To forge new technologies and solutions under the extreme conditions of motorsports, we will never stop innovating.
FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP
How The Big Rally Began
Back in 1973, racing officials selected 13 rallies from around the world and organized them into a series featuring contestants competing for the World Championship. That was the starting point for today’s World Rally Championship (WRC). For more than 40 years, the WRC has been the pinnacle of sprint rally racing.
FIA WORLD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP
A challenge of speed—and innovation.
The current FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) was launched in 2012 and is now entering its seventh year.
The WEC series traces its history back to 1953 when the World Championship for Sports Cars was launched, becoming the Endurance Championship in 1981.
The current WEC series was born out of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, which was also organized by the ACO and ran for two years from 2010-2011.
24 Hours of Nürburgring
24 hours of the world’s most grueling course.
The Nürburgring, with its intense up-and-down hills and rough road conditions, is the only track in the world of racing that features the same environment as the general road.
It’s said that running 10 laps at Nürburgring is the equivalent to traveling 800km on public roads.
The 24-hour race spans 100 or more laps, so this might be the best track in the world to test the limits of both man and machine.
Through worldwide motorsports competition, including the WRC, WEC, and the 24HR NÜRBURGRING, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is improving product development, cultivating future automotive workers and connecting with fans.
