Toyota GT - one
Toyota fought valiantly during the LeMans 24 hour race in 1999 and came close to winning the race. During the final hour of the race, the lone GT-One nr.3 was chasing the remaining BMW for the lead, but while lapping traffic, it suffered a tire failure, and was forced to slowly make its way around the track to return to the pits for a new set.
In the process the GT-One lost the chance to challenge for the lead, and thus lost the race. The lone GT-One would come home 2nd overall, one lap behind the winning BMW.
The video of the tire burst is bellow:
