Toyota look set to continue in the FIA WEC and Le Mans


There has been some positive comments from Toyota Gazoo Racing's boss, Shigeki Tomoyama where he indicated that the brand will continue in the LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship.


Speaking in the build-up to the Tokyo motor show, Tomoyama suggested that the new regulations being drawn up to reduce costs and encourage closer competition in the WEC's top division were looking increasingly appealing to Toyota.

“Once things have calmed down, we will make a decision, but we will probably continue to be racing in a new top-flight class which they are looking to create,” said Tomoyama. “We are looking to stay - and only with the goal of winning.”

A final decision on Toyota’s plans is expected to be revealed in December, when WEC and Le Mans organisers outline the new rules package for 2019 and beyond.
