"I've never been shy about my aim of winning motorsport's Triple Crown", Alonso said. He's already bagged the Monaco race, and past year he came close to bagging the Indy 500 but was ultimately let down by engine failure, something he's had to become accustomed to in F1 since his 2015 switch from Ferrari to McLaren.
Alonso, who last week made his Rolex 24 at Daytona debut, in which issues with the vehicle saw him finish down in thirty-eighth, will continue his endurance racing legacy as he takes another step to securing the triple crown.
Alonso will join two former F1 drivers in Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima as the driver line-up for the No 8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid, meaning that another ex-Grand Prix star in Davidson drops out of the line-up.
Fortunately he will have one of the most competitive cars in the WEC as he'll be behind the wheel of Toyota's TS050 Hybrid, which won 5 of the 9 rounds held last season.
"To Fernando Alonso, I say thank you so much for choosing Toyota as a partner for making your Le Mans dream come true", said Toyoda.

Le Mans, one leg of the Triple Crown - the others being the Monaco Grand Prix and Indy 500 - takes place the week in between the Canadian and French Grands Prix on June 16 and 17.
Alonso said, "Endurance racing is a different discipline compared to single-seaters and I enjoyed my first taste of it at Daytona.[.] It will be a steep learning curve for me but I am ready for this challenge and I can't wait to get started". "Last year, we came to the joint decision to go racing with Fernando at the Indy 500 rather than at the Monaco Grand Prix".
"My deal to race in WEC was only made possible through the good understanding and strong relationship I have with McLaren".
'In no way will this challenge take away from my main target of Formula One with McLaren.
And I think everybody within our organisation appreciates that a motivated, hungry and happy world-class driver such as Fernando is a formidable asset for any team in F1, ' said Zak Brown, head of McLaren's F1 team.
