Toyota has won the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship season-opening 1000 Miles of Sebring

Report says the number seven Toyota GR010 Hybrid driven by Mike Conway crossed the line first.

He sealed victory at the unique concrete Sebring circuit in Florida along with teammates Kamui Kobayashi of Japan and Jose Maria Lopez of Argentina.

While the number eight Toyota of Brendon Hartley, Sebastien Buemi, and Ryo Hirakawa came second.

Meanwhile, the highly-anticipated Ferrari 499P, which took pole position on Thursday with Antonio Fuoco in the number 50, could only manage third, with that same car, driven by Fuoco, Nielsen, and Miguel Molina, finishing two laps behind the winning Toyota.

The race marks a new era in sports car racing, as several factory teams join Ferrari in the top ‘hypercar’ class this year, including Cadillac and Peugeot.

In the second LMP2 class, Britain’s Will Stevens won alongside Yifei Ye and David Beckmann for the Jota team, with French 19-year-old Doriane Pin coming third for Prema.

Report says the 100th anniversary of Le Mans takes place from 10-11 June.
