Video: 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans – Scene of Toyota No. 5 shutting down

This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race turned out to be an extraordinary battle. Porsche, the winner of this year’s race, and FIA WEC have posted highlight videos on their official websites.

Amongst those posted, one video that’s worth noting is “HIGHLIGHTS 1200-1300 Hours,” which recaps the last hour of the race before the finish line.

While running in top spot, the Toyota TS050 Hybrid No. 5 slows down due to technical problems just before the finish line.

Then, it shuts down completely in the middle of the track. In addition to team Toyota, amongst those in disbelief of this unimaginable incident was none other than actor Brad Pitt, who waved the flag to start the race.

This unfortunate accident is shown at around the 3-minute mark of the video provided by FIA WEC.
