Night has descended on the Circuit de la Sarthe, and Toyota hasn’t budged from the top of the charts. It’s a race against the track and against themselves now more than it is a race against their competitors. Can the team maintain its dominance, or will it suffer another mechanical failure in the closing half of the race?

This section saw the effects of attrition, with the LMP2 and LM GTE AM classes suffering many of the retirements. Such is the impact of the darkness and exhaustion.

Let's try it out!

#37 Jackie Chan DC Racing LMP2 was black flagged. When the car broke down, the driver called the pit (on a cell phone that’s part of the driver toolkit) and one of the mechanics brought him a part, which he installed and then drove back to the pits. First outright disqualification for that particular issue for a long time.
