Toyota Formally Confirm 2019/20 FIA WEC Programme

Returning with pair of TS050 LMP1 Hybrids

There’s no major surprise at the confirmation overnight from Toyota Gazoo Racing that they will return to FIA WEC competition for the 2019/2020 season with a pair of TS050 Hybrid LMP1s.



The driver line-up for next season is still to be confirmed though looks increasingly unlikely to see Fernando Alonso returning as part of the full season WEC line-up.


The 2019/20 season sees the seventh consecutive full season WEC campaign for the Toyota team, an ever-present after joining the WEC at Le Mans in the opening season of the Championship in 2012.

Since then the team has scored a record 20 overall race wins with their TS030, 040 and now 050 LMP1s including the Manufacturers and Drivers World Championship in 2014 and the Le Mans 24 Hours win in 2018.
