Toyota has stepped up its preparations for the second leg of the FIA World Endurance Championship with a test at Sebring this week.

Toyota swept to one-two finishes in four of the opening five races of the 2018-19 WEC season, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with the only blot on its record book coming at Silverstone when its cars were disqualified post-race.

The Japanese manufacturer will return to action at Sebring on March 15 for the WEC’s first 1,000 mile race, returning to the track where the series held its inaugural event back in 2012.

Drivers Fernando Alonso, Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima, Mike Conway, Jose Maria Lopez and Kamui Kobayashi have all attended the test, completing running in the Toyota TS050 Hybrid LMP1 car.

It marks Toyota’s first running at Sebring with the LMP1 car, having debuted in the WEC after the 2012 round at the circuit.

An official WEC test is set to take place the weekend before the 1,000 mile race at Sebring, which is the third-to-last round of the super season.
