Toyota TS040 Hybrid unveiled at Castellet

The 2015 version of Toyota TS040 Hybrid, the world Endurance champion car, was presented on the circuit of Castellet. From the aesthetic point of view no revolution but technical director, Pascal Vasselon, ensures that 80% of the details have been changed. The hybrid system remains in the category 6MJ.

No revolution for Toyota in 2015, but a search of refinement of a product that has already demonstrated high potential in the last season. This is the summary of the presentation of the  2015 Toyota Hybrid, officially shown to the press few hours ago on the starting straight of the circuit Paul Ricard, on which will be held from tomorrow the Prologue of the WEC. The prototype was refined in all parts, with a focus on weight reduction. Major changes also to the suspension, in order of optimizing the use of the tires. Like last season were prepared versions either at high and low downforce, defined after practice sessions previously held at Le Castellet, in Aragon and Portimao. Petrol engine and hybrid system have been improved, with the latter capable of delivering more soft power already declared last year.

From tomorrow, both versions will be on track, allowing us to observe them more closely.
