Podcast: Toyota's Le Mans 24 Hours curse - will it lift in 2018?

Podcast: Toyota's Le Mans 24 Hours curse

Toyota heads into this weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours as favourite for victory, but to do so it must overcome the curse that has prevented it winning the great race.

The Japanese manufacturer has come agonisingly close to winning in the past, most famously in 2016 when the car of Anthony Davidson, Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima hit trouble on the penultimate lap of the race.

But that was far from the first time it lost the race. Kevin Turner and Damien Smith join Edd Straw to discuss Toyota's Le Mans curse and how the team has prepared for every conceivable scenario to ensure it does win.

There's also a discussion of the best cars and drivers never to have won Le Mans, which includes the famous Toyota GT-One that was in the hunt in 1998 and '99.
