Seems Toyota is prepared for the new regulations either which way they go. Prototype or Hypercar https://sportscar365.com/lemans/wec/...r-involvement/. Endurance-info has a story up too where they say they've already started on the next regulations car.

Follow your heart, listen to your inner voice, stop caring about what others think but let's be honest. They seem lonely here.

I think a red outline along the white nose would be a good idea on this new look. I wonder when they'll test the 2019/2020 car again.

Would it be possible to run their 2017 third car at the LM test day for next season prep? You know like Audi did with their fourth R18 in 2013 test day, for 2014 tyre testing

Looks like Alonso is not coming back next season and Brendon Hartley is in frame to replace him in the #8 car.

Anybody would just prefer if Toyota left the scene for a year or two?

I'm in two minds on that. I love seeing the car as it's stupendous to watch, but now that Audi and Porsche have taken their towels away from the WEC sunbed, it would be good to see some straight privateer competition....

No. As someone who endured the Audi steamroller during the mid 2000s this is not remotely as bad.

I disagree with you on this one. During the R8 & R10 other cars won (MG, Panoz, etc) and were at least in the mix at every race. Then Porsche came in with the RS Spyder and pushed them around for a couple of years during the R10/R15 period. Then we had Peugeot challenge them for a couple of years in the early life of the R18. And for many of those years the Audis were SLOWED to enable the field to race with them.

With Toyota there is no one to challenge them and no one is allowed to challenge them. Everyone is BOP'd out of getting anywhere near them. I have nothing against Toyota as they stayed when everyone else left (kinda like Audi in 2000) but at this point I wish they would take their ball and go home. I'd rather watch the privateers duke it out.

Maybe one country got to see Audi defeated, but in Europe and Le Mans in particular, it was complete domination until the late 2000s. I attended my first Le Mans aged 5 in Ď99 and every year after that, the winner was a dead cert until 2007.

Itís not dissimilar now, other than the manufacturers spending the lower sums are now in GT rather than badge-engineering a prototype or fannying about in 675.
