Kota Sera is reporting "Motorsport technology and culture" seminar.
Hisato Tanaka (TMG) delivered lectures on "Utilizing 3D printing technology for race and the problem of developing that technology to mass production vehicle manufacturing."

It was in 2013 that TMG introduced 3D printing products with metal materials to the real race first time.
It was door hinges of TS030 hybrid made of titanium alloy.
By 3d printing, the strength increased and the weight was reduced by 10%.
In TS050 hybrid, 150 of 3D printing parts are used together for resin/metal.

Thanks for that information. I was actually thinking about this last night because of the F1 suspension parts and if 3D printing would be the future of making parts like these stronger. I didn't know TMG had it in 2013, I thought it was more recent.

B-roll footage of Toyota testing at Aragon (amazing track by the way, it should be on the WEC schedule!)

Interesting bits from http://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/se...ay-notebook-6/

***Toyota Gazoo Racing team director Rob Leupen and team manager John Steeghs are also on-site, although it’s unclear if they have been part of the joint meetings. The Japanese manufacturer is understood to have deployed staff in preparation for the Sebring 2019 race.

***Sportcar365 has learned there was a proposal to have a Toyota TS050 Hybrid run demonstration laps prior to Saturday’s race, although it failed to materialize. It’s understood a post-race testing program had also been under consideration at one point.


They've never really even talked about this event/circuit in the past 7 years so it's encouraging of them to be giving it some considerable thought now and not just thinking of it as mere championship round

Maybe they'll test there next year between December and March

Lifting at the end of that long straight.

Thank god they don't race on that snoozing bit of tarmac though, I remember watching some random Formula Renault races from there years ago and being bored to death on both the profile and surroundings. The only distinctive thing that makes it less boring than say Navarra is the stone wall on the background, but track itself is nothing interesting

In that onboard from Aragon, on the back straight the car boosts all the way to the top of sixth gear. I don't think I've ever seen an LMP1 do that before. Do we think this is track-specific or have Toyota changed their hybrid strategy to combat the fact that the non-hybrids do 350+ km/h down that straight? Maybe they're worried about being sitting ducks at the end of a long straight.



Also, I actually like Aragon.

I noticed that too, that was a mighty boost right there! It sounded like a pause in the boost after a couple of seconds and then the boost came back on for a total of around 8 seconds. That's the longest period of time for a hybrid boost I've heard from the Toyota.

Judging by engine noise, the car was close to revlimit in 6th speed approaching the back straight already.
This may mean maybe that gearbox ratios were in "sprint" mode and they are not looking for top speed.
