tjm1323ju1020The 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship season resumes next weekend in Brazil after a 10-week long mid-year break. To help you get back to racing mood, we’ve got the official TOYOTA Racing feature film from the team’s last race, Le Mans 24 Hours.

Launched today, TOYOTA Racing’s “The Ultimate Endurance Race” film gives motorsport fans the chance to relive an exciting, emotion and unforgettable edition of the legendary race in its 90th year.

Not only is the racing action full of twists and turns on and off the track, the #8 TOYOTA Racing TS030 HYBRID also equalled Toyota’s best result at Le Mans with a fine second place after a close fight for the top step of the podium throughout the 24 hours. The film crew were given exclusive access to the TOYOTA Racing team, capturing the legend of Le Mans and the rollercoaster of emotions it generates with top-spec RED EPIC cameras in high definition.

Now the memories of Le Mans are once again fresh in the mind, it’s time to look forward to the next race on the WEC calendar, the 6 Hours of São Paulo at Interlagos.

Interlagos has been a happy hunting ground for TOYOTA Racing. The iconic race track was the scene of the team’s first win in the 2012 FIA WEC season and Toyota’s first win in endurance racing for almost two decades thanks to a superb team performance and flawless drive from Alex Wurz and Nicolas Lapierre.

This year the team arrives in Brazil with the #8 line-up of Anthony Davidson, Sébastien Buemi and Stéphane Sarrazin and an updated TS030 HYBRID but the target remains the same: fight for victory.

Alex and Nicolas, last year’s Brazil winning driver line-up, will continue focussing on the development of TOYOTA Racing’s 2014 car with testing and simulation sessions while Kazuki Nakajima continues defending his Super Formula title while also racing in Super GT.

Track action at Interlagos starts on Friday, August 30 with the race on Sunday, September 1. Don’t forget to follow TOYOTA Racing on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest from Brazil!
