After 24 hours of racing, on Sunday at 4 pm local time, at the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France, Toyota Gazoo Racing claimed a fifth successive victory at the 90th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
As the official timepiece of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, since 2001, and accordingly, “Following the conclusion of this year’s race, the winning drivers stepped onto the podium to receive the 24 Hours of Le Mans trophy and a specially engraved Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, in recognition of the dedication and perseverance required to succeed.”
Next year will be the 100th anniversary (June 11-12, 2023) of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and a special trophy is being designed by Rolex to honor one hundred years and will be officially unveiled later this year at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California on (August 21, 2022). The trophy will then travel onto further events with which Rolex has close ties, including the Goodwood Revival in West Sussex (UK), before it ultimately returns home to Circuit de la Sarthe in June, in time for the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2023.
