WEC Season 2018/19: Toyota presents the new TS050 Hybrid
Toyota will be showing its bolides for the upcoming super season 2018/19 of the long-distance World Championship for the first time – but what’s new is only the paint job.
Toyota has released a first picture of the new TS050 Hybrid for the 2018/19 season of the World Endurance Championship (WEC). This is basically the same car as the 2017 season finale in Bahrain – but with a new paint job. As usual, it is available in black, red and white.
Toyota’s new LMP1 bolide has already been tested twice. At the beginning of January, there was a shakedown in Aragon, before a longer test was carried out in the same place last week for the first time. Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso, who will be taking part in this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, also took part in this test.
So far Toyota has only tested with one car. Before the official WEC prologue on the Paul Ricard circuit at the beginning of April, the Japanese want to do two more tests.
