It's hard to get excited when in 12 months time it'll get replaced by soulless bop wagons. It's kind of like the last season of TV show when they still (sort of) try something for the ratings but you know it's over

Juntos is heading for a stewards' enquiry!

The thing is... we don't even know if those changes will work. There is term of comparison.

Toyota need to do an evo kit and do a world tour like Porsche. Get some more records for the TS050.

I was thinking the same. They are running 40kg over regulation, take that off and do a little aero adjustment and I bet they could challenge the Porsche Evo times

New front end is higher and the nose cone is thicker. Mirrors are embedded in the bodywork. Bodywork behind the front wheels is changed. Rear bodywork above the diffuser is also changed. I'll try to get side by side images unless someone else does it first.

Good luck with that, especially with high res images. TMG's site has decent res photos probably, but the really good HQ stuff you need to get from TGR's DRM site, and that's geared more for bloggers and websites.

If every car is a special edition then no car is a special edition. I didn't mind the Porsche (but didn't love it), but it's been done now.

Maybe doing an evo kit whilst racing would be nicer. Porsches evo felt worse because they left and then made a new car. "Look at what you could have won!"

More, or less, pointless running against hybrid-less privateers for another season?

Toyota fastest again in the test. Seems it's going to take a lot more for the rivals to catch up. No quick fix is going to reign them in

It's still racing. Still beats setting records with no competition at all for irrelevant kudos....

Still don't get why money was spent on that Porsche record car instead of even just a single entry 919 into a few races and Le Mans. Must have been hit really hard with the budget drop.

The Toyota's did a lot of laps at the prologue, but at least the times were close on the best pace. Looking at the timing results, it doesn't seem like the privateers were going for glory runs during their fast laps. They at least ran 5 or 6 laps. Toyota's best were on longer runs too.

Agreed, but we're opening the can of worms with that one!
