Fuji’s win coincides with 20th anniversary weekend of Prius’ launch

Toyota GAZOO Racing earned a one-two finish at its home race following an eventful and rain-affected 6 Hours of Fuji, the seventh round of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). In the #8 TS050 hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), Sébastien Buemi, Anthony Davidson, and Kazuki Nakajima won their third race of the season – Toyota’s fifth victory in six events at Fuji Speedway.

 

The win with the 1,000-hp TS050 hybrid electric vehicle comes at a special time in the history of HEV technology, as it coincides with the 20th anniversary weekend of the launch of the Prius, the world’s first mass-produced hybrid electric car.
