The factory Toyota team has only ONE car??? WTF??? Besides, they have no chance at Le Mans without at least one previous race start. Oh, and I thought this is a worthy replacement of the Peugeot team... :?

Well, it seems increasingly evident that Toyota's endurance effort has taken a page or two out of their F1 programme...

We're two months away from the Le Mans 24 and they have only one car and it is now damaged beyond repair. Doesn't bode well at all.

Yeah, part of me thinks their times are not good enough to warrant rushing the parts. I hope they can compete @ Le Mans, it would be a shame to have to watch Audi go around the circuit unchallenged.

Think it best to say only one chassis ready today - for sure others are in production. Toyota will discover whether accident was car or driver based . They will appear at Le Mans and give a good performance- in the past they have done the same thing.

All indicators so far point to the the accident being totally not Lapierre's fault.

Also, the rumours floating around say Toyota has made a decision right after the accident to redesign large portions of the car, in order to move the KERS unit to the front wheels, much like Audi and the (now defunct) Peugeot.
