F1 Fanatic - World Endurance Championship
Pretty car!… sad about the shark fin, though, but that’s in the rules…
Looks brilliant. Great to see the white and red colour scheme back again and I hope Alex Wurz can get it fighting amongst the Audis and Peugeots. Those two have been unchallenged at the front for far too long now.
It looks like a Lola chassis.
@fer-no65 I don’t mind them to be honest. And it’s certainly better than having the cars flipping over! (Though it seems they haven’t completed solved that).
That is a great looking thing! The shark fin does sort of spoil it, but head on it looks mega. Quite like the Peugeot 908…
Alex Wurtz driving it? Ok Im in. Good luck to them.
Nice, I’ve been waiting for this. Looks a little gawky at the front, but then again the R18 is no shrinking violet and the 908 looks like an owl.
Looks awful but I guess they’re all going to. It’s the nature of the beast. As AJ said, just hoping that it brings a little more variety to a rather stagnant front end of the sport.
That’s too big to be a shark fin. That’s a whale fin.
It looks like a mix of the Audi with the Peugeot. But it really looks good.
I love this. I love hybrids. I’d love to see the car be competitive, although Peugeot’s departure would make it slightly less impressive if they are.
Looks a lot like the 908 to me, but I guess there are only so many shapes that ‘fit’ the rules.
Really looking forward to seeing them back – the GT-One was cut off in its prime.
Official reveal, Toyota’s embargo on details lifted at 6PM GMT today. Car will be called TS030, in keeping with the F1-engined TS010 of ’92-’93 and the TS020 (GT-One). Brand new 3.4 V8 engine, hybrid system with supercapacitors for storage, so far decision not made on whether it will drive the front or rear axle.
Also, two entries confirmed for Le Mans.
