Toyota is crazy fast.
hate to say it but I'm pulling for them to lose again this year if anything just because I want Mazda to continue being the only Japanese manufacturer to have claimed victory at LeMans.

Maybe electrical Gremlins will strike them again late in the race.

Well Porsche lmp1 car wins, Toyotas all suffer mechanical issues. Mazda still only Japanese manufacturer with overall Le Mans win. BTW Jackie Chan-owned lmp2 car finishes second overall and wins lmp2 class after leading overall till overtaken by Porsche ( a faster lmp1 car, back from a mechanical fix) in last hour.
