Geez don't you guys read anything besides Crash stories???

They went blue after first making the decision to run one car in red and one in blue but then realised there wouldn't be enough spares available if they did that.

And why no diesel?... umm probably because Toyota has always pushed the petrol/hybrid thing with their road cars... and Toyota aren't big on diesel road cars

Welcome back Toyota.

I really hope that they have a good car, and can push the Audi, and even spring a surprise, even though I'm a big Audi fan and have been since they first took the quattro to the WRC, it's important that there is competition at the top, I was so disapointed when Peugot withdrew.

I hope that Toyota has a reliable car, that is as good in the wet as in the dry (which was the undoing of Peugot). I realize that they have had very little development time and no race running at all due to their car being sidelined after a testing crash, pace wise they do not seem to be far at all off the Audi, but Le Mans can be such a car killer.

Apparently acording to Carlton Kirby (Oh yes your worst nightmare has come true, he's back on Eurosport, it's been much better without him commenting on the motorsport this year, I really hoped he had retired) anyway enough of the rant! back to Toyota, unfortunately it seem's the No.8 car has a hole in the engine block and they are changing the engine for first qualy, real bad news because I think they are only allowed 2 engines.
