Whatever you wish for, Toyota will make it happen. We wished for more information about Toyota’s WRC programme and preparations for 2017 and they have delivered. At this point, we are almost two full years away from their first WRC event, so sooner or later we will reach the point of “I wish the wait was over already”. On the other hand, Volkswagen and Hyundai have demonstrated that even during preparation and development teams can and by all means should keep the communication channels open. We fans are like Labrador retrievers, always hungry (for information). Hopefully Toyota feels the same and we will be able to read and hear more about their ambitions and expectations but also learn more about the actual tech and work behind the scenes. Their current #ThisIsEngineering series explores just that, the engineering behind the project of coming back to one of the most demanding forms of motor sports in the world. Now, keep it going, Toyota, we want to hear from you often.
In this particular video, Toyota Motorsport’s expert talks about the challenge of building a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine and getting it up to speeds and efficiency required by the top class that WRC is. This, of course, is not the only part of the #ThisIsEngineering storyline, so subscribe to Toyota’s video channel, I feel we’ll get to use it often.
