first ever victory of the Japanese brand in the LMP1 (Le Mans Prototypes Hybrid) category.
Already world champion in 2014, Toyota has tried since almost 30 years to write its name to the world's most famous and very competitive race.
Toyota team never gave up to win this race despite some very cruel disillusion like in 2016, when, leading the race, the Toyota car stopped on the track in the last lap of the competition leaving the victory to Porsche 919 hybrid. Now Toyota wrote what is probably the best page of its automobile racing history.
