The announcement of Toyota’s return to the Le Mans 24 hours comes just weeks after Peugeot’s shock announcement that it stopped its endurance racing programme with immediate effect. Racecar Engineering was invited to the launch of Toyota’s TS030 in France, and in this issue reveals how the company used its Formula One experience and practice, along with a high-tech simulator, to develop a stunning Hybrid car that it hopes will challenge Audi at Le Mans.
They also take a look at how the introduction of the newIndycar, the DW12 from Dallara, will affect preparations for qualifying at the Indy 500 in May. Andy Brown, the former chief engineer at Ganassi, runs through what the teams will need to think about before sending their cars out to qualify for one of the world’s greatest races.
Meanwhile in France, a consortium of companies based at Magny Cours has developed a Hybrid school car, while Toyota has also produced a Hybrid Super GT Prius. We also look at the development by a British company of a 2.7 litre V8 engine for competition in Argentina, and through our business pages explain why Peugeot decided to withdraw from sports car racing, why Formula Three fields may be smaller this year than in previous years, and how the French Grand Prix is on course to return to the Formula One calendar.
