READY TO WIN: Toyota unveiled its revised TS030, which is expected to bring back home the trophies for the Le Mans 24 Hours and World Endurance championship in 2013.

Toyota Racing unveiled its revised TS030 hybrid car, which will play a vital role in the Le Mans 24 Hours and the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in 2013.

Its first full tests will be at Paul Ricard circuit in southern France on Wednesday, February 20, 2013.

IN IT TO WIN IT

After its debut in the WEC in 2012, which included three victories in six races, the team returns with ambition to win both the Le Mans 24 Hours and the WEC title. Alex Wurz, Nicolas Lapierre and Kazuki Nakajima team up again in the #7 vehicle. The #8 will compete outside of Le Mans for the first time, with Anthony Davidson, Stéphane Sarrazin, and Sébastien Buemi driving.

The system used is capacitor-based and delivers 223kW of boost automatically, on top of the 395kW generated by a 3.4-litre, normally-aspirated V8 petrol engine.

The automaker has fine-tuned this year's powertrain to improve power, efficiency, management of component usage and reliability. The vehcile’s chassis has also been modified for the upcoming season, with increased performance, reliability and serviceability the priorities.
