Drivers' and manufacturers' titles in FIA World Endurance Championship with TS040 HYBRID, designed, developed and built at TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH
TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH is extremely proud to have designed, developed, manufactured and operated the TS040 HYBRID LMP1 car, which won the drivers' and manufacturers' titles in the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship.
The TMG-based project, in just its second full season of WEC competition, was the class of the field and secured a deserved double title in the final round of the season, the Six Hours of Sao Paulo. The TS040 HYBRID won five of its eight races in 2014, taking four pole positions, 12 podium finishes and four fastest laps. It finished on the podium in every race.
The car was designed by TMG's specialist engineers, using cutting-edge development tools, such as our high-capacity CFD cluster and advanced simulation technology. Hardware-in-the-loop testing, using TMG's extensive range of R&D facilities fine-tuned the TS040 HYBRID concept before production, with most of the chassis and components built in-house at TMG.
