Toyota Motorsport Legends Together at Last: TS010, TS020 and TS030

Submitted by on December 23, 2016

Toyota Motorsport TS020 GT One

Toyota has built some truly exceptional, and exceptionally exciting, race cars through its history. In this video, Toyota Motorsport tells the story of three of their 24 Hours of Le Mans contenders.

The marque has come agonizingly close to winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans multiple times, coming away with a collection of second-place finishes. Most recently, in 2016, Kazuki Nakajima was leading the race in the Toyota TS050 Hybrid when the car lost power just minutes before the chequered flag. Porsche slipped by to take their 18th win and the Toyota’s second Toyota TS050 Hybrid would take second.

In this video, Toyota brings together their TS010 from 1991, the TS020 ‘GT-One’ from 1998 and the TS030 that debuted in 2012 to talk through their stories. It goes into the car’s histories and offers some brilliant insight into the development and progression of the cars. Sydney’s Eastern Creak International Raceway even makes a little cameo.
