Toyota gets wings clipped for Le Mans

Defending 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Toyota had their wings clipped for this year’s 24 Hours of LeMans to be run this weekend.

A bulletin issued by the FIA Endurance Commission shows that the pair of Toyota TS050 Hybrids will be 7 kg heavier than they were last year when Sebastien Buemi, Fernando Alonso and Kazuki Nakajima won the race for the second time in a row.

The new minimum weight of 895 kg is still 37 kg lighter than what the Japanese manufacturer’s cars have been running to throughout the 2019-20 WEC season, under the success handicap regulations designed to ensure close competition in LMP1.
