TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Takes on the Challenge of 24 Hours of Nürburgring Endurance Race with New GR Supra and Second-Year Lexus LC

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

The Nürburgring 24 Hours #endurance Race is a demanding #Event that takes place over the course of 24 hours on the circuit that is 25km in length, has a maximum altitude difference of 300m, and features more than 170 corners. #toyotagazoo #racing has competed in this #Event since 2007 with the aim of "refining team members, refining cars" in pursuit of "making ever-better cars", and the race has represented the roots of #toyotagazoo #racing ever since.The employees who compete and grow in such a demanding environment will apply their experience to vehicle development in the future. In addition, the cars competing at the race will incorporate and refine parts and advanced technologies intended for future road cars.

Last year, #toyotagazoo #racing entered the Nürburgring 24 Hours Race with a single #Lexus #LC and managed to achieve its minimum target of completing the race. Still, the team was forced to carry out pit work that exceeded four hours and ended the race with very disappointing results. With this disappointment as a springboard, we have reviewed from the ground up the way we make cars and carried out numerous tests.This is also the first year that the GR Supra* is competing in this race. After competing in the VLN #endurance Championship Nürburgring last autumn, the car has been further refined within this limited time in preparation for this year's 24-hour #endurance race.We will compete this year with these two cars in this 24-hour #endurance race with the goal of running for the full 24 hours and completing the race.
