Itís a good base car to start with. May not be the best run, but itís proven runner. As you say they should use their testing time wisely. Just make the system is developed and running without major problems

Althouhg I wouldn't describe 0-60mph in under 3 seconds, and top speed of >170mph as 'incredibly slow'.
Was a joke, Mr Pendantic. Dear me

Absolutely. Plus they know it intimately; they will be able to compare the "hybridised" car with past performance figures from the car as was, discover if it reacts the same to set up change as it used to etc. etc.

And if the worse came to the worse and the chassis suffered major damage there are others out there that may be available (HMS & Tony Gilham).

Presumably, having won the competitive tender to carry out the testing, they are being paid by TOCA/ Cosworth to carry out the tests?

True, but I donít think TOCA are in any hurry atm. They will ask for development when they see fit

Now is as good a time as any to crack on with the hybrid project - testing is back at circuits so if you can get the car up and running there's nothing stopping them starting to put track time on the car. The team's employees will also have more time to dedicate to the hybrid project as they're not busy getting the race car turned around between events at the moment.

Ok, so that pretty much confirms it will be testing in July. Might as well do it then before the season starts

That'll start some Speedworks expanding to two car rumours then

I think they might be better off running the Corolla Saloon. Better aero properties.

Maybe you should tweet them and let them know that.

Saloon is built in Turkey, and sells hardly any here. Can't imagine the Toyota UK marketing department would be keen on that. Estate could work though...
