Former Formula One driver Kamui Kobayashi drove the No.7 Toyota GR010 Hybrid Hypercar [along with Mike Conway and Jose Maria Lopez] to victory – just a mere 2.168 seconds ahead of their Toyota sister No. 8 car [driven by Sebastien Buemi, Brendon Hartley and Ryo Hirakawa] in the initial round of the 1000 miles of Sebring 2023.
It was the 40th win in the World Endurance Championship for Toyota.
The FIA World Endurance Championship is the world’s premier international sportscar championship, contested over seven rounds across North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. With multiple cars across three categories (Hypercar, LMP2 and LMGTE Am) all on track at the same time.
