At the heart of the TOYOTA Racing TS030 HYBRID challenging in the FIA World Endurance Championship is our innovative TOYOTA HYBRID System – Racing. Our petrol hybrid powertrain recovers energy under braking at designated energy recovery zones and delivers an incredible 300hp boost automatically as the car accelerates out of the corner. Find out more about how our hybrid racing technology works and see our exclusive video and CGI images after the break.
The race is over for Toyota Racing at the 80th 24 Hours of Le Mans. After being pushed right to the back of the LMP1 class after a protracted repair session, the #7 car was forced to retire with further issues. We will update you with the details shortly.
