TMG EV P002 - PIKES PEAK
IN 2012, TOYOTA MOTORSPORT GMBH HAS SENT A REVISED TMG EV P002 TO PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB TO DEFEND ITS ELECTRIC TITLE.
Based on data gained from last year’s record-breaking run of 10mins 15.380secs, engineers at TMG’s electric vehicle technology centre have generated more performance from the TMG powertrain to further improve that mark.
The TMG EV P002 is already the benchmark for electric race cars worldwide, having demonstrated true performance and versatility in establishing the current electric records at Pikes Peak and Nürburgring Nordschleife.
TMG has recent experience of delivering performance upgrades specific to a given track, having used data from its 2011 Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record to improve by over 25 seconds a year later.
Motor speed and torque have been increased while the powertrain’s operating parameters have been tuned to better suit the challenge of the unique 19.99km Pikes Peak track, based on experience gained during last year’s class victory. TOYOTA Racing Development U.S.A. Inc. (TRD USA) performed aerodynamic upgrades to the Radical-based chassis. Dyno and wind tunnel testing as well as track testing supported optimizing overall performance.
