Yamaha continue partnership with TOYOTA Racing in 2014

Posted on April 18, 2014

Yamaha Motor Europe (YME) will continue as an ‘Official Supplier of TOYOTA Racing’ for the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship. As part of the collaboration, YME will stimulate TOYOTA Racing’s team mobility by providing Yamaha EC-03 electric (2-wheeler) units for the rounds of Silverstone, Spa and Le Mans.

YME began providing TOYOTA Racing with EC-03 electric vehicles at the start of the team’s participation in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2012. The season resulted in an impressive three wins from six races, TOYOTA Racing receiving the Team Rookie of the Year Award from the FIA, and ultimately being named as the best new WEC team of 2012. The 2013 season also featured several highlights. TOYOTA Racing scored multiple podiums and ended the season on a high with a victory at the final round in Bahrain.
