Toyota continues to be the dominant force. Toyota won the 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit for the fifth year in a row and has now achieved a double. The N.8 car has regained its position as the top-ranked hypercar after winning the 2018 and 2020 editions. It had lost it last year to Toyota N.7. This is the fifth consecutive win in the top category of hypercars, one year before the return to motorsport's big names: Ferrari, Porsche and Audi, BMW, Cadillac... All will race at Le Mans in June 2023 for the 100th anniversary of the race.
This is the fourth victory for Sebastien Buemi of Switzerland in the race. It also marks the third win for Brendon Hartley from New Zealand and the first for Ryo Hirakawa. Buemi, 33, has previously driven in F1 since it was created and has been a major driver of the Formula Electric championship (champion 2016).
The Oreca N.38 Jota team won at the lower level. The Porsche N.91 Porsche team won at LMGTE Pro. This was due to the fact that the Corvettes had to retire 20 minutes apart at the beginning of the morning. Aston Martin N.33 of TF Sport won LMGTE Am. Eight of the 62 cars that started the race did not finish, but it is not to be regretted.
