Toyota will start from pole position after securing a front-row lockout in qualifying, with the Japanese factory team looking to retain the crown that the No 8 car of Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima won last year.
But with 61 cars filling the grid, the competition throughout all four classes will be fierce, and both SMP Racing and Rebellion have shown enough to suggest that Toyota will have to remain on their toes throughout if they are to return to ‘Victory Lane’.
Around 280,000 fans attend the Le Mans 24 Hours, with half of that number travelling across the Channel from the United Kingdom, and British hopes remain as high as ever with Aston Martin on pole in the GTE Pro class.
