ORECA To Exit Toyota LMP1 Program At End Of 2019-2020 Season



ORECA will exit working with the Toyota Gazoo Racing team at the end of the 2019-2020 FIA World Endurance Championship season but according to Toyota team director Rob Leupen there will be no impact to the operations of the because of new restrictions on personnel the FIA will place on teams moving forward.
ORECA and Toyota have been partners for eight years from Toyota’s initial launch in the WEC. The FIA has issued a class-wide restriction to 43 crew members for the hybrid-powered hypercar class that is set to compete in 2020-2021.
Currently the Toyota LMP1 program has between 60-65 staffers at each event held for the WEC with ORECA normally having 6-8 crew members there for support.
