LeMans Hour 8: Toyota widens lead

Kazuki Nakajima extended Toyota's lead by 12 sec of the Le Mans 24 Hours over Audi through the eighth hour.

Nakajima' #7 Toyota TS040 HYBRID is just too fast for the Audi R18 e-tron quattro of Marcel Fassler

Marc Gene in third place held the gap to teammate Fassler stationary at around 1m16s, while Mark Webber, a lap down in fourth, continued to lose ground in the Porsche 919 Hybrid as Toyota continues to crush the Germans.

The #8 Toyota that crashed in the rain moved up to seventh place ahead of the LMP2 leaders over the course of the hour.
